On Nov. 25, the Minnesota News Network featured a radio quote from Congressman Keith Ellison - “The Ferguson verdict reminded me of the Rodney King case.” The Rodney King case was decades ago and did involve police misconduct. The facts that came out from the Ferguson, Missouri grand jury apparently had no impact on Ellison as he caters to his Somalian constituency. It would be refreshing to hear him speak out against Muslim Jihadist but that doesn’t fit his agenda.
Both political parties cater to constituencies but Democrats like the Reverend Al Sharpton, Attorney General Eric Holder and President Obama have set the “Gold Standard” for special interests. We have our own state and local representatives that serve as public representatives while serving or having served as union representatives. Their priorities are policies that increase union representation and the union dues to keep them in power.
The days of government legislating for the good of all are no more.
