A couple of months ago, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was forced to resign for stacking the deck in Hillary Clinton’s favor. The current interim chair is Donna Brazile, and the top candidate for the job is now Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota. If you think Mr. Ellison would be better than the two previous chairs, then you are sadly mistaken.
Ellison is a committed Muslim who has ties to the radical Nation of Islam and has some pretty serious anti-Semitic leanings, as per The Weekly Standard. Of course, the mainstream media haven’t reported a word of this.
They failed to do any digging into Ellison’s background (and neither did the DNC, it seems) even after Ellison claimed he had been affiliated with the Nation of Islam for 18 months. As it turns out, he was affiliated with the movement much longer than that.
As a third-year law student, he wrote two columns under the name of “Keith Hakim” where he defended the practices of Nation of Islam spokesman Khalid Abdul Muhammad in 1988 and 1989. The two men apparently enjoyed a long friendship. During the million man march in 1995, Ellison stood on stage with Muhammad and proclaimed, “If words were swords, the chests of Jews, gays, and whites would be pierced.”
In 1990, Ellison sponsored a notorious radical named Kwame Ture to give a speech at his law school. It was entitled, “Zionism: Imperialism, White Supremacy, or Both?”
During Ellison’s initial bid for Congress, Nihad Awad flew out to meet him. Awad is the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations and has been a vocal supporter of the terror group Hamas. Is this the kind of connection the DNC wants its chair to have?
Further, Ellison once supported an individual who had been accused of plotting and carrying out an execution on a police officer. The case was never brought to trial due to lack of evidence, but the accusation is definitely an evil cherry on the top of Ellison’s already dubious character.
The fact that the Democrat Party propped up Hillary Clinton and moved the goal posts for her to get the nomination is bad enough.
They seem to have learned nothing from their latest failure at the polls. They should have learned not to pick leaders and candidates whom the public can’t trust! However, now they are continuing backwards. Are they really supporting an individual with ties to radical Islam as their next chairman?
Of course, there is another factor as to why the DNC supports people who are sure to fail them and Americans in general. The Democrats are too bound to political correctness to tell the truth about their people.
Liberals are always preaching tolerance, and they usually are doing so at their own peril, but when they fail to alert the public to a man with this type of background, they are doing it at the peril of American citizens as well.
Fortunately, political correctness is on its way out. Donald Trump’s rise to power was a repudiation of the evils of political correctness, which is usually nothing more than a glorified form of lying. Knowing Trump, he will repudiate Ellison as well.
