A Disturbing Disconnect

Biden honors a cop killed by a black supremacist, and then meets with black supremacists.

Tuesday morning, President Joe Biden spoke at the memorial service for Capitol Hill Police Officer William Evans. As you’ll recall, Evans was murdered by a supporter of Louis Farrakhan, a black supremacist and the rabidly anti-Semitic leader of the Nation of Islam.

But later in the afternoon, Biden met with several members of the Congressional Black Caucus at the White House, a meeting that seemed disturbingly disconnected from reality.

How are these two events linked? Unfortunately, many members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) have close ties to Louis Farrakhan. For example:

  • House Majority Whip James Clyburn invited Farrakhan to a private Washington, DC, event in 2000 when he served as chairman of the CBC. In 2011, Clyburn appeared with Farrakhan at an event in Pittsburgh, saying he wasn’t “bothered in the least” by criticism of his association with “America’s leading anti-Semite.”

  • Georgia Senator Raphael Warnock has praised Farrakhan as an “important voice in the development of black theology.” Would that theology include Farrakhan’s teaching that white people are devils and that Jews are “satanic”?

  • Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee hailed the Nation of Islam for its “leadership without embarrassment, shyness or apology.”

  • And, of course, there was the secret CBC meeting with Farrakhan in 2005 that also included then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama.

Now, let’s take the same set of facts and just swap out some names:

“Tuesday morning, Donald Trump attended the funeral of a black police officer who was killed by a supporter of David Duke. Later in the day, he attended a meeting of Duke supporters.”

Can you imagine the media’s outrage? If such a horrific scenario occurred, the outrage would be more than justified. But on Tuesday such a horrific scenario actually did occur, and our biased media didn’t say a word.
