Alt-right leader lauds Ellison for fa­vor­ing racial sep­a­ra­tion

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Seth McLaughlin

The leader of a white na­tion­al­ist group is cel­e­brat­ing Rep. Keith Ellison’s past views on race, say­ing the fron­trun­ner to be­come the next chair­man of the Demo­cratic Na­tional Com­mit­tee was spot-on more than two decades ago when he wrote about the sep­a­ra­tion of races.

Jared Tay­lor, pres­i­dent of Amer­i­can Re­nais­sance, said in a pod­cast ti­tled “We Love Keith Ellison!” posted on the group’s web­site that he agreed with parts of Mr. Ellison’s past writ­ings in which he called for a black state in Amer­ica.

“Who could ask for more than that?” Mr. Tay­lor said af­ter read­ing from a col­umn that Mr. Ellison penned as a stu­dent at the law school at the Uni­ver­sity of Min­nesota un­der the name Keith E. Hakim in which he also called for repa­ra­tions.

“The only thing I don’t care for is he would do this af­ter they had shaken us down for prob­a­bly about a mil­lion dol­lars a head of blacks,” Mr. Tay­lor said. “But in any case, once we have parted ways, that is ac­tu­ally the so­ci­ety we are ask­ing for.”

Af­ter read­ing part of the col­umn, Mr. Tay­lor noted that Mr. Ellison is try­ing to dis­tance him­self from the point he laid out.
