"the Jewish question"

Michael Ahrens - March 5, 2018

Last month, the mainstream media obsessed (see list below) over an anti-Semitic candidate who ran unopposed in a Republican primary for a seat he has 0% chance of winning.

Meanwhile, Democratic Rep. Danny Davis has actually been in Congress for over 20 years and barely anyone is covering the anti-Semitic things he’s been saying. In an interview last month, the Democratic Congressman called leading anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan an “outstanding human being.” (Farrakhan believes Jews are “satanic,” calls Hitler a “very great man,” and thinks “white people deserve to die.”) 

Over the weekend, Davis said he isn’t bothered by Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism: “The world is so much bigger than Farrakhan and the Jewish question and his position on that and so forth.”

This follows damning new evidence that DNC Deputy Chair Keith Ellison has maintained a decades-long relationship with Farrakhan.

Imagine if a Republican congressman called David Duke an “outstanding human being” and said “the world is so much bigger than Duke’s views on race.” Not only would it be widely covered, but reporters would be hounding every elected Republican official for a reaction.

Check out how much coverage the “Republican” perennial candidate received last month vs. how much the actual Democratic Congressman has gotten:
