Rep. André Carson (D-IN) attacked the Republican Jewish Coalition and admitted to meeting with anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan during an interview with Fox 59 on Friday.

The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) called on several Democratic members of Congress to resign, including Carson, after it had been reported they had met with Farrakhan.

Farrakhan, who has routinely spoken disparagingly about the Jewish people, was once again in the national headlines after he described Jewish people as his “enemy.”

Fox 59 asked Carson about the RJC calling on him to resign from Congress.

“That organization doesn’t have any credibility with me. I know they have a political agenda,” Carson responded. “The Congressional Black Caucus is asking that organization to condemn Benjamin Netanyahu and the government for discriminating against Africans who are migrating, who are fleeing dictatorships, who are fleeing oppression. There’s a great deal of bigotry and racism happening right now that they failed to condemn.”

Carson then admitted to meeting with Farrakhan, “as have other members of the Congressional Black Caucus.”

“I condemn any form of discrimination,” Carson concluded.
