As Twitchy reported (a few times today now, heh), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez must have eaten a few more paint chips than usual because she said something immensely stupid about Trump running concentration camps at the border.
Then she doubled down.
Then she got defensive.
Then Liz Cheney took her apart …
Please @AOC do us all a favor and spend just a few minutes learning some actual history. 6 million Jews were exterminated in the Holocaust. You demean their memory and disgrace yourself with comments like this. https://t.co/NX5KPPb2Hl

And now Jimmy Kimmel writer, Bess Kalb, is doing her part to try and make AOC look less stupid.
Jew here. @AOC’s point is exactly why we say “Never forget.” The Holocaust did not begin with the murder of 6 million Jews. It began with the same dehumanization, deportation, and internment we see today. You, sickeningly, invoke the Holocaust to minimize their suffering. Shame.

Ok, so we get that Bess is trying to put this back on Liz but … huh?
The only person who invoked the Holocaust was AOC and Liz explained why that was stupid.
Anyone else feel like they’re taking crazy pills at this point?
Holding illegal aliens who break the law until their hearing now = imprisoning citizens with the intention of enslaving/exterminating them.
And people on the left don't understand why nobody but the farthest of their fellow loons pays attention to them.https://t.co/1QORJAU5l8

It’s like they want to lose the election next year.
Jew here and BS. Germany was not facing a mass invasion. The people attacked by the Nazi regime were long time residents, often with centuries of history in their towns and cities.
It's really simple. You can have a welfare state or you can have open borders but not both.

The Holocaust, terrible as it was, was the result of evil people rounding up a race of people for the purpose of genocide by force. These people are willingly, through no easy means, flocking TO the US by CHOICE.

Yeah, that’s sort of an important piece that Bess and AOC left out.
Hey man, virtue signaling of this magnitude is tough.
Hi, Jew here. Every single Republican and Democrat who compares the slaughter of 6 million Jew to *insert political controversy* should be ashamed of themselves.
The Shoah isn’t a political tool, it’s a horrific tragedy and nothing currently happening in America can compare.

All day this.
AOC’s fan club can spin, spin, and then spin some more but the reality of the situation is there is NEVER anything that anyone should compare to the Holocaust.
Don’t do it.
It never ends well.
