ellison-radical

“Timeo Danaos et dona ferentes” is a Latin phrase and when loosely translated into English as the proverb “Beware of Greeks bearing gifts". The phrase is used to warn against possible deception by an adversary, and it seems that’s exactly what president Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch was warning us about in a recent interview: “Rep, Keith Ellison (D-MN), has a clear record of obstruction and complaint about every sensible law enforcement effort in the war on terror.”

A very serious charge no doubt, however it’s a trend Fitton finds especially disturbing in the wake of Sunday night’s terror attack in Garland, Texas, and the revelation that the shooters had contact with a jihadist originally from Minnesota.

Starting around 2007, some American Muslims began traveling to Somalia and taking up arms with Al-Shabaab. These American jihadists came from all over the USA, but dozens of them hailed from Congressman Ellison’s district.

Moreover the similarities to the administration are quite evident in that both Obama and Ellison are liberal Democrat’s both were community activists within an inner city and both have been heavily influenced by Islam, while Ellison converted to Islam in college, and both seem reluctant to identify the enemy as “radical Islamic extremists”.

Speaking recently at an event Rep. Ellison said: “The reason that we are susceptible to violent extremism is because we have not deepened opportunity in our country enough. Now it’s true that, certainly, economic deprivation makes people susceptible to being lured and seduced. That’s a fact. But it’s also true that not only is it economic deprivation, although it is certainly part of it. The other part of it is social deprivation as well and legal deprivation as well,”

And In 2009 Ellison was quoted: “violent extremism with a Muslim veneer is essentially a post-colonial reaction” (i.e., a reaction to Western colonialism of the past) and a manifestation of a “political environment rooted in grievance.”
