Muslim Extremist Elected to Congress

To the delight of al-Reuters, moonbat-friendly Minnesota has elected the nation's first Muslim Congressman in Keith Ellison.

Ellison's platform centers on support for immediate unconditional surrender to our terrorist enemies in Iraq. What Reuters unsurprisingly doesn't get around to mentioning is that he received significant funding from CAIR, a front group for Hamas.

Only at the end of the article does Reuters quickly gloss over "Ellison's sloppy handling of his taxes and a slew of unpaid parking tickets, along with his one-time affiliation with the Nation of Islam."

Commenting on an article that blames Ellison's suspect record-keeping on his wife's multiple sclerosis, Power Line is a bit more forthcoming about the new Congressman's background:

No word on whether Mrs. Ellison and her multiple sclerosis accounted for Keith Ellison's involvement with the Nation of Islam extending far beyond the 18-month period in the mid-1990's to which Ellison has admitted, for the fact that he was a local leader and spokesman of the Nation of Islam, for the fact that Ellison defended the "truth" of an attack on Minneapolis Jews as "the most racist white people," for the fact that Ellison affiliated himself with convicted murderer and Vice Lords gang leader Sharif Willis until Willis was convicted and returned to prison for crimes involving "a senseless display of terrorist tactics" in 1995, for the fact that Ellison supported the Vice Lords gangbangers charged (and subsequently convicted) with the murder of Minneapolis police officer Jerry Haaf ("We don't get no justice, you don't get no peace"), for the fact that Ellison has attacked law enforcement authorities in outrageous terms, for the fact that Ellison has demanded that Symbionese Liberation Army terrorist Sara Jane Olson be freed, or for the fact that Ellison has expressed concern for the continuing freedom of convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur (on the lam in Havana and recently named to the FBI's most-wanted domestic terrorist list).

These are the sort of people we are inviting to run our country.

Keith Ellison: If you're a moonbat and you know it, clap your hands.

Heh. Load up the cartoons and get ready. The village idiots are about to parade back into town. Whatever you want to say about'em, it's always good for some comic relief, even if you're in the middle of a ... war. Whoops. Kinda forgot about that for a moment. Too bad Ellison's ilk hasn't.

What that ugly bump running from the top of his nose to just above his left eye - with a dent in his head at the top of the bump? Is his brain trying to escape?
