Keith Ellison

So, Democrats in Congress and elsewhere are worried about the image that President Bush has given the U.S. on the world stage?

I wonder how this blathering speech by Keith Ellison, as reported by the Telegraph in the UK, makes America look to the semi-lucid across the pond:

America's first Muslim congressman has provoked outrage by apparently comparing President George W Bush to Adolf Hitler and hinting that he might have been responsible for the September 11 attacks.

Addressing a gathering of atheists in his home state of Minnesota, Keith Ellison, a Democrat, compared the 9/11 atrocities to the destruction of the Reichstag, the German parliament, in 1933. This was probably burned down by the Nazis in order to justify Hitler's later seizure of emergency powers.

"It's almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that," Mr Ellison said. "After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it, and it put the leader [Hitler] of that country in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted."
And this sort of crap is supposed to help our international complexion?

I have a message for you Keith, in case you missed the newsreels, the scientific findings, the results of countless studies, the claims of responsibility, and our recent history with certain members of a large religious cult: Islamic terrorists are responsible.

For any Muslim to paint Bush with a Hitler brush is the most bitter or ironies for Mein Kampf, Hitler's autobiography, is a best seller in much of the Muslim world.
