Firebrand Congressman Keith Ellison raised eyebrows across the country over the weekend; telling a progressive rally that “women are dying” because Republicans are winning elections throughout the nation.
Ellison was speaking at the Progressive Change Campaign Committee when he launched into his anti-GOP tirade, telling the packed audience that Democrats “don’t have the right” to lose future elections for the safety of women across America.

“Women are dying because we are losing elections. We don’t have the right to lose a damn election!” screamed Ellison.
The DNC senior official was likely referencing maternal survival rates; statistics which have largely stabilized for decades.

DNC RAGE: Radical Rep. Keith Ellison ENDORSES ANTIFA Terror Group
Deputy Chairman of the Democratic National Committee and Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison openly supported the radical left-wing hate group commonly known as Antifa on Wednesday, posting a photo of himself holding the organization’s “Anti-Fascist Handbook” on social media.
Ellison published the ill-conceived selfie on twitter this week, adding that he “found the book that strike fear in the heart of @realDonaldTrump.”
One key problem for the radical representative: Antifa is considered by FBI Director Christopher Wray as an “active domestic terror” ideology. Speaking with legislators last fall, the Bureau chief blasted the left-wing group over widespread violence at pro-Trump rallies throughout the country.
“While we’re not investigating Antifa as Antifa — that’s an ideology and we don’t investigate ideologies — we are investigating a number of what we would call anarchist-extremist investigations, where we have properly predicated subjects of people who are motivated to commit violent criminal activity on kind of an Antifa ideology,” Wray told a House panel.
PATHETIC: Keith Ellison Says Trump More Dangerous than Kim Jong Un
Hyper-liberal representative Keith Ellison apologized for remarks he made over the weekend that suggested President Donald Trump was more dangerous than North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, saying he regrets his choice of words while describing the escalating nuclear crisis.
Ellison came under fire after criticizing Trump’s “fire and fury” rhetoric, implying the American leader was intentionally escalating the already tense situation.
“North Korea is a serious thing. You have this guy making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there. Kim Jong Un, the world always thought he was not a responsible leader, well he’s acting more responsible than this guy is,” said Ellison. What I’m tell you, is that once you start seeing missile launches… the time for cranking up the anti-war machine is right now.”
Within hours, the liberal representative retracted his comments in an interview with the Washington Post.
“That was one of those I wish I’d not said,” said Ellison. “It’s tailor-made for somebody to misuse. I’d say, he’s being incredibly irresponsible, and he’s putting us in a situation where you could have an accidental launch.”
President Trump doubled-down on his harsh rhetoric against the North Korean dictator last week, assuring Americans around the world that any actions against the US or its allies would be met with a fierce response.
“If [Kim] utters one threat in the form of an overt threat … or if he does anything with respect to Guam or any place else that’s an American territory or an American ally, he will truly regret it and he will regret it fast,” Trump told reporters in New Jersey.
