Can you imagine if Vice President Pence was seen at an event hosted by the Ku Klux Klan? The MSM would hang him. Yet the MSM has no problem with Karen Bass attending events hosted by the Nation of Islam, who’s leader (Louis Farrakhan) is perhaps the most vile anti-Semite in the United States. Bernie Sanders may as well be the Democrat Party’s nominee. How can any Jewish American support the Democrat Party and sleep at night?

EXCLUSIVE: Karen Bass Denies Links To Nation Of Islam, Despite Photos And Event Appearances, But Doesn’t Disavow Radical Group
By Daily Wire, August 4, 2020
- California Rep. Karen Bass, a top contender to be presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s 2020 running mate, denied having ties to the Nation of Islam, despite photos and event appearances linking her to the group.
- Bass has appeared at events and has been photographed with top Nation of Islam official Tony Muhammad, who praised her as one of the few members of Congress he trusts.
- Bass also attended a forum organized by the Final Call, the “official communications organ of the Nation of Islam.”
- Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has described Jewish people as “satanic,” praised Adolf Hitler as a “very great man” and blamed Jewish people for both the Holocaust and 9/11.
Rep. Karen Bass, a top contender to become presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s running mate, appeared at Nation of Islam-linked events, posed for a picture with a top Nation of Islam official, and attended a forum in 2013 hosted by the organization’s official mouthpiece.
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has referred to Jewish people as “satanic,” blamed them for the Holocaust and the Sept. 11, 2011 terrorist attacks, and once praised Adolf Hitler as a “very great man.” Farrakhan has also denounced interracial marriage, which he said has “mongrelized” the black race.
The Nation of Islam holds that white people were created 6,000 years ago as the result of a selective breeding program by a black scientist called Yakub.
“This teaching of the birth of the White race has been central to the belief system in the Nation of Islam and it has been met with hostility and profound resistance by its critics, who have most commonly termed it ‘hate teaching,’” the Final Call, the Nation of Islam’s official mouthpiece, states on its website.
But Bass, a California Democrat, appeared alongside Tony Muhammad, the director of the Nation of Islam’s Western division, at events in 2014 and 2015. Bass is seen posing with Muhammad in a photo posted online by Mablean Ephriam, the former host of Fox television program “Justice With Judge Mable.”
She attended an anti-police brutality event in April 2015 along with Muhammad and other Los Angeles-area activists, video shows. Dr. Mauluna Karenga, the founder of the holiday Kwanzaa, also spoke at the rally.
In 2002, Waters appeared at a Nation of Islam conference where Farrakhan defended Palestinian suicide bombers. “We have Maxine Waters here,” Farrakhan told attendees of the California conference, describing her as “our great congresswoman from this area.”
Waters hasn’t disavowed Farrakhan or the Nation of Islam.
Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison’s ties to Farrakhan began in the 1990s and continued for years after Ellison entered Congress in 2006, despite his statements to the contrary. The Washington Post in March 2018 awarded Ellison four “Pinocchios” — its worst possible fact check rating — for claiming that his relationship with Farrakhan ended before he entered Congress.
