Daily Wire editor Ben Shapiro said DNC Vice Chairman Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) is the “last person who should be making Holocaust references.”
Ellison recently compared illegal immigrants fleeing Mexico to Jews escaping the Holocaust.
“[Ellison] spent the last 30 years of his life opposing Jews,” Shapiro said.
He noted that, until disavowing his relationship in 2006, Ellison was long tied with Louis Farrakhan’s “Nation of Islam” organization.

MEXICO: AT LEAST 119 PEOPLE KILLED IN 7.1 EARTHQUAKE, EXPLODING GAS LINES, BUILDINGS DESTROYED – PHOTOS
( Daily Mail ) At least 119 people are dead after a 7.1-magnitude earthquake hit Mexico, causing gas line explosions, toppling buildings and forcing thousands to be evacuated into the street.
The tremor hit just hours after emergency drills around the nation on the anniversary of another devastating quake that killed thousands in Mexico City in 1985.
Today’s quake hit near the Puebla state town of Raboso, about 76 miles southeast of Mexico City, at a depth of 32 miles, the US Geological Survey said.
Horrifying images coming out of the country’s capital show rubble strewn across roads and enormous chunks of collapsed buildings laying on the ground with hundreds of terrified locals fleeing onto the streets.
As structures fell around her, local resident Georgina Sanchez, 52, said: ‘I’m so worried. I can’t stop crying. It’s the same nightmare as in 1985.’
It comes just days after another powerful quake – measuring 8.1 – hit Mexico, killing at least 98 people.
At least two people have been killed after a massive 8.2 earthquake struck off the south coast of Mexico triggering tsunami warnings across Central America.
The earthquake was felt across Mexico, shaking buildings in the country’s capital amid reports tremors were detected as a far away as Austin, Texas – more than 1,300 miles from the epicentre.
Experts at the US geological survey say the quake, which toppled houses in Chiapas state and caused buildings to sway violently, struck at 11.49pm last night, 76 miles southwest of the town of Pijijiapan, at a depth of 43 miles.
Terrified residents in Mexico City ran out into the streets after the quake struck, witnesses said. It was the strongest earthquake to hit the capital since a devastating 1985 tremor flattened swathes of Mexico City and killed thousands, Mexico’s civil protection agency said.
The US Tsunami Warning System said widespread hazardous tsunami waves were possible within the next three hours on the Pacific coasts of several central American countries – Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama, Ecuador and Honduras.
- Mexico: Immigrants who opt to return to Mexico will be welcomed with “open arms,” Sada said, offering them assistance with work, finances and education.
- Hondurans forced to return home could face violence from gangs and drug traffickers.
- El Salvador: “We will be lobbying to have legislation as soon as possible that opens a way out, that opens a bridge for the beneficiaries of DACA,”
( Reuters ) The announcement to end DACA, created by former President Barack Obama in a 2012 executive order, came during the final day of talks in the Mexican capital to modernize the North American Free Trade Agreement, adding pressure to already tense conversations between Mexico and the United States.
El Salvador’s foreign relations minister, Hugo Martinez, said on Tuesday that he would meet with members of the U.S. Congress in Washington to push for a solution within the next six months, before DACA’s provisions are set to end, aiming to protect the 30,000 to 60,000 Salvadorans who could be affected.
“It’s a worrisome situation. … We will be lobbying to have legislation as soon as possible that opens a way out, that opens a bridge for the beneficiaries of DACA,” Martinez said.
Guatemala’s foreign relations ministry said in a statement on Tuesday that its U.S. consulates would assist the thousands of Guatemalans protected under DACA, adding that that the ministry is counting on the “humanitarian sense” of U.S. lawmakers to ensure migrant youth are not forced to leave the country where many grew up.
The director of a Honduras migrant aid center, the Center for Attention for Honduran Migrants, called the U.S. decision “very sad,” and said young Hondurans forced to return home could face violence from gangs and drug traffickers.

EVIL! MEXICAN DRUG LORD WHO DISMEMBERED 6-YEAR-OLD GIRL, BURNED HER LIMBS ON FIRE IN FRONT OF FATHER SENTENCED IN U.S. JAIL
A Mexican cartel leader who dismembered a six-year-old girl with an axe then burned her limbs as he made her father watch has been sentenced to multiple life sentences in an American prison.
Marciano Millan Vasquez, 34, was jailed for his involvement in the deaths of 29 people which he carried out for Zetas, a drug gang which operates in northern Mexico, between 2009 and 2015.
Among them was the six-year-old girl who he butchered on the patio of her home in front of her parents to ensure they would ‘remember’ him.
Witnesses described how he laughed as he sawed off her limbs while she was alive then burned them in a fire at the house.
Neither the witness nor the child has been identified in order to prevent gang retaliation.
The killings were all carried out in Mexico but because Millan was working living in San Antonio, Texas, and was arrested there, he was prosecuted in US court and will serve his sentence there.
Vasquez was operating as a regional boss for the violent cartel which is wanted for carrying out 300 deaths in northern Mexico in recent years.
WHITE WOMEN SHUT DOWN THEIR KOOKS BURRITO FOOD TRUCK IN MEXICO FOR ‘STEALING JOBS AND MAKING PROFIT FROM MEXICAN CULTURE’
- ‘Awww, so you nice ladies stole hard-working and low-income Mexican women’s tortilla recipes and are now turning a profit. That’s not white basic privilege at all. #disgusting,’ Alicia Dominguez
- ‘Now that you all boldly and pretty f***ing unapologetically stole the basis of these women’s livelihoods, you can make their exact same product so other white ppl (sic) don’t have to be inconvenienced of dealing with a pesky brown middle woman getting in their way. Great job,’ Shauna MacKinnon
- ‘Stealing is in their nature so I’m not surprised. They’re not creative so they had to get the idea from someone,’ Tee McNeill
( Daily mail ) Two white women have been forced to close their pop-up burrito shop after they were accused of cultural appropriation.
Kali Wilgus and Liz ‘LC’ Connelly opened Kooks Burritos in Portland, Oregon, after taking a trip to Puerto Nuevo, Mexico, last December.
For the first few months, the weekend pop-up shop housed in an taco truck was a smash hit. It gained so much popularity, a local weekly newspaper decided to profile the entrepreneurial duo.
But that’s when the trouble started for Wilgus and Connelly, after quotes they gave to the Williamette Week led to them being accused of stealing their success.
Explaining their trip, Connelly told the newspaper: ‘I picked the brains of every tortilla lady there in the worst broken Spanish ever, and they showed me a little of what they did.
‘In Puerto Nuevo, you can eat $5 lobster on the beach, which they give you with this bucket of tortillas. They are handmade flour tortillas that are stretchy and a little buttery, and best of all, unlimited.
‘They wouldn’t tell us too much about technique, but we were peeking into the windows of every kitchen, totally fascinated by how easy they made it look. We learned quickly it isn’t quite that easy.’
Those comments were latched onto by a food blog in the Portland Mercury, which accused Wilgus and Connelly of ‘preying’ on the women they met in Mexico.
Muslim convert John Rene Rockschiil entered the Metropolitan Cathedral in Mexico City on Monday and stabbed the priest in the neck at the altar while officiating a mass.
A priest who officiated at the Metropolitan Cathedral in Mexico City was stabbed last Monday at 6:00 pm by a middle-aged man who went up to the altar and stabbed a blade into his neck.
According to the archdiocese, the attacker, named John Rene Rockschiil, of Muslim faith according to the Mexican media, was arrested after carrying out the attack with a knife.
After calling the police, a Condor unit from the capital’s public security secretariat arrived in the vicinity of the cathedral, located in the historic city center, to transfer the clergyman to San Miguel Chapultepec hospital.
Some of the testimonies of the parishioners who were in the cathedral emphasize that some of those present detained the 35-year-old man, in addition to providing medical care to the parish priest Miguel Angel Machorro, until the aid services arrived.
