Share the article: Madigan, Pritzker Silent As Democrat Danny Davis Defends Louis Farrakhan, Talks About The “Jewish Question”

Davis says Farrakhan is an “outstanding human being” while brushing aside his anti-Semitism

Last month, Democratic U.S. Rep. Danny Davis of Illinois’ 7th Congressional District called Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan an “outstanding human being.” Farrakhan has a sad history of racially insensitive comments, from blaming Jews for the September 11th terrorist attacks to calling Adolf Hitler a “very great man” and much worse.

When asked about his close relationship with Farrakhan, Davis laughed, saying“The world is so much bigger than Farrakhan and the Jewish question and his position on that and so forth. For those heavy into it, that’s their thing, but it ain’t my thing.”

What, exactly, did Danny Davis mean by “the Jewish question”?

Chicago Alderman and progressive Democrat activist Ameya Pawar swiftly condemned Farrakhan, but Democratic Party of Illinois Chairman Mike Madigan and his hand-picked candidate for governor, J.B. Pritzker, have been silent.

When will Madigan and Pritzker condemn Farrakhan’s hatred and bigotry?
