Potential Democrat National Committee Chairman, Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, has had some of his extremely racist views unearthed by columns he once wrote for the Minnesota Daily in the late 80’s and early 90’s.
Believe me, these are shocking.
The Daily Caller News Foundation reported:
According to columns written several years ago in the Minnesota Daily, obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller News Foundation, Ellison was once a proponent of a blacks-only nation carved out of America and cash reparations paid from whites to blacks. Ellison also called the U.S. Constitution the “best evidence of a white racist conspiracy to subjugate other peoples.”
Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, now in the running to be DNC Chair, has attracted the support of Sens. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Harry Reid. Many think that Ellison, an African-American Muslim, would make a powerful statement leading the DNC. Ellison’s past has gainedattention from the media, with Ellison being accused of anti-Semitism and ties to the Nation of Islam.
TheDCNF obtained scans of four columns written by “Hakim” as a law student. Ellison was around 26 years old at the time these columns were written and published.
Over four columns, “Hakim” advocates cash reparations paid from whites to blacks, calls the Constitution the “best evidence of a white racist conspiracy to subjugate other peoples,” and proposes making a separate country for black people.
In one of the articles, “Hakim” praised the Nation of Islam as uniquely equipped to handle the drug issue in the black community. The Southern Poverty Law Center, which the Left regularly likes to tout, has described the Nation of Islam’s views as a “bizarre theology of innate black superiority over whites.”
“Hakim” peddled the usual racist garbage that, because of slavery, white people are all bad and that black people can’t be racist. Another writer in one of the issues of the Minnesota Daily criticized “Hakim”:
“To hear Hakim blather, one might think that slavery was invented and employed solely by Western Europeans (ever heard of the Zulus?). One might think that blacks are a very unique group of humans in that they are incapable of practicing racism.”
In another article, “Hakim” made it clear that reparations are not enough to atone for slavery and that blacks need to be given their own, separate nation and cash for what was done to their ancestors. According to “Hakim,” the separate black nation would not require that all blacks move to it and added that, so long as they are “peaceful,” whites could stay. Gee, how thoughtful of the black nationalist…
According to “Hakim,” a “straight cash transfer” and a separate black nation, either within the United States or another “land base,” would be preferable to affirmative action, for all the injustices done to blacks, without any calculation of the many things gained by blacks in America; such is the typical revisionist history often practiced by racists and those who live with a mentality of entitlement.
Ellison’s background is fraught with racism, anti-Semitism, and disturbing connections to radical Islam, yet the Democrats are apparently actually considering him for head of the DNC.
The Democrats lost the election in part because Americans turned away from their incessant focus on identity politics, yet they might have someone like Ellison head up their party. Sounds like the definition of insanity to me…
