  • David Duke Endorses Keith Ellison For DNC Chair (NOT satire!)

    It doesn’t really matter who the chairman of the Democratic National Committee is, because it’s the Democratic National Committee. They’re pretty much screwed no matter what. With that in mind, why not pick someone who can bring everybody together?

    A top Democratic National Committee leader called the Republican Party "the party of racism" at a conference for liberal activists Friday, pointing to President Donald Trump's positions on immigrants and refugees. "You hear Republicans say, 'We're the party of Lincoln.' He wouldn't recognize these people," said Rep. Keith Ellison, a congressman from Minnesota and Democratic National Committee deputy chairman. "The fact is that the Republican Party today is the party of racism. Now I'm not saying every Republican is a racist, but I'm saying their party does hold that up. ... It is the Republican Party in 2017 that says,...

    Choosing denial and willful ignorance instead of knowledge of the motivating ideology of the jihadis who have vowed to destroy us. That’s just asking to be defeated. “If you have an amendment that says we’re going to study one religion and only one, we’re going to look at their leaders and put them on a list — only them — and you are going to talk about what’s orthodox practice and what’s unorthodox, then you are putting extra scrutiny on that religion,” said Muslim Brotherhood-linked Rep. Keith Ellison. Yes, you are. And there is a reason for that: 30,000 jihad...

    But that’s how a fundraising pitch from Democratic National Committee deputy director Keith Ellison is characterizing this moment of “resistance” to the agenda of President Trump. “Last week, on a special episode of Democrats Live with civil rights icons Congressman John Lewis and Heather Booth, we were given our charge: the resistance is our ‘Spartacus moment,'” reads the email from Ellison.

    WASHINGTON — Rarely has a municipal election in a midsize city ignited such a fierce national debate over what defines a Democrat. But the election this spring for mayor of Omaha is pitting abortion rights activists against economic populists and threatening the party’s unity as it regroups to confront President Trump. Part of the twist: The populist side’s standard-bearer, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, is not even a Democrat. (snip) Mr. Sanders and the new leadership of the Democratic National Committee touched a party sore spot this week when they took their “Unity Tour” to Omaha to rally for a...

    Didn’t Barack Obama brag about this three months ago, calling himself “the father of the Tea Party“? Not exactly, as DNC deputy chair Keith Ellison explains in this exchange on a panel at the University of Minnesota. Ellison argues that Obama failed to rebuild the party’s ground apparatus after his two presidential elections, and that this failure has put his “wonderful achievements” at risk. The truth, however, lies somewhere in between:(VIDEO-AT-LINK) “Look I’m a great fan of President Obama. I totally voted for many of the things he supported — Dodd Frank, Affordable Care Act, Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act...

    The mainstream media is obsessed with how Trump is changing the GOP. But the real transformation in American politics is happening in the Democratic Party. This week, newly minted Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez will travel cross-country with Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Keith Ellison on a Democratic Party “unity tour” that will take them to Maine, Kentucky, Florida, Texas, Nebraska, Utah, Arizona, and Nevada—mostly red states that Trump won. The purpose of their road trip, dubbed the “Come Together And Fight Back Tour,” is to shore up a badly fractured Democratic Party and present some semblance of a...

    It is a rule of thumb in contemporary politics that you should not mention Hitler in any context. Democrats and liberals regularly compare Republicans and conservatives with Nazis, but for the GOP, the MSM will make sure it backfires with round-the-clock selective righteous indignation. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s inarticulate invocation of Hitler in the context of Syrian sarin gas attacks was meant to condemn the use of such weapons, the operative word here, in war against civilian or even military targets. As Spicer meant to say, even the evil Hitler never dropped sarin gas bombs on London. The...

    Alan Dershowitz, a prominent Harvard Law School professor and liberal author, slammed the Democratic National Committee as hypocritical for politicizing White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s Hitler gaffe while ignoring its own problem with anti-Semitism. Mr. Dershowitz said on “CNN Tonight” that he’s willing to give Mr. Spicer “a pass” after the press secretary initially suggested during a briefing Tuesday, which also marked Passover, that Adolf Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons during WWII. “What happened here is the guy screwed up,” Mr. Dershowitz said, according to a clip published by Real Clear Politics. “He apologized, and he apologized from his...

    Democrats need to prepare for an ongoing fight against Republicans at all levels of government, not just the White House, their newly appointed deputy national chairman said on Saturday. “We can’t just say it’s all about Trump,” Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., said at the New Hampshire Democratic Party’s annual meeting. Ellison, who lost his bid for chairman of the Democratic National Committee to former Labor Secretary Tom Perez, said the party had lost focus on state legislatures and governorships. Democrats, he said, need a cohesive national message that can inspire ordinary Americans. “We’ve got to have a higher vision than...

    Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, the new deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, suggested Thursday that Attorney General Jeff Sessions deserves jail time for failing to mention his meetings with Russia’s ambassador during his confirmation hearing in January. In a statement issued Thursday morning, Ellison asserted that Sessions “lied under oath” in his Jan. 10 Senate confirmation hearing about the meetings with Kremlin’s diplomat, Sergey Kislyak. “Since it has now come to light that Attorney General Jeff Sessions lied under oath about meeting with Russian officials during the campaign, we must be entirely clear on one thing: perjury is a...

    In the end there will be only two types of Democrats: anti-Semites and cowards. Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. The Democrats care about anti-Semitism. They care so much that they had a presidential candidate and convention speaker who led an anti-Semitic riot through a Jewish neighborhood. “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house,” he had taunted his victims. He became a close presidential adviser whose endorsement is sought after by every Democrat...

    And he has a plan to make it happen, says former CAIR intern. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), the new deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and the first Muslim elected to Congress, has a plan to recruit additional Muslim lawmakers like him -- including possible candidates sponsored by a terror-tied Islamist group for which he helped raise millions of dollars, according to a source who once prayed alongside him in the basement of the Capitol. Ellison has held Friday, or jummah, prayers with other Muslims, including staffers from the Congressional Muslim Staff Association and officials from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR),...

    For all the tough talk about the so-called "alt-Right," it's fair to ask why Ellison's record has not been subject to greater scrutiny. It's an uncomfortable truth that anti-Semitism exists on the left just as it does on the right. If national Democrats are now trying to find ways to co-exist with it rather than smack it down, they deserve to be called on it. Whether anyone will look is an entirely different matter.

    When in doubt... blame the Jews. That's the approach that Keith Ellison's old gang in the Nation of Islam took. It's the approach that his new prog buddies are taking. There's the reality 1. Obama's people worked hard to swing votes from the DNC candidates that didn't make it to his guy, Tom Perez. It's why Keith Ellison didn't pick up their votes and Perez did. And there's the easy scapegoat... the Jews. 2. Blame the Jews

    Keith Ellison’s loss is noteworthy for a number of reasons, many of them unrelated to the fact that his victorious opponent will be the first self-identifying Hispanic to preside over the Democratic National Committee. Yes, ethnicity/race did play a pivotal role in this intra-party election, but not in the way that the mainstream media and Democratic shills would have you believe. Perez’s victory is not so much a case of Democrats implicitly rebuking President Trump and his purportedly anti-latino immigration policies as Barack Obama’s man on the inside once again stepping on the Bernie Bros. The party hatchet-man who did...

    The newly elected chair of the Democratic National Committee, Tom Perez, said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" that the Democratic Party's message will be carried out in part through lawsuits against President Trump. Perez, the former secretary of labor under President Obama, made the comment after host Chuck Todd asked if he is content with the Democratic Party being known as the party of "no." "Are you comfortable with the Democrats being known as the party of ‘no?'" Todd asked. Perez side-stepped the question, arguing the Democratic Party is the "party of opportunity and inclusion." "We are going to...

    Anyone who believes the Democrats dodged a bullet by choosing Perez over Ellison is wrong. Perez was not only the choice of the Clinton wing of the party, but he has many of the same issues as Hillary Clinton, including email, ethics, telling the truth, and a belief that only Caucasians can commit race crimes. This past December The Hill exposed that as reported that Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Perez used a private email account violating the Federal Records Act, and then tried to cover it up. ...

    President Trump early Sunday tweeted that the race for Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman was “rigged.” “Bernie's guy, like Bernie himself, never had a chance. Clinton demanded Perez!” Trump added. Former Labor Secretary Tom Perez on Saturday defeated Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) to become the next DNC chairman in a win for centrist Democrats. The race, which split along establishment-grassroots lines, in many ways mirrored the divisive 2016 presidential primary between Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Hillary Clinton. Sanders and many of his allies backed Ellison, the first-ever Muslim elected to Congress and a star on the left. “Congratulations to...

    ATLANTA (CNN)--Progressive activists lashed out at the Democratic Party on Saturday after their choice to lead its national committee, Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, was defeated by former Obama administration Labor Secretary Tom Perez in a tight and unexpectedly contentious contest. After the results were announced, angry Ellison loyalists rose from their seats in the back of the ballroom at the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel and tried to shout down outgoing interim chair Donna Brazile, chanting, "Party for the people, not big money!" "This shows that the Democratic Party didn't learn their lesson," said Alexa Vaca, an Ellison backer and supporter...
