Resurfaced video shows Maxine Waters at event with Louis Farrakhan in New Orleans

Following public pressure to resign after she was exposed for consorting with acknowledged anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan at a 2002 Nation of Islam convention, demands for Rep. Maxine Waters’ early retirement promise to reach unprecedented levels when this video makes the rounds.

A video has resurfaced depicting the California Democrat offering the hate group leader a warm embrace at a New Orleans church in 2006.

Watch the video here:

Minister Farrakhan Meets With Members Of The Congressional Black Caucus

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan meets with members of the Congressional Black Caucus privately after a townhall event discussing the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. This meeting was at St. Augustine Church in New Orleans, LA.

United by hate

Rep. Waters’ apparent closeness with Farrakhan is now well documented. She was treated as a guest of honor by Farrakhan at the Nation of Islam event in 2002. “We have Maxine Waters here,” Farrakhan proudly told those in attendance, “our great congresswoman from this area.”

Farrakhan completed his annual Saviors’ Day speech at this event, and his rhetoric that particular year was as disgusting and hateful as any other. The black separatist leader glorified Palestinian suicide bombers while asserting that Americans essentially reaped what they sowed on September 11, 2001.

Waters’ presence at this speech lends legitimacy to this disgusting hate-mongering.

However, if there are any doubts about Waters’ intimate ties to Farrakhan, these were dismissed after freelance columnist Jeryl Bier exposed footage of several prominent congressional Democrats embracing the black supremacist.

Waters was joined by former Rep. William Jefferson (D-La.), former Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) and Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) exchanging handshakes, hugs and social pleasantries with Farrakhan.

Public backlash

Democrats are under increasing pressure from the public to distance themselves from Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam. After The Daily Caller produced a report outlining the various connections between Democrats and the hate group, the Republican Jewish Coalition called on these lawmakers to resign. Coalition executive director Matt Brooks explained his organization’s demands and enumerated Farrakhan’s offenses in a public statement:

Seven long-serving Democrats have close ties with Louis Farrakhan. Each of them should resign.

They include former Nation of Islam employee, Congressman Keith Ellison, who is Deputy Chair of the DNC. Ellison has tried to excuse his 2013 meeting with Farrakhan, while ignoring his more recent meeting with the NOI leader in Farrakhan’s hotel room, in 2015. At least six other Democrats are known to have embraced Farrakhan. These members of Congress – Maxine Waters, Barbara Lee, Danny Davis, Andre Carson, Gregory Meeks, and Al Green – have all, while in office, sat down with Farrakhan for personal meetings.

There can be no question about how abhorrent it is for these Democrats to be connected to Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan is first and foremost a preacher of hate. He preaches about Jewish “control” over the government and media and has claimed to have “pulled a cover off of that Satanic Jew,” saying “your time is up, your world is through.” And those were just the comments from last week.

In addition to grassroots activism, the evidence of ties between the Congressional Black Caucus and the Nation of Islam has prompted a legislative response.

Republican Congressman Todd Rokita of Indiana introduced a resolution this month condemning Farrakhan for “promoting ideas that create animosity and anger” toward Jewish Americans and the Jewish religion, and condemning “all manifestations of expressions of racism, anti-Semitism, and ethnic or religious intolerance.”

In a show of stunning hypocrisy, throughout the Trump presidency, Rep. Waters has unrelentingly condemned the commander-in-chief as a racist and a bigot.

Given her own clouded past and close association to a man that has celebrated the destruction of an entire ethnosectarian group, “Auntie Maxine” should evaluate her own unconcealed racial animus before casting stones at the president.

Rep. Waters is an entrenched incumbent in her district, and there’s no way she’ll be going anywhere. Any national hopes she may have, like becoming president, will be destroyed with a history of video evidence like this.
