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-Cortezs concentration camp claim made her a Holocaust denier. Bill Maher, host of HBOs 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 its 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 Israels Yad Vashem, offered to educate Ocasio-Cortez. Senior Yad Vashem historian Robert Rozett wrote in response to Ocasio-Cortezs 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.

Then, STFU about concentration camps, leftist puke.
ALC is afraid she might see the truth!
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.
Maybe we should extend that invitation to Cenk Ugyur
She cant even watch Schindlers List.
Or does she know what the movie is about?
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.
Don Schoo “Liberation of the Buchenwald Concentration Camp”
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.
They knew she’d never accept.
A conservative should wear the same shirt and then ask why there was no uproar when that other person wore it.
Dan Aykroyd.... AOC, you ignorant slut!!!
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!;)
