Chris Fields: "Keith Ellison is militantly anti-America"

Fields, in a City Pages interview, said of Ellison: "Looking at his career and the things that he's done, his career life and politics are the result of a teenage rebellion gone awry."

Chris Fields' chances of beating Keith Ellison this November are roughly the same as Kurt Bills' chances of winning an Emmy for best narration -- in other words, it ain't happening.

Nonetheless, Fields is taking the fight to Ellison, first in a City Pages interview last month and now in a new fundraising message where describes Ellison as "militantly anti-America."

Here's part of Fields' message (emphasis his):
Ellison square.JPG
Dear Patriot,

While I was fighting on a battlefield in Iraq, my opponent was doing everything he could to cut funding for the war and the soldiers fighting it.

Keith Ellison is militantly anti-America. He attacked the Pledge of Allegiance, voted countless times to throw our troops serving in harm's way to the wolves and teamed up with Barney Frank to destroy the banking industry. Not surprisingly, he's the proud co-chairman of the radical Congressional Progressive Caucus.

Is this the type of man you want representing you in Congress? It's not who I want! That's why, after retiring from the Marine Corps less than one year ago, I'm challenging Keith Ellison and his anti-American agenda.

Will you stand with me to bring common sense, American values back to Washington? Please... make a contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more to my campaign.
Tim Murphy, in a Mother Jones piece about the "anti-America" line, reminds us that before we dismiss Fields as a doesn't-have-a-chance fringe candidate, we should keep in mind that he secured the MNGOP's backing.

"Fields doesn't stand a chance against Ellison; Democrats hold a 22-point edge in the distict and Cook Political Report rates the seat a 'solid D.' But he's still the representative of the state GOP in this race, and was endorsed by the party convention," Murphy writes.

Finally someone is standing up to Keith Ellison and his idiotic islamo marxist nonsense.  I'm always blown away at the positions this paper and others will contort themselves into just to make Keith Ellison look sane.  If you are hateful towards Christians, Jews, or people who are outside the jonestown like obama cult, This paper will do anything to make you look peace loving, balanced and above all cool.

Here is what Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is trying to warn you all about that have several feet layers of sand over their heads.

*

From Our State - Not Iraq & it's borders. 

Keith Ellison's primary responsibility Islamists'

*

in his two terms, he has established a disturbing record of promoting and defending radical Islamists who hide beneath a veneer of moderation.

*

In 2009, Ellison spoke at three fundraising dinners for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)

*

appeared with CAIR officials at events on health care reform and celebrating the Muslim Eid holiday.

*

Ellison took to the House floor to rebuke four colleagues who called for an investigation of CAIR and whether it was targeting offices tied to committees on the judiciary, homeland security and intelligence to place interns.

*

According to the book Muslim Mafia, internal CAIR records show the group sought to infiltrate those congressional offices.

*

CAIR deserves special scrutiny because of documented proof that it was founded by members of a U.S.-based Hamas support network created by the Muslim Brotherhood.

*

The Brotherhood is an Egyptian religious/political movement which aims to spread Islamic law throughout the world. 

*

The Hamas support by CAIR founders documented in the terror-financing trial of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development prompted the FBI to cut off communications with CAIR in 2008.

*

CAIR's access reportedly could be restored if it pledged not to support Hamas. CAIR officials have rejected that pledge.

*

however, Ellison praised one very questionable Islamist role model: Hamza Yusuf, president and chairman of the Zaytuna Institute in California.

*

Ellison described Yusuf as one of several "respected religious authorities who converted to Islam." 

*

Speaking just two days before the September 11 attacks, Yusuf warned: "We saw the destruction of Russia after its invasion of Afghanistan,

*

This country [America] unfortunately has a great…tribulation coming to it. And much of it is already here, yet people are too illiterate to read the writing on the wall."

And they fell-two days later.

Chris:

You continue to prove through your writings and behavior that you are at best below average in your ability to communicate, lead, problem solve for the 5th district.  The inconsistency, the anger, the sensationalist verbiage result in me being very suspicious of your motivations, ability, and desires.  

 

I personally do not believe that you are prepared as a mature adult to lead anyone let alone the 5th district.  Your talk screams of emotional unhealthiness.  For this reason, I actually end up of feeling sorry for you.  You are too much of a hot head, too inconsistent, too immature to glean my vote.  The educated, diverse female voters, in which I am a part, find your personal approach to this election reprehensible.  

 

God be with us if you are elected.

Fields may not have a chance of winning, but that is not because of Ellison, but because he is running as a Republican in a highly Democratic district.  This does not mean that victory is impossible, if he is determined to win, but it will probably take a few election cycles to oust Ellison.

By all means, Embrace Keith.

 

You don't have any sisters, daughters or wives correct? You're not gay either right?

Oh that's right Keith can be a bigoted, racist, because he has a D after his name.

Take this for what it is worth. Another bitter, angry Leftist lashing out at anyone who dares hold a different view. But, there is something VERY hypocritical here. Ellison calls Romney “heartless” yet, Ellison openly embraces many Leftist ideals that have caused untold misery throughout the last 100 plus years.  Also consider Ellison’s ties to CAIR, and Hamas. And his other radical stands HMMMM. Talk about heartless, how about Ellison being gaga over the Nation of Islam?

In 1992, Ellison defended Sharif Willis—a previously convicted murderer—charged with helping a group of gangsters calling themselves the “Vice Lords” to kill a local cop named Jerry Haaf. What was Ellison’s argument for Wilis’s innocence? Ellison organized public protests against the Minneapolis police, claiming that the police department was waging “a campaign of slander,” in order to scare white people into having the city hire more police officers.

One year later, Ellison protested outside Willis’ trial, screaming, “we don’t get no justice, you don’t get no peace.”

Ellison may have gotten away with his butchering of the English language’s grammatical rules, but his client Willis did not get away with murder. He was sent to federal prison for 20 years, on several counts of gun- and drug-related charges.

Other cop-killers that Ellison has promoted and defended over the years includeMumia Abu Jamal and Assata Shakur.

Having failed to free Sharif Willis from the clutches of the white man’s “campaign of slander,” Ellison became involved with the Nation of Islam, promoting Louis Farrakhan’s “Million Man March” and appearing on stage for the “thundering, racist diatribe” stylings of Khalid Abdul Muhammad.

Ellison campaigned on behalf of Malcom X’s daughter, arguing publicly that Qubilah Shabazz was innocent of murder, and that the FBI was trying to kill Farrakhan.

Two years later, Ellison added the surname “Muhammed” to his repertoire, serving as a local Nation of Islam spokesman. During a brief controversy regarding Minnesota Initiative Against Racism official Joanne Jackson’s comment that “Jews are among the most racist white people [she] knew,” Ellison declared that “we stand by the truth contained in the remarks attributed to [Ms. Jackson], and by her right to express her views without sanction.”

Over the years, Ellison has held or appeared at fundraisers and speaking engagements for multiple organizations associated with Islamic extremists, including the Council for American-Islamic Relations, the Muslim American Society, theIslamic Circle of America, the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim Public Affairs Council, and so on.

Wishing Chris the best of luck. Unfortunately the majority of voters in the 5th only know how to check the D box on a ballot.

All, 

 

So far your comments are less than inspiring.

 

As far as being a sacrificial lamb...I don't think so.  

 

We've raised over $100k because people are really tired of the antics of Keith Ellison. He comes with too much baggage and seeks to divide rather than unite.

 

He doesnt have a record of improving the lives of the people of the 5th C.D.  His record is a record of failure.  Washington is broken and Keith Ellison is not part of the solution.  Come to grips with that so we can move on.  

 

Its time to Come Together!

"we should keep in mind that he secured the MNGOP's backing."

 

So did the previous three "sacrificial lambs" that the MN GOP threw at Ellison. How did that work out? All three are marked by their own Party as losers, and their careers are over.

 

But now that the MN GOP is broke and in disarray, somehow their "backing" is even more formidable?

 

Fields can say whatever he wants, but in a few short months he'll be as memorable and influential as Joel Demos. Who's that? The last bozo to run against Ellison.

 

All that the MN GOP is doing is proving that they have no sane, reasonable candidates willing to commit political suicide by running against Ellison.

 @chrisfields "He comes with too much baggage and seeks to divide rather than unite."

 

And calling someone "militantly anti-American" doesn't "seek to divide rather than unite"?

 

"As far as being a sacrificial lamb...I don't think so."

 

Well, you would say that.

The record of losing Republican candidates being given a second chance is really dismal. There's Boschwitz, and possibly Quist (though he's yet to make it out the primary). None of the previous three candidates to run against Ellison have any stature in the MN GOP. The odds are pretty heavy that no one in the Party will return your phone calls after the election if you lose, and the odds that you will win are remote. That's what makes you a "sacrificial lamb".

 

"Its time to Come Together!"

...by scapegoating Ellison for every problem in the District, and questioning the loyalty of anyone who would vote for him. Yes,  "come together" and weed out the "anti-American" Americans in our midst, in the name of "common sense".

 @chrisfields Sorry Fields, I know who find you your idea of "inspiring", but you lack a lot of credibility and your "campaign" tactics not long ago included the same smear as Bachmann. Keith Ellison is not against protecting the troops. I have his record here. You lied. You do understand that those in 5th district are not fooled by them? 

TaxPayer
TaxPayer

 @chrisfields Actually you are incorrect.  I live in the 5th District and I also live in Keith Ellison's home town of Fridley.  He has improved the lives of the people in Fridley at least one way:  He has increased Section 8 welfare housing in the city, which in turn has created more crime (in particular gang violence, armed robberies, shootings, burglaries etc.); these types of crimes were unheard of in Fridley until he took office.  Now, we get to live in constant fear of being hit by stray bullets if we, God Forbid, take our dog for a walk after dark.  We have to live in fear of break-ins in the middle of the night while we are sleeping (my neighbor got hit last week).  We have to drive our kids to school instead of letting them take the bus for fear of them being hit by a stray bullet at the bus stop.

 

Yes, Ellison has definitively improved my family's lives.

 

Which I why we are moving up north to a small town at the end of August so my family can live in peace.  Thank you Keith!!

 @chrisfields I love you Chris Fields.  You are the perfect Republican canidate.  I have some questions for you because your military service is so important.   Can you please talk about how proud you were as a Republican when George W. Bush thought you American soliders couldn't catch Bin Laden in Tora Bora?   Remember how he let the Afganis go caputre Bin Laden and they just took a bribe and let him escape?    How do you feel about Romney dodging the draft?    How did you feel when Bush attacked John Kerry's service in Vietnam?   Did it make you proud to be a Republican when Bush compared war hero Max Cleveland to Osama Bin Laden?   How many limbs should a veteran have to lose for his country before Republicans won't compare him to a terrorist who killed innocent people?    How about the Bush adminstration pushing the military to liew about how Pat Tillman died to his family so the war wouldn't get another black eye?   Do you think that was right?   Please explain how a war vet can be in a party that is so disrespectful to military service.

 @green23 Are you really this uninformed about the political world? Chris Fields graduated Magna Cum Laude, rose from Private to Major in the Marine Corp and knows far too well the struggles that many Americans are experiencing under the current President and Congress. I'm a little surprised by your analysis. This "sacrificial lamb" might bite you in the ass if you're not careful.

when did Muslim or Islam become a race? Communists and Communism were never called a race but a political ideology to oppose... So by your logic, anyone that opposes political Islam is racist?? AND you are implying that there is NO political movement to increase Muslim power in the West? A nationa can survive external attacks, but not fools from within. The crybaby Ellison needs to be sent home! @iain.stjames  @CinBlueland

 @TaxPayer you  are a LIAR! There has been a reduction inSEC8housing. Perhaps your racist azz just is noticing more people because or the Bush/Romeny/Wall Street crisis. Crime always in every area increase during times of economic hardships..of course reading data and history to a moron like you means nothing. Perhaps if the repuke didnt let gun laws become so lame and end the ban on assault rifles we wouldn't have this. Can only hope one of those strays takes out a few of your kind...let's home the "injuns"  get you you sick racist puke!,

 @TaxPayer Actually, that is not true. I think you prefer not to look at his record. You okay with the statement that Chris Fields boasts abt the banking industry that has taken advantage of too many ppl? Chris Fields seems to think that is okay. Why? Where is his head? Section 8 has nothing to do with Ellison btw. Not only do you not know abt the work Ellison did, your attempt at going after those who are on section 8 is pretty telling.

 @MicheleBachmann  @chrisfields I always love this argument. "George Bush is the paradigm of all things Republican!" The fact is, George Bush's policies were hardly Republican. He increased the size of government,sacrificed free market principles to bail out corporations and tried his hand at nation building. None of these fall under the heading of "Republican". What is interesting though, is that President Obama continued many of the policies that Bush was bashed for. 1) Prolonged US troop involvement in Afghanistan. 2) Kept Gitmo open. 3) Bailed out bankrupt companies. 

The only difference seemed to be that Bush at least had enough sense to understand that tax cuts for everybody leads to a stronger economy.

 @jeremiahsuttons "I'm a little surprised by your analysis."

 

I'm a little surprised at your 'analysis', as well. Your statements are completely irrelevant to every point that I made.

 

I never implied that Fields was uneducated or out of touch.

 

He's being used by the Party as a disposable candidate in a hopeless race. If he loses, he will never have another shot, because the Party will mark him as a loser. He ought to be biting his Party in the ass for sending him on the military equivalent of a suicide mission. He apparently hasn't learned from the examples of the previous three losing candidates

 @jeremiahsuttons It has nothing to do with where he came from, all to do with what he does. By his comments, I know already. This person replying to you has plenty of experience in political arena. No, not inspiring to see someone with this background using so little in the "intelligent" medium.

 @CinBlueland You are such a crazy stupid idiot.  None of those quotes are crazy, you just don't agree with them.  I notice you didn't post any of those quotes here because you knew how laughable your stupidity is.    Here is one of the 10 most "shocking" Nancy Pelosi quotes

 

"I’m confident…I’m hopeful  that we’ll have a (health care) bill as a Christmas present for the American people."  

 

Wow!   She is saying she hopes she passes a bill she supports!   Shocking!   That is exactly the same as Michele saying the lion king makes your kid gay.  You are stupid.

 @CinBlueland For laughs I would ask you to submit something Nancy Pelosi or Maxine Waters said that was as crazy as Michele Bachmann's gem "The Lion King is secret gay propaganda"  or "The HPV vaccine makes you retarded what research? no I learnt this cause some lady I just met told me oh yes I want to be President. "   I mean seriously, Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters are not crazy just because you disagree with them.  Grow up.  If they were so crazy you would have a well known and easily mocked story about them.  Instead you just throw out insults but don't back it up.  You are stupid when you say things like that without offering an example

 @MNmark He's why Fox News is such a problem.  Republicans live in this weird bubble where they never stop believing these crazy lies.  It's crazy how many grand conspiracys they see in the world.  Keith Ellison is militantly anti-American!  It's a secret conspiracy guys cause of ACORN and Saul Alinsky.  Who forged Obama's birth ceritificate?  The Lion King is making your kids gay!   Obama is building a super NAFTA highway because!    HPV vaccine makes you a retard!  Global warming is a myth because scientists need money!    Just crazy babble.  I don't see how anyone sane can trust these nutjobs.

 @jeremiahsuttons Yes, Obama did send in more troops into Afghan for a time. He did this for a reason. He knew enough to get troops out of a failing war in Iraq and kept the time table agreed to. Gitmo was kept open b/c Congress took away funds to close it. That's in many bills to for your viewing. Tax cuts do not lead to a stronger economy. You don't have two wars and not have a plan to help pay for them. He did a lot of really stupid things to gain support to keep him in office. None of it paid for btw, and now we all pay for it dearly. Anyone with any sense would know from looking at US economics that cutting taxes does work in a bad economy. But to cut them as Bush did meant worse damage then anything we have ever seen since the beginning of the fall into the Great depression.
