DownTrend -- Democratic US Rep. Keith Ellison was one of the first to endorse Bernie Sanders, but he has flipped over to Team Hillary, calling her the “most qualified nominee in history.” Well, if that is true, why did he endorse Sanders in the first place? I mean, if Hillary is that historically qualified, why couldn’t the dumb-ass Congressman recognize that? The answer to those questions is simple: Ellison is full of shit and lying to support his party’s weak nominee.
In an op-ed for The Huffington Post, that reads more like a comedy stand-up routine, Ellison explains why he now supports Clinton.
I was an early supporter of Bernie Sanders. Yes, I was feeling the Bern. But today, I am proud to endorse Hillary Clinton for President of the United States. She offers strong progressive values, a remarkable tenacity of spirit, and has demonstrated a capacity to listen.None of that is true about Hillary; she’s always been considered a moderate democrat, not a progressive, she has no soul so she has no spirit, and she’s a stone-cold bitch who flies off the handle at the slightest inconvenience.
Now here are some very specific lies about her:
During the campaign, I was impressed by how seriously Secretary Clinton heard and respected the progressive movement. We saw her talk with Black Lives Matter activists about systemic racism.She pissed off BLM by saying “all lives matter” in a black church. She went full-bitch on a BLM supporter who questioned Hillary’s record of justice reform. She met privately with BLM leaders who emerged from the sit-down disappointed and unimpressed.
We saw her listen to environmentalists about their concerns about the Keystone pipeline.As Secretary of State, Hillary supported the Keystone XL pipeline and said the administration was ready to approve it. It wasn’t until she started running for president again that she suddenly became against it.
We saw her stand with labor activists in opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership.Not only did Hillary support the TTP, she helped author it. Again as Secretary of State she helped negotiate the trade pact’s terms. It’s one of the few things she can claim to have accomplished, and now she’s against it.
So far, all Ellison has proved is that Hillary has this innate ability to pretend to give a shit about things that she thinks liberals voters care about. If pandering and flip-flopping don’t impress you, Ellison also says Hillary has been fighting for “immigration reform” for years. I guess he forgot that she opposed illegal immigration and amnesty as a Senator. Ellison then says Hillary has also been fighting Wall Street for years, which is as laughable as it gets.
Showing that he has absolutely no awareness of history, Ellison concludes with this historic proclamation:
Hillary Clinton is the most qualified nominee in history and there is no question that she stands firmly for progressive values.The most qualified nominee in the history of what? He certainly can’t mean in American history. This country has had some truly great Presidents with impressive records of accomplishment. Hillary’s only claims to fame are that she doesn’t mind so much when her bungling gets Americans killed or when her husband sexually assaults numerous women.
I notice that Ellison doesn’t actually use the words “in American history” so he may be trying to pull one over on us. Perhaps what he really means is that Hillary is the most qualified nominee of the Democratic Party in the 2016 election. Considering that she is the only nominee in that scenario, this is technically not a lie. It’s not all that impressive, but let’s face it, Hillary is unimpressive.
Blog Author's Comments -- This far left representative of our government has his head where the sun does not shine, the typical Democrat. Keith Maurice Ellison has been the U.S. Representative for Minnesota's 5th congressional district since 2007, which should tell us about the mindset of the voters of that district in Minnesota. When he was 19 he converted from Catholicism to Islam, the religion of peace. Perhaps Ellison is sucking up to Hillary hoping to get appointed to a to-be-created cabinet post of adviser to the president on Muslim activities. I will say that he receives his share of commentary on the many stands he takes that the liberal press seems to agree with. Ellison has said, "Hillary Clinton has progressive roots and values. For decades, she has fought for the issues today’s movement marches for - expanding health care, immigration reform, and fighting for better wages and working conditions." If she would campaign on these issues she will be defeated. Most of the voters do not want, for example immigration reform, this is already causing crime problems because these illegals cannot control themselves.
Ellison also said, "attacks are nothing new to Hillary Clinton. For more than 25 years, she has faced a relentless attack machine that has sought to slander her name and distort her record. Yet, she continues to fight. Like a tree with strong roots, she may bend, but she will never break." But she has always denied or lied about what she is accused and guilty of and no one has the gumption to pull the plug on her for being such a corrupt person, such as the recent comments by the FBI director Comey on the email scam she pulled and escaped from. If anyone of us would have done this we would find ourselves behind bars. If Clinton is elected president by her liberal supporters life will be much worse than it now is with Obama. I certainly hope the people have learned their lesson by putting Obama in office twice. And how much better is America now after almost eight years of him? Does the country want a continuation of this? If so than I guess they will support Clinton, but I don't think so. It is time for a change and time to be rid of the Democrats.
