The Democrats who’ve refused to sever ties to Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan are determined to keep their support of the hate preacher going. This is to the demise of their own party but is this the NEW Democrat Party? Is this what they REALLY want?
Not according to the Woman’s March crowd. They’re scattering like crazy to distance themselves from the leaders who are connected to Farrakhan (see more below).
But then you have people like Danny Davis who still refuses to condemn Farrakhan and praises him: ‘He does outstanding things’ (see more below)
Mark Steyn answers the question:
WOMEN’S MARCH CROWD SCATTERS AFTER TIES TO FARRAKHAN REVEALED:
“If . . . these Women’s March leaders are attending his sermons and cheering him on, they should be called out and removed from their roles immediately,” Brooklyn activist Tali Goldsheft told The Post.
Goldsheft is behind a Change.org petition that calls on Women’s March sponsors to cut ties to “hate” and seeks a purge of the movement’s leadership.
“You feel stabbed in the back. It feels like someone you trust just punched you in the gut . . . I’m really wounded,” said former Women’s March supporter Nisi Jacobs, 49, a Manhattan resident.
Jacobs, who helped draft the Change.org petition to depose Mallory and the rest of the Women’s March leadership, has launched an alternative group, Women’s March For All.
“I’d had enough,” Jacobs said.
DEMOCRAT CONGRESSMAN DANNY DAVIS ON FARRAKHAN: ‘He does outstanding things’
Via Daily Caller:
Democratic Illinois Rep. Danny Davis thinks Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a notorious racist and anti-Semite, does “outstanding work” but doesn’t agree with Farrakhan’s positions that white people are “devils” and Jewish people are satanic.
That’s what Davis told The Daily Caller News Foundation in a phone interview on Friday evening. Davis also said that black politicians refrain from weighing in on Farrakhan in order to help their electoral chances.
“I disagree with Minister Farrakhan in terms of white people being devils and Jewish people being satanic, and so I disagree with him saying that. But I also protect his right as a free individual to say and do whatever he wants to do, but I disagree with that statement. I know Minister Farrakhan, I’ve been to his house, I got the permit for the Million Man March. So I disagree with that statement, but other than that, I think he does outstanding things for, especially for blacks who are unsure about themselves, people who’ve been in prison,” Davis said.
