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.
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. Source: Creeping ShariaIn 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.
