DNC chair candidate avoids NY Times for fear of being asked about his ties to Louis Farrakhan

Poor Democrats. They just cannot find a leader that isn’t a trainwreck.

Keith Ellison is the leading candidate to take the reins from Donna Brazile, who was recently busted giving debate questions in advance to Hillary Clinton during her primary against Bernie Sanders.

Brazile took the position from Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democrat ousted for rigging the primaries for Clinton.

Ellison cancelled an interview with the New York Times because he found out the paper was going to ask him about his ties to Louis Farrakhan.

The first Muslim elected to Congress, Ellison wrote articles in defense of Farrakhan when he was a student at the University of Minnesota Law School and, by 1998, described himself as a member of the Nation of Islam and went by the name Keith Ellison-Muhammad, according to The Weekly Standard.

Farrakhan is a known racist and anti-Semite who has called for America to be wiped from the face of the Earth, said “White people are potential humans – they haven’t evolved yet,” called Hezbollah “freedom fighters,” blamed Jews for 9/11 and said “Hitler was a very great man.”

“Aides to Mr. Ellison were going to make him available for a telephone interview, but then declined when informed that he would be asked about his past comments on Mr. Farrakhan,” The Times wrote. “They emailed a list of his links to the Jewish community and a statement that said, ‘Democrats need an organizer who will energize the grassroots across this country to build the party from the bottom up.’”
