But if you’re of the left, and happen to be a Democratic Party politician, you can get away with making excuses for notorious anti-Semite and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
And when those excuses are made, the left is largely silent.
You could throw in Sharpton as well: hates Jews hates whites, hates gays, but 'He's a leader of the African-American community!' Etc.

Brazil is fighting to stay ahead of one of its worst epidemics of yellow fever, a sometimes-fatal virus transmitted by Haemagogus and Sabethes mosquitoes and named for the yellowing of the skin and eyes of those infected.

That wasn’t our party, that was the Democrat party!" he said.And a bunch of the Democrats had fits, and got triggered, and "I have seen many of my colleagues emotionally shaken and bothered by either a lack of concern for facts. Or just simply playing to the cameras." Yeah, actually getting slapped with facts would do that to them.
