Notwithstanding Scott’s best efforts, Keith Ellison cruised to an easy victory in Minnesota’s Fifth Congressional District. The mainstream media never did cover his long association with the Nation of Islam; his support for cop-killers and violent gangs; or the many other lesser foibles that would have doomed most candidates. His election is being heralded around the country as the first ever by a Muslim. That, at least, is true. Listen to the audio of a television report on Ellison’s acceptance speech:
Actually, there was one Congressional candidate in Minnesota whose religion was criticized and questioned by newspaper reporters: Michele Bachmann, who won in the Sixth District. In a televised debate, a reporter asked her how she could expect support from Catholics in view of her religious beliefs. She’s a Lutheran. Needless to say, no such indignity was inflicted on Ellison.
