Anti-Semitic Congressman Keith Ellison compares illegal immigrants to Jews persecuted under Nazi Germany

Representative and Deputy DNC Chairman Keith Ellison 

The Hill reported that earlier this week in Minneapolis Congressman Keith Ellison gave a speech wherein he compared illegal immigrants to being equivalent to Jews hiding from the Nazi's during World War II. Needless to say Ellison's remarks have drawn severe criticism. Most notably from Jewish conservative writer, speaker, lawyer and talk show host Ben Shapiro. Mr. Shapiro is currently the host of  "The Ben Shapiro Show" on iTunes. He like most of the IR writers is a Never Trump Republican and his show is the highest rated conservative podcast in the country.

Carlos Garcia writing for gives Shapiro's 
annihilating response to Ellison's sickening statements:

“Well I mean, there are about one bajillion things with everything he just said,” Shapiro said on Fox News Wednesday.

“First of all,” he added, “Keith Ellison is the last person who should be making Holocaust references considering that he spent the last 30 years of his life opposing Jews. I mean he was very close with Nation of Islam founder Louis Farrakhan in the 1990s  He gave a leadoff speech for a guy named Kalid Muhammed who was so radical that he was thrown out of the Nation of Islam for anti-Semitism.”

“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,” he laughed.

“But beyond that,” Shapiro continued, “the reference with regard to ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement], that ICE is somehow a Nazi force in enforcing the immigration laws is just absurd and the idea that people who are here illegally who have been living in the country in largely freedom, many of their kids are going to public schools, they are taking advantage of public benefits, they have 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,” he concluded.

Whatever problems the Indy Republican gang has with our Grand Old Party and they are legion. The presence of an Anti-Semitic bigot like Keith Ellison as the number two man at the DNC ensures that we will find many flaws to point out in our Democratic counterparts.

Here is a video of Ben Shapiro's ass whooping of Keith Ellison:


  1. Is he really anti-Semitic?

    1. VPI,

      Yes Ellison is a racist, anti-Semitic bigot. If he wants to claim otherwise, then he is free to explain why he pals around with the repugnant Louis Farrakhan. His views on Israel are of no interest to us. His moral relativism and his bad judgment are!

    2. I just don't think those terms should be thrown around lightly. I see no evidence of him being anti-Semitic or racist. The closest I could find was someone telling Alan Dershowitz something; as Dershowitz knows that is hearsay.

    3. He openly defends Louis Farrakhan even though Farrakhan has said: "Adolf Hitler is a great man", and also has stated that "Jews are blood suckers". Ellison has also long been associated with the racist, anti-Semitic and anti-Catholic organization the Nation of Islam. Which is run by Farrakhan. If Ronald Reagan or George Bush had any similar association with a group like the Klan or Neo-Nazi's they would have been pummeled. But Ellison continues to defend racist like Farrakhan to this day!

  2. It looks like he repudiated it. Sure, he probably did it to get elected, but it's a stretch to say he openly defends it.,amp.html

    I'm just looking for at least one comment he had made that you believe makes it him anti-Semitic. I just ain't found one yet. If anything, he seems like a normal politician. That is faint praise ...


    2. Sure, that statement is considered beyond the pale in conventional circles, but a couple of well-respected academics have written a book (which I've read) that tends to agree with Rep. Ellison. However, isn't the fact you cannot enough mention that it is potentially true cause for concern?
