Keith Ellison

The Democratic National Committee disqualified a candidate for the DNC chair for saying he didn't believe Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison, pictured above, should become chairman because of his Islamic faith.

Vincent Tolliver told The Hill in an email that he didn’t believe Rep. Ellison should be DNC chairman because Muslims kill gays.

“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,” he added.

Vincent Tolliver

Tolliver, who is black, continued: “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."

DNC interim chair Donna Brazile, who is rumored to be a lesbian, called Tolliver's comments "disgusting". She announced he had been disqualified from the running for DNC chairman.

“The Democratic Party welcomes all Americans from all backgrounds. What we do not welcome is people discriminating against others based on who they are or how they worship,” Brazile told The Hill.

In related news, former Vice President Joe Biden is expected to formally endorse Tom Perez for DNC chairman.

    So wait........because in some countries gay people are killed.....but it is CURRENTLY ILLEGAL to commit this in the USA........it made sense, in his mind, to state this.....out loud, so folks could hear, like seriously....told y'all trump ratings went up do to his Muslim banning......well with exceptional of those countries he does business with.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    What number fell? Man we're all over the place right now in the USA. There's so much conflict going on everywhere you turn.

    Dear Muslims,

    Please don't kill the gays. Thank you.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Based on his e-mail his emphasis was on discrimination.

    Does anyone else find that those who scream the,loudest about people being gay, typically wind up being......wait for it.......GAY?!

    Hilarious. Why do you say this though?

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    As soon as I heard about the ban, I knew what it was as Saudi wasn't listen and they are the "reason behind 9/11", so how didn't they make the list.

  • SaltineCrackers

    They need to start from scratch.

  • SaltineCrackers

    What do you think the ban is?

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    A jab at anything Pres. Obama has done or supported. Just like his sudden interest in Chicago is a jab at folks saying Pres. Obama didn't do enough there.

    If this were solely about places with a "propensity to do the U.S. harm"......he missed quite a few places.

  • Empress

    Can we talk about Trump praising Frederick Douglas like he's still walking around(probably in Chicago)

  • Empress

    Russia kills gays, are they Muslim?

  • SaltineCrackers

    But he talked about Muslims and "the inner city" his entire campaign. Are you saying that his entire campaign was basically a jab at Obama's Presidency?

  • SaltineCrackers

    There is a heavy Muslim presence in Russia, but I'm curious what does Russia have to do with the DNC Chair election?

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    His campaign was based on people's fears and saying the inner city has nothing to lose voting for him is hardly positive. In addition, look at his cabinet selections. .......... who has he nominated that would truly be for Inner Cities?! Seriously

    What good thing did he say about Muslims?!

    He didn't say anything good about Muslims, which is why I don't get why people seem so shocked. Muslims don't care a thing about Black people so they can help themselves with this.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    This post was about a black man being said he was not a good choice because he is Muslim..... nobody is focusing on the Muslims overseas right now. I stand by the fact that they...Muslims, but not all, voted for him thinking because he didn't say anything about them they were safe.....not looking at the hate that came from his mouth and understanding once that hate is released....it has no designated target everybody not like that hate will suffer. I am currently laughing at them, as I saw it coming. He based his campaign on hate and fear and when he feels he is losing his fan base, he reverts back to his tried and true tactics.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Are we surprised that this was another distraction?! NOPE!!

  • Lisa daniels

    I did not know what break you were referring to but whose to say that black men out not getting murdered by the police and the media is simple choosing to ignore it. It has a lot , look at Flint.

    But Tolliver spoke the truth. And if I were him, I'd turn Republican.

    Ellison made a choice to become a Muslim, and Islam is NOT a mainstream American religion, and I don't give a damn what anybody has to say about my opinion. It is a dangerous, reprobate faith that is the largest cult on the planet.

    Islam condones the murder of gays, Jews, Christians, women and even children. How do you make excuses for that?

    In the last 30 days alone, radical Muslims have committed 167 attacks in 26 countries--resulting in close to 1200 deaths. These are completely verifiable numbers. That's not peaceful religion. That's terrorism.

    If the DNC elects this man, then it hasn't learned a thing from 2016's elections.

    We finally have a President who understands the grave threat that Islam presents to democracy. And I completely endorse his travel ban because IT MAKES SENSE. Political correctness does not keep a country safe.

    If anybody feels Trump's moves against Muslim terrorism is a bad thing, then they should consider moving to Iran.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    And how many Christian preachers have you seen stoning gays to death? Let's be realistic.

    Muslim extremists are throwing gays off buildings, burning women for fornication and adultery, and executing and maiming children. There's not a church in this country that is doing reprehensible things like that.

  • Nanny

    Christian white people murder little black boys on a daily basis. White Christians vandalized mosques, kill people in church and rape kids for nothing.
    Islam is the 3rd largest religion in the u.s. there are over 8 million Muslims. Most are black. There are Christian pedophiles terrorizing gay and trans people.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    You're twisting facts, and its obvious. In this country, you are able to enjoy practicing whatever religion you chose; not so in Muslim countries.

    Black boys aren't being killed by people who call themselves Christians for being non-believers of Christianity. Let's stick to the topic at hand. The discussion is about religious violence, not racial and political violence.

    But in Islamic countries, its all the same by the way, because Islamic clerics double as government officials. You don't get to speak out against them. Their interpretation of the Koran is law. Opposition to their rule is unacceptable. You can't compare that to American Christianity and you know it.

    No church in the U.S. is wielding that kind of power period.

    And the Crusades are an overused excuse all Muslims make when confronted with the reality that they are trapped in a false religion that officially sanctions the murders of innocent people.

    Our great NEGOTIATOR Trump loses court battle, will pay $5.7M to golf members
    _______________________________________________________
    President Trump’s golf course empire lost in court this week with a federal judge’s ruling he must repay members $5.7 million in deposits.

    After Trump’s company bought the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Jupiter, Fla. in 2012, he brought it under the Trump National banner. Shortly after, 65 members said they wanted to resign and receive membership refunds. Trump at the time directed golf staff to block the members from the club — while they remained on the resignation "waiting" list — and continued to pay dues.

    In a letter, Trump said, “as the owner of the club, I do not want them to utilize the club nor do I want their dues. In other words… if you choose to remain on the resignation list, you’re out.”

    U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra ruled Wednesday that the situation breached the contract members had signed. He ordered Trump to repay $4.8 million in deposits plus $925,000 in interest.

    The case was among more than 4,000 legal actions counted in a USA TODAY review of Trump's history in court over the last four decades. Trump still has several dozen pending legal challenges filed before the election aimed at his businesses. He's being sued over bills tied to his Washington D.C. hotel, treatment of an employee at his golf course and is suing others over business disputes.

    Since November, several suits have been filed against Trump in his capacity as president — both by political groups and citizens.

    The 2013 case went to trial in August in West Palm Beach. At trial, evidence included recordings of Eric Trump and Donald Trump testifying. Donald Trump had been deposed in April 2015, before he announced his bid for the White House.

    In the deposition, Donald Trump stressed how much money they injected into the club, “We spent a tremendous amount of money on the kitchen, on the dining rooms, all of the public spaces, the bar areas. The swimming pool, we have virtually redone the swimming pool and made it beautiful. It was very weak. We made it good.”

    Remember when you almost got arrested for sexually stalking Beyonce by sending your ugly naked pictures to her? THIS WAS PUBLISHED BACK THEN. LEAVE THE WOMAN ALONE.'

    "(AP) ATLANTA Pop superstar Beyonce may file papers requesting a restraining order against an Atlanta photographer who she claims has been stalking her for 2 years.

    According to reports, Beyonce fears for her safety after allegedly being stalked by Sandra Rose, 46, who began stalking and harassing her in 2005.

    According to sources close to Beyonce, Rose, a photographer specializing in celebrity events, was commissioned to photograph a party following a Destiny’s Child concert in 2005. Rose introduced herself to Beyonce and a conversation followed. Following their brief meeting, Rose began sending nude pictures of herself and sexually explicit emails to Beyonce’s publicist offering to perform [sexual act] on Beyonce and saying that she wanted “a relationship” with Beyonce.

    After Beyonce and her publicist declined her advances, Rose reportedly became enraged and began a campaign of threatening emails, phone calls, and faxes to Beyonce’s publicist and her management company.

    Beyonce was reportedly so distressed by Rose’s harassment that she cancelled a month of album promotion and left the country out of fear for her safety.

    According to sources, Rose’s harrasment of Beyonce is sexually-charged and may escalate to violence.

    “Ms. Rose’s attempts to contact Beyonce often contain disturbing sexual references and graphic sexual language,” says sources.

    In the restraining order Beyonce may request that Rose stay at least 300 feet from her as well as her family and employees, and be barred from attending her July 20 concert at Phillips Arena.

    Sources close to the incident agree that a restraining order is prudent in the situation. “Her fascination with Beyonce has grown into an obsession that we fear may grow into something much worse. If given the opportunity we fear that she may harm Beyonce.”

    News reportings and videos of black men being abused or murdered by police are known to have a negative impact on black mental health. And subsequent acquitals of said officers only make things worse. Maybe you missed 2016, but I didn't and if my people can get a mental health break (which makes everyone safer) I'll take it.

    What did Loretta Lynch or Eric Holder do for black people?

    I think its important to recognize the Bible's chronological nature. Muslims often misquote the Bible, just as many Christians do, to make some irrelevant point that is undermined when a careful analysis of scriptural history and continuity is made.

    The Bible is consistent from the Old Testament through the New Testament.

    Please consider the context in which the Old Testament was written, where The Law you speak of was handed down: First of all, God wanted the Hebrew people to NOT adopt the ways of pagans and other non-believers, so He established clear guidelines through the OT so the Hebrews would separate themselves from non-believers.

    Secondly, the OT chronicles God's instruction for the Hebrews to fight non-believers because those people were attacking and encircling and enslaving the Hebrews.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Correct, I do. I have to travel to Arab countries and areas in Africa with large Muslim populations to work sometimes, so I'm well aware that there are black Muslims here and all over the world. Knowing the culture the way I do, I stand by what I said. Black people have stood in solidarity with Muslims before and when it was time to support us they were no where to be found. Black Americans have to save our energy for our fight because I'm sure we'll be at it alone when the time comes again.

    Not at all. Unlike Islam, Christianity as a religion does not require obsessive adherence to man-dictated customs like Islam does. That's why Christianity has denominations and sects. But the unifying theme--whether you claim to be Baptist, Methodist, Assemblies of God or even Jehovah's Witness--is a belief in the Divinity of Christ, which Muslims reject.

    No problem. I wanted to learn more about my own faith, and that of others as well. I also wanted to know the history of Christianity and Judaism.

    I studied for two years. Few people know that about me, but I studied at a young age. Biblical archaeology and Aramaic languages were my primary courses of study.

    I gained so much from that, and it really helped me reach a deeper understanding of God's purpose and grace and wisdom. You should consider it.

    Im from Poedunk, Small Town, America and I still cook pork chops for hubby and the kids. So I feel your pain on them cravings. But thats interesting about the meat. I do have uncles who are 5 percenters and they always say "Why would a living being take death into their body?" So, yea.
    I buy free range eggs not meat and not wild caught seafood. I need to do better.

    Right. I feel your uncles. Like I have a spiritual guru who swears that the shock that animals feel when they are slaughtered...gets trapped inside their flesh. He explains it a lot more eloquently than I can.
    Yeah...try wild-caught seafood, always. And beware of seafood from far away, like China or Chile, etc. I'm no expert, but google it..you'll see.

    Your comment ties into a point I made somewhere else. All of the things you mention we've BEEN going through! When some of us were on the streets fighting against stop&frisks, being stopped & frisked, and educating people. We did it damn near alone and without extra monies flooding into the local aclu office. So like I wrote before I 'll take the break until our time comes again because when it does we'll probably be on our own.

    UPDATE: Pastor Scott from earlier is a liar just like everybody predicted. Earlier he said that Chicago's top gangbangers contacted him personally (about "lowering the body count"), because they "believed" in Orange Chicken administration and not Obama's , now he's back tracking after being questioned. He saying now that they are FORMER gang leaders. NOBODY in Chicago has ever heard of this guy before now... and here's the gotcha.......the news guy pointed out that while Pastor Scott is coming going to Chicago to FAKE help with their issue, the murder rate per capita in his hometown of Cleveland is higher than Chicago's....His ole lying shady azz!

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Good. That is funny tho that you got hit with the "Hey big head". Teehee

  • Li

    Yep, I saw that. And I had a thousand questions since I'm from Chicago. "Who" are these gang leaders who contacted HIM? He didn't name them. And yes Cleveland's rate is higher than Chicago.
    If you lose logic this all boils down to money. Trump must be paying these preachers or "contributing" to their churches to get them to make these outrageous statements about knowing gang members. He also said he was bringing Floyd Mayweather and Jim Brown with him....don't hold your breath.

    We finally have a President who understands the grave threat that Islam presents to democracy

    I never thought you were a nutter but ok.

    Ok let's say that Islamic terrorism is a threat how is saying 'Islamic terrorism' help alleviate the threat or how does shutting out immigrants from Iraq some of whom risked their lives to assist U.S. troops in Iraq helping defeat terrorism?

    So this same president is about to sign an executive order which allows companies doing business with the U.S. government to use religion to discriminate against gays and prevent women from obtaining contraception through their employer.

    BTW you're more likely to get struck by lightening than killed by a 'terrorist'.

    But keep clinging to Big Daddy Donny if it makes you 'feel safer'.

    I always thought that conservatives were against big government but I guess it depends on who's running government.

    Here you go girl. I'll post it here so hopefully Sandra won't see it. This is what was posted,

    Remember when you almost got arrested for sexually stalking Beyonce by sending your ugly naked pictures to her? THIS WAS PUBLISHED BACK THEN. LEAVE THE WOMAN ALONE.'

    "(AP) ATLANTA Pop superstar Beyonce may file papers requesting a restraining order against an Atlanta photographer who she claims has been stalking her for 2 years.

    According to reports, Beyonce fears for her safety after allegedly being stalked by Sandra Rose, 46, who began stalking and harassing her in 2005.

    According to sources close to Beyonce, Rose, a photographer specializing in celebrity events, was commissioned to photograph a party following a Destiny’s Child concert in 2005. Rose introduced herself to Beyonce and a conversation followed. Following their brief meeting, Rose began sending nude pictures of herself and sexually explicit emails to Beyonce’s publicist offering to perform [sexual act] on Beyonce and saying that she wanted “a relationship” with Beyonce.

    After Beyonce and her publicist declined her advances, Rose reportedly became enraged and began a campaign of threatening emails, phone calls, and faxes to Beyonce’s publicist and her management company.

    Beyonce was reportedly so distressed by Rose’s harassment that she cancelled a month of album promotion and left the country out of fear for her safety.

    According to sources, Rose’s harrasment of Beyonce is sexually-charged and may escalate to violence.

    “Ms. Rose’s attempts to contact Beyonce often contain disturbing sexual references and graphic sexual language,” says sources.

    In the restraining order Beyonce may request that Rose stay at least 300 feet from her as well as her family and employees, and be barred from attending her July 20 concert at Phillips Arena.

    Sources close to the incident agree that a restraining order is prudent in the situation. “Her fascination with Beyonce has grown into an obsession that we fear may grow into something much worse. If given the opportunity we fear that she may harm Beyonce.”
