DNC Chair Candidate Once Said Black People Don’t Have ‘Obligation’ To Obey Government

Keith Ellison is a far left radical. He’s also one of the leading contenders to take over the chairmanship of the Democratic Party.

Back in 1992, he said something that should give all Americans pause.

The Daily Caller reports:

Keith Ellison Once Said Black People Don’t Have ‘Obligation’ To Obey Government

Democratic congressman and DNC chair front-runner Keith Ellison once said that “black people don’t live in a democracy” and “don’t have an obligation” to obey the government.

Ellison made the comments at a 1992 protest after white police officers were acquitted in the beating of Rodney King. At least 63 people died in the racially charged riots following the verdict.

Minnesota newspaper the Star Tribune quotes Ellison as telling a group of protesters in Minneapolis that “Black people do not live under a democracy.”

“You don’t have an obligation to obey a government that considers you to be less than human,” Ellison said.

Is this really who the Democrats want leading their party? Trump’s election was a rejection of radical leftism and identity politics, among other things.

If the Democrats keep going further to the radical left, they risk becoming a small regional party.

That point has been made by countless people but they just refuse to listen.
