The Democratic Party continues to leap towards extremism

When political parties lose big they re-examine their leadership, direction, messaging, and weigh how to stop losing. The Democratic Party, has been losing, and losing big ever since the 2010 midterm elections. They have lost the House, the Senate, suffered massive losses in state legislatures across the nation, and Republicans own a significant majority of governorships. And, in 2016, the Democrats lost the biggest prize, the White House. So, now the Democrats are looking at how they got here. And, seemingly, they have decided to go even further leftwards rather than understanding that their ideals and their rhetoric have turned off most American voters.

We can argue about how many voters identify as Conservative, or Liberal, but one thing is clear, most of us are not Leftists, and, to be honest the Democratic Party is now a leftist party. Worse  yet for them, they have chosen to show Americans just how left their party has gone.

They have openly embraced and defended radical groups like Black Lives Matter and, too often the anti-police, and yes racist ideology behind BLM. They have also never condemned the violence of the numerous riots that BLM and its leadership has encouraged. Instead the Democrats have at best soft sold, and at worst advocated for such thuggery. Anyone pointing out that BLM, the entire movement is based on lies is castigated as racist

They have, for all intents and purposes, embraced a policy of destroying our borders and our national sovereignty. They have belittled as racist anyone who dares challenge such nonsense. Again, Americans have seen how anyone who wants even basic immigration laws enforced is labelled a hate monger. Even basic common sense ideas like not allowing massive numbers of unvetted refugees to enter America is attacked by Democrats.

The Democrats have ramped up their anti second amendment rhetoric to new levels. Continually targeting the basic right of self-defense in a nation founded upon such a right is a losing strategy. And doing so while more and more Americans are buying firearms, training with firearms, and legally carrying firearms is a recipe for electoral dysfunction. Demonizing gun owning Americans, and gun rights groups as dangerous while also blaming them for criminal behavior? The Democrats have actually gone around that bend. 

How about defending Planned Parenthood after that group was busted for engaging in selling baby parts? Did the Democrats look at those tapes, gasp, and condemn such barbarity? No, they attacked those that exposed the barbarism, and defended giving $500,000,000 in tax dollars to Planned Parenthood. And yes, they told anyone who opposed giving tax dollars to such a group that they were anti-woman.

The list goes on, and on, and on.

Forcing ObamaCare on the country in the most partisan matter that can be imagined. Now, they oppose any effort to even talk of fixing the law. 

The repeated smearing of anyone who opposes anything the Democrats call for. And not just smearing, but often smearing in the worst possible manner.

Since the election, that rhetoric has gone up even more. Look at how Hollywood Leftists have trashed Americans who voted for Trump. Look at the rhetoric and vitriol directed towards those people. They have been called stupid, racist, sexist, and many things not printable here. And now, the Democrats are on the verge of choosing a radical Leftist and anti-Semite to head the Democratic National Committee. Now even life long Democrats are saying enough is enough

There has been powerful push from the hard-left of the Democratic Party, led by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), to elect Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) chairman.  If he is elected, I will quit the party after 60 years of loyal association and voting.  I will become an independent, continuing to vote for the best candidates, most of whom, I assume, will still be Democrats.  But I will not contribute to the DNC or support it as an institution.

My loyalty to my country and my principles and my heritage exceeds any loyalty to my party.  I will urge other like-minded people — centrist liberals — to follow my lead and quit the Democratic Party if Ellison is elected chairman.  We will not be leaving the Democratic Party we have long supported.  The Democratic Party will be leaving us!

Let me explain the reasons for this difficult decision.

Ellison has a long history of sordid association with anti-Semitism.  He worked with and repeatedly defended one of a handful of the most notorious and public anti-Semites in our country:  The Reverend Louis Farrakhan.   And worked with Farrakhan at the very time this anti-Semite was publicly describing Judaism as a “gutter religion” and insisting that the Jews were a primary force in the African slave trade.

Ellison has publicly stated that he was unaware of Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism.  That is not a credible statement.  Everyone was aware of Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism.  Farrakhan did not try to hide it.  Indeed, he proclaimed it on every occasion.  Ellison is either lying or he willfully blinded himself to what was obvious to everyone else.  Neither of these qualities makes him suitable to be the next chairman of the DNC.

Yes, Ellison is about as radical as they come frankly. He vehemently opposes the right to keep and bear arms, even though he lies about that now

Of course, there is more about Ellison that should deeply trouble anyone, regardless of political affiliation. The Weekly Standard takes a look at Ellison

The case against Ellison that should concern all Americans is moral. To borrow a term, he is a bad hombre.

When I speak about Ellison in the Twin Cities, I give a talk titled “The Secret History of Keith Ellison.” The title is facetious. Ellison’s history only became “secret” when he ran for Congress in 2006 and bet his campaign on three lies about his involvement with the Nation of Islam. I recounted and recalled Ellison’s “secret history” in the WEEKLY STANDARD articles “Louis Farrakhan’s First Congressman” and “The Ellison Elision.”

Yet Ellison’s history as an active member and local leader of the Nation of Islam remains a deep secret to Ellison’s constituents in his district. He blatantly lied about it when he was running in the 2006 DFL primary. He suppressed it in his 2014 memoir, My Country, ‘Tis of Thee. Indeed, in his memoir he presented himself as a critic of Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam.

Go read the whole piece, and the other pieces linked there. They are eye openers. As are Ellison’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood

Ellison has associated with the Muslim American Society, a Virginia-based group founded by Muslim Brotherhood members in 1993 to act as the “overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States,” according to federal prosecutors in 2007. The United Arab Emirates recently added the group to a list of terrorist organizations.

In 2008, the society paid for Ellison, a practicing Muslim, to make a 16-day pilgrimage, known as the hajj, to Mecca. He was joined on the trip by Asad Zaman, who sits on the board of the Muslim American Society’s Minnesota chapter. Zaman has contributed thousands of dollars to Ellison’s congressional runs, both before and after the Mecca trip.

For those who are not aware of what the Muslim Brotherhood really is, consider this

The Chicago Tribune published a lengthy exposé in 2004 about how the Muslim Brotherhood had operated in the United States for decades with a goal of achieving Islamic rule in America. Brotherhood leaders voted in 1993 to create the Muslim American Society to serve as the group’s public face in the United States.

“When the leaders voted, it was decided that Brotherhood members would call themselves the Muslim American Society, or MAS, according to documents and interviews,” wrote the Tribune. “They agreed not to refer to themselves as the Brotherhood but to be more publicly active. They eventually created a Web site and for the first time invited the public to some conferences, which also were used to raise money.”

An internal memo instructed members how to deflect if asked about their ties to the Muslim Brotherhood or its support for terrorism.

“If asked, ‘Are you the Muslim Brothers?’ leaders should respond that they are an independent group called the Muslim American Society. ‘It is a self-explanatory name that does not need further explanation,'” wrote the Tribune. “And if the topic of terrorism were raised, leaders were told to say that they were against terrorism but that jihad was among a Muslim’s ‘divine legal rights’ to be used to defend himself and his people and to spread Islam.”

A former member of the society who quit due to its “anti-American sentiments and its support for violence in the Middle East” told the Tribune that its leaders had a plan to “convert Americans to Islam and elect like-minded Muslims to political office” in the United States.

“If the Brotherhood puts up somebody for an election, Muslims would vote for him not knowing he was with the Brotherhood,” the man said.

Again, go read it all, it is powerful. And after reading it Here is more on Ellison

 

Noted Communist Keith Ellison is hearing dog whistles again!

Oh good freaking grief, here he goes again!

Puzzled-black-dog2

Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison slammed Rudy Giuliani’s scathing comments about President Obama, accusing the former New York mayor of being “desperate.”

“I’ll put it like this: I believe he was dog whistling,” Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, said on CNN’s “New Day,” in reference to Giuliani’s recent criticisms of Obama.

“He was signaling that he’s not one of us, and that had to do with some factors that the former mayor should not be trying to play off of.”

Ellison suggested Giuliani was trying to raise long-disproved questions about Obama’s background, including, “Is he an American? Is he a Muslim? Is he a socialist? Is he this? Is he that,” before slamming Giuliani himself.

Oh will you shut the Hell up you carnival barking buffoon! Giuliani made his remarks, and I agree 110% with them because he spoke the truth! And it had zero to do with race, But, of course, Ellison knows damn well race had nothing to do with what the former New York Mayor said. It DID have everything to do with the behavior of this president towards this nation the last six years!

Noted Communist from Minnesota: I wish it was easier for us to steal elections

No, Rep. Keith Ellison (Extremist ) Minnesota did not say that recently, but, let’s face it that is what he really is saying here

(CNSNews.com) – Speaking at theU.S. Vote Foundation’s Voting and Elections Summit earlier this month, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) said “we need to make voting easier,” and “I’ve often asked myself why you should have to register to vote.”

In his remarks in the opening keynote address, Ellison said, “Now I also think we need to make voting easier. It should be easier. In other countries it’s easier. Why should voting be so difficult? Tuesday? Who thought that up? I mean the fact is, is that there’s wide variation in when people can vote. You can’t necessarily register to vote on Election Day. I’ve often asked myself why you should have to register to vote. Why shouldn’t it be automatic.”

But of course, and Ellison also objects to voter ID laws to vote, because honest elections are racist or something

Ellison also criticized conservatives for trying to restrict the right to vote through voter I.D. laws.

“Conservatives know that the data doesn’t support the need for these restrictive laws, and I remember way back as a Minnesota state legislator making the case that there’s no voter impersonation going on, why do we need those photo I.D. laws? Well, I was missing the point. The point was they wanted to restrict the right to vote,” he said.

See, no need to show ID, no need for that at all. Registration? BAH! Just let anyone vote that says they are eligible, I am sure there will be no problems with that right? Naw, of course not.

Keith Ellison Bottom Feeder

He is so sorry, I mean really sorry that you stupid Americans misunderstood Dear Leader when he told you a bald-faced lie over and again!

Despicable little man, what an absolute disgrace. I cannot fathom how he can look himself in the mirror frankly! It is one thing to disagree on policy, but to lie, knowing you are lying, knowing you are defending lies, and knowing you have pushed through a law that is HURTING PEOPLE? Sorry, but that is evil, and such a person should be thrown out of office.

 

Keith Ellison (Douche Nozzle) makes a complete ass of himself on Hannity

Donald Douglas calls this a meltdown. I would call it a Democrat showing his true colors

Ellison is a grade A tool, a bully, and a disgrace to this nation. watch his mannerisms during this debate, which is not a debate of course because Ellison simply rants like a thug. Ellison is a thug, watch Ellison’s face. He is acting like some punk trying to start a fight. That is what the Democratic party has become, a party of thugs.

 

Nancy Pelosi attended high-dollar fundraiser in May, and look who was there

Via The Daily Caller

Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi headlined a high-dollar fundraiser in May that was attended by U.S.-based Islamist groups and individuals linked by the U.S. government to the Hamas jihad group and to the Egypt-based Muslim Brotherhood movement.

The donors at the undisclosed May 16 event included Nihad Awad, the co-founder of the Council on American Islamic Relations, according to data provided by the nonpartisan Investigative Project on Terrorism.

The CAIR group was named an unindicted conspirator in a 2007 trial of a Hamas money-smuggling group.

The hosts of the event were DCCC chairman Rep. Steve Israel and two Muslim representatives, Rep. Keith Ellison and Rep. Andre Carson.

Ellison is the DCCC’s “national community outreach chair” and the co-chair of the House progressive caucus.

On Oct. 29, The Daily Caller asked Ellison’s press aide if the congressman would decline donations from Islamist groups. The aide replied that Ellison was not available to comment.

If you think the Democratic Party is working in America’s best interests, think again! Go read the rest, and pass this around. let everyone know just how low the Democrats are willing to go.

Actually Rep. Ellison, we think you are evil because you are an anti-American disgrace who pretends Radical Islam does not exist. Also your far-far-Left ideology does not endear you to anyone who loves America

 

OK, I think I straightened that up! Also, do I KNOW Ellison has tie to the MB? No. Would it surprise me if he did? No!

WASHINGTON — Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) laughed off claims by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) that he has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and said she makes such baseless accusations because, deep down, she thinks Muslims are “evil.”

Bachmann was already in hot water this week for saying Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, may be part of a Muslim Brotherhood conspiracy to infiltrate the U.S. government. Despite being criticized by leaders of her own party, Bachmann on Thursday said Ellison, one of two Muslims in Congress, also has connections to the hard-line Islamic group.

“He has a long record of being associated with [the Council on American–Islamic Relations] and with the Muslim Brotherhood,” Bachmann said during an interview on Glenn Beck’s radio show.

 

House Democrats refuse to stand their ground, postpone war on self-defense rights

Yesterday I wrote about an effort by House Democrats to overturn “stand your ground” laws that allow people to defend themselves. Today, the Democrats have decided not to pursue this vile end, for now anyway

(Washington Times) — Democrats backed off of their effort Tuesday to offer a “Trayvon amendment” to pressure states to drop their stand-your-ground laws after learning it was likely to be ruled out of order under the evening’s rules for debate on the House floor.

Rep. Keith Ellison, Minnesota Democrat, said he will still try to force a debate at a more “appropriate” time in the future, saying action is demanded by the case of Trayvon Martin, the Florida teenager who police said was shot dead in a street encounter with a neighborhood watch volunteer.

The Ellison amendment would have docked federal criminal justice grants to states that have stand-your-ground laws, which allow residents to use deadly force to respond to an attack without first having to retreat.

As I said, they will keep trying, they despise Individualism, and self-defense is a hallmark of individual liberty.

House Democrats: Self-Defense is BAD!

Liberals are always digging in the Pit of Moral Retardation

House Democrats said Tuesday they will offer an amendment to push to overturn stand-your-ground self-defense laws in states like Florida.

The amendment, which would withhold some grants from states that have such laws, will come as part of the House’s debate on the Commerce Department spending bill.

“‘Shoot-first’ laws have already cost too many lives. In Florida alone, deaths due to self-defense have tripled since the law was enacted. Federal money shouldn’t be spent supporting states with laws that endanger their own people,” said Reps. Raul Grijalva of Arizona and Keith Ellison of Minnesota, the two Democrats who are offering the legislation. “This is no different than withholding transportation funds from states that don’t enforce seat-belt laws.”

Got that? Killing someone who is attacking you, trying to kill you, is bad according to these jack wagons! Apparently the only “lives” endangered are those of murderous thugs. The most basic human right is that of self-defense, and the Democrats are attacking it. Understand this, if these weasels had their way, the people who defended themselves, RIGHTLY defended themselves would be criminals!

Rep. Keith Ellison(D) really hates incivility, unless he is calling Mitt Romney a heartless douchebag

Via The Blaze

Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison, who has repeatedly called for a civil political discourse, retweeted — then deleted — a message Wednesday calling Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney a “heartless douchebag.”

Take this for what it is worth. Another bitter, angry Leftist lashing out at anyone who dares hold a different view. But, there is something VERY hypocritical here. Ellison calls Romney “heartless” yet, Ellison openly embraces many Leftist ideals that have caused untold misery throughout the last 100 plus years.  Also consider Ellison’s ties to CAIR, and Hamas. And his other radical stands HMMMM. Talk about heartless, how about Ellison being gaga over the Nation of Islam?

In 1992, Ellison defended Sharif Willis—a previously convicted murderer—charged with helping a group of gangsters calling themselves the “Vice Lords” to kill a local cop named Jerry Haaf. What was Ellison’s argument for Wilis’s innocence? Ellison organized public protests against the Minneapolis police, claiming that the police department was waging “a campaign of slander,” in order to scare white people into having the city hire more police officers.

One year later, Ellison protested outside Willis’ trial, screaming, “we don’t get no justice, you don’t get no peace.”

Ellison may have gotten away with his butchering of the English language’s grammatical rules, but his client Willis did not get away with murder. He was sent to federal prison for 20 years, on several counts of gun- and drug-related charges.

Other cop-killers that Ellison has promoted and defended over the years includeMumia Abu Jamal and Assata Shakur.

Having failed to free Sharif Willis from the clutches of the white man’s “campaign of slander,” Ellison became involved with the Nation of Islam, promoting Louis Farrakhan’s “Million Man March” and appearing on stage for the “thundering, racist diatribe” stylings of Khalid Abdul Muhammad.

Ellison campaigned on behalf of Malcom X’s daughter, arguing publicly that Qubilah Shabazz was innocent of murder, and that the FBI was trying to kill Farrakhan.

Two years later, Ellison added the surname “Muhammed” to his repertoire, serving as a local Nation of Islam spokesman. During a brief controversy regarding Minnesota Initiative Against Racism official Joanne Jackson’s comment that “Jews are among the most racist white people [she] knew,” Ellison declared that “we stand by the truth contained in the remarks attributed to [Ms. Jackson], and by her right to express her views without sanction.”

Over the years, Ellison has held or appeared at fundraisers and speaking engagements for multiple organizations associated with Islamic extremists, including the Council for American-Islamic Relations, the Muslim American Society, theIslamic Circle of America, the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim Public Affairs Council, and so on.

Just as a sampler, it should be noted that the founders of CAIR, Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad, were former officers in the Islamic Association of Palestine, a group linked directly to terrorist group Hamas. Awad is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee; in 1998, Ahmad told a group of California Muslims that:

“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth.”

The Islamic Society of North America has been described as the “one of the chief conduits through which the radical Saudi form of Islam passes into the United States,” “[giving] Islamic militants a platform to incite violence and promote hatred.”

Now, I have some issues with Mitt Romney, but, I would bet my last dollar that you would never find a laundry list of associations with trash like the one Ellison has accumulated!. 

No, Rep. Ellison, people like YOU make us less safe

Can someone explain to me how this fool ever got elected to anything?

By Rep. Keith M. Ellison, CNN:

Recent news that the New York Police Department presented the film “The Third Jihad” to nearly 1,500 officers is only the latest example of anti-Muslim training materials being used in ways that harm our national security.

The film baselessly contends that “the true agenda of much of Islam in America” is to “infiltrate and dominate America,” smearing a religion that has been part of this country since its founding. Incidents like these sound the alarm on the need for greater transparency and oversight of counterterrorism training at all levels of government.

As anyone who pays attention realizes, that IS the goal of many Islamic leaders and many Muslims across the globe.

The NYPD’s use of “The Third Jihad” is disturbing because it leaves officers with the impression that American Muslims are the enemy, not an ally against terrorism. This notion hurts the ability of law enforcement to do its job. No one knows this better than the brave officers who have stood up to such bigotry – it was NYPD officers who objected to the screening of the film, just as it was FBI agents who recently objected to using equally harmful training materials at the bureau.

“The Third Jihad” was produced by the Clarion Fund, a group that lacks national security credentials but is flush with cash. Far-right wing donors gave the Clarion Fund $18 million between 2001 and 2009 to drive their political agenda through Islamophobic films. The group mailed its last film, “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West,” to 28 million swing state voters weeks before the 2008 election.

My only question is this. Is Ellison just a useful idiot for radical Islamists, or does he KNOW and support the radical’s agenda? Either way, Rep. Ellison is not fit to hold office.

I might have to do all my home improvement shopping at Lowes

Lowes chose to stop advertising on a reality show called “All-American Muslim” . Seems simple enough right? Lowes certainly has a right to  not  advertise on a show doesn’t it? Not according to Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN)

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) also said Lowe’s is choosing to disregard the First Amendment.

Hmmm, is he actually saying a company choosing NOT to advertise on a show violates the first amendment? Clearly Ellison has no grasp on what our Constitution says.

“Our nation’s history is full of examples demonstrating how we have repeatedly torn down false divisions hate groups choose to create,” Ellison said in a statement.”But the struggle against bigotry and hatred must continue so we never give in to intolerance like Lowe’s Corporation has done.”

Ellison isn’t the only politician speaking out against Lowe’s. A state senator from Southern California said Sunday he was considering calling for a boycott.

A boycott? Good Grief!, but wait, it gets WORSE, the Left shows its totalitarian streak as well.

Calling the Lowe’s decision “un-American” and “naked religious bigotry,” Sen. Ted Lieu, D-Torrance, told The Associated Press he would also consider legislative action if Lowe’s doesn’t apologize to Muslims and reinstate its ads. The senator sent a letter outlining his complaints to Lowe’s Chief Executive Officer Robert A. Niblock.

Legislative action? To what? Force a company to advertise where it does not wish to advertise? What is next? Will this Nanny Stater next seek a law that gives government control of where companies advertise? Stalin would be proud.

You want a politician who will tell it to you straight? With no BS? Two words! HERMAN CAIN!

Via Hot Air I have long-held that the Left wants to destroy this nation, to reform it into some Marxist Utopia! Rep. Keith Ellison, a Muslim, and a Marxist, makes that VERY CLEAR in this clip. He wants American sovereignty eradicated, and actually loathes our military and suggests that it is not important to national security

If I called Rep. Keith Ellison a Communist would you hold it against me?

Folks, I am aware that there are those “Conservatives” out there, like Michael Medved, for example, who cringe when anyone calls a Democrat a Communist, Marxist, Socialist, Statist, etc. But, read this story from Weasel Zippers and tell me, what would you call Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison?

St. Paul, Minn. — Minnesota 5th District Congressman Keith Ellison said Thursday that Democratic lawmakers “need to create a real crisis” to force Republicans to renegotiate the tax cut compromise.

House Democrats voted Thursday to reject the tax cut deal between the White House and Congressional Republicans.

The compromise would extend Bush-era tax cuts for all Americans, including the wealthy. It also would renew benefits for the long-term unemployed, a measure President Obama had pushed for to prevent about 2 million Americans from losing benefits in the coming weeks. Republicans had opposed extending unemployment benefits.

Ellison, who was recently elected co-chair of the Progressive caucus in the House, voted against the compromise.

“I think that we need to create a real crisis here so that the Republicans will have to answer for denying Americans unemployment benefits on the eve of the Christmas holiday,” Ellison said. “We let them off the hook, in my opinion.”

Ellison said Democrats should have negotiated more aggressively to protect the interests of middle class and low income Americans, but he defended Obama’s effort to reach a compromise.

“I think (Republican lawmakers) exploited the president’s compassion for people who are facing a very grim holiday with no unemployment insurance extension,” Ellison said, “but I think that we should have bargained harder because what we’re doing is we’re going to fundamentally shift the income spread in this country.”

As disturbing as the “let’s create a crisis” part of his rant is,  focus on that last part I highlighted in red, yes, RED as in COMMIE! The redistribution of wealth is the cornerstone of Marxism, and the Democratic Party is increasingly focused on redistributing wealth! Again, let me ask, if Ellison is not a Communist, then what is he?
