Atheists applaud Ellison's views on Cheney, Libby, 9/11

"You'll always find this Muslim standing up for your right to be atheists," he told the group.

By Mike Kaszuba, Star Tribune

Freshman Congressman Keith Ellison was among friends Sunday -- in this case, a gathering of atheists -- so his support for a fistful of hot-button opinions, including the impeachment of Vice President Dick Cheney...

On impeaching Cheney, which the Minneapolis DFLer supports: "[It is] beneath his dignity in order for him to answer any questions from the citizens of the United States. That is the very definition of totalitarianism, authoritarianism and dictatorship."

This article is brutally snipped, but it is worth the click for the whole sordid thing.

My fave part:

Ellison's noontime speech before Atheists for Human Rights, a Minneapolis-based group, drew the largest gathering in recent memory for the organization, said Marie Castle, the group's spokeswoman. "We're trying to upgrade the image of atheists," Castle said of the 350-member group. "They don't think we have a moral compass."

Hey, but the great idea of hanging out with Ellison is really gonna help that... not.

I just saw that this had already been posted... by searching "Ellison's", instead of just "Ellison". Is there any way to have the standard front page search engine pick up partials? (I've had this trouble before...)

Great thinking there, buddy. Next send an invite to Calypso Louie & the Mothership Gang. That should complete the upgrade.

Leftists who claim to be atheists give atheists a bad name. Leftists are essentially communists, which means that they worship Marx, which means that they are not atheists. You cannot believe the things that leftists believe and claim to be free of faith-based reasoning. As an employer of mine used to like to say when an engineer came up with a really stupid explanation of something: “Compared to that, believing in God is nothing”.

LOL.

(It does seem an odd way to try and look more "moral".)

Leftists claiming to be anything other than leftists gives everything they touch a bad name... The National Council of Churches and several "Jewish" groups immediately come to mind.

And another thing (target-rich environment, missed a few...): Anyone who claims to be an atheist is a fool to hang out with Muslims. While acquiring power, Muslims like to use atheists as scapegoats so as to prove that they (the Muslims) are “just like” Christians and Jews. Once they have power, Muslims are more likely to slaughter atheists than members of recognized religions (no hostage value).

Minneapolis and Minnesota will pay for Ellison. Minneapolis is becomming a Muslim stronghold. That can’t be good.

Well, I'm one of those evil believers who might already think an atheist is a little foolish... but an atheist who befriends a Muslim is definitely a 'tard. (LOL)

The quote says it all - “You’ll always find this Muslim standing up for your right to be atheists,” he told the group.

Notice how he states “this” muslim? I’ll bet his homeboys in the middle east don’t feel the same about athiests.

An athiest would last as long as a Jew in Palestine over there.

I have lived up here for 24 years and can’t believe what has and how it all happened.

There are sections of MPLS that are totally moslem. I wouldn’t go through them if ya paid me to.

In less then 10 short years - BAMMMM!!

I can not wait to pull my short tap root and bail on this place after I retire. That is if the moslems don’t blow the place up before then.

The airport/ taxi driver fiasco was my last straw. Although, the dopes in my district voting in Ellison ranks right up there also.

Heck, we had a perfectly good liberal lesbian running against him as an independent canidate. I thought for sure she was a shoo-in because - like someone said earlier - she was a two-fer.

Boy, I missed that one!

The fact is that I'm not saying [Sept. 11] was a [U.S.] plan, or anything like that because, you know, that's how they put you in the nut-ball box -- dismiss you."

Okay, you convinced me. You are a nut-ball.

Supporting and even encouraging atheism only helps their cause.

Godless people only know how to ‘fight’ for their non-belief through the liberal court system. They for darn sure won’t go to war to ensure their right to atheism.

Which is why atheists would lose the battle for religious freedom and peace against radical Islam, if left up to them.

Oh, my... your post made me LOL, but almost so as to prevent the crying.

It's easy to aloofly mock from a distance, but I can't imagine what it's like to be so up close and personal to it all.

Footbath, anyone?

This atheist HAS gone to war to defend our freedom of religion, and I'd do it again. And also for the record, I'm about as far from a modern liberal as one can get.

I didn’t know muslims had the warm fuzzies for atheists.

They sure hated the “godless” Russians during the Russian war in Afghanistan.

I suspect some junior muslim congressman is pandering to atheists and lying about his core beliefs, in true islamic fashion

AnnaZ - all I can tell you is that it is pretty darn depressing to see it coming down around you.

The moslems are a unique group. They are the first ones to holler for justice and to cry discrimination. They are also the first ones to upset the natural state of things - ie; the cab drivers, the special rooms in schools for “prayers”, the footbaths. Now they are trying the sharia law crap on us. I could go on and on but what purpose would it serve.

Plus the politicians up here cater to them at the expense of long time citizens. It is very sad for someone like me to see this.

I can not stand the swimmer Kennedy for what he and his liberal ilk foisted on our citizenry starting in 1965.

Hi 66,

Check out the Minnesota board of FR. You are not alone in this state.

Yes, it is depressing. I lived in Minneapolis for 20 years and get back there for FR gatherings.

We’ll have one this fall. Check in and commiserate. :)

On comparing Sept. 11 to the burning of the Reichstag building in Nazi Germany: "It's almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that. After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it and it put the leader of that country [Hitler] in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted. The fact is that I'm not saying [Sept. 11] was a [U.S.] plan, or anything like that"

Soooo, what exactly are you saying, congressman???

This is what they call the enemy within, we are not only fighting these dispicable subhumans abroad we are fighting them here in America. It is time we elect a leader and leaders in the senate and congress who will deal harshly with the haters of America! Either your with us or your against us! They choose the latter we choose to throw them the hell out of our country!
