While the President continues his seeming never ending back and forth regarding DACA. The Democratic Party by comparison has remained steadfast in their belief that borders are simply an irrelevant thing of the past. While that alone might seem ludicrous to many of us, leave it to Democratic National Committee leadership to take things to the next level. With DNC Vice-Chair Keith Ellison recently lowering the level of public discourse by dragging out the Nazi comparison modern Liberals seem so obsessed with these days.
Speaking at an event in Minneapolis called “Beyond DACA”. Ellison made his pitch that American Illegals are really just yesterday’s Jews. Stating, “I’m going to tell you right now, I’m one of them people who believes you should give your neighbors sanctuary. If you ask yourself, ‘What would I do if I was a Gentile in 1941 if my Jewish neighbors were under attack by the Nazis? Would I give them sanctuary?’ You might be about to find out what you would do. Will you pass that moral test or will you fail it?”
You can see just how little shame the man has in making his arguably offensive and certainly ridiculous comparison for yourself in this video of his speech below.
The Jews of Nazi Germany broke no laws. They were already full legal citizens when the Nazi administration came into power. How does this compare to people who illegally snuck into America? Letting that go though for a moment. The far more troubling piece of the above video is the idea that deportation is in any way equivalent to a concentration camp or possible extermination. Unless Mr. Ellison is suggesting that residing in Mexico is no better than living in a Concentration Camp, the entire point is simply ludicrous. Mexico might be bad, but it’s certainly not THAT bad.
In addition Keith and other Democratic leaders continue to push the narrative to their voters that ICE agents are busting down doors Gestapo style and breaking apart innocent families all across the country. In reality however Attorney General Jeff Sessions among others, have repeatedly said ICE focuses mainly on tracking down confirmed violent illegal criminals. ICE isn’t looking for Anne Frank in the closet, but rather the violent murderer.
It is important we fully understand what is happening here. That the second in command at the DNC, is by comparing illegal immigrants to WW2 era Jews, also in turn comparing U.S. law enforcement personnel to Nazi’s. It’s an insult that should offend any law abiding American citizen and especially those that serve and protect us.
There is also the fact this entire argument is a bit hard to swallow coming from Ellison specifically. A man who for years defended in his position as a member of the Nation of Islam, (a political movement for Black Muslims) people like avowed Anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan. Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, has never really been able to hide his Islamic based disdain for the Jewish people. Even the Anti-Defamation league opposed his run for Congress citing his “deeply disturbing and disqualifying past statements about Israel.”
Yet here we have this same man calling Conservatives of all types Nazi’s for simply wanting to enforce the current law and keep our country secure. Instead of wasting our time with bad analogies, fearmongering, and throwing insults at American law enforcement personnel. Maybe Mr. Ellison could better serve his constituents by doing some soul searching and publicly addressing where the real racism in present day America is mainly coming from.
