FNC Highlights Farrakhan Ties to House Democrats, Resignation Calls

March 8th, 2018 1:32 PM

On Thursday morning, uniquely among the day's morning shows, FNC's Fox and Friends gave attention to the Republican Jewish Coalition calling for the resignations of seven congressional Democrats who have ties with National of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, in light of a recent speech in which he attacked "Satanic" Jews and whites.

As Brian Kilmeade spoke with New York Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin, the FNC host brought up the RJC's complaints, and played clips of Farrakhan from two separate speeches:

LOUIS FARRAKHAN CLIP #1 (dated March 2014): The Satanic Jews that control everything and mostly everybody -- if they are your enemy, then you must -- must be somebody!

FARRAKHAN CLIP #2: (dated February 2018): White folks are going down, and Satan is going down, and Farrakhan, by God's grace, has pulled the cover off that Satanic Jew!

Kilmeade listed the names of seven House Democrats who "have ties to Farrakhan," and asked Rep. Zeldin for his reaction.

The New York Republican pointed out the double standard that, if he associated with someone like the racist, anti-Semitic National of Islam leader, he would be "thrown out" of Congress. He also recalled Farrakhan's history of blaming Jews for the 9/11 attacks.
