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, 'wall them off, ban them out, no transgender in the military.' If it's mean, if it's racist, if it's greedy, it's coming from them."
Ellison was speaking as part of a panel discussion at the Netroots Nation conference, an annual gathering for liberal activists. Ellison was the only representative from the party on the panel, and he made the comments after criticism from fellow panelists of Democrats, especially after the bruising primary fight in 2016 and failure to take control of the White House.
In response to this criticism from progressives of his party, Ellison argued that the Democratic Party was the best vessel of power those on the left have available to fulfill their goals.....

Must be a Goolag/FakeBook staffer
We are to believe this crap?
FRom a Black Moslem racist?
Says the party of Jim Crow and the party of Sin. Robert Sheets Byrd (D-KKK) who said that it’s okay to say nigger because he said that there are white niggers too.
And Obama and Clinton honored his funeral.
Barack Obama also gave Osama Bin Laden a respectful taxpayer funded Islamic funeral.
The DNC can FO.
True. But the GOP is doing it's best to empower the left also.
“Ellison argued that the Democratic Party was the best vessel of power those on the left have available to fulfill their goals.....”
That says it all. The Democratic Party is a vehicle used by ‘activists’ to change America and make it the way they want it to be, irrespective of what the rest of us want. The ultimate goal of any and all who seek elected office or work in politics should be to uphold the Constitution, protect the sovereignty of the USA, and to ensure a level playing field such that no ones Constitutional rights get trampled on. Elected office is not supposed to be a route to power that allows you to inflict your ideology on others.
More proof they are losing significantly.
The goals of the cultural Marxists and the Muslim Brotherhood are destruction of this civilization.
So, yeah, he’s probably correct: the DNC is the best hope for destroying America.
DNC is the party of pedophiles.
Ellison is an enemy islamist.
And, the DNC represents the party of slave owners.
Your race card expired on 01/20/2009. It is non-renewable.
LOL...The dems, the party of the KKK, which has nowand now morphed into the kill all whites party, says Republicans are racist.
Democrats better get wise to this muslim prik before it’s too late.
He’s gonna regret that statement.
What race does liberty consist of? Since it is the RATS that gratuitously bring up race consistently they are the racist party.
Yeah, they’ve been saying that since Hoover. It’s no truer now than it was then, but they keep saying it. Is there anything new in their Big Book O’ Insults?
Well they would certainly know having founded and ran the KKK for 150+ years now.
Dehumanizing your opponent is how wars start.
In the fwiw dept.
