"He has scheduled a news conference at the federal courthouse in Minneapolis on Wednesday to "take questions regarding complaints, accusations, and anger" over his campaign ads." ....So I bet he'd be really annoyed if we ignored him.

During the Crusades, after negotiating a prisoner release, Richard murdered 2500 prisoners for spite, while Saladin let his prisoners go free without reprisal. Both sides were guilty of blood letting, but 'Christians' were by far the worst in the 9-11th centuries. By the way, whose land does Jerusalem sit on anyway?

The first two posters refuse to acknowledge the Crusades were undertaken to free Christian lands from almost 400 years of harsh Muslim control after Islam swept the region up and even conquered the Christian capital of Jerusalem.

Go ahead and spend your media money in MN 5. There is no chance Ellison will lose. I am Ellison's constituent and our electorate has rejected sexism and bigotry time and again. Can anyone name the GOP candidate in the 5th District?

This is another abhorrent tactic employed by the political christian right to obfuscate the truth and factual information with their myopic fairy tale view of reality. The true threat to our country is not Islam, but homegrown Christian fundamentalism hybridized with exploitative capitalism that is attempting to supplant the gains of the last century with the illusion that everyone can be free, if and only if they worship their god and none other. It is hoped that the electorate in the 5th District will not be swayed by such simplistic and anti-intelligent jingoism from an out of state, one issue pseudo-religious organizations funded by extreme political right zealots.

I saw/heard the ad last night. Half way through I had to MUTE the TV. It was disgusting, no matter which party would run such an ad.
