AOC Defends “Concentration Camp” Remarks

Our favorite socialist congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) refuses to recant and apologize for comparing immigration detention facilities–used by both the Trump and Obama administrations–to Holocaust-era concentration camps, with such egregious remarks as, “The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border, and that is exactly what they are.” She then doubled down: “This administration has established concentration camps on the southern border of the United States for immigrants, where they are being brutalized with dehumanizing conditions and dying. This is not hyperbole.” Amid the outcry, she clarified that the Nazis ran “death camps.” A distinction without a difference, Alexandria? AOC is well on her way to alienating every corridor of the American electorate.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) doubled down on her egregious comparison of the Trump administration’s use of detention facilities on the southern border to concentration camps and the Holocaust.

Ocasio-Cortez made the stunning remarks during an Instagram live video late on Monday night, alleging: “The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps. And, um, if that doesn’t bother you, I don’t, I don’t know, I like, we can have, okay whatever.”

Ocasio-Cortez doubled down on her false statement, tweeting: “This administration has established concentration camps on the southern border of the United States for immigrants, where they are being brutalized with dehumanizing conditions and dying. This is not hyperbole. It is the conclusion of expert analysis.”
