Racially-charged remarks made by one of the front-runners of the Democratic Party were just made public, and they are shocking to say the least.

Keith Ellison, a Democratic Congressman and DNC chair front-runner, is single-handedly contributing to the decline of racial relations in the country today.

Between accusing individuals of having their hands in corrupt government actions, to claiming there should be a second “safe space” nation for minorities, the absurdity of the comments made by this individual not only have no backing, but are problematic in and of themselves.

The Daily Caller reported:

Democratic congressman and DNC chair front-runner Keith Ellison once said that “black people don’t live in a democracy” and “don’t have an obligation” to obey the government.

Ellison made the comments at a 1992 protest after white police officers were acquitted in the beating of Rodney King. At least 63 people died in the racially charged riots following the verdict.

Minnesota newspaper the Star Tribune quotes Ellison as telling a group of protesters in Minneapolis that “Black people do not live under a democracy.”

In the past, Ellison has been denounced not only for his comments about racial relations, but for having ties to anti-Semitic individuals.

In 2007, while speaking to an “atheist group,” he claimed the 9/11 attacks were a direct result of government action. He even compared the attacks to the Reichstag fire.

The Daily Caller reported:

“It’s almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that,” Ellison said of 9/11, according to reports at the time. “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.”

Ellison went on to say he wouldn’t suggest the U.S. had a hand in the attacks because “you know, that’s how they put you in the nut-ball box — dismiss you,” before later walking back his comments.

In 2009, the Muslim DNC member was investigated for a matter of potential bribery.

The Daily Caller reported:

“Ellison, the nation’s first Muslim congressman, has come under fire for his history of making racially inflammatory comments, as well as his past association with notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, whom Ellison has since renounced.

Ellison was the subject of a House Ethics Committee investigation in 2009 after failing to disclose that an American Muslim organization with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood had paid $13,500 for him to take a pilgrimage to Mecca in 2008.”
