Ellison Demands on Amazon Show Guns aren’t Only Things Collectivists Would ‘Control’

Keith wants to sing us all a song of the Revolution. See lyrics, below. (Keith Ellison Facebook photos)

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- “Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) today sent a letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos inquiring about Amazon profiting from the sale of products and content from groups identified as neo-Nazis and white nationalist hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC),” a press release by the congressman’s office claimed Tuesday.

“Amazon’s practice of hosting the sale of hateful literature, toys, and music spreads and normalizes hate ideologies,” Ellison’s letter charged.

Disregarding for a moment that censorship of literature and music that government officials want to see suppressed is the hallmark of a totalitarian, or that book-burning is something associated with real Nazis, we should also consider the source. Per PJ Media:

“[T]he Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) settled a defamation suit filed by Muslim reformer Maajid Nawaz, whom the SPLC maligned as an ‘anti-Muslim extremist.’ On Tuesday, PJ Media reported that no fewer than 60 organizations are considering similar lawsuits against the SPLC. The organization is still facing a lawsuit from D. James Kennedy Ministries (DJKM), a Christian organization falsely labeled a ‘hate group.’”

“47 Nonprofit Leaders Denounce the Southern Poverty Law Center's ‘Hate List' in Open Letter to the Media,” a report from a year earlier documented. That one also recalled the story of “a terrorist attack inspired by the SPLC's hate list … Floyd Lee Corkins II entered the Family Research Council offices in Washington, D.C. and shot and badly wounded its building manager, Leo Johnson, who stopped his intended killing spree … Corkins intended to kill everyone in the building, and then go on to terrorize additional organizations.”

Another point to consider for someone like Ellison who claims to be a socialist against Nazis: Even though they’ll argue loudly against it, the truth is they are (once again) lying to deceive the ignorant. Aside from deriving the name from “Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei” (the National Socialist German Workers' Party), there is this inconvenient truth:

“It is now clear beyond all reasonable doubt that Hitler and his associates believed they were socialists, and that others, including democratic socialists, thought so too. The title of National Socialism was not hypocritical,” author George G. Watson documented in “Hitler and the Socialist Dream.”

By way of credentials, Watson was a “scholar, literary critic, historian, a fellow of St John’s College and professor of English at Cambridge University,” who, rather than being some “far right” apologist, was also, incidentally, “an active member of the Liberal Party [who] in his will … left £950,000 to the Liberal Democrats.”

It’s curious that “socialist” Ellison isn’t also putting the squeeze on Amazon to get rid of its communist literature and merchandise. Talk about an ideology of hate and genocide!

It’s just not surprising considering affiliations with the Democrat Socialists of America.

Ellison is a leader of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, co-founded by Bernie 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:

Well, are you?

Here’s something else that shouldn’t surprise anyone: They’re obsessed with “controlling” your guns. That’s because it’s not about controlling guns, it’s about controlling us, including the information they would “allow” us to access. Just like totalitarians have always done.

    in reading everyone’s post.
    history IS THE BEST TEACHER, people either learn from it, or REPEAT IT.
    the way things are lining up today we are fixing to REPEAT IT.
    and there is not enough space here to explain WHY?
    also watch for the MIDTERMS for things to get HOTTER, and being from Alabama, i can tell all here.
    THE SPLC WAS CREATED BY COMMUNIST JEWS, and STILL RUN BY THEM, AND THEY ARE A TOTAL HATE GROUP OF ANYTHING DO DO WITH WHITE PEOPLE.

    It concerns me that some seem to believe that only a Christian can serve in the Gov’t. Wild Bill asserts the oath is only for the public and not for the taker. That seems absurd. It’s for both. I do not agree with Ellison’s politics, nor his religion, but believe he should take the oath on a book of his choice, something he believes in. Again, there is NO religious test or requirement for being elected and serving. What a person does when serving is what counts. If they upset the apple cart too much, they’ll be out next election.… Read more »

    All that is well and good until you realize that the creed of Islam commands the murder or enslavement of ‘infidels,’ commands ‘taqiya,’ which is the act of lying and deceiving the infidel in whatever manner necessary to gain dominion over him, and regards the United States of America as “The Great Satan” that must be destroyed by whatever means available and at whatever cost. Ellison professes to be a Muslim, a follower of Islam, and to swear his oath on the Qu’ran is to affirm its command to destroy us. Are you really sure we should accept his “religion”… Read more »

But saying “Not all Muslims are jihadists” is also a trap: 77% of the Muslims surveyed in the world said they hoped for their communities to adopt Sharia Law, and they sent money to support the Jihad, even though the… Read more »

What I mean by this, is that right now constitutionalist on the vast majority of weapons, the vast majority of ammunition, and we even have a better level of training, tactical understanding, and of course within our ranks happened to be… Read more »

    Norman Thomas, the six-time Socialist Party candidate for U.S. President, said the following in a 1944 speech: “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism,’ they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened…. I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.” And, today, the Republican Party RINOs have adopted it as well.

    Hello again Donald, Sadly, your statement that I expressed that all Republicans are Rinos, is not true. I stated that there are many Republicans who are rhinos, and that their agendas are in Real World terms, the same in outcome as Democrats; it’ll just take them longer to destroy our nation. Further, your implication that I want Civil War is wholly erroneous! I do not want to see a Civil War in my lifetime, but the sad fact is that politically, culturally, and as a society, we are now in the same dire situation, in which we found ourselves in… Read more »

    All that sounds good in this message, but in your previous message you said “There’s a strong school of thought that most conservatives, that is most constitutionalists, including myself, given the current state of political Affairs in the nation, which most closely resemble the situation in 1860, that it would be better for Democrats to take control of both houses and the presidency. The result would be a Civil War sooner, rather than later.” That sounds a lot like a “civil war sooner rather than later” … “would be better.” Also, do I need to point out that the Democrats… Read more »

    I think perhaps you are misconstruing my position as much as you claim I am misconstruing yours: “This is why I stated quite clearly the Civil War will ensue, it is not a matter of ‘if’, it is simply a matter of when. I must reiterate that I do not want to see the Civil War take place, for the same reasons you described, the utter destruction of our nation physically.” I agree, and like you, I believe it will be forced upon us by the socialists. But I do not want to see it “sooner rather than later” because… Read more »

    I know well the past work of SPLC’s founding member Mark Potok, who from inception made it crystal clear that “justice” meant something entirely different to him and his chorts than to those of us who live by and with justice. His was indeed a ruse, using the convenience of racial issues to gather support and create a brand. SPLC has never been anything more than a blackboard pointer to identify targets for it’s fabricated lists of “hate groups”. One of the greatest ironies in this is that SPLC lies squarely in the definition of a “hate group”, only focused… Read more »

    Donald, I should have provided a caveat when referring to myself as a pragmatist, in that my pragmatism is personally based in everyday life: if something works I use it in maintain it, if it doesn’t work I jettison it, based upon empirical results. When it comes to political issues, I refuse to allow my pragmatism to supersede my moral and ethical premise he’s, upon which I base my actions, thoughts, and points of view. In real-world terms, there is no real difference between a Rino and a Progressive; the former is destroying the nation more slowly than the latter,… Read more »

We must be completely solitary. Instead of firearms we will use a gallon of gasoline, here, a hammer, there, or a junker car, on the way to the Congressional lunch counter .

    I’ve heard all this before, James, and I regard it as extremely foolish. The most foolish thing you could have said is the suggestion that a civil war might be better sooner or later. Under no circumstance is a civil war better than anything any time. It will destroy our country; it will destroy the principles our nation was founded to preserve and protect, and it would be entirely unrecoverable short of a Divine Miracle at least as monumental as the one — or I should say the many — that allowed our nation to be founded, the first, only,… Read more »

    Don’t forget to take into account Ellison’s history…

    when he was to take his oath of office he demanded he be allowed to use a copy of the moslem book the quran. AND he made a big deal out of the provenance of ths specific copy he wanted to use, that of Thomas Jefferson, lying to us about who and why he (Jefferson) came into possession of it.
    We all know the meaning of the word “taqiyya”. If you don’t, take some time and learn about it. Ellison is a master at it.

    Because to have any meaning the oath of office must be sworn to the God of creation, the One who made us. The only thing that is greater than we are. Since the god of the koran is no god at all, made no one, and nothing, and has no authority, nor is he a higher being, then to swear to that whatever it is is not to swear at all. Might as well swear to the neighbour’s cat.

    @Larry bricky, He may as well have taken his oath on the Book of Aesop’s Fables! The oath of office taken in public, and before the public is for the public. The oath is not for him!
    The oath has to have meaning to We the People, who he is supposed to serve. It is a demonstration of sincerity, honesty, and patriotism to the public. The Holy Bible has that meaning. The koran is … paper.
    I can not hardly believe that anyone would have to ask. Are you that far away from the meanings of our system?

    The oath should be sworn on whatever the individual believes in. The Constitution says there is no religious requirement for service. What about an elected Atheist? If the Bible is meaningless to him/her why use it. If a Baha’i was elected/selected why would it be wrong to swear on the Writings that he/she believes are from God, every bit as much as a Christian believes in the Bible. The nation is getting more and more diverse and we’re going to have to adapt at least a little bit. The real test is what does the oath mean to the individual… Read more »

    The ceremony is for the people to observe. The oath taker is making a demonstration of patriotism, loyalty to the Constitution, and honesty to the people. It has to mean something to the people. The ceremony is not for the oath taker. Ellison knew that he was slapping us in the face.
    As to our nation adapting, the new diverse are supposed to adapt to us. The libtards want more foreigners and encourage the destruction of our well planned system. You support that destruction.
