Keith Ellison Gaslights Rural Minnesota
– John Gilmore sheds light on Keith Ellison’s gaslighting campaign in rural Minnesota
– Takes to task Stephen Montemayor, “the Star Tribune’s go to reporter for dhimmi coverage”
– Brings common-sense perspective on who are the real victims of real hate crimes in the world: Christians and Jews
Recently, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison ventured into the rural parts of Minnesota in order to set people there straight about how the forced importation of uneducated, low skilled, unassimilable, refugees make their lives better and how dissent from this diktat is “hateful.”
Bad message, bad messenger, but that’s part & parcel of any gaslighting effort.
This attack, for that is what it is, on rural Minnesota comes close on the heels of the New York Times hit job, about which I wrote immediately below.
Stephen Montemayor, the Star Tribune’s go to reporter for dhimmi coverage, wrote a story that couldn’t be distinguished from a press release from the Ismaofascist AG. Or Islamofascist Ilhan Omar. Or Islmofascist CAIR.
He’s at their service and it shows. Media today are propaganda organs for the Left and should not be taken seriously with respect to that upon which they claim to report.

Still, it’s worth following Montemayor’s “reporting,” if no other reason than to call it out for his relentless service on behalf of The Cathedral. He starts with an unverified report of a “hate crime” and quickly hits his stride bolstering Minnesota’s Attorney General’s jihad on Wrong Think. Montemayor makes the wholly unsupported allegation that there is “a rising number of episodes of intolerance against immigrants and minorities” in rural Minnesota.
It’s always good to remember that when our dishonest media say “hate crimes” are increasing, they almost always refer to “reports” of such being made to the FBI. What they don’t tell their readers is that those reports are simply collected; they are not, in fact, verified or found to have actually happened. Feel free to report your own “hate crime” today: there’s no downside because no one will bother checking up on you. Some groups know this very well. CAIR, for example.
As anticipated, the Star Tribune reporter cites the New York Times hit piece that I wrote about. Once you figure out The Cathedral, many things are predictable. These stories are coordinated, never spontaneous and exist to advance a false narrative.
It’s cute the media don’t realize we see them.
Ellison is quoted toward the end of this tedious piece of agitprop as saying “What’s clear is these people are organizing. They’re here in Minnesota and they are violent and they’re willing to stab and hurt people while hiding behind the First Amendment.”
Was he talking about Somalis at St. Cloud’s Crossroads Mall? Those stabbings? Or was he referring to the straight up violent Antifa for which he has shown much fondness?
And “hiding behind the First Amendment?” Here he gives his game away, which is suppression of speech, censorship. The First Amendment never protects violence and never has. So what does he mean? He means he wants to silence speech with which he doesn’t agree: yours.
Montemayor has Ellison justifying his repression tour of rural Minnesota by referencing the Christchurch, New Zealand mosque shooting that killed 51 people. Please.
Would he justify policing the Muslim community for the slaughter, less than a month later, of more than 100 Nigerian Christians at the hands of Muslims? No, of course not; you see very well how this gaslighting works.
In fact, if we in Minnesota were to pay equal minded attention to what’s going on in the world, we’d be protecting Christians and Jews who are murdered daily by adherents of the religion of peace. “Christians living in a Muslim country are ‘143 times more likely’ to be killed by a Muslim than vice versa,” reported the Voice of Europe on March 18th of this year.
When you have mass Muslim migration, like that which has happened in France, Robert Spencer informs us “with 66 dead a year on average, Frenchmen are exactly ten times more likely to be murdered by a Muslim than a Muslim being killed by a non-Muslim terrorist anywhere in the Western world.” Not just in France mind you, anywhere in the Western world.
Who’s really at risk of harm and from whom? The answer to that question is the last thing Minnesota media will answer.

Ellison deleted the tweet you see pictured at the top of this column. So far, I’ve not seen Stephen Montemayor report this fact, let alone ask the Attorney General about it. The same goes for the rest of Minnesota media.
Here’s a man who endorses the violence of Antifa, or at a bare minimum, has never once condemned it, dispatching himself to rural Minnesota to lecture others about their purportedly violent tendencies. That which they themselves are guilty of will be projected onto others.
The sanctimonious editorial board of the Star Tribune gives them cover. That board consists of a handful of unremarkable, mediocre people on the Regressive Left. They have no moral authority.
In addition to the support of Antifa, our gaslighting Attorney General apparently didn’t spend much time in the rural areas of the state because shortly after this PR stunt he was seen warmly embracing the rancid, anti semitic, anti white, terrorist loving Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn of the United Kingdom.
In a way, I was impressed with the sheer brazenness of Ellison, which brazenness comes from knowing he’ll never be held to account by Minnesota media. Where he stops and the other starts is difficult to discern.

Muslims are more likely to report fake hate crimes than any other group in America except college students and even then, there can be some overlap, according to investigative reporter Andy Ngo. Yes, that Andy Ngo who was recently beaten up by Portland Antifa and sent to the hospital with a brain bleed.
Any condemnation from local media about a reporter being violently attacked and injured? Anything from Keith Ellison? Anything from those preening moralists at the Star Tribune editorial board? To ask the questions is to have your answers.
Andrew Yang, and eventually Joe Biden, to their credit, did condemn the attack on Ngo. I no longer ask the limp dick question “But what if conservative affiliated groups had done the same thing? What would the media be saying?”
If I wanted to engage in an exercise of cringe uselessness I’d read “The Federalist” or attend yet another of that grifter Candace Owens’ appearance at the Center of the American Experiment. This is one Boomer who doesn’t respond to Boomer bait, who recognizes it for the problem that it is: keeping them asleep, pacified, optimistic when there is no cause.
Joe Sobran once said of the conservative movement “It was all a game, or a way of making a living.”
Even in the Age of Trump, this remains true.
It is worth noting, however, that Peter Beinert, on July 4th no less, wrote that there was almost no support on the Left for Antifa so why do conservatives insist there is? Yet Jeffrey Goldberg, his editor at “The Atlantic” tweeted a comparison of Antifa to the American troops landing on the beaches of Normandy. Yes, it’s a mystery how Antifa has been given a pass.
Did local media republish the photo of Keith Ellison at the 2018 Minnesota State Fair with Portland Antifa leader Luis Enrique Marquez? Of course not but thanks to Big League Politics you can see it for yourself.
These things happen, are allowed to happen if not promoted outright, because of The Cathedral. I may be banging on about this concept for awhile but only because I think it affords Minnesotans an exceptional understanding as to much of what is happening around them. To know how to best respond, one has to best understand what is going on. The Cathedral gets us most of the way there.
And what is really happening?
Pat Buchanan recently put it succinctly: “In half a lifetime, many Americans have seen their God dethroned, their heroes defiled, their culture polluted, their values assaulted, their country invaded, and themselves demonized as extremists and bigots for holding on to beliefs Americans have held for generations.”
Instead of robust support for those Americans, we get moral cretins like Ilhan Omar who hates the country that gave her refuge, whose own native country in a hundred years couldn’t achieve a quarter of what America has, even as we’re expected to celebrate Somali straw huts on Lake Street or in some pathetic Somali “museum.” We get Islamofascists like Keith Ellison, who the dumbest republicans in the nation couldn’t defeat when he ran for Attorney General, but who pretends to moral virtue while supporting Antifa and meeting with Jeremy Corbyn.
Far more than the ersatz sophisticated “conservatives” I know in the Twin Cities, most of whom are good only for lining up for (yet another) paycheck on a (yet another) sure to fail campaign, or who cashed out to become lobbyists while pretending to make a difference, or who suck up to the Left and local media for fear they’ll be called names, rural Minnesotans have the courage that comes from knowing they are right.
Rural Minnesotans in particular understand the stakes and refuse to be cowed by a far left Attorney General and his handmaidens in the press. They refuse to let another Rotherham happen in their midsts because Rotherham happened by degrees. They insist on stopping those degrees every step of the way. And there is no other way, despite the condescension or the all out attacks on them.
