Holocaust Survivors Respond To Ocasio-Cortez After ‘Concentration Camp’ Comments

Published

on

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez infuriated many Americans, including some Holocaust survivors when she compared U.S. immigration detention facilities to “concentration camps.”

The conservative group Turning Point USA interviewed two Holocaust survivors, both of whom panned Ocasio-Cortez’s comparisons.

“I was in four concentration camps,” survivor David Tuck said. “We have no concentration camps here. This is just a political comment.”

“How can you looking at my face tell me that the camps we have in the south are concentration camps,” survivor Sami Steigmann asked. “What you are doing, you are insulting every victim of the Holocaust.”

WATCH:

Ocasio-Cortez took heat earlier this week when she evoked images of Nazi Germany to express her discontent with President Donald Trump’s immigration policies, referring to detention centers that house illegal immigrants near the border as “concentration camps.”

The Holocaust research center Yad Vashem criticized Ocasio-Cortez’s comments, urging her to learn about the history of concentration camps.

“Concentration camps assured a slave labor supply to help in the Nazi war effort, even as the brutality of life inside the camps helped assure the ultimate goal of ‘extermination through labor.’ Learn about concentration camps,” they said in a tweet directed at Ocasio-Cortez.

Even as criticism has mounted, Ocasio-Cortez has continued to defend the comparison, saying that detention facilities at the southern border fit within the dictionary definition of concentration camps.

    Come back, little girl,when you grow up.

  • Jc says:

    Sadly she doesn’t possess the IQ to understand the damage she does when she sas such incredibly stupid things. Hopefully she will be a single term loon and we’ll be done with her forever.

    • Sandra McDonald says:

      I was going to say the same but you said if for me. She is just unbelievable saying the stupid crap that comes out of her mouth on ANYTHING….

    • So true. I don’t think she can even begin to comprehend the evil perpetrated on the Jewish people during the second world war. She should be made to do a lengthy study of just exactly what happened there then she will be able to discuss the matter and not before.

  • Susan Dudak says:

    AOC is a total idiot. She knows zilch about what she is talking about. Her time is running out. Even her own followers are starting to dump her. She is just going to be a blip in history and no more.

    • I agree and I don’t know why she even is allowed to say such things and people shouldn’t even listen to her. She has no idea what occurred in the second world war. I think she speaks and does not think about what she is saying.

  • Laurel Jenkins says:

    Many of the illegal invaders have never lived so well or been so well taken care of, even tho’ Pelosi starves the supply chain. Cookies, games, books, protection. When they arrive sick and we cannot save them, it’s our fault? After doing all possible to save a life? The Hispanic Jihad. Too many hate our guts, do not want to be Americans, just want free stuff, want us dead from drugs, “The drug biz is good for OUR people”. “I refuse to learn English. It’s an ugly language that tastes bad in our mouth”. So much evil spoken first hand into my face. I am bilingual. INVADE. OCCUPY. DESTROY. I love legal immigrants who work like me and contribute to society. These leeches only ripping us off every chance they get…not so much.

    • Sherry says:

      God bless you. Thank you for going through the ‘legal’ channels of U.S. citizenship. We love immigrants like you and like my ancestors who did it the legal way, worked hard, learned English and loved America!

  • Rae says:

    The trouble with li’s is that they know so much that just isn’t so. I think it was Ronald Reagan that said that. It fits!

  • she has diarrhea of the mouth and constipation of the brain.How does anyone so stupid get vote it to office wow I mean she is really dumb

  • Cindy says:

    Well, she’s just like the other two newbies, spew hate and division and outright lies to get it done. She has to keep up with them, and try to out-do them, she wants to be top dog. Here’s how it works, when you lay down with dogs, you get up with fleas. And Lord knows our Congress is now rampant with vermin.

  • CharlieSeattle says:

    AO☭ and the Demo☭rats are liars!

  • Your Voice says:

    She has the intelligence of a PISS ANT. She is a disgrace to democracy, was voted in because she is a woman and needs to go back to the 9th grade and retake all the history classes. She is a MILLENNIAL IDIOT. She has to go. She should be impeached for being STUPID!

  • stevor says:

    since “six million” jews died in the holocaust, why were there any survivors at all? How many survivors were there? (which would make the number of jews total how many?)

  • Dragonfly43 says:

    I lost relatives in the camps. They died from starvation. AOC has no clue what she’s talking about and has insulted every Jew on the planet! I just pray she’s gone after her term ends!

  • William Sanders says:

    I am certain she doesn’t possess the IQ to read, much less understand a dictionary

  • Michael says:

    I’ve seen video’s of the illegal immigrant camps down by the southern border on Fox5 , I saw a very nice facility . A nice clean place , lots of food available , laundry rooms , pool tables , ping pong tables , basketball courts , and even hair salons available . The immigrants have it better than most American citizens and I’m pretty sure it’s all free . In no way are these facilities concentration camps . I just watched a video where a mans son was shot in the face and murdered over a pack of cigarettes by a illegal immigrant . It’s time for these illegal immigrants to leave our country. Time after time these liberal democrats lie about anything they talk about . AOC’s time is just about over , no second term for her stupid ass .

  • Ron says:

    THE LORD JESUS CHRIST SEVERELY REBUKE YOU Ocasio-Cortez!!!!!!!
    YOU ANTI-SEMITE!!!!!!
    GOD BLESS THE JEWS!
    GOD BLESS ISRAEL!

      RON
      YOU PUT IT DOWN BEAUTIFULLY. GOD BLESS YUO. I HOPE SHE GOES TO PRISON WHERE A LL HER HATE AND BITNESS WILL NOT HURT DECENT INNONCENT PEOPLE. SHE IS ABOVE EVIL. SHE MUST BE GOTTEN OUT OF C ONGRESS SOMEHOW..

  • Isaac says:

    This specimen of a subhuman person seems to go out of her way to look for situations she knows nothing about just to have her ugly face in the news. Forget that most of the times she doesn’t even know what she’s talking about and makes it up by inventing things as she goes along. I think that Cortez lies so much she actually believes what she says. I hope People come to their senses and actually see Cortes for what she really is!

  • Michigan Man says:

    AOC and those like her don’t care about anyone if they aren’t ‘people of color’. Racist individual for sure.

  • Lee Price says:

    I want to know what dictionary she used, because this is the definition I got.

    a place where large numbers of people, especially political prisoners or members of persecuted minorities, are deliberately imprisoned in a relatively small area with inadequate facilities, sometimes to provide forced labor or to await mass execution. The term is most strongly associated with the several hundred camps established by the Nazis in Germany and occupied Europe in 1933–45, among the most infamous being Dachau, Belsen, and Auschwitz.
