On Friday, Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN) admitted to meeting with radical Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan in the past and then appeared to defend himself by attacking Jews.
Fox 59 anchor Angela Ganote asked Carson to address the scandal and the Republican Jewish Coalition’s call for him and six other Democrats to resign for meeting with Farrakhan, who has openly praised Hitler in the past.
Carson responded by attacking the Republican Jewish Coalition, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and Israel’s government.
“That organization doesn’t have any credibility with me. I know they have a political agenda,” Carson replied. “The Congressional Black Caucus is asking that organization to condemn Benjamin Netanyahu and the government for discriminating against Africans who are migrating, who are fleeing dictatorships, who are fleeing oppression. There’s a great deal of bigotry and racism happening right now that they failed to condemn.”
