Republican Jewish Coalition calls for resignation of 7 Democrats over 'ties' to Farrakhan
Yahoo News ^ | 3/8/18 | DAVID CAPLAN

The Republican Jewish Coalition is calling for the resignation of seven Democratic members of Congress whom it claims are "connected" to controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. The group describes him as a "known anti-Semite."

Farrakhan has routinely spoke disparagingly about Jews over the years, as well as white people, in general. He was thrust into the mainstream spotlight again this week after excerpts from a speech he gave last week on the Nation of Islam's Saviour's Day surfaced online. During the speech, he once again described Jewish people -- who he says "are my enemy" -- in a pejorative manner.

The lobbying group on Tuesday called for the following lawmakers to step down: Reps. Keith Ellison, D-Minn.; Barbara Lee, D-Calif.; Maxine Waters, D-Calif.; Danny Davis, D-Ill.; Andre Carson, D-Ind.; Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y.; and Al Green, D-Texas.

The aforementioned lawmakers have at one point in their careers while in the House -- but not necessarily anytime recently nor with any frequency -- met Farrakhan. In a report it published Tuesday, The Daily Caller outlined the various previous interactions, based on videos and photos.

ABC News has reached out to each of the seven lawmakers for comment on the Republican Jewish Coalition's call for their resignations.

RJC Calls on Seven Farrakhan-connected Members of Congress to Resign

Davis told The Daily Caller in a statement Monday, without specifically addressing Farrakhan, anti-Semitism is "antithetical to everything I believe and everything that I work for on a daily basis." Davis also described Farrakhan as an "outstanding human being."

In a statement to ABC News on Thursday, Davis clarified the omission of Farrakhan from the aforementioned statement, and condemned the Nation of Islam leader's comments about Jews.

Tweets, including a couple of rather disingenuous ones from Rep Meeks at link. Also worth noting the Minn NEA is in favor of allowing some, just SOME mind you registered sex offenders to works in the public schools (A Modest Proposal, anyone?) Ellison, the first House member to TAKE HIS OATH OF OFFICE ON A KORAN supports this. What does this tell us?

Take it from me, these people named are shocked, shocked that the Race Card is not protecting them from criticism thus far.
“Maybe if I hold the card this way instead of the other way....Did you forget that I’m Black?”

We need Jews to speak up. And we need Catholics and Protestants and any good Americans to speak up. We survived eight years of the Demonkraps stoking the fires of division, dissection, and racism. We can I’ll afford letting them continue now

Oh, I can only imagine the outcry by these pieces of traitorous filth and their followers. The race card will be flashed over and over again. But it’s not the race that’s being objected to, it’s the association with a vicious antisemite like Farrakhan. However, you’ll never get that through the dense, barely endowed with neural matter heads of these folks or their stupid followers who keep voting them in.

Yes it is good but why is it that it takes a REPUBLICAN
Jewish group to bring up the issue? Liberal Jewish
groups don’t have a problem with Calypso Louie? No
explaining liberals.

Just think of the stink Democrats would make if seven senators had met with David Duke. DC would be on fire.

The dems will not resign. Being a friend of racist-hater farrakhan is a badge of honor among dems. Search for the picture of obama and farrakhan.

as the RJC might say, “all schwartzes,” serving only thanks to gerrymandering to allow for “diversity” in the House.

They won't, but the issue should be raised. It should also be pointed out the Louis isn't a big fan of white devils either. That's also worth noting.

“Liberal Jewish groups don’t have a problem with Calypso Louie? No explaining liberals.”

Jewish liberals are closet Socialists, but they don’t know it. They really believe what they are doing is for the common good, but cannot comprehend why this is a bad thing.

I should know. I have an entire family of them, (close to 60 people) with the exception of my son.

True, but history is replete with examples that the eradication of such evil has often required more than just speaking up.
