Sen. Lindsey Graham slammed newly elected New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for comparing Central American asylum seekers in the migrant caravan to Jews fleeing Nazi Germany during WWII.
I recommend she take a tour of the Holocaust Museum in DC, Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, tweeted Monday. Might help her better understand the differences between the Holocaust and the caravan in Tijuana.
Graham was responding to a tweet sent by Ocasio-Cortez, in which she compared previous refugee groups including Jews during WWII to the current migrants fleeing Central America.
Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isnt a crime, Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Sunday. It wasnt for Jewish families fleeing Germany. It wasnt for targeted families fleeing Rwanda. It wasnt for communities fleeing war-torn Syria. And it isnt for those fleeing violence in Central America.

Do not piggyback on the slaughter of Jews and others persecuted by the Nazis.
I dont think the Jews were waving the German flag when they came here.

Ocasio is like a chicken wing factory employee fleeing the coop for Capitol Hill.
She’s applying Godwin’s Law, only she’s not smart enough to even understand she’s doing it.
WHERE is an outraged JEWISH DEMOCRAT!!!!!?
Let a Republican draw a parallel between Christians fleeing MUSLIM Nations with Jews fleeing NAZI Germany and JEWISH DEMOCRATS would come out of the woodwork to condemn it EVEN THOUGH it is much more comparable.
EVERY REPUBLICAN should be calling on her to take back this outlandish comment and challenging Democrats, especially JEWS, to repudiate this STUPID comment.
Where is the JDL and all the other Jewish Organizations, with hair-triggers, waiting to condemn anything compared to the Holocaust!?
Hey, Occasional Cortex, no one is gassing those invading the US, nor are their bodies being cremated, nor are their assets being seized, not is there any attempt to wipe out their culture, or evidence that they ever existed...
...you stupid, Leftist, America-hating $hitheel. Stop using my dead relatives for your political purposes, among which is to destroy the country that gave my family both refuge and opportunity. In short, GFY, bitch!
And those bodies in the caravan are a hell of a lot heftier. Shame on this stupid screaming mouth millenial and the people who elected her.
She needs to be challenged every time she opens her mouth. I hate that she gets more publicity that way but she needs to know that no one (except her ignorant constituents) are swallowing her swill. She also needs to come up with pictures of Jews leaving German in masses like the invaders at the US/Mexico border from Central America. Cough up the proof, witch or shut up. She is stupid enough to believe that the train boxcars were full of Jews fleeing Germany. She needs an IQ test before she can be seated in the House in January.
She can spread your socialism to your own borough but don’t expect the country to listen to it - or the Senate as it appears they won’t either. Good for Lindsay!
It looks like she’ll have one foot in her mouth the entire two years she’s in the House and then I hope she will be headed back to the sewer she came from.
~~She can spread your socialism~~ = “her socialism”
For the comparison to be correct, the Jews would have had to be in the majority. Then some Jews would have had to be fleeing some kind of persecution from some other Jews. Pretty sure that’s NOT what happened in Germany and the rest of Europe under Hitler’s rule.
You're right. It's not only tacky and dreadful, it minimizes the horror of what real Nazis did...
By the time Hitler put Europe into war in 1937, Jews were less than one-half of one percent of Germany’s 67 million citizens. Most of Germany’s peak population of 500k Jews left in the few years after 1933.
It was the socialist party (nazi’s) in Germany that killed the Jews. The democrat party here is the one with the thugs in the streets just a few steps away from being nazi’s.
Hasn’t a clue.
When Lindsey did his 180 during the Kavanaugh debacle, I vowed not to smear him at least for the rest of the year....not having any trouble keeping that vow...
Every time she opens her mouth...
This horsed toothed, bug-eyed idiot is an embarrassment. What an ignorant fool. She’s about as vacant as they come.
