Minnesota GOP Apologizes for Inflammatory Ellison Post

The Minnesota 7th Congressional District Republican Party was criticized for posting an Islamophobic image of Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn.. (Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call file photo)

Minnesota Republicans found themselves in trouble after one local party posted an Islamophobic image of Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison on its Facebook page.

The image, posted on Monday, showed Ellison on a turkey hunt with Democratic Rep. Collin Peterson, and text at the bottom called Ellison “Minnesota’s head Muslim goat humper” before asking, ‘Does this mean Muslim refugees coming to Western Minnesota?”

The post also called Ellison, who is the first Muslim elected to Congress, an “anti-Semite, anti-white, racist and fascist.”

Jennifer Carnahan, chairwoman of the Minnesota Republican Party, told the Star Tribune in Minneapolis that the person, who she wouldn’t identify, who posted “has been identified ... and they no longer represent our party. They resigned immediately.”

Carnahan, who was adopted from South Korea, was elected chairwoman of the state party on Saturday and used her election as a sign of diversity in the GOP.

Yes, but Ellison IS anti-white, fascist, racist and anti-semitic. Crazy too. A fitting leader for the RATs.
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. H. L. Mencken
