Teabaggers want Keith Ellison defeated because he's Muslim
There's no religious test for being a congressman. But never mind that. Tea Party Nation leader and founder Judson Phillips wants Rep. Keith Ellison thrown out of office because he's Muslim.
At least Phillips wears his bigotry right out there on his sleeve where everyone can see it. Score one for transparency in the 2010 congressional campaign.
In a posting on his website, Phillips hits Ellison for not being conservative enough and then tars him with all that plainly un-American Muslim business.
There are a lot of liberals who need to be retired this year, but there are few I can think of more deserving than Keith Ellison. Ellison is one of the most radical members of congress. He has a ZERO rating from the American Conservative Union. He is the only Muslim member of congress. He supports the Counsel for American Islamic Relations, HAMAS and has helped congress send millions of tax dollars to terrorists in Gaza.
Congress funneling tax dollars to terrorists? How'd that blatant and open breach of national security manage to elude the authorities? If we had Judson Phillips' keen insight on the hidden truth, we'd surely know.
Meanwhile, the good ol' boy from Tennessee wants his fellow teabaggers in Minnesota's 5tn Congressional District to get behind Lynne Torgerson for Congress.
That's sounds logical. CP readers may remember independent candidate Torgerson for her insistence that Islam promotes criminal behavior and that Ellison isn't fit to serve in office.
