Anyone that thinks that Keith Ellison is a law-abiding citizen apparently isn’t paying attention. First, Ellison is credibly accused of physically abusing a recent girlfriend. This is made more credible in the court of public opinion because he’s praised and supported cop-killers in the not-that-distant-past.

In his post, Scott Johnson wrote “Ellison publicly supported the Haaf murder defendants. In February 1993, he spoke at a demonstration for one of them during his trial. Ellison led the crowd assembled at the courthouse in a chant that was ominous in the context of Haaf’s cold-blooded murder: “We don’t get no justice, you don’t get no peace.’ Ellison’s working relationship with Sharif Willis came to an end in February 1995, when Willis was convicted in federal court on several counts of drug and gun-related crimes and sent back to prison for 20 years.” Then Johnson added this:

Ellison’s support for the murderers of Officer Haaf was not a one-off. In February 2000 Ellison spoke at a fundraiser sponsored by the Minnesota chapter of the old National Lawyers Guild, on whose steering committee he had served. The chapter was raising funds for former Symbionese Liberation Army member Kathleen Soliah after her apprehension in St. Paul (under the name “Sara Jane Olson”). The National Lawyers Guild is of course the old Communist front group, though it has survived the fall of the Soviet Union.

In October 2001, Soliah/Olson pleaded guilty to two counts of possessing explosives with intent to commit murder in the long-pending Los Angeles case. In January 2002 Soliah/Olson and four other SLA members were charged with the murder of Myrna Opsahl in Sacramento in the Crocker National Bank case. Soliah/Olson’s participation in the SLA’s Crocker National Bank robbery/murder had long been a matter of public record. Soliah/Olson pleaded guilty to the murder charge in November 2002.

Keith Ellison hasn’t stood with law enforcement in virtually forever. Compare that with this proud endorsement statement of Doug Wardlow:

If we’re electing the chief law enforcement officer in the state, shouldn’t we ignore a candidate who essentially ignores Minnesota’s law enforcement officers? BTW, this isn’t even close to the comprehensive list of cop-killers that Keith Ellison has supported.

Finally, anti-Semitism is a crime, too. There’s no bigger anti-Semite than Louis Farrakhan. Guess what? Keith Ellison and Louis Farrakhan are friends. Surprised? I’m not.
