That Tom Hagen math favors Keith Ellison

The lat­est word out of the ADL is a bad sign for the quest for Keith Elli­son

The Anti-​Defamation League (ADL) says it has new doubts about Keith Elli­son as the next chair­man of the Demo­c­ra­tic National Party. In a press release pub­lished Thurs­day the ADL cited new infor­ma­tion in the form of a 2010 speech in which Elli­son said United States for­eign pol­icy was based on what was good or bad for Israel:

CNN being CNN is doing their best to spin in his defense.

Elli­son, who said he was “sad­dened” by the ADL state­ment, added that he wanted to meet soon with Green­blatt “to dis­cuss our shared beliefs and com­mit­ment to fair­ness and jus­tice,” and said he was “com­mit­ted to build­ing a strong rela­tion­ship with you.”
Elli­son added that he thought the com­ments were being sur­faced by unnamed “right-​wing inter­ests to drive a wedge between long-​standing allies in the fight for equal rights.”
“My record proves my deep and long-​lasting sup­port for Israel, and I have always fought anti-​Semitism, racism, sex­ism, and homo­pho­bia — the same val­ues embod­ied by the Anti-​Defamation League.”
And some Demo­c­rat donors are very unhappy

Haim Saban, a major Demo­c­ra­tic Party fun­der, said Keith Ellison’s elec­tion as chair­man of the Demo­c­ra­tic National Com­mit­tee would be a “dis­as­ter” for the rela­tion­ship between Jews and the party, sig­nal­ing a loom­ing cri­sis between the party’s pro­gres­sives and the cen­trist pro-​Israel community.

The scathing broad­side deliv­ered Fri­day by the Israeli-​American enter­tain­ment mogul, from the floor of the annual Saban Forum, an event he funds bring­ing together U.S. and Israeli lead­ers and influ­encers, under­scores the degree to which Ellison’s cam­paign for DNC chief could erode rela­tions between estab­lish­ment Jew­ish groups and the party.Haim Saban, a major Demo­c­ra­tic Party fun­der, said Keith Ellison’s elec­tion as chair­man of the Demo­c­ra­tic National Com­mit­tee would be a “dis­as­ter” for the rela­tion­ship between Jews and the party, sig­nal­ing a loom­ing cri­sis between the party’s pro­gres­sives and the cen­trist pro-​Israel community.

Now you might think that with all of this stuff, Ellison’s hopes to become the head of the DNC might have dropped.
You’d think wrong.
First of all after the last elec­tion lib­eral Democ­rats have decided they need a face or can­di­date of color in order to moti­vate the black vote to turn out. This means that Elli­son has an edge that he is able to use. (Let’s not for­get the reports from the 2008 Demo­c­rat cau­cus goers who were sup­pos­edly ready for Hillary wilted at the prospect of vot­ing for her vs the poten­tial 1st black nominee).
Sec­ond of all Elli­son has embraced the most impor­tant tenet of Lib­er­al­ism, the gospel of social justice

Elli­son left Chris­tian­ity in gen­eral & Catholi­cism in par­tic­u­lar for Islam because of the var­i­ous ten­ants of lib­er­al­ism, social jus­tice, inclu­sion, bridges not walls but notice what isn’t there C.S Lewis again.

Believe this, not because it’s true, but for some other reason.

It’s quite telling that in all the rea­son he gave for his con­ver­sion to Islam, “Because it’s true” wasn’t among them.

Now it may be that he actu­ally believes the tenets of sharia law, but if he does he’s pretty quiet about it, at least to the press.

But the clincher remains the same thing that kept the MSM from report­ing the Orlando killings as an authen­tic expres­sion of Islam, the Tom Hagen math

Regard­less of what you see on TV news and talk shows the real­ity is over the next 20 years the per­cent­age of LGBT vot­ers in the US Pop­u­la­tion will likely remain static.

Dur­ing that same time period the num­ber of Mus­lim Amer­i­cans, both by immi­gra­tion and birth is going to increase dramatically.

Right now the left has the Gays and the Trans­gen­ders and the Hol­ly­wood elites & media in which they are over­rep­re­sented and they fig­ure that’s the best things to have, but in Amer­ica Islam is a thing of the future. In 20 years the chil­dren of Mus­lims now being raised on the tenets of Sharia law in Amer­ica will be old enough to vote and Democ­rats going to make sure they get those votes when the time come, not now but 1020 years from now.

And if that means more LGBT Amer­i­cans have to live in fear dur­ing those two decades, well it’s small price to pay for power.

It’s not per­sonal , it’s sim­ply a ghastly math dri­ven business

And that math is even more impor­tant when the right to slaugh­ter your kids is prac­ti­cally a sacra­ment to the Demo­c­rat party.

So it doesn’t mat­ter if Elli­son is in the pocket of the nation of Islam or CAIR, it doesn’t mat­ter what he said about Israel what mat­ter is that nobody in the Demo­c­rat party or the press will be will­ing to risk being call­ing a racist or an islam­o­phobe by try­ing to stop.

Then again given the anti­se­mitic, anti Israel and anti-​christian turn the left in the US has taken, and where the Democ­rats will be in 20 years, per­haps, regard­less of the short terms cost the selec­tion of con­gress­man Elli­son is entirely appropriate.

After all why shouldn’t the leader of the party of the left rep­re­sent not the image they want to project, but what they actu­ally are.

The latest word out of the ADL is a bad sign for the quest for Keith Ellison

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) says it has new doubts about Keith Ellison as the next chairman of the Democratic National Party. In a press release published Thursday the ADL cited new information in the form of a 2010 speech in which Ellison said United States foreign policy was based on what was good or bad for Israel:

CNN being CNN is doing their best to spin in his defense.

Ellison, who said he was “saddened” by the ADL statement, added that he wanted to meet soon with Greenblatt “to discuss our shared beliefs and commitment to fairness and justice,” and said he was “committed to building a strong relationship with you.”
Ellison added that he thought the comments were being surfaced by unnamed “right-wing interests to drive a wedge between long-standing allies in the fight for equal rights.”
“My record proves my deep and long-lasting support for Israel, and I have always fought anti-Semitism, racism, sexism, and homophobia – the same values embodied by the Anti-Defamation League.”
And some Democrat donors are very unhappy

Haim Saban, a major Democratic Party funder, said Keith Ellison’s election as chairman of the Democratic National Committee would be a “disaster” for the relationship between Jews and the party, signaling a looming crisis between the party’s progressives and the centrist pro-Israel community.

The scathing broadside delivered Friday by the Israeli-American entertainment mogul, from the floor of the annual Saban Forum, an event he funds bringing together U.S. and Israeli leaders and influencers, underscores the degree to which Ellison’s campaign for DNC chief could erode relations between establishment Jewish groups and the party.Haim Saban, a major Democratic Party funder, said Keith Ellison’s election as chairman of the Democratic National Committee would be a “disaster” for the relationship between Jews and the party, signaling a looming crisis between the party’s progressives and the centrist pro-Israel community.

It’s quite telling that in all the reason he gave for his conversion to Islam, “Because it’s true” wasn’t among them.

Now it may be that he actually believes the tenets of sharia law, but if he does he’s pretty quiet about it, at least to the press.

But the clincher remains the same thing that kept the MSM from reporting the Orlando killings as an authentic expression of Islam, the Tom Hagen math

Regardless of what you see on TV news and talk shows the reality is over the next 20 years the percentage of LGBT voters in the US Population will likely remain static.

During that same time period the number of Muslim Americans, both by immigration and birth is going to increase dramatically.

Right now the left has the Gays and the Transgenders and the Hollywood elites & media in which they are overrepresented and they figure that’s the best things to have, but in America Islam is a thing of the future.  In 20 years the children of Muslims now being raised on the tenets of Sharia law in America will be old enough to vote and Democrats going to make sure they get those votes when the time come, not now but 10-20 years from now.

And if that means more LGBT Americans have to live in fear during those two decades, well it’s small price to pay for power.

It’s not personal , it’s simply a ghastly math driven business

And that math is even more important when the right to slaughter your kids is practically a sacrament to the Democrat party.

So it doesn’t matter if Ellison is in the pocket of the nation of Islam or CAIR, it doesn’t matter what he said about Israel what matter is that nobody in the Democrat party or the press will be willing to risk being calling a racist or an islamophobe by trying to stop.

Then again given the antisemitic, anti Israel and anti-christian turn the left in the US has taken, and where the Democrats will be in 20 years, perhaps, regardless of the short terms cost the selection of congressman Ellison is entirely appropriate.

After all why shouldn’t the leader of the party of the left represent not the image they want to project, but what they actually are.
