Sometimes media bias has nothing to do with what reporters say, but what they don’t say.


Recently, we’ve learned additional members of the Democratic Party have a relationship with the racist and anti-Semitic Louis Farrakhan, whose hatred has been a well-known fact for well over a decade. But when Farrakhan released new hatred this past weekend the MSM did not question his relationship with the party.

Listen, Jewish people don’t have no hands that are free of the blood of us. They owned slave ships, they bought and sold us. They raped and robbed us. Louis Farrakahn  Saviours Day February 2005

I’m not sure what the bigot was talking about, during the time period Farrakhan said we were raping black people, my Jewish ancestors were in eastern Europe getting beaten up and raped by Cossacks other local Jew-haters.

“These false Jews promote the filth of Hollywood that is seeding the American people and the people of the world and bringing you down in moral strength. … It’s the wicked Jews, the false Jews, that are promoting lesbianism, homosexuality. It’s the wicked Jews, false Jews, that make it a crime for you to preach the word of God, then they call you homophobic!”— Louis Farrakhan, Saviours’ Day speech, Feb. 26, 2006

There is a weapon that can be put in a room where there are black and white people, and it will kill only the black and spare the white, because it is a genotype weapon that is designed for your genes, for your race, for your kind,” Louis Farrakhan on Ebola, 2014

This past Sunday Farrakhan crawled out from under the rock he shares with other slugs and made his annual Saviour’s Day speech. As his tradition, he used the speech as an opportunity to spew hatred against Jews and Caucasians and he didn’t disappoint— with comments such as:

“The government is my enemy, the powerful Jews are my enemy, and scared-to-death Negroes are my enemy, and weak Muslims and hypocrites are my enemy!”

(…)“White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan, by God’s grace, has pulled the cover off of that Satanic Jew and I’m here to say your time is up, your world is through.”

Farrakhan also discussed Keith Ellison (D-MN), the deputy chairman of the Democratic Party, confirming his work with the anti-Semite, something that was known but downplayed by the Congressman.

“He wanted to help his community. He wanted to be a congressman, so when the Jews found out that he was in the Nation [they demanded he denounces Farrakhan]..,Keith [Ellison] was in the Nation in 1995. He was selling the Final Call newspaper, a beautiful brother,”

Interestingly when Ellison’s work with Farrakhan and other anti-Semites was exposed when he was running for chairman of the Democratic party, the exposers were warned by the Anti-Defamation League not to denounce him.

Farrakhan’s hatred isn’t the only issue.  Whenever a bigoted nutjob announces they support President Trump, Democrats, and the mainstream media start screaming “why won’t the president denounce…..?” David Duke for example, or the white supremacists, Roy Moore, etc. etc.

When Democrats show a much closer relationship with haters, heard from the Dems and/or the MSM is the sound of crickets. Former president Obama associated with Al Sharpton who led two anti-Semitic pogroms in NYC, and every other anti-Semite who crawled out from under a rock and there was silence.

Over the past month, we’ve learned senior Congressional Democrats including Maxine Waters (D-CA) and Keith Ellison (D-MN and the deputy chair of the party) and 19 other members of the Congressional Black Caucus met with Louis Farrakhan, with the exception of Jake Tapper at CNN, the MSM may have reported the meetings, however unlike when a nutjob supports Trump there is no call for a denunciation. Farrakhan spewed hatred on Sunday, but there is no call for the Democrats to rebuke him.


Farrakhan’s hateful words Sunday were reported by the media but his relationship with Democrats was not treated the same way as when a bigot announces support of President Trump. Where are the headlines saying “denounce Farrakhan!”, or “where are the Democrats?”, or “why is Ellison silent” or even “Do all the Democrats in Congress support the anti-Semitic Farrakhan?” 

I do not believe all Democrats are anti-Semites, but sadly many in the party are leaning that way. Perhaps that’s why the party is silent (well that and the fact that Keith Ellison is their vice-chair)

As for the MSM, they usually ignore Antisemitism (see Al Sharpton and Barack Obama) but  Farrakhan spews hatred against all white people why is the media silent?  Is it because they only care about some bigotry? Is it because Farrakahn has a relationship with Democrats, and the bigots who support the president are supporting a Republican? Perhaps it’s because the media hates Trump more than the average Republican?

When Todd Aiken blew his Missouri Senate bid with the extremely stupid comment, “If it’s legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut the whole thing down,” the first question out of most MSM reporters mouths when confronting a Republican was, “do you agree with Todd Aiken?” Yet four days after Louis Farrakhan unleashed his latest hatred upon the world, not one Democrat has been asked if they agree with him.

Sometimes media bias has nothing to do with what reporters say, but what they don’t say.
