In one of the most outlandish analogies yet, Ellison compared illegal aliens to Jews that were being hunted down by the Nazis during World War II.
What’s next? Claiming that President Trump is secretly building gas chambers?
The batty second banana at the DNC made his incendiary comments during remarks at an event in Minneapolis on Monday.

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, is comparing giving sanctuary to undocumented immigrants in the U.S. to giving shelter to Jews fleeing the Holocaust in Nazi Germany.
“And 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?'” Ellison said Monday in comments on President Trump’s move to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Ellison said that as many as 100 million Americans “are deeply connected to people who have immigrated to the United States, some with official papers, some with none.”
These comments are a bit puzzling coming from Congressman Ellison who is certainly no friend of Israel OR Jews.
In fact, he was recently called an anti-Semite by wealthy Democrat donor Haim Saban and the Jewish liberal organization the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) called into question his ability to lead the DNC due to his hostility toward Israel.
It cannot be seen as anything other than that Ellison is shamelessly exploiting the victims of the Holocaust to protect illegal aliens from being deported.
Still waiting on the condemnations from the ADL and Southern Poverty Law Center on his offensive analogy.
