Representative Keith Ellison is apparently uncomfortable discussing his “curious” past. He recently cancelled an interview with The New York Times after he discovered they planned to ask him about his connections with the Nation of Islam and everyone’s favorite racist, Louis Farrakhan.
It turns out he’s not nearly as comfortable with his history as we seem to think he is, though he hasn’t actually denounced it.
In their article about the Democratic Party infighting, The New York Times wrote:
Aides to Mr. Ellison were going to make him available for a telephone interview, but then declined when informed that he would be asked about his past comments on Mr. Farrakhan. They emailed a list of his links to the Jewish community and a statement that said, “Democrats need an organizer who will energize the grass-roots across this country to build the party from the bottom up.”
Why would they have to email a list of his links to the Jewish community? Do they feel the need to prove that he’s not anti-Semitic due to his ties to the Nation of Islam? If so, they are inadvertently admitting that some Muslims are anti-Semitic, specifically those within the NOI. Sounds to me like they know that they’re not good people.
It’s too bad that Ellison was too much of a coward to justify his past, because that could have told us a lot about his beliefs.
I hope Democrats realize that this is a bad move and sheds a horrible light on their new DNC Chairman. They should insist he answer these questions to at least appear transparent.
