While Democrats often preach tolerance, a lot of the times they are the most anti-tolerant people imaginable. Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison was caught meeting with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan has attacked Jews several times and blamed them for all of the worlds problems.
Despite this, Ellison was fine meeting with him on three separate occasions. When asked about these meetings, Ellison’s spokesperson Karthik Ganapathy attacked the media for having the audacity to report on the meetings.
“Rep. Ellison has advocated a pluralistic, peaceful and broadly prosperous vision for our nation’s future his entire career, and the idea that matters less than whether or not he was once upon a time standing near somebody is an insane symptom of how our country’s political media coverage is so broken,” said Ganapathy.
“Rep. Ellison knows Minnesotans understand that standing in a room doesn’t mean you endorse every view of everyone else in that room, and wishes the space being used to print this story was instead spent calling more attention to the scourge of white nationalist gun violence, or the deportation threat facing hundreds of thousands of young immigrants across our country,” said Ganapathy.
Farrakhan is on record for calling Hitler a ‘very great man’. Do you think Ellison owes some type of real explanation for these three meetings?
