As a Leftist he would fall into the category of pro-abortion, multicultural tolerance (e.g. tolerant of all religions and atheism), a supporter of Secular Humanism (which is diametrically opposes the Christian moral paradigm, Homosexual Rights and socializing the American system of government.
As an Islamist Ellison supports the purist view of Islam as instrument by the Muslim prophet Mohammed and his immediate followers that developed Islamic Supremacist ideological theology. An Islamist will claim women have rights yet will beat them for spousal disappointment or disobedience, supports sex slaves, supports pedophilic weddings, death to homosexuals, ending secularism in favor of only Islamic Sharia ethics and morality, the only civil rights are those bequeathed to a Muslim under the rules of Sharia, no civil rights for kafir, murder of a the kafir believed to insult the nature of Islam and its prophet Mohammed and so on all in the form of intolerance.
Can I say Ellison espouses the absolute beliefs of a Leftist or an Islamist? Of course I cannot, but I can look at his associations, his public writings and the organizations he supports to draw a decent picture of the Islamist Ellison.
Ellison’s close association with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Muslim Students’ Association (MSA), Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), American Muslim Council (AMC), International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) and others which all (Check out this MB memo: English translation begins p. 16) have deep roots with the Muslim Brotherhood and many terrorist organizations.
CAIR Watch’s YouTube site has put together a slide show of Ellison being the friend of America’s enemies. These are enemies in the sense that their goal is the replacement of America’s Christian foundation and the termination of America’s Constitution instituting the American experiment of Liberty, the pursuit of happiness and a representative Republic based on the concept all men are created equal.
Here is the CAIR Watch summary:
United States Representative Keith Ellison, ever since he got into office, has been associating himself with radical Muslim organizations and individuals. This video created by Americans Against Hate (AAH) exposes Congressman Ellison’s actions. The public has a right to know, and hopefully the public will speak out.
