Election denier Hakeem Jeffries’ uncle was the famous anti-Semitic Professor Leonard Jeffries. However, he has repeatedly said he has only vague recollections of the controversy surrounding his uncle.
Hakeem lied, and now we have proof from fake news CNN of all places. It’s odd that CNN would tell the truth about a dishonest Democrat minority leader.
Jeffries was a board member of the Black Student Union. The BSU invited Leonard ‘Uncle Lenny’ Jeffries to speak at the school. That was after the controversy blew up in 1992. There was an uproar. The students didn’t want him there.
Good nephew Hakeem defended him.
After a Jewish student group called on the BSU to cancel the professor’s speaking engagement, Jeffries led a news conference defending his uncle and his speaking engagement.
“We have no intention of canceling a presentation that contains factual information, proven through scholarly documents and texts,” read Hakeem Jeffries from a statement reported in the student newspaper the Pipe Dream. “The proper way to way to debate scholarship is with scholarship–not with high-tech lynchings, media assassinations, character desecrations and venomous attacks.”
The BSU executive board also wrote an editorial in the student newspaper, Pipe Dream, defending Jeffries and condemning a comparison of the professor to the Ku Klux Klan.
Hakeem also wrote an editorial about his uncle in “The Vanguard,” the BSU student newspaper. WATCH THE CLIP:
MINORITY LEADER HAKEEM IS UNCLE LENNY
Hakeem is a crazy, hate-filled Marxist who is a hypocrite.
