Keith Ellison and the Nation of Islam

The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) is calling on seven Democratic members of Congress, including Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, to resign over ties to “known anti-Semite” Louis Farrakhan.
“Seven long-serving Democrats have close ties with Louis Farrakhan. Each of them should resign. They include former Nation of Islam employee, Congressman Keith Ellison, who is Deputy Chair of the DNC. Ellison has tried to excuse his 2013 meeting with Farrakhan, while ignoring his more recent meeting with the NOI leader in Farrakhan’s hotel room, in 2015.”
Ellison has long been plagued by his association with Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam including a decade-long involvement in the late 1980s to 1990s that included working with the organization for 18 months leading up to the 1995 Million Man March. In 2006, during his first run for Congress, Ellison attempted to sever ties with Farrakhan, saying he had “long distanced” himself from the Nation of Islam.
Ellison participated in a meeting with Farrakhan in 2013. Then, shortly after Ellison attempted to disassociate himself with Farrakhan during the race for DNC chair, Farrakhan said in an interview that he had met with Ellison in a hotel room the year prior. The continued interactions has caused many to question how distanced Ellison truly is from Farrakhan and his anti-Semitic views.
Farrakhan has long been known for contemptuous comments against the Jewish people. Just last week Farrakhan sparked controversy over remarks made at an event in Chicago at the end of February. Clips of Farrakhan’s speech were posted to his Twitter, including one that referred to Jews as the “enemy.”
“The FBI has been the worst enemy of Black advancement. The Jews have control over those agencies of government,” Farrakhan said in a video posted on Twitter.
“Anti-Semitism is unacceptable. Farrakhan is the moral equivalent of a leader of the KKK,” RJC wrote in a press release. “If it was discovered that members of Congress had met with the leader of the KKK, they would need to resign. In this case, for meeting with, and embracing, Louis Farrakhan, nothing short of resignation is acceptable from these seven Democrats.” Ellison has not responded to the calls for resignation.
Not only did the media cover up Obama's relationship with the Nation of Islam's Louis Farrakhan, they also covered up Keith Ellison Muhammed Hakim X's writings that blacks and Muslims in America should rise up and form their own country:
According to columns written several years ago in the Minnesota Daily, Ellison was 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.” No wonder Ellison is a fan of replacing the U.S. Constitution with Sharia Law.
Ellison was born Catholic in Detroit. He states that he converted to Islam as an undergraduate at Wayne State University. Around 1990, Ellison, then a University of Minnesota law student known as Keith E. Hakim, wrote several columns in the student newspaper. One column defended Farrakhan against charges of anti-Semitism; a second suggested the creation of a state for black residents. Ellison was around 26 years old at the time these columns were written and published. Later, Keith Hakim also referred to himself as Keith Muhammed Ellison X before he changed his name to Keith Ellison to run for office in Minnesota.
Over four columns, Keith 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. Read Ellison's own words:
“Racism means conspiracy to subjugate and actual subjugation. Whites have it written into their very Constitution that blacks shall be considered three-fifths of a person for purposes of taxation and representation of their white owners. Their constitution is the bedrock of American law; it’s the best evidence of a white racist conspiracy to subjugate other peoples.”
“Any person, black or white, who attempts to disrupt the white supremacist hierarchy will come under attack by the white supremacists and their trained stooges.”
“The news media prints only the most sensational bits and pieces, never the whole story about the Nation of Islam. This leaves people believing that the Nation of Islam is some kind of black Ku Klux Klan, and they immediately dismiss all of its laudable work."
“Affirmative action does not make up for past injustice. Since no one but the WASP elite really appreciates affirmative action, I have a challenge for all fair-minded middle- and working-class white people: Justly compensate black people for 250 years of slavery, 90 years of Jim Crow and 25 years of neo-Jim Crow. The settlement could be a straight cash transfer for all the black exploitation. This means just compensation for all the labor hours put in by the slaves and just compensation for all the intellectual and artistic property ripped off by all the Elvis Presleys and Pat Boones. It means compensation for all the money ripped off through sharecropping and just compensation owing to all the black athletes of yesterday, such as Jack Jefferson and Joe Louis. It means back payment of the ‘black tax,’ which is the price hike that ghetto merchants and pawnbrokers charge black consumers.”
“Finally, blacks would have the option of choosing their own land base or remaining in the United States. Since black people toiled most diligently in the southeastern section of the United States, this land, quite naturally, would be most suitable. That means Arkansas, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi. Blacks, of course, would not be compelled to move to the black state, and, of course, peaceful whites would not be compelled to move away. White people could righteously say they have ‘settled their debts with blacks.”
Still think Keith Ellison loves America and all Americans? White people, are you ready to hand over your paychecks and your land for reparations?
