Democrats are often busted for misleading the American public.
This particular case of untruth involves DNC Deputy Chair Keith Ellison claiming he rejected Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, yet he ate dinner with him in 2013!
From Daily Wire:
Rep. Keith Ellison, the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, who protested over a decade ago that he rejected and condemned “the anti-Semitic statements and actions of the Nation of Islam [and] Louis Farrakhan,” somehow had no problem attending a private dinner in 2013 with Iranian president Hassan Rouhani at which Farrakhan was in attendance.
As Haaretz reports, in 2016, when Ellison ran for the leadership of the Democratic National Committee, he reiterated his position on Farrakhan, stating that he condemned Farrakhan’s “hatred and division, including, anti-Semitism, homophobia and a chauvinistic model of manhood. I disavowed them long ago, condemned their views, and apologized.”

Three Democratic congressmen attended a private dinner hosted by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in 2013, a new report reveals.
Reps. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, Andre Carson of Indiana and Gregory Meeks of New York attended the private dinner, along with Louis Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite who leads the black supremacist group Nation of Islam.
Iran is the number one state sponsor of terrorism, according to the United States government, which has listed the Islamic Republic as a state sponsor of terror since 1984. Rouhani was in New York for a United Nations meeting and held the dinner party just hours after speaking to the UN General Assembly.
Final Call, a Nation of Islam publication, noted the three Democrats’ attendance at the time and included photos of Ellison and Meeks at the dinner party. But aside from the Final Call article, the three Democrats’ presence at the dinner remained secret until a Wall Street Journal column revealed it on Friday. None of the three congressmen’s offices responded to The Daily Caller’s request for comment for this article.
Have anything to say for yourself, Keith?
