    DNC Chair cavorts with Iranian President, Louis Farrakhan.

    A racist leader for the party of racists.....

    Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.), deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, attended a private event with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in 2013, according to a newly resurfaced report.

    Anti-bigotry organizations have long pegged Farrakhan as both racist and anti-Semitic, citing his praise of Adolf Hitler, his obsession with Jews, and his belief that white people are subhumans created by an ancient African scientist.

    During the late 1980s through the 1990s, Ellison wrote a series of columns defending Farrakhan and embracing extremist black separatist positions. Writing under the name "Keith Hakim," Ellison proclaimed that Farrakhan was "a role model for black youth" and defended a University of Minnesota campus speaker who claimed that "the Zionists joined with the Nazis in murdering Jews, so they would flee to Palestine."

    When first running for Congress in 2006, Ellison apologized to Jewish leaders and wrote in a letter that "I have long since distanced myself from and rejected the Nation of Islam."

    The original source for this story dates back to 2013, so I'm knocking it out of Current Events.

    Not sure what makes this a story. Iran had just elected a new president, and Rep. Keith Ellison took the opportunity to meet with him.

    ... and?

    Right - "re-surfaced." It was published back in 2013 (I shared the link in post #2). And brought up again in 2018. That doesn't make it a current event, unless there's been some update to the story.

    Must find something (anything involving a Democrat) to distract from Trump's latest fuck-ups with not being able to properly vet people getting classified information in the WH. A story from 2013 is the best they could do, lol.

    There's really nothing to the subject of the thread.

    Five years ago, Iran elected a new president. A few months later, congressmen Meeks (NY) and Keith Ellison (MN) attended a meeting hosted by the new president. Others in attendance included Mustapha Farrakhan. The discussion revolved around the Iranian president’s speech and how to move forward in regard to relations with the United States.

    All of this information was available to the public in 2013. What more is there to add in 2018?
    Thanks from OldGaffer
