The automatic default for black racists like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Rep Keith Ellison (D-MN) when they’re caught in a lie is to first deny and then claim that they were taken out of context. That’s the technique that was utilized by Ellison, now the DNC deputy chairman, in their Wednesday night debate.
Ellison is asked by a friendly CNN moderator, Dana Bash, about comments he made on the topic of gun control. She reads, “In 2014 you told Bill Maher that you wished the Democrat Party would come out against the Second Amendment. How do you reach out to Americans who support gun rights when you don’t support the Second Amendment?” For some unknown reason Ellison gets a goofy grin on his face before she even completes the question and attempts to start his false answer early.
He says, “First of all let me tell you, and I remember that show very well and that is not what I said at all.” Pay attention folks, this is what Ellison looks like when he’s telling a bald-faced lie. He continues, “What I talked about is my grandfather’s shotgun, the fact that I am a turkey hunter, and I didn’t say that. That was not an accurate statement.”
He then switches to a dissertation on how bad the employment picture is following 8 years of Democrat rule and some backtracking under the guise of a claim that “guns do need” the background checks that are already required and that nobody cares about murders. He’s no Hillary Clinton or Hussein Obama when it comes to lying and slipping free, Dana Bash proceeds to read the transcript from the Maher program, apparently expecting the lying Democrat might deny having said what he did.
Bill Maher said, “Then why doesn’t your party come out against the Second Amendment? It’s the problem.” Ellison responded, “I sure wish they would, I sure wish they would.” He then goes on to tell her he’s for the right to bear arms but is taking the politically risky position of being against the mass murders that happen every day, citing two examples that hardly qualifies as every day. He proclaims that he’s for “common sense” gun safety laws and he’ll decide who confiscates what from whom and who isn’t allowed to own what.
When one of the other panelists challenges him on that claim being based upon his not using the right words, he claims a right to not be taken out of context.
As the short clip below shows, nothing was taken out of context. He said he wishes that Democrats would attack the Second Amendment because he does, it’s how they take over the country. They need to disarm the people to enslave us. Ellison is lying about that as well.
Above the lie is proven by video tape of the statement on the Bill Maher program.
