Keith Ellison Dodges Question About Visiting Farrakhan Hotel Room

Keith Ellison Dodges Question About Visiting Farrakhan Hotel Room

“My political opponents keep pushing this out there in order to try to smear and distract”

Congressman Keith Ellison of Minnesota has a long and well documented relationship with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. He disavowed him when he ran for congress but connections keep dogging him.

Professor Jacobson recently wrote a comprehensive post about Ellison’s ties to Farrakhan, including recent allegations that Ellison met with Farrakhan at his hotel as recently as 2013, a claim he denied.

Ellison was recently asked about this on CNN but denied it again.

Peter Hasson writes at the Daily Caller:

Ellison Again Refuses To Deny Visiting Farrakhan At His Hotel Room [VIDEO]

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison again refused on Thursday to deny that he met Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan in recent years, choosing instead to blame a “smear” campaign for new questions about his ties to the hate group leader…

CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer noted Ellison’s meetings with Farrakhan in an interview on Thursday and asked him what his relationship with the hate group leader is. Ellison, also the deputy DNC chair, insisted that he has no current relationship with Farrakhan but would not deny privately visiting Farrakhan in his hotel room and offered no explanation for the meeting.

“My political opponents keep pushing this out there in order to try to smear and distract from the key issues, but there’s no relationship, I mean, look, my — I have a clear record. I have always fought for equal rights for all people. I will continue to do so. I’ve always denounced and been a fierce opponent of anti-Semitism from whatever source. I’ll continue to do so, but in this political environment, Wolf, you can expect people to try to say anything they want to try to distract from the core issues,” Ellison said, before pivoting and discussing the “core issues” unrelated to the question at hand.

Keith Ellison can’t shake questions on 2013 dinner meeting that Louis Farrakhan also attended

Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., admitted this week that he attended a 2013 dinner that also was attended by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who has a history of making anti-Semitic remarks.

Ellison acknowledged in a statement that he attended a 2013 dinner meeting with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in New York to talk about negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Farrakhan attended that same dinner.

Ellison, who is deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, said the meeting was among nearly 50 American Muslim leaders.

“This was not a private dinner, I didn’t know in advance who else would be there, and my decision to attend was not an endorsement of the political views of other attendees,” Ellison said in a statement.

If Louis Farrakhan and Barrack Obama had a baby together….
It’d be Keith Ellison, the Minnesota Congress Swamp Critter!

On the down low?

You have to wonder why being associated with Farrakhan would be considered a smear?

Is he saying that anyone being associated with Farrakhan are being associated with someone that shows them in a negative light?

He obviously believes that’s true about the accusations towards him, do they also apply to Obama? And why haven’t we heard why it would be a smear and why hasn’t Obama denounced him also?

Does Keith denounce Farrakhan and his blatant anti americanism and anti semitism?

He is playing by the same playbook as Barack Obama.

Worked for him………………………….

Would be “Breaking” if the FAKE MEMO for the FAKE MEDIA by Adam Head Full of Schiff were anything but Adam’s Belly Lint!!!!!!

Obviously, Keith Ellison will not be granted the same blind eye courtesy extended to B.H. Obama during the previous 12 years.

Sounds like somebody knows there’s video.

“I have always fought for equal rights for all people”

I have no doubt by this he means “equal rights in accord with the Islamic Declaration of Human Rights”. I frequently see this kind of dissimulation from Muslims.

Frightening, the state of our country, when the likes of ellison holds high office, even after the likes of obama has.

If President Trump went to the hotel room of David Duke for a private meeting, would he be allowed to just dismiss the meeting as not important. David Duke and Louis Farrakhan are on opposite sides of the hate spectrum but equally vile. This is who he truly is and he is being allowed to hide it.
