Ocasio-Cortez: Progressive Democrats are Frustrated with Pelosi

Friday, 21 Jun, 2019

The Trump administration recently opened up the Fort Sill Army Base to hold children who have entered the country illegally, something the Obama administration had used for the same objective. This comes amid bipartisan scrutiny of multiple "inappropriate touching" claims against Biden.

He also criticized Democratic leadership for not condemning Ocasio-Cortez's remarks, including House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.). They call their cells "dog pounds" & 'freezers.' I will never apologize for calling these camps what they are. Abe Foxman, formerly the director of the Anti-Defamation League, told Jewish Insiderthat "such ignorant comparisons trivialize the Holocaust and thereby undermine the lessons of history we must learn".

AOC could have used the term "detention centers" and would have had plenty to say about the administration's politicizing of an issue that involves both the terrorizing of central American families which is driving them to seek shelter and livelihood north of the border, as well as America's own self-image as a nation of immigrants.

NBC "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd called out U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for doing migrants "a tremendous disservice" by comparing U.S. detention camps at the U.S. -Mexico border to Nazi concentration camps.

In her social-media remarks, the freshman congresswoman said she wants to talk to those "who are concerned enough with humanity to say that "never again" means something".

"I don't use those words to just throw bombs", says Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in this weird rant.

Omar (D-MN) re-tweeted a video clip on Thursday in which CNN commenter Angela Rye makes the argument that the United States is indeed on the road to having "death camps".

"And for the shrieking Republicans who don't know the difference: concentration camps are not the same as death camps. She does not understand history", he continued.

"Never again" is the phrase that Jews all over the world use to make sure that the extermination between 1939 and 1945 never happens again", Hemmer said, "and she's using concentration camps to describe what's happening on the Southern border.

"But Congresswoman, tens of thousands were also brutalized, starved, and ultimately died in concentration camps", he added. Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer threw a similar fit, and Ben Shapiro cracked a joke about AOC being stupid.

Here's one good clue on distinguishing between USA detention centers for immigrants and Nazi concentration camps: in the United States the worst that can happen to you is to be expelled to Mexico.

'A presidency that creates concentration camps is fascist and it's very hard to say that'. How in the world is that acceptable?

But if we're to go by the definition Andrea Pitzer has used, which has the support of other historians, concentration camps are used for "mass detention of civilians without trial".

Many conservative politicians and analysts have said Ocasio-Cortez owes every Jew an apology for the comparison.
