The now-deceased suspect involved in the U.S. Capitol attack Friday has been identified as a devout Nation of Islam follower who had clung closely to the words of hatemonger Louis Farrakhan, a man whom some might say is a black supremacist.
“The deceased suspect, Noah Green, included photos and videos of Nation of Islam rallies on his Facebook page and identified himself on the page as a ‘Follower of Farrakhan.’ Green praised Farrakhan, an outspoken anti-Semite, as ‘Jesus’ and former NOI leader Elijah Muhammad as ‘the exalted Christ,'” according to Fox News.
The most recent post on Green’s Facebook page was reportedly a YouTube video of a 2009 speech made by Farrakhan, a man who’s previously described deceased genocidal Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler as a “very great man.”
“Farrakhan is the leader and most prominent figure of the Nation of Islam, a militant black supremacist and nationalist group that formed in the 1930s,” Fox News reported in another story about the hatemonger last month.

His Facebook page contained numerous links to Louis Farrakhan’s work and praise for him.
Curiously, his account appears to have been inactive since September 2020 when he last changed his profile image. There may be more posts, but they’re likely hidden to friends and family. pic.twitter.com/wfbEsxt1Gg

The ideological beliefs of Green, whose actions led to the death of Capitol police officer Williams F. Evans, an 18-year veteran of the force, are facing intense scrutiny now because they can be traced back to the Democrat Party.
An extraordinary number of sitting congressional Democrats have in times past hobnobbed with Farrakhan, praised Farrakhan and even posed for photos with Farrakhan.
In 2011, current House Majority Whip James Clyburn, an extremely high-level Democrat, attended an event with and praised Farrakhan, according to the activist’s own official newspaper, The Final Call.
“The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s clarion call for Black empowerment and self-determination rang out across America during a nationally broadcast town hall meeting at the August Wilson Center for African American Culture here March 11. … Minister Farrakhan was joined by Rep. James Clyburn,” the paper reported on March 15th, 2011.
The paper also touted Clyburn’s praise for the hatemonger.
”I want to thank Min. Farrakhan for offering up a number of precepts that we ought to adhere to,’ said Rep. Clyburn, after the Minister Farrakhan made remarks about the critical need for Blacks to unite, pool their resources and build for a future,” the paper reported.
As a reminder, Farrakhan is essentially seen as a black supremacist.
Louis Farrakhan — long noted for his hatred of Jews — is a black supremacist who considers all non-black races inferior. He has referred to Jews as “the synagogue of Satan” and “termites.” https://t.co/JrHVXb2eWx

The paper added that, in Clyburn’s own reported words, he was “not bothered in the least bit” by the criticism he’d faced at the time for hobnobbing with a hatemonger.
When this stunning report was discovered in 2018, Clyburn reportedly refused to condemn Farrakhan.
“I have fought all my life to advance the cause of social justice and equality, and I have always opposed bigotry in all its forms,” was all he said when questioned by The Daily Caller at the time on whether he stood by his past actions.
Clyburn isn’t alone.
Another powerful Democrat, House Financial Services Committee chair Maxine Waters, not only attended a Nation of Islam conference in 2002 but even received a personal shout-out from Farrakhan.
“We have Maxine Waters here, our great congresswoman from this area,” he said around the 30:08 mark in the video below:
Later during that same speech, he “defended Palestinian suicide bombers,” according to Fox News.
As if that’s not bad enough, there’s also video footage of Waters hugging Farrakhan, though it’s not entirely clear when that footage was recorded.

Farrakhan has praised Hitler as being a “very great man,” has called Judaism a “gutter religion,” and compared Jews to “termites”

Meanwhile, in 2013 current Georgia Sen. Raphael Warnock, a freshman Democrat, reportedly said the Nation of Islam’s “voice has been important for the development of Black theology.”
Again, the Nation of Islam is essentially a black supremacist organization.
What remains unclear is whether the media, which loves to use the most tenuous links between Republicans and white supremacists — such as white supremacists merely endorsing Republicans without their approval — to attack the GOP, will apply the same standards to the Democrats.
The chances admittedly seem low …
The man responsible for the deadly Good Friday Capitol Hill attack was a devout follower of Louis Farrakhan & the black nationalist Nation of Islam group. Farrakhan has close ties to Democrat leaders. Will the media make sure they’re made to answer for those links?
Of course not
