Marianne Williamson: ICE raids are no different than what Jews faced in Nazi Germany
June 24, 2019
2020 presidential candidate Marianne Williamson compared Immigration Customs and Enforcement raids to what Jewish people faced in Nazi Germany during an event Tuesday in New Hampshire.
Williamson began by identifying herself as Jewish before explaining that in her opinion the phrase commonly associated with the Holocaust, “Never again,” means never letting similar things happen to any group of people, not just Jewish people.
“It’s happening again,” she stated. “There are some people who would say to me, ‘now Ms. Williamson, I think this Jewish analogy, you’ve really gone too far there. This is not the same situation at all.’”
“But ladies and gentlemen some of those people will be deported to places so dangerous that it actually is no different,” Williamson said, and then expounded in an interview with Vice News, “I don’t know about you, but I have visited the Anne Frank House. I’ve been to those places where people hid Jews in the basement. When I think of the fear that some people are going through right now after the president made that announcement, you know, where are they going to go?”
