Skip to comments.Keith Ellison - The Wrong Man at the Wrong Time
Posted on 11/30/2016 3:21:33 PM PST by Eleutheria5
Ellison's sordid past associations with Louis Farrakhan -- the long time leader of the Nation of Islam -- will hurt him in Middle America....
In addition to embracing American enemies abroad, Farrakhan has exhibited a penchant for lacing his sermons with anti-Semitic hate speech. Around the time that Ellison was working with the Nation of Islam, for example, Farrakhan was delivering speeches attacking "the synagogue as Satan." He described Jews as "wicked deceivers of the American people" that have "wrapped [their] tentacles around the U.S. government" and are "deceiving and sending this nation to hell." ....
Ellison has struggled to explain his association with Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam. He has acknowledged working with the Nation of Islam for about 18 months to organize the Minnesota delegation to Farrakhan's 1995 Million Man March in Washington. However, Ellison insists that he never joined the Nation of Islam and more recently, he has held himself out as a friend of the Jewish people and of Israel. This late conversion coincided with Ellison's decision to pursue elected office in Minnesota, and an apparent realization that his association with the Nation of Islam might hurt his political fortunes. In 2006, he wrote a letter to the Jewish Community Relations Council in Minneapolis, in which he apologized for failing to "adequately scrutinize the positions" of Farrakhan and other Nation of Islam leaders. "They were and are anti-Semitic, and I should have come to that conclusion earlier than I did."

It would have been enjoyable to see him used as a human punching bag by DJT.
Never Interfere With an Enemy While Hes in the Process of Destroying Himself
The Democrat Party is the Party of Hate. Let the hate be on full display with racist, Stalinist, anti-Semites like Keef X.
Free college for everyone. Hell, free everything for everyone.
All praise St Fidel.
Vote Democrat...let's turn America into Venezuela.
Mid-terms will be here before you know it. We’ll see The Donald mixing business and pleasure at Ellison’s expense then.
Please, Santa? Pretty please.
If this doesn’t make Jews wake up and smell the Jew Haters atop the Dem party and kiss them off nothing will ever do it.
My Jewish Dem friends and their relatives have been in denial that Obama’s love of the Muslim Brotherhood and hatred of Bibi wasn’t Jewish hatred. WTF?
pray he gets the job...more statehouse, more governnorships, more winnning!
Keith Ellison is the only one who can lead the democrat party (off a cliff).
Yeah and they’ll throw the race card as usual.
Agree but much more about Ellison. “He is the right man at the right time” because he exposes the Democrat Party as the party of anti-Semitism, anti-capitalism, anti-white rights, and the danger of black converts to Islam.
I’m glad he is going to be chosen, as well as crook Pelosi and Chucky Schmucky Schumer, a disgrace to sanity and America.
A few more picks like this and the Democrat Party will have to change its name to the “Crooks, Commies and Islamic Crazies Party” (the CCICP, similar to the old Soviet CCCP).
Go crazies go. I want to see the total destruction of the Democrat Party and its Marxist/racist/Islamophile majority.
Keith Ellison, Mohammedan. Allahu Akbar!
No no no no no no no no no.
Democrats, please do not listen to Alan Pervowitz.
I implore you, Choose Keith al Ellison as the DNC chairman -and the sooner the better.
Keith Ellison represents the values of the Democratic Party. He is a racial separatist, derides middle class values and has the support of uber-liberal NY Senator Chuck Schumer, Congressman Bernie Sanders, Minority leader Nancy Pelosi, and Senator Elizabeth Warren.
Prayer chain begun in support of this guy winning that spot. Pelosi winning.
Their winning means we are WINNING. Gosh I hate winning.
NOI or not, he is still a muslim and per his own religion he can’t make nice with the Jews. All muslims are anti-semitic.
I’ve listened to the guy on a few of the shows.
On top of everything else he’s effing STUPID, poorly spoken, mumble-mouthed, plainly scared of the camera lights and anyone with a question (although of course on MSM they handle him with kid gloves, ‘cause he is a Negro Democrat).
A simpleton, in a word.
