- Waters attended a Nation of Islam Convention where Louis Farrakhan defended Palestinian suicide bombers
- The Nation of Islam believes white people are inherently inferior to black people
- Farrakhan is an anti-Semite who called Jews “Satanic” and said Hitler was “a very great man”
- Waters’ convention appearance is just the latest tie to emerge between Democrats and the Nation of Islam.
Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters attended a Nation of Islam convention where the hate group’s leader, Louis Farrakhan, defended Palestinian suicide bombers.
The convention, which took place in California in 2002, is just the latest tie to emerge between Democrats and the Nation of Islam, a black nationalist group known for being viciously anti-Semitic.
“We have Maxine Waters here,” Farrakhan told the convention audience, gesturing to the seats behind him, “our great congresswoman from this area.” The audience cheered Waters’ name.
