RNC: DNC Must Address Ellison’s Ties to Anti-Semite Farrakhan

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released a statement calling on Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez to address DNC Vice Chair Rep. Keith Ellison’s (D-MN) “pattern of lies surrounding his relationship with Louis Farrakhan” on Friday.

“Keith Ellison’s long pattern of lies about his ongoing relationship with Louis Farrakhan, who the Anti-Defamation League calls ‘America’s leading anti-Semite,’ has put a stain on the Democrat Party,” RNC Chairwoman McDaniel said in a statement. “Anti-Semitism has no place in American politics. [DNC Chair] Tom Perez must address this issue.”

Farrakhan is a noted anti-Semite who in the past has called the Jewish people his “enemy,” “satanic,” and claimed the Jewish people are responsible for “filth and degenerate behavior,” while also praising Adolf Hitler as a “very great man.”

In the 1980s and 1990s, Ellison defended Farrakhan, as well as speakers who accused Jews of collaborating with Nazis, and called Farrakhan a “role model for black youth.”

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) cited Ellison’s deep connection to the anti-Semitic leader as one of the reasons why Ellison was not qualified to be DNC chair when he ran for that position last year.

During a recent interview with CNN, Ellison said that he had “no relationship” with Farrakhan, a claim that the Washington Post fact-checkers gave four Pinocchios on Friday.

The Republican Jewish Coalition recently called on Ellison to resign from Congress because of his ties to Farrakhan.
