“On the Holmes Front, with Frank Holmes”
If Democrats had any shame, they’d kick seven congressmen out of the House of Representatives – immediately!
These liberal representatives openly support someone so hateful, so radioactive, that even talking with him would get any Republican fired in a heartbeat.
These seven Democrats all have close ties to Louis Farrakhan, the notoriously anti-Semitic leader of the Nation of Islam.
He’s no less hateful than a neo-Nazi, but he has a much larger following – including some high-powered Democrats on Capitol Hill.
The seven Democrats who met with him include: California Reps. Maxine Waters and Barbara Lee, Illinois Rep. Danny Davis, Indiana Rep. Andre Carson, Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, New York Rep. Gregory Meeks, and Texas Rep. Al Green.
Everyone in this Hall of Shame cozied up to the hatemonger after they were elected to Congress.
Footage from 2006 shows Congressmen Waters, Green, and Lee hugging and shaking hands with Farrakhan.
They gave Farrakhan access to huge amounts of power — even though he’s an open racist with a cult-like following.
Some of them have been tied to Farrakhan for decades. Rep. Keith Ellison – the number-two man in the Democratic Party – was a true believer in the group’s racist version of Islam for years.
“Keith was in the Nation in 1995,” Farrakhan said during a speech late last month in Chicago. “He was selling The Final Call newspaper. He was a beautiful brother.”
He said Ellison only quit the group so that he could get his hands on real power… and he succeeded.
Despite his close relationship with Farrakhan, Ellison is now deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, where he sets the agenda for the entire Democratic Party.
Undercover photos show that Ellison kept on meeting with Farrakhan after being voted into high office, having multiple private meetings or dinners with him over several years.
Now a civil rights group is demanding Congressional leaders do the right thing and fire all seven of these congressmen, pronto.
For meeting with and embracing Louis Farrakhan, nothing short of resignation is acceptable from these seven Democrats,” said the Republican Jewish Coalition on Tuesday.
“Farrakhan is the moral equivalent of a leader of the KKK,” the group said. “If it was discovered that members of Congress had met with the leader of the KKK, they would need to resign.”
Prominent members of both political parties have said that these Democrats must quit, ASAP. Former White House spokesman Ari Flesicher tweeted:
If seven members of Congress met with David Duke, they’d all be gone. The seven Farrakhan-Members need to go. https://t.co/Tw1lPe0F5P

Opposing hate isn’t a partisan issue.
Even the lawyer who paid for the phony Russian dossier about Donald Trump, Marc Elias, tweeted:
Farrakhan is a vile anti-Semite. Period. There is no context or explanation. If you are unable to say this clearly and unequivocally then you are not part of the same party or movement that I have fought my entire life to support. https://t.co/pBxF5wX5cK

But the DNC isn’t listening to its most reasonable supporters – and the congressmen have doubled-down on their support for the Nation of Islam leader.
Even after getting caught, Danny Davis called Farrakhan an “outstanding human being!”
If the Democratic Party had any sense of justice, it would call special elections in all seven districts and kick all seven out of Congress. It’s not like they have anything to lose – all seven districts are safe Democratic seats they’d be sure to win.
Either they secretly share some of Farrakhan’s hatred… or they’re too gutless to stand up to him.
