This meeting happened back in 2013, and the Democrats who attended that dinner were Reps. Gregory Meeks of New York, Keith Ellison of Minnesota, and Andre Carson of Indiana. What seems to be another interesting element about this case is the fact that notorious anti-Semite and black supremacist Louis Farrakhan also attended that meeting. As everyone knows, this is the man who repeatedly calls Jews “Satanic,” and is the leader of the hate group Nation of Islam.
Apparently, the Iranian president was in New York for a United Nations meeting. As reported by the Journal, he held the controversial dinner party just hours after speaking to the U.N. General Assembly.
Over the last few decades, Iran has been the most prominent sponsor of terrorism around the world. As a matter of fact, the United States has listed the Islamic Republic as a state sponsor of terrorism since 1984.
Naturally, it is quite terrible the fact that three prominent Democratic Congressmen decided to have a meeting with the chief of a state that repeatedly swears “Death to America” in its cities and mosques.
However, what seems to be the common denominator between those who attended the infamous dinner party is their pro-Islam and anti-Israel stance.
What seems quite disgusting about this case is the fact that even when the Final Call article was published, the Democrats’ presence at the infamous dinner remained secret until the Journal revealed it on Friday.
Unsurprisingly, none of these Democratic Congressmen have provided any comment regarding the meeting with the supremacist leader and the Iranian president.
Meeks, Carson, and Ellison’s attendance at the 2013 dinner represents the latest tie between Farrakhan and the Democratic members of the Congressional Black Caucus.
While many expressed their surprise over this revelation, the truth is that the Black Caucus always had a decent relationship with the hate group Nation of Islam. As a matter of fact, some of its most prominent members have refused to denounce Farrakhan over the last few years.
One of the most famous cases directly involves Keith Ellison, who is also the vice-chair of the Democratic National Committee, which is not surprising considering that he always had a hard time in putting a distance between himself and the black supremacist.
Back in 1995, Ellison attended Farrakhan’s Million Man March, which represented one of the most horrible cases where a U.S. politician publicly supported hate group. Naturally, he suffered no consequences.
Another infamous case was when Ellison publicly defended the black supremacist leader against charges of anti-Semitism, despite the fact he was already known for calling Jews “Satanic.”
After his ties with the Nation of Islam leader hindered his campaign for DNC in 2017, Ellison decided to write an op-ed for the Washington Post in which he claimed that his only tie with Farrakhan was the 1995 march.
The most surprising element of this situation was that Farrakhan got extremely angry by this op-ed. Believe it or not, he even dared to dispute that characterization in a video posted on social media where he said that Carson and Ellison visited him two years before.
Another case that clearly shows the ties between the Congressional Black Caucus and the Nation of Islam happened in 2015 when both groups had a controversial secret meeting.
In this event, then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama took a smiling picture with the black supremacist. After 13 years held in secret, the controversial photo was finally published.
A Final Call photographer said he suppressed this picture for so long at the Black Caucus’ request, in order to prevent any kind of damage to Obama’s political career.
Naturally, almost every single political analyst believes that Obama wouldn’t have a chance to winning the 2008 presidential election if the mainstream media would have shown that photo.
After all, the Nation of Islam is such an extreme organization that even left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center was forced to recognize it as a hate group.
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, Farrakhan’s group is deeply racist, anti-Semitic, and even homophobic.
