MUSLIM CONGRESSMAN WAS FARRAKHAN SPOKESMAN

From two different articles: (40R)
Democratic congressman, U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the first Muslim ever elected to Congress, who took little time to insult the program’s host.“ Quite frankly, you are the worst excuse for a journalist I’ve ever seen,” Ellison told Hannity at the outset. “What you just displayed was not journalism. It was yellow journalism. It wasn’t anything close to try to tell the American people what’s really going on. It’s just shocking to me.”
Hannity opened up a segment on President Obama’s tactics regarding budget issues by saying, “Our alarmist in chief, President Panic himself, he did not feel the need to be at the White House today, nor did he think it was important enough to visit Capitol Hill and try to hammer out a bipartisan solution to the mess that he himself has put the country in.

Ellison accused Hannity of “Yellow Journalism”, “Yellow journalism?” responded Hannity. “To play Obama in his own words is yellow journalism? Hannity also asked the Democrat whether America’s massive debt was “immoral.” “You are immoral!”

Muslim congressman was Farrakhan spokesman, Evidence indicates he acted as ‘representative’ for Nation of Islam. He is still unable to explain evidence that his association with the anti-Semitic, anti-white Nation of Islam was much closer than he has claimed. Newspaper reports from the 1990s indicate Ellison was known as a supporter and activist for Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam, even speaking on behalf of the controversial group as a “representative.”
In 2006, Ellison wrote a letter to the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota & the Dakotas claiming he had never been a Nation of Islam member. Immediately after he was sworn in to Congress in 2006, he posed for photographs with then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with their hands on a copy of the Quran.
In the letter to the Jewish group, Ellison further claimed that his association with the Nation of Islam was limited to an 18-month period in which he was helping to organize the Minnesota contingent at the 1995 Million-Man March.
Contradictions
Ellison’s claims are contradicted by the newspaper finds, which place him as a Nation of Islam “representative” in 1997 and supporter in 1998. In 1997, he delivered a statement for the Nation of Islam, apparently serving as the group’s spokesman while being described as a Nation of Islam “representative.”
The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported the episode Feb. 3, 1997. The case involved Joanne Jackson, the executive director of the Minneapolis Initiative Against Racism, or MIAR, who found herself in hot water for controversial comments about Jews.
Jackson was a Nation of Islam supporter who had been quoted as stating, “Jews are among the most racist white people I know.” The Star Tribune reported “the appearance of Twin Cities representatives of Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam at the MIAR’s board meeting on Monday.” Among the “representatives” was Ellison, according to the report. The article said Ellison read comments on behalf of the Nation of Islam.
The Tribune noted Ellison used his religious name of Muhammad in reading the statement to the board in defense of Jackson. Here is why we support Ms. Jackson: She is correct about Minister Farrakhan. He is not a racist. He is also not an anti-Semite.” Ellison also said Farrakhan’s representatives in the Twin Cities have a “sincere desire to talk over the tensions between the black and Jewish communities with reason and truth.”
WND also found an April 5, 1998, article in the Star Tribune describing Ellison as a well-known Nation of Islam supporter. “Ellison, a newcomer to DFL politics, is well-known in the black community as the former head of the Legal Rights Center and a supporter of Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam,” the article said. Ellison’s affinity for the Nation of Islam traces back at least to his days as a law student in 1989 and 1990.
Ellison had used the names Keith X Ellison and Keith Ellison-Muhammad during his student days, writing columns in a student newspaper that defended Farrakhan against accusations of anti-Semitism. In another student column, Ellison called for a separate nation for blacks. Minnesota Public Radio reported in 2006, during Ellison’s first run for Congress, that he was also a member of the Black Law Student Association and was criticized for sponsoring anti-Semitic speakers at the University of Minnesota. Dan Weiss, a University of Minnesota Law School classmate of Ellison’s, told MPR at the time, “My recollections of Keith are of that person who was very much in support of the Nation of Islam and their messages they tried to convey to the larger community.”
Ellison later promoted Farrakhan’s Million Man March, appearing on stage for the speech of Nation of Islam activist and spokesman Khalid Abdul Muhammad.
