Dem Rep. Ellison: Islamist Terrorism/US Income Inequality—Same Struggle!
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 01/17/2014 6:17:04 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

Whatever the question, politicians have a way of working their issue of the day into the answer. Dem Rep. Keith Ellison took that tendency to new heights today.

Asked on Morning Joe to explain the disproportionate amount of terrorism against the United States that emanates from the Islamic world, Ellison, the first Muslim Member of Congress, asserted that it is the struggle for democracy, not the Islamic faith, that motivates the terrorism. In a giant leap, Ellison then compared people in Islamic countries "who don't want to yield power to the vast majority" . . . to the struggle in the United States over . . . "income inequality."

And bin Laden attacked NY and DC because he grew up in poverty?

These Leftists just make up things as they go. So what if they lie? The media will cover for them.

US Income Inequality? It must not be too ‘inequal’ or we wouldn’t have hundreds of thousands illegally trying to get into this nation.

Congressmen should not be paid more than the average weekly wage of the citizens in their district.

And anyone registering as a democrat should have all income over $90,000 a year taxed at a rate of 99.7%.

Of course it’s the same struggle; they both have the same enemy: freedom and the traditional American way of life.

Morning Jerk should ask the Israelis, Copts, Zoroasstrians, Animists, African Christians, Bahais, Armenians, Hindus and Greeks about the “disproprotionate” share of Islamic Terrorism aimed at the U.S.

Liberals are such historical ignoramuses.

Just like Ayers, Dhorn and other Whites who were part of the weather underground who came from privileged backgrounds and pretend to be "down for the struggle".

Notice how NONE - NOT ONE - of these Muslims EVER apologize for the crimes of Islam. And that is simple. Attacking non-Muslims in any way possible, including ENSLAVING THEM - is permitted, encouraged and lauded by Islam. As a matter of fact, it is one of their religious “duties”.

Thanks, MN-5 voters. You’ve given the country quite a winner there.

The same moron,* the one and ONLY muzzie in the House,* actually supports the Wisc teacher's union position to allow at least some convicted sex offenders to work in the public schools. What does this tell us?

Then why are Islamic countries the poorest in the world? Could it BE because of their VIOLENT OPPRESSION not only of Christians, but women, children, and minorities even who share their radical faith? The private hell of those oppressed by Islam is constantly on my mind and in my prayers.

Maybe we should give Muslims more welfare, special affirmative action considerations in every way, and send more billions in foreign aid to their native sh!thole countries. That should help even the score and make them love us more.

Oh, wait. We're already doing that, Never mind...

Sounds like 'ole Keith's after the latter!

There’s stupid and then there’s EVIL. Islam worships Satan. The first hint is the way Islamists pray...their butts pointed toward heaven and their heads pointed toward hell. The first sacrament of their religion is: murder innocents. Nothing good comes from Islam.

We have an Islamist in the White House. And we complain about the destruction of our country? What did we expect? Evil breeds destruction.

Of course, there is a link between Islamic terrorism and income inequity. It is known as jizya, the Islamic tax on nonbelievers. IMO, that is where all this talk of income inequality is ultimately going - the rest of the world will be subsidizing the economic basket cases in the Islamic world.

Sounds like an argument in favor of Suicide Bombing for Cash. Maybe he or his kids can start things off with their very own belts.
