Ellison affair exposes anti-Trump hypocrisy

By Ray Hanania

Democrats and their haters of President Donald Trump want you to believe that they love Muslims and they love civil rights.

And yet, when the opportunity came to actually love a Muslim by electing Congressman Keith Ellison as chair the Democratic National Committee, they bailed on Ellison.

Ellison is the first Muslim to be elected to the U.S. Congress. He was nominated by U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, who was backstabbed by the hypocrite Democrats and anti-Trump haters and should have been the party presidential nominees.

But when the Democrats and the anti-Trump haters got together, they took a dive on Ellison and instead voted to elect a nobody who happened to be “Latino” (from the Dominican Republic) and was appointed to the post of U.S. Secretary of Labor by President Barack Obama. Perez never lobbied or campaigned for the spot but was pushed in to it by Obama and by the Democratic leadership and cheered by the anti-Trump haters who continue to disguise their hatred by asserting that they love Muslims, they love minorities, they love civil rights.

The truth is, their “love” is selfish politics and the suffering of Muslims, Arabs and other minorities is little more than just an opportunity for them. The anti-Trump haters will step on the backs of these “victims” in order to empower themselves politically.
