Muslim Congressman Compares Bush to Hitler

I read about this the other day but I didn’t feel like posting on it. Basically, because I don’t know, or much care, about this Keith Ellison asshole. But today it’s been slowly eating away at me given that Elison, is in fact, an actual congressman.

From what I’ve read about him, he has connections to the Nation of Islam and is well liked by CAIR; the pro-Islamist front group. So, it’s not a surprise that he is unable to control his Muslim seethery.

(Telegraph) America's first Muslim congressman has provoked outrage by apparently comparing President George W Bush to Adolf Hitler and hinting that he might have been responsible for the September 11 attacks.

Addressing a gathering of atheists in his home state of Minnesota, Keith Ellison, a Democrat (as if we couldn’t have guessed. Ed.), compared the 9/11 atrocities to the destruction of the Reichstag, the German parliament, in 1933. This was probably burned down by the Nazis in order to justify Hitler's later seizure of emergency powers.

"It's almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that," Mr Ellison said. "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."

Almost worse than the comment itself is the lack of media coverage that this type of rhetoric has received.
