Congressman Keith Ellison (D-Muslim Brotherhood) likens resistance to Islamic
supremacism to racism
$13,350 from the group that wants to destroy the West from within
In December 2008, when it was first revealed that Ellison's Hajj was paid for
with $13,350 from the Muslim American Society:
The Muslim Brotherhood "must understand that their work in America is a kind of
grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within
and "sabotaging" its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the
believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over
all other religions." -- "An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic
Goal for the Brotherhood in North America," by Mohamed Akram, May 19, 1991.
What does that have to do with Congressman Ellison? Everything. The Muslim
American Society paid for his Hajj. And what is the Muslim American Society? The
"In recent years, the U.S. Brotherhood operated under the name Muslim American
Society, according to documents and interviews. One of the nation's major
Islamic groups, it was incorporated in Illinois in 1993 after a contentious
debate among Brotherhood members." -- Chicago Tribune, 2004.
Imagine if a conservative Congressman had taken a trip that had been paid for by
a Christian group that was, according to one of its own documents, dedicated to
"eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and
'sabotaging' its miserable house" so that Christian law would replace
the U.S. Constitution. I expect we would hear more of an outcry than we ever
heard about Ellison's Brotherhood-funded hajj.
Yet I am pretty much the only one calling attention to Ellison's having taken
money from the Brotherhood. But also remember that the Muslim Brotherhood is a
pro-Sharia group -- i.e., it opposes the freedom of speech, the freedom of
conscience, and the equality of rights before the law of women with men and
non-Muslims with Muslims. I, am fighting to defend those rights against Islamic
supremacists who would chip away at them. So who is really fronting for "hate,"
Congressman -- you or I? I'd say you.
An aside: several people have written to me asking why I was so quiet during the
ABC "This Week" panel hosted by nakedly biased pseudo-journalist Christiane
Amanpour. In fact, I wasn't: they taped two hours and only broadcast one,
cutting out much of what I said. I also learned later that my microphone was
off, such that I could be heard commenting in the background, being picked up
faintly on other people's mics, but what I said was consequently too faint to be
heard on the show itself. Par for the course for the mainstream media.
Oddly enough, Ellison is unhappy about the ABC show, even though it was a patent
whitewash of the jihad and Islamic supremacism. "Should we fear Islam?," by
Congressman Keith Ellison in the Washington Post, October 7:
At a time when our nation is seeing a rise in intolerant behavior, crossing
every cultural line, whether based on race, religion or sexual orientation, we
seem simultaneously stuck with a national news media that is preoccupied with
conflict and controversy when we desperately need one that weighs facts and
reports fairly. A recent national news program reinforced these concerns. Let me
explain what I mean.
