It’s a day that ends in “Y,” which means AOC said something else unbelievable stupid. This time, accusing the US Government and specifically the Trump administration of running concentration camps on our southern border.
In another Instagram video, the Congresswoman from the State of Twitter declared unity with those “who are concerned enough with humanity to say ‘never again’ means something.”
Naturally when faced with the inevitable blowback from those who are getting sick and damn tired of the endless comparisons to the Nazis, AOC kept digging.
“I mean, jeeze, you guys. I didn’t mean THOSE concentration camps! And, like those weren’t concentration camps anyway. They were totally, like, death camps. Everybody like knows that, you know, concentration camps doesn’t mean, like the Nazis and stuff!”
If you weren’t talking about the Holocaust then why did you mention “never again”?— Arthur Schwartz (@ArthurSchwartz) June 18, 2019
Keep talking. You’re one of the GOP’s most valuable assets. You and your gang of shrieking Farrakhan sycophants. https://t.co/znL73g762R
This “Ackshually”ing about concentration camps is so dishonest since the literal only reason to use that term is to evoke Nazism and we all know it. So just stop.— neontaster (@neontaster) June 18, 2019
1) They are not being detained without trial. They are awaiting adjudication. Most of the delays are due to a lack of resources approved by Congress.— (((AG))) (@AG_Conservative) June 18, 2019
2) I would call them temporary detention facilities.
3) Lastly, that doesn’t explain you invoking Holocaust references. https://t.co/FhGK4BuvMm
You know at some point, you really just have to stop digging and take the “L.”
But AOC can’t stop digging – any more than she can stop jamming her foot so far into her mouth she can tickle her kidneys with her toes.
Not thinking before you speak is her primary form of communication.
She invoked “Never Again” for crap’s sake. Everybody who isn’t trying to run interference for her knows what she was talking about.
But what really astonishes me over her stupid concentration camp comparison is how willing some people are to make excuses for her.
Not going any deeper into Concentration Camp Twitter today, but the term originated to describe British tactics in the Boer War, and was later applied to Nazi tactics.— Dave Weigel (@daveweigel) June 18, 2019
Problem with saying “internment camp” instead is that you remind people that Americans had them before.
Oh, yes. Of course. AOC – who probably has no idea what the Boer War was – was referring to that.
I mean, it isn’t like she’s an ignoramus who thinks the Boer War was a battle against a wild pig uprising or anything.
And we all know that “Never Again” came from the Boer … wait. No.
Those who never learn history are doomed to make idiots of themselves. And there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Ocasio-Cortez is an historical illiterate.
Just like she’s an economic illiterate and a garbage disposal illiterate.
As David Harsanyi put it over at the Federalist a short time ago in his column “The Problem with Ocasio-Cortez’s Shameful Ignorance of History:”
We’re forced to take someone seriously who believesvegetables are a tool of colonial oppression because Ocasio-Cortez is both a charismatic elected official with many impressionable fans, and a person bestowed a huge media platform. Only last weekend, she appearedon “Meet the Press” praising socialism—the other scourge of the 20th century. Yet, when we need our media to ask her to explain her profoundly childish and destructive statements, they are nowhere to be found.
His entire column is worth reading. However, I do have one quibble with it. The media can be found. Only they’re not calling her out for her ignorant and demagogic hyperbole. They’re actually defending it.
And I’m not just talking about Dave Wiegel from the garbage rag known as the Washington Post.
Random nobody makes an AIDS joke and he’s on it. Member of congress makes BS comparisons to the holocaust and you get this. https://t.co/tn9JHjyCei— BT (@back_ttys) June 18, 2019
Journalists actually defending this moron is the least surprising development of the day. https://t.co/APPvOPPllG— BT (@back_ttys) June 18, 2019
Trump tells Mike Mulvaney to leave the Oval office because he coughs, and these brave firefighters go ape shit and act like it’s the biggest scandal since two-scoops-gate. But AOC steps in it over her concentration camp reference and these morons trip all over themselves to make excuses for her.
So don’t expect Alexandria to walk back her stupid concentration camp remark. Why should she when the crap news media is more than happy to run interference for her?
Though, knowing her, a week from now she’ll claim that it was all a joke and “the GOP” are stupider than a sea sponge for taking her concentration camp comparison seriously.
