Maxine Waters’ past is coming back to haunt her. According to a report, Waters attended a convention where Louis Farrakhan defended suicide bombers. Barack Hussein Obama also attended the convention.
From Daily Caller:
Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters attended a Nation of Islam convention where the hate group’s leader, Louis Farrakhan, defended Palestinian suicide bombers.
The convention, which took place in California in 2002, is just the latest tie to emerge between Democrats and the Nation of Islam, a black nationalist group known for being viciously anti-Semitic.
“We have Maxine Waters here,” Farrakhan told the convention audience, gesturing to the seats behind him, “our great congresswoman from this area.” The audience cheered Waters’ name.
Later in his speech, Farrakhan excused Palestinian suicide bombers and defended Iran for arming Palestinian terrorists.
Farrakhan criticized the United States for providing Israel with planes and other weapons, which he indicated was to blame for Palestinian suicide bombers.
The Palestinians have nothing to defend themselves with, so they’re so exhausted and exasperated, think about that, strapping bombs to themselves, making themselves a weapon,” Farrakhan said.
“And then for the world to get upset because Iran or somebody is trying to send them some weapons. Wait a minute. If you were Jewish and you saw unarmed Jews being persecuted, wouldn’t you come to your brothers’ aid? Do you expect Muslims to see their brothers suffering like that and not come to their aid?”
Farrakhan is a notorious anti-Semite who has called Jews “Satanic” and said that white people “deserve to die.” The Nation of Islam holds that white people are inherently inferior to black people and its leaders have criticized inter-racial marriage as unholy and wrong.
Waters’ office did not return repeated requests for comment. An interview request submitted to the Nation of Islam was not returned.
Waters’ appearance at the Nation of Islam convention is just the latest tie to emerge between the hate group and Democratic members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC).
The CBC in 2005 held a meeting with Farrakhan, where then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama took a smiling photo with the hate group leader.
Both the photo and the meeting remained secret until last month. The man who took the photo, a journalist for a Nation of Islam publication, said CBC members asked him to suppress it in order to protect Obama’s political future.
