Skip to comments.Nancy Pelosi: I Won't Trash Ocasio-Cortez For Her Idiotic Concentration Camp Remarks…
Posted on 06/19/2019 2:58:45 PM PDT by Kaslin
Well, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) caused House Democrats a lot of heartburn over her past anti-Semitic antics. It led to a fiasco over a non-binding resolution condemning hate, which some Democrats felt singled Omar out. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi might say that the Omar-Ocasio-Cortez faction of the caucus is small, but they sure have clout. A large swath of the 2020 field has backed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezs (D-NY) Green New Deal. What the Omar situation has shown is that Pelosi is either incapable or unwilling to get her rowdy members under control.
Now, Ocasio-Cortez has decided to deliver another hot take: we have concentration camps at the southern border or something. Tim has more:
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," Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez explained.
"This week immigrant children were moved to the same internment camps where the Japanese were held in the early twentieth century," she continued.
As AOC told her followers, "This is not even about a crisis, this is not just about the immigrant community being held in concentration camps and if America will actually remain America, or if we are losing to an authoritarian and fascist presidency."
"I 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," she remarks before getting back to putting together a chair.
Well, folks, AOC must have missed the part where Obama used two former Japanese internment camps to hold detained illegal aliens. The Left has an addiction to calling their enemies Nazis or Hitler. We all know this. Bush was Hitler, the GOP is Hitler, and Trump is Hitler. Its becoming a jokeand this isnt something to take lightly. Even Ms. Ocasio-Cortez knows this; so just quit it. And these remarks should be roundly rejected and flayed for all to see. Its ridiculous, but Pelosi, ever so cautious as to not irk the far left wing of her party, has refused to condemn AOC for her shoddy Nazi reference at the Christian Science Monitor breakfast. The Daily Mails Emily Goodin asked her about it:
Emily Goodin: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is under fire again for some comments she made about concentration camps. I'm wondering if you've talked to some of the freshman members about the power of their words and the use of their social media and what you're thinking of all this back and forth?
Nancy Pelosi: These members of Congress are, they come and represent their districts and their point of view and they take responsibility for the statements that they make. I'm not up to date on her most recent one; I saw something in the news. But, I no I haven't spoken to her about that. I do have some comments to make to my caucus writ large about the political nature of how politically charged the atmosphere is so, understand that while the Republicans have no interest in holding the president accountable for his words, they will misrepresent anything that you say just if you have one word in the sentence that they can exploit.
With Omar, Pelosi pretty much said she was too dumb to know what she was saying. For AOC, its the GOP might have lied about it.
Because that loud mouthed idiot is a rookie compared to Nancy when it comes to making stupid idiotic comments!

Nancy Pelosi is full of ......... tuna.
And baloney. /Captain Obvious
She won’t trash the dumb*ss because the dumb*ss has more power than the b*tch who boinked a rich guy to purchase a congressional seat.
Interesting similarity of incompetency and lack of real talent in the female side of the Dimbulbcrat party.
Trump hasn’t said anything near what AOC said with that holocaust comment.
Michelle obama throws out the first ball at a Nationals game.
1. Trump is literally Hitler.
2. America is a fascist nation.
3. Detention centers are concentration camps.
4. Illegal aliens risk their lives to get in.
“I’m not up to date on her most recent one; I saw something in the news”
What BS, yeah someone said something.
Don’t worry Nance, old broad; we’ll do it for you.
Ass On Call (AOC) shows her true colors more and more every day.
“This week immigrant children were moved to the same internment camps where the Japanese were held in the early twentieth century,” she continued.
... an authoritarian and fascist presidency.”
So now FDR was an authoritarian and fascist? OK. No arguments from me. Let’s not go that way. Let’s let the kids live on the street, like true Democrats would.
Joseph McCarthy was right about the Communist infiltration of our federal government back in the fifties and he was destroyed for speaking out!
Round em up ship em out.
Everyone who lives in AOC's district is a lame brained, anti-semitic a-hole according to Pelozi. Fine with me.
The Obama administration used Fort Sill from June to early August in 2014 to house unaccompanied child illegals during the border crisis of that year. Heres a story from a local TV affiliate in Oklahoma at the time marking the transfer of all children from the base and closure of the facility.
Jeryl Bier has been tracking this story on Twitter for the last several hours and, try as he might, cant find any references to the bases past as an internment camp when Obama chose to turn it into a temporary detention facility:
It appears she is not good with words.
She referred to the “home of the free” and everyone who knows the words to our National Anthem knows it is “the land of the free and the HOME OF THE BRAVE.”
That is petty of me, but she deserves every tiny bit of criticism she gets
