Progressives have found a new target for their outrage; this time it’s the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency. In fact, some have gone so far as to call ICE a “terrorist organization” and the “Gestapo” in order to galvanize their baseless 'Abolish ICE' movement. Democratic leaders such as New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren have been quick to jump aboard the #AbolishICE bandwagon.
On today's show, Glenn Beck reacted to the absurdity of the Left's ever-outraged, overblown, and inadvertently self-destructive attacks against anything they feel they can associate with President Trump.
"Congresswoman Yvette Clarke called ICE the Gestapo of the United States of America. That is so historically ignorant," said Glenn. "The Gestapo? The murderous Nazi secret police responsible for bringing about the extermination of Jews throughout Europe, responsible for herding them into killing centers where they were literally murdered? The Gestapo guilty of war crimes, responsible for the deaths of at least a million people? ICE is that bad? I think these whimsical politicians are confusing ICE, perhaps, with ISIS. Although not even ISIS is as prolific as the Gestapo was."
