U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison has said some crazy things.
Perhaps one of the most ludicrous comments the Minnesota Democrat has ever made came from a protest in 1992, when Ellison, now the front-running candidate for Democrat National Committee chairman, said that blacks don’t have an obligation to obey the government because they don’t live in a democracy.
He reportedly made the remarks while protesting a jury’s acquittal of a group of Los Angeles police officers in the video-recorded beating of motorist Rodney King. The Washington Times reported that he told the Minnesota Star Tribune, “Black people do not live under democracy. You don’t have an obligation to obey a government that considers you to be less human.”
Wow. That’s an incredible statement about the government, and it says a lot about Ellison.
This wasn’t the only time Ellison, who converted to Islam when he was a student at Wayne State University, has made radical remarks.
As a student at the University of Minnesota Law School, Ellison wrote a column for the student newspaper, the Minnesota Daily, suggesting that blacks should have their own nation, which could be built from cash reparations paid to blacks from whites. He also claimed that the Constitution was the “best evidence of a white racist conspiracy to subjugate other peoples.”
In 2007, he seemingly compared President George W. Bush to Adolf Hitler and suggested that the 43rd president might have even been responsible for the 9/11 attacks.
“It’s almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that,” Ellison said, according to reports at the time.
“After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it, and it put the leader (Hitler) of that country in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted,” Ellison said, according to the U.K. Telegraph.
It’a amazing that someone with opinions like this could even be considered for chair of the DNC.
Ellison’s radical ideas would not only fracture the Democrat Party (which, actually, we’re probably OK with), but they would also echo former President Barack Obama’s racial agenda, which would divide the country even more (which we’re not).
