Is Louis Farrakhan running the Democrat party through Keith Ellison?

Published

Following the 2016 election, Democrats went right to work on re-creating the party. While you would think they would take this opportunity to move the party away from the extreme left-wing ideology that had cost them the election, Democrats instead moved the party even further left.

In their search for new leadership, Democrats selected Obama’s former Secretary of Labor, Tom Perez, to be the new Chair of the Democratic National Committee, while choosing Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) as Deputy Chair.

Ellison’s rise to this powerful position was viewed by politically correct Democrats—but I repeat myself—as validation of Ellison’s achievement of becoming the first Muslim ever elected to Congress.

But could there be another reason for Ellison’s success?

Before being elected to represent Minnesota’s Fifth Congressional District, Ellison was affiliated with the anti-Semitic and anti-American Nation of Islam. It was with this organization that Ellison developed close associations with Louis Farrakhan and Khalid Abdul Muhammad—both of whom have long-established histories of promoting violence and murder against whites and Jews.

While Ellison made efforts to distance himself from Farrakhan during his campaign for Congress, his behavior since becoming Deputy Chair of the DNC would not only indicate that he’s not only still involved with the Nation of Islam, but that Farrakhan might still be behind Ellison’s success.

In a recent speech loaded with anti-Semitic and racist rhetoric, Farrakhan defended Ellison’s perceived betrayal to the Nation of Islam. Telling those in attendance that he considered Ellison a “beautiful brother,” Farrakhan chastised anyone who attempted to attack the Minnesota congressman.

“Let me tell you something. When you want something in this world, the Jew holds the door. You will turn on your brother for some advantage in their world.

“I don’t want you attacking him, because you ain’t so strong yourself. If you want something from the white man, and you have to denounce me, how will you act when your trial comes?”

Talk about a Messiah complex.

Farrakhan’s defense of Ellison are right in line with the teachings of the Koran where it states that Muslims can lie to unbelievers as a matter of religious policy. In other words, Ellison’s “lie” about severing ties with Farrakhan is permitted if it can be used to advance the cause—a cause Ellison is still actively involved with.

Ellison’s pro-Nation of Islam persona has been in the news a lot lately. In January he endorsed a book that promotes the ideology of ANTIFA—a group recognized by the DHS and FBI as a domestic terrorist group. The book calls for physical violence against ANTIFA’s opponents as a “vital sliver of anti-fascist activity.”

Over the past weekend, Ellison was the keynote speaker for an annual gala at the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic relations (CAIR), a group with ties to radical Islamic terror. He and Farrakhan also recently attended a private dinner hosted by the Iranian government.

By the way . . . Ellison has been an advocate for the repeal of the Second Amendment, a frightening little tidbit of information considering the current anti-gun hysteria coming from the White House.

When you consider the capitulation of Trump and the GOP on priorities considered important to Democrats, the ideology of Ellison and Farrakhan could be advanced if Congress flips in 2018. One more reason that true conservatism is the only hope for America.

    When BHO was elected the second time I thought the Dems were on the cusp of inexcusable extremism. Only the post-Obama unraveling of his tenure will prove that – as I am sure it will.

    This step is one step too far. I will not support any party or candidate that infuses hate on any other race or religion. If I had done the opposite to the Muslims that he did with the Jews, there would be all kinds of reaction.

    I won’t take the double standard. These two guys need to be removed from politics.

    If true and it gets out, the dumbacrats will never see the light if day, as far as controlling anything in DC.

      Chaz – You might be right, but the danger is that with the GOP and Trump caving to the Democrats like they are, Dems might have more power than you think. And if that power is influenced by the likes of Farrakhan, the consequences could be devastating.

    Barack H. Obama was also a personal friend and confidant of Farrakhan before he was elected to the Senate. Obama’s flirtation with Islam, while he occupied the Oval Office, was not just a fluke policy.

Cartoon: Is that another huge immigration caravan?

Cartoon Is that another huge immigration caravan

The 2016 GOP field seemed like a clown car routine compared to what was essentially five legitimate Democratic candidates. Whether they simply feared Hillary Clinton or didn’t want to take their shot following President Obama, many Democrats who were considered potentially serious candidates didn’t run.

That’s not the case for 2020. We may end up with more Democrats in the running than we had Republicans in 2016.

Cartoonist Michael Ramirez captured the growing group perfectly:

It’s certainly starting to look like a migrant caravan forming. Oh, wait. Those are actually American citizens.

The Onion’s take on Kirsten Gillibrand is hilarious (and not completely satirical)

The Onions take on Kirsten Gillibrand is hilarious and oddly not satyrical

The Onion has built a reputation of lambasting everything in their path with some of the sharpest satire on the internet. Every now and then, they put out articles and videos that hit close to home.

Other times, they nail it. Such is the case with their 5 things to know about Kirsten Gillibrand.

The New York Democratic Senator is running for President. Judging by early poll numbers and general sentiment from many in the party, it’s very unlikely she’ll get the nomination. It’s a shame. She would have been very easy to beat.

How ‘Progressives’ are a small but vocal political minority

How Progressives are a small but vocal political minority

The data shows that most people are in the rational majority while the Left is a small but vocal minority.

A recent video from Daisy Cousens makes the very important point that far-Left ‘progressives’ are an extremely vocal minority that dominates the media, culture and government indoctrination centres. Even though they are only 8% of the population, they take on the false pretense of representing everyone else.

Equally important is the fact that the data from the Hidden Tribes Study shows that the people trying to conserve Liberty on the Right have a lot more in common with the exhausted middle. This majority on one side of the issues, while the small minority of the far-Left on the other. As she points out, this is not exactly a ringing endorsement of the national socialist Utopia the Left would like to force on the rest of us.

This is a short description of the 7 groups identified in the study:

Progressive Activists (8 percent of the population) are deeply concerned with issues concerning equity, fairness, and America’s direction today. They tend to be more secular, cosmopolitan, and highly engaged with social media.

Traditional Liberals (11 percent of the population) tend to be cautious, rational, and idealistic. They value tolerance and compromise. They place great faith in institutions.

Passive Liberals (15 percent of the population) tend to feel isolated from their communities. They are insecure in their beliefs and try to avoid political conversations. They have a fatalistic view of politics and feel that the circumstances of their lives are beyond their control.

The Politically Disengaged (26 percent of the population) are untrusting, suspicious about external threats, conspiratorially minded, and pessimistic about progress. They tend to be patriotic yet detached from politics.

Moderates (15 percent of the population) are engaged in their communities, well informed, and civic-minded. Their faith is often an important part of their lives. They shy away from extremism of any sort.

Traditional Conservatives (19 percent of the population) tend to be religious, patriotic, and highly moralistic. They believe deeply in personal responsibility and self-reliance.

Devoted Conservatives (6 percent of the population) are deeply engaged with politics and hold strident, uncompromising views. They feel that America is embattled, and they perceive themselves as the last defenders of traditional values that are under threat.

What was truly interesting was that the nation’s Socialists on the far-Left have their own set of priorities, that just happen to centre around control of others:

The polarization of opinion between the opposing ends of the spectrum is very clear from the issues that different groups prioritize:

After the issue of poor leadership, Progressive Activists rank climate change (47%) and economic inequality (42%) next, both issues that rank high on the liberal agenda. These are both considerably higher than the average (18% and 12%, respectively).

While the majority Conservatives, Moderates and Liberals have their own priorities. They don’t explain how someone favourable to individual rights and freedoms would naturally buy into the strict controls on Liberty that go along with the authoritarian Left’s climate change agenda. Or that the forced wealth redistribution that would have to be a part of Leftists plans to address the economic inequality would square with individual Liberty.

It’s also important to emphasis this statement from the study:

The Politically Disengaged group resemble the Conservatives in their focus on jobs (56%), immigration (60%) and terrorism (59%).

[Our emphasis]

This is how we are in the majority, the Politically Disengaged resembling Conservatives on many important issues.

A very vocal minority is still a minority

While the majority of the country may quibble over some issues, they are still supporters of Liberty. The far-Left, socialist minority is in a world of it’s own, working actively against our rights and freedoms while hiding behind the Liberal label. Please take note of this when considering those who like to throw Liberals into the Leftist camp, incongruously conflating both sides as the same.

The Takeaway

Most people want to be free from the control of others. Most people want to be able to defend themselves and speak freely without constraint. Most people want to keep their earnings and property. This is the rational and largely silent majority that would just like to live their lives in peace.

Contrast this with the far-Left minority that preaches collectivism and control. People who openly want to banish what they deem to be ‘Hate- speech,’ ‘Assault weapons,’ the presumption of innocence and due process. It’s a small group obsessed with political power and denigrating freedom with far too many false labels.
