Rep. John Conyers honors Farrakhan after denouncing his anti-Semitism
American Thinker ^ | February 25, 2014 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 02/26/2014 5:47:11 AM PST by SJackson

Rep. John Conyers, one of the founders of the Congressional Black Caucus and widely considered the dean of the African-Americans in Congress, bestowed a great honor on Louis Farrakhan over the weekend, by attending a three hour sermon before a crowd of 18,000 people in Detroit, sitting behind him and thereby implicitly endorsing his hateful message.

Conyers was already well-acquainted with Farrakhan's hateful messages, having last year publicly condemned him. Caroline May writes in the Daily Caller:

Last May, Conyers attended another Farrakhan speech at the Fellowship Chapel in Detroit where the black nationalist leader said President Obama "surrounded himself with Satan," talked about "Satanic Jew," the "Synagogue of Satan," and the like. Conyers ended up having to condemn his remarks.

"Last Friday, I attended a speech by Minister Louis Farrakhan at Fellowship Chapel in Detroit, Michigan. During this speech, Minister Farrakhan made unacceptable racist, anti-Semitic, and homophobic statements, which I condemn in the strongest possible terms," Conyers said at the time, adding that he believed the Nation of Islam Leader would be focused on Detroit revitalization efforts.

Of course he would. Farrakhan is one of them,[the Democrats]. If he ran for elected office today on the Democrat Party ticket, he would get at least the same percentage of the Jewish vote that Barry did.

I would rather suffer six broken ribs (again) than sit through a THREE HOUR “sermon” by that worthless piece of crap.

I’ll bet Conyers had his hearing aids turned all the way down and was discreetly playing angry birds on his iPhone through the whole thing.

“Of course he would. Farrakhan is one of them,[the Democrats].”

The Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that’s a good name. Hitler was a very great man.

Louis Farrakhan

Qaddafi is hated because he is the leader of a small country that is rich, but he uses his money to finance liberation struggles.

Louis Farrakhan

They call them terrorists, I call them freedom fighters.

Louis Farrakhan

The fundamental philosophies of Western civilization are rooted in white supremacy. You can’t bring a black child into that kind of educational environment and produce a child who loves and respects itself. You produce a child who bows down to white people and looks at white people as being God. . . . This is why Malcolm X left school and went into criminal life.

—Louis Farrakhan,

Conyers, there is a lot to like about this piece of trash..NOT

ABOVE IS JUST A PORTION OF WHAT THE OBAMAS FRIEND TEACHES..
