Muslim congressman weeps at terror hearing (No tears will hide the truth of what we know)
msnbc ^ | 3/10/2011 | msnbc

Posted on 03/10/2011 3:34:49 PM PST by tobyhill

Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim congressman, gave emotional testimony Thursday to a House of Representatives committee hearing on radicalization in the U.S. Muslim community.

Tearfully describing the story of a Muslim-American first-responder paramedic who died on September 11, 2001, Ellison criticized New York Republican Rep. Peter King for leading the controversial hearings that have reignited a national debate over how to combat a spate of home grown terrorism. Muslims in America: Demographics and beliefs "Mohammed Salman Hamdani was a fellow American who gave his life for other Americans," Ellison said, his voice breaking. "His life should not be defined as a member of an ethnic group or a member of a religion, but as an American who gave everything for his fellow citizens."

"This committee's approach to violent extremism is contrary to American values and threatens our security," Ellison said. The congressman tried to hide his tears behind his papers and quickly left the room after his remarks.

Did anyone actually see any tears on that man’s face? I didn’t. The blubbering was all for show.

If the camel jockey is so distraught, maybe he should return with the goat herders to his "Fatherland".

Gimme a break; these fools stick dynamite up their asses, and we're supposed to NOT confront that mentality due to "racial profiling".

It ain't the Rogue Amish that burn down cities, rob anyone white, or live off others' earnings......

If the guy is dead, why should he care about it? Quit'cher whining ya big baby.

If the death cult members have nothing to hide, then they've got nothing to fear. Isn't that what the Feds are always telling honest Americans?

Think so.

Poor wittle Muslim--big bad Christians are out to get him. Boo hoo.

I couldn't care less. Islam should be outlawed in the US. These people want to overthrow our government and our way of life. Bring back the Un-American Activities Committee.

That was the absolute worst fake-crying I ever saw in my life. It made Slick Willy Clinton's job of fake-crying when leaving that funeral look like an Oscar-level performance.

Ellison's buffoonery was painfully embarrassing to watch. No tears, ad the absolute most ghastly acting job ever. The jerk should be laughed out of Congress for that piss-poor fakery.

A clip of his blubbering was played on the news. Nauseating. They (Islamic fascists/commie dems) have ‘Americans’ pegged as soft and know just how to use our best characteristics against us and this clearly was an attempt to do just that. Hopefully people are hardening their hearts because I can honestly say, mine has turned to granite.

The famous guise of tears, trick #33. Almost as good as laying down and playing dead.

I vood tink it was all smoke and mirrors, so he could escape questioning and perhaps some embarrassing questions about his past and his still current relationships.

If terrorism committed by Muslims had instead been committed by Christians, Keith Ellison, Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, and about 1000 other Democrats would be lining up hearings on a daily basis.

F these hypocrites and their Taqqiyah crocodile tears.

He knows that the Muslim population is not the homogeneous group that is put forward.

Until the moderate Islamists develop the courage to discredit and attack those among them who are radical and dangerous and true American enemies, he must be looked upon with disdain.

He has become an an American enemy because of his political and religious cowardice.

Was the first-responder paramedic who died on 9/11 a relative of Rep. Keith Ellison? Why was he crying about someone he never met who died ten years ago? Why was he not crying for the 3,000 Americans who died on that day? Is he emotionally disturbed? Is he afraid of what they will find when they take a look at his connections to terrorism?

The one real important thing about Rep. Peter King investigation is that it will put American Muslims on notice that we are watching you. You have nothing to fear if you have nothing to hide, but if you are part that have been pushing for Sharia law, then you do not believe in America.

I received an email today that pointed out the following -

"We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectre of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam."

"The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honour-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers."

"The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful Muslim majority, the 'silent majority,' is cowed and extraneous."

I don't think the Muslim congressman is cowed or extraneous. He is part of the problem, possibly one of the . . . *sigh*. . . fanatics.

Ellison said that “some people” tried to smear the Muzzie Fire Fighter...what EVIDENCE does the Muzzie Rep have to support his allegations?

Watching Hissy Chrissy on MSNBC now and he is propagating the smear campaign against Rep. King. Saying King FAILED today, that he spoke of HATE today. Said King was pushing a personal agenda.

Also Chrissy showed vedieo of Rep Jeff Duncan, R-SC speaking about the threat of Sharia Law to the US Constitution. Very good question by the Rep, “How will Sharia law affect the US?.

More “Stoking fear, political craziness says Chrissy as he plays video of Newt speaking about, Under NO Circumstance that Sharia Law would EVER be used in a US court. More video and cherry picked video and audio of Beck, Rush, Sharon Angle etc. to show how radical and “a band of nit wits” the Republicans are...

This libtards are beyond the pale, they are completely nuts.

He was one of the loudest voices of opposition to the hearings. These are tears of guilt -- a large number of youths were radicalized from his district. He didn't find out why or help.

Unfortunately he died in vain because his death is cancelled out by the several other Muslim Americans who have tried to kill hundreds if not thousand of other Americans.

.....and.....HOW, exactly, does it “threaten our security”?

Why doesn’t anyone call this clown on that type of rhetoric?

Why doesn’t anyone ask him flat out where the tears for the other 3000 victims of 9/11 are?

What a jackhole.

This article provides the text of something written by the Honorable Gentleman from Minnesota a few years back about the United States Constitution:
Racism means conspiracy to subjugate and actual subjugation. That means planned social, economic, military, religious and political subjugation of whites. It cannot be intelligently argued that the Nation of Islam is doing this. In fact, blacks have no history of harming or subjecting whites as a class. On the other hand, whites have it written into their very Constitution that blacks shall be considered three-fifths of a person for purposes of taxation and representation of their white owners. Their Constitution also makes provision for the return of runaway slaves. Their constitution [sic] is the bedrock of American law; it’s the best evidence of a white racist conspiracy to subjugate other peoples. (emphasis added)
The Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution (1865) abolished slavery; the Fourteenth Amendment (1868) changed voting representation to eliminate any reference to 3/5ths for non-free persons.

Mr. Ellison's use in his screed of the present tense is strong evidence that he is illiterate, abysmally ignorant of the U.S. Constitution or intentionally deceitful.

As a Member of Congress, Mr. Ellison presumably votes on national laws for the United States.

"Why was he crying about someone he never met who died ten years ago?"

He wasn't crying. He was faking (quite badly, I must say) emotional turmoil while bald-face lieing about "some comments" at the time which, in fact, nobody ever uttered.

Ellison is one of the worst, morally void grandstanding human scum ever to waste perfectly good oxygen.
