Anti-Semitic Lawmaker Lectures President Trump on Anti-Semitism
Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) has a long history of anti-Semitic activities.
Ellison hates Israel and has a long history with the Nation of Islam.
A true champion for anti-Semites.

Who is Keith Ellison?…
In 1997, when Joanne Jackson, executive director of the Minneapolis Initiative Against Racism (MIAR), allegedly said that, “Jews are among the most racist white people”, Ellison, using his religious name Mohammed, read a statement supporting her on behalf of the The Minneapolis-St. Paul Study Group of the Nations of Islam: “[We] stand by Ms. Jackson. We stand by the truth contained in the remarks attributed to her, and by her right to express her view without sanction. Here is why we support Ms. Jackson: She is correct about Minister Farrakhan. He is not a racist. He is also not an anti-Semite.”
The media and the left are suddenly interested in anti-Semitism again. As usual the “interest” is purely politically convenient. The best evidence of that is the coronation of Keith X. Ellison.
Ellison’s anti-Semitic past continues to be covered up by the media because it’s certainly very revealing that a top progressive had Nation of Islam ties. It’s also very revealing that no one will talk about it.
As a third-year student at the University of Minnesota Law School in 1989-90, he wrote two columns for the Minnesota Daily under the name “Keith Hakim.” In the first, Ellison refers to “Minister Louis Farrakhan,” defends Nation of Islam spokesman Khalid Abdul Muhammad, and speaks in the voice of a Nation of Islam advocate. In the second, “Hakim” demands reparations for slavery and throws in a demand for an optional separate homeland for American blacks. In February 1990, Ellison participated in sponsoring Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael) to speak at the law school on the subject “Zionism: Imperialism, White Supremacy or Both?” Jewish law students met personally with Ellison and appealed to him not to sponsor the speech at the law school; he rejected their appeal, and, as anticipated, Ture gave a notoriously anti-Semitic speech.
n a November 6, 1995, column for the Minneapolis periodical Insight News, Ellison wrote under the name “Keith X Ellison.” He condemned a Star Tribune editorial cartoon that was critical of Farrakhan as a role model for blacks because of his anti-Semitism. Ellison argued to the contrary.
Then, in February 1997, Ellison appeared as a local spokesman for the Nation of Islam with the last name “Muhammad.” He spoke at a public hearing in connection with a controversy involving Joanne Jackson of the Minnesota Initiative Against Racism (MIAR). Jackson was alleged to have said, “Jews are among the most racist white people I know.” Jackson denied making the statement or insisted that it had been taken out of context. Ellison appeared before the MIAR on behalf of the Nation of Islam in defense of Jackson’s alleged statement. According to the Star Tribune and the full text of the statement published in the Minneapolis Spokesman-Recorder, Ellison said: “We stand by the truth contained in the remarks attributed to [Ms. Jackson], and by her right to express her views without sanction.”
Ellison has a long history of involvement with Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam.
Today Ellison lectured President Trump on anti-Semitism.
Why has it taken @realDonaldTrump so long to even say the word “anti-Semitism?” Perhaps it has something to do with placating his base?

President Trump has a long record of defending the Jewish people.
It’s like the anti-Semites are lecturing the non anti-Semites.
We live in a strange world where actual anti-Semites are lecturing non anti-Semites on anti-Semitismhttps://t.co/FhRDbO8KK0
