Keith Ellison: The Truth About His Background

Pinterest WhatsApp

Just who is Keith Ellison and what is his background? Remember, Keith Ellison is the person who said that the North Korean leader is better than President Trump.   Let us begin by showing his position. Keith Ellison is a Congressman from Minnesota and he is the first MUSLIM elected to Congress. Ellison is also supported whole-heartedly by one Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam, a group that is perhaps as Anti-United States as could possibly be. Ellison is also a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and  Congressional Black Caucusboth of which can be found to be, in many ways, against the very Freedom our nation wishes to keep. 

Ellison was born and raised as a Catholic in Detroit but when he was 19 attending Wayne State University, he switched over to Islam because he felt it, “might inform social change [and] justice in society.”   Take a look at just a small part of what Ellison has written under a different name.

The Washington Post also recently wrote about Ellison’s past columns, with an article published citing an Associated Press article about Ellison:

Around 1990, Ellison, then a University of Minnesota law student known as Keith E. Hakim, wrote several columns in the student newspaper that are getting a second look.

One column defended Farrakhan against charges of anti-Semitism; a second suggested the creation of a state for black residents. In 1995, Ellison helped organize a delegation to Farrakhan’s Million Man March in Washington.

It seems that Ellison, who used a different name when he did not want people to know what he really was, also wrote some very interesting ideas that would bankrupt the United States by giving money to blacks for a number of things that really does not matter. Take a look at them.

As a third-year law student in 1989-90, Ellison penned four columns for the Minnesota Daily under the name “Keith E. Hakim.”

The first column, published on November 1, 1989, is titled “African-Americans are best equipped for fighting drugs.”

The piece opens up with the sentence, “Years ago, it was slavery and, more recently, the Jim Crow system. But today it appears that the rationale for black people having ‘no rights which a white man is bound to respect’ is crime.”

In the column, Ellison writes that the black community does a better job keeping drugs off the streets than the police do. The Nation of Islam is specifically mentioned and praised for having the “most notable results” in fighting drugs.

Ellison writes, “In Minneapolis and across the country, this black crime thing manifests itself as the War on Drugs and as police brutality. The white perceptual link between the two is simple: Drugs are out of hand; in fact, America is at War Against Drugs.”

“Also, black criminals are out of hand. They rape; they form gangs; they drive down property values. When the black crime problem and the drug problem intersect, all African-Americans become drug suspects and any violent act is justified.”

A scan of the entire column can be viewed here.

This shows a man with ideas that would be called extreme racism if said by a white man, so why is it not the same stated of Ellison? Keith Ellison had taken the name of Keith Ellison Muhammad when he first ran unsuccessfully for public office in 1998.

Ellison first emerged as a candidate for public office in 1998, when he ran, unsuccessfully, for the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party nomination for state representative as “Keith Ellison-Muhammad.”

In an article on his candidacy that appeared in Insight News, Ellison was still defending Farrakhan: “Anticipating possible criticism for his NOI affiliation, Ellison-Muhammad says he is aware that not everyone appreciates what the Nation does and [he] feels there is a propaganda war being launched against its leader, Minister Louis Farrakhan.”

In 1998 as well, Ellison appeared at a public forum as a spokesman for NOI.

In February 2000 Ellison gave a speech at a fundraising event sponsored by the Minnesota chapter of theNational Lawyers Guild, on whose steering committee he previously had served. Also in attendance was the former Weather Underground leader Bernardine Dohrn.

The event was a fundraiser for onetime Symbionese Liberation Army terrorist Kathleen Soliah after her apprehension in St. Paul for the attempted murder of Los Angeles police officers in 1975.

Calling for Soliah’s release, Ellison referred to her as “basically … a black gang member” (though she is white) because she was purportedly a victim of government persecution.

He also described Soliah as a woman who had been “fighting for freedom in the ’60s and ’70s.” (Soliah subsequently pled guilty to charges in Los Angeles and to an additional murder charge in Sacramento.)

Further, Ellison spoke favorably of the high-profile murderers and leftist icons Mumia Abu Jamal, Assata Shakur, and Geronimo Pratt.

Ellison harbors some ideas that go against our nation and our Constitution, so being the person he is, it is understandable that he backs the Communist leader of North Korea over the Free United States. The Communist Party USA stated the following about Keith Ellison:

In August 2006 the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) said: “If Keith Ellison is elected in November to represent Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, he will bring to the U.S. House of Representatives a fresh progressive voice in tradition of Paul Wellstone.

He will also be the first African American congressman from Minnesota and the first Muslim in the U.S. Congress.”

In October 2006 Ellison keynoted a closed-door meeting of CAIR in Pembroke Pines, Florida.

Ellison won his congressional election on November 7, 2006, and has been re-elected every two years since then. At his 2006 victory party, a number of his supporters shouted “Allahu Akbar!”—the traditional battle cry of jihadists.

Later in November 2006, Ellison gave a speech titled “Imams and Politics” to the Fourth Annual Body Meeting of the North American Imams Federation (NAIF).

At that conference, he also participated in a “Community Night” event along with Imams Siraj Wahhaj and Omar Shahin.

Two days after the NAIF gathering, Shahin and five other conference attendees were removed from a US Airways flight when their suspicious behavior alarmed other passengers.

In the wake of the airline incident, Ellison asked to meet with executives of US Airways and the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) to discuss what had happened.

“While some constituents have understood the fears of the passenger who reported the clerics’ prayers as suspicious activity, many more have expressed shock and surprise at what they perceive as discrimination,” Ellison wrote in a letter to US Airways CEO Doug Parker and Jeff Hamiel, executive director of the MAC.

We can see Ellison’s association with the Communist Party USA through their statement above:

 “If Keith Ellison is elected in November to represent Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, he will bring to the U.S. House of Representatives a fresh progressive voice in tradition of Paul Wellstone.

He will also be the first African American congressman from Minnesota and the first Muslim in the U.S. Congress.”

But this is such a small part of what Keith Ellison really is.  Let us venture ahead to more recent times to see how Ellison has “progressed”.

In the spring of 2008, Ellison keynoted the Muslim American Society‘s Minnesota convention, appearing alongside Siraj Wahhaj.

In 2008 Ellison spoke at CAIR-Tampa’s sixth annual banquet, where he urged his listeners to support Sami al-Arian, the former University of South Florida professor who had confessed two years earlier to conspiring to supply goods and services to the terrorist group Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

In April 2008, Ellison  Resolution 1078 to the House Foreign Affairs Committee. This Resolution called for the implementation of a Global Marshall Plan that would “demonstrate the commitment of the United States to peace and prosperity,” a plan that “must operate within the ethical framework of generosity and magnanimity, not merely of instrumentality, and to be successful and must be perceived as more than a new attempt to extend influence into the world.” This plan mirrored the foreign-policy approach advocated by the Network of Spiritual Progressives.

In May 2008 in St. Louis, Ellison was a panelist at a town hall meeting held at the 37th International Convention of the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists, which was founded by the Communist Party USA.

Also in 2008, Ellison accepted $13,350 from the Muslim American Society (MAS) to finance his 16-day December pilgrimage to Mecca.

Ellison, then, had a close association to the Muslim people, but does that reflect his thoughts of what the United States is?

We need only to look and see that his associations to Muslim groups are not ones that loves the United States, but ones that hate the United States.

Ellison wrote very racist articles while finishing college and followed that up with working with, supporting, and giving speeches to what some could easily call our enemies.

Is this really an individual we should have in our Congress? But allow us to continue.

We can show that the Progressive Caucus and the Congressional Black Caucus can be directly linked or associated to the Communist Party USA or the Democratic Socialists of America; neither have the best ideas for the United States.

This is once again clearly shown in the following:

“In October 2009, the Socialist Party of America announced that at least 70 Congressional Democrats were members of its Caucus at that time—i.e., members of the Democratic Socialists of America.

Most of those individuals belonged to the Congressional Progressive Caucus and/or the Congressional Black Caucus.

Go to that list and you will find the majority of Congress people who complain about President Trump.

That list shows Keith Ellison as a proud member of the Democratic Socialists of America.

Ellison does not care for the people that produce the food he eats, nor for those who work hard to get what they want.

He is not what he pretends to be: he is Muslim, and his actions seem to indicate that he will support any Muslim views, including those that wish to destroy our United States.

But let us give a little bit more information that you can pass around to others so they will know that anything Keith Ellison states should not be accepted as being for the United States.

Below is more information about the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC):

As of March 2015, CPC consisted of 68 members of the House of Representatives—all of them leftist Democrats—and one U.S. Senator (Bernie Sanders, an Independent who caucused with the Democrats).

In early January 2017, 5 CPC members — Barbara LeeRaúl Grijalva, Katherine Clark, Jared Huffman and Luis Gutiérrez — announced that they intended to boycott the upcoming inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump.

For a list of noteworthy former members who left the Caucus prior to April 2011, click here.

Ellison, along with a number of people in both the Senate and Congress, are proud members of the Anti-United States groups such as but not limited to: Democratic Socialists of AmericaCongressional Black CaucusCommunist Party USA, and the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

These organizations all do not wish for the same ideology that the majority of United States Citizens seek or wish for. This has to be shown to as many as possible so we can get rid of those whom hate our nation and wish to destroy it from within.
