Ex-girlfriend of Muslim Brotherhood-linked Rep. Keith Ellison says he beat her

Why wouldn’t he have done so? Such behavior is sanctioned in Islamic law:

“Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34

Muhammad “struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?” — Aisha (Sahih Muslim 2127)

 

“Ex-girlfriend’s son says Dem Keith Ellison violently assaulted his mom. Says he has video evidence and abusive, threatening texts,” by Samantha Chang, BizPac Review, August 11, 2018 (thanks to the Geller Report):

Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison, the co-chair of the DNC, has been accused of domestic violence by the son of his ex-girlfriend, Karen Monahan.

The accusations were shared by Debra Hilstrom, a Democrat member of Minnesota’s house of representatives.

Hilstrom tweeted a link to the shocking Facebook post written by Austin Monahan, who had tagged Hilstrom in the hopes of shining a spotlight on the alleged abuse his mom suffered at the hands of Ellison, the first Muslim elected to the United States Congress.

“This post was brought to my attention because I was tagged in this post,” Hilstrom tweeted late Saturday night. “Domestic Violence is never ok. The incidents described are troubling. I call on Keith Ellison to answer these allegations.”

Hilstrom is running against Ellison to be attorney general of Minnesota, which may be why Austin Monahan reached out to her. These skeletons in Ellison’s closet could also explain why he abruptly announced he would not seek re-election to Congress.

In the emotional Facebook post, Austin Monahan accused Ellison of assaulting, harassing, threatening, and verbally abusing his mom.

“My name is Austin Monahan and I am writing this letter on behalf of me and my brother,” Austin wrote. “My brother and I watched our mom come out of pure hell after getting out of her relationship with Keith Ellison.”

Austin continued: “In the middle of 2017, I was using my mom’s computer trying to download something and I clicked on a file, I found over 100 text and twitters messages and video almost 2 min long that showed Keith Ellison dragging my mama off the bed by her feet, screaming and calling her a “f*cking b*tch” and telling her to get the f*ck out of his house.”
Keith Ellison tweeted this photo of Karen Monahan and her son Austin.

Austin added: “The messages I found, were mixed with him consistently telling my mom he wanted her back, he missed her, he knew he f*cked up and we wished he could do things different, he would victim shaming, bully her, and threaten her if she went public.”

Karen Monahan confirmed the abuse allegations. She tweeted that she shut down her Facebook account because she’s afraid of backlash.

I shut down my facebook 2 days ago because I didn’t want my kids seeing post people were posting to me. I really can’t activate it now cause will be worse for them. My son is getting bullied on FB, DO NOT BULLY MY KIDS. tweet to me and leave them out of it

Karen tweeted: “That was my son who posted and its true. He wouldn’t lie about his own mom.”

Monahan also said she is proud of her son for standing up for her.

I am so proud of my son for his courage. But this situation impacted me. If you have anything to say, please say it me and leave him out of it. No nasty comments to him https://t.co/UC84loHz1m

In a statement, Keith Ellison confirmed that he had dated Karen Monahan but denies he abused her.

“Karen and I were in a long-term relationship which ended in 2016, and I still care deeply for her well-being,” he said. “This video does not exist because I never behaved in this way.”…
