Now that the Minneapolis town council is intending to “dismantle” the police department in the wake of rampant rioting last week that saw massive arson and looting, and resulted in the death of “an unidentified female in her 30’s”, it may be wise to revisit the radical politics of the Minnesota Attorney General, Keith Ellison, and that of his son, council member Jeremiah Ellison.
Jeremiah Ellison was among nine (a veto-proof majority) of the 13 Minneapolis City Council members who voted to defund police, as reported at local outlet Kare11. City council members Lisa Bender, Alondra Cano, Phillipe Cunningham, Steve Fletcher, Jeremiah Ellison, Cam Gordon, Andrea Jenkins, and Jeremy Schroeder all “announced they’re planning to disband the police department.”
“We’re dismantling our police department. And we won’t be silent. We’ll be loud. We’ll fight. We’ll win,” the younger Ellison tweeted on Sunday night. It is unclear what Minneapolis will win.
Does this Antifa-loving, police-hating father and son duo really represent the people of Minnesota?
The Minneapolis Star Tribune described some of the damage from the Minneapolis riots:
As of Friday night, at least 530 businesses across the Twin Cities had been vandalized, looted or had doors and windows smashed. Some have been reduced to rubble, and at least 67 have been destroyed completely by fire. Others have reported extensive water damage or severe fire damage.”
The damage included the complete destruction of the Third Precinct. As reported at RAIR, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey ordered police to flee as rioters took over, setting off fireworks in triumph.
Here is a gallery of a fraction of the chaos. It is inconceivable to consider what further damage would have occurred if police were absent altogether:
Council member Jeremiah Ellison has clearly followed in his father’s radical footsteps, declaring his support for Antifa in a particularly incoherent manner on Twitter as well as proudly announcing the dismantling of the Minneapolis police department in the wake of the Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, which have been documented at RAIR Foundation USA.
Jeremiah’s dad has also publicly declared his support for antifa.
Jeremiah Ellison is not the only radical spawn of a prominent politician in Minneapolis, as Rep. Ilhan Omar’s daughter Isra Hirsi, 17, retweeted the Minneapolis branch of America’s Largest Marxist organization, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) when they asked for riot supplies such as “ply wood for shields,” “anything else useful for shielding from cops,” “tennis rackets” and “hockey sticks,” as reported at RAIR.
Author and film-maker Trevor Loudon has detailed Keith Ellison’s hard-left radical and terrorist ties in a monograph: Burn This Book: What Keith Ellison Doesn’t Want You to Know: A Radical Marxist-Islamist, His Associations and Agenda. Loudon uncovered a June 1989 interview in a Marxist-Leninist magazine featuring then-student activist Keith Ellison bashing “police brutality,” “white supremacy” and “capitalism”.
Like father, like son.
It seems that a recall is in order.
