Nation of Islam leader and noted anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan chanted “Death to America” and claimed “America has never been a democracy” on Sunday during a trip to Iran ahead of the re-implementation of U.S. sanctions this week.
In his remarks at a meeting with the Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council, Farrakhan condemned the new sanctions. “Today, I warn the American government that sanctioning Iran is a big mistake,” he said. “America has never been a democracy and has always leaned towards the wealthy and powerful class.”
At the end, Farrakhan led the audience in a chant of the common Iranian slogan “Death to America!”
