The Nation of Islam is lashing out at three black members of Congress who have denounced its leader, Louis Farrakhan, for making anti-Semitic and anti-white remarks in a recent speech.
Meeks, Davis and Lee responded that they condemn anti-Semitism and denounced Farrakhan’s remarks.
The new open letter by the Nation of Islam said: “We are writing this open letter to express our deep disappointment with your published denouncement of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s Saviors’ Day 2018 Message at the behest of the Republican Jewish Coalition, the anti-Defamation League and others who represent white supremacy and the continuing effort to destroy our community.”
Earl Ofari Hutchinson, an author and political analyst, said that before Farrakhan’s recent Chicago speech grabbed national headlines, the Nation of Islam leader’s clout had been dimming.
