This is one of the strangest stories of the 2010 elections. Barb Davis White, a Republican, conservative, pro-life constitutionalists candidate for Minnesota's 5th Congressional District has just filed as a Democrat to face the first of two Muslims in the U.S. Congress, Keith Ellison (D-Minn-5th) in November 2010. Why would a true conservative file as a Democrat? The Minnesota GOP endorsed Joel Demos, a Pentecostal minister. More on Demos coming. See two videos below.
There is no difference between a black person and a white person other than their skin color when there's a tremendous difference between a man and a woman. Allowing a black woman and a white man to marry does not change the definition of marriage. However, allowing two men or two women to marry would fundamentally change that definition."
Endorsing Demos for Congress in Minnesota’s 5th CD was the Minnesota GOP’s first big mistake of the 2010 election cycle.
Barb Davis White, the 2008 GOP endorsed candidate in Minnesota’s 5th CD for Congress would have been a “feather in the cap” of the Minnesota GOP if they would of made a commitment to Ms. White, her campaign staff and the community. The arrogance and exclusion of conversations with Barb, who received almost 25% of the votes in 2008 – more than any other endorsed Republican running for Congress in Minnesota’s 5th CD was a heinous and reckless over-sight by the leadership of Minnesota’s Republican Party. If the Minnesota GOP would back Barb Davis White, now that former chairman Ron Carey is gone (or lurking with the intent to participate) – Barb Davis White can beat Ellison in 2010. People in Minnesota’s 5th congressional district will see a benefit to not vote “R” or “D” and send a message to big party madness.At this point, I know nothing about Demos except reading some opinions around the blogs. More on him to come.
We'll see where this goes, and I'll add info as it becomes available. The thing is, someone must remove Keith Ellison from Congress.
The question is, who can unseat Keith Ellison? Thanks to Creeping ShariahThe fact that the FBI has broken all ties with CAIR, saying CAIR is not "an appropriate liasion partner," should be enough to divert Keith Ellison's affection for the organization. This report quotes an FBI assistant director, Richard C. Powers, saying the FBI is unsure whether the relationship between CAIR and Hamas ever was severed. So, with all of CAIR's presence on Capitol Hill, with their mammoth media blitzs and lobbying efforts, with their denial of terrorist ties, the FBI cannot support their claims...yet CAIR continues to walk the halls of Congress...and Keith Ellison continues to support the organization.
