This coming from a US Congressman, and he happens to be the ONLY Muslim in Congress. What a surprise.
Are other Dems listening to this? Who will come out and condemn this idiot’s comments?
He basically tells 300 people that Bush orchestrated 9/11, killed thousands of his own people so he could gain the ultimate fascistic dictatorial power that he supposedly has right now in the same way Hitler took power after the burning of the Reichstag in 1933.
It’s one thing to hear this from the Loose Change freaks and the KosKids in the liberal blogosphere…
but this is a United States Congressman for God’s sake!
My question is….
With all these intelligent democrats out there who think Bush is such an un-intelligent, dumb, moronic president, then how can they possibly believe that Bush could orchestrate something as huge as 9/11.
The Democrat leaders better do some damage control before this guy gets out of control.
from the Telegraph
America’s first Muslim congressman has provoked outrage by apparently comparing President George W Bush to Adolf Hitler and hinting that he might have been responsible for the September 11 attacks.
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.”
