Truly, the Dems are the Party of Tolerance.
Rep. Keith X. Ellison-Muhammad (D - Separatist African Nation Carved Out of Georgia and New Jersey) and Rep. Hank Johnson (D - Guam is Tipping Over) have come together with two other notable cretins, Rep. Pramila Jayapal and Rep. Mark Pocan, to condemn the Jewish State for defending itself against Islamic violence.
Keith Ellison had been a longtime member of Louis Farrakhan's Nation of Islam. And was condemned for his anti-Semitic views.
One of the campus critics of Ellison (who then went by ‘Keith Hakim’) was an editor of the Minnesota Daily, Michael Olenick. Olenick told Mother Jones that in their conversations Ellison argued that blacks and other oppressed groups “could not be racist toward Jews” because “Jews were themselves oppressors.”
“‘European white Jews are trying to oppress minorities all over the world,'” Olenick said Ellison would tell him. “Keith would go on all the time about ‘Jewish slave traders.'”
The Minnesota Daily opinion editor, Michael Olenick, described Ellison’s writing as "a genuine threat to the long-term safety and well-being of the Jewish people, a threat that history dictates must not be ignored."
"Time and time again my people have been slaughtered after the words of Hakim (Ellison) and those like him influenced the masses," Olenick writes.
Ellison appeared onstage with Khalid Abdul Muhammad, who ran true to form: According to a contemporaneous Star Tribune article, "If words were swords, the chests of Jews, gays and whites would be pierced."
Good old Keith.
And then there's Hank "Termite Jews" Johnson.
Rep. Hank Johnson (D., Ga.) launched into a tirade against Israel and its policies toward the Palestinians, comparing Jewish people who live in disputed territories to "termites" that destroy homes.
Johnson, who in 2010 voiced his fears that Guam would tip over and capsize if too many people resided on the island, said that "Jewish people" routinely steal land and property from Palestinians.
"You see one home after another being appropriated by Jewish people who come in to claim that land just because somebody did not spend the night there," he said, referring to claims that Israeli settlers plot to seize Palestinian land. ‘
I think it's wonderful that anti-Semites in Congress are coming together over their mutual hatred of Jews. The only question is which of them will inherit Louis Farrakhan's bowtie when he goes up to the mothership?
