Keith Ellison Revisited

with 8 comments

The nation’s first Muslim congressman Hakim Mohammad aka Keith Ellison (D-Minn) said Tuesday that he erred in comparing the Bush administration’s response to Sept. 11 to an event that led to Adolf Hitler’s consolidation of power in Nazi Germany.

“In hindsight, I wouldn’t have used that reference point,” said Ellison. “It was probably inappropriate to use that example, because it’s a unique historical event, without really any clear parallels.”

But like any politician in the midst of a non-apology he couldn’t resist the urge to lash out once again.

“I believe that they have exploited the fears that grew from 9/11, in order to pass legislation and even start wars they could have never gotten away with but for that tragedy.”

The Anti-Defamation League released a statement Tuesday calling on Ellison to apologize for his comments. The group’s national director, Abraham H. Foxman, called the comparison “outrageous and offensive to all Americans.”

“Whatever his views may be on the administration’s response to 9/11 and the conduct of the war on terrorism, likening it to Hitler’s rise to power and Nazism is odious and demeans the victims of 9/11 and the brave American men and women engaged in the war on terror,” Foxman said. “Furthermore, it demonstrates a profound lack of understanding about the horrors that Hitler and his Nazi regime perpetrated.”

So, no apology yet, but what does it matter? Ellison has proved that any words that flow from his lips will be just another half-truth or lie. Perhaps the people in Minnesota erred when they elected him.

  2. Hi MC

    So you think blog man is brainwashed? Wow, you’re good, and we haven’t even known each other that long.

    I want to thank you for your concern, but you don’t have to worry about blog man. In fact, just recently someone dropped by and gave it his best shot at brainwashing, but blog man was able to recognize it for what it was.

    If it helps Americans don’t want to kill Muslims, only the ones that want to kill them. It’s hard to get past that survival thing.

  3. Hi LC,

    What amazes me is how, given the amount of pork included in every budget, our only Muslim Congressman can enter the House chamber and still remain faithful to his religion.

  4. Hi Grit

    Perhaps he replaces the word pork with payoff and all is made better. Still it must be tough having to accept all those luxuries a congressman must endure for the sake of the mission.

  5. Hi LC,

    It’s a hard job, but, after all, someone has to do it 🙂

  6. Yeah, I think pork now has a more politically correct term called earmarking. There, now doesn’t that sound better?

    I couldn’t finish reading that broken English comment you have up there. I have a hard enough time understanding it when visiting with tech support on the phone. Therefore, I just can’t force myself to read it 😉

    Yeah, Ellison does make things interesting, but in the long run I wish the good people of Minnesota would think about making a better selection. This one is defective.

  8. Hi tammi

    I get the idea he thinks we watch too much TV, maybe he’s right.

    One point did stand out and that is the Saudi’s and the US have done a lot of business together and the benefit has been mutual. It’s a shame that Islam keeps getting in the way of a good business relationship by demanding the death of the customers.
