Muslim Congressman Ellison as DNC Chief?

DNC Prepares To Elevate Muslim Congressman Ellison To Chief

If you thought the Democrats would respond to Donald Trump’s stunning victory in the 2016 presidential election by attempting to woo back some of the white blue-collar voters they lost over the last eight years, you’re sadly mistaken: they’ll be doubling down on the Obama coalition.

The proof: on Friday, support built dramatically among Democratic insiders like incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) as head of the Democratic National Committee.

Ellison is a black Muslim from Minnesota – not exactly a reflection of the crowd the Democrats lost in 2016. He’s also a radical leftist on economic policy, endorsed by socialist Senator Bernie Sanders. As Jack Heretik of Free Beacon points out, “He supported impeaching then-Vice President Dick Cheney, compared President George W. Bush to Hitler, and blamed Bush for the September 11 attacks.” He’s radically anti-Israel, too; he compared Israel to South African apartheid, and wanted Israel to grant concessions to the terrorist group Hamas. Ellison was linked to the anti-Semitic Nation of Islam, and as The Weekly Standard reports, “he himself mouthed those views.”
