Democrats Pick Radical Muslim Keith Ellison as Deputy Chairman

The Democrat party continues its descent into oblivion by allowing a Muslim extremist named Keith Ellison to be named its “deputy chairman”. Democrats picked Obama labor secretary Tom Perez as chairman and Perez then picked Ellison “deputy chairman” by acclimation, although the deputy post is apparently not even an official one. Perez picked Ellison by suspending party rules.

Ellison ran for chairman but lost. Even a committed lifelong Democrat operative and pollster named Doug Schoen said that if Ellison were chosen chairman, that the choice would be “calamitous”. Prominent Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz said that he would leave the Democrat party if Ellison were elected chairman.

The choice of Ellison as “deputy chairman” is almost as bad. Rest assured that Ellison is going to sit in his post until he has the opportunity to advance to chairman, for which he will be considered next in line. After all, party chairmen come and go, and this would be part of the militant Muslim plan to infiltrate the American government at every level.

Ellison is a black US congressman who has been in office since 2006. He represents Minnesota’s 5th congressional district (Minneapolis and some suburbs) in Washington. He was raised Catholic in Detroit and converted to Islam at age 19.

Putting Ellison in this post is truly political suicide. Democrats are continuing to make a fatal miscalculation, that by catering to various individual groups like Muslims, blacks and gays that they can win over America. They cannot. Obama tried that and Democrats lost historic amounts of political power under his presidency, losing more than 1,200 political seats nationwide to Republicans in federal, state, county and local governments.

Party chairman typically is a non-controversial post, usually people who are devoted party activists who work quietly behind the scenes. But with Ellison as deputy, every Republican, conservative and populist politician, candidate and commentator, including president Trump, will be able to refer to the Democrat party as having a “Muslim extremist” as its deputy chairman and probably its eventual chairman. This will be a super-effective strategy against Democrats, just another tool to tear them down further from their already weakened position.

How extreme is Ellison? Very extreme. Here are some of his past actions and quotes (thanks to the Washington Free Beacon for much of this info):

*In March 2014, Ellison was asked by a TV interviewer, “Then why doesn’t your (Democrat) party come out against the Second Amendment? It’s the problem”, and Ellison responded, “I sure wish they would.”

*In 1990 Ellison accused a college president of censoring free speech for criticizing the remarks of guest speaker Kwame Ture (also known as Stokely Carmichael) who said that Zionists (Jews) worked with the nazis during World War II and that “Zionism must be destroyed.”

*Ellison has had long-term ties to the radical, anti-American and anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

*In a 2007 speech Ellison said that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were set up by the American government to spark hatred of Muslims. He compared 9/11 to the Reichstag fire that helped bring Adolf Hitler to power in nazi Germany.

*During a 2008 trip to Saudi Arabia Ellison met with a militant Muslim cleric, Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah, who issued a ‘fatwa’ in 2004 that urged war against US forces in Iraq. Ellison also met with the president of a bank that paid the families of Palestinian suicide bombers who attacked Jews in Israel.

*Ellison, who is a lawyer, is so ignorant that he claimed in a 2012 interview that Germany had bombed Pearl Harbor in 1941.

*Ellison said in 1992 that black Americans need not obey the US government because it considers them “less than human.” He added that black people do not live in a democracy.

*Ellison once wrote that the U.S. Constitution is the “best evidence of a white racist conspiracy to subjugate other peoples.”

*He has been rabidly anti-Israel and anti-Semitic in claiming that Israel controls US foreign policy and that “an oppressed group could not be racist toward Jews because Jews were themselves oppressors.”

The Democrats are in total meltdown and Ellison is the latest example.
