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:

((snip))

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?

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!

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.

Why is it that every time some Muslim opens fire on innocent people while screaming “Allah Ackbar!” I have to prove that I’m not prejudiced?

Muslims never seem to be asked to prove they like America.

I’m tired of the double standard.

Since Rep. Ellison is a member of Congress, I am sure what he meant to say was,”this is what could have happened.”

As a member of Congress, I am sure he will be able to “Amend & Extend” his remarks.
See. No lies. No bigotry.
Riiiiiight.

Absolutely. Muslims are taught that lying to an infidel is permitted if it is done to advance Islam. And Ellison knows it.

I was initially sympathetic to his story— but this is astonishing. One thing he ought to consider is a Hollywood career that was a brilliant performance. Seriously. Those certainly didn’t appear to be crocodile tears. To find out they were after such a convincing display of real but fake sadness tells me all I need to know how he got elected in the first place. Real talent there

Actually, the Constitution forbids us from questioning Ellison about what he said in Congress, so he can lie all he wants.

See Article I, Section 6 (about Senators and Representatives):

"...and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place."

I don’t know. “Moving” is how I would best describe my reaction to Keith Ellison’s passionate defense of Islam today. I hoped that he would soon be “moving” to Iran. Bob

“so he can lie all he wants.”

Or THEY can and do lie all they want. But by amending & extending his 'testimony', he will not be ridiculed by historians in the future.

“....muslims all over the world laughing and cheering as the buildings went down and so many innocents died horrible deaths.”

.
Not only over the world but right here on US college campuses, muslim students were hi-5ing each other for days.

Peter King never brought this fact up but he should have. The impression I got of King is that he was very apologetic about the whole procedure.

No conclusions will be reached, no recommendations made and congress critters will just put on the kneepads again when dealing with Islam.

This “topic” was posted on Drudge earlier and TAKEN DOWN——

“Where is Hussein al-Hussaini?”

“In 2005, I personally verified the location and activities of Hussain al-Hussaini, an ex-member of Saddam Hussein’s Republican Guard and a significant subject in Ms. Davis’ book. As detailed in The Third Terrorist and referenced in the report by Mr. Vernon, al-Hussaini had taken a job at Boston Logan airport four years before the events of 9/11; Boston Logan was the point of origin of two of the hijacked flights that would later slam into the World Trade Center on 9/11.

Today, Hussain al-Hussaini, appears to be among the missing. Shortly after a report about his activities and persons of specific interest residing in the Boston area in 2005 was submitted by the Northeast Intelligence Network, al-Hussaini seems to have dropped from sight – suddenly and apparently, with intent.

Make no mistake about it, there will be terrorist attacks by Islamic terrorists and state-sponsored agents inside the US – it’s simply a matter of time. When they happen, there will be plenty of people with the blood of innocent people on their hands.”

Maybe this is why Keith Ellison “cried” at the hearings by Peter King....we’re catching up with our enemies and “they” don’t like it. And, the dems will use “emotions” to hide their treason from their “ilk”.

Yeah the very person he named as being ‘smeared’ was actually commended in the Patriot Act!! The only person named was the one Ellison claims was smeared.

LIAR doesn’t begin to describe Ellison. He does practice his religion, eh?

It should. It should also be a violation of the ethics rules. So why no punishment?
