WASHINGTON — Keith Ellison made history Thursday, becoming the first Muslim member of Congress and punctuating the occasion by taking a ceremonial oath with a Koran once owned by Thomas Jefferson.
“Look at that. That’s something else,” Ellison, D-Minn., said as officials from the Library of Congress showed him the two-volume Koran, which was published in London in 1764.
A few minutes later, Ellison took the ceremonial oath with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., at his side.
A few thoughts came to my mind.
First, they are all happy to have duped the public into thinking it is progressive to mock the traditional swearing in ceremony. Previous leaders have sworn on the bible because the tenets put forth by Christ are for us to live together and accept all walks of life.
Second, is that they are mocking the ceremony because they simply don’t care about the ceremony any more than the basic tenets of our nation.
Or they could be mocking the basic tenets of our nation by swearing on a the holy book of a religion whose basic tenets say that a nation like ours must fall and bow to Islam.
If you are ever unfortunate enough to be staring into the barrel of a gun, make sure to politely remind your new friend that they left the safety on. In other words, we are killing our nation by allowing ourselves to be polite politically correct victims.
Neither us, nor our children are served by Speaker Pelosi’s socialism nor by Congressmen Ellison’s Islam. Quick, name one communist, socialist, or Islamic nation that we should aspire to be more like. I couldn’t come up with any either, perhaps we should just conserve the nation and ideal that are working so well for us that the rest of the world wants to come here.
