In the aftermath of Democrats trouncing in the 2016 election, the progressives who captured leadership in that party have, stunningly, veered even further to the left in response. It is a testimony to how out of touch they are with the majority of the American people.
With Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Donna Brazile exposed as lying, conniving cheats who would throw anyone under the bus to win, the DNC’s progressive oligarchy is searching for a replacement to lead the committee. However, according to The Daily Caller, the current front-runner for that position, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), is being exposed – through his own writings – as an Islamofascist bigot and a racist.
Ellison became one of the sweethearts of the progressive-left when he won election to Congress in 2006. He was sworn in on a Quran instead of a Bible. Since that time, he has been a staunch, devoted progressive who has demonstrated sympathies to Islamofascism and movements like Black Lives Matter.
But Ellison’s most radical leanings always bubbled just under the surface. These extreme leftist leanings were recently exposed in the discovery of two opinion columns he wrote for Minnesota Daily several years ago.
According to these columns, Ellison was once a proponent of establishing a blacks-only nation carved out of the United States. In addition, he openly advocated for cash reparations paid from whites to blacks. In one of these columns, Ellison described the United States Constitution as the “best evidence of a white racist conspiracy to subjugate other peoples.”
Not only do these positions identify Ellison as someone with sympathetic leanings toward black supremacy movements, it identifies him as a devout progressive, one who believes in the false-narrative that the U.S. Constitution is a “flawed document” in need of revision.
Because of this devout dedication to the “fundamental transformation” tenets of progressivism, Ellison is now in the running for chairman of the Democrat National Committee. In fact, he has gleaned the support of Senators Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Harry Reid.
Many think that Ellison, an African-American Muslim, would make a powerful statement in leading the DNC, one that would trumpet their signature talking point of “diversity.” However, Ellison’s past statements make it clear he cares less about diversity and tolerance and more about oligarchic progressive supremacy.
In 2006, The Weekly Standard noted that Ellison, born a Catholic in Detroit, converted to Islam while in college. As a third-year student at the University of Minnesota Law School, he wrote two columns for the Minnesota Daily under the pen-name “Keith Hakim.”
In the first article, Ellison lauds Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan and defends the Nation of Islam, a staunchly Islamofascist organization. Farrakhan has called for the genocide of all white people.
In the second article, “Hakim” advocates for reparations for the slavery era in the United States. In that article, he demanded a separate homeland for black Americans.
Progressives want this man to lead the Democrat Party. He’s a racist Islamofascist who believes in segregation and the superiority of one race over all others. It’s jaw-dropping that rank-and-file Democrats – not progressives, but true Democrats – are not expunging progressives from their party over this.
The American people sent a clear message with this election. Excluding a few pockets in Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago, the American people have wholeheartedly rejected progressivism; we want no more to do with the divisive, destructive ideology.
If the Democrat Party is to survive, true Democrats have to recapture their party from the hostile takeover perpetrated by progressives in their party. If they do not, they will move so far to the left there will be no coming back.
