Suppose a major Republican – say, the Deputy Chair of the Republican National Committee – had a long time association with the head of a White Citizen Councils organization, which extended right into his time in congress.
Do you think our ever-vigilant media would have something to say about him? About Republicans for putting him in such a responsible position, and what it must say about Republicans in general?
With that in mind, please read the following segment from Peter Hasson’s article at dailycaller.com:
Democratic Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, has attended multiple meetings with Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan while in Congress, The Daily Caller has learned.
Ellison’s past ties to Farrakhan are well known: he admitted to The Washington Post during his first congressional campaign in 2006 that he worked with the Nation of Islam for approximately 18 months ahead of Farrakhan’s 1995 Million Man March. Since he ran for Congress, Ellison has repeatedly promised the public that he left Farrakhan in the past.
But Ellison’s associations with Farrakhan continued even as he served in Congress, The DC has found.
Ellison attended at least three meetings where Farrakhan was present — including a private visit to Farrakhan’s hotel room — according to photos and videos reviewed by The DC and Farrakhan’s own statements.
I assume you are aware that louis farrakhan is a virulently anti-White, anti-Semitic, “man” who runs a virulently anti-White, anti-Semitic organization.
Keith Ellison’s association to louis farrakhan is a long-time one. He has claimed in the past that he severed ties with farrakhan, but has never denounced him.
And, as this article makes clear, the claim that he severed those ties is an outright lie.
Now, where is the media firestorm over Keith Ellison? When do you suppose it will start?
Or is that asking too much of what now passes for mainstream media in this country?
For anyone who thinks I am being too harsh on media, I have a suggestion: wait a few days, see who and how many major media venues run with this story, and get back to me. Then we’ll talk.
