Keith Ellison says Herman Cain flunks Pledge of Allegiance

Herman Cain wants loyalty oaths for Muslims.
Herman Cain tried to put a moderating gloss on his anti-Muslim paranoia the other night during the Republican presidential debate, but he's pretty up front about his bigotry. Any Muslim wanting to serve in a Cain administration would have to take a separate loyalty oath to the Constitution, he says.

Never mind that Article 6 says, "No religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States."

Cain is also asserts that Rep. Keith Ellison, a Muslim, isn't sufficiently patriotic because he didn't take his oath of office on a Bible, and Ellison's getting tired of Muslims serving as Cain's campaign fodder.

Rep. Keith Ellison is sworn into office on Thomas Jefferson's Qur'an.
Today, he went on MSNBC to suggest that Cain is flunking Pledge of Allegiance 101:

"The Pledge of Allegiance said 'and liberty and justice for all,'" Ellison said [via Daily Caller]. "'All' means all, and doesn't mean 'except one group or another.'"

Unless you're Herman Cain, and you want to be President of the United States.

And we have Rep Ellison with his own brand of economic and religious bigotry.  He accepts VIP trips to Mecca so he doesn't have to mix with the stink of his fellow believers, is ushered through side doors, isn't 'required' to show penance on his knees in the square, has a personal sacrifice arranged for him, etc, etc.

Cain is my man!!!!Unfortunately the Republican elites are not taking him seriously.Funny how the TEA Party is. In a recent TEA Party meeting I was at, we took a "straw poll" of who should be president.1 = Cain2 = Bachmann3 = Paul

Wow Kirk, just when I thought you weren't a jerk... you think religious discrimination is good? You think this 100% symbolic gesture of a separate oath for Muslims is a good idea? Like somehow a separate oath is going to make someone who wants to turn against us rethink their agenda? So you don't like the constitution, huh? Just trying to clarify what about Cain you like.

Barring anything weird, you'll be holding your nose and voting Romney come next November.

Ellisons trips to Mecca, their funding source, and itinerary are all a matter of public record.  You'll believe it if you bother to look it up yourself.

Fire up youtube and take a look at Cain

No that's a bad idea.  All for one.  Nothing special for anyone.  Not grants!  Not scholarships!Not entrance exams!Not hiring practices!

Anything special for anyone because of what color they are, or what gender they are, or what religion they are, is discrimination!

I should hope the Republicans learned something from the last presidential election.Whatever the liberal press praises, as "the best candidate",  do the opposite. 

Please not Romney, please not Romney, please not Romney.Liberals want him because Romney takes the sting out of Obamacare.   They're one of the same...

Nothing special for anyone unless you are a Muslim, then you have have to take a magical loyalty oath that makes sure you don't betray the USA.    Think how bad that Muslim terrorist will feel when he has to break his oath to betray the United States.   Everyone knows you can take an Al Queda member at his word.

For a while I thought that T-Paw had a shot, but he just can't seem to break out of the "boring" mold and Bachmann keeps stealing his thunder.
