Obama Gatekeeper Valerie Jarrett: Louis Farrahkan and the Koch Brothers Are the Same Thing
In case you haven't caught on, the Democrat Party has a Louis Farrakahn problem.
There are a number of Democrats on Capitol Hill who refuse to condemn the racist Nation of Islam leader, who is infamous for his defense of Hitler, saying white people are "devils" and for claiming the Jewish people were behind 9/11.
With Farrakahn back in the news thanks to direct connections to the Democrat Party, radical DNC Deputy Chairman Keith Ellision and leaders of the Women's March, former Obama White House gatekeeper Valerie Jarrett is condemning him...while also equating Farrakahn to the Koch Brothers.
During a recent appearance on ABC's The View, Jarrett argued political business and governing requires meeting with people you disagree with. She listed the Koch Brothers and Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch as examples and put them in the same category as Farrakahn.
Luckily, Republican Meghan McCain pushed back. Watch:
Notice how Jarrett failed to mention Barack Obama's time with Farrakahn in 2005. A photo of Obama with Farrakhan went undisclosed and unreported by a journalist for over a decade in order to protect the future President's career. It was finally released earlier this year.
A journalist announced last week that he will publish a photograph of then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama (D) and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan that he took in 2005 at a Congressional Black Caucus meeting, but did not make public because he believed it would have “made a difference” to Obama’s political future.
The photographer, Askia Muhammad, told the Trice Edney News Wire that he “gave the picture up at the time and basically swore secrecy.”
Charlies and David Koch regularly support conservative causes around the country. In additional, they fund hospitals and engage in a variety of charitable giving. They have never engaged in the kind of bigotry, hate and vile rhetoric regularly used by Farrahkan.
High-handed Obama Presidential Center is losing community support
Friend of the parks,There is so much to say in response to Mr. Obama's speech last week. Unfortunately the tone of the dialogue about the Obama Presidential Center is not living up to the standards that the Obama Foundations says it cares about in terms of disagreeing with one another while still being civil.We are thankful for a number of people who have made their voices heard recently, challenging some of the inaccuracies of many of the accusations that have been put forth and calling for a different kind of discourse.Statement from Our Executive Director Juanita Irizarry"Friends of the Parks remains extremely excited about the Obama Presidential Center coming to Chicago's south side. And we're glad that our hometown, former president considers equitable investment in Chicago's parks to be important. We agree with him on that. What we don't agree on is the appropriateness of long-term disinvestment in parks that culminates in the all-too-common argument that the only way to fix a park is to build a building in it.We are thankful that Obama's visit included a public announcement of the Obama Foundation's intent to pay for a turf field to make up for the one that will be displaced by the OPC. And we appreciate that the Obama Foundation had given Friends of the Parks a heads up on that in follow up to our conversations with them about the issue. But since it is an element of the CBA Coalition "Sustainability" platform, we wish the foundation would also sit down and talk with our allies who are leading the charge for a community benefits agreement.We are saddened by Obama's dismissiveness toward the many Chicagoans who dare to express opposing views or the need for appropriate vetting and review, not the least of which is the federally-required Section 106/NEPA review. Apparently, he's been away long enough that he has forgotten how the "City that Works" works. On a daily basis, we Chicagoans suffer the consequences of poor public policy decisions that stem from inadequate long-term planning, transparency, and oversight.In the end, Friends of the Parks has absolutely no argument with the idea that our first African-American president merits a prominent site. But we believe that refraining from building on parkland would more fully honor the legacy of a former community organizer who sought Friends of the Parks' advice years ago on expanding the amount of green space on Chicago's south side and later made it a point of his presidency to protect public lands.And so would leading a process that would engage the community in a much more healthy discourse than what Chicago is experiencing at this time. We remain hopeful that Obama will be the change in this regard."
