Center for Security Policy President Frank Gaffney was a guest on Breitbart News Daily Wednesday morning, where SiriusXM host Alex Marlow asked him to run through the arguments for and against Rep. Keith Ellison becoming chair of the Democratic National Committee.
“I’m not really equipped to make the case for Keith Ellison,” Gaffney admitted, but he went on to guess that “the appeal of Keith Ellison is that he is a young, very aggressive hard leftist – actually my friend Trevor Loudon in his film The Enemies Within has pointed out, a guy with actual communist ties; that’s how hard Left.”
“But he’s also a Muslim who has been hanging with, embracing, supporting, and otherwise carrying on with the Muslim Brotherhood in America,” Gaffney continues. “And that would apparently be something that qualifies him to be a leader of the Democratic Party these days. You see a lot of it in the last campaign. I can’t make the case that that’s good for Democrats. I can’t make the case that it’s good for America. But hey, if the Democrats want to take the poster child of what I think of as the ‘Red-Green Axis’ and make him the titular leader of their party, bring it on.”
Gaffney saw outgoing Senator Harry Reid’s call for Trump to nourish “unity” by dismissing former Breitbart News Daily host Steve Bannon from his White House team as little more than “crocodile tears.”
