Keith Ellison, Farrakhan groupie and go-to Congressman for anti-Israel activists, elected Minnesota AG
And also accused domestic abuser, to be chief law enforcement officer in Minnesota.
In October, it looked like Keith Ellison might lose his race for Minnesota Attorney General, even though he was the favorite.
I discussed Ellison’s troubling and continued relationship with Louis Farrakhan, and the accusations by a former girlfriend of domestic abuse, in my post, Is political end finally here for former Farrakhan activist Keith Ellison? Down 7 points in Minnesota AG race.
The domestic abuse accusations were contested, but there was no contesting Ellison’s close association with the Nation of Islam in the 1990s, and more recently.
In February 2018, I wrote about Keith Ellison’s Farrakhan addiction:
Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison is a darling of the progressive movement, which pushed hard for him to be Chair of the Democratic National Committee. But Ellison had to settle for Vice Chair.
An issue that has dogged Ellison his entire political career was his relationship to Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam for a decade or more ending in the late 1990s.
Ellison once wrote under the names Keith Hakim, Keith X Ellison and Keith Ellison-Muhammad, and supported and defended the Nation of Islam even as Farrakhan was excoriated in mainstream politics for his anti-Semitism and anti-white racism.
When Ellison ran for Congress in 2006, he disavowed Farrakhan, and downplayed his own role in the Nation of Islam. The Power Line Keith Ellison Archive is a must read. Keith Ellison for Dummies, in particular, has the timeline of Ellison’s career with documents, and his strategic 2006 apology to the Jewish community.
We covered Ellison’s prevarications on Farrakhan in numerous posts:
- Mother Jones proves Keith Ellison lying about his Farrakhan history
- Keith Ellison DNC bid circling Farrakhan drain as Perez set to announce
- Soros-funded groups fight scrutiny of Keith Ellison’s Nation of Islam past
- Keith Ellison blames “right-wing smear campaign” for his Farrakhan and Israel controversies
But even in all those posts, we just assumed Ellison gave up his Farrakhan addiction sometime in the late 1990s, and the rest of his political career was running from that history.
But Jeryl Bier writes at The Wall Street Journal that in 2013 and 2016 Ellison met with Farrakhan, Keith Ellison, Louis Farrakhan and Iran…
Ellison also has become the go-to congressman for anti-Israel groups, as we covered in these posts:
- Top Dems rally around radical Keith Ellison for DNC Chair
- Keith Ellison’s troubling relationship with anti-Israel groups
- Soros-funded groups fight scrutiny of Keith Ellison’s Nation of Islam past
- 2010 audio: Keith Ellison complains U.S. Mideast policy turns on “what is good or bad” for Israel
Now he’s the chief law enforcement officer in Minnesota. The Star Tribune reports:
Democratic U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison will be Minnesota’s next attorney general, defeating Republican Doug Wardlow after a bitter campaign marked by allegations of domestic abuse and an intense spotlight on both candidates’ pasts.
Ellison helped deliver the DFL Party a sweep of the statewide elected offices and was met by a raucous room of supporters chanting his name at the party’s election night celebration in St. Paul. Ellison acknowledged the difficulty of the race but said his campaign persevered thanks to his supporters….
Ellison has a long history of progressive community activism and spent two terms in the Legislature before being elected to Congress. While running for attorney general, he again came under attack for his past association with Louis Farrakhan, the anti-Semitic leader of the Nation of Islam, and for representing the leader of a Minneapolis gang linked to the 1992 slaying of a local officer. Ellison also spoke out in 2000 in support of two women who either killed or attempted to murder police officers.
The DFL Party has stuck behind Ellison since after his primary win, but the investigation it ordered to look into Monahan’s allegation that Ellison tried to drag her off a bed during a 2016 argument failed to produce the clear answers that many sought.

Did they find boxes of uncounted ballots? Did they raid the cemeteries again? Or are the MN voters that anti-Semitic?
“Or are the MN voters that anti-Semitic?”
The Somalis seem comfortable settling in frozen MN, has to be more than the weather enticing them to stay.
It’s all the many, many, many, too many taxpayer paid welfare PERKS the Democrats are forcing on them.
The issue isn’t the Somali community, they’re a symptom just like Ellison is, and nothing more.
Not every person in Minn voted for these two antisemitic candidates.
It just goes to show that to be a Democrat is to be untouchable!
This one and the Scott Walker loss hurt for different reasons.
I always find it disheartening when truly bad people get elected. Two examples from yesterday are Ellison and Bob Menendez who won by 10 points in NJ.
If you thought the John Doe Raids in Wisconsin were chilling, just wait for Ellison to get warmed up.
Hey, you get what you ask for!
The rapidly changing new US demographic finds such people as perfectly acceptable. Hard to believe ivut get used to it . And coming soon to a theater near you
Not to mention supporter of cop-killers. That ought to be the most prominent charge on the bill against him.
Supporter of cop-killers.
Either way, he was the perfect face for the DNC. Too bad he only had the #2 spot there.
I read it was more than “accused wife abuser.”
I read that a police report(s) had been filed.
Call me crazy* I’ve been called worse. Actually, I had to live in Virginia to get into a bar fight over being Italian. In Kali my existence inspired the ire of people who thought I was Iranian or Mexican. Like at the tractor pull in Bakersfield. And it never really bothered me as I was hanging out with Iranians and Mexicans and when I tan I can pass and really, wouldn’t it be an insult to say, “I’m not one of them.” If you hate Mexicans, I’m one of them.

There I was in Virginny and the guy is calling me a [email protected] and I
am like, “Yes Finally. Someone got it right.”
*The English word “crazy” doesn’t translate well into other languages. I noticed more than one basketball player apparently asking a Japanese friend what the English word “crazy” means in Japanese. Kichigai. But that doesn’t mean some kind of wild and fun. It means criminally insane.

I don’t care that his ethnicity was Mexican. I care that he was American. He was a white hat. No race or ethnicity has a lock on heroism. Or, cowardice. We could be here all week if I could be bothered to list all the HIspanics and black men who demonstrated extraordinary courage. Aaron Katz is one of my personal heroes.

Awarded for actions during the World War II
The President of the United States of America takes pleasure in presenting the Navy Cross to Ensign Aaron Katz, United States Naval Reserve, for extraordinary heroism in operations against the enemy while serving as Pilot of a carrier-based Navy Torpedo Plane in Torpedo Squadron EIGHT (VT-8), attached to the U.S.S. SARATOGA (CV-3), during action against enemy Japanese forces in the Solomon Islands Campaign on 24 August 1942. In an unsupported aerial torpedo raid against a Japanese task force, Ensign Katz pressed home his attack through a bursting hail of fire from hostile anti-aircraft batteries. He contributed to the relentless fighting spirit and aggressive courage which enabled his squadron to score one certain hit and two estimated hits on an enemy aircraft carrier. His superb airmanship and unyielding devotion to duty aided greatly in the defeat of a persistent foe and were in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.

I don’t care that Ellison is black. I care that he loves cop killers. And now he’s an AG. How the h3ll does that happen.
This is what happens when you hire crying boehners to be your bulwark against leftists infesting your public education systems.
We need to take back our schools.
Look for de vos to be dumped very soon.
apostle, more like. He was an apostle of Farrakhan’s. For years.
Then, #2 at the DNC.
Yet, according to the enemy-of-the-people-media, we on the Right are the “racists”.
Get used to it! I live in GA and grew up in FL and I simply cannot understand how my two states have just ALMOST elected two anti-Americans Communist. They both are incompetent hoaxes but they came within one percentage point of both getting elected. Look at the looney toon in NYC. In every interview that I have seen of her, she simply cannot answer the most basic questions about her own policies. NJ just re-elected a child molesting conman and now MN has elected a woman beater! Don’t you get it? The sane normal people are slowly being replaced with mind-numbed social media addicts that believe what they read and have zero reasoning power.
