Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, the first Muslim in Congress, may be the next Democrat National Committee Chairman.
There’s just one, big problem, however, and that is how the media have refused to cover the dark past of Ellison — namely his ties to the Nation of Islam and radical Islam.
The liberal media have shied away from reporting on Ellison, likely because of his Muslim background. Even things such as his failure to pay $25,000 in income taxes, the failure to pay parking ticket fines, the suspension of his driver’s license numerous times, willful violations of Minnesota campaign finance law, etc., have received little coverage, according to The Weekly Standard via an article back in 2006.
The scary thing is that none of those things are even the worst of it …
Ellison had claimed, in a letter to the local chapter of the Jewish Community Relations Council during his bid for Congress, that his ties to the Nation of Islam spanned just 18 months around the time of the 1995 Million Man March. Public records show something different, however.
Instead of doing any digging, the media in the Minneapolis area, which Ellison is represents, simply took his word for it.
During his time as a third-year law student in 1989-1990, Ellison wrote two columns for the Minnesota Daily as “Keith Hakim.” In those columns, Hakim defended Nation of Islam spokesman Khalid Abdul Muhammad and wrote as an advocate of the National of Islam.
In the second column, he demanded reparations for slavery and even called for a separate optional homeland for American blacks.
Ellison has claimed that he did not know during his affiliation that the Nation of Islam was antisemitic. However, he stood on stage with Khalid Abdul Muhammad at a rally for the Million Man March in 1995. Muhammad said at the rally, “If words were swords, the chests of Jews, gays and whites would be pierced.”
In 1990, Ellison sponsored notorious radical Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael) to give a speech at the law school titled “Zionism: Imperialism, White Supremacy or Both?”
In his bid for Congress, Ellison claimed that he did not personally espouse antisemitic views, yet he ignored the Jewish law students who met with him to request that he not sponsor the speech and instead allowed Ture to spew his antisemitism.
This is just the tip of the iceberg, however, as Ellison’s background is fraught with disturbing information, such as his support of a gang leader, Sharif Willis, who was accused of the murder of a police officer. Although Willis was not charged with that crime due to “insufficient evidence,” he was later convicted of drug/gun crimes and sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Fast forward to Ellison’s initial bid for Congress and take a look at who flew out to Minneapolis to support him — the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Nihad Awad, who has expressed support for the radical Islamic terrorist organization Hamas.
Ellison’s past has been skimmed over because of political correctness. It’s bad enough that he occupies a U.S. Congress seat, but now he may also serve as head of the DNC. The fact that the Democrats would even consider someone with Ellison’s background to lead their party is a scary thought but, sadly, not surprising.
