Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Muslim Brotherhood) whines about “organized anti-Muslim industry in the United States”

Watch for him to burst into tears any minute: Ellison comments on the fact that some people noticed the reptilian nature of his tears at the King hearings. “Keith Ellison Shrugs Off Conservative Mockers,” by Evan McMorris-Santoro at TPM, March 17 (thanks to James):

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) isn’t sweating the mocking his emotional testimony before Rep. Peter King’s (R-NY) hearings on Muslim extremism last week generated from the right.

Asked by TPM Wednesday about the drubbing he’s received from conservative pundits since he teared up before King’s panel, Ellison basically said, what else is new?

“Well, you know, I don’t anticipate some people will appreciate everything that I say and stand for,” he said. “But I’ll say this: American people realize that when we say freedom and justice for all, that means all. You know, Muslims too.”

I’m all for that, of course. That’s why I oppose Sharia in the U.S., since it would institutionalize oppression of women and non-Muslims. Since Rep. Ellison is all about “freedom and justice for all,” I am confident that he is ready to endorse the anti-Sharia initiatives being considered now in various states. I look forward to your statement to that effect, Congressman.

Ellison said it’s open season on the right when it comes to Muslims.

“Open season”! Poor choice of words, whether Ellison or the journalistic tool Evan McMorris-Santoro is responsible. One need only look at people like Khalid Aldawsari, the would-be jihad mass murderer in Lubbock, Texas; Muhammad Hussain, the would-be jihad bomber in Baltimore; Mohamed Mohamud, the would-be jihad bomber in Portland; Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood jihad mass-murderer; Faisal Shahzad, the would-be Times Square jihad mass-murderer; Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, the Arkansas military recruiting station jihad murderer; Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the would-be Christmas airplane jihad bomber; and so many other jihad murderers and would-be murderers, and easily conclude that there is open season on non-Muslims. But open season on Muslims? That’s just Leftist/Islamic supremacist fantasy.

“Look there is an organized anti-Muslim industry in the United States,” he said. “It’s Pam Geller, it’s Robert Spencer, it’s Steve Emerson…it’s Frank Gaffney. They’re well-known entities.”

“They sell books doing this, they tell people they’re counter-terrorism experts, and you know,” Ellison added. “But what does that have to do with the whole economic discussion we’ve been having?”

Yeah, let’s have that economic discussion. Let’s have a discussion about the $13,350 Ellison accepted from the Muslim American Society to go on a pilgrimage to Mecca.

And what is the Muslim American Society? The Muslim Brotherhood. “In recent years, the U.S. Brotherhood operated under the name Muslim American Society, according to documents and interviews. One of the nation’s major Islamic groups, it was incorporated in Illinois in 1993 after a contentious debate among Brotherhood members.” — Chicago Tribune, 2004, via the Muslim Brotherhood’s English-language website, Ikhwanweb.

The Muslim Brothers “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.” — “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America,” by Mohamed Akram, May 19, 1991.

Imagine if a conservative Congressman had taken a trip that had been paid for by a Christian group that was, according to one of its own documents, dedicated to “eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house” so that Christian law would replace the U.S. Constitution. I expect we would hear more of an outcry than we are hearing about this.

    I’m convinced that Spencer, Emerson or Gaffney will eventually be asked to testify. Showing fear, of one’s adversaries will serve to becon and demand their testimony.

    Robert, Gaffney or Emerson will not be surprise witnesses to me. Bank on it.

  2. says

    Did Ellison really admit that “it’s open season ON the right when it comes to Muslims.”

    Or did he mean that its open season FOR the right…

    I think he may have spoken the truth by mistake.

    You know, last week I was watching Bill O’Reilly when Ellison was on and he told O’Reilly that he didn’t know who Frank Gaffney was. Wow. He sure is a fast learner.

    Keith, are you still a moslem? You’re a Catholic boy from Detroit. Go back to it and quit fooling around. God always forgives. Not so sure about this allah guy.

  5. says

    If anything, we need to be more organized. When Ellison is up for election again, there should be a massive campaign against him.

  6. says

    Here’s something Ellison and CAIR will not like because it exposes how a Moderate Muslim group has started to counter the reality in the USA that 80% of Musliom DON’T go into
    Mosques. This mean Hooper is being pretty rich to claim he speaks for 5 million muslims and that there are NO radical Whahhabi based Mosques promoting Shariah Law and the overthrow of the US gov for a caliphate.

    The original website comment is below to read it for yourself because it was CAIR’s own study that they are now trying to rebuke but the evidence shows that 4’000’000 muslims don’t like the segerated womens entrance or pryare area, 4’000’000 don’t like the radical imam’s rants and tirades or hate.
    Well Mr.Hooper….any comment for the 4 million Misunderstander that don’t embrace Shariah and the Saudi Whahhabism???

    *******************************************************

    The Progressive Muslim Union came about as a result of a CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) study. It’s a Muslim civil liberties organisation of America. Their research discovers that, this is right after 9/11, only 20% of American Muslims attend mosques or belonged to a mosque.

    So, we started realising that, “Hey, who’s representing the 80%?’ Are these 80% non-practising Muslims? We know for a fact that’s not the case. Most of them, according to the CAIR statistics, do not like the *SEGREGATION* of men and women, the *DISCRIMINATION* against women in the mosques. For example, women have to enter through the backdoor only or they’re not given proper prayer space. They’re like really dumped into the back rooms, the kitchen, no air, just dingy areas where they can’t even see the imam leading prayers. So, it’s really SECOND-CLASS status.

    A lot of American Muslims, I think, are very well read on their faith, unlike, I think, I dare say Malaysian Muslims. The majority of Muslims just follow the leader, no questions asked. In America, a lot of them actually read, and understand what their faith is really about, minus the cultural values.

    The full comment also points out the pakistani mind set for females to obey the Shariah from the old Country, this 2006 article is in the pre Honour-killing era we see now.
    Thank Gawd the silent honourbale good Muslims refuse to march lockstep with CAIR’s taqqiyah to deny the Shariah-complaint Mosques and Misogynistic Human Rights violation
    on US soil in US Mosques.
    If 80% of Muslim will NOT go to the existing Mosque in the USA for the overt negative-bias towards females and oppressive reigns by Imam’s, then this means that 100% of the Mosques are radical or pro-Shariah…so CAIR was right when they denied that 80% of Mosques were radical based or tied to the Muslim brotherhood.
    This explains the bogus “islamophobia” reports by Muslims to the Imam’s,the people in the Mosques think that Human Rights are anti-Muslim and offend Allah.
    ************************************************

    I used CAPS for the main issues opined by other Muslims and not Jihad Watch or Robert.

    So CAIR will have to answer this during a debate when their own study confirms that all the Mosques in the USA are frequented by only the 20% that agree to violated Human Rights for Females and expect Muslims to “Follow the leaders” and shut-up. This 20% pretty well matches the pro-Jihad/Shariah Muslim population outside the USA which is 99.999927% of the World’s Muslims.

  7. says

    Correction.

    My last statement was

    *This 20% pretty well matches the pro-Jihad/Shariah Muslim population outside the USA which is 99.999927% of the World’s Muslims.

    I meant to infer that the 20% in the uSA is close to the 20% among the 1.5 billion outside of the USA, not to imply the 99.999927% are all like the 20% in the USA.
    Just that we see many survey that up to 30% of some Muslim populations comdone or avidly endorse Armed-jaihd and suicide bombers.

    “Look there is an organized anti-Muslim industry in the United States,”

    Not long ago, Representative Ellison was deriding “islamophobia” as a “cottage industry”.
    I think he thought this was an insult, unaware that most major industries have started as cottage industries.

    Is this guy anti-Industry?

    “It’s Pam Geller, it’s Robert Spencer, it’s Steve Emerson…it’s Frank Gaffney. They’re well-known entities.”

    Hey, Keith, you forgot Edward Cline on Rule of Reason, and on Family Security Matters, and Capitalism Magazine. Not as well known, but just as hard-hitting and mocking. And, they’re not “entities,” as Muslims are. Show some respect (or is that a one-way street?). They’re individuals with minds and values and the courage to oppose without apology you and your taqiyya.

    There has always been something wrong with this “Islam the religion of peace,” thing. I mean the pieces to this puzzel do not fit to say the least. Rep. Ellison knows exactly what motivates him. It has nothing to do with peace as we understand it. It has more to do with submission than peace.

    Lets look back to the ’60’s for an answer to the ideology of Islams peace and another young man who misunderstood Islams peace.

    “Muhammad Ali (born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr.; January 17, 1942) is a former American boxer and three-time World Heavyweight Champion, who is widely considered one of the greatest heavyweight championship boxers. As an amateur, he won a gold medal in the light heavyweight division at the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome. After turning professional, he went on to become the first boxer to win the lineal heavyweight championship three times.

    Originally known as Cassius Clay, Ali changed his name after joining the Nation of Islam in 1964, subsequently converting to Islam in 1975 and more recently to Sufism.[when?] In 1967, Ali refused to be conscripted into the U.S. military, based on his religious beliefs and opposition to the Vietnam War. He was arrested and found guilty on draft evasion charges, stripped of his boxing title, and his boxing license was suspended. He was not imprisoned, but did not fight again for nearly four years while his appeal worked its way up to the U.S. Supreme Court, where it (the appeal) was successful”.

    There has always been a great deal of confusion understanding Islam and peace. It seems that sometimes it means one thing. But other times it means something else. At least, it is very confusing to most non-Muslims.

    So when Rep. Ellison speaks of peace I wonder which kind he is addressing..?

  11. says

    Mr.Ellison, you are part of the Honour-killing/caliphate Industry in the USA.

    Than god you don’t work in a Shelter for abuse women because you would accuse them of running a male-hate Industry .Then you would educate her about the Root-cause of the violence and insists they ask themselve “What it is they did to make the spouse or partner feel threatened that they had no choice but to beat the crap out of me?”.

    CAIR’s own Survey asserts that 4’000’000 muslims among the 5’000’000 in the USA do NOT go to Mosques and many refuse because of the Human Rights violation towards females and expectations by imam’s that Muslims must be automatons to blindly follow orders and embrace Shariah law.

    Ellison has already told Bill Maher that he was a failed catholic that rejected the teaching of jesus to love your enemies and foregive people,but then heard about a warrior/misogynist/pedophile/killer and it piqued his interest as a male and then embraced a new faith he is equally a failure at.
    i say this because he told Maher that the experts on the Quran should counter the Misunderstanders and show where they have misquoted the Quran.
    Translation:

    I’m too ignorant about the Quran and just follow orders until I learn to read Arabic and see a real Quran, but for now I’ll go on TV and defend what I have never read because if a hate-filled Holy Book and hate-filled Imam tells me islam=peace, then it must be true and there is a Islamophobe-Industry.
    Ellison should just shut-up because the Old Testament has a word of advise for his kind, it says that ” Even a fool can appear wise if they stay silent”
