Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Refuses Invitation to Visit Auschwitz Concentration Camp
Breitbart ^ | 23 June 2019 | Joel B. Pollak

Posted on 06/23/2019 5:19:45 PM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) refused Sunday to visit the Auschwitz concentration camp, after a Jewish group had invited her to tour that camp and others this summer to educate herself about the facts of the Holocaust.

Last Monday evening, Ocasio-Cortez compared detention facilities for illegal aliens caught crossing the U.S.-Mexico border to “concentration camps,” adding the phrase “never again,” which commonly refers to the Nazi Holocaust.

The remark drew outrage and criticism, even from fellow Democrats. Nevertheless, Ocasio-Cortez doubled down, first claiming that she had not been referring to Nazi Germany, then drawing parallels to the U.S. internment of Japanese-Americans during the Second World War. “I will never apologize for calling these camps what they are,” she tweeted.

Alan Dershowitz, who recently said he would support Joe Biden over President Donald Trump in 2020, said Ocasio-Cortez’s “concentration camp” claim made her a “Holocaust denier.” Bill Maher, host of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, and a determined foe of President Trump, criticized her on his show Friday evening: “If you want to run a campaign based on reparations and concentration camps then it’s going to be very hard to win the election.” Rabbi Shmuley Boteach (who is also a Breitbart News contributor) published a full-page ad in the New York Times:

Numerous Holocaust educational foundations, including Israel’s Yad Vashem, offered to educate Ocasio-Cortez. Senior Yad Vashem historian Robert Rozett wrote in response to Ocasio-Cortez’s use of the term “concentration camp”:

The term “concentration camps” has become a commonly used term for an array of Nazi camps all characterized by profound inhumanity and suffering. Even Auschwitz-Birkenau – the most infamous of the Nazi camps where more than one million people were murdered– was officially termed a Konzentrationslager (Concentration camp) in German.

Those who invited her will eventually come to understand that she's not worthy of setting foot there.

No, she’s afraid her moronic supporters will see the huge difference and what a fool she is.

Her campaign manager idolizes a Nazi, wears T-shirts with him on it.

Network news says nothing.

Cenk Ugyur created "redneck revolt" who also created "Justice Democrats" whom Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez came from.

Maybe we should extend that invitation to Cenk Ugyur

Here’s a video for the antisemitic triplets, AOC, Tlaib, & Omar in addition to Nervous Nanzi who refuses to condemn the triplets for their outrageous statements about Jews and the Holocaust; add the MSM to that list as well.

So the answer is: a chicken does have lips.

And teeth as well.

Liberals can’t stand reality.The world would be such a better place if they could comprehend and rationally deal with life’s situations, but it just doesn’t work that way.

I cannot see how stepping with her anti-semitic feet upon that place where so many died is in any way honoring the dead. It would be a desecration.

A conservative should wear the same shirt and then ask why there was no uproar when that other person wore it.

She can't go because it would put her on the defensive.

Since being elected, she's done nothing but offense, "doubling down" whenever challenged. She even doubled-down on concentration camps by having her allies in the media start citing encyclopedia definitions of "concentration camps" to make the rest of us be the stupid ones.

She can't go now because she would forever be on the defensive afterwards. She's like a shark who can only keep moving forward or drown.

“Or does she know what the movie is about?”

AOC probably thinks it’s about a guy named Schindler who wants to be sure he buys everything he needs when he goes to Costco. So he made a list!;)

Mark Dice made a great video demonstrating what an idiot AOC is for her "concentration camps" comments.
