The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is about to choose a Chairperson to fill the seat left vacant by the disgraced Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. They’ve narrowed it down to two hardcore Marxist propagandists. The party has moved very far left and apparently they are not pulling back.
The two candidates in the lead are Thomas Perez and Keith Ellison. Ellison is the favorite by far.
Keith Ellison has ties to radical Islamists including anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Stacy Washington summed it up during an interview with Charles Payne on Fox Business:
“When you thought of the candidates or people they [Democrat Party] might bring forward, Keith Ellison was one of the last individuals I would ever even consider. Considering the election results, considering the hard core move to the left that the Obama Administration made over the past eight years and anger Americans feel towards that, lack of focus on jobs, failed energy policy, foreign policy…they choose someone— or are considering someone, he’s made a trip to Mecca funded by Muslim Brotherhood. We’re even on the extreme of hard core Democrats.”
The Washington Free Beacon published information about Keith Ellison’s secret trip to Mecca though it was also reported back in 2009. The trip cost $13,500 but the Muslim American Society (MAS) paid for it.
Federal prosecutors said in a 2008 court filing that MAS “was founded as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.” A House Ethics Committee investigation later concluded that the trip had to be disclosed as a gift to a public official but Ellison didn’t.
Ellison is a supporter of CAIR the Council on American Islamic Relations.
Court records show that CAIR was created by a Hamas-support network in America created by the Muslim Brotherhood.
Ellison repeatedly defends CAIR, saying it is “a legally operating organization” that would have been shut down had it done anything wrong. He fails to mention that the FBI severed formal relations with CAIR in about 2007, due to questions about its founders’ ties to the Hamas-support network known as the Palestine Committee.
In court papers, prosecutors wrote that CAIR was “a participant in an ongoing and ultimately unlawful conspiracy to support a designated terrorist organization, a conspiracy from which CAIR never withdrew.”
Ellison has ties to radical groups like the Nation of Islam and its radical leader, Louis Farrakhan. He worked for the racist Farrakhan. Ellison once wrote under the names Keith Hakim, Keith X Ellison and Keith Ellison-Muhammad, to support and defend the Nation of Islam.
He once proposed making a separate country for blacks.
Scott Johnson of the Powerline blog has followed Ellison’s career for the past ten years and outlines what he uncovered in this audio. This audio is fascinating.
Ellison actively supported the Nation of Islam’s anti-Semitism.
“The Jews, a small handful, control the movement of this great nation, like a radar controls the movement of a great ship in the waters … the Jews got a stranglehold on the Congress,” Ellison once said, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
He was also a truther who later pulled it back.
While speaking to an atheist group in 2007, Ellison suggested former president George W. Bush orchestrated the September 11 terrorist attacks.
“It’s almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that,” Ellison said of 9/11. “After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it, and it put the leader [Hitler] of that country in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted.”
Some historians theorize that the Nazis were behind the Reichstag fire and that it was a false flag operation, and so certain Republicans took Ellison’s comments as implying that 9/11 was an inside job.
Ellison added that he wouldn’t suggest Bush had a role in the attacks because “you know, that’s how they put you in the nut-ball box — dismiss you.” He eventually said he knew Osama Bin Laden was behind the attacks
Thomas Perez, our former Labor Secretary under Barack Obama, is the runner up for DNC chair.
Perez is a racialist and an open borders proponent. He also has issues of competence.
An internal watchdog report released by the DOJ’s Inspector General, Michael E. Horowitz, harshly criticized Perez’ department while under his leadership. Perez blamed it on Bush but the report shows clearly that racialism is a serious problem in the department because of his leadership.
The report states that “the politically charged atmosphere and polarization within the Voting Section continued even after the 2009 change in the Division’s leadership.”
While there was insufficient evidence of clear wrongdoing, the report states that the the high level of “mistrust and polarization” in the department puts enforcement of voting laws and redistricting at risk of improper handling.
Since 2009, cases of white victims were ignored and the cases taken up were “traditional” civil rights cases on behalf of racial or ethnic minorities who have been the historical victims of discrimination.”
One former attorney, J. Christian Adams, claimed bias in the New Black Panthers case but the case was dismissed. He resigned as a DOJ lawyer because he was told that they would only be litigating cases in which the defendants are minorities.
The DOJ report vindicates Adams.
Perez was the head of the votings section when the New Black Panther’s case was dismissed on May 15, 2009
The 258-page report can be read on this link.
Perez led the administration’s racial alarmists against voter ID laws in South Carolina but was shot down by the U.S. District Court for the D.C. Circuit. Similar cases he litigated have been struck down in Arkansas, Florida and New York.
He is a believer in quota systems which have been rejected by the SCOTUS. One bill he supported, the Employment Nondiscrimination Act (ENDA), was intended, allegedly, to ban discrimination by employers against LGBT’s. It would set quota systems though Perez denied that but how else could employers prove they are not biased?
In other cases, he has harassed the police and fire departments, demanding that quotas be put in place. He took on one case initiated by the DOJ in 2007. In that case, he said that black firefighter applicants who fail by as much as 70% must still be admitted to the fire academy.
In February 2011, Perez demanded damages for rejected applicants who scored 25 or higher on the 85-question exams. Taxpayers would be forced to pay compensation for incredibly under-qualified applicants solely because of their minority status. They would be hired with the seniority they would have earned had they been qualified.
Perez is an open borders proponent. He has conducted a witch hunt against Sheriff Joe Arpaio despite findings that he has not violated the law but enforced it, something the Obama administration refused to do.
He also took the lead against Arizona’s SB 1070 which was a valid interpretation and enforcement of federal law.
Perez was President of Casa de Maryland, a radical pro-illegal immigration advocacy group. He supported benefits for illegals from “in-state tuition discounts for illegal alien students to driver’s licenses. Casa de Maryland opposes enforcement of deportation orders, has protested post-9/11 coordination of local, state, and national criminal databases, and produced a ‘know your rights’ propaganda pamphlet for illegal aliens depicting federal immigration agents as armed bullies making babies cry.”
Even while serving in the DOJ, he volunteered for Casa de Maryland and received donations from George Soros’ Open Society and Hugo Chavez’ CITGO. Conflict of interest?
In this video, Thomas Perez refuses to say the DOJ will not criminalize speech against any religion. It’s not a hard question.
