Whoa! Dershowitz: ‘I Wouldn’t Have Campaigned for Obama If I’d Known….’

Well, well, well….Look what we have here. A photo of former President Barack Obama posting with Louis Farrakhan.

“If I had known that the president had posed smiling with [Louis Farrakhan] when he was a Senator, I would not have campaigned for Barack Obama,” said Harvard Law Professor and longtime Democrat Alan Dershowitz.

According to Fox News Insider, Farrakhan is a leader of the Nation of Islam, which Dershowitz described as “virulent anti-Semite and anti-American.”

Trending: Hillary Clinton Says Something Absolutely Insane

“He has called Judaism a gutter religion. He is a horrible, horrible human being,” he continued, “We should have nobody in public office associating with a bigot like Farrakhan.”

A photographer, Askia Muhammad, showed Fox News’ Tucker Carlson a 2005 picture of Obama and Farrakhan smiling together.

He said that afterward, the Congressional Black Caucus contacted him and demanded to have the photo back.

Muhammad stated, “I gave the original disk to him and in a sense swore myself to secrecy because I had quietly made a copy for myself.”

He added that he did believe the CBC was concerned that the photo would hurt Obama’s future, and it looks like that is coming to pass.

Muhammad added that Obama had Nation of Islam followers working in his Chicago senate office.

Dershowitz said he threatened to leave the Democratic Party if Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) – who once had connections with Farrakhan – was elected chairman instead of Tom Perez.
