Now that TWO disgraced leaders have stepped down from the DNC, they’re picking a new one. What’s wrong with this picture?
Remember Howard Dean? (Think ‘Dean Scream‘. Yeah, that’s him.) He used to hold that same job. And he wants to again.
This week, in a couple of different Canadian news outlets, he’s been denouncing Bannon as a NAZI. Not comparing him to a NAZI… CALLING him one.
Isn’t that called ‘libel’? They’re making outrageous claims against Bannon, calling him … in particular … anti-Semetic. The Jewish men who have worked for him find that accusation… shall we say… difficult to believe. Milo LOVES him. And even Ben Shapiro … who’s had his personal differences with him, has been forced to defend Bannon against these outrageous attacks.
But the fact that we’re suddenly talking about anti-Semitism gives us a chance to talk about a group that actually DOES embrace hatred toward Jews. And this group just happens to have ties to … wait for it… the guy most likely to lead the DNC.
Progressives are itching to vote in Keith Ellison, the first black Muslim elected to Congress. ‘Look how inclusive we are! This guy checks 2 of the identity boxes!’
Here’s the short viral video explaining the connection between Keith Ellison and ACTUAL anti-Semitism.

Besides the connections to Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas that are mentioned in the video, the Weekly Standard has a column on him, for which the phrase ‘He’s a bad hombre’ is the sub-head.
When I speak about Ellison in the Twin Cities, I give a talk titled “The Secret History of Keith Ellison.” The title is facetious. Ellison’s history only became “secret” when he ran for Congress in 2006 and bet his campaign on three lies about his involvement with the Nation of Islam. I recounted and recalled Ellison’s “secret history” in the WEEKLY STANDARD articles “Louis Farrakhan’s First Congressman” and “The Ellison Elision.”
Yet Ellison’s history as an active member and local leader of the Nation of Islam remains a deep secret to Ellison’s constituents in his district. He blatantly lied about it when he was running in the 2006 DFL primary. He suppressed it in his 2014 memoir, My Country, ‘Tis of Thee. Indeed, in his memoir he presented himself as a critic of Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam.
Speaking of Farrakhan, Ellison writes in his memoir: “He could only wax eloquent while scapegoating other groups.” Ellison writes of the Nation of Islam itself: “In the NOI, if you’re not angry in opposition to some group of people (whites, Jews, so-called ‘sellout’ blacks), you don’t have religion.”
He should know. He was speaking from his own personal experience in the cult. —Weekly Standard
Wow. Howard Dean. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. Donna Brazile. And now this guy.
Yikes! These people sure can pick ’em.
