Dem Candidate Held Event With Nation of Islam Members Outside Radical Mosque

From the Washington Free Beacon:
Democratic congressional candidate Ayanna Pressley appeared outside a mosque that has played host to numerous radical figures during her primary campaign this year.

Dr. Wesley Muhammad gave a lecture at Boston’s Muhammad Mosque No. 11 in February entitled “The Secret Relationship between Blacks and Jews: The Homosexual Conspiracy!” Months earlier, anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist Christopher Bollyn gave a lecture on his views that Zionists and Israelis were behind the 9/11 attacks and Randy Muhammad spoke about “The Truth About UFO’s.”

Pressley appeared outside the mosque in July.

The Boston city councilor made headlines earlier this week when she sent yet another shock to the Democratic establishment by defeating ten-term congressman Michael Capuano. Unlike previous upsets of moderate Democrats such as New York’s Joe Crowley, Capuano was a strident liberal and a member of the Progressive Caucus.

A Yahoo News profile of Pressley’s primary campaign indicated she owed her win to a strong ground game, holding dozens of events in a single afternoon.

“The Pressley campaign’s day illustrated the diversity of the district, as she met with leaders from the Puerto Rican and Haitian communities and hosted an event including volunteers in union T-shirts and members of the Nation of Islam, outside the mosque where Malcolm X once served as minister,” Yahoo reported.

Images posted to Pressley’s Twitter confirm that the event was held outside the Muhammad Mosque No. 11 and features the union volunteers, but not the Nation of Islam.

The Nation of Islam is considered a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center [So what? — Jihad Watch ed.] and other watchdogs for its history of anti-Semitic, homophobic, anti-white, and other bigoted stances. Leader Louis Farrkhan—who also once served as minister of Mosque No. 11—has defended Adolf Hitler, insisted 9/11 was committed by Jews, and taught that white people are subhuman devils created by an ancient African scientist named Yakub.

When asked for comment, the Pressley campaign did not address the particulars of the Yahoo News report or Pressley’s views on the Nation of Islam, but did broadly denounce “hateful viewpoints.”…
