Let’s see if I understand this correctly: Democrats who claim to champion intolerance of racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, gender inequality, etc., are perfectly okay with a racist Jew-hater.
Indeed, not just passively okay with the man who has for decades referred to Judaism as “The Synagogue of Satan” and a “gutter religion” but a coalition of Democrat student clubs including the Alabama A&M Democrats and the Alabama A&M Poetry Club, at Alabama A&M, have invited Louis Farrakhan to speak on their campus.
Poetry club president Kris Taylor told WHNT the Farrakhan appearance, which comes on the heels of anti-Jewish comments by the Nation of Islam leader, is intended to “uplift” and bring “positive energy.”
“There’s going to be positive energy coming from this,” Taylor told WHNT. “I don’t believe he’s going to come here and bash the Jews…There should be no division when you’re trying to uplift and bring positive energy to something.”
Which makes Farrakhan sound like just another brand of aromatherapy.
Here’s just a small sample of Farrakhan’s positive energy:
“Did you know that the Koran says that Jews are the most violent of people. I didn’t write it, but I’m living to see it.”

“I think we have made a grave mistake; we have been deceived into thinking that the Jews have been our allies in our recent civil rights struggle… Yes, he poses as your friend. He’s with you as an agent, he’s with you as a manager, he’s with you as an investor, he’s with you as a guide in economic development, but he has never asked you to do what he has done. He networks with other rich, influential Jews and he buys, he invests, he’s in trade and commerce.”
—Interview with Washington, DC, radio station WPFW-FM, 4/1/10
“Some of you think that I’m just somebody who’s got something out for the Jewish people. You’re stupid. Do you think I would waste my time if I did not think it was important for you to know Satan? My job is to pull the cover off of Satan so that he will never deceive you and the people of the world again.”

Imagine how these Democrats would react if Ann Coulter were invited to their campus by Republican students. Navy Seals would have to provide security.
I can guarantee that these same students who seek positive energy from Farrakhan are calling for George Zimmerman’s head on a platter.
For these Democrats, tolerance of genuine intolerance is perfectly tolerable.
Oh, almost forgot: Farrakhan also puts out a lot of positive energy regarding homosexuals:
“The Jewish people have said that Hollywood is theirs. Can any of you deny that they are the masters of Hollywood, where sex, lesbianism, homosexuality and violence are promoted?”
