Last week, the vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee Keith Ellison compared allowing sanctuary to DACA recipients to sheltering Jews during the Holocaust.
Speaking to students at the Minneapolis Community and Technical College, Ellison said the decision was a moral one which put people back in time as a gentile facing the Nazis.
Check it out:
Editor-in-Chief at the Daily Wire Ben Shapiro replied to Ellison’s ludicrous comparison, saying, “comparing our law enforcement officers at ICE to Nazis is about the most insulting thing…”
Per Daily Wire:
Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro appeared on Fox News on Wednesday to respond to Ellison’s insane ideas. Speaking with Martha MacCallum, Shapiro said:
Well, I mean there are about one bajillion things wrong with everything that he just said. First of all, Keith Ellison is the last person who should be making Holocaust references considering that he spent the last thirty years of his life opposing Jews. I mean, he was very close with the Nation of Islam founder Louis Farrakhan in the 1990’s; he gave a lead-off speech for a guy named Khalid Muhammad, who is so radical that he was thrown out of the Nation of Islam for anti-Semitism.
He’s tried to back off of that in recent years, but Alan Dershowitz said that if Keith Ellison had been appointed head of the DNC, he would have left the Democratic Party wholesale.

Keith Ellison is not the guy to be making this particular reference. To begin, if Keith Ellison had been around in 1941, I have my doubts about what he would have done with Jews trying to hide from Nazis. But beyond that, the reference with regard to ICE, that ICE is somehow a Nazi force – enforcing the immigration laws – is just absurd. And the idea that people who are here illegally, who have been living in the country, largely in freedom – many of their kids are going to public schools, they’re taking advantage of public benefits, of jobs here – the idea that this is the same thing as making legal citizens of your country illegal and then throwing them into concentration camps or gassing them is just beyond the pale. It’s insane language from Ellison, but nothing shocking considering who Ellison is.
