Skip to comments.Rep. Keith Ellison Rewrites History on his Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR Ties
Posted on 07/22/2012 12:18:34 PM PDT by bayouranger
The most recent salvo in the kerfuffle between Minnesota congressmen Michele Bachmann and Keith Ellison finds Ellison attacking Bachmann for her statements made on Glenn Becks radio program on Thursday, where she said:
GLENN: Okay. So when you wrote this letter, then Keith Ellison comes out. And Keith Ellison is ‑‑ he has a record of being the Mafia hitman.
CONGRESSWOMAN BACHMANN: Well, he has a long record of being associated with CAIR and with the Muslim Brotherhood. CAIR is an unindicted co‑conspirator, as stated in the large terrorist financing case that weve had in the United States of America and so he came out and essentially wanted to shut down the inspectors general from even looking into any of the questions that we were asking. So he wanted to shut it down. In response I wrote another letter back to Keith Ellison, a 16‑page letter which I would encourage all of your listeners to go and read this letter. Its what I call a bulletproof letter. I have 59 footnotes with one example after another of the penetration of the Muslim Brotherhood into the federal government
In response, Ellison told the Huffington Post:
I am not now, nor have I ever been, associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, he said with a laugh.
In fact, it is his denial that is laughable.
But this weekend Ellison doubled-down on his denial, telling Politico:
I support American institutions. I dont know enough about [the Muslim Brotherhood]. What I know about them is that in Egypt, one of their candidates has ascended to the presidency. Ive never met that person. But I do think the United States should have a foreign policy where we talk to foreign leaders of all kinds. But no, I dont have any, I dont have any Muslim Brotherhood connections that shes talking about.
According to Ellisons impeccable logic, since he hasnt met Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood leader and new Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, therefore he has no knowledge of the Muslim Brotherhood.
But a mountain of evidence of his contacts with and support of Muslim Brotherhood front groups identified as such by the U.S. Government shows that the Muslim Brotherhood definitely knows who he is.
Rewind to 2008 when Keith Ellison went on a 16-day hajj trip to Saudi Arabia paid for by the Muslim American Society (MAS) to the tune of $13,500.
As Scott Johnson at Powerline noted at the time that Ellison had conflicting stories about who paid for the trip:
The Star Tribune first reported on Ellisons hajj in two puff pieces by Mitch Anderson this past December. Anderson first reported the statement of Ellison spokesman Rick Jauert that Ellison had paid for the trip himself. When Anderson returned to the story, he got such deep stuff from Ellison as this: This is just me trying to be the best person I can be. In the second story Anderson also reported that the MAS Minnesota paid for Ellisons trip to Mecca, though Anderson didnt pause to note the discrepancy between his two stories on this point.
As Fox News reported on the MAS sponsorship of Ellisons trip, Ellison returned the favor to his benefactors by speaking at the 2007 and 2008 MAS-Minnesota conventions.
But who is MAS?
Fortunately, federal prosecutors cleared up the matter back in December 2007 when they said in a court filing in the federal appeal of convicted terror operative Sabri Benkahla (page 58, footnote 13):
MAS was founded as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.
Ellison? Is that the name he’s using now? I thought he was going by Malumba Ta’Wane Bundaza X these days.
Does he still recommend “offing pigs”?
Ellison the muzzie needs to be charged with espionage and sent to a muslim nation that would be glad to have this African.
Just your everyday common lying mussy a-hole.
Ellison and Huma are dangerous, but even more dangerous are those non-Muslims in government who have taken (bribe) money from the Saudis and other ME sources.
Agreed & they’re going to be “outed” shortly too.
Something tells me that they won’t be “loud & proud” about it though..
“There is no mention of Huma in the letter.
So ask yourself this...who first raised her name as having been mentioned?
No money prize, but you’ll get a Kewpie doll. “
Keep the doll...who slipped up?
Read her letter here where she corrects him...@ http://bachmann.house.gov/uploadedfiles/letter_to_rep._ellison.pdf

Pardon me, FRiend, but I’m always bouncing between too many browsers & too many articles to take note of everything(although I DO try).
Heck..I’m only human.
BTW, that’s one hellova catch.
A real lunker!
BTW, thats one hellova catch.
Just tracking it backwards.
A real lunker!
Ellison or the connection? I'd use a much more...colorful...term of art if I were describing him.
