Anti-semite favorite of the political left Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan traveled to Iran on the anniversary of the 1979 hostage crisis and the Trump administration’s levying of new sanctions on Iran to lead chants of “Death to America.” He also used the opportunity to tell his Iranian audience that black Americans released during the hostage crisis should be regarded as revolutionaries, and that “America has never been a democracy.” With friends like Farrakhan, who needs enemies? He’s one more reminder of why the left’s motley coalition is such an odd thing.
Here’s more from Fox News…
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite who recently compared Jewish people to termites, led a “Death to America” chant Sunday during a solidarity trip to Iran.
Farrakhan’s trip came ahead of the Trump administration’s re-implementation of U.S. sanctions against the Islamic Republic on Monday.

Speaking to law school students at the University of Tehran, the 85-year-old Farrakhan said “America has never been a democracy,” and also led a “Death to Israel” chant at the end of his talk, according to Iranian news agencies.
“Today, I warn the American government that sanctioning Iran is a big mistake,” he said at a meeting with the Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council, Mohsen Rezaei. Farrakhan noted his belief America is conspiring against Iran.
