These two have hijacked the Democratic party…
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D- MN) backed Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) claim that migrant detention centers are modern-day “concentration camps” during an interview with Public Radio International Thursday.
Omar definitively stated that “people are being put in camps” and defended Ocasio-Cortez’s assessment, accusing her critics of conflating concentration camps with death camps.
And when you think about the definition, if we separate it from death camps, I would say these are camps and people are being concentrated in them. And so that’s the general definition. I think a lot of people are conflating what a death camp looks like or a specific removal of people. These people are coming to the border. We are removing them from the border. We are placing them in camps. Some of them are being removed from communities and being put in what we’re calling detention centers — but are essentially camps. There has to be a way for us to have this conversation without calling people names and accusing them of things when they are just having a general honest conversation on how detrimental this is.
Omar did not go as far as describing migrant detention facilities as “death camps,” but she insinuated that it was just the beginning of the process.
“When you talk about the process of de-humanizing people so that you can exterminate them, there is a process,” she explained, accusing the Trump administration of engaging in dangerous rhetoric.
“When you are constantly engaging in the kind of rhetoric this administration has engaged in — when it comes to immigrants and people who are seeking asylum and refugees — we have to be alarmed,” she said.
“It is very worrisome. When we say ‘never again,’ that means we have to be vigilant that that doesn’t happen under our watch as we stay politically correct and try to find the proper words to use or even worse look the other way,” she added.
Ocasio-Cortez sparked the political dispute during an Instagram live video streamed Monday evening.
“That is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps,” she said of migrant detention centers.
“The fact that concentrations camps are now an institutionalized practice in the Home of the Free is extraordinarily disturbing and we need to do something about it,” she continued.
She further explained that she was only interested in talking to people who were “concerned enough with humanity to say that ‘never again’ means something.”
“I don’t use those words to just throw bombs,” she added. “I use that word because that is what an administration that creates concentration camps is. A presidency that creates concentration camps is fascist, and it’s very difficult to say that.”
On Thursday, Dominik Tarczyński, a member of Poland’s Parliament, sent a letter to the New York lawmaker, inviting her to fly to Poland to “study the concentration camps here for real.”
With this letter, I am formally inviting @AOC to come to Poland,where Adolf Hitler set up the worst chain of concentration camps the world has ever seen, so that she may see that scoring political points with enflamed rhetoric is unacceptable in our contemporary Western societies pic.twitter.com/ivOTfmiCfo

Ill-han would support that twisted AOC, they are two peas in a pod, they don’t ever seem to support white Americans, too bad without us, they would be nothing! Ill-han would be in a Muslim refugee camp in Somalia and AOC would, well she would still be a barmaid! Which she should go back to doing, best education she could have hoped for, she learned nothing in college apparently. Couple of idiot wantabees.
WHEN, CAN, ‘WE, THE, ‘PEOPLE’-ELIMINATE, THOSE, ‘TRAITOROUS/ UNINTELLIGENT/AMERICA-HATING-‘HUMANOID’S? I, ‘DISAGREE & GET ANGRY-A LOT-WITH PELOSI’S IDEAS-BUT, AT LEAST I KNOW-SHE IS A PATRIOT’! JUST, ‘ON TH WRONG SIDE’! BUT, EVEN MS. PELOSI-MUST, BE, ‘SICK & DISGUSTED’-WITH THESE, STUPID/TRAITOROUS, *ITCHES!
When are the folks in new York going to get rid of tisi brainless twit? Her 15 minutes of fame are long over. But wait, she’s great for a laugh if even that but on second thought, she’s dangerous as there are actually people believing this idiot and God help us if this takes flight, just sayin’. For those on the fence take a look at California for the real as it gets, ’nuff said.
” there are actually people believing this idiot ”
Makes One Wonder Just HOW MANY of These Idiots Believers Are Muslims ??? Vs a True American ???
So once again the Three Stooges (I expect Talib to chime in any minute now) have agreed that
“some people did something” i.e. the Nazis -killed millions of Jews in poison showers, worked to death, starved to death, beaten, shot, brutalized…after these innocent citizens were targeted for their religious beliefs and forcibly packed into cattle cars and shipped to concentration “death camps” …and she is equating that to Detention centers set up (under previous presidents including Bill and Barry Obama) for the mass influx of Illegal aliens who break our laws and enter our country in violation of said laws. Where they get three meals a day, clean water, formula and diapers, beds (unless we are so overcrowded with illegals clamoring to get in) that we run out, medical attention, education, soccer fields, TVs, pool tables in some, and for many the most affluent lifestyle they have known while in detention.
Do you see any shaved heads, numbers forcibly tattooed on their forearms, have 14-hour workloads, one small portion of food a day – if that- NO This is not a DEATH CAMP- You are right about that!
So leftist stop trying to use the HOLOCAUST as your political plaything the horrors that happened there are beyond imaginable and NOTHING like what is happening to these people who are fighting to get into our country most of which will do anything including staying in detention centers if that gives them the chance. So Shut your Pie Holes AOC and Omar your pathetic attempt to white-wash her comments and the BS – we know what the definition of is- is- Is insulting to every human alive who has any sense of moral decency and reality!
Maybe they should be sent back to their own countries to live for a year or two….then come on back and tell us how terrible the USA is.
Maybe these two (and the other one) should go back and live in their own Country’s for a year or two, then come on back and tell us how horrible the US is….
MAYBE ALL THREE SHOULD GO BACK AND LIVE IN THERE OWN COUNTY BUT NEVER COME BACK!!!!!!
As one astute observer opined, these would be the only concentration camps the world has ever known where people voluntarily enter? The insanity of these two is beyond belief.
