WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released the following statement calling on Democrat National Committee Chair Tom Perez to address Deputy Chair Keith Ellison’s pattern of lies surrounding his relationship with Louis Farrakhan:
"Keith Ellison’s long pattern of lies about his ongoing relationship with Louis Farrakhan, who the Anti-Defamation League calls 'America’s leading anti-Semite,' has put a stain on the Democrat Party," said Chairwoman McDaniel. "Anti-Semitism has no place in American politics, Tom Perez must address this issue."
Examples of Louis Farrakhan’s hate speech:
- Jewish people are "satanic."
- Hitler is a "very great man."
- "White people deserve to die."
- Jews are responsible for "filth and degenerate behavior."
