Moral Authority: Israel's Holocaust Memorial Center Rebukes AOC's 'Concentration Camp' Ignorance

Excerpt:

By now you're aware of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's latest embarrassment, in which she's called US detention facilities at the Southern border "concentration camps." It wasn't a vague comparison. She said the government centers are "exactly" that, going on to invoke the famous post-Holocaust "never again" vow. This is ignorant and hyperbolic. Rather than step back from her comments, she's doubled and tripled down, further humiliating herself, along with elements of the Left working overtime to spin and dissemble in her defense. Let's set aside the fact that House Democrats have thus far refused to move on President Trump's $4.5 billion budget request to address the humanitarian aspects of the border crisis by improving and expanding detention conditions and streamlining the asylum claim adjudication process, which even the liberal New York Times editorial board has endorsed. Let's do the same on the reality that these facilities were in operation, albeit less overwhelmed, during the previous administration, without attracting this sort of apocalyptic posturing and faux indignation from the Left.

AOC made the assertion that detaining unlawful entrants into sovereign US territory in facilities until their asylum claims can be formally processed is "exactly" tantamount to running concentration camps, employing the aforementioned "never again" slogan, which clearly and unambiguously raises the legacy of the Holocaust. After getting called out for this illiterate statement, the freshman Congresswoman tried to draw a distinction between concentration camps and death camps, quasi-pretending that this wasn't necessarily a Holocaust reference (although she also quasi-confirmed that it was). Some of her fellow travelers contorted themselves in similar fashion, laboring to excuse and justify what she said. Most simply ignored the telltale "never again" component, which renders other efforts at tendentious and pedantic hair-splitting moot. She said what she said, and her implication was not subtle. Despite a whirlwind of "actually's" from her Twitter defense attorneys, a number of mainstream Jewish groups heard her loud and clear. For instance, she earned this pushback from a nonpartisan organization in her home state:

Then came what should be the moral coup de grace in this absurd sideshow, delivered by the team at Jerusalem's world-renowned (and extraordinary, if you've never visited) Holocaust research and memorial center. If such a commodity as Absolute Moral Authority exists, Yad Vashem possesses it on this subject. For thinking people, this verdict is debate-resolving:

.@AOC Concentration camps assured a slave labor supply to help in the Nazi war effort, even as the brutality of life inside the camps helped assure the ultimate goal of "extermination through labor."

She is just another TOOL (A man or woman with a hugely over-inflated ego, who in an attempt to get un-due attention for their self, will act like a jackass, because, in their deluded state, they will think it's going to make them look cool, or make others want to be like them. This person may even insincerely apologize later on, but only in an attempt to get more attention, or to excuse their blatantly intentional, and unrepentantly tool-ish behavior, also someone whose ego FAR exceeds their talent, intelligence, and likeability) in the Democrats arsenal. Trot out the inbred, brain-dead, monosyllabic garbage and get your check at the end of your speech, no matter how stupid, ingnert, foolish you are!

She is stupid in a class by herself. It won't be long before she tops this one. And this one is pretty bad.

I wonder if Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ever talked to a US soldier that liberated a Nazi run concentration camp during WWII or even watched the movie Schindler's List.

She is uneducated and will never take Pelosi's job.

AOC, you're 15 minutes of fame are over and you need to go back to bartending.

Sir, here is your rum and coke.

She is much like a couple of the leftists that post here. They trot out the most absurd, moronic, and intellectually bankrupt arguments and honestly believe they have delivered brilliance on a silver platter to the unwashed.

Stupidity so deep that you canít even recognize your own stupidity. I have a seen a couple_examples of that here at RNtoo.
