Ocasio-Cortez: U.S. ‘Is Running Concentration Camps on Our Southern Border’

"And that's exactly what this administration is doing", she tweeted. This comes amid bipartisan scrutiny of multiple "inappropriate touching" claims against Biden.

"Mann joins such disgraces as NY socialist Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and MSNBC host Chris Hayes in their absurd and unsafe rhetoric that resulted in them being called out by the Auschwitz Museum", the GOP campaign group blasted while linking to a Washington Examiner article.

"I think Congresswoman AOC needs to apologize", he stated.

"They are concentration campus", she said.

Ocasio-Cortez responded to Todd by claiming she never meant to compare border patrol detention camps to Nazi death camps, but her earlier comments and later retweets put that assertion into question.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who sparked a firestorm of criticism after describing detention centers for illegal immigrants on the USA southern border as "concentration camps" on Monday, doubled down on her comments on Wednesday.

"I don't use those words to just throw bombs", says Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in this freakish rant. "Because people like the Deputy Ocasio-Cortez refuse to accept and to help us to Fund beds and humanitarian care in the detention camps".

'The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of the free is extraordinarily disturbing and we need to do something about it'.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has apparently once again managed to stir things up on social media by arguing that U.S. immigration authorities are running "concentration camps" on the country's southern border.

"Before Representative Ocasio-Cortez makes a statement like that, I would suggest that she actually visit Auschwitz, and try to understand what actually took place there", Endowment for Middle East Truth founder and president Sarah Stern told JNS.

"Learn about concentration camps", said the tweet, which was directed at Ocasio-Cortez. Andrea Pitzer, who wrote One Long Night: A Global History of Concentration Camps, said, "We have what I would call a concentration camp system - and the definition of that in my book is mass detention of civilians without trial".

"For the shrieking Republicans who don't know the difference: concentration camps are not the same as death camps".

The comments immediately sparked outrage from many, including the World Center For Holocaust Research, Yad Vashem. Instead, Ocasio-Cortez's defenders, who spent most of Tuesday and Wednesday explaining precisely how their pet politician was historically correct to both Ocasio-Cortez's critics and accomplished Holocaust historians, turned their guns on Chuck Todd.

I referenced the words of Fox News host Bill Hemmer this morning, which reflect not only my feelings, but the feelings of any reasonable human being who heard what AOC said.

Here's one good clue on distinguishing between U.S. 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. How in the world is that acceptable? "Does she not owe every Jew on this planet an apology?"
