CAIR's candidate wins the Democratic primary

Ex[ Nation of Islam member Keith Ellison has won the Democratic primary in Minnesota's 5th district, and now has an excellent chance of being CAIR's first congressman.

I originally reported on this story and on Ellison's extensive ties with CAIR here.

As I also predicted, the MSM is gushing over the idea of Ellison being the first Muslim congressman elected, and I'm sure the DNC will not be far behind.

Two quotes to keep in mind:

"Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth." -Omar Awad, co-founder of CAIR

"I wouldn't want to create the impression that I wouldn't like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future.." Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR spokesperson.

It's a sad day for Democrats. This will just give the Republicans more ammo to throw at the dems come november.

Frankly, I think they deserve it.

I'm by no means a knee jerk Republican, and there are some worthy and sensible Democrats left inthe party, but they're few and far between.

The cheif issue of our time is the war against jihad...and I would no sooner vote for someone like Chuck Grassley or Arlen Spector than I would for Russ Feingold or Howard Dean.

I agree that most of the dems have no will to defeat jihad. Like when Howard Dean said "that we can't win this war", that created more jihadists than Abu Gharib because it shows that a top American politician doesn't think we can win. It's like in Vietnam, the NVA and Viet Cong lived off the anti-war sentiment. If the majority of the public was behind the war by 68, they probably would have given up, IMO. I'm not saying that we should blindly wage war, but it's still something worth thinking about, but I digress.

I'm in favor of a new Manhattan Project in partnership with the private sector, and an international effort to find alternative energy sources. Usually, I'm sceptical of huge government programs, but by this point, it's a national security problem, and national security trumps any other concerns. I would be willing to vote for even the most weasly democrat if they were sufficiently in favor of this, as eliminating our dependence on saudi oil would go a very long way in winning the "war on jihad" as you like to call it.

I mostly agree...but any Democrat elected would have to be major strong on defense as it's unlikely we would be left inpeace to develop the project you suggest.

Otherwise, I concur.
