Ellison to appear on CNN’s State of the Union

GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann won’t be the only member of Minnesota’s delegation to appear on the Sunday morning shows this weekend. DFL Rep. Keith Ellison is scheduled to appear on CNN’s State of the Union tomorrow morning.

CNN’s website says Ellison will appear as a counter to Rep. Peter King, R-NY:

Finally, Rep. Peter King, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, has planned hearings on the radicalization of Muslims in America. He’ll join us to explain what he’s hoping to learn. Also joining us will be Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress.

The show airs at 8am Central.

    Candy Crowley failed to confront Peter King on his longtime support for international terrorism in the form of the IRA. He was always a steady apologist for those in the US who gave them money. Then he was unconcerned that the IRA received arms and money from Libya, a Moslem extremist nation. Now he wants to smear Moslems in the US. It is an absurd hypocricy for him to chair the House Homeland Security Committee and CNN has an obligation in the public interest to confront him on it.

    One only has to look at Ellison’s campaign contributors, the amounts he has received and the past money donated to him to travel to Cairo to ” tour” mosques. WHEN will someone ask him if he denounces Shariah Law, or the Muslim Brotherhood or Hamas or AlQuaida? well?????? Can someone ask him before we send future votes his way? So far, he refuses to answer these questions.
