Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison is the next Democratic National Committee chairman, as reported by the The Daily Caller. He revealed that House Democrats will “vote no” for everything that comes their way in the years that follow. That’s no surprise!
Now experts are wondering whether Ellison can perform his function in the Congress and the Democratic Party. During the party meeting this Friday, Ellison said that he doesn’t mind working as a Democratic congressman.
“I’m in the process of deciding this issue of whether I can perform both roles,” Ellison. “All there is to do is to vote ‘no’,” said Ellison referring to his position in the House.
Ellison also said that “every other moment” he spends doing things other than “voting no” will contribute to his passion for the DNC.
The Minnesota Democrat wondered whether Ellison can do both jobs efficiently.
Ellison is know for his radical position.
In 2009, Ellison participated in a campaign for a Libyan-born Muslim who tried to gather Palestinians in order to embrace “the jihad way.”
Ellison also worked for American blacks in an effort to provide their own nation. According to him, the U.S. Constitution is the “best evidence of a white racist conspiracy to subjugate other peoples.”
In 2007, Ellison spoke to an atheist group. This wouldn’t be so bad if Ellison wasn’t comparing the September 11 attacks to the Reichstag fire in Germany. His speech made others think of the possible connection between George W. Bush and the terrorist attacks.
Believe it or not, Ellison defended Louis Farrakhan against the severe charges of anti-Semitism. And yes, he tried to cover up the whole thing.
The Anti-Defamation League considers Ellison underqualified for the DNC chair. Why would they think this way? Well, Ellison made some comments about Israel, and the ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt considered them “deeply disturbing and disqualifying.”
What do you think about Ellison’s views and actions? Is this the man who deserves the power he craves for? And the “vote no” thing? Will it really happen?
