Muslim Congressman Advocates Economic Terrorism

The Muslim–moonbat alliance has an avatar in Keith Ellison, the leftist Nation of Islam alumnus Minneapolis sees fit to send to Congress. An interview with his fellow progressives at Minnesota Public Radio offers insight into our first Muslim Congresscritter’s mentality. Here’s why he doesn’t like the tax compromise Comrade Obama struck with Republicans:

“I think that we need to create a real crisis here so that the Republicans will have to answer for denying Americans unemployment benefits on the eve of the Christmas holiday,” Ellison said. “We let them off the hook, in my opinion.”

Rhymes With Right pulls the lever on an irony alert:

Now let me see — the goal of the Democrats must be to create a crisis in order to force the GOP to enter new negotiations? Doesn’t that mean that Ellison is proposing that the Democrats take America hostage — and to subject the American people to harm? After all, to paraphrase the words of President Barack Obama,

“It’s tempting not to negotiate with hostage takers unless the hostage gets harmed… In this case, the hostage [is] the American people.”

I wonder — will Obama stand up and call these folks hostage takers?

I doubt it. But he might hide behind Michelle’s ample skirt while Slick Willie bites his lip and does it. We could call it Sister Souljah II.

Keith Ellison, human roadblock.
