Angry Jewish mob has demanded Ocasio-Cortez’s resignation after her controversial comments, comparing United States’ detention centers as concentration camps.
Also, Holocaust survivors spoke out against Ocasio Cortez, saying she knows nothing about concentration camps.
Several Jewish groups and pro-Israel groups condemned Ocasio-Cortez’s statement but a lot of people on the left defended her as usual.
Six million Jews were killed in the Holocaust. It is disgraceful for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to compare our nation’s immigration policies to the horrors carried out by the Nazis. We would hope that Rep. Ocasio-Cortez knows better, but sadly, she does not,” said Republican Jewish Coalition on Tuesday.
Endowment for Middle East Truth founder and president Sarah Stern told JNS.
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, Her statement devalued the horrors of the Holocaust and of the 6 million who were systematically and purposely murdered. Statements such as these are ill-informed and flippant, and simply illustrate her vast ignorance.
National president of the Zionist Organization of America Mort Klein said;
the real story is that the U.S. government ran out of space and has to temporarily house minor teenagers who crossed illegally into the U.S. at an army base—something that former President [Barack] Obama also did. Comparing this to the horrors of the Holocaust death camps is a sin. AOC must be censured by her colleagues for this mindless and moronic analogy. She doesn’t belong in Congress making decisions on behalf of her fellow American citizens.
Despite the backlash from every side and people demanding her resignation, Ocasio-Cortez, the freshman congresswoman said she wants to talk to those;
who are concerned enough with humanity to say that ‘never again’ means something.
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,”
Ocasio-Cortez warned, “We are losing to an authoritarian and fascist presidency.”
don’t use those words lightly, I don’t use those words to just throw bombs. 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.
These are the type of people the democrats wants running our country and economy into the ground, I hope with everything that is happening, the American people who are “WOKE” we vote the right people into office in 2020.
