Former Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, responding to the shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue that claimed 11 lives, drew attention to the a number of high-profile Democrats who have ties to noted anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.
Appearing on “Fox & Friends,” Dershowitz called out Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton on Sunday, along with embattled Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., who finds himself beset with allegations of domestic abuse.
“There can’t be any tolerance, we have to have zero tolerance, President Obama meets with Farrakhan? Shame on him,” Dershowitz said. “President Clinton sits on the same platform with Farrakhan. Shame on him.”
“Keith Ellison joins with Farrakhan,” he continued. “Farrakhan is one of the greatest purveyors of anti-Semitic hate. Just because he’s black doesn’t give him a pass on anti-Semitism and any liberal who has any positive association with Farrakhan is part of the problem not part of the solution.”
Less than two weeks before a gunman opened fire on the synagogue, Farrakhan took to Twitter to compare Jews to termites — which apparently passed Twitter CEO Jack Dempsey’s standards, considering it’s still up.

Of which, Dershowitz offered his take, saying Twitter “has policies that they try to apply objectively.”
“The issue is not taking it down,” he said. “The issue is the fact there are hundreds of thousands, maybe millions of Americans who support Farrakhan, who support David Duke, who support anti-Semites and they will try to glorify this guy.”
Dershowitz’s mention of Clinton was in reference to Aretha Franklin’s funeral, where the former president sat alongside Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

Some media outlets just happened to crop Farrakhan out by tightening the shot to include just Clinton and the other two race baiters.
And there’s the now infamous 2005 photo of Obama with the Nation of Islam leader that recently surfaces after being suppressed during his presidential runs.
Recall that this 2005 photo of Obama and Louis Farrakhan, who has openly called Jews “termites” and called for their destruction, was deliberately suppressed by media and congressional Democrats for 13 years, in case you’re wondering who they actually care about protecting. pic.twitter.com/rG2ZP7Tsm6

But then, these are not the only Democrats to embrace the Jew-hating Farrakhan.
