Beloved by leaders of the Women’s March, and tolerated by key Democrats.
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan visited Iran over the weekend where he did what he does best: spit on America and somehow connect Jews to everything.
During his speech at Tehran University, Farrakhan led chants of “Death to America” with the Iranians.
Farrakhan and others went to tour Iran to help celebrate “the anniversary of the seizure of the US Embassy in Tehran during the 1979 revolution.” The visit also happened “just days before the Trump administration reimposes sanctions on Iran’s key oil sector.”

Farrakhan spewed his usual lies like America is the “Great Satan” and also encouraged the Iranians to keep resisting the “American plots” to cause harm to Iran. From The Jerusalem Post:
“The Christians say that Satan is a liar, and every day they keep a count of Trump’s lies,” Farrakhan said at a meeting with Mohsen Rezaee, a conservative politician who is secretary of Iran’s Expediency Discernment Council, a body that advises Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
“Only Satan was created by a lie,” Farrakhan said.
In his speech in Tehran, Farrakhan said he was enjoying his visit to Iran and that “I am here to show my friendship” with the Iranian people. He also warned Iranians against “American plots” against the Muslim world.
“The American government is plotting against you every day,” Farrakhan said, saying he knew of American plans to attack and occupy seven Muslim nations. “Because it is impossible to change the way of thinking of Islamic Iran, they never sleep and are always working to create an internal enemy in Iran.”
Farrakhan turned his attention to Saudi Arabia, Iran’s biggest enemy in the Middle East, over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Of course he mentions Trump and his Jewish son-in-law Jared Kushner. Rezaee somehow connects Israel to the problem:
“Trump cannot clear his account with Muhammad bin Salman because of the killing of Khashoggi,” he said, “because of the large amount invested in the Saudis and the interest that Trump’s son-in-law and his family have in the country.”
“Israel has taken very clever steps in Abu Dhabi, and wants to gain control over Muhammad bin Salman,” Rezaee added, “but the Khashoggi affair has foiled their plans.”
“When I met Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan al-Saud at the Saudi Embassy, I asked him why there are American troops in the holy places [Mecca and Medina],” Farrakhan added. “He assured me that we have a treaty stating that any time we want, we can remove the Americans. I told him that treaties have not stopped the Americans in the past. They also had treaties with the Native Americans, which were never honored.
It’s always the Jews and Israel to these people.
Farrakhan is loved and adored by Women’s March leaders Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour. Ben & Jerry’s recently teamed up with the organization to promote their resistance ice cream. Hmmm..I wonder if this will change their minds?
In a visit to Iran @LouisFarrakhan chanted ‘Death to America!’ and claimed that ‘America has never been a democracy’. In this video Farrakhan says “death to Israel”.

A new low for arch Jew-hater Farrakhan. Who has heard of an American going to a foreign country and chanting “Death to America?” Where is @BillClinton who appeared with him recently, and @BarackObama, photographed with him, and @corybooker to condemn him? https://t.co/A6yhSmfs5T

Remember, Farrakhan was secretly embraced by Obama in 2005, but the photo was concealed until recently.
And Keith Ellison, current DNC Vice-Chair, used to work for the Nation of Islam, only denounced Farrakhan when running for Congress, and kept in touch with him in recently years.
