Keith Ellison for DNC head is a big blunder
There are 2 Muslims elected to Congress and the Democratic Party is seriously considering making one of them, Keith Ellison of Minnesota, head of the Democratic National Committee.
Talk about being tone deaf — and out of touch with the country’s electorate at the same time.
I was critical of Obama for driving the Jewish vote away from the Dem Party but this move will be an even bigger blunder, like slow suicide for the Party. Not because Ellison is black or a Muslim, BUT, because the DNC head — at this time — needs to rebuild the Party; reconnect with voters, convey to the population a future vision of America that is at peace with the Muslim religion, but at war — with the part of it (ISIL), that wants to destroy America and what it stands for.
Ellison is not only the wrong man for this; he’s exactly the wrong man for this.
Watch out Dems, if you think things are bad now — just wait another year or two until Ellison and Pelosi drive every last patriotic American out of the Party, then the Dems won’t be able to elect a city councilperson.
