Ellison's Islamic beliefs: Which branch of Islam is it that comports with the Democratic Party's articles of faith on abortion, gay rights, female equality, and all the rest?

Ellison abandoned his affiliation with the Nation of Islam some time after he unsuccessfully sought
the Democratic endorsement for a state legislative seat as a self-identified member of the Nation of Islam running under the name Keith Ellison-Muhammad in 1998. Given the nonfeasance of the Star Tribune and the rest of the local media, we still don't know when Ellison gave up the Nation of Islam. In 2002, as a Muslim, Ellison won the Democratic endorsement for the legislative seat minus the -Muhammad. -- Power Line - Understanding Keith Ellison

Remember that Ellison used Thomas Jefferson's copy of the Koran for his swearing-in. The same Thomas Jefferson who, by the way, initiated war against the muslim Barbary States in 1801 (and beat them into submission).

Ellison belongs to that sect that gets 58 despoiled virgins, 12 black labs and a 3" bratwurst dildo in Paradise. That's 71.
Lucille from the New Black Panther Party visits on day 72.
He has much to look forward to receiving.

Shortly after 9/11, I read an essay arguing that we can never trust these people, EVER. When they feel strong, they'll adopt the haughty conqueror approach, demanding we lower our eyes and pay them the tribute that's their due. When they're confronted by a foe who looks like he might be able to punch back, they'll adopt this cringing, sobbing beggar approach, like Ellison, who is trying to disarm us through pity for his helplessness. In ALL cases, the goal is always "Islam wins" - we must never grant them a win in any field, no matter how insignificant. Making them strong just encourages them to switch to more aggressive tactics.

Perhaps he cried like a little girl because he's so...conflicted. (haha) He's certainly a drama queen for a militant Muslim. One line comes to mind..."There's no crying in Radical Islam!" Oh, wait. There I go stereotyping again.

But what were Dr. Jasser and Mr. Bihi? Were they not representatives of Muslims as well? Using Ellison and The Nation of Islam to represent Muslims is like using the Westboro Baptists to represent all of Christianity. The Democrat representation on that panel was politically damaging, like a side-show. They were all one-sided victim-card abusers.

And Ellison got top victim billing because he claims to be Muslim, depending on the day. And he was crying mainly because he knows the Islamic radicalization the hearing was created to address, the radicalization of which King's witnesses, two of whom are Muslims, warned is perpetuated and facilitated by his own Muslim faction, The Nation of Islam.

He knows it and everyone in America knows it. The Democrat panel made fools of themselves and any legitimate causes they may have been sent to represent. But at least America and the world witnessed just how far they were willing to go with their acts of grandstanding to attack and insult two Muslims who represent the silent majority of American-Muslims and a father of a son whose life was lost to the very evil that they excuse and perhaps serve.

This hearing was monumental in intitiating what I believe is the long-overdue Islamic Reformation. And Dr. Jasser and Mr. Bihi will remembered as fathers of the movement and Peter King as an emancipator, while Ellison and Sheila Jackson Lee and Al Green will be remembered comically, at best, or evil, at worst. That is why Ellison was crying.
