Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison, the nations first Muslim congressman, has a history of making unsavory comments, but most recently, he revealed, “black people don’t have an obligation to obey the government,” because they “don’t live under a democracy.” In addition to that, he advises black people to form their own country and denounced the U.S. constitution as a conspiracy that white people use to subjugate people of other cultures. He has been quoted several times making anti-semetic remarks, has known associations with anti-semites and organizations tied with the Muslim Brotherhood.
With all this under his belt, he has the nerve to call for the impeachment of President Donald Trump, claiming that there is enough evidence against him to do it.
From Daily Caller:
Ellison made the comments at a 1992 protest after white police officers were acquitted in the beating of Rodney King. At least 63 people died in the racially charged riots following the verdict. Minnesota newspaper the Star Tribune quotes Ellison as telling a group of protesters in Minneapolis that “Black people do not live under a democracy.” “You don’t have an obligation to obey a government that considers you to be less than human,” Ellison said.
Ellison, the nation’s first Muslim congressman, has come under fire for his history of making racially inflammatory comments, as well as his past association with notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, whom Ellison has since renounced. Ellison once called for American blacks to have their own nation and called the U.S. Constitution “best evidence of a white racist conspiracy to subjugate other peoples.” While speaking at a 2010 fundraiser in front of a mostly Muslim audience, Ellison claimed that American Jews have been “mobilized” by Israel to “do its bidding in America.” Ellison was the subject of a House Ethics Committee investigation in 2009 after failing to disclose that an American Muslim organization with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood had paid $13,500 for him to take a pilgrimage to Mecca in 2008.
