Keith Ellison: Bush like Hitler

Left: Congressman Keith Ellison

Bush like Hitler, says first Muslim in Congress


Addressing a gathering of atheists in his home state of Minnesota, Keith Ellison, a Democrat, compared the 9/11 atrocities to the destruction of the Reichstag, the German parliament, in 1933. This was probably burned down by the Nazis in order to justify Hitler's later seizure of emergency powers.

"It's almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that," Mr Ellison said. "After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it, and it put the leader [Hitler] of that country in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted."

To applause from his audience of 300 members of Atheists for Human Rights, Mr Ellison said he would not accuse the Bush administration of planning 9/11 because "you know, that's how they put you in the nut-ball box - dismiss you".

Vice-President Dick Cheney's stance of refusing to answer some questions from Congress was "the very definition of totalitarianism, authoritarianism and dictatorship", he added.

Comment: I can't believe the this guy got elected! Congressman Keith Ellison, Fifth District of Minnesota. Interesting that the Star Tribune has not reported this! I will update this posting if I see it in the Star Tribune!

  1. Keith Ellison compares President Bush to Hitler, and then pretends that he didn't say it, lest he be considered an occupant of the "nut-ball box." Ellison is more than an occupant; he is one of the architects!

    He consorts with people who hate the president and hate America. How he got elected I do not understand. He is an embarrassment to the citizens of Minnesota.
