Bush Like Hitler, Says First Muslim In Congress (Ellison)

Bush like Hitler, says first Muslim in Congress

By Toby Harnden in Washington

Keith Ellison, a convert to Islam, has cultivated a moderate image since being elected last November

America's first Muslim congressman has provoked outrage by apparently comparing President George W Bush to Adolf Hitler and hinting that he might have been responsible for the September 11 attacks.

Addressing a gathering of atheists in his home state of Minnesota, Keith Ellison, a Democrat, compared the 9/11 atrocities to the destruction of the Reichstag, the German parliament, in 1933. This was probably burned down by the Nazis in order to justify Hitler's later seizure of emergency powers.

"It's almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that," Mr Ellison said. "After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it, and it put the leader [Hitler] of that country in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted."

To applause from his audience of 300 members of Atheists for Human Rights, Mr Ellison said he would not accuse the Bush administration of planning 9/11 because "you know, that's how they put you in the nut-ball box - dismiss you".

Vice-President Dick Cheney's stance of refusing to answer some questions from Congress was "the very definition of totalitarianism, authoritarianism and dictatorship", he added.

Mr Ellison also raised eyebrows by telling his audience: "You'll always find this Muslim standing up for your right to be atheists all you want."

A convert to Islam who was previously linked to the extremist Nation of Islam, Mr Ellison, 42, has cultivated a moderate image since being elected last November, concentrating on issues such as health and education.

He is an outspoken critic of the war in Iraq. But he angered his own anti-war supporters by voting for a budget bill that aims to end the war over the next 18 months. His followers want an immediate withdrawal of US troops from Iraq.

After his speech was reported, Mr Ellison said he accepted that Osama bin Laden was responsible for 9/11. But his demagogic comments threaten to plunge him in controversy.

Mark Drake, of the Republican party in Minnesota, said: "To compare the democratically elected leader of the United States of America to Hitler is an absolute moral outrage which trivialises the horrors of Nazi Germany."

I am getting extremely close to considering the city of Minneapolis (and the territory within the Fifth Congressional District) in the same way that I consider the city of San Francisco. NOT part of the United States. In fact, part of some other hostile country. Except in this case Minneapolis is only a few miles from me.

They told us they were going to use our laws and tolerance against us and that they’d eventually vote to take us over.

Why gays and Jews support the Democrats I’ll never know - they’ll be the first to get stoned or beheaded.

“Keith Ellison, a convert to Islam, has cultivated a moderate image..”

Muslim and Moderate are contradictions in terms.

He’s like all of them - anti-western and anti-American.

Keith Ellison is probably a big fan of Hitler, because given the chance, Ellison probably would push jews into the gas chambers.

Difference between a radical Muslim and a ‘moderate’ Muslim:

Radical Muslim = uses rusty knife to cut throats of infidels

‘moderate’ Muslim = insists on using a new, clean blade.

The SANE people in this country are getting extremely fed up. Jesus was slow to anger, but he threw the money changers out of church. It’s getting closer, closer to the time when patriots will rise up and throw all of the malcontents out of America....one way or another.

No Rep Ellison, Hitler was a Bohemian artist. He was also a vegetarian, pagan, socialist, Utopian and he surrounded himself with Gays and kept trying to shut up people he disagreed with. In other wards he was a liberal Democrat like you are.

Is being compared to Hitler a good or a bad thing to Muslims? Mein Kampf is still a best seller in the Mideast and they applaud Hitler for killing so many Jews. Or at least they do on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. On the other days they deny the Holocaust and claim that it is a Jewish conspiracy.

Again, Tom.....It’s not a Minnesota vote that put Keith in. It’s the GLBT core of the 5th district that put him on the hill.

Left to the state, he wouldn’t be elected dog catcher.

A moderate Muslim is one who will cut off your hands instead of your head, and only kill half of your family when he bombs your house.

The state is infested with Muhammadan extremists like Ellison, and moon bat Democrats all too willing to elect them, all with the full support of the democrat party's ring leaders, which is why they spend so much time campaigning in Muhammadan infested states- to reassure them that they are the party for Anti American, anti Western, anti Christian, jihadists. That through them, they can launch their political jihad and destroy America from within the political structure of the nation as well as be assured that they have support for other methods of Jihad as well.

Wake up America, we are under attack on many fronts.

“Nation of Islam” is not islam. Ask any middle eastern muslim about “Nation of islam” and you will hear some not very nice things and a lot of snickering and laughing. I suspect this guy is “Nation of Islam”, which is a strictly american phenomenon.
