Keith Ellison calls for Democrats to unite, evoking Civil Rights era, hypocritical stance on ‘divisiveness’

TIME Magazine published an article by Keith Ellison yesterday where the Minnesota evokes Civil Rights language in his call for Democrats to unite. Ellison’s strong attack on President Trump and the GOP is entirely rooted in the Democrats being the correct and only choice: “When Democrats fail to unite, the American people pay.”

“We have a President who actively seeks to divide the American people,” America’s first Muslim Congressman says. “Now, more than ever, every person who values equality, fairness, and respect must come together for our country. But unity doesn’t just happen. It takes work and an understanding that we are stronger when we fight for opportunity for all. These are, after all, the core values we share.”

Critics would be quick to point out how divisive Ellison sounds with his record of a progressive agenda “I worked together with Sanders and Clinton delegates to produce the most progressive Democratic platform ever. I was a strong advocate of the final product, and urged others to support it, too. It’s a platform all Americans can be proud of, unlike the divisive Republican platform that embraces LGBTQ discrimination, mass deportation, and privatizing Medicare.”

Harsh words from someone claiming they are uniting and not dividing.

“So when Republicans bring divisiveness, we have to bring the unity. It’s who we are. And it’s how we take our country back.”

Below is the audio narration of the post made available by TIME.

The full transcript is on the next page.
