Controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan made anti-Semitic statements in a speech, claiming “The FBI has been the worst enemy of Black advancement. The Jews have control over those agencies of government.”

The specific quote and related video was posted by Farrakhan on twitter.
The statement raises deep concerns regarding Farrakhan’s relationship with many major Democratic figures, from Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee Keith Ellison, all the way to former president Barrack Obama, who only recently was seen posing with Farrakhan in a suppressed photo from 2005.
The Daily Caller specifically profiled Farrakhan’s relationship with Keith Ellison, who himself is a former member of the Nation of Islam:
Ellison is a former Nation of Islam member who swore when he ran for Congress in 2006 that he had left Farrakhan behind in his past. Despite those promises, Ellison attended multiple meetings with Farrakhan while in Congress, as revealed by The Daily Caller.
The report continued to expose more senior Democrat leaders with connections to Farrakhan:
California Reps. Maxine Waters and Barbara Lee, Illinois Rep. Danny Davis, Indiana Rep. Andre Carson, New York Rep. Gregory Meeks and Texas Rep. Al Green have all attended meetings with Farrakhan while in Congress, according to photos, videos and witness accounts of the meetings reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

As of March 7th, Farrakhan’s pinned twitter post asks, “What have I done to make Jewish people hate me?”.
