The Muslim Face of the New Democratic Party

keith-ellison-1

Blacks, women, Millennials – liberals in each sub-group are now led by an uncompromising cadre of the hard left, who through their “mass actions” are attempting to turn the country against Donald Trump and brand him an illegitimate president.

Most Americans are concerned about unvetted refugees from jihadi countries.  Those who are Democrats have no say in their party anymore.  Obama yanked the party hard left.  He personally championed the jihadi movement, be it by trying to install the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt or giving the pariah state Iran billions of dollars and the obsequious Iran deal.

Obama’s legacy: Hard-left Muslim-Americans are rising to positions of prominence in the Democrats’ grassroots organizations.  This alliance between Western socialists and Islamists dates back to the Cold War, but it has gained traction in America since 9/11.

One case, among countless others: The anti-Trump women’s march was co-led by an Islamist in a hijab.  It is well worth reading the front-page exposé on Linda Sarsour, because she is a leader of so many of the causes that Obama promoted as president: Occupy Wall St., BDS, Black Lives Matter, the Muslim Brotherhood.

After 9/11, Sarsour rose in power by promoting the jihadi fiction of “Islamophobia.”  The Democratic Party uses this accusation to fight Republican national security measures and accord itself unmerited moral superiority.

Sarsour’s Islamic group was a big success.  It prevented the New York Police Department from conducting surveillance of Muslim groups and mosques the police suspected of promoting terrorism.

For her work, Ms. Sarsour was honored by President Obama as a “White House Champion of Change” and was invited to the White House seven times.  She was a delegate to the Democrat National Convention.

Sarsour is a radical Palestinian who supports international terrorism and the destruction of Israel.  There are photos of her on the web flashing the ISIS sign.

Sarsour is, as the New York Times puts it, “deeply involved in the Black Lives Matter movement,” a movement founded by three self-identified Marxist revolutionaries who revere the convicted cop-killer and longtime Marxist fugitive Assata Shakur.

Sarsour supports sharia law in America.

You’ll know when you’re living under Sharia Law if suddenly all your loans & credit cards become interest free. Sound [sic] nice, doesn’t it?

There are outstanding Arab-American women fighting the jihadi threat here at home, having suffered firsthand from Muslim barbarism in their native countries.  Most prominent are Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Brigitte Gabriel.  President Obama and the Democrats consider them enemies.

Here is a tweet from Obama’s White House Champion to these moderate Muslim women:

Sarsour’s attack was especially cruel because in her memoir, Infidel: My Life, Ali describes how her grandmother, against her parents’ wishes, cut off her clitoris and sewed her vagina shut.  Somali culture requires that girls be maimed so that their vaginas appear smooth as the palm of your hand.  (This horror is being done, as you read this, here in the good old U.S. of A, by Somali and other African- and Arab-Americans.  Shame on us for not stopping it.)  Brigitte Gabriel is a Christian Lebanese, whose life story, told in Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America, made me think of an Anne Frank who survived.

Ali finally had an opportunity to respond [on Fox.] … [S]he slammed Sarsour’s “fake” feminism and asked why these women at the march haven’t activated to march against “mass rape,” attacks on religious minority Yazidi women, mass gendercide in China or for the victims of FGM [female genital mutilation], which she rightfully categorized as being part of the “real war on women.”

According to an American researcher in Cairo, Cheri Beren, there were 100Muslim Brotherhood front groups who took part in the Women’s March.

Cheri Berens describes the scene in a coffee shop in Cairo, staying up all night to watch Trump’s inauguration and the Democrats’ post-inauguration protest – as did thousands of Egyptians.  She writes a fascinating account on her blog:

The coffee shop roared loudly with cheers when Trump said “radical Islam will be eradicated from the planet”. We here in Egypt have experienced many terror attacks and all of us have experienced the death of a friend or family member … who fight ISIS[.]

On the third night … we sat in silence and horror[.] …

[W]e saw protesters smashing windows and torching cars.

Hushed murmuring began around me as every single Egyptian in the coffee shop could be heard saying the words: “Muslim Brotherhood”. …

Then on the TV we began to see video of the “Women’s March”.

The entire coffee shop gasped in disbelief at the vision of American women donning the headscarf. And worse, some of the headscarves were made of the American flag. …

The women in the coffee shop began to get visibly agitated. …

“The headscarf will take your rights!” one woman shouted at the TV.

Democrat champion Linda Sarsour is not a fluke.  She did not sneak into the White House or get placed on the podium of the Women’s March by mistake.  The Democratic Party rejects moderate Muslims and is happy to ally itself with Muslim-American radicals.

Calling President Trump, and all Republicans, racist and Islamophobic has become a central weapon for Democrats on campuses and among coastal and media elites.  This is the political context for the extraordinary – some would say extralegal – decision of two liberal West Coast courts to bar our president from regulating immigration to protect our national security.

The new head of the DNC is likely to be Keith Ellison, another anti-Semitic Muslim who supports cop-killers and is funded by Muslim Brotherhood groups.

Linda Sarsour is the face of Barack Obama’s new Democrats.  Expect to see more of her and others like her.  She is one of many.

Hamas BFF Keith Ellison: The Democrats Just Don’t Get It

keith ellison 1

You might think that, having just suffered a shellacking for the ages, the DNC would moderate its stance, sense the pulse of the American electorate, and move to the center.  No, no – not this hardy group of “progressive” ideologues.  With their ship floundering to the port side, they double down and shift more weight to their party’s left.

Welcome to Keith Ellison, considered to be the next chairman of the DNC and a man who epitomizes the slanders the far left falsely attribute to Steve Bannon and others in the Trump cabinet.

Since 2007, Ellison has been the U.S. representative from Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District.  Having taken his oath of office with one hand on the Koran, Ellison is the first Muslim to be elected to the U.S. Congress.  A feel-good story so far, but it doesn’t end here.  By word and deed, Ellison is a virulent anti-Semite.

Deep into his 30s, this man, poised to head the Democratic Party, was a spokesman for the Nation of Islam.  He publicly spewed anti-Semitism and later in life, as a congressional candidate, knowingly accepted $50,000 in campaign contributions given and raised by Islamic radicals who openly supported Islamic terrorism and were leaders of front groups for Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.  His controversial statements and actions date back to the ’90s, when he served as a local spokesman for Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam movement and raised eyebrows when he publicly claimed in 1995 that Farrakhan “is not an anti-Semite.”

In 1997, Joanne Jackson, executive director of the Minneapolis Initiative Against Racism (MIAR) – the acronym alone is a hint as to where his is going – said: “Jews are among the most racist white people.”  Ellison, at the time using his religious name, Mohammad, read a statement unequivocally supporting her on behalf of the The Minneapolis-St. Paul Study Group of the Nations of Islam: “We stand by Ms. Jackson.”

As a congressman in 2012, Ellison voted against Israel on every proposition, resolution, and bill.  Shy 11 other congressmen, no one has voted against Israel more than Ellison – five separate votes.

Despite this, Chuck Schumer, the new Senate minority leader and darling of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, is an ardent supporter of Ellison for the DNC chair.  Why would a supposed moderate’s moderate like Schumer support Ellison?  In an eye-opening interview this month, he said he’s backing the Minnesota congressman to lead the Democratic National Committee for a simple reason: Bernie Sanders likes him.  Sanders, ex-presidential candidate and a key liberal voice in the Senate, also earned a spot this past week on Schumer’s new 10-senator leadership team.

In the immortal words of former New York Knicks star Michael J. Richardson, for the Democrats, “the ship be sinking.”

In other words, Schumer, the supposed unflinching supporter of Israel, is corroborative with an unrepentant anti-Semite due to the approval of another who never misses an opportunity to disparage the Jewish State.  You might wonder whom this speaks most to: Ellison, Schumer, or Sanders?  But it gets better.

With a propensity of finding commonality with their enemies and not their friends, far too common among liberal Jews, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL)’s CEO, Jonathan Greenblatt, characterized Ellison as an “important ally in the fight against Anti-semitism” and “on record in support of Israel.”  I only hope marijuana is legal wherever Mr. Greenblatt lives.

This past summer, Ellison (aka Keith X. Ellison, aka Keith Hakim, aka Keith Ellison Muhammed) worked to insert anti-Israel positions and language into the 2016 Democratic national platform and to keep pro-Israel planks out.  He complained in a DemocracyNow! interview that the Israeli “occupation” was to blame for a “humanitarian crisis” and lack of sewage processing in Gaza.  This past June, following a trip to Hebron, he tweeted the following sign and stated:

I saw this as I walked down a street in Hebron. While window opens to street, no Palestinian can walk/drive on it

Unfortunately, this purportedly “important ally in the fight against Anti-semitism” fails to mention that if it were not for homicide bombers, blown up buses and restaurants and weddings, stabbings, and all other mayhem the Palestinians can think of, walls and fences wouldn’t be needed, and they could walk in peace down every street in Israel.

During the 2014 war with Hamas, Ellison was among eight representatives whovoted against funding the Iron Dome anti-missile defense system, which Israel desperately needed due to incessant and indiscriminate incoming rockets from Gaza.

Likewise, in 2015, Ellison co-authored and spearheaded a letter (and obtained signatures on the letter of 23 Democrat members of Congress) demanding that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress about the Iran deal be delayed until after the sanctions deadline, when the visit would have been useless.

This past month, the House of Representatives’ Ethics Committee opened an investigation into the soon to be chairman of the DNC after Ellison failed to disclose that the Muslim American Society – a group that Muslim Brotherhood members founded to be the “overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S.” – paid $13,350 for Ellison to visit Mecca, Saudi Arabia in 2008.

We could go on and on and on with this, but the wrap remains.  To even consider Keith Ellison to head the party of Truman, Stevenson, and Kennedy is an affront to those great men.  The once great Democratic Party that many of us grew up with in the ’50s and ’60s is long dead.  The highly patriotic party that truly represented the hardworking class of the United States has now morphed into a far-left consortium of perverted liberalism that denounces this country at every twist and turn but is happy to take advantage of its largess.

Keith Ellison, head of the DNC.  What will they think of next?

Fifty times more TV network coverage for Khizr Khan than Pat Smith

Hillary Clinton 11

Media bias has entered new territory in the United States with the nomination of Donald Trump. Something approaching  scared moral duty to defeat him permeates newsrooms across the country. So it is no surprise that news judgments are ridiculously skewed, to the point where comparisons with totalitarian regimes are becoming thinkable.

Consider the media treatment of two grieving parents of fallen warriors. Geoffrey Dickens of Newsbusters:

While all the grieving parents deserve sympathy, the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network evening and morning shows seemed to only care about the parents that showed up at the Democratic Convention. Khizr Khan and his wife Ghazla’s DNC appearance earned 55 minutes, 13 seconds of Big Three network coverage, nearly 50 times more than Pat Smith, whose RNC speech honoring her son earned just 70 seconds of airtime.

There is only one possible conclusion:

This is a textbook case of bias-by-agenda: One of these stories (the Khan story) matched the Democratic agenda, and the partisan media couldn’t push it hard enough. The other (the Smith story) reflected poorly on the Democratic nominee, so it was barely mentioned.

The public already understands the media are biased. But this pushes them to the level of propaganda organs
