U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., has been spotted wearing what certainly has the potential to be a GOP campaign ad during the 2018 midterms: a shirt that reads “I don’t believe in borders.”
It was at a May Day parade in Minneapolis that Ellison, who has a long history of making outrageous statements and claims, wore a shirt stating “Yo No Creo En Fronteras.”
Fox reported that earlier this year, Ellison made headlines by telling a crowd that Democrats “do not have the right to lose a damn election” because then “women are dying.”

“How are you doing? I’m your congressman,” Ellison is heard telling a paradegoer.
The Washington Examiner said Ellison, who also is the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, also has advocated for a plan to have the government pay people salaries.
“I personally do think that the universal basic income — it has a lot of merit,” Ellison said during a visit to Minneapolis. “As people are displaced, the truth is there’s still plenty of stuff for people to do. I don’t think that universal basic income means people sit around. I think it means they do other things that are necessary, like extra folks in the classroom to help out the teacher.”
His “women are dying” comment came at the Progressive Change Campaign Committee.
He screamed, “Women are dying because we are losing elections. We don’t have the right to lose a damn election!”
He also has lobbied for a “maximum wage,” has demanded that “Israelis have to be bombed,” likened President Trump to King George III, proclaimed blacks have no “obligation” to obey the government, and more.

WND reported last year when the president of the American Jewish Congress expressed concern about Ellison.
Jack Rosen, at that time said people should contact the DNC “and tell them that you share our concerns that Rep. Keith Ellison is a threat to our nation’s unity and to our relationship with our ally Israel.”
WND reported on the controversial bid for DNC chairman by the first Muslim in Congress.
But Ellison’s radical past goes well beyond casual connections with marginal figures. As WND recently reported, Ellison’s career was launched by dedicated Communist Party members and he was involved in explicitly communist movements.
Researcher Trevor Loudon, who profiled Ellison in his explosive film “The Enemies Within,” has documented Ellison’s partnership with anti-American organizations dating back to when he was a student. As WND reported in December, there is considerable evidence that Ellison is an operative for the Muslim Brotherhood.
Rosen, denouncing Ellison’s candidacy, said the Democratic lawmaker can’t be trusted regarding his stance on Israel.
Radio talk show host Larry Elder, author of “Dear Father, Dear Son,” also pointed to Ellison’s extreme past.
“Ellison had close ties with the anti-Semitic, anti-white Nation of Islam, and those ties continued a lot longer than Ellison wants to admit,” he told WND.
As Elder observed, Ellison’s past support for an independent black ethnostate is indicative of his previous associations.
“That’s a core position of the Nation of Islam – that there should be a separate country for American blacks,” said Elder.
Jesse Lee Peterson, a civil rights leader, founder of the organization BOND and the author of several books, including “The Antidote,” was incredulous about Ellison being taken seriously as leader of the DNC.
“Keith Ellison has a very radical past and he has a history of cozying up to and working with communists and hate groups,” he said. “Ellison is a fan of Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam. He has ties to and is in agreement with the anti-American, Jewish hating CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) – a front group for the Muslim Brotherhood. Ellison constantly attacks police and supports the anti-police Black Lives Matter movement.”
