Democrat Compares Travel Ban To Slavery

in Latest News

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) spoke about the recent decision by the Supreme Court to keep President Trump’s travel ban on several majority Muslim nations.

Ellison compared it to the Dred Scott v. Sandford case.

Ellison stated, “All I can say is the people who believe in dignity of all people, who believe in freedom of faith, freedom of religion in America, we’re not going to stop fighting. In fact this will enliven us, inspire us to push even further and harder to establish the dignity of all people in this country. We’re not daunted here. We’re going to keep on pressing. It just proves one thing, if you steal and rip off a Supreme Court justice, then you can try to jam any kind of nasty racist ugly policy you can down the throats of the American people.”

“Let me tell you this, Our country has gone through some ugly days. I mean, the Supreme Court in 1850 said it was okay to own a black person. That’s the Dred Scott decision . That decision hit the dustbin of history, so did Plessy v. Ferguson, so did Korematsu. I’m telling you, discrimination and racism will never win in the end. So we’re just — we’re fired up and pushing forward.”

“It is not within the president’s authority to discrimination on the basis of religion. It simply isn’t. The fact that he slapped a few language — pieces of language on there and threw in a few other countries as an afterthought doesn’t correct the fundamental and original flaw. The president said that in one of the his opening statements. He wanted a complete and total ban on Muslim entry into the country. He reaffirmed that position multiple times. The fact that he comes out with an initial ban and then throws a throws a few countries in there and says it’s about — it does not change the fact that this is his intend, what he wants to do, and the Supreme Court majority ignoring that is simply ignores precedent, ignoring the truth of what the president was trying to do.”

    Fing Minnesota deserves everything it gets for electing this POS to anything. He is a racist. He should not even be a dog catcher. The only thing good in Minnesota is Michele Bachmann.

    Funny how Democrats are making comparisons to slavery, since it was the Democrats who supported slavery in the first place. Their hlypocrisy never ceases to amaze me

  • Ellison would only be happy if this was a full blown communist country and he was one of the elites that did not have to stand in line for food, water, appliances any thing that could be bought. Ellison is a looser and his more taxes, more regulations and open borders and loving the hate America groups such as antifa, alt left BLM, and others is a loosing proposition. With Trump blacks have record lows, get the Ellison and he is trying to protect our borders keeping illegals out of the country that have been costing tax payers over 1/2 trillion dollars. That money should be for our own citizens that need and veterans should be first in line. Any one on any government program that is healthy should be put on work details cleaning up the cities. Ellison your party is getting smaller and we know you want open borders because that is the only way you get new voters. Illegals caught voting should be immediately deported along with their immediate family. Voting is for legal citizens only and we have to protect our country.

    Instead of wildly shooting your mouth off, why not try educating your dumb ass with real history instead of your usual buss $hit

    Isn’t this guy a Muslim? Funny how it is the Muslim countries that practice slavery to this day but he won’t say anything about that.

  • Ellison is a shit for brains Muslim. He hates democracy, the constitution and Donald Trump. He can’t stand it that the Supreme Court ruled in Trump’s favor regarding the travel bans. He needs to go live in Palestine where there are other dumb ass Muslims like himself. He can’t write for shit either. I lost track of all of the grammatical errors in his little diatribe.

    I am so tired of reading insane rantings from Democrats who seem to all have their heads firmly implanted up their anal cavities!

  • average Joe

    what a big dummy, obviously he was playing pocket pool during his high school years instead of getting an education

  • Austinniceguy

    Blah, blah, blah. Nothing but ignorant, uneducated blather from unhinged loon Ellison. It won’t matter what you thing, you moron. The SCOTUS has already ruled and you’re going to have A LOT more to hate once President Trump appoints more judges. If it were up to you and the other flea brains in your party we would be overrun with cockroaches like the EU is.
