Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz appeared on Fox News Saturday and said that had he seen the photo of Barack Obama and Louis Farrakhan he wouldn’t have campaigned for him.
“Louis Farrakhan is a virulent anti-Semite,” Dershowitz told “Fox & Friends.”
“He’s called Judaism a gutter religion. He’s anti-American. He is a horrible, horrible human being. And, if I had known that the president had posed smilingly with him when he was a senator, I would not have campaigned for Barack Obama. It would have influenced my decision. Look, I threatened to leave the Democratic Party if Keith Ellison were elected as chairman because of his association with Farrakhan.” (RELATED: Dershowitz: Mueller Has A ‘Credibility Problem’ [VIDEO])
He continued, “You don’t associate with a bigot. You don’t associate with an anti-Semite. There should be zero tolerance for that kind of bigotry. And if Barack Obama associated with him, if the Black Caucus invited him, that’s–I don’t blame them for trying to suppress the truth–because that’s a really horrible truth. We should have nobody in public office associating with a bigot like the Reverend Farrakhan.”
A photo emerged this week of former President Barack Obama with Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the anti-Semitic, black nationalist Nation of Islam. (RELATED: Bombshell Photo Emerges Of Obama Smiling With Black Nationalist Hate Group Leader Louis Farrakhan)
