Normal people would vote Republican.
Anyone with analytical powers or plain common sense would have a totally changed view of the Democratic Party if Ellison is appointed, and voters, as described above, would have to think twice before pledging allegiance to a party that would have such a leader.
But again, we're talking about liberals--they don't seem to like America as it is now and always want to change her.
Ellison is the first Muslim to be elected to U.S. Congress. That in and of itself is not an issue, but beside a history of not paying his parking tickets (something that is unlawful) Ellison is a strong supporter of Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam.
When Ellison attended the University of Minnesota Law School, he wrote several articles supporting the anti-Semitic, anti-white Farrakhan. You can see more on Farrakhan here, here and here.
But Farrakhan doesn't like white people either.
Ellison had also called for the impeachment of Dick Chaney and compared George W. Bush to Adolf Hitler, so of course Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren love the guy as does Chuck Schumer (D. NY) and Harry Reid (D. Nev.).
Another website, Jihad Watch, has a lot to say about Ellison and his relationship to Islam.
Ellison back Bernie Sanders in the election. "Bernie sparked the beginning of a revolution y'all," he said at the DNC in Philadelphia. "Together we call for climate justice, racial justice, wage justice."
Nobody is quite sure what 'climate justice' means, and racial justice is Ellison's idea that cops need to stop returning fire. Wage justice is the belief that your money needs to be divided up, but not the money of the elite.
Sanders has also backed Ellison and said in a fundraising email that an Ellison-led Democratic Party will stand up to Wall Schtreet greed and corporate America.
Socialists hate big corporations because they're big.
Ellison is expected to announce his bid Monday. On Sunday, he hinted he would run and said the party needs to focus on middle- and working-class Americans and less on donors.
