One of the Democrat party’s loudest mouthpieces has found himself in quite an embarrassing situation.
Rep. Keith Ellison’s (D-MN), who has served as a Representative for Minnesota’s 5th District since 2007 is currently running to become the Attorney General of Minnesota. He announced that he would be running for Minnesota Attorney General in early June, however, there’s just one problem. Ellison as of date does not have an active attorney’s license, making him ineligible to practice law in the state of Minnesota.
In Minnesota, it is not required that the state Attorney General have an active law license, but one would expect those running to become the leading voice of law within the state, the highest appointed attorney in the state to have an active attorney’s license.
Along with being a six-term lawmaker who represents Minnesota’s 5th District, Ellison is the first Muslim to ever be elected to the U.S. Congress, and has served as the Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee since 2017. When he was sworn into office, Ellison refused to be sworn in with a Bible, and instead demanded that a Quran be used as a way to emphasize “religious tolerance”.
Despite running to become Attorney General in Minnesota, Ellison has remained in his leadership position at the DNC. When Ellison announced his plans to run, Tom Perez, the DNC chair, said Ellison has been “an invaluable voice in shaping our party’s future” as his right-hand and applauded his choice to run for the state’s top law enforcement position.
“I have come to know Keith as someone who is passionate about finding every possible way to help the greatest number of Americans achieve a better quality of life,” Perez said in a statement. “And I have witnessed that passion in every single decision he has made, including whether to continue the fight in Congress or to run and serve as Minnesota’s chief law enforcement official.”
Ellison decided to run for the position of Minnesota Attorney General after Lori Swanson, the incumbent announced her plans to run for Governor of Minnesota. When he announced his candidacy on June 5, 2018, Ellison, who is a Muslim, said that he wants to become Attorney General so that he can influence immigration reform, among other issues, taking a jab at President Trump in his official statement. “No one, not even a President, is above the law. From immigration reform to protecting our air and water, it has never been more important to have a leader as Attorney General who can stand up against threats to our neighbors’ health or freedoms,” Ellison said.
You deserve an Attorney General who will never stop fighting for you and your family. That is what I plan to do. My full statement: pic.twitter.com/2uPsH3aAlQ

Since announcing his candidacy, Ellison, who claims to be an anti-discrimination advocate has not been transparent about his own support of individuals who spew hatred, bigotry, and anti-Semitism. Ellison, who claims to fight for the most vulnerable, is close friends with Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam and proponent of anti-Jewish conspiracies.
In 2013, Farrakhan attended a dinner with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in New York City to discuss the Iran deal. According to Iran’s Rouhani, Israel is “illegitimate” and doesn’t have a right to exist. Also in attendance at the dinner was Farrakhan, who along with Rouhani, has spewed hatred against Jewish people. Farrakhan himself once declared that “Hitler was a very great man”, and he has been labeled as the “leading anti-Semite in America” by the Anti Defamation League (ADL) beating notorious white supremacist David Duke to the title.
Not only did Ellison dine with Farrakhan, but he also posed for several pictures with the renowned anti-Semite, who he claimed he has no personal association with. Upon further investigation, it is evident that Ellison does in fact have a personal connection and fond admiration for Farrakhan. In 1995 while he was a law student at the University of Minnesota, Ellison helped organize buses from the Twin Cities for Farrakhan’s “Million Man March”.
With regards to his ties to other anti-Jewish and radical Islamic individuals who use their platforms to spew anti-American hatred, Ellison is also close friends with Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour. One month before Linda Sarsour called for Jihad (Islamic terrorism) to be carried out against President Trump, Ellison tweeted, “Silencing Linda Sarsour is wrong”. However, he was completely silent on the issue of whether or not it was wrong for Sarsour to call for Islamic terror to be carried out in the United States in an effort to defeat President Trump in June of 2017.

It is also worth noting that Sarsour, who once posed for a picture next to a Swastika, tweeted there is “nothing creepier than Zionism,” and has openly declared her support for implementing Sharia law in the United States, officially endorsed Ellison for DNC Chair.

When asked about his Muslim faith in a 2013 interview with the Iran Times, Ellison said, “It was Islam’s message of social justice and equality that affected me the most and satisfied my spiritual yearning and wondering about God, man, nature, and humanity.”
Ellison converted to Islam through the Davidson Muslim Center, which is part of the African American Muslim branch, a branch that used to ban whites from becoming members.
“I was driving on the highway in one of the major arteries in Detroit called Davidson and saw a sign that said ‘Muslim Center.’ I met the guys at the Davidson Muslim Center and they welcomed me in. After going there for a month, I took the Shahada, which is the first pillar of Islam, ‘There is no god but God, and Mohammed is his messenger,” Ellison told the Iran Times.
Attorney Generals are elected to uphold and enforce laws of the land, and it is unclear how Ellison, who has himself called for violent riots composed of Islamists and ANTIFA to “stop Trump” is in any what whatsoever qualified to be Minnesota’s Attorney General.
While campaigning for the Democrats last year, Ellison said, “Trump must be stopped, and people power is what we have at our disposal to make him stop. We need mass rallies. We need them all over the country. We need them in Texas. We need them in D.C. We need them in Minnesota.”
ANTIFA, which has been classified by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as a Left wing domestic terrorist organization, is often present at those rallies Ellison and his DNC colleagues have called for and organized. There are countless instances, many of which have been caught on camera, of ANTIFA members violently assaulting Trump supporters and journalists in public. In 2017, it was also revealed that the FBI has been investigating members of ANTIFA who they say have been traveling to the Middle East to train with ISIS in an effort to plan for the destruction of President Trump.
Despite being classified as a terrorist organization, Ellison tweeted a picture of himself posing with the official ANTIFA handbook, saying, “At @MoonPalaceBooks and I just found the book that strike fear in the heart of @realDonaldTrump.”

The evidence is overwhelming. One thing is certain, and that is the fact that Keith Ellison is a danger to society. Along with being an ardent supporter of Jihad, an enabler and supporter of anti-Semites such as Louis Farrakhan and Linda Sarsour, a supporter of ANTIFA, a designated domestic terrorist organization, a member of an anti-white Islamic Center, and an unlicensed attorney, Ellison is in no way whatsoever fit to serve as Minnesota’s next Attorney General.
