Video: Democrat goes completely unhinged on TV

posted at 9:21 am on February 27, 2013 by Ed Morrissey

And lucky for us, he’s from my state, too.  Uff da! Sean Hannity invited Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) to appear on his show last night to discuss the sequester, and to debate the messaging from the White House that keeps pushing scare stories at the expense of reality.  Instead, Ellison treated us all to a demonstration of just what a safe Democratic Congressional district will produce … a six minute demonstration, no less.

How long can you watch?

I only got through the first minute. Fortunately, Noel Sheppard of Newsbusters provides us with the transcript.  Here’s a particularly enlightening exchange from Congressman Ellison:

HANNITY: Let me ask you a question.

ELLISON: No wait a minute. You said I could rant and I’m going to.

HANNITY: I’ve given you plenty of time to rant Congressman.

ELLISON: We’ll let you get a word in, go ahead.

HANNITY: Oh, you’re so nice to give me a word on my own program.

ELLISON: Okay, I changed my mind.

[Crosstalk]

How about this witty riposte?

ELLISON: The budget control act was forced down by the Republican Party. Sequester is a provision of the budget control act.

HANNITY: Congressman, relax.

ELLISON: The Republicans are responsible for the budget control act which contains sequester.

HANNITY: I’ve got it, I know you’re a broken record. Now let me get you my question.

ELLISON: You’re a broken record.

I’m disappointed that Ellison never got to use Winston Churchill’s favorite debate tactic of “I’m rubber, you’re glue.”  But the best comes at the end, when it’s clear just how far out of his depth Ellison has strayed:

ELLISON: Well, to try to say that it is, that it is the president’s fault that he is to blame is wrong and it’s a lie it’s not true.

HANNITY: It’s not his fault that we have 16 trillion in debt. He didn’t add 6 trillion to the debt since he’s been president.

ELLISON: No, no he, no.

HANNITY: You did add 6 trillion to debt since he’s been president.

ELLISON: What about the other 10? Let’s talk about the other 10.

Yes, let’s forget about the six trillion dollars in debt we’ve incurred over the last four years under the policies of the present, and concentrate on the ten trillion we incurred over the previous 200 or so under the policies that are no longer in place. Brilliant.

Hannity concluded this debacle with this thought:

HANNITY: Congressman, you are a total waste of time. I’m moving on because our audience deserves better. Thank you for being with us. I tried to give you a fair shot.

Too bad the voters in MN-05 don’t realize what a waste of time Ellison is.  Forget electing a Republican — isn’t there a Democrat in Minnesota’s 5th CD with a little more candlepower than Congressman I-Know-You-Are But-What-Am-I? Holy buckets!

Ellison bothers me because of what he’s said about Social Security and Medicare.

He opposes means testing because then that makes the programs “more vulnerable.” He’d rather the programs continue on their unstable course indefinitely – and continue to force me to participate and take money I won’t need – out of some sense of egalitarian progress.

In other words, my opinion doesn’t matter because he thinks it’s more important that I’m on an equal basis with poorer older people with less resources. He’s smarter than me and he knows what’s better for me, so too bad.

I’m not surprised. Take over the interview; act like a complete a-hole; don’t allow any questions to actually be asked or engage in any meaningful debate. These are the kinds of things that win praise from today’s left. Kind of like Biden’s bizarre debate performance with Paul Ryan.

What I found interesting about Ellison’s unhinged performance is what it says about the Dems position on sequestration. If Obama and the Dems are in a power position why was Ellison so agitated and afraid to let Hannity speak? It seems that Ellison fears the Dems and Obama might actually be blamed for the misery Obama is going to purposely inflict on Americans for political gain.

Ellison’s been on the Hannity Show before and he’s acted the very same way then as he has recently.

Have you EVER heard ANY Muslim speaking normally to ANYone else in the socio-political realm?

They all by a population seem struck with some sort of inability to control the volume of their voices. Yelling, screaming, pounding, overtalking others, “word violence” fighting seems to be something that affects 99 out of 100 Muslims.

Ellison is typical, in my experience, with both Democrat politicians and Muslims. Screaming, raging, piling-on in mobs, running around irrationally yelling, pounding their fists, pointing their inevitable fingers at others, high volume antagonistic dictates…these are all very typical Muslim behaviors, from what I’ve seen and heard.

He is first and foremost a black muslim. His contributions to his State is flying in as many Somalia Muslims as he can to inflate his votes. He is fanatically anti-American and pro-Sharia law. If anything can convince Americans that other races will never adopt English law and English values or even be interested in Enlightenment values, it is this guy.

Sadly, I believe that Whites will never, ever stop drinking the egalitarian Cool-Aid until their Country is taken away from them. Nov 6, 2012 was a “wake-up call” but Whites rolled over and slapped the Snooze button.

Whites have let themselves be convinced that it is racist merely to object to dispossession,
much less to work for their own interests.
Never before has a people been fooled into thinking that there was virtue or nobility in surrendering its heritage,
and giving away to others its place in history,
only whites have been tricked into thinking that love for their own people is somehow “hatred” of others.

The best definition for the Honorless Reprobate Ellison is:
He has shiite for brains.
Yea, that’s an accurate characterization.

As a Minnesota expatriate who grew up in the age of Humphrey and Mondale I am saddened by the fact that ‘Massachusetts on the Mississippi’ has shipped it’s Liberalism from the Twin Cities to outlying areas.
I never thought the rural regions of the Land of 10,000 Taxes would drink the Kool-Aid of the likes of Wellstone, Franken, et al, but Ellison is apparently another step toward the election of politicos who, if their IQ were any lower, would have to be watered twice a week.

Klem Kadiddlehopper on February 27, 2013 at 3:35 PM

Liberals always become unhinged when their lies fail to cover up their dirt.

The upcoming sequestration IS Obama’s fault… lock, stock, and barrel. HE is the guy who pressed for it because he didn’t want to deal with another debt ceiling debate before the election. And HE is the guy WHO SIGNED IT INTO LAW. He’s the guy who has had eighteen months to either offer an alternative or make it painless. Instead, he’s deliberately scare-mongering the public.

Oh, hey, for you social fascist (ahem) “liberals”, there is a difference between the Conservative Party and the Republican Party. If some of you can read, pick up anything by William F. Buckley.

Forget (if Ellison will let you, Charlie) the color. The technique is simple and effective with double-digit IQ voters. Confront, harangue, ridicule, obfuscate, interrupt, filibuster and when the opposition tries to end the filibuster accuse them of being ‘rude’ and ‘racist.’This is the hallmark of the left which NOT coincidentally is the hallmark of any ideology bereft of principles, morality, logic,equity or jurisprudence.

Do any of you remember former Congressman Gus Savage of Illinois? Keith Ellison’s bizarre performance–and I only listened to a brief clip of it on the Hot Talk 560 KSFO Morning Show–and his refusal to allow the host to get a word in edgewise, remind me a lot of Gus Savage’s appearance on CNN’s “Crossfire” years ago.

It’s sobering, nay, horrifying and appalling, to think how much our country is in total free-fall on so many fronts.

but he was reacting to something. Ed ignores that. Context is everything.

verbaluce on February 27, 2013 at 1:34 PM

Ellison was trying to polish his lib street-cred by “taking on” Hannity. Libs have Fox News Derangement Syndrome, and Ellison was showing us just how bad it can get. I would bet the only reason he agreed to appear on Hannity’s show was to be able to get into Sean’s face.

Mallard T. Drake on February 27, 2013 at 7:22 PM

Ellison is only about getting back at whitey.

A lot of that going around.

“Get Whitey” would be a nice movie.

Add Ed Shultz into the mix and it only gets worse. What is up with that place???

Sherman1864 on February 27, 2013 at 8:48 PM

Neither of the are tolerable, really. Ellison is an idiot and he filibusters without making any strong point… and Hannity is smug and repulsive without making any strong point.

Watching this, with not a liberal molecule in my body, I see how Hannity can come across as repulsive to others as Rachel Maddow does to us.

Why is that muslim even allowed in Congress?

SouthernGent on February 27, 2013 at 9:10 PM

There’s no doubt in my mind that half the Congress has the mental power of the representative that just spoke. It scares me that there are people this incomprehensible running our Country.

mixplix on February 27, 2013 at 10:11 PM

I think Ellison’s just pissed because he’s such a little fella.

“Awwww….who’s the little fella? Yes you are. Yes you are.”

Why are you even allowed on the internet, dumb f*ck? Don’t “y’all” have some black people to terrorize?

weew on February 27, 2013 at 8:50 PM

Seriously? Let me get this straight. Hannity was a waste of time for attempting to start a reasonable dialogue with questions which the insipid black man could have had a rebuttal and counter argument, but didn’t? Isn’t DWS Syndrome wearing just a little thin even with liberals?
Just pathetic.

DevilsPrinciple on February 27, 2013 at 11:08 PM

Ellison bothers me because he’s an Islamofascist Muslim Thug who hates white people.

williamg on February 27, 2013 at 11:28 PM

I just watched “The Master” and I was struck by how similar Ellison’s style of argument is to the way the L. Ron Hubbard-like cult leader in the film dealt with skeptics to his “Cause”. When cornered, just talk fast, get emotional, and then assert a bunch of “facts” and wait until your opponent gets sick of dealing with you.

Northside on February 28, 2013 at 12:34 AM

And Ellison is a Congressman? From Minnesota? He sounded like Senator Al Franken in one of his comedy skits. Not meant as an insult, but Minnesota seems to be working hard for their legacy.

Netclimber on February 28, 2013 at 12:56 AM

Something came to my mind. With all the interrupting Ellison did, he should go on TV with Bill O’Reilly. Bill O’s interruptions combined with Ellison’s, if you get them phased just right, could reach critical mass and we’d have energy independence for all of the foreseeable future!

Too bad the voters in MN-05 don’t realize what a waste of time Ellison is. Forget electing a Republican — isn’t there a Democrat in Minnesota’s 5th CD with a little more candlepower than Congressman I-Know-You-Are But-What-Am-I? Holy buckets!

If they would elect a dumb arse comedian, there’s no reason why they shouldn’t elect a dumb arse Muslim.

I pick lint from my arse crack that has greater integrity, character, more intelligence and relevance than anything that has been emitted from your greasy **** maw.

tom daschle concerned on February 28, 2013 at 11:31 AM

Rep. Ellison, the Pee Wee Herman of debate.

CrustyB on February 28, 2013 at 1:26 PM

Ellison is so smart, witty and tough and he knows it!

shick on February 28, 2013 at 2:14 PM

When I saw that Hannity wasn’t going to mute Ellison’s microphone but just let him rant I switched to FBN for an intelligent discussion of real issues. If I had wanted to listen to a blithering idiot rant and rave I would switch to CNN and Piers Morgan.

Forgt it. If Joseph Stalin were on the ballot in the 5th he would win if he had a (D) next to his name.
I should know, I used to live there.
