Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Refuses Invitation to Visit Auschwitz Concentration Camp
Breitbart ^ | 23 June 2019 | Joel B. Pollak

Posted on 06/23/2019 5:19:45 PM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) refused Sunday to visit the Auschwitz concentration camp, after a Jewish group had invited her to tour that camp and others this summer to educate herself about the facts of the Holocaust.

Last Monday evening, Ocasio-Cortez compared detention facilities for illegal aliens caught crossing the U.S.-Mexico border to “concentration camps,” adding the phrase “never again,” which commonly refers to the Nazi Holocaust.

The remark drew outrage and criticism, even from fellow Democrats. Nevertheless, Ocasio-Cortez doubled down, first claiming that she had not been referring to Nazi Germany, then drawing parallels to the U.S. internment of Japanese-Americans during the Second World War. “I will never apologize for calling these camps what they are,” she tweeted.

Alan Dershowitz, who recently said he would support Joe Biden over President Donald Trump in 2020, said Ocasio-Cortez’s “concentration camp” claim made her a “Holocaust denier.” Bill Maher, host of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, and a determined foe of President Trump, criticized her on his show Friday evening: “If you want to run a campaign based on reparations and concentration camps then it’s going to be very hard to win the election.” Rabbi Shmuley Boteach (who is also a Breitbart News contributor) published a full-page ad in the New York Times:

Numerous Holocaust educational foundations, including Israel’s Yad Vashem, offered to educate Ocasio-Cortez. Senior Yad Vashem historian Robert Rozett wrote in response to Ocasio-Cortez’s use of the term “concentration camp”:

The term “concentration camps” has become a commonly used term for an array of Nazi camps all characterized by profound inhumanity and suffering. Even Auschwitz-Birkenau – the most infamous of the Nazi camps where more than one million people were murdered– was officially termed a Konzentrationslager (Concentration camp) in German.

One of the most powerful moments in that black and white movie is when the camera focuses briefly on a little girl standing among the camp prisoners. She is wearing a RED dress.
That image haunts me to this day!

Simple. When they said Auschwitz, she replied “gesundheit.”

I bet she’s never been to the border to check out those holding centers either.

Good. The last thing I want to see is for her to start to wise up.

Keep going AOC, spew away!

Let her keep talking she may be the best gift ever to the Republican party. She might even turn the deep blue New York Districk red.

Unhinged comments get noticed but also get very annoying.

AOC has been programmed to hate Jews and Israel by her hijabi Muslimah bitch colleague, Ilhan Jihad Omar.

I’d like to see her bound head to foot and thrown into the Auschwitz “showers”, then hear an eerie hiss after the doors are closed. It could be a shaken bottle of Coca Cola, but I’m sure it would freak her out. And maybe make a dent in her colossal ignorance and stupidity.

You got that right. Cannot tell you how many times I have seen a lefty on Facebook scream, cry and have a meltdown over the little things in life.

Wow. Wonder if they had Foosball tables in Germany ? And why do we let them play Foosball if we are going to gas and put them in ovens soon ? She really is Cortez the Killer, of brain cells.

Alexandria, please visit Auschwitz. Maybe you can visit the gas chamber and see if it works...

I wouldn't joke about Auschwitz, but she might see if the chamber works and it wouldn't be any big loss.

All she needs to do is watch a documentary on Netflix entitled “Nazi Concentration Camps.” It has uncensored and extremely graphic footage of the liberation of most of the major concentration (death) camps, plus German-shot film of some of the atrocites they committed.

stay ignorant AOC. That way you can keep spouting bs and lies and pretend you are right or don’t know better, when really it just makes you look like a complete tool of her puppetmaster(s) and fool to be used by them.

I am sad to say a good portion of America has created this AOC. America does not teach the most important events in history anymore as America celebrated June pervert month and antisemitism is a growing trend. The American Jew will still overwhelmingly vote for the party of AOC. Is it not hard to answer the question how people get exterminated?
