Ocasio-Cortez Refuses Invite To Visit Concentration Camps With Holocaust Survivor

On Sunday, socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) declined an invitation from a Holocaust remembrance group to visit Nazi concentration camps with a Holocaust survivor, suggesting that it was part of a “far-right” scheme designed for “political gain.”

Ocasio-Cortez made the remarks in response to a tweet from Rep. Steve King (R-IA), who was kicked off his congressional committees by Republican leaders after remarks he made about white nationalism.

In a tweet tagging Ocasio-Cortez and linking to a report from The Hill, King encouraged Ocasio-Cortez to accept the invite from the Holocaust remembrance group.

King wrote: “.@AOC I went to Auschwitz & Birkenau with Eddie Mausberg & Jonny Daniels with In the Depths. I went with a deep understanding of the Shoah and had a profound personal experience. Please accept their offer.”

Ocasio-Cortez responded by saying she was rejecting the offer as she believed it was part of how “the far-right manipulates these moments for political gain.”

Ocasio-Cortez wrote: “The last time you went on this trip it was reported that you also met w/ fringe Austrian neo-Nazi groups to talk shop. So I’m going to have to decline your invite. But thank you for revealing to all how transparently the far-right manipulates these moments for political gain.”

It’s important to note that King was not inviting her to visit the Nazi concentration camps with him but rather was encouraging her to accept the offer from the Holocaust remembrance group. The article from The Hill that King included in his tweet stated:

A Holocaust commemoration group on Friday invited Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) to tour the Nazi death camp Auschwitz with a 93-year-old survivor.

Jonny Daniels, the founder of From the Depths, wrote the open invitation to the progressive freshman asking her to participate in the educational tour during her summer recess from Congress.

From the Depths president Edward Mosberg, a Holocaust survivor, would travel with her for the tour, which includes visits to the Auschwitz-Birkenau, Mauthausen and Majdanek concentration camps.

“We at From The Depths, have brought over 100 international parliamentarians to visit the German Nazi Concentration and Extermination camps, parliamentarians from across the political spectrum, including over 20 Representatives of the United States Congress, both Republicans and Democrats alike,” Daniels wrote in the invitation to Ocasio-Cortez. “From The Depths is the only foundation dealing with Holocaust memory, memorial and education run entirely by millennials, we feel that this would be great opportunity for you to learn more about this horrendous past, and understand how it impacts lives and education until today.”

“In the invitation, Daniels wrote: “The opportunity you will have of visiting the German Nazi Concentration Camps along with Mr. Mosberg, a 93 year old survivor of history’s most brutal genocidal regime, will enable you to become a witness of a witness, something that our generation will sadly be the last to do, as result of the fact that the survivors are passing away at an ever increasing rate,” Daniels concluded. “We await your response and look forward to learning together with you about this painful history.”

    She knows if she goes she will have to not only admit she’s wrong but would also have to apologize. She is not capable of either because she thinks she’s an expert on everything! What an absolute disgrace she is!

    Obviously AOC feels that she can shoot off Her mouth and when someone calls her on it because she obviously didn’t do any fact checking then she chickens out because she’s going to be confronted with the truth which is something foreign to her. She would be forced to admit her lie and to apologize and be held accountable and that’s clearly something she refuses to do. AOC is not just an embarrassment to herself and the US but she’s a national disgrace. The entire world knows that she’s a liar

    I guess anywhere they concentrate people is a concentration camp to her dumb ass. I guess camping grounds and boy scout camps and such are also concentration camps by her loose idiotic definition.

    Does she not understand that THE JEWS WERE FORCED to go to concentration camps but ILLEGALS CHOOSE to come here? Hitler GASED THEM TO DEATH but we give them FREE FOOD, MEDICAL AND HOUSING in our detaining centers? They should be in jail for breaking into our country illegally yet, we let them go free into our country and get more free stuff. What is wrong with her?! Does she continually say things like this to get her face in the news?

    AOC only believes in the Spotlight on her detestable being. She does NOT believe in Truth, Education, Honesty, Fairness, Morality and Decency, Humbleness nor the USA. She DOES believe in Viciousness, Lies, Hatefulness, and doing whatever it takes to destroy this Great Country and make a name for herself. She does not care what and whom she destroys to achieve her goals. AOC has an enormous Ego, sub-zero Integrity, a Sell-Out, Un-American Agenda, all projected with the weirdest childish confidence not see in normal adults.

    “He who knows best knows how little he knows.” – Thomas Jefferson

    In this case, AOC knows essentially NOTHING. I keep wondering if she even has a functioning brain.
