Has CAIR Endorsed Keith Ellison?

Credit here goes to: The American Thinker

Beginning Wednesday, October 25, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) will air its “Not in the Name of Islam” anti-terror television advertisement on cable networks in Minnesota, including during a Monday night Vikings football game.

CAIR’s 30-second spot features American Muslims stating: “We often hear claims Muslims don’t condemn terrorism and that Islam condones violence. As Muslims, we want to state clearly that those who commit acts of terror in the name of Islam are betraying the teachings of the Quran and the Prophet Muhammad. We reject anyone ­ of any faith - who commits such brutal acts and will not allow our faith to be hijacked by criminals. Islam is not about hatred and violence. It’s about peace and justice.

Hmmm...So it must be purely a coincidence that it is to begin airing television spots in Minnesota affirming that most Muslims are against terrorism during a Monday night Minnesota Vikings game. Keith Ellison, a Black Muslim of the Farrakhan variety is running for Congress in the Fifth District in Minneapolis.

If CAIR were found to be engaging in partisan politics, it would jeopardize its tax-exempt status. I just wonder why the ads are running only in Minnesota if there is no intent to influence an election?

Some background information on Keith Ellison:

It looks like another case of 'don't let the left hand see what the right is doing.'

That's an impressive list of anti-American, subversive actions, IMHO.

In my opinion also. What really throws me is that Ellison is endorsed by the American Jewish World.
Why would any Jewish organization endorse a candidate who has previously stated that the Jewish people are the most racist people in the world?

Hmmm, a post with Ellison, CAIR, and Pelosi all within a few lines of each other just gives me the creeps.

Joe and Steve are really on top of what's happening. I'm glad to contribute whatever I can in this effort.

"during a Monday night Vikings football game."

Those sons of hijab wearing bitches will have their day soon. that'll just piss off the overwhelming majority of guys that want to get back to the game.

That's quite an interesting point!

Why not present this spot on National tv. If this is true, why just MN?
Must be politically motivated.

"We reject anyone ­ of any faith - who commits such brutal acts and will not allow our faith to be hijacked by criminals. Islam is not about hatred and violence. It’s about peace and justice."

I like the part 'it's about peace and justice'
Isn't that what a Jihadists does?
Does justice in the name of ALLAH.

Thanks for the link, AC. I appreciate it a lot!

I did a post on this guy: "Keith Ellison Ignorant Regarding Farrackhan's Hatred of Jews!" on October 8th! He's a real piece of work. He swears he didn't know that Farrackhan hated Jews back when he joined up with Farrackhan. That's like saying you don't know that Ahmadinejad hates Jews. How anyone can believe this guy is beyond me.

FTGF..I completely agree. This should be done nationally. You cannot help but think there is political motivation by running this ad in the only state a Muslim has a legitimate shot at becoming a member of the House.

Gayle..you're welcome. I remember your post. It was one of the reasons I was looking into Keith Ellison.

And I agree with ya about 24.
My brother is a big fan and purchased all the seasons for the same reasons.
You do get lost if ya miss an episode. And that's one reason why I like it; the twists and turns, not too predictable and it keeps ya on your toes!
Keep up the great research and postings crusader!
Your friend in the FTGF!

Thanks for the informative post AC. It's because of you I've learned more about CAIR and Keith Ellison.

Cheers,
FP

Did Ellison really say he didn't know that Louis Farrakhan hated Jews?

 
At 10:06 AM, Blogger American Crusader said...

fc...If you were to believe that Ellison wasn't aware of Farrakhan's hatred for the Jews then why would anyone vote for him?
Somebody that naïve shouldn't be in Congress.
