Top Dems rally around radical Keith Ellison for DNC Chair

Top Dems rally around radical Keith Ellison for DNC Chair

The radical leftist fringe is now the mainstream of the Democratic Party.

The lesson Democrats are learning from the evisceration of the Democratic Party at the state level, the continuing loss of control of Congress, and the defeat in the presidential election is not that Democrats need to move back to the center.

No, it’s that Democrats need to move not just further to the left, but to the fringe left.

Several top Democrats, including Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Chuck Schumer, are backing Keith Ellison, Democratic Congressman from Minnesota, as the next DNC Chair. Daily Kos reports:

Keith Ellison is rapidly pulling in serious endorsements as the next DNC chair. The Minnesota Representative has already lined up support from Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, who said that Ellison would be “terrific.” Now Rep. Ellison also has Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer in his corner.

Schumer spoke with Ellison Thursday afternoon and “supports him for chair,” according to a source close to Schumer, who added: “Without a Democratic White House, Schumer’s view is the DNC is where grassroots organizing in sync with leg battles should be organized.” Schumer’s nod comes as others like former DNC Chair Howard Dean have launched their own campaigns to run the embattled organization. Ellison, co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, hasn’t officially thrown his hat in the ring, though he has said he’ll make an announcement on Monday.

In case you are not familiar with Ellison:

Ellison was the first Muslim elected to federal office when he won his seat in 2006. Ellison also has had ties with Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam.

Ellison repeatedly has been regarded as one of the most liberal members of Congress.

He supported impeaching then-Vice President Dick Cheney, compared President George W. Bush to Hitler, and blamed Bush for the September 11 attacks.

Ellison has promoted the false claim that Israel practices Apartheid:

Ellison was one of Bernie Sanders’ representatives on the Democratic Platform committee, where he joined with Israel-haters Cornel West and John Zogby in trying to move the party against Israel. That effort was blocked by Clinton supporters. While Ellison is not as crazy anti-Israel as West and Zogby, his elevation to DNC Chair would distance the party even further from the overwhelming support of the American people for Israel.

Power Line, based in Minnesota, has an extensive article archive on Ellison.

Ellison embarrassingly thought Trump was ‘Worst Republican Nominee Since George Wallace’ (Wallace, of course, was a Democrat and never was the nominee):

If Ellison is elected DNC, it would shift the party even further from the mainstream, Could The Left Stage a DNC Coup?:

In the wake of Hillary Clinton’s stunning loss this week, progressives are moving quickly to fill the power vacuum left in the Democratic Party and eyeing a takeover of the Democratic National Committee, with Rep. Keith Ellison gaining momentum as the left’s apparent candidate of choice to lead it.

The next chair of the DNC will play a key leadership role as the party builds itself back from defeat, and their election early next year will be a key test in the struggle for control of the party between the so-called establishment and a more populist wing that largely backed Bernie Sanders in the primary.

Howard Dean, who also is under consideration, recognizes the danger to the party from leaving behind the majority of Americans:

There was a time when Ellison was considered fringe even by leftist Democratic circles. No longer. The Democratic Party itself has become fringe outside the coasts.

Republicans should rejoice if Ellison gets the nod:


Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.


Let it be so!

I agree. Make it so. That will doom the party.

    THIS is much more than just a Minnesota Senator assuming the DNC chair. We’re talking about the formal announcement of the engagement for marriage between the Democrat party and the Muslim Brotherhood. Ellison (a longtime Muslim convert) has a strong relationship with CAIR and the MB. The bottomless pockets of the Middle East thugs will be at his disposal. This last election was just a skirmish, not the war.

Trump will serve 8 years with a DNC chair Ellison.

I don’t know.
If I were to describe in one sentence why Trump won the general ( aside from Michael Moore’s profound albeit profane observation ) election it would be this: the Democrats were able to install their establishment candidate the GOP were unable to install theirs.

A more liberal candidate now will probably hurt them short term. It might help them long term.

I don’t think that it was such a stunning defeat. If some polls said that Trump would win by 2 and others said that Hillary would win by 2, no one would be talking about the shambles the Dems are in right now.

They did pick up a Senate seat, though they had a lot of things going their way.

But as for the polls, remember that during the election I kept saying that we don’t know how accurate the polls are. They might be spot on, they might be way off. In ret4rospect I think what happened is early on in the general the pollsters were lying for Hillary ( like we found out they were doing during the primaries ). But as time went on they began to believe their own lies, reinforcing their bias and they began to produce bad polls.

Can anyone tell me what Keith Ellison will do to bring back the vote from the rust belt for the democratic party?

Guess they did not learn their lesson yet. If fact they are moving farther away from where they should be.

This does have a certain logic to it.

The Democrat Party members believe that they lost the election because they did not sufficiently turn out the Sanders voting block. The flaw is that they believe the Bernie-Bots didn’t turn out because they didn’t think Clinton was Progressive ~ENOUGH~. What they’re ignoring is that a lot of the Sanders supporters refused to support Clinton because of the primary shenanigans.

Putting an unapologetic leftist into the DNC Leadership is the Democrat Party mea culpa to say: “OK. We heard you.” to the Bernie-Bots, and pushing the adoption of a Marxist-Leninist agenda (which the Sanders supporters crave).

The first problem for them is that it WILL drive what’s left of the Union / Blue Collar / mid-level earning democrats from the party in favor of the younger university crowd. That will DECIMATE the party from an ‘income’ standpoint except for the “mega-donor” crowd.

The second problem is that the younger university crowd usually finds out the instant they get into the “real world” that their ideals about a socialist utopia forming if the “rich” just gave a little bit more actually applies to THEM. Now that they’re not spending someone else’s money, but are being relieved of their own money instead, they suddenly decide that supporting freeloaders while they’re working 80+ hour weeks to keep food in their own mouths is a bad plan.

Go ahead, DNC – keep digging that hole ~

you can’t get elected dogcatcher as a Dem in most red states. As a consequence, Dems will run as Republicans. Pushing the Dems farther left will only accelerate this. This will move Republicans left.

I prefer that the Dems give the Reps a run for the votes by moving right. Much better for the country.

“Having lost their way, they redouble their effort”. If this doesn’t speak volumes of the Left/Muslim Axis, then what does?

This comes under the heading of “Lets just effing that chicken!”
The Obama coalition of left wing groups or enviroweenies, BLM types, outright communists, cannot hold together. Only so much pandering can hold them together as a voting block. Dems left the working class blue collar voter behind for this coalition for Obama and it’s done nothing except get Obama in office and destroy the Democratic Party. So lets just double down on that, yeah that’s a good idea, had the entire reins of the DNC to the special snowflakes and watch the Democrats fall behind. They don’t have any ‘fresh blood’ to fill the ranks! The cobbled together groups can’t generate new party leaders because they don’t have anything as a cohesive base anymore to unite the average american voter. Sad really. Our American system works best with a push and pull, but the DNC tried to go for the entire bag and it now starting to backfire badly on them.

The Dems are heading for the deep end where they will drowned.

I wonder how the dems would handle the issue of a male entering a whatever gender restroom and watching a Muslim woman de-burka and pee. We will have to ask Keith.

This is when we find out if all the smart people have deserted the Democratic Party for the next 4 years.

Everyone knows to get out of a hole you use a bigger shovel.

Well, why not? The Democrat Party hasn’t represented this country’s interest since St. Franklin the Roosevelt. Putting Ellison in charge will guarantee a continued slide into the Socialist/Communist sphere. Who knows, maybe he will work hard to get a(nother) Muslim into the Oval Office.

To me this just PROVES that the REAL GOAL of the left is the COMPLETE DESTRUCTION of the Nation !!

It is the forever pendulum of American politics. When it swings as far left as it did over the past eight years, it comes back with greater speed and impetus and pushes further right than it would have.

The GOP has been pulled a couple degrees to the right, but the hyper-liberal leadership of the Democrat Party over the past eight years has fumbled its way out of a job. They cannot defend having cost their own party 99% of its political power in such a short time. They will be replaced in both personnel and approach. They’ll become more centrist and will rediscover the middle class working “little guy” they’ve always claimed to champion. They’ll still chase minorities, but they’ll attempt to at least look sane again.

“The bottom line is we’re not broke, there’s plenty of money, it’s just the government doesn’t have it,” Ellison continued,

“The government has a right, the government and the people of the United States have a right to run the programs of the United States. Health, welfare, housing – all these things.”

The DNC chair’s real job is to romance billionaire donors. Is Muslim Keith Ellison the right guy to go this?

A good choice.I’ve always respected Congressman Keith Ellison. Especially after the humiliation he gave that Shmendrik Dennis Prager.

In Vegas, this is known as doubling down on 16.

The Democratic Party, after the elections of Buraq Hussein Obama has been a wholly owned and operated subsidiary of CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood.
What better way to demonstrate that you’re the party of, by, and for Islam than by having Keith Ellison as your leader.
Sharia Law is coming America’s way

I say that if the opponent football team decides it will play without helmets or cups, so be it. Play ball!

Double down on that left wing fascism!
