Conyers Gives A Lame Apology A Week Late

Congressman Conyers, who happily attended the Louis Farrakhan's racist speeches was shamed (or at least politically pushed) into an apology, and it only took a week.

After all, it's hard to explain why you don't walk out from a speech with multiple anti-white and Anti-Semitic statements. Of course, Congressman Conyers doesn't explain.

Instead:The Detroit Free Press: John Conyers apologizes for Louis Farrakhan's anti-Semitic remarks

U.S. Rep. John Conyers, a Detroit Democrat, apologized today for Louis Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic comments during a talk he gave in a Detroit church last week.

Conyers, who attended Farrakhan’s speech Friday night at Fellowship Chapel, issued a strong statement that distanced himself from the Nation of Islam leader’s remarks, which were blasted earlier this week by a Jewish civil rights group and others.

“Farrakhan made unacceptable racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic statements, which I condemn in the strongest possible terms,” Conyers said. “It was my expectation that Minister Farrakhan’s speech would focus on the many challenges facing the city of Detroit. In previous days, he had discussed efforts to revitalize our city by purchasing property and investing in blighted neighborhoods. Regrettably, he used this opportunity to promote views that have no place in civilized discourse.”

You'll note he didn't explain why he remained for such a speech filled with such uncivilized discourse, and he should be apologizing for lending scum like Farrakhan legitimacy rather than trying to apologize for Farrakhan's inexcusable conduct.

Maybe we'll hear that next week....
