Louis Farrakhan is the leader of the Nation of Islam, an anti-Semite, a bigot, and an icon to many on the left. His close relationships with many Democratic politicians and liberal activists are almost always treated as a closely guarded secret by the liberal media. That effort to obfuscate Farrakhan was in full effect during Monday’s CBS Evening News report on Iranian sanctions as they ignored the anti-Semite’s chants of “death to America” and “death to Israel” while he was there on Sunday.
While CBS was whining about the U.S. reinstating the pre-nuclear deal sanctions on the radical regime, Fox News Channel’s Special Report was exposing Farrakhan. According to anchor Bret Baier:
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan led a “death to America” chant Sunday, during a trip to Tehran. That is according to Iranian news agencies. Farrakhan told law school students at the University of Tehran America has never been a democracy. He also led a “death to Israel” chant at the end of his talk.
Instead of mentioning this, CBS continued to side with Iran over the U.S. Network foreign correspondent and Iranian sympathizer Elizabeth Palmer noted: “The official reaction was belligerences. State television broadcast pictures of military air defense exercises. And an anti-American rally on Sunday was a sea of hostile signs and banners.”
