The chequered history of a Muslim Congressman who became an vocal supporter of Communist street thugs.
Far-left, communist terrorist group ANTIFA are a threat to not only free speech but to the left itself. After all, liberals get the bullet too. Strangely, when this is pointed out to liberals they will resolutely defend ANTIFA, instead of themselves. They might say something along the lines of, they are a radical fringe group and have no political power so why are you worried? You are paranoid, if you're not a fascist you have nothing to hide.
Ironic, when the same people are so alert to oppression in other areas, and actively endorse the sport of punching so-called Nazis, because if you don't punch non-violent people, we are all going to be gassed under the New Reich. The Black Book of Communism should be required reading in schools. One hundred million dead at the hands of Communists is no laughing matter. Their sacrifice is trivialized by uneducated fools in the United States. Lest we forget.
Fortunately there are no ANTIFA members in positions of power within our political system -that we know of. There sure seem to be a few sympathizers though, and one in particular who has openly expressed this sentiment.
It would seem that Congressman Keith Ellison isn’t shy about showing the world what sort of ideals he aligns himself with. Anarcho-communists are just one of many anti-American groups we should be concerned about his affiliation with. People like Ellison used to be considered a fringe element within the Democrat camp. This has now changed. After becoming deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee in early 2017 and gaining the endorsement of Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren Harry Reid and even Chuck Schumer It would seem that Ellison’s ANTIFA ideals aren't quite as fringe as one might think.
Keith Ellison is not shy of his argent social progressivism in his role as vice-chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, founded in 1991 by Bernie Sanders. The Communist Party USA identified Progressive Caucus members as “allies in Congress.” Oh my.
Keith Ellison isn’t afraid of deploying ANTIFA tactics himself. Post 9/11 he criticized the Bush administration’s response to the September 11 attacks in the typical Liberal way, by comparing it to the event that led to Adolf Hitler's consolidation of power in Nazi Germany.
"It's almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that," he said. "After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it and it put the leader of that country in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted."
In early 2017 Ellison called for countrywide mass rallies in order to stop the democratically elected President Donald J Trump from doing the job he was elected to do.
“It’s time for people to get active, to get involved, to vote and to organize Trump must be stopped, and people power is what we have at our disposal to make him stop. We need mass rallies. We need them all over the country. We need them in Texas. We need them in D.C. We need them in Minnesota.”
As you can see, Mr Ellison would fit in well at an ANTIFA Starbucks meetup in any liberal city in America.
Ellison was the first Muslim to be elected to the U.S. Congress in 2007, having converted while attending Wayne State University in Detroit. He was sworn into office on a Quran- breaking the long-held and tradition of being sworn into office on the Holy Bible.
While attending the University of Minnesota Law School in 1990 Ellison wrote several articles under the name Keith E. Hakim supporting the racist ideas of Louis Farrakhan and Nation of Islam. The Nation of Islam is a group that even the arch-progressive Southern Poverty Law Centre has had to denounce as black supremacist and deeply anti-semitic. In one article Ellison demands whites pay reparations for slavery, and called for the creation of a segregated community for blacks. Though Ellison has denounced the group -in what I suspect was a move for political gain- he is still a practicing Muslim and Islamist advocate.
In an interview with Bill Maher Ellison talks about his Islamic beliefs. This is possibly one of the few times I have ever found myself agreeing with Bill.
In the video above, Ellison purposefully mis-quotes when he reads verse 5:32 from the Quran, stating:
“Anyone who takes a life it’s as if he kills the whole world, and anyone who saves a life it’s as if he saves the whole world”
Unlike most uninformed liberals who parrot this cherry-picked verse to virtue-signal how Islam is a Religion of Peace, Ellison knows this isn’t the full verse. He omits the rest of the verse with the full context in a very deceptive way.
Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one – it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors. (Quran 5:32)
And the following verse.
Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment, (Quran 5:33)
Oddly enough verse 5:23 of the Quran is plagiarized from the Jewish Babylonian Talmud.
“Therefore the man was created singly, to teach that he who destroys one soul of a human being, the Scripture considers him as if he should destroy a whole world, and him who saves one soul of Israel, the Scripture considers him as if he should save a whole world.” (Babylonian Talmud)
This Quran verse is one of the most misquoted texts of all time. Politicians, mainstream news outlets and celebrities bastardize it, claiming it’s proof Islam teaches against murder- when in fact the truth is the complete opposite. The scripture states that this is a decree for the Children of Israel (The Jews), not all mankind and then the following verse advocates that Muslims can murder anyone that does not submit to Islam. So very peaceful. I guess you have to read it in the original Arabic to see the real beauty.
Keith Ellison has shown himself to be deeply untrustworthy and deceptive. This is the kind of man the Democratic party thinks is suitable for deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee. A man who lies. A man who endorses radical terrorist groups. A man who has been part of an anti-semitic and black supremacist group. A man whose beliefs are so radical they align with both ANTIFA and Islam. Yet he has the cohones to point the finger at Americans and criticize them for wanting to make America great again.
Imagine the deputy chairman of the Republican national committee was associated with an anti-semitic, white supremacist group. Imagine the furore if he wrote about white segregated communities and advocated for the Alt-Right. All hell would break loose and every news station would be talking about it on repeat, for months, until the man was fired.
Why is that the Democrats get a pass for supporting Communist street thugs and Islamists?
It is high time Republicans stopped playing defence and went on the attack. It is time to stop trying to appease the unappeasable. You will always be a racist, a Nazi and a bigot to these people no matter how much you try to brown nose them. You cannot avoid earning the plethora of labels they will throw at you when you step out of line. It’s time to stop acting like liberals have the moral high ground- because the DNC does not. You do.
We reached out to Mr Ellison's representatives for comment, but have not received one at time of publishing. Republic Standard would love to hear his side of this story.
If the DNC believe it’s okay to elevate far left ANTIFA supporters like Keith Ellison to be prominent members in their party, then they have no moral high ground to stand on. The leftists preach about tolerance to all manner of behaviors but as Karl Popper said, there are some things a tolerant society must not tolerate. The intolerant ideals of Communism and Islam work daily to subvert our culture, to become an intolerant society.
