Ellison Spouts on About Islam; 'Allahu Akbar!' is the Reply

From TROP:

First Muslim congressman encourages crowd to push for justice

By Niraj Warikoo

Detroit Free Press


DETROIT - Speaking in Dearborn, Mich., late Sunday night, the first Muslim elected to Congress told a cheering crowd of Muslims they should remain steadfast in their faith and push for justice.

"You can't back down, you can't chicken out, you can't be afraid, you got to have faith in Allah, and you got to stand up and be a real Muslim," Detroit native Keith Ellison said to loud applause.

"Allahu akbar" - God is great - was the reply of many in the crowd.

Ellison, a Minnesota Democrat elected to the U.S. House, has been the center of a national debate in recent weeks over Islam and its role in politics. Ellison has said he would take his oath of office on the Quran, the Muslim holy book, igniting a storm of criticism from some commentators. And Rep. Virgil Goode, a Republican from Virginia, said in a letter to constituents this month that the election of Ellison and other Muslims poses a danger to the country.

But Ellison said in Dearborn that Muslims can help teach America about justice and equal protection, suggesting that Muslim activists may be part of God's plan. He spoke at the annual convention of two Muslim groups, the Muslim American Society and the Islamic Circle of North America. The convention ended Monday morning.

"Muslims, you're up to bat right now. . ." he said. "How do you know that you were not brought right here to this place to learn how to make this world better? How do you know that Allah, sallalahu aleyhi wasallam," (meaning peace be upon him) "did not bring you here so that you could understand how to teach people what tolerance was, what justice was? ... How do you know that you're not here to teach this country?"

This story has now been removed by its source, The Kansas City Star Online. Wiped clean, it seems. I cannot find another source online. BIG XOXOXOXOXOs to www.thereligionofpeace.com for finding this and posting in time. I grabbed it all, and the entire piece can now be read here.
Odd, odd, odd.

What is the makeup of Ellison's constituency and can we expect more of this sort of incipient treason from similar sources in the near future?

Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot.

"...understand how to teach people what tolerance was, what justice was?" Oh, I see. Teach people what tolerance is by demanding domination or death. Teach people about justice by cutting their f-ing heads off.

The tactic is also known as normalization. Making the extreme tolerable and expected; in that way a compromise is seen as a very large move toward the enemy, a benevolent and kind gesture when compared to the brutal and injust behavior that we've all come to expect.

America is guided and ruled by the founding documents and their amendments. No separate justice system and no identity for citizens other than American.

And yes, I am intolerant.

Yes, I too am intolerant of those who would see our Constitution trampled on and replaced by the quran. I guess I'm an "arrogant infidel" as well.

I'm working on learning more about Ellison's constituency, but his area has long been known as Arab Central, though that has become "muslim central" in general. The community must be closely knit though, to have any support from the Arab Christians up there. I've noticed in some areas with large Arab populations that there is a strong sense of community across religious lines. Strange but true.

Sorry bout the Holiday post, I thought mine'd just pop up below it.

You think we have to kill all the Muslims? I don't think so. And, I don't think anyone who writes at this site would agree with you.

Pim's Ghost,
I didn't see your posting here, so I also posted on the same story. See THIS. The link to the news article is working--at the moment.

Pastorious, I am only another "Anonymous", but I sure as hell support putting to sleep every follower of the Death Cult.

It's them or us, and about 2/3 of my friends don't see "them" as an option at all. When you see deadly cancer spreading with ebola speed, you don't go for just shrinking/containing the tumor/virus. You go for total removal, i.e. extermination.

Still happy Yule to you all other infidels, P.
