Apologies in advance for another post on this, but as Twitchy has reported, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has doubled- and tripled-down on her characterization of the detainment facilities at the border as “concentration camps,” but as so many (journalists) have pointed out, she wasn’t necessarily comparing the border crisis to the Holocaust. Who haven’t we called on yet today? Oh, hey, Matthew Dowd, you’re up:
You also might want to remind them that concentration camps predated the nazis. They were used in Cuba in late 1800s and further. They were used by British in the boer war. And United States used them against native Americans.

Normalizing the Holocaust to own the cons. That’s where we are in 2019. https://t.co/nvd6pbugoA

Ah yes, the Boer War — which has been tweeted about more on this single day than in the entire history of Twitter. None of which changes the fact that thousands and thousands of people are arriving at our southern border and claiming asylum … meaning they must be fleeing something worse than they’re getting in those concentration camps: you know, food, shelter, medical attention.
Apparently, though, Rep. Jerry Nadler didn’t get the memo and went ahead and assumed that when she said “Never again,” Ocasio-Cortez was referring to the Holocaust specifically.
One of the lessons from the Holocaust is ‘Never Again’ – not only to mass murder, but also to the dehumanization of people, violations of basic rights, and assaults on our common morality. We fail to learn that lesson when we don’t callout such inhumanity right in front of us. https://t.co/EEBBkVL7FG

Here’s the founder of Americans Against Antisemitism with a brutal body blow:
Hey @RepJerryNadler how cheaply did you sell the memories of 6,000,000 Jews to your fellow Dems for?
Asking for Holocaust survivors and their descendants.

Bbbbbut I thought she wasn't talking about the Holocaust. Would Democrats please make up her mind? https://t.co/WsCni8UDeB

You did not. Disgusting. Nothing compares to the Holocaust, you beast. https://t.co/6tNeITVvEm

In other words, "Never Again" is just another way of saying "I'm right, and you're evil". https://t.co/WR22Gipy3J

Time and time again Democrats exhibit this horrorific behavior and time and time again the Jewish majority keeps voting for them. Beyond my comprehension as to why.

It's really disturbing how many people are buying into this crazy from AOC and her minions.

"Not only to mass murder"
I hope she stays in congress forever Jerry. The pretzel logic is too much fun https://t.co/LzwFHH90C1

Now Nadler has decided to call Border Patrol Nazis. These people are disgraceful. https://t.co/tpJOfQrs3q

The backlog has been worsening over the past decade as the funding for immigration judges has failed to keep pace with an increasing case load.
Are asylum seekers released before their immigration court hearings?

Funny, Democrats aren’t saying. Their plan seems to have been to deny that there was a border crisis until they couldn’t deny it anymore, and then do nothing about it.
Amazing how Nadler went from doing literally nothing about this when Obama and his admin used these practices at the border, but it is now tantamount to Nazi concentration camps when Trump is in office. A simply stunning amount of brazen hypocrisy being exhibited here. For Shame https://t.co/sOsw0PpZwW

Its wrong to use the Holocaust as an example here. We are not asking people to break in to our country, and were not killing them or trying to exterminate their entire race. Why don't you compare the Holocaust to abortion and the 60 million babies YOU killed in this country. https://t.co/RszDuxFaf9

Illegal aliens break US laws when they illegally cross the US border. You took an oath to protect US citizens from illegal aliens, drug cartels, human traffickers, MS-13, terrorists. Do your job, earn that paycheck you take from taxpayers, if not resign. https://t.co/3ibu2we981

We checked Rep. Nadler’s Twitter feed to see if he followed up with his plan to process all of the illegal immigrants flooding the border, but we didn’t see one. If he does post, we’ll be sure to add it here.
Chris Hayes' 'right side of history' tweet is so intellectually dishonest, AOC could've written it herself https://t.co/Zoh2eXBbMT
