Another DNC Party Leader With Radical Racist and Islamist Roots?

Make no mistake: Keith Ellison is a dangerous man.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz was ousted as chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee earlier this year after allegations surfaced that she rigged the system in favor of Hillary Clinton. But whatever level of corruption she brought to the job could pale in comparison to the trouble her replacement frontrunner would bring to the table.

As we recently reported, House Democrats, despite a disappointing performance on Nov. 8, appear unwilling to abandon their increasingly leftist views and, in fact, are doubling down: “Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, a radical black Muslim member of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, has launched a credible campaign to be the next DNC chair. Ellison launched his career as a member of the anti-Semitic Nation of Islam, and he’s a man who likened 9/11 to the Nazis’ Reichstag fire — in other words, an inside job meant to create a pretext for going after Muslims. And Democrats are considering putting him in charge of the party.”

Even by some Democrat standards, Ellison is radical (although he’s a natural extension of Obama’s radical roots). But a deeper look at his profile paints an even more alarming picture. According to The Washington Free Beacon, “The House Ethics Committee opened an investigation into Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) after he failed to disclose that a group founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood paid for him to make a pilgrimage to the Islamic holy site of Mecca in Saudi Arabia.”

The 2008 trip was paid for by the Muslim American Society, which the Beacon explains was “founded by Muslim Brotherhood members in 1993 to act as the ‘overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States,’ according to federal prosecutors in 2007.” Make no mistake: Ellison is a dangerous man. That Democrats are even considering him for a leadership role speaks volumes about where the party is and where it is going. And it’s not good. They evidently learned nothing on Election Day.
