Democrats have a massive scandal brewing on their hands.

One their party’s top leaders was caught lying to the American people about his past associations with Louis Farrakhan.

And now his closed door meetings with the anti-white racist could doom the Democrats in November.

In 1995, Ellison worked with the racist and anti-Semitic leader of the Nation of Islam on the Million Man March.

And it was recently reported that he attended a dinner with Farrakhan and the President of Iran.

Ellison has tried to downplay his previous ties to Farrakhan, but even more disturbing information has now come to light.

Keith Ellison – who is the Deputy Chairman of the Democrat National Committee – has met with Louis Farrakhan on at least three occasions.

The Daily Caller reports:

“Ellison attended at least three meetings where Farrakhan was present — including a private visit to Farrakhan’s hotel room — according to photos and videos reviewed by TheDC and Farrakhan’s own statements.

Ellison has publicly responded to questions about one of those meetings — a private dinner for American Muslim leaders hosted by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in 2013 revealed by the Wall Street Journal on Friday — but his office declined to return a phone call and multiple emails from TheDC regarding the other two meetings.

Johari Abdul-Malik, then director at Dar Al Hijrah Islamic Center in Virginia, uploaded a YouTube video in 2013 that shows Ellison casually chatting among a crowd of men, including Farrakhan. The video is short — just 28 seconds —- but what it shows is indisputable: Ellison comfortably socializing in the same group as Farrakhan, decades after Ellison supposedly cut ties with him.

The exact date of the video is unclear, but Abdul-Malik’s caption indicates it took place no earlier than 2010. In the video, Farrakhan is seen hugging Muslim American activist Mahdi Bray. “Min Farrakhan gives thanks for Mahdi Bray’s recovery from stroke,” Abdul-Malik wrote. Bray suffered his stroke in 2010, according to PBS.”

And just recently, a photograph of a smiling Barack Obama standing next to Farrakhan at a Congressional Black Caucus meeting in 2005 also resurfaced.

The Daily Caller reported they contacted 21 members of the Congressional Black Caucus and all refused to condemn the Nation of Islam leader:

“TWENTY-ONE MEMBERS OF THE CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS FACING QUESTIONS ABOUT THEIR TIES TO NATION OF ISLAM CHIEF LOUIS FARRAKHAN HAVE ALL REFUSED TO CONDEMN THE HATE GROUP LEADER.

THE CBC, IT WAS RECENTLY REVEALED, HELD A SECRET MEETING WITH FARRAKHAN IN 2005 BUT HID IT FROM THE PUBLIC TO AVOID CONTROVERSY. TWENTY-ONE MEMBERS OF THE CAUCUS TODAY WERE PART OF THE CAUCUS AT THE TIME OF THE SECRET FARRAKHAN MEETING. ALL 21 DECLINED TO DENOUNCE FARRAKHAN WHEN ASKED BY THE DAILY CALLER.

THE NATION OF ISLAM IS SO EXTREME THAT EVEN THE LEFT-WING SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER RECOGNIZES IT AS A HATE GROUP, CITING THE GROUP’S “THEOLOGY OF INNATE BLACK SUPERIORITY OVER WHITES AND THE DEEPLY RACIST, ANTI-SEMITIC AND ANTI-GAY RHETORIC OF ITS LEADERS.””

Democrats and the media like to create scandals out of the most extreme fringe figures on the right – who always have no association with candidates – for spewing vile and racist garbage.

But in this case, Ellison – who is a national leader in their party – did associate, and multiple times, with an individual who actually does hate white people and individuals of the Jewish faith.

Identity politics destroyed the Democrats in 2016.

As one of the top leaders of the party, Ellison is setting the Democrats up for another defeat in 2018 by embracing the most extreme and fringe version of identity politics possible.
