Chris Cuomo Had the Proper Reaction to Amy Klobuchar Saying Democrat Rallies are As Large as Trump’s

Trump’s packed rallies are hard to ignore. The polls telling us that Trump is being crushed under the heal of the Democrat of the day can be thrown around till the cows come home, but it’s hard to square numbers someone gives you with numbers you can physically see.

As I covered on Wednesday, the attendance at Trump’s rallies is eclipsing the numbers seen at Democrat gatherings, even frontrunner Joe Biden’s. This fact is worrying for Democrats, and so far, only CNN’s Chris Cuomo is addressing the Republican elephant in the room.

In an interview with Amy Klobuchar on Wednesday, Cuomo asked the Democrat 2020 candidate up front why Democrats aren’t attracting the kinds of crowds Trump is. Klobuchar responded by flat out saying that Democrats are packing stadiums like Trump, it’s just that you don’t see it because there are so many Democrats.

“Why don’t Democrat pack stadiums the way this president does?” asked Cuomo.

“Oh but we do!” responded Klobuchar. “We just have a lot of stadiums we’re packing at the same time.”

Cuomo didn’t verbally respond, but the incredulous expression on his face spoke for him louder than words ever could.

Cuomo later admitted that he doesn’t agree with Klobuchar at all and that “size does matter.”

He’s not wrong. In 2016 we saw the same exact thing happen with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Clinton continuously beat him in the polls, yet Trump packed stadiums while Clinton had to find various ways to play with crowd optics.

The difference is enthusiasm and groundswell. It’s one thing to have a mob online that will sit behind a keyboard and throw their support behind a candidate, and it’s another to get up to go stand in line with thousands of other people for hours on end to see a guy speak for a bit. People are doing that for Trump, but no one is doing that for Democrats.

This might change as the Democrat’s field of candidates is whittled down, but even with a single candidate opposing Trump, it’s hard to see how the enthusiasm for the left’s candidate will match that of Trump’s. As Rush Limbaugh pointed out, it’s not just crowd size, it’s the fact that Trump is also garnering more donations than any other Democrat candidate.

Klobuchar and Democrats pretending that they’re doing just as well isn’t going to change the fact that they’re not. It’s just one more fantasy they chose to add to their ever-expanding fantasy world.

Even if Klobuchar isn’t telling lies for her sake but for yours, then this is proof that Democrats think you’re stupid enough to believe them. Given, the rabid defense of everything Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says has given them a proper reason to think that, but regardless, heads buried in the sand don’t win elections.

When even Cuomo recognizes this, maybe it’s time to get real.

Tom Cotton Provides a Necessary “History Lesson” After MSNBC Mislabels Segregationist Democratic Senators “Republicans”

As Red State‘s Bonchie wrote yesterday, Joe Biden landed himself in hot water with fellow Democrats on Wednesday. The 2020 presidential contender spoke earlier this week on being able to work with segregationist Senators in the interest of “civility” long ago to get things done.

What Biden didn’t mention is the fact that the Senators in question were segregationists – and Democrats.

A brief recap, via CNN:

During a fundraising event in New York, the Democratic presidential candidate recounted being a member of the Senate in the 1970s with southern Democrats who opposed civil rights and desegregation. He specifically named Mississippi Sen. James Eastland and Georgia Sen. Herman Talmadge, who Biden called “one of the meanest guys I ever knew.”

“I was in a caucus with James O. Eastland. He never called me ‘boy,’ he always called me ‘son,’ ” Biden told donors.

“Well guess what? At least there was some civility. We got things done,” Biden said. “We didn’t agree on much of anything. We got things done. We got it finished.”

“But today, you look at the other side and you’re the enemy. Not the opposition, the enemy. We don’t talk to each other anymore,” he said.

The two Senators he mentioned were not exactly politicians you wanted to be bragging about getting along with, as Bonchie noted in his post. In response to Biden’s comments, a number of other presidential candidates, including Sens. Cory Booker (NJ), Kamala Harris (CA), and Elizabeth Warren (MA) blasted the Democratic front-runner.

During an MSNBC segment on the controversy, anchor Kasie Hunt mislabeled the two Senators as Republicans:

MSNBC Host Kasie Hunt called segregationist Democrats “Republicans” on Wednesday when referencing Joe Biden’s remarks about civility with segregationists in the Senate.

“Still to come, Joe Biden references his relationships with two former Republican colleagues at an event in New York City. The only problem? They were both segregationists,” Hunt said, referring to Herman Talmadge and James Eastland, who were both Democratic senators.

[…]

Hunt did not correct her comments when she returned from the break.

Watch the segment below:

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) got wind of the news of Hunt’s flub, and took to the Twitter machine to provide a quick but necessary history lesson:

Hunt later issued a correction, but it was long after the segment was over:

Sure. Like 24 hours after the damage has been done. But okay.

MSNBC’s Chuck Todd Breaks With Media and Goes After AOC for “Concentration Camp” Comments, She Doesn’t Take It Well

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @ SXSW 2019 by nrkbeta, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

MSNBC’s “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd didn’t get the memo that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is to be treated as infallible at all times, and instead went after the New York democratic socialist with gusto on his program on Wednesday.

After AOC’s comparison to the holding areas at the border to concentration camps, many across the globe came down on her for her gross attempt to draw an equivalence. Todd made it clear that Ocasio-Cortez was doing a “disservice” to those who suffered in the Nazi concentration camps, and dismissed the lie that AOC wasn’t trying to compare them to Nazi death camps.

“She just did the people there a tremendous disservice,” Todd said. “Be careful comparing them to Nazi concentration camps because they’re not at all comparable in the slightest.”

“She tried to make a distinction between concentration camps and Nazi death camps,” Todd continued. “But Congresswoman, tens of thousands were also brutalized, starved, and ultimately died in those concentration camps.”

Todd also noted that people were afraid to call her out for her remarks for fear of being mobbed by Ocasio-Cortez’s rabid fan base, and the MSNBC host wondered allowed why people were so afraid of that.

“Some Democrats have been reluctant to condemn her remarks, they don’t want to get criticized on Twitter,” Todd added. “Why are we so sheepish calling out people we agree with politically these days?”

True to form, Ocasio-Cortez didn’t appreciate one of the leftists in the media breaking ranks and took to Twitter to punish Todd for daring to disagree with her.

“Well, [Chuck Todd] – the fact that you slipped in “Nazi” when I never said that is pretty unfortunate. Almost as unfortunate as the fact that you spent this whole time w/o discussing DHS freezers, “dog pounds,” missing children, & human rights abuses that uphold use of this term,” tweeted AOC.

Thing is, AOC did compare them to Nazi concentration camps by using the phrase “never again,” completely linking the Nazi death camps to what she claims is concentration camps happening at the border. The walk back came the moment the heat became overwhelming and was assisted by a media only too happy to run defense for someone they’re openly afraid of.

Todd did exactly the right thing by calling out a dumb comment for what it was. If anything, people on the left, especially in the media, should be following his example and putting their foot down on where we draw lines as far as professional political discourse.

While the trained seals that follow AOC blindly will nod and applaud if she spoke like Beaker from the Muppets, the rest of the world isn’t too impressed with the bombastic schtick she has going. In fact, it’s turning a lot of voters off if the voting public lining up to see Trump is any indication.

The Democrats go down a really dark road with following this kind of radical sensationalism, and they’re better off listening to Todd than AOC, if they have to listen to a leftist at all.

Don’t say you weren’t warned: Biden promises to kill GOP tax cuts

Westlake Legal Group BidenShotgunGestureB715 Don’t say you weren’t warned: Biden promises to kill GOP tax cuts U.S. Politics The Blog tax hikes tax cuts politicians Joe Biden Economy donald trump democrats 2020 presidential campaign 2020 Democrat primaries 2020 Democrat debates 2020 Democrat candidates 2020 campaign

One sure sign the Democratic primary race is getting more heated: Those 23 wannabe presidents are promising to take more of American workers’ income in taxes to pay for some of the free stuff they’re offering simultaneously. Such a deal!

We’re sure to hear more about their vast spending hopes next week during the first pair of Democratic debates. They’ll play down the tax angle, except to claim falsely Trump’s tax cuts were really tax hikes. Fact Checker to Aisle 3 please!

Bernie Sanders, a socialist who owns three homes, isn’t a Democrat. But he plays one every four years before large crowds of young people who know some history as far back as the 1990s. Sanders opined the other day on CNN that many Americans “would be delighted” to pay more taxes. Uh-huh.

“I suspect,” he said there, without fear of contradiction, “that a lot of people in this country would be delighted to pay more in taxes if they had comprehensive healthcare as a human right.”

Also this week, Joe Biden, who was for the Hyde Amendment banning federal abortion financing before he was against it, promised that the very first thing he would do as president is kill President Trump’s tax cuts.

“First thing I would do as president,” Joe told the Poor People’s Forum in Washington, “is eliminate the president’s tax cut.” That, of course, means a tax hike for most Americans.

Americans for Tax Reform did some calculations and reports that deleting the tax cuts would cost a single parent $1,300 more in taxes each year, a family of four earning $73,000 would have to fork over $2,000 more in taxes, the child tax credit and standard tax deductions would be cut in half, utility bills would increase in all 50 states and millions would get to pay the Obamacare individual mandate tax again.

Oh, and small business employers would lose their 20 percent small business deduction and the U.S. would once again have the highest corporate tax in the developed world. Think all of that might affect jobs again?

The good news for Americans is most Democrat primary promises never materialize. Remember Barack Obama’s vow to close the Guantanamo Detention Center on his first day? He did sign a paper ordering that for a photo op. But — oh, look! — Gitmo is still there and still a terrorist prison.

The bad news for Joe is he is still leading the pack of Democrats in polls. That’s bad because, as I wrote here:

It’s not good to be even a little ahead at this early stage. Around this time four years ago, Jeb Bush and Mike Huckabee led GOP polls. Before that, remember Presidents Dick Gephardt, Howard Dean, Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum? All were out front at this or similar stages in their primary races. And all flamed out.

Rush Limbaugh Has a Nasty Reality Check for Joe Biden

Westlake Legal Group Rush-Limbaugh-Ditto-Cam-620x325 Rush Limbaugh Has a Nasty Reality Check for Joe Biden republicans rallies polls Politics Joe Biden Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump democrats Campaigns Allow Media Exception 2020 Elections 2020

The size of the crowds President Donald Trump draws in can’t be ignored. The guy packs stadiums that result in overflow crowds that number in the thousands.

Rush Limbaugh couldn’t help but notice this as well as he watched the events unfold for Donald Trump’s campaign stop in Orlando, Florida. Thousands had come to see the President speak, and waited for hours beforehand to do so, making it look like the launch of a new iPhone back in Apple’s heyday.

According to the Daily Wire’s James Barrett, Limbaugh senses bad weather on the horizon for Democrat primary shoo-in Joe Biden, the man Democrats have likely decided to take on Trump:

“Imagine if you’re Joe Biden last night,” said Rush (transcript via RushLimbaugh.com). “You’re Joe Biden last night, and your advisers come in, and they say, ‘Joe, don’t sweat it, don’t sweat anything that happened last night. What happened last night doesn’t mean anything, Joe. The debates are the only thing that matter, Joe, and you’re gonna wipe the floor with this guy, Joe. You’re gonna wipe the floor about him in the debates, and you got the big money behind you, Joe. You got fundraisers, you’re setting records all over. Joe, don’t sweat this stuff last night.’”

But then came a tweet from Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel early Wednesday morning: “Donald Trump has raised a record-breaking $24.8 million in less than 24 hours for his reelection,” she announced. “The enthusiasm across the country for this president is unmatched, unlike anything we have ever seen.”

That’s no small amount of cash. Not to mention the fact that it puts to shame other fundraising efforts by Democrats. Bernie Sanders raised $18 million by comparison.

Poll after poll indicates that Biden does have the edge over Trump, but as I discussed on Wednesday, we’ve seen this before in 2016. Hillary Clinton was set to slam Trump in almost every poll, but his packed rallies were telling a different story.

The Daily Wire also notes that other polls are giving us a different view of the landscape, which Limbaugh cites:

The Firehouse-Optimus poll, conducted from June 11-13, shows Trump with a tremendous surge in Pennsylvania; Biden had an eight-point lead in March that has narrowed to a scant one-point lead. The Trump “base” in Pennsylvania has a huge lead over the Democratic “base.” Trump’s stands at 42%, dwarfing the Democrats’, which is at 24%. … Since March, Biden’s lead over Trump in Wisconsin has shrunk from 12 percentage points to six. The Trump “base” in Wisconsin, according to the poll, rests at 37%; the Democratic “base” stands at 32%. Trump’s approval rating has risen from 41% to 44% since March. In Michigan, where the Trump “base” is 39% and the Democratic base rests at 32%, Trump and Biden were tied in March; Biden now holds a slim three-point lead, leaving them in a statistical dead heat.

At this point, many of the polls touting the strength of Biden’s voting public coming into 2020 is, in a word, unreliable.

Even Chris Cuomo couldn’t help but note that Democrats aren’t packing stadiums like Trump is, and went so far as to ask Democratic presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar why that is. Klobuchar tried to say that Democrats were packing stadiums like Trump, however, this is a bold lie.

Limbaugh is correct in his assessment. All the roads point to failure for Biden at this juncture, and many had that forecast going in.

Top economists predicted Trump’s victory in 2020 back in March due to the fact that when an economy is strong, it’s hard to dislodge a sitting president from office.

“The economy is just so damn strong right now and by all historic precedent the incumbent should run away with it,” said Donald Luskin, chief investment officer of TrendMacrolytics.

“Even if you have a mediocre but not great economy — and that’s more or less consensus for between now and the election — that has a Trump victory and by a not-trivial margin,” said Yale economist Ray Fair.

“If the election were held today, Trump would win according to the models and pretty handily,” said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics and regular Trump critic. “In three or four of them it would be pretty close. He’s got low gas prices, low unemployment and a lot of other political variables at his back. The only exception is his popularity, which matters a lot. If that falls off a cliff it would make a big difference.”

Biden actually winning would take nothing short of a miracle at this point. While it’s not smart to discount the GOP’s talent for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, Trump’s popularity mixed with his dominance of the economy is essentially his golden ticket to four more years.

Bernie Sanders Takes the Gloves Off, Accuses Democrat Party of Sabotaging Him

Everything old is new again and Bernie Sanders finds himself right back where he was in 2016. That being a guy with a rabid base but obviously not someone the Democrat party would ever actually allow to be nominee.

Sanders seems to have caught on to that fact and he’s now speaking out.

Sanders is feeling the heat from Elizabeth Warren, who polls show is siphoning off his support. The idea is that “moderates” see Warren as a more acceptable candidate, despite being just as rabidly socialist as Sanders. The policies are the same but Warren gives off less of a “crazy old Soviet” vibe. The liberal press have also done their part lately to really prop up Warren and present her as a serious person with “ideas.” No matter that those ideas are mostly garbage.

After Sanders was kneecapped in 2016, he played along anyway and endorsed Clinton. This was obviously done with an expectation on his part that the DNC would give him a fair shake the next time. That’s not going to happen. You can already see the media narrative building on the left that Sanders isn’t an option and you can guarantee the party is helping push that message.

Unfortunately for Sanders, he finds himself in a much weaker position this time around. Right now, even absent any possible collusion against him, he’s still getting blown out by Joe Biden. Now, he’s feeling the heat and he’s lashing out. The next step is to take the gloves off and start attacking the party directly. That’s what’s happening in this tweet and it’s a preview of what we are going to see next week at the debates.

The Democrats have a problem on their hands. Bernie’s supporters are radicals and they aren’t going to take feeling slighted lying down. One of the factors that led to Trump winning in 2016 was a sizable amount of Bernie voters either voting for Trump or sitting home. That could very well happen again.

Watch: At Reparations Hearing, Former NFL Star Burgess Owens Says It’s Democrats Who Owe the Black Community

Former NFL star Burgess Owens speaks at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on reparations – 6/19/19. Screen grab via CSPAN.

As expected, there was much drama and fireworks at today’s House Judiciary Committee hearing on reparations, as Democratic presidential hopefuls like Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and liberal celebrities like Danny Glover made their cases in favor.

But one speech stood out from the crowd, and it’s the one that NFL legend and former Democrat Burgess Owens made against reparations.

Owens, an author and also a Fox News contributor, started out by saying that this was “not about black and white, rich or poor, blue collar, white collar.” In remarks that were sharply different than most others on the panel, he told the committee that we were “fighting for the heart and soul of our nation.” He also lamented the fact that this generation of kids were being told that they didn’t have the same opportunities as the older people in the room once had.

After speaking about the poisons of socialism and Marxism on our society and how some of those teachings were now being taught in our schools, he spoke of the history of some of his ancestors who were slaves. Owens noted that once they were free the took advantage of the opportunities presented to them and were very successful. He said the same was true of many other freed slaves.

He also talked about the effects he says Democratic policies have had on the black community over time:

“I do believe in restitution,” he continued. “Let’s point to the party that was part of slavery, KKK, Jim Crow, that has killed over 40% of our black babies, 20 million of them.”

“State of California, 75 percent of our black boys can’t pass a standard reading and writing test. A Democratic state. So yes, let’s pay restitution. How about a Democratic Party pay for all the misery brought to my race and those — after we learn our history — who decide to stay there, they should pay also.

They are complicit. And every white American, Republican or Democrat, that feels guilty because of your white skin, you should need to pony up also. That way we can get past this reparation and recognize that this country has given us greatness.

Look at this panel. Doesn’t matter how we think. Doesn’t matter our color. We have become successful in this country like no other because of this great opportunity to live the American dream. Let’s not steal that from our kids by telling them they can’t do it.

Watch the full speech Owens gave to the committee below:

Powerful.

Jerry Nadler White Knights AOC and Goes Along With Equating Detaining Illegal Aliens to Nazi Concentration Camps

I’ve been doing political blogging for over fifteen years and I’d deceived myself into believing that I was sufficiently jaded and cynical that I couldn’t be shocked by anything the Democrat party would do. This week has proven me wrong.

Earlier in the week, America’s Rain Man, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, equated detention camps for illegal aliens to Nazi death camps. Just in case you couldn’t follow here convoluted reasoning, she went to Instagram with a video that included this bit of nonsense:

Sorry, wrong video, this one:

The U.S. is running concentration camps on our southern border, and that is exactly what they are. I want to talk to the people that are concerned enough with humanity to say that ‘never again’ means something.

I’ve read stuff by people who I know know better going along with the concentration camp bullsh** because, I can only assume based on the most charitable construction, that they simply hate Trump more than they like either the truth or border security. Detention camps are not internment camps. Neither are concentration camps. None of these are extermination camps or forced labor camps like those in Germany and German-occupied Europe between 1933 and 1945. Each of those facilities has a very specific meaning. Characterizing them as extermination camps is simply the kind of stupidity and mendacity we’ve come to associate with AOC and her defenders.

While most Democrats ran like scalded dogs from the accusation that DHS was running proto-death camps in the America, Fat Jerry Nadler, the pustulent goblin who runs the House Judiciary Committee agreed with her:

Let’s be clear here. The people in the detention centers made a voluntary decision to illegally cross into the United States for a variety of purposes. To a great extent, they were lured here by the policies put in place by a Democrat president who rewarded illegals bringing children into this country with a quasi-permanent status for the children and a great deal of protection from deportation for the parents. The options available to the US government aren’t great but they are binary. Either we stop enforcing immigration laws or we have to detain the lawbreakers. The people there are not dehumanized. They are not deprived of rights. If your morality is offended by an administration taking its duty and responsibility to citizens and resident aliens seriously, you can just f*** right off and go play in the street or something. The people in detention can literally leave at any time they wish…and get a free ride home with probably at least a bag lunch to tide them over.

If you actually thought there was any moral equivalence or physical resemblance between our facilities that are used to detain, screen, and process illegal immigrants and concentration camps of the Boer War or death camps, you’d have more of an obligation than merely “callout” the situation. Either Fat Jerry is a moral imbecile who can’t bring himself to take any real risk to prevent what he thinks is a great wrong or he’s just a lard-filled hack trying to get the attention of a woman forty years his junior by defending her indefensible stupidity. Either way, it is a pathetic spectacle.

One Democrat Staffer Sentenced to Prison and Another Pleads Guilty to Doxxing GOP Senators

Westlake Legal Group identity-theft-2708855_1280-620x412 One Democrat Staffer Sentenced to Prison and Another Pleads Guilty to Doxxing GOP Senators supreme court confirmation samantha deforest-davis Rand Paul Politics Orrin Hatch Mitch McConnell Mike Lee Maggie Hassan Lindsey Graham jackson cosko Front Page Stories democrats Congress Brett Kavanaugh Allow Media Exception

Image by CeruleanSon from Pixabay

Back during the shameful spectacle of the Kavanaugh hearing when a man of unblemished character was subject to public vilification by a deranged political activist abetted by the national media, the home address and personal telephone numbers of GOP senators Mitch McConnell, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Lindsey Graham, and Orrin Hatch were posted to their Wikipedia pages. The vandal threatened more disclosures and even left a taunt on Paul’s Wikipedia page: “Send us bitcoins.”

The culprit was quickly arrested. It was a 27-year-old former staffer in the office of Democrat Maggie Hassan named Jackson Cosko.

Cosko had been fired from Hassan’s office but was able to get a former colleague (or perhaps more than colleague) to give him the keys to the office. He entered off hours an at night and downloaded an undisclosed amount of sensitive information, described as being “terabytes of data,” and took it home with him. He also installed keyloggers on computers in the offices he visited to record login information. All of this escaped the notice of the people who are charged with information security on Capitol Hill.

Today the bill came due:

U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Hogan said the sentence for Jackson Cosko, 27, was needed to send a signal that criminal harassment driven by political motives would be punished severely in an era marked by extreme political polarization.

“We have…a society that has become very vicious,” Hogan said. “It’s very concerning to the court and unfortunate that you played into that.”

In April, Cosko pleaded guilty to five felonies, admitting that after being fired last year from his work as a systems administrator on Hassan’s staff, he repeatedly used a colleague’s key to enter the office, install keylogging equipment that stole work and personal email passwords, and downloaded a massive trove of data from Senate systems.

Prosecutors had asked for 57 months, the defense requested 24 months.

At the same time, the woman who loaned Cosko her office keys so he could steal the “terabytes of data,” former Democrat staffer, Samantha Deforest-Davis, got a real sweetheart deal and was allowed to plead guilty to a pair of misdemeanors.

Deforest-Davis worked as a staff assistant in Hassan’s office from April 2017 until last December, when she was fired over her involvement in Cosko’s scheme, a Senate aide said.

Prosecutors say that after Cosko was fired from Hassan’s office last year, he used Davis’s keys to repeatedly return to the office, copy dozens of gigabytes of sensitive data, and install sophisticated keyloggers that captured the work and personal computer passwords of Hassan staffers as they logged in.

Prosecutors say Davis didn’t give Cosko permission to use her keys the first time he surreptitiously entered Hassan’s office, but Davis later agreed to loan Cosko her office key and agreed to “wipe down” computers in the office to erase traces of Cosko’s fingerprints. Davis and Cosko had a “close relationship” and she also owed borrowed money from Cosko to pay her rent, court papers say.

The four years that Cosko received is nowhere near sufficiently severe to send a message of any type to anyone. On the whole, when one compares it to similar convictions…and the case of the guy who hacked hospital files to try to help a young woman being held in a neo-Soviet psychiatric unit in Massachusetts, Marty Gottesfeld, comes to mind…one can see the inherent benefit of having rich parents who are major political donors and working as a Democrat staffer in what is a Democrat town. Cosko got four years for an act of what can only be called domestic terrorism. Gottesfeld got 10 for exposing abuse and corruption. Deforest-Davis will get some community service bullsh** and probably become an MSNBC contributor.

“Not One Dime”: In Fight Over Border Crisis, AOC Inadvertently Admits She’s a Big Part of the Problem

We are now into Day 3 of the Great Debate that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY-14) started Monday night during an Instagram Live video in which she absurdly declared, without evidence, that the U.S. was “running concentration camps” on the southern border.

A quick recap:

The freshman lawmaker also said President Trump is a fascist, underscoring her argument that what is happening in the United States has parallels to Nazi Germany and other fascist states.

“The U.S. is running concentration camps on our southern border, and that is exactly what they are,” the freshman lawmaker said. “If that doesn’t bother you … I want to talk to the people that are concerned enough with humanity to say that ‘never again’ means something.

“The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the ‘Home of the Free’ is extraordinarily disturbing, and we need to do something about it,” she added.

Ocasio-Cortez has been blasted by a number of high-profile Republicans and even some Holocaust experts for her false concentration camp comparison, but she’s continued to double, triple, and quadruple down on her absurd claims.

Because she is never, ever wrong, you know.

She continued again today on her Twitter feed, and in what was probably her 2,057th tweet on the matter (only a slight exaggeration), here’s what she said:

In her next tweet, however, she inadvertently revealed that when it comes to the humanitarian crisis at the border, she is a big part of the problem. Why? Because she and other House Democrats who want to play politics with border security in a critical election year won’t budge when it comes to President Trump’s funding request:

It’s worth noting that the mainstream media hasn’t called her out on her refusal to move on funding, nor have they called out the other members of her party who agree with her that not a dime should go to funding that would help alleviate the humanitarian crisis until her/their demands are met.

Imagine if the shoe was on the other foot, and Republicans refused to authorize funding to help ease a humanitarian crisis involving children. They’d be called cruel, child killers, and every other vile name in the book – not only by a mainstream media who continuously gives AOC a pass on these very issues but by AOC herself.

A Twitter follower pegged the situation perfectly:

Yep.

It’s so frustrating to see the leftists who tell us our “words matter” and level “incitement” charges when we call out Rep. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitism (for example) then turn around and say that their words don’t matter when describing detention centers at the border as concentration camps.

It’s even more frustrating when the mainstream media refuses to hold them to the same standards on their words and actions (or lack thereof in this case) they would Republicans in similar situations.

In any event, as I noted previously, Sen. Mitch McConnell plans on calling the Democratic party’s bluff in the coming days on the $4.5 billion request, which should be interesting to watch.
