Dem Who Met w/Hate Group Leader Says Trump Spews Intolerance

Rep. Andre Carson is all about tolerance. Tolerance for racists. Or at least his kind of racists.

Rep. Andre Carson, Indiana Democrat, swung back Friday at Jewish Republicans calling for him and other Congressional Black Caucus members to resign over their association with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

The Republican Jewish Coalition called last week for seven caucus members to step down for meeting with Mr. Farrakhan, describing him as the “moral equivalent of a leader of the KKK” for his virulent anti-Semitic rhetoric, but Mr. Carson attacked the group’s credibility.

At the same time, Mr. Carson acknowledged that he has met with Mr. Farrakhan, and condemned anti-Semitism without denouncing the Nation of Islam leader.

“I have met with him as other members of the Black Caucus have met with him, talking about anti-crime efforts, discrimination against women, and those kinds of things,” said Mr. Carson. “But I condemn any form of discrimination and I’ve been consistent.”

Except well, Farrakhan.

But Indiana’s moral leader is back to lecture on the evils of racism. Well Republican racism.
