  • The 20 Worst Quotes From Louis Farrakhan, Liberal America's Favorite Racist

    David Duke and Richard Spencer have small numbers of fringe supporters and they’re considered to be pariahs on the Right. Just to give you a rough idea of their support, even the unreliable and highly suspect Southern Poverty Law Center estimates that there are only somewhere between 5,000-8,000 KKK members in the United States. In other words, those numbers could be high by a substantial amount. In addition, Duke and Spencer are universally reviled by every mainstream conservative publication and no Republican in Congress wants to be associated with them. In fact, the only reason anyone talks about either of...

    Come for the Democratic schadenfreude, stick around for … more Democratic schadenfreude. Liberal firebrand Alan Dershowitz demanded the firing of Rep. Keith Ellison as deputy chair of the DNC after lying about his contacts with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, on whom new scrutiny has been applied to his long history of anti-Semitic declarations. “He ought to be treated the way we treat David Duke,” Dershowitz demanded, adding, “If any Republican dared to meet with David Duke, that would be the end of their career. … We don’t have affirmative action when it comes to bigotry.”Don’t hold your...

    300 Rabbis, including the Chief Rabbi of Israel, vowed at a conference of the Rabbinical Center of Europe (RCE) to “wake the EU from its dangerous slumber” by engaging in a concerted campaign of outreach and awareness raising at EU and Member State level, said RCE Director Rabbi Menachem Margolin Tuesday. […] The two-day conference dealt with issues affecting Jewish Law, heard many more voices than usual saying that a line needed to be drawn, and that the EU needed to do much, much more to defend religious freedom across Europe. Rabbi Margolin said in a statement: “Never before have...

    Monday, March 12, 2018 Fake Antisemitism and Real Antisemitism Posted by Daniel Greenfield After weeks of outrage at the close ties between top Democrats and Louis Farrakhan, the leader of an anti-Semitic hate group, the media finally condemned anti-Semitism by a top political official. President Trump and OMB Director Mick Mulvaney had referred to outgoing NEC Director Gary Cohn as a “globalist.” And “globalist,” according to Think Progress, the Huffington Post, Salon and Vox, is an “anti-Semitic slur.” Those are the same media outlets that had no problem using “globalist” as a slur when targeting Trump. HuffPo had published a...

    Jewish groups are criticizing Russian President Vladimir Putin after he suggested Russian minorities such as Jews or Tatars could be behind alleged meddling in the 2016 US presidential election. Putin was speaking with NBC News’ Megyn Kelly as she repeatedly asked him about Russian involvement in the election. Last month, special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for allegedly meddling in the 2016 presidential election, charging them with conspiracy to defraud the United States. “Maybe they’re not even Russians,” he said. “Maybe they’re Ukrainians, Tatars, Jews, just with Russian citizenship. Even that needs to be...

    Police pulled three security guards away on Thursday afternoon after they marched on the Israeli stand at the ITB Berlin tourism fair shouting “Free Palestine.” The men, who were employed at the ITB Berlin fair by a private security firm, surrounded the Israeli tourism board’s stand and shouted “Free Palestine” and “Freiheit für Palästina”, according to Tagesspiegel. Police pulled the men away and they were later suspended from their jobs. According to witnesses spoken to by Tagesspiegel, the three men appeared to be of Arabic background. …

    Twitter has refused to comment on anti-Semitic tweets from Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, including one where he writes "the Jews have control over those agencies [FBI] of government." When reached for a response by Fox News, a Twitter spokesman said the company does not comment on individual accounts. The spokesman pointed Fox News to the company's help center, where it details its enforcement options and its approach to enforcement philosophy and policy development. The 84-year-old Farrakhan posted several bizarre tweets regarding Jews this week, including the aforementioned tweet about government agencies, specifically the FBI.

    The European Union (EU) on Friday issued a sharply worded statement in which it criticized the law that was approved this week in the Knesset, which allows the permanent residency of terrorists to be revoked. “This week, the Israeli Knesset adopted legislation which empowers the Israeli Minister of Interior to revoke the permanent residency status of persons involved in terrorism, treason or espionage,” the statement said. While the EU stressed it “rejects terrorism in all its forms”, it warned that “the new law could make the residency status of Palestinians in East Jerusalem, a protected population under International Humanitarian Law,...

    FULL TITLE: Valerie Jarrett gets destroyed by Meghan McCain after she makes excuses for Farrakhan meeting Women’s March organizer Valerie Jarrett appeared on The View on Friday and gave a surprising defense of a Women’s March organizer over her ties noted anti-semite and racist Louis Farrakhan. The conversation turned on national co-chair of the Women’s March Tamika Mallory and her embrace of the radical leader Farrakhan. “So, is this guilt by association we’re talking about here, or should she basically be taken out of the leadership position? What do you think?” Behar asked. “It’s not just that she attended. She...

    Rep. Danny Davis (D., Ill.) released a statement Thursday evening denouncing anti-Semitic Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan after J Street, a liberal Jewish group, said it was reevaluating its endorsement of him after a weak statement Monday. A month early, The Forward reports, Davis called Farrakhan an "outstanding human being." The congressman had also downplayed the importance of Farrakhan's anti-Semitism by saying "The world is so much bigger than Farrakhan and the Jewish question and his position on that and so forth." After criticism from the Jewish community, Davis' statement Monday did not address his own words about "the...

    Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) said that none of his colleagues ever asked him about his connections with controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan as he campaigned to take over as the lead sponsor of a single-payer health care bill, ripping the media for focusing on "this Farrakhan thing." Ellison, who serves as deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, has faced increased scrutiny lately over his prior membership in the Nation of Islam and his reported meetings in recent years with Farrkhan, an outspoken bigot who espouses conspiracy theories about Jews and whites. On Wednesday, Ellison received unanimous...

    The leaders of the Women’s March are struggling to deal with the group’s ties to notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, and they are concerned about the effects on their "intersectional" movement. The leaders of the Women’s March have said the Farrakhan controversy is part of a "learning process" that has to do with understanding people’s "different experiences," BuzzFeed reported. Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, said in a speech that Jews are "the mother and father of apartheid," and declared that "when you want something in this world, the Jew holds the door." Women’s March co-chair Tamika Mallory attended...

    Tamika Mallory, Women’s March organizer and co-president, is defending herself after facing backlash for attending a Nation of Islam event last month where Rev. Louis Farrakhan made anti-Semitic remarks. "I didn’t expect my presence at Saviour’s Day to lead anyone to question my beliefs,” Mallory wrote in a News One op-ed, noting that she’s attended the event for over 30 years and the significant role the Nation of Islam has played in her life.

    Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is an anti-Semite. This isn't in question. It's a fact, and one the minister continues to underscore with each speech. Last week, he spoke before the 2018 Saviours' Day event in Chicago. He stated: "White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan, by God's grace, has pulled the cover off the eyes of that Satanic Jew, and I'm here to say your time is up, your world is through." Just for good measure, he added, "Jews were responsible for all of this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood is putting...

    {Originally posted to the JNS website} Is there a difference between left-wing anti-Semites and right-wing Jew-haters? Advertisement In theory, the answer is no. Hate is hate, no matter what it’s source. Except for some, including many Jews, the source of the hate does seem to matter. If, for example, you think right-wing hate is inherently more dangerous, you might give a pass to haters on the left or at least pay a bit less attention to them. Just as important, if you’re inclined to think that the source of anti-Jewish prejudice matters more than anything else, you might also disregard...

    "Marcin Czepelak, the Ambassador of Poland in The Netherlands, doesn't agree with the international criticism that the holocaust law which the Polish parliament has recently adopted is a way to stifle the academic debate on the history of Poland in the Second World War." I am observing with growing concern the media coverage on recent events in Poland, especially misunderstandings and misperceptions around the new law on the National Institute of Remembrance (Instytut Pamięci Narodowej – IPN). In many cases they tend to present Polish actions as motivated by nationalistic feelings or intention to whiten our history. Which is even...

    Associated Press ^ | Feb 25, 2018 12:46 PM EST | Egill Bjarnason
    Icelandic lawmakers are considering a law that would ban the circumcision of boys for non-medical reasons, making it the first European country to do so. Some religious leaders in Iceland and across Europe have called the bill an attack on religious freedom. It is seen as a particular threat by Jews and Muslims who traditionally embrace the practice. Under the proposed law, the circumcision of boys — removing the foreskin of the penis, usually when the child is a newborn — would be viewed as equal to female genital mutilation and punishable by up to six years in prison.
