She deserves it…
On Tuesday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled down on her comparison of the situation at the southern border of the United States to the concentration camps of the Holocaust. She was promptly reprimanded by Rep. Dan Crenshaw, who gave her a lesson in reality as well as firing a challenge directly at her. Fellow Texan Steven Crowder also slammed Ocasio-Cortez with a lacerating tweet.
As The Daily Wire reported, on Monday night Ocasio-Cortez said during a live Instagram video, “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.” She also alluded to the Holocaust by adding the words “Never Again,” blathering, “I want to talk to the people that are concerned enough with humanity to say that we should not that ‘Never Again’ means something and that 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.”
On Tuesday morning Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “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. And for the shrieking Republicans who don’t know the difference: concentration camps are not the same as death camps. Concentration camps are considered by experts as ‘the mass detention of civilians without trial.’ And that’s exactly what this administration is doing.”
Crenshaw fired back, “Clearly I need to explain that, in concentration camps, people are unjustly sought out and confined. This isn’t what is happening at the border. Migrants are illegally crossing our border. Most are asylum seekers, thus pending trial, so your expert definition doesn’t apply. Your comments reveal total disregard for our sovereignty & a deep ignorance that belittles the horrors of the Holocaust. If you’re worried about conditions at the border, why don’t you do something about it & support @RepMikeRogersAL’s bill securing billions in humanitarian aid?”
Even one Canadian who considers himself a liberal also took issue with Ocasio-Cortez, writing, “I’m not a shrieking republican. I am a left of centre member of the canadian liberal party. And I find your use of the phrase ‘concentration camp’ utterly baffling. In my opinion it is inappropriate and detracts from otherwise legitimate criticism of what is going on. And I don’t give a flying s*** what ‘historically’ ivory tower academics called it, today it is firmly associated with the Holocaust and the Nazi extermination of the Jews. The far left is so hell bent on labeling everything in the worst terms possible they lose sight of the debate.”
Crowder issued a tweet that was simple and powerful:
Funny how people from other countries are lining up for our “concentration camps.” https://t.co/wjFbbAanfh

AOC – “This is not hyperbole.”(if you have to say it is not hyperbole- you already know it is)
“…It is the conclusion of expert analysis.”- Really? Who were these so-called “experts?” you and the other two stooges in your little congressional club Omar and Talib? lol, what a total joke you are but it is amusing to see really intelligent people like Rep. Dan Crenshaw, Liz Chaney, etc take your ignorant-behind down a peg or two.
A >O< hole, crazy is the only one shrieking as far as I can tell! Let me tell you coast dwellers about the new green deal, it's a load of crap, global warming now called climate change because no one believed in global warming is another pile of crap! I live in Middle America (BEAUTIFUL) pristine Middle America! You can drive the highways and byways in Middle America and you can see acres and acres of farm fields filled with corn, wheat, hay and other crops, you can see miles and miles of rolling prairies and forests! When you travel from NYC to Los Angeles by plane all you are doing is traveling from one smelting pot of pollution to another without ever seeing all the beauty in between!
Trust AOC to just shoot off her mouth before she even knows or understands what she is talking about. I feel sorry for her, she does not have an understanding of the attrocities suffered by the Jewish people. They were not running away from their country, they were deliberately rounded up and murdered! What we have at our borders are illegal immigrants that believe America somehow will take them and give them everything they don’t get in their own country, surprisingly, we do. We can not sustain the hundreds of thousands of illegals flooding into America! Like Crenshaw suggested, get down to the border and see first hand what our officials are trying to deal with. I totally blame the Democrats for not helping with the problems at the border, Democrats are a big problem. Trump 2020! Thanks to the radical left liberals that are all messed up.
Once again AOC opens her mouth and inserts both feet. She really has no idea what a “concentration camp” is, or how one operates. The detained illegals are being fed, housed and given medical attention. ALL of the problems she constantly complains about are being DIRECTLY CAUSED by the Democratic Party’s refusal to allow any assistance to be offered by stonewalling any and all legislation related to aid for these folks. There are literally tens of thousands of illegals being held and there are not enough border patrol agents, not enough places to house the detainees, not enough doctors to treat those that are ill, not enough judges to expedite the hearings and WAY too many illegals running around loose in our country. WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE!

Oh, almost forgot, kudos to Dan Crenshaw and the unnamed Canadian citizen. Your common sense is refreshing!

I was going to make a comment but I changed my mind because I really think nobody gives a sh*T ANYMORE. All we want to do is bitch and complain about every thing but nobody wants to do anything. One thing I know is if by some slim chance the demos win in 2020 we can kiss our asses goodbye. They will destpory this country while we all look on and say, I SURE WISH I HAD THE BALLS TO HAVE DONE SOMETHING ABOUT THOSE DEMOCRATS AND A LOT OF REPUBLICAN BEFORE IT WAS TOO LATE LIKE IT IS NOW. GOD HELP US!
