Known by the company you keep: Demorat Keith Ellison dined with Louis Farrakhan, Iranian president

ellison obama and farrakhan

From Fox News: Democratic National Committee Deputy Chair Keith Ellison attended a private dinner hosted by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in 2013, along with the head of the black nationalist group Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan.

First reported by The Wall Street Journal, Ellison, the Democratic congressman from Minnesota, also visited with Farrakhan in 2015.

Ellison attended the 2013 dinner with two other members of the Congressional Black Caucus—Reps. Andre Carson, D-Ind., and Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y. Rouhani invited Muslim leaders from around the U.S. to dinner after addressing the United Nations General Assembly.

The Nation of Islam website confirmed the attendance of “the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan” to the dinner on Sept. 23, 2013 across the street from the U.N. headquarters in New York City. FinalCall.com, the Nation of Islam’s publication, confirmed Ellison’s attendance with an article, and photos of Ellison and Farrakhan at the tables.

“After the guests were hosted at a dinner, the Iranian president entered and engaged in warm discussion with guests, including Democratic congressmen Greg Meeks of New York, Keith Ellison of Minnesota, who is a Muslim,” Final Call wrote on Oct. 2, 2013.

Iran has been listed by the U.S. government as a “state sponsor of terrorism” since 1984.

But the dinner was not the first time Ellison was associated with Farrakhan. Ellison attended Farrakhan’s Million Man March in 1995, and even publicly defended Farrakhan – who has repeatedly made anti-semitic remarks, and has called Jews “satanic” – according to a report by the Daily Caller.

Ellison has attempted to distance himself from Farrakhan, especially during his run for DNC chair in 2016, writing an op-ed for The Washington Post, painting his relationship with Farrakhan as limited to the 1995 march.

But Farrakhan slammed Ellison, posting a video to Facebook saying that Ellison and Carson visited him in 2015.

Neither the DNC nor Ellison’s office responded to Fox News’ request for comment.

Former White House press secretary, now Fox News contributor Ari Fleischer slammed the media for not covering the latest Ellison-Farrakhan development. “Once again, no feeding frenzy by the media. Don’t let anyone tell you the press is neutral. They’re not. Their silence is deafening. Ellison Attended Private Dinner With Iranian President and Louis Farrakhan in 2013 via @freebeacon,” Fleischer tweeted Monday.

The Congressional Black Caucus also has been tied to Farrakhan in recent months – especially with the surfacing of a photo taken in 2005, with then-Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill. smiling alongside him. A Final Call photographer, according to the Daily Caller, said he kept the photo hidden for 13 years at the request of the CBC in order to protect Obama’s political career.

Just last week, Democratic Rep. Danny Davis of Illinois defended Farrakhan as an “outstanding human being.”

Farrakhan’s past extreme comments include praise for Adolf Hitler as a “very great man,” blaming Jews for the 9/11 attacks, and saying white people “deserve to die.”

“I don’t regard Louis Farrakhan as an aberration or anything, I regard him as an outstanding human being who commands a following of individuals who are learned and articulate and he plays a big role in the lives of thousands and thousands and thousands and thousands of people,” Davis told the Daily Caller last week, and noted that “it wouldn’t be anything out of the ordinary” for him to meet with Farrakhan.

Muhammad Ali was a racist; called white people ‘devils’

When three-time heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali died last June 3 in Phoenix, Arizona, at age 74, the accolades poured in:

  • The media published obituaries rehashing his spectacular boxing career and accomplishments as a “civil rights champion” and “an emblem of strength, eloquence, conscience and courage” who spoke out against racism, war and religious intolerance.
  • Then-POTUS Barack Obama issued a statement saying that Ali had fought for everyone, that he stood with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “when it was hard; spoke out when others wouldn’t. His fight outside the ring would cost him his title and his public standing. It would earn him enemies on the left and the right, make him reviled, and nearly send him to jail. But Ali stood his ground. And his victory helped us get used to the America we recognize today.”

But Ali’s FBI files, obtained by the citizen watchdog group Judicial Watch, paint a very different portrait of the acclaimed boxer and activist.

Judicial Watch reports, May 3, 2017:

“The FBI files present a picture of the late heavyweight champion that is clearly at odds with much of the image portrayed at the time of his death last year. His deep involvement with the Nation of Islam and its racially divisive rhetoric and behavior is part of a record that deserves to be revealed and contradicts Ali’s image as a civil rights icon. The hundreds of pages of documents are related to the FBI’s investigation of Ali for evading the draft and the government’s monitoring of the Nation of Islam, which is described by the agency as an ‘all-Negro, quasi-religious organization which espouses a line of violent hatred of the white race, Government, law and law enforcement.’”

According to FBI records, Muhammad Ali referred to Caucasians as “white devils” and “crackers” and told mosque worshipers that “black women have the best sons and daughters in the world.” Known as Cassius Clay before converting to the Nation of Islam, Ali said blacks want separation not integration because “programs of [racial] integration are useless” and the 1964 Civil Rights Act was a “swindle.”

Consistent with the teachings of the Nation of Islam, Ali said in a mosque delivery that “the so-called Negro is the original man and is superior to the white devil” and that he’d rather be with his own people than “blue-eyed devil white people.” Ali told a Washington D.C. mosque crowd that he preferred “dying outright” or going to jail than going into the Army; and to a Cleveland mosque that the American flag “represented death and destruction” but the “Muslim flag” represents “life and prosperity, justice for all black men.”

In the 1960s, the FBI closely monitored Ali as a “security matter” due to his associations with Nation of Islam leaders Elijah Mohammad and Malcom X. The Nation of Islam followed Mohammad’s bizarre interpretation of the Koran that white people are “white devils” to be destroyed in a coming “War of Armageddon.” In April 1964, Ali’s plans to travel to Muslim countries alarmed the FBI and the agency searched his passport files and recorded that while in Accra, Ghana, Ali said he planned to bring four wives back to the US. According to one of Ali’s ex-wives, Sonji Roi, the Nation of Islam received 80% of the boxer’s earnings while he only got 20%. The FBI records also state that Ali was arrested for assault and battery in July 1960 at his parents’ home in Louisville, Kentucky and that his mother had witnessed the crime.

Judicial Watch had to sue the government to get the decades-old FBI records on Muhammad Ali, noting the irony that Ali’s family is using his name and legacy to launch a national anti-discrimination campaign, “Step into the Ring,” to end racial and religious profiling. Ali’s second wife, Khalilah Camacho-Ali, and son, Muhammad Ali Jr, said their inspiration for the campaign came from their being detained, questioned, harassed, and subjected to “racial and religious profiling” by federal immigration officers at a south Florida airport, when they were returning from a Jamaican Black History month event.

When he died, Muhammad Ali’s net worth was estimated to be $80 million.

Actor-comedian Chris Rock has a net worth of $70 million, but says America is racist and July 4th is “Happy White People’s Day”.

Actor Samuel L. Jackson, with a net worth of $200 million, says America’s police are racist.

Despite being twice elected POTUS, with a net worth of $40 million, Obama told the NAACP that America is still racist because of slavery.

When successful blacks, with multi-million dollars in net worth of which ordinary Americans can only dream, still insist America is racist and white people are devils, what hope is there for racial relations?

Iran is a terror threat to the Middle East, Latin America & USA

Did you know that in 2010 in New York City, the heads of the New Black Panthers and Nation of Islam met secretly with then-Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and forged an alliance against their common enemy — the white race?

P.S. To the bashers and mockers of conspiracy theories, here’s a real conspiracy!

Consortium of Defense Analysts

Iranian and Western officials are in Lausanne, Switzerland rushing to reach a nuclear framework agreement by an end-of-month deadline, which means today.

It doesn’t help that an Iranian defector, a journalist who was a close media aide to Iran’s president and was present at the nuclear talks, said on television after his defection that the U.S. negotiation team is an advocate (“speaks for”) for Iran at the negotiation table.

And so it is with good reason that on March 29, 2015, in Jerusalem, newly reelected Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned against the emerging nuclear deal with Iran. More ominously, Netanyahu said that “Iran is maneuvering from the south to take over the entire Middle East.” Referring to the unrest in Yemen, Netanyahu said that “While [world powers] convene to sign this deal, Iran’s proxies in Yemen are conquering large swaths of land in an effort to overtake…

Farrakhan threatens race war, as “teens” kill white man with hammers

In a speech last Saturday (Nov. 29, 2014) at Morgan State University, a black college located in Baltimore, Maryland, leader of the black Muslim Nation of Islam Louis Farrakhan — with his pasted-on hair and his malice barely concealed beneath his sinister smile — effectively calls for a race war in America by threatening that “we’ll tear this goddamn country apart” if the demands of Ferguson protesters aren’t met.

The protesters want to indict white police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of black 18-year-old Michael Brown although a St. Louis County grand jury had reviewed the evidence and concluded that the shooting of Brown was justified and Wilson should not be indicted.

The Daily Caller reports that Farrakhan said that peaceful protests are only in the interest of “white folks.” Invoking the “law of retaliation” that he claims to be in both the Bible and the Koran, Farrakhan said violence is justified in response to the St. Louis County grand jury’s decision. “We are going to die anyway,” so “Let’s die for something.”

Farrakhan also said the parents of teenagers should teach their kids how to throw Molotov cocktails: “Teach your baby how to throw the bottle if they can. Fight!” Farrakhan then made gestures of throwing an explosive device.

Despite its name, the beliefs of the Nation of Islam have little to do with Islam but instead consist of bizarre notions that “the original man” was black, that a black scientist invented the white man — those evil “blue eyed devils” — in a lab some 6,000 years ago, and that the end days are near, when a big mother “wheel” or UFO will appear in the sky to restore blacks to their rightful place on Earth as the superior race. (See Message to the Black Man in America, by Nation of Islam founder Elijah Muhammad, who was born Elijah Robert Poole.)

Meanwhile, a group of “teens” in St. Louis seemed to have heeded Farrakhan’s call to a race war.

In the early hours of Sunday, Nov. 30, 2014, 32-year-old Zemir Begic was sitting in his car in south St. Louis when a group of “teens” began banging on the car. Begic, a Bosnian immigrant to the United States, stepped out of the car and was brutally attacked by the “teens” with hammers until he was unconscious and left for dead. The suspects then fled on foot.

KMOV St. Louis reports that Begic was found unconscious with injuries to his head, abdomen, face and mouth in the 4200 block of Itaska at 1:15 a.m. He was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Surveillance video led to the capture a short time later of two of the suspects, 15 and 16 years old, who were placed in the custody of juvenile authorities. Later, a third teen, 17, surrendered himself to homicide investigators.

The violent death of Begic sparked a spontaneous protest in south St. Louis’ Bosnian community with about 50 demonstrators blocking off traffic at Gravois and Itaska Sunday night.

St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson tried to assure the Bosnians: “I want everybody to know I take your safety and everyone in the community’s safety very seriously. I heard your message loud and clear. You want to make sure you are safe. I want to make sure you are safe in every neighborhood in our city.”

Dotson also said the strain Ferguson has put on his department is great as officers have been working 12 hour shifts and no days off, but he assured the crowd the police will be here to protect them.

So what’s the racial identity of the four “teens”?

Regular readers of FOTM should know by now that whenever the news media use vague words such as “teens” and “juveniles” in reference to crime suspects, those are code words for young BLACKS. In the case of Begic’s murderers, it’s no different. Here’s confirmation that his murderers are black.

1. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that “A police spokeswoman said investigators do not believe race played a role in the bludgeoning death of a Bosnian immigrant early Sunday, but declined to say what police believe is the motive in the killing.” That immediately is a clue that Begic’s assailants are black.

2. The deceased’s 23-year-old sister Denisa Begic told St. Louis Post-Dispatch that “some Bosnians are upset over her brother’s death because they believe the suspects, who are black and Hispanic, targeted Begic because he was Bosnian,” i.e., white. Why would those Bosnians think the suspects are black? Because not only was the brutal attack recorded by surveillance camera (the video of which has not been released to the public), there’s an eye-witness to the killing — Suad Nuranjkovic, 49, who was a passenger in Begic’s car “when a group of at least five teens started banging on the car.” Afraid for his life, Nuranjkovic got out of the car and hid in a parking lot across the street during the attack.

On Twitchy, people are tweeting about why the national mainstream media are not reporting the brutal murder by hammers of Zemir Begic. Here’s an example:

Twitter on Begic

Writing for Breitbart, Awr Hawkins concludes:

This senseless beating death—which came on the heels of the November 24 Ferguson looting and the August riots—demands a clear response from Republicans who aspire to run for president in 2016. Those would-be candidates need to study the 1968 GOP campaign and revive calls for “law and order.”

Jay-Z wears medallion of black supremacist group

Jay Z at Nets game, 4-1-2014Jay Z with wife Beyoncé at Nets game, April 1, 2014

See that huge medallion around the neck of rap mogul and Obama supporter Jay-Z?

The medallion has an 8-pointed star with the number 7 inside it.

The 8-pointed star is the symbol of a black racist sexist supremacist group called Five Percent Nation. The group’s beliefs are similar to Louis Farrakhan’s (black) Nation of Islam, but go even further.

Five Percent Nation maintains black men are gods, racially superior to all others, and that the Christian God is a lie concocted by evil devilish whites.

The number 7 is “god,” which means not only is Jay-Z a racist supremacist, he thinks he is god.

Gary Buiso reports for The New York Post, April 6, 2014, that “Last week, all eyes at the Barclays Center weren’t on Jay Z’s better half, Beyoncé — but on the coaster-size golden pendant swinging from the rapper’s neck as the couple sat courtside.”

The gaudy medallion worn by Jay-Z (and also New York Knicks basketball player Carmelo Anthony) is that of the Five Percent Nation (FPN). FPN believes that black people are the fathers and mothers of civilization, white men are the devil, the Christian god is nothing more than a ghost and only a small percentage of people (5%) really understand the world.

When asked if the group’s symbol — an eight-point star with the number 7 in the middle — held any meaning to him, Jay-Z shrugged, “A little bit.”

Michael Muhammad Knight, 36, a white author of two books on FPN who converted to Islam as a teenager, says Five Percenters believe that “the black man is God and created the universe” and is superior in every way — “physically stronger and intellectually stronger and more [morally] righteous naturally.”

In contrast, white people are “weak and wicked and inferior — basically just an errant child who needs to be corrected.” Knight wrote, “The first lesson I learned from the Five Percent was simple: F–k white people. Seriously. White people are devils.” (Which means Knight, who is white, believes he himself is a devil who should be “f-cked.” But I’m sure that logic escapes Knight.)

Knight says FPN’s beliefs about the races is more a statement about power rather than biology, “For me, it is about who is marked as privileged in the power relations of this society.” Knight calls FPN’s ideas “empowering.” He says, “Anytime someone is saying you have to accept your conditions of oppression and slavery and pray to an unseen god — that kind of god is just being used to keep people down and to keep people from looking to themselves as a solution to their problems. If there is a problem, no one will fix it for you, except yourself.”

FPN was founded in 1964 in Harlem by Clarence Smith, a former student of black Muslim Malcolm X who disagreed with the Nation of Islam over the nature of God. That’s because Clarence Smith thought he was god. Smith later changed his name to Allah, the Arabic word for god or supreme being. Not just Allah, Smith was known as Allah the Father.

Smith rejected the notion of a supernatural deity and instead believed that all black men had God in them and that black women were “earths” who took on a complementary yet subordinate role to their gods. (That would explain why Jay Z’s wife, Beyoncé, submissively called herself “Mrs. Carter” in her recent concert tour. Jay-Z‘s real name is Shawn Corey Carter.)

FPN calls the Christian God a “mystery God” concocted by 10% of the world’s population (whites) to control the other 85%.

10%+85%=95%. What about the remaining 5%?

Although Five Percenters don’t consider themselves Muslim, their name however comes from the Nation of Islam’s belief that 5 percent of humanity are “poor righteous teachers” who exist to enlighten the masses about the truth of existence. Members sometimes refer to themselves as “scientists” to drive home the search for truth. Members must learn the “Supreme Mathematics and Supreme Alphabet” — allegedly powerful tools to decipher the meaning of the universe but which are really superstitious numerology. In both, each letter and number represents a concept, for example, 1 is knowledge, 2 is wisdom, while A is Allah and B is be, or born. The number 7 on Jay Z’s pendant stands for God.

Some FPN followers take exception to those who transform their flag into a fashion accessory. Saladin Allah (another god!), a representative of the group’s upstate region told The Post, “Jay Z is not an active member — no one has vouched for him. It was always understood that you don’t wear the ­regalia if you don’t totally subscribe to the life.”

beyoncejayzobamanothereforthemJay-Z (l) makes the neo-Nazi “Quenelle” hand gesture with his bud Obama.

But then I can’t imagine why Jay Z needs anyone to “vouch” for him or why Five Percent Nation even should have rules. Since all black MEN (not women) are gods, they don’t need anyone’s stamp of approval (“vouching”) or rules. Afterall, rules are only for lesser people.

Hmm. Where have I seen that before?

I know, I know!

The Narcissistic Personality Disorder!

Last but not least, Jay-Z’s god is actually Satan. He has a song to “Lucifer” in his 2003 The Black Album. (See my post “Pop Culture Satanists“.) Of course, we’ll try to overlook Jay-Z’s (and all satanists’) illogic in believing in Lucifer, but not the God who created the fallen angel. And to think Mr. Carter thinks he’s among the godlike five percent of humanity who alone are “enlightened” and really understand the truth! LOL

New Black Panthers call for killing all white people

If a White racist group calls for the killing of all Black people, what do you think the Obama regime and the media would do?

And what if it turns out that none other than the sitting President of the United States himself had participated in and spoken before a rally of this same White racist group, would this shocking news be all over TV news and the print media?

Well, just such a racist group is doing that, but you’ve neither heard, watched, nor read about it. The reason is simple:

It’s a Black racist group that is calling for the killing of all White people.

The group is the New Black Panther Partywith whom Barack Obama had marched and before whom he spoke, during a campaign stop in Selma, Alabama in March 2007 (see photo below).

BP2

Benny Johnson reports for The Blaze that on their radio program, the New Black Panthers are calling for the killing of white babies (Aug. 14, 2013) and of white people in general.

On August 13, 2013, NBP radio played a shocking segment from a speech in 1993 at Kean College in Union Township, New Jersey, by the late Khalid Abdul Muhammad, in which he called for the extermination of all white people in South Africa, including babies, women, homosexuals, and the elderly.

Khalid Abdul Muhammad (born Harold Moore Jr.; January 12, 1948 – February 17, 2001) was the National Assistant to Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam (NOI). Though referred to as Dr. Khalid Muhammad, he had but a Bachelor’s degree from Pepperdine University. After his 1993 “kill all whites” speech, Muhammad was condemned and removed from his position by Farrakhan, as well as censured by both Houses of the U.S. Congress. Muhammad moved on to become the National Chairman of the New Black Panther Party until his death at age 53 in 2001.

Central to the ideology of the Nation of Islam — and evidently to that of the New Black Panthers as well — is the notion of whites as “blue-eyed devils” who have kept blacks, the “original man,” enslaved and oppressed for thousands of years. But in the End Times when a huge “mother ship” will appear in the sky, whites will be destroyed, which will usher in a millennial utopia where blacks — who were the original creators of civilization and science — will reign.

Khalid Muhammad

LANGUAGE WARNING!

Beginning at the 7:19 mark of the video below of Muhammad’s speech, you’ll hear him say the following:

“I say if we’re gonna be merciful, I’d give them 24 hours in South Africa to get out of town by sundown. I say, if they don’t get out of town, we kill the men, we kill the women, we kill the children, we kill the babies, we kill the blind, we kill the cripple, we kill the crazy, we kill the faggots, we kill the lesbians, I say goddammit we kill them all! If they are white, kill ‘em all!”

[Cheers, whistles, and standing ovation from the black audience]

blacks cheer kill all whitesMuhammad continues:

“Why kill the women? Why kill the babies? They are just innocent blue-eyed babies? Because goddammit they are going to grow up one day to rule your babies. Kill them now. Why kill the women in South Africa? I say kill the women because the women are the military manufacturing center. And every nine months they lay down on their backs and reinforcement rolls out from between their legs, so shut down the military manufacturing center by killing the white woman.

Why kill the older crackers? Old decrepit crackers in South Africa. How the hell do you think they got old? They got old oppressing and killing black people. I say kill . . . [makes gurgling noises as he pretends to fall to the ground] . . . Kill ‘em all! Kill the faggot. Kill the lesbians. And after you’ve killed them all […] I say then you go to the goddamn grave, and dig ‘em up, and then kill ‘em a-goddamn-gain because they didn’t die hard enough.”

[Cheers and applause]

Muslim Democrat Congressman goes postal on Hannity

Democrat Keith Ellison, 49, represents Minnesota’s 5th congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives. He is the first Muslim, a Sunni, to be elected to the U.S. Congress.

This is how a Muslim Democrat Congressman behaves on national TV: a childish tirade of ranting, bullying, and namecalling.

Here’s the account by Joe Kovacs for WND, Feb. 27, 2013:

In an epic interview for the ages, a Democratic congressman unloaded on Fox News anchor Sean Hannity Tuesday night with a non-stop verbal assault on the popular host.

Hannity opened up a segment on President Obama’s tactics regarding budget issues by saying, “Our alarmist in chief, President Panic himself, he did not feel the need to be at the White House today, nor did he think it was important enough to visit Capitol Hill and try to hammer out a bipartisan solution to the mess that he himself has put the country in.”

He showed a montage of recent Obama remarks with a soundtrack of ominous music behind it.

Hannity then introduced U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the first Muslim ever elected to Congress, who took little time to insult the program’s host.

“Quite frankly, you are the worst excuse for a journalist I’ve ever seen,” Ellison told Hannity at the outset. “What you just displayed was not journalism. It was yellow journalism. It wasn’t anything close to try to tell the American people what’s really going on. It’s just shocking to me.”

“Yellow journalism?” responded Hannity. “To play Obama in his own words is yellow journalism?”

Ellison tried to label Hannity as a champion for Republican causes, saying, “You are a shill for the Republican Party and you alibi them constantly. You alibi them 100 percent of the time.”

“I am not a registered Republican. I’m a registered conservative,” Hannity explained.

At one point that became somewhat comedic, Ellison told Hannity, “You said I could rant, and I am.”

“I’ve given you plenty of time to rant,” said Hannity, as Ellison took a brief moment to let Hannity speak. “Oh, you’re so nice to give me a word on my own program.”

At which point Ellison said, “OK, I changed my mind,” talking over the Fox host once again.

“Why are you so angry?” asked Hannity.

“Why are YOU so angry?” Ellison shouted back.

“You’re a broken record,” said Hannity.

“YOU’RE a broken record,” responded Ellison.

Hannity also asked the Democrat whether America’s massive debt was “immoral.”

“You are immoral!” Ellison fired back.

“I’m immoral?” Hannity said. “I didn’t do anything that’s immoral.”

“You say things that aren’t true!” Ellison said.

“Congressman, you are a total waste of time,” Hannity concluded. “I’m moving on because our audience deserves better. Thank you for being with us. I tried to give you a fair shot.”

“No you didn’t,” Ellison said.

***

From Wikipedia:

As a law student in 1989 and 1990, Ellison wrote several columns under the name “Keith E. Hakim” in the student newspaper, the Minnesota Daily. Washington Post Staff Writer Alan Cooperman said that Ellison’s articles “defended Farrakhan against accusations of anti-semitism,” and that Ellison “called affirmative action a ‘sneaky’ form of compensation for slavery, suggesting instead that white Americans pay reparations to blacks.”

During Ellison’s 2006 campaign, however, Ellison denounced Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam in a letter to the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota & the Dakotas, asserting he had never been a member, and that his connections with the Nation of Islam were limited to an 18-month period during which he helped organize the Minnesota contingent at the 1995 Million Man March.

In 2006, the Minnesota State Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board reprimanded Ellison for unreported campaign contributions, discrepancies in cash balances, and misclassified disbursements during his campaigns for the Minnesota House of Representatives. These transgressions occurred in the years 2002–2004. In 2005, the board opened an investigation, and Ellison was subpoenaed and fined. Ellison was repeatedly fined for late filings, was sued twice by the Attorney General of Minnesota, and was warned about absent or incomplete disclosures.
