Rep. Keith Ellisonís Bigotry
National Review Online ^ | 3/10/2011 | MATTHEW SHAFFER

Posted on 03/10/2011 6:58:55 PM PST by South40

The congressman told a teachable story this morning. One problem: It’s untrue.

This morning, Rep. Keith Ellison (Democratic-Farmer-Labor party, Minn.) appropriated a hearing on Islamic radicalism by weeping his way through a speech about whata-buncha-nasty-bigots Americans are. He chose as his case in point Mohammed Salman Hamdani, a Pakistani-born Muslim American who rushed to lower Manhattan on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, to assist in rescue efforts, and died in the collapse of the World Trade Center. Here’s how Representative Ellison tells the story of the aftermath of his death:

Does Ellison’s account check out with reality?

No. It is actually pretty close to the opposite of the truth.

Perhaps our in-house Muslim-apologist can tell us whether truth matters to liberals.

True enough. But when one who has been duly elected to congress is testifying/speaking at a congressional hearing the rule of law should prevail.

Let’s face it, liberals never let the truth get in the way of a good sob story.

He painted himself a fraud years ago. Remember his immediate, rehearsed, press conference response in defense of the Six Flying Imams? That whole thing was so obviously orchestrated, from the start. I'm sure they spawned it all at their little Islamic conference.

I'm more disgusted with his idiot constituents than I am with him. No votes, no power. We put the corrupt trash of society in charge of things, then wonder what's wrong.

I heard a bit of this speech on the radio and again on Foxnews and both times I could not stop laughing.

I mean if you are going to lie then at least do it like a man.

Oh forgive me that is not possible, he is a Democrat.

I'd like to know why he's getting a pass from the lamestream media for crying when John Boehner was accused of being a girly-man for doing the same. Oh yeah, that's right...they're the CommieLibObammunist lamestream media. What was I thinking?

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

I still remember the videos of muslims all over the world laughing and cheering as the buildings went down and so many innocents died horrible deaths. Watch out citizens - they have a plan for America and it ain’t pretty. Peter King....you go bro!

I’d like to see Osama bin Laden bitch-slap Ellison and tell him to man up.

If we had a real, fearless, patriotic Commander in Chief, this Keith Ellison creature would be waterboarded without mercy. I have no doubts whatsoever that this Minnesota Muzzie knows what his fellow Islamofascists have planned. He ought to be pumped for as much information as can be had for the good of our country.

These are perilous times and political correctness must die a rapid death.

Abort Islam!

They hate America - the feeling is mutual.

What concerns me more is the general apathy for the Constitution reported to exist in the subcultural enclaves bounded within the borders of the United States.

I think it's more important that the words he was saying were lies.

Read the link (if you haven't). Ellison was lying through his teeth. It's a sad fact and a shame that there are few if any responsible enough in the media to call him on it. Moreover, they should call him for using Mohammed Salman Hamdani as a prop in the way he has.

Rep. Keith Ellison is a lying POS.
