When will democrats disavow the racism, anti-Semitism, anti-Americanism, and treason from the leader of the Nation of Islam (NOI) Louis Farrakhan?

Spoiler alert:  NEVER.

Recently, he traveled to Iran to criticize the United States for reversing the Iran Deal and applying sanctions.  But he did it in one of the most disgusting, inflammatory, and possibly treasonous way:

“Is it not true that you have called America the Great Satan?” Farrakhan asked in a video published by the Middle East Research Institute (MERI). “Well, if you believe what you say, then would not Satan be actively involved in trying to destroy a nation that is set up on the belief and practice of submission to the will of God?”

Indeed, the Islamic Republic of Iran has enshrined a harsh Shia vision of Sharia (Islamic law), based on applying Islam to all realms of life via state control.

“Islam” means “submission” in Arabic, and the name of the religion refers to the idea that all Muslims should submit to Allah. Enforcing this submission is the goal of radical Islamic terrorists like ISIS. Muslims disagree on how that submission works, however, and many patriotic American Muslims have argued that, despite Islam’s long history of uniting Sharia and state, it is not the government’s business to force people to practice Islam.

Okay, so that’s bad enough.  But then…

Farrakhan, whose racially charged version of Islam unites the religion with a brand of black power politics, sided entirely with Iran over the United States, even going so far as to lead a “Death to America!” chant. The NOI leader did not explicitly say “Death to America!” but he did say “Death to Israel,” and then led the crowd.

Farrakhan chanted in Farsi, “Death to…” leading the crowd to add, “America!” He started again, “Death to…” with the repeating refrain, “America!”

Watch it here:

Previously, he told Iranian officials, “The American government is plotting against you every day.”  To make matters worse, he told them he knew of American plans to attack several Islamic countries—“because it is impossible to change the way of thinking of Islamic Iran, they never sleep and are always working to create an internal enemy in Iran.”  I guess he expects us to believe — or at least Iranian officials to believe — that he and Donald Trump are hanging out plotting World War III?

He should actually be arrested and jailed for treason.

Note:  though conservative bloggers like Gay Patriot — who has famously said that being conservative is against Twitter’s Use of Service — Twitter still lets Farrakhan broadcast anti-Semitic posts all day long.  For example, he claimed recently that he’s not an anti-Semite, he’s rather “anti-termite.” (Facebook took down his post, though it is still up on Twitter.  As a Jew and an American, I won’t link to it.)  Some liberals condemned this statement, including Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), Rep. Greg Meeks (D-N.Y.), and Chelsea Clinton. However, the fact that 100% of liberals don’t denounce this creep is revolting.

His opposition should total more than three libs, no?

One good thing about the Left’s continued embrace of this guy: at least we know where they stand.
