WASHINGTON (Monday, March 12, 2018) — U.S. Rep. Luke Messer (IN-06) issued the following statement calling on all lawmakers with ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan to publicly denounce him.

"Louis Farrakhan’s shameful history of anti-Semitic comments has no place in our society,” Messer said. “Anyone who has ties to him should publicly denounce and condemn him. We cannot tolerate Farrakhan’s hateful rhetoric and it’s long past time Democratic leaders cut ties with him once and for all.”

Just weeks ago, Farrakhan gave a speech full of anti-Semitic and anti-white remarks. Recent reports indicate then-Senator Barack Obama, current Democratic National Committee Deputy Chair Keith Ellison, and several Democrat Members of Congress met with Farrakhan.
