The pastor who addressed the Democratic National Convention on Monday night, and suggested that those who support a border wall will “go to hell,” has praised Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a well-known anti-Semite, multiple times.

Pastor Frederick Haynes III of Friendship-West Baptist Church in Dallas was invited by the Democratic Party to speak during the convention alongside other black faith leaders.
He used the opportunity to insult President Donald Trump’s supporters, insinuating that they are racist because they do not support open borders.
“And you had the nerve to build a wall while at the same time you have in the harbor there in New York a Statue of Liberty saying, ‘Give me your tired, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,’ he said.
“Jesus will say, ‘America, if you don’t get your act together, you can —you may well go to hell,” Haynes continued. “Why? Because in as much as you do it to the least of these, my sisters and brothers, you are also doing it unto me.”
Haynes has openly tied himself to Farrakhan, an extreme black nationalist who has referred to Jews as “termites” and “cockroaches.”
“White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan, by God’s grace, has pulled the cover off of that Satanic Jew and I’m here to say your time is up, your world is through,” Farrakhan said back in 2018.
Haynes, however, had nothing but kind words to say about Farrakhan, who is a “prophetic leader of our time,” according to Haynes.
Just finished delivering Commencement address at Grambling State University. @LouisFarrakhan was attending the graduation of his beloved granddaughter! His gracious and generous compliments touched my heart! A wonderful and great man! pic.twitter.com/EydmFn7qJK
