Nation of Islam leader and vicious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan traveled to Iran this week; delivering a hate-filled speech to law students and leading the crowd in a ‘Death to Israel, Death to America’ chant.
The 85-year-old Farrakhan addressed law school students at the University of Tehran Monday; the same day the Trump administration unveiled a series of crippling new sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

“Today, I warn the American government that sanctioning Iran is a big mistake,” said Farrakhan. “America has never been a democracy.”
Donald Trump, Jr. weighed-in on Farrakhan’s hate-filled address minutes later, asking “When will the democrats disavow this guy? Answer: NEVER.”

FARRAKHAN BLUES: Top DEMS UNDER FIRE Over History with Prominent ANTI-SEMITE
Ranking Democrats in the House of Representatives and liberal activists found themselves in hot-water this week; flat-out refusing to condemn Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan after his three-hour long rant against the “Satanic Jew.”
Members of the Republican Jewish Coalition called on seven members of the Congressional Black Caucus to resign Tuesday after the legislator’s connections to the prominent anti-Semite became more evident.
“There’s clearly a double standard,” said the group’s leader. “No, there’s a double double-standard. Not only do you get the progressive left wing and more centrist Democrats who aren’t shy about criticizing President Trump or branding the Republican Party as white nationalists or neo-Nazis, but when it comes to condemning Louis Farrakhan, they’re silent.”
The announcement comes as Rep. James Clyburn -the third highest ranking Democrat in the House- was under fire for “sharing a stage” with the Nation of Islam leader back in 2011.
Left-wing legislators aren’t alone. The Women’s March organization found itself in the spotlight after one of its co-chairs attended Farrakhan’s event, sitting silently as he screamed “the Jews are my enemy.”
“I proudly serve as a leader for one of the largest women’s advocacy organizations in the world. For that reason, my recent presence at the Nation of Islam’s Saviour’s Day convocation troubled some of the very people who I have fought for and worked alongside for most of my life,” wrote the co-chair after refusing to condemn Farrakhan’s remarks.
BUSTED: DC Lawmaker Helped Finance Farrakhan’s Anti-Semitic RANT
A member of the Washington, D.C. city council helped finance the Nation of Islam’s Saviours’ Day event; the prominent rally that featured Louis Farrakhan’s three-hour long rant against the “Satanic Jew.”
According to the Washington Post, council member Trayon White Sr. instructed his team to make a $500 donation to the event; raising new questions over the Democratic party’s relationship to the notorious anti-Semite.
“The Brothers from the Nation are of the few men that show up to help . . . us address crime and social ills in Southeast. They also run a feeding program in several public housing communities in ward 8,” White wrote in a text message. “I’m a Christian but I support a lot of people and all religions who support my community.”
“He said to me, ‘I want you to make a payment to the Nation of Islam for Saviours’ Day,’ ” Darryl Ross, the treasurer, told the Post. “So I went on the website to get the information I needed in order to make the payment.”
