As if we needed any more proof that the Democratic Party has become a party of extremists, we now have the Nation of Islam’s chief honcho Louis Farrakhan joining forces with Democrats in defending Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s inflammatory rants regarding 9/11 along with a long list of anti-Semitic comments.
On Tuesday the Nation of Islam’s research group ran a video on Twitter that alleged 9/11 was a hoax orchestrated by the U.S. government. The video was narrated by Louis Farrakhan in support of Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar.
It began with Farrakhan praising the 37-year old Somali born refugee saying, “3,133 Scientists Back Ilhan Omar on 9/11 Deep skepticism exists about the gov’t version of 9/11. Many experts, architects & engineers, say the World Trade Center Towers were destroyed in a controlled demolition.”
Listen to @LouisFarrakhan #IStandWithIlhan,” the tweet reads with the YouTube video link attached.
The scurrilous video created by the bigoted 85-year old black nationalist and leader of the Nation of Islam, falsely claiming that the tragic event of 9/11 wasn’t a terrorist attack by Islamic extremists, but a well orchestrated and elaborate plot mastermind by the Bush administration, “to get the country into war at the expense of young patriotic men and women.” The video actually alleges that the government lied to the people about the USS Maine, World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War.
Farrakhan also contends that burning jet fuel could not possibly melt the steel within the Twin Towers.
The hash-tag #IStandWithIlhan is an apparent reverence to Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, in that both share a hatred for the Jewish State.
In October of 2018, Farrakhan continued his attack on the Jewish people tweeting out, “I’m not an anti-Semite. I’m anti-Termite.

He then doubled down stating, “To the members of the Jewish community that don’t like me, thank you very much for putting my name all over the planet … I’m not mad at you, ’cause you’re so stupid,” he said during the event. “So when they talk about Farrakhan, call me a hater, you know they do, call me an anti-Semite, stop it! I’m anti-termite! I don’t know nothing about hating somebody because of their religious preference.”
Then there’s Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib who also came to the defense of her fellow freshman on Thursday after the controversy surrounding Omar’s 9/11 comments.
“They do this all the time to us, especially women of color. They do that. They take our words out of context because they’re afraid because we speak truth. We speak truth to power,” Tlaib told NBC News.
Adding, “My sister Ilhan Omar, what she was talking about was uplifting people by supporting their civil liberties and civil rights. She has always, always condemned any kind of strategy, especially of a person that is directly impacted by being a refugee herself. She sees what terrorism can do. She sees what violence can do to a whole country, to a whole people.”
Tlaib, like her Muslim counterpart, is also an extremist having invited a pro-Hezbollah “anti-Israel activist” to her swearing-in ceremony, she (like Omar) also has ties to other anti-Israel groups
Both Omar and Tlaib are big supporters of CAIR, which has indirect ties to Islamic terror groups, and which the Department of Justice listed as a un-indicted co-conspirator in funding millions of dollars to the terrorist organizations around the world.
However perhaps the most bizarre incident in support of Omar came from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (a Brooklyn born Jew), who abruptly cut off the mic on Morton Klein, the president of the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), as he attempted to express his consternation for the Democratic leadership’s defense of Omar last month.
Klein began his presentation to the committee, “As a child of Holocaust survivors, I was horrified to see Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Minority Leader Steny Hoyer defend Representative Omar after her vicious anti-Semitic remarks” before Chairman Nadler suddenly interrupted him and told him that his time had expired and then quickly cut off his mic.
