Baltimore City Councilman Zeke Cohen appeared on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” this week and attempted to defend statements he had made that compared Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to Nazis.
As you might have guessed, considering the way Carlson treats guests who spew nonsense, things did not go so well for the Democrat.
Carlson asked Cohen why he would sponsor a bill that would make Baltimore a sanctuary city in light of the recent case in Rockville, Maryland, where a 14-year-old girl was allegedly raped by two illegal aliens in a restroom at her school. Their conversation dovetailed into a conversation about ICE officials.
That’s where things began to go south for the councilman, who attempted to explain his support for the bill with a comparison of his great-grandmother, who came to the U.S. to escape the Holocaust. Illegal aliens, Cohen said at a Monday city council meeting, are like his great-grandmother, “who left everything behind, including a family who perished in the gas chambers.”
Carlson confronted Cohen about his statements, arguing that ICE agents are “enforcing laws that would have prevented this heinous crime.” He then asked the councilman one question Cohen couldn’t answer.
“Would you say that to the parents of this girl who was raped? These are Nazis, these Americans who are enforcing immigration laws,” Carlson said. “Why would you say something like that?”
It’s a great question and one that Cohen couldn’t answer. He robotically expressed his sympathy to the girl’s parents but then went on to say that for them to “trot their crime out publicly is really kind of shameful.”
Yes, he actually said that, and then he had the nerve to try to accuse Carlson and others drawing attention to this crime of being race baiters. Take a look:
The only thing shameful is how this man appeared to be more interested in protecting criminal illegal aliens than members of his own community.
It’s this kind of liberal mindset that is making the streets of America unsafe, and it must be stopped before more innocent people are hurt.
