For too long the Democratic Party has been given a pass for associating with notorious Jew hater Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam. As part of the renewed battle against anti-Semitism in the wake of the Pittsburgh Synagogue massacre it is time that Democrats permanently denounce Farrakhan, apologize for associating with him and the Nation of Islam and promise to never again have anything to do with Farrakhan or the Nation of Islam.
Photographs and video over the decades show Democrat presidents, presidential candidates and other elected Democrats standing side by side with Farrakhan. As recently as two months ago Farrakhan shared the stage at the funeral for Aretha Franklin with former President Bill Clinton and two former Democratic Party presidential candidates Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Jackson and Sharpton both have histories of anti-Semitism.
