Anti-Gun Ellison Perfect Choice for Democrats to Continue Alienating Flyover Voters

By David Codrea

Ellison wants the job. Gun owners should say “Go for it.”

USA – -( “Meet the Rising Democrat That Bernie Sanders Wants to Lead the DNC,” ATTN:, the “issues-driven media company” aimed at inspiring “mobile-first” millenials  to “social change” (i.e., “progressive” propagandists), urges readers. That would be Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, who has thrown his hat in the ring to lead the DemocraticNtional Committee. Elizabeth Warren and Chuck Schumer are on board with that, and per an earlier report in The Huffington Post, Ellison also has Harry Reid’s endorsement.

Great. An unreconstructed socialist and the DNC old guard – all from “safe” districts in blue states – think they can establish national political supremacy by installing a figurehead that screams “progressivism.” The irony is, their motive is to maintain the status quo as far as their own political fortunes are concerned, that is (keeping in mind that it’s a relative term), to be “conservative.”

They’re showing their desperation. They’re also showing they haven’t learned a thing about the people who opposed their agenda in last Tuesday’s election, and are set to repeat all the miscalculations and blunders that led to such a sweeping electoral rout.

Good.  Because that means they’ll double down on their opposition-building tactic of insulting Americans who reject their control über alles agenda. They’ll continue to smear us as haters and xenophobes, strengthening the resentment and resolve among the flyover electorate to tell them to get bent.

So we’ll be called racists and xenophobes, because Ellison is not only black, he’s a Muslim. It doesn’t occur to “progressives” that most will oppose him because of the policies he advances: citizen disarmament; ginning up race-based grievances; continued cultural terraforming via a “pathway to citizenship” for illegal aliens, and accelerated and unvettable “refugee resettlement” from Islamic regions where beliefs irreconcilable with those of the West are the norm.

And Ellison will lead the chorus, repeating his condemnation of patriotic Americans who believe in the Constitution and Bill of Rights as members of “extremist anti-government movements.”

True to the “For ‘progressives,’ every day is Opposite Day” maxim, he’s projecting. Shall we examine who the one with “extremist” ties really is?

Ellison is a leader of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, co-founded by Sanders. And the Caucus (with Ellison specifically identified) maintains “ties” with the Communist Party USA and “close ties” with another “progressive” group, the Democratic Socialists of America, the domestic arm of Socialist International.

The DSA devoted a page on their website (until they took it down to try to hide it—this link goes to the Internet Archive record, which they can’t erase) to hymns glorifying their “struggle.” The following examples should be of special interest, since the people they’re talking about are pretty much you and me:


That ought to play well in the Red States. And do you think it might have something to do with the Congressional Progressive Caucus’ obsession with controlling your guns?

Ellison is the perfect choice to be the new face of the Democratic National Committee, and it’s in the interests of people happy with last Tuesday’s results to do what we can to encourage his election. He’ll give “progressive” true believers what they want in terms of optics, the same out-of-touch old guard will still hold the reins of real party power, nothing will change in terms of reach exceeding grasp, and flyover voters will continue to be incentivized to oppose lying (and truth be known, provincial) leftists smearing us as bigots and hicks.

So go #KeithEllison!

And stop screaming, Howard Dean – you’re going to spoil everything.

UPDATE: A reader reminds me of another reason Ellison’s “leadership” will ensure a radical agenda sure to end in failure:

Look how many states trump won by narrow margins: North Carolina, wisconsin, michigan, florida, Pennsylvania, etc. He also narrowly lost MN, NH and NV. The DNC must think that gun owners did not defeat hillary in all of the above states, or that putting someone in charge of the dnc who called for repealing the second amendment wont put the three narrow losses in trump’s corner in four years. Even worse for the dems, ten us senators from the dem party will be running for reelection in states trump won, with only one republican running in a state hillary won.… Read more »


“The dnc is making the job of the goa and nra way too easy!” I agree trumped. I’m no conspiracy theorists, but it makes one wonder what’s up their collective lying, cheating, stealing ,anti everything American sleeves?? Is it possible that, all those highly educated elitist are that stupid? Maybe Mr. Codrea will “uncover”, and pass on to his loyal readers, any ulterior motives.


I think it is just like how they didn’t think trump had a chance. They surround themselves in echo chambers and literally do not know any real Americans who live outside NYC/DC/LA, etc. They don’t understand how their views on guns are the crazy fringe, not the other way around. That is why they don’t think ellison would hurt the dems outside of california and ny. It is a giant case of confirmation bias.


I double checked and trump only lost Minnesota by 1.4%, and he did not even try to win the state until the weekend before the election with one rally there. He only lost Maine by three points, Nevada by two, and new Hampshire by less than half of a percentage point. The dnc seems totally oblivious to how the Electoral College works. Trump had a blowout win with 306 votes, and all of the above states will just add to his column with a gun banner running the dnc. I guess they think as long as they win California and… Read more »


not only is Ellison all you mentioned, David Codrea, he is also a liar. WHen he was preparing to be sworn in to office, he demanded to be sworn in with his hand on the koran. And, not just ANY old koran. He obtained the copy that Thomas Jefferson had acquired when he was President, claiming Jefferson respected islam and wanted to study it to better appreciate it. Well, Ellison was sort of correct in this taquiyya move…. Jefferson DID indeed respect islam…. as a political and economic force. WHY? Because there were moslem pirates harrassing and destroying OUR merchant… Read more »


David, Here is two snips from a very informative article that was recently posted that deal with the problem of the Muslim Brotherhood and how it has infected our government.. Cruz’s bill, the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2015-16, identifies the Brotherhood and three of its offshoots, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations and Islamic Society of North America, as a terrorist organization. The FBI raided a Muslim Brotherhood safe house in 2004 and discovered key documents that laid out the strategic plan for subjugating America under Shariah. The document, “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for… Read more »

P E R F E C T !!!! THIS IS the guy we need to ‘help’ the Democrats regain their rightful position in America. Wish them all the best…..!! 🙂 🙂


I can not understand the thinking of the progressive left and the trash they scatter. IF this country is so bad, according to them, then it would make sense for them to go where their ideology is accepted rather than to fight the rest of us all the time.
If they like the squaller of the mid east then move there. I’m sure they would be welcomed by ISIS. It doesn’t make any sense to try to bring all of us into their rejected basket of Clinton.


This guy is only another fox in the american political hen house. Muslims who pretend to be americans are waiting to follow the Korans instruction to lie until they are in a position to control.

Junk Bin

nothing like having a anti american, progressive, liveral, muslime, woman oppressor leading the Democrat Party.
They are finally completely out od the closet


This guy Ellison is exactly what’s wrong with the democrats! He is just another Muslim brotherhood trash! The democrats are getting in bed with totally the wrong people and going totally the wrong direction!

Pistol Pete

I hope they never learn anything. I don’t like people white or black that want to take my freedoms away. keith Ellison being a muslim he will take away your freedom of worship because he believe only his false god should be worshiped


I live in Minnesota and Ellison is an extreme leftist with all the sickening BS that the left spews daily. He represents the inner city and doesn’t care about anyone out state.

Of course he has endorsements from Schumer, Warren, and Reid. They’re all of the same ilk. They want a government that controls the populace. We’re all supposed to be compliant sheep that follow without thinking. No thanks!

@RA and JRA, The Democrats are betting heavily that the non-urban areas of the U.S. will not be able to turn out a greater number of voters that the cities will. It always has been an ag verses urban conflict. The things that benefit the cities do not benefit the people that live in the country. Cities are concentrated populations, cheap and easy to campaign in. Rural areas are hard to group up and talk to. So rural people don’t get the attention to their issues, and so refrain from voting. City voters and city issues dominate the entire country.


Correct.. so far. But I’m convinced a LOT of rural voters have got to the tipping point by now, and they got away from their tractors and workshops and VOTED this time. Like never before. I think that sleeping beast just may well have come out of hibernation.

I also think it is significant that all the city voters together could not muster enough votes to seat their corrupt and decripit darling Hillie……. wonder how mamy will simply not feel their vote was worth anything last week, and will stay home for the next few go-rounds……


Correct T. And let’s not forget the Evangelical vote this time around. The Christians in this country, urban or rural, have had enough of the godlessness instituted by the progressives and the leftist elite. I believe we have hope, albeit a sliver in some eyes, to redirect the the future of our Country. God Bless Anerica!

@JRA, Where in MN? I grew up in Blooming Prairie. The one of the first settlers asked, “Where the bloody heck are we, anyhow?” Someone answered, “Right in the middle of the bloomin prairie.” The name stuck.

The government and it’s minions do want you to be a sheep. That is one reason why they push the idiotic “sheep dog” meme with regard to cops. Remember, sheep dogs prey upon the sheep just like the wolf. Don’t be a canine or a sheep, be a man.

Randall Anderson

Yep, I thought it strange also. Rejected because they are to far to the left and devisive, their reaction is to go further to the left and to divide us further. Brilliant!!!

Just shows they didn’t learn anything, and they are still only talking to themselves and listening to the media. Only thing different, is the poor are starting to realize the DNS doesn’t represent them, no matter race or religion.
