JUST AWFUL: LA Times Defends Poisonous Anti-Semite and Racist Louis Farrakhan – Compares Him to President Trump
Here we go.
The vile left is now defending notorious anti-Semite and racist Louis Farrakhan.
This is really happening.
Los Angeles Times columnist Robin Abcarian praised Louis Farrakhan in her weekly column while attacking President Trump.
We now have liberal leaders openly defending this famed anti-Semite and notorious racist.
In November Louis Farrahkan led chants of “Death to America!” in Tehran.

That was less than 2 months ago.
The LA Times is already excusing this and defending Farrakhan.
Via the LA Times:
It’s been a long two years since millions converged on Washington, D.C., for the Women’s March, an idea that grew out of a suggestion Teresa Shook, a Hawaii lawyer and educator, spontaneously made to some friends.
Like many Americans, she was shocked that Donald Trump, who had been accused by more than a dozen women of sexual assault and who boasted that he could grab any woman he wanted by the genitals, had attained the highest office in the land. This was a man who ragged on immigrants and bragged that he could get away with shooting someone on Fifth Avenue.
Maybe in retrospect the idea seems obvious, but it didn’t in November 2016: How about a march the day after Trump’s inauguration to protest his incoming administration? The proposal made its way from Shook’s social circle to Pantsuit Nation, the pro-Hillary Clinton Facebook group, and touched a nerve.
While Trump was spewing lies about the size of his inaugural crowd, people in cities around the world turned out to protest the election of a man they believed had no business in the White House, and who has proved again and again over the last two years that he has only his own best interests, and maybe Vladimir Putin’s, at heart.
The march was a stunning success.
I didn’t know then about the behind-the-scenes machinations among the women who had taken control of the march and were working to harness its momentum to create a national organization dedicated to advancing the rights of women and the LGBTQ community.
But accusations of anti-Semitism against some of the organizers began to percolate. It seemed that the controversy might even threaten the legitimacy of the nascent organization…
…Personally, I find Farrakhan’s world view vile. Yet, I think it is possible to be repulsed by his hateful rhetoric about white people, especially Jews, and still appreciate some of the empowerment work that he has done in the black community, including leading the 1995 Million Man March to promote African American family unity.
If that is hypocrisy, there is plenty to go around.
