    During an interview with the BBC congressman, Keith Ellison who is of the Islamic faith harshly criticized the many critics of the proposed Islamic community center near ground zero, claiming that they were religious bigots who used Fox News as a a mouthpiece.

    “The fact is that the real driver of this thing is not 9/11 families, The real driver of it are people who openly proclaim that Barack Obama is not a citizen. The real organizers of this thing are people who are just proponents of religious bigotry. Nothing more, nothing less”

    “Around the country, this thing is emblematic of a larger issue, There have been anti-mosque efforts in Kentucky, one gentleman who wants to burn a Qur’an in Florida, there have been efforts in Wisconsin and in the Chicago area and others.”
