'Hate speech creates a clear and present danger'


Keith Ellison

Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., said in a tweet he is asking the Justice Department to launch an investigation about the legalities of a protest at a Phoenix mosque that included the participation of gun-carrying activists.

But as some social media posters were quick to point out: Investigate them for what – legally protesting?

Ellison in a tweet wrote: “@RepAndreCarson and I are asking the Obama Administration to investigate the armed rally at Phoenix mosque.”

A couple Twitter users were quick to comment.

“Investigate what? The counter-protest already took care of that problem. Free speech does its own plumbing,” wrote one.

And another: “Investigate them for legally protesting?”


The protest Ellison was referring to occurred at the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix in late May, held in part to show solidarity with the “Draw Muhammad” contest in Texas. Approximately 250 protesters carrying American flags and depictions of the Prophet Muhammad assembled outside of the mosque that had previously been attended by the two gunmen from Phoenix who opened gunfire on the “Draw Muhammad” event. Various media outlets described the protest as heated to the point where police had to physically separate Muslims and rally participants, some of whom were armed.

Protest organizers, however, said the First Amendment guarantees them the right to rally, and police at the scene didn’t dispute that fact. Still, Ellison and Carson wrote to Attorney General Loretta Lynch and asked for intervention.

They wrote, Twitchy reported: “These demonstrators argue that they are exercising their First Amendment rights. What they fail to understand is that First Amendment rights are not absolute: they are limited to protect the safety and rights of others.”

One big problem with the protest is that some participants carried weapons, they wrote.

“The presence of assault weapons coupled with deep seeded bigotry and hate speech creates a clear and present danger to worshippers and threatens lawless action,” the letter stated. “The activity of these armed anti-Muslim demonstrators comes at a time when anti-Muslim hate crimes are on the rise. As anti-Muslim violence and bigotry sweep across the country, we must do everything we can to prevent further tragedy and discrimination.”

Ellison, from Minnesota, was the first Muslim elected to the House of Representatives.

It is upsetting more Americans are not protesting.  This is a huge problem that will get bigger as Obama lets more illegals in and more crime to all cities.

is he twisting violent crime stats on purpose?  probably.  what he represented is in exact opposite to FBI stats.  Therefore another expense for his personal political rise - talk big, spend others' money - who cares if he's lying or not.  That's not the purpose of his diatribe.

I'm still astonished that Americans would elect Islamoshits to any public office.

Keith Ellison and Andre Carson are both Sunni muslims and muslim brotherhood members and sympathizers, they're all anti-United States of America Everything / Anti-Israel-Yisrael / Anti-Zionism / Very Antiseitism / Anti-Christian and Jewish People / Anti-Christian's ( Antichrist's )( 1 John 4:3 KJV )!!

The muslim brotherhood are all TERRORISTS / RAPISTS / RAPISTS / NAZISM / COMMUNISM / TOTALITARIANISM / Anti-Israel-Yisrael / Anti-Zionism / Very Antiseitism / Anti-Christian and Jewish People / Anti-Christian's ( Antichrist's )( 1 John 4:3 KJV )!!

The FALSE PAGANISM OCCULT-IDEOLOGY of islam is NOT a religion PERIOD!! The FALSE PAGAN moon god allah-satan is NOT a god, it is just one of 350 FALSE PAGANISM OCCULT-IDEOLOGY gods that came out of the middle east, Arab nations!!

Ellison is a first class PIG! Also a traitor!

hang that traitor with a rope soaked in pig excrement!!!!!  what kind of morons vote for such trash?????

Mr. Ellison you are a clear and present danger. We The People run this country. Oh by the way, What they fail to understand is that First Amendment rights are not absolute: they are limited to protect the safety and rights of others.”

Really, my rights that God gave me by virtue of being created are not absolute. The audacity to make such a statement, why that's soooo muslim, so democrat, so evil to say what God gave you is not absolute. God is absolutely the truth. Those red blooded Americans that attended that assembly came prepared to defend themselves against what a pattern has already proven, people have been killed because they protested the actions of outrage and murder. We The People can and will prevail against by the American government against their own citizens. You are a politician, you are the problem. God bless the people of this great country and God Bless the United States of America.

The  mosques are what should be investigated!!

In the details on the article it mentioned Cason as a co-author to investigate free speech protesters.  It was also raised in of the remarks on how did these people get in office.  Well I live in the district for Carson in Indianapolis Indiana.  Carson is a relative of the late Julia Carson who represented this district for years.   It was not until about 2 years ago I found out he was Muslim when reading about pro Muslim groups he met with out of state.   I am a white Republican in a heavy Democrat district.  Carson got to office mainly on Julia Carson's coat tails.    Recently a fire station a few blocks from my housing addition was closed to consolidate several and now it is a Mosk.  I have not researched nor looked to see if Carson had anything to do with it but it makes me uncomfortable - no not the right word,  "fearful" of them because I have read parts of the Koran they call a holy book which is full of hatred for anyone not believing like them. I am a Christian and thus a target for their hatred. 

My comment about this article is Representatives from out of state have no business interfering in another state's business.    I suggest these two be investigated on why they are not focusing on their own districts needs.  Could it be because they do not care about "True" American citizens only their self centered Muslim Ideology.

Serious AMERICANS go to the new black panther party website, click www., then click A Guide To The Political Left. Oh my GOD! 1435 names, and above barrack and Michelle's name is Abon'go Malik Obama, look Jim up. Over 50 AL , Islam names, banks, businesses. #39 all of us or none, #22 AL queda(AL Qada),America Immigration # 69-70,#90Against tea party.Read the Ten Point Plan. Like third world countries are gonna give those demands to aids infected,druggies, welfare mama's and criminal blacks. Really! Hell they come over here to work and take American jobs not to support a non tax paying lazy race. Do they ever have a surprise coming. Mexican's taking their drugs and jobs, Isis beheading them for christian beliefs, and third world immigrants taking their welfare. When I started telling everybody to go to their website because of the racist and attempted murder threats against whites way before furgerson I had no idea they would clean it up and actually put AL Qaeda in there. But the damage was already done. White people had seen what they were like and used fergurson for their damaging behavior.

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
