Two-Time Ten Buck Friday Winner Joel Demos Faces Muslim Opponent Keith Ellison

While away on vacation, I missed three Ten Buck Friday Winners, and I'm on a mission to catch-up. I'm making my donations and hope you will too. The latest winner announced on October 8th is Joel Demos. In my opinion, this is one of the most important U.S. House races for November, because his opponent is a practicing Muslim with close ties to all the major Islamic organizations, including Louis Farrakhan's Nation of Islam.  See an entertaining video below.

With this win, Demos is now a two-time winner of the Ten Buck Friday polls. He is running for the U.S. House seat for the 5th District of Minnesota. It is good news that TBF can funnel additional funds and publicity for him.

Demos' opponent is Muslim Congressman, Keith Ellison - one of the most Liberal in in the House of Representatives, who won his last election with 71% of the vote. Obviously, Joel Demos needs our support.

His conservatism is unquestionable, as you'll see with a quick visit to his website, so I want to talk about his opponent. Keith Ellison was the first Muslim converted congressman elected to The People's House, soon followed by Muslim convert Andre Carson from Indiana.

To demonstrate the concerns of Muslims in Congress, Ellison spoke to the North American Imams Federation in 2006. The Imams are trained at the American Open University (AOU):
The AOU is a radical school that emphasizes the paramount role of Shari’a law in an American context. Its chairman Jaafar Sheikh Idris regards democracy as “the antithesis of Islam,” arguing that human beings have no right to make their own laws. “No one,” he claims, “can be a Muslim who makes or freely accepts or believes that anyone has the right to make or accept legislation that is contrary to the divine law.”  
He also declared that no Muslim elected to Congress can swear to uphold the U.S. Constitution and remain a Muslim “for in order to pledge loyalty to the constitution, a Muslim would have to abandon part of his belief and embrace the belief of secularism—which is practically another religion.” That Keith Ellison supports an institution linked to someone who holds views in such deep conflict with normative American values is deeply troubling.

In the past, Ellison voted with Barack Obama 96%+ of the time. The following is from a previous post:
Ellison is supported by Louis Farrakhan's Nation of Islam, and has close associations to the Counsel on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim-American Society (MSA), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Muslim Brotherhood and the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT). Read details of these Islamic connections here

Ellison also writes under the alias "Keith Hakim." He evaded paying income taxes for five years - had liens placed on his property and eventually paid $25,000 to settle the tax evasion. He failed to pay parking tickets and moving violations and had his driver's license suspended "multiple" times. Still yet, he won a seat in the People's House.  Read about Ellison at Discover The Networks.
Via Nice Deb, via The Other McCain, consider this from McCain:
Beat Keith Ellison . . .For the Children!
You’re looking at that picture [above] and saying, “Oh, how sweet!”
Meanwhile, Keith Ellison’s supporters are looking at that picture and shouting: “Death to the infidel dogs!
 Read about Ellison's radical Muslim donors at InvestigativeProject.

Demos is endorsed by Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty.  Read about Joel on the issues here. Hopefully you have already participated in the Demos win with TBF, and donated to him in the last few days. If not, please donate here.
