Sunday, Reverend Louis Farrakhan gave a speech in front of thousands of people, including women’s march co-founder Tamika Mallory.

Courtesy of CNN’s Jake Tapper, here are some of the Reverend’s greatest hits from that day……

“Shortly after 1:10:50 in the video Farrakhan proclaims that “the powerful Jews are my enemy.”

At 2:57:00 he begins approvingly quoting some of the anti-Semitic comments made by Rev. Billy Graham and President Richard Nixon in the Oval Office.

At 2:59:00 Farrakhan approvingly cites Nixon and Graham attacking Jews’ “grip on the media” and Hollywood and “how the Jews were responsible for all of this filth and degenerate behavior that Hollywood is putting out turning men into women and women into men.”

At 3:15, Farrakhan calls Jews ‘the mother and father of apartheid, the Jews.”

Assailing Keith Ellison, at 3:21 Farrakhan says, “let me tell you something, when you want something in this world, the Jew holds the door.”

At 3;49: “White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan …has pulled the cover off the eyes of that Satanic Jew and I’m here to say your time is up, your world is through.”

Go ahead and read through the above quotes. I’ll wait.

Full disclosure: I’m a Jewish man and Vice President of the American Jewish Congress. When I read or hear for myself what Farrakhan says, I am horrified.

Not because I take him seriously. He’s clearly a deranged lunatic and a massive anti-Semite.

What scares me is that there are people who openly talk to him and associate with him in a way that as Tapper noted, is simply not called out the way it would be for somebody like David Duke.

Mallory was at this speech and is heavily involved with the women’s march. I wonder what Jewish women would think if they heard that.

Keith Ellison — one of the highest-ranking Democrats in the House — met with Farrakhan and paled around with him until he ran for DNC Chair and had to distance himself for political reasons.

Even President Obama met with Farrakhan when he was a sitting Senator.

It’s nauseating.

Since the video footage and Tapper’s tweetstorm about it, several on the left have accused the CNN anchor of “virtue signaling” to the right and focusing on Farrakhan while ignoring President Trump.

First of all, as Tapper himself said, bigotry is bigotry. It’s either ok or it isn’t.

Second, if you are really going to equate President Trump to Farrakhan, then I don’t know what to tell you.

Say what you want about some of the more controversial things the President has said, but they don’t come anywhere remotely close to what Farrakhan has said over the years, let alone on Sunday.

For anybody who has not figured this out already, it is time to call Louis Farrakhan out for what he is.

He is every bit as toxic, disgusting, and racist as David Duke, Richard Spencer, or anybody else in the white identity movement.

Anybody who thinks otherwise either does not want to see the truth or is part of the problem.

It is well past due that anybody who openly associates with this man be called out for it and shamed accordingly.

Enough is enough.
