DNC boots candidate from chairman’s race for criticizing Ellison’s Islamic faith

February 1, 2017

The Democratic National Committee is kicking a candidate out of the chairman’s race after he told The Hill that Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) should not be the party’s next leader because he is Muslim.

In a Jan. 5 email to The Hill, Vincent Tolliver, a former House candidate in Arkansas, said that Ellison, the first-ever Muslim elected to Congress, should not be chairman because of Islamic positions on homosexuality.

“His being a Muslim is precisely why DNC voters should not vote for him,” Tolliver wrote. “Muslims discriminate against gays. Islamic law is clear on the subject, and being gay is a direct violation of it. In some Muslim countries, being gay is a crime punishable by death.”

“Clearly, Mr. Ellison is not the person to lead the DNC or any other organization committed to not discriminating based on gender identity or sexual orientation,” Tolliver continued. “I’m shocked HRC [Human Rights Campaign] has been silent on the issue. A vote for Representative Ellison by any member of the DNC would be divisive and unconscionable, not to mention counterproductive to the immediate and necessary steps of rebuilding the Democratic Party.”

A spokesperson for Tolliver said he stands by the statement.

    Well… I will just say….big mistake for the Democrats, appointing a Muslim will surely be the biggest mistake of the entire life, and they will hit bottom. They might as well do away with the democratic party…. but such is their choice.

    Once again. DemonRATS eat their own. Ahhh yes, the party of bullshit!

  • snowyriver says:

    Wait a minute… All followers of the cult of Islam think their cult is greater than our Constitution.. Any that think this way should be barred from Congress.

  • Betty says:

    women, gays, christians, they are against all of these oh I forgot the Democrats did not want God mentioned in their platform either

  • John says:

    I have to agree with Tolliver. Minn. has had some real ding bat congressional representatives such as Ellison and that ignorant comedian from saturday night live their senator that is know protesting confirmation hearings in the senate.

  • Luke says:

    You have to love the complete ignorance of the left wanting to put a antiAmerican muslim in as their leader of the dnc..This would be the end of the demonrat party, I just love it..I wonder if this muzzie would look out for the lbgt community..

  • Tiger says:

    Good keep showing what you are and you are going to loose the support of the few Real Democrats who remain in the party. They will do you in, The losses you will endure will be a tsunami and it will finally wash all of you Progressive/Communists out of this Republic. As it should be and this Democrat has now become to me a symbol of hope for the party that once belonged to men like my father.

  • Rodney Steward says:

    If the Dems keep making these stupid choices, they’ll keep wrecking their own party, keep being UnAmerican and keep paying!

  • justinwachin says:

    This is interesting a gay rights advocate is kicked out of the running for his criticism of a Muslim candidate whose religion bans homosexuality.

    I’ve got a better idea. The Democrats should choose neither of these men to lead it. If the Democrats ever hope to return to a growing party they need to realize gay rights and an embrace of Islam is not going to get them there.

    Most Americans have all the homosexuality and Islam they want. They aren’t eager to have more of either.

    “Vincent Tolliver, a former House candidate in Arkansas, said that Ellison, the first-ever Muslim elected to Congress, should not be chairman because of Islamic positions on homosexuality.”
    As Al “I Would Be President” Gore would say, “An Inconvenient Truth.”

    The DNC has little tolerance for truth.

  • exoticdoc2 says:

    He’s right in that muslims have NO place within the US government. The false religion of islam is completely incompatible with western culture and Christianity and should not be tolerated given the violent, murderous cult that it is.

      Bigots like you have no place in this country. Drop dead!!!

  • teaman says:

    Yet, every idiot in any Gooberment position both dummycrats and Rep-A-Flubs continue to butt kiss islamic pukes. I agree, Ellison shouldn’t even in charge of anything…..PERIOD!!!
    Now, why do we have the iclamic butt kissing? Islam is not a religion and it never has been but it is an ideology hell bent on world domination. People in high places need to study islam and one of the best places to start is “prophetofdoom.net” for free.

    Prophet of Doom is the best-documented, most comprehensive,
    presentation of Islam’s five oldest and most reliable scriptural
    sources. Ishaq’s Biography of Muhammad, Tabari’s History of Islam, and
    Bukhari’s and Muslim’s Hadith, were used to reorder the Qur’an
    chronologically and to set its surahs into the context of Muhammad’s
    life. When this evidence is evaluated systematically, the only rational
    conclusion is that Islam’s lone prophet was a ruthless terrorist, a
    mass-murderer, a thief, slave trader, rapist and pedophile.

    Also, all need to read the following books;

    Stealth Jihad by, How Radical islam is subverting America without guns or bombs, by Robert Spencer.

    See Something Say Nothing, A homeland Security Officer Exposes The Gooberment’s Submission to Jihad, by Philip Haney & Art Moore.

    Takedown, From communists to progressives how the left has sabotaged family and marriage, by Paul Kengor, PH.D.

    Stop listening to brain dead idiots and educate yourself!!!

  • PJ says:

    Does not matter to the DNC. What they say they are trying to accomplish is not what they are REALLY trying to accomplish. One World Order is the goal as it fits in their progressive mantra.

    To the LGBT community…you think conservatives are your enemy? Not even close. It is the left wing progressives that will cast you aside to achieve their goals. Your enemy is the DNC.

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      You’d think they would’ve figured it out when the terrorist attack took place in Florida!!

    2. Tiger says:

      They are daily coming to a boil in that pot. They are the frogs croaking without noticing the fire under them that will boil them. They are committing Party Suicide. Let it be.

  • itsfun says:

    Keep up the same crap Dems. You have only lost 1000 seats in state and federal government the last 8 years. l Keep up the good work and in 2 years the number will be 1500.

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      I totally agree, but Obama had a bunch of them and some are still there at this time!

      1. Jackie L Millsaps says:

        I think in time Trumph will weed them out.

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          I’m pretty sure he will since most are in some of our highest security places!

    2. Jackie L Millsaps says:

      I agree

  • Webb says:

    Good Point…But does it matter to a Democrat!
    Identity Politics has destroyed The Democratic Party…
    Islam says exactly that about gays as stated…Truth no longer matters in most political situations!

    1. Tiger says:

      It matters to this Democrat because he is a Democrat and obviously not a member of the Progressive/Communist party.

      1. Webb says:

        I agree…But there are only a few true Democrats left.
        In Tolliver’s case his opinion got him canned but he was correct in my view of his point…

        1. Tiger says:

          He is a hero in mine and believe me he can make a change.

      2. John says:

        i am so glad to hear from a Democrat with common sense Tiger I am proud of

        1. Tiger says:

          I am proud of him. My father a staunch Democrat all his life, in his 80’s he changed parties. He realized immediately Obama a bad man.

          Yes I am hoping this good man has many followers and that the Democrat Party redeems itself and stands against all these Progressives, believe me if he and they do it they will survive.

  • mort_f says:

    Not just the gays, Islam is hellbent on conquering the entire world. No Islamist can pledge allegiance to the US Constitution, the Quran is diametrically opposed to it.

    1. Tiger says:

      The Qur’an and Sharia Law are not compatible with our Laws and our Constitution. They are unaware that there is a law on our books since 1952 that gives the President to get anyone, any people out of this country that is detrimental to our country. They will learn.
