Alyssa Milano compares Pence to Himmler visiting concentration camp

Westlake Legal Group AlyssaMilano Alyssa Milano compares Pence to Himmler visiting concentration camp Vice-President Mike Pence The Blog Texas Nazis heinrich himmler detention centers concentration camps Alyssa Milano

Vice-President Mike Pence went to Texas Friday to check on the situation at the southern border for himself and the inevitable happened. It’s 2019 and that means it is completely predictable that Pence was compared to a Nazi visiting a concentration camp. Not just any old Nazi, mind you, but the architect of the Holocaust, Heinrich Himmler.

Alyssa Milano posted a tweet of a photo from Pence’s visit to a detention center in Donna, Texas alongside of a photo of Himmler at a German concentration camp. It’s all about shocking her followers, regardless of the historical factual basis. There is no historical basis for her comparison.

Milano’s ignorance is breath-taking, to be sure. Even worse, she probably really isn’t as ignorant as she presents herself but she makes these outrageous claims for show. It’s all about attention on social media. She fancies herself a political activist in Trump’s America and actual facts don’t always matter. Maybe her school tutor on the set of Who’s The Boss failed to educate the child actress about the Holocaust. Milano knows exactly what she is doing at the expense of actual victims of the Holocaust and their families.

Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence traveled with seven Republican senators and some members of the Trump administration. Democrats were invited on the codel organized by Sen. Lindsay Graham but they declined to go. Pence specifically asked that his visit be a true depiction of the situation.

Pence’s office claimed he was not given a sugar-coated version of the facilities.

“The VP’s office specifically instructed CBP to not clean up or sanitize the facility beyond what is routine so the American people could see how serious the crisis at our border is (overcrowding, lack of resources, beds).”

Pence said at a press conference later Friday, “I knew we’d see a system that was overwhelmed,” and added, “this is tough stuff.” He also called on Democrats to fund more beds at the facilities.

They toured a facility holding single men in McAllen and one in Donna that houses families with children.

At the Donna facility, the one for families with children, 800 people were detained. The facility has the capacity to house 1,000 people. It is set up for them to spend up to 72 hours there though most are in and out in 48 hours. Pence spoke to children being held there.

Reporters were guided through one room in the facility where they saw small children and their parents lying on the floor. Children told Pence they traveled by foot from Central American countries over a two or three-month-long journey. Some small children, all under the age of 8, were on a bench in front of a television watching a Spanish cartoon and eating snacks. An agent watched the room from a guard tower-like structure above.

Pence tweeted his own photos showing him with a group of children sitting at a white table with snacks. Behind him and second lady Karen Pence is a young child sitting on a metal bleacher as well as mats covered in Mylar blankets.

Milano’s absurd tweet uses a photo from Pence’s visit to the McAllen center, the men’s facility. To state the obvious, which apparently people like Alyssa Milano need to hear, these men were detained for crossing the southern border illegally. They are detained due to their own actions. In Nazi Germany, Jews were rounded up and put into concentration camps because of their religion, not because of their own actions. Nazis killed 6 million Jews. The United States is not killing illegal aliens. The overcrowding and poor conditions in some detention centers is not solely the fault of the Trump administration. The border is being overrun and resources are overwhelmed. It is unprecedented. President Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, the vice-president, and his wife, and others in the Trump administration have all visited the border. They have called for additional resources to relieve the chaos and humanitarian crisis. Democrats have ignored the problems and called it a manufactured crisis until only a matter of days ago.

Pence objected to CNN’s coverage of the trip. He said that CNN only showed footage from the men’s facility in McAllen and not the one holding families and children in Donna. He posted a thread on Twitter about it.

The Democrats have no solution in sight – only that we should decriminalize illegally crossing the border. They call for abolishing ICE and dehumanize the men and women working at the border. When asked about the proposal of a new Marshall Plan for Central American countries, Senator Ron Johnson told Meet the Press host Chuck Todd Sunday morning that a Marshall Plan is a long-term solution that will take time to do. It does nothing to end the suffering at the border now. Johnson’s right. The humanitarian crisis is only growing and Democrats have to accept the fact that burying their heads in the sand and finger-pointing against President Trump is no solution at all.

Actress Alyssa Milano Compares Mike Pence to Heinrich Himmler, Spotlighting a Growing & Dangerous American Ignorance

What do you do when you have no concept of history or the high stakes of true evil? For some, you essentially deny the real terror of the Holocaust by comparing present-day American political figures to Hitler.

Actress-turned-ill-informed-tweeter Alyssa Milano (here) followed suit Saturday with a breathtaking post.

Her assertion? That Vice President Mike Pence’s Friday visit to a detention center at the border was tantamount to evil Nazi Heinrich Himmler surveying a WWII POW camp.

This, if I may say so, is about as inexcusably idiotic as anything a person could suggest:

An estimated 6,000,000 innocents died in the Holocaust. Men, women, and children were rounded up because of their bloodline and executed. Among other means, they were placed in gas chambers, cooked in ovens, shot, and used for shockingly cruel medical experimentation.

Border detention centers are placement centers for people breaking the law, knowing that the detention centers are there for people who break the law.

But to some people who — for an unknown reason — can’t process the notion that (not so) long ago, Adolf Hitler, Himmler, and others systematically set out to murder millions…

I can’t even finish that sentence. This entire trend is just too horrible to properly address.

Moral equivalence and the dumbing-down of a nation:

Uh, no. It’s not.

Not everyone responded with zero comprehension:

Here’s what Mike had to say, following his trip:

America has a problem at the border, and a problem with the border. Thus far, Washington hasn’t been willing to fix things.

I haven’t been to the detention centers, and I have no idea what issues there are in great need of attention.

But I do know the comparison of Trump or whichever contemporary U.S. official to Hitler warrants denouncement.

I’m unfazed by whatever someone may think about issues of government — we can all cheer and boo, and at the end of the day, to a fair degree, it’s only politics. But honestly, what Alyssa has shared here is, in my view, shameful.

Ignorance is a contagion. And spreading the notion that what happened in the past wasn’t so ghastly by suggesting what’s happening now is just as so…is a very dangerous thing.

I’ll close here with a statement from the United States Holocaust Museum in response to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s likening of border centers to Nazi concentration camps (here, here, and here):

“The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum unequivocally rejects efforts to create analogies between the Holocaust and other events, whether historical or contemporary. That position has repeatedly and unambiguously been made clear in the Museum’s official statement on the matter – a statement that is reiterated and reaffirmed now.”

For more cold water to the face, witness the real horror of innocents in ovens via this link, which tells of the deaths of 1.32 million in only three months during 1942.

Can’t Stop Won’t Stop? AOC’s Chief of Staff Wears a Shirt Supporting Nazi Sympathizer

People should really consider what who they wear.

A friend of mine takes periodic opportunities to put down Republicans; he sports Honest Abe. A guy I know is all about justice; he drapes himself with Che Guevara.

And woke AOC Chief of Staff Saikat Chakrabarti dons Subhas Chandra Bose — an Indian revolutionary, British resistor, and…wait for it…Nazi sympathizer.

Nicely done.

Saikat wore the hip T-shirt during a NowThis interview shortly after Alexandra’s 2018 election.



More on Subhas, courtesy of The Daily Caller:

By 1942 Hitler had recognized Bose as the leader of the “Free India Government.” Bose, over the course of the war, enlisted 40,000 men into the Indian National Army to help support the Japanese invasion of British India in 1944. He also recruited Indians to help fight the British in the European Theater for Hitler.  The Indian Legion Bose raised for Germany was trained as a regiment within the SS.
On one occasion Bose traveled to Germany to meet Hitler in person. During his time in Germany, Bose would broadcast propaganda for the Nazis on Azad Hind Radio, speaking in several different languages including English, Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Gujarati and Pashto.

Bose also socialized in circles with the notorious head of Hitler’s SS, Heinrich Himmler, who was responsible for enforcing the “Final Solution” which led to the persecution and death of 6 million Jews throughout the course of the war.

Not a good look for Democrats.

However, it may be that Alexandria’s fanbase isn’t exactly comprised of history scholars. #ARealPlus

Still, this is the 2nd story in a week connecting the youngest woman ever elected to Congress to Third Reich coziness — as I covered Monday, Alexandria took a comparison to Eva Perón as a compliment (here).

Yet somehow, it’s American conservatives who are the Nazis (here and here) — who were, of course, socialists.

Back to AOC, the cowfart fighter’s just coming off a weeklong run of likening our southern border to Holocaust-era concentration camps (here, here, and here).

Saikat got in on that action, too:

As punctuated by VP Pence Saturday, some didn’t appreciate the trivialization (here).

Like I said, it’s not a good look. Perhaps in some circles, it’s fashion forward; but I think most people would agree that fascism went out with skinny mustaches.

From the Washington Examiner: “Saikat Chakrabarti, the chief of staff for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, came under scrutiny for having worn a T-shirt that featured Nazi collaborator Subhas Chandra Bose. In December 2018, following his boss's congressional victory, Chakrabarti did a video with NowThis News, titled "Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Chief of Staff on Acting Fast in Congress," in which he wore a T-shirt with Bose's face. Chakrabarti's choice of apparel is receiving a fresh round of criticism after Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democrat, positively quoted Nazi sympathizer Eva Perón, the former first lady of Argentina. Bose, who wrote a book titled The Indian Struggle, visited Italian dictator Benito Mussolini in 1935 to give him a copy of the book, which advocated for a political system of fascism and communism. In 1942, Bose met with Hitler and later said in 1944 that India “should be a synthesis between National Socialism and Communism." The Times of India notes Bose "fancied himself as a world leader like Hitler and Mussolini." Bose declared himself in 1943 the head of a Provisional Government of Free India and claimed to be the head of state and prime minister, which he said he would enforce with execution of anyone who opposed him. In 1945, he died in a plane crash.” COULD YOU IMAGINE IF SOMEONE IN THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION WAS GLORIFYING A FASCIST NAZI COLLABORATOR!?!?

AOC’s Chief of Staff Fanboys for a Nazi Sympathizer Because Why Not

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., left, looks over her notes during testimony by Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former lawyer, before the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2019. Sitting next to Ocasio-Cortez is Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., right. (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)

The controversy never stops and it’s not because it’s being invented. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is really just this terrible at everything.

After taking a comparison to Nazi collaborator Eva Peron as a compliment a few days ago and quote-praising the dictator’s wife, the general coziness with fascists apparently doesn’t just stop with AOC. Now her Chief of Staff has been exposed as fanboying over Subhas Chandra Bose, a man who was a Nazi sympathizer and supporter of Hitler.

When you add this to AOC’s treatment of Israel and Jews in general, it’s hard to continue to chalk this stuff up to coincidence. This all makes up part of a disturbing worldview that she and her colleagues in the fresh face caucus hold. It’s not just sheer chance that AOC, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar all have issues with antisemitism while they speak in support of figures like Maduro and the Palestinian Authority.

I’m trying to imagine what would happen if the Chief of Staff of a Republican was caught wearing a Nazi sympathizer on their shirt. I’m going to assume, based on past freak outs over far less, that they’d be going wall to wall coverage with it. But because we are dealing a Democrat who has the coveted inter-sectional shield of protection, this will likely not even warrant a mention.

The answer is a lot.

This also comes on the heels of AOC trying to appropriate the holocaust to push her insanely dishonest narrative about the border and illegal immigration. There’s apparently no level she won’t sink to and I can’t blame her. No one outside of the right pushes back on anything she does so why wouldn’t she be emboldened?

All of this has gotten so ridiculous that we essentially just laugh and joke about it at this point. But in reality, it’s serious. Having people in power who idolize such evil figures is a road paved in disaster. Democratic Socialism, which AOC and her cohorts claim to support, is essentially a mash up of the antisemitism of fascism mixed with the idiotic and murderous realities of communism. Perhaps one day our valiant media will wake up and realize that shilling for Democrats isn’t worth the societal cost be inflicted by the emergence of the radical left, but I won’t hold my breath.

Man Confronts “Nazi” at D.C. BBQ Joint, It Doesn’t Go Well

Westlake Legal Group 2007-06-06d-day Man Confronts “Nazi” at D.C. BBQ Joint, It Doesn’t Go Well TJ Helmstetter Texas BBQ Punked Politics Nazis MAGA hat Left-Wing Insanity Hill Country BBQ Hilarious Front Page Stories Front Page Fourth of July Featured Story donald trump democrats Crazy assault

Just like D-Day.

There’s a BBQ Joint in D.C. that opened under President Bush called Hill Country BBQ. Having eaten there many times, I’ll give it the Bonchie seal of approval. It lives up to it’s billing as a very good representation of Texas pit BBQ.

Given it’s food styling, it draws in one of the more diverse crowds in the area and it was no surprise that some Trump supporters decided to eat there after the Fourth of July festivities on the National Mall.

One of those people happened to be wearing a MAGA hat and this apparently triggered the crap out of some liberal dude who describes himself as a “progressive communicator.”

He’s protected his Twitter due to the sheer ratio he’s been receiving, so I can’t embed the actual tweets.

Just got thrown out of Hill Country DC for standing up to a Nazi. Don’t go there ever again. They support Trump and Nazis. @HillCountryWDC @HillCountryBBQ

— TJ Helmstetter (@TheTJHelm) July 5, 2019

Guy wears MAGA hat at my favorite restaurant. I say “hey are you from dc?” He says “no.” I say “we don’t tolerate racism in this city.” His girlfriend then physically jabs fingers into my chest and starts threatening me. Management tells me to leave, not woman who assaulted me.

— TJ Helmstetter (@TheTJHelm) July 5, 2019

I’m literally shaking after reading that.

So the “Nazi” he was confronting was actually just some random guy trying to enjoy his brisket. He offers no evidence (nor does he even try to claim) that the man was acting out in anyway that called for confrontation. This was literally just a liberal being so overly triggered by a hat that he turned into Captain America and walked over to the table. Perhaps funnier is that in the midst of his harassment, the innocent man’s girlfriend punked Helmstetter by telling him to bug off.

Instead of just taking the loss, Helmstetter decided it’d be a good idea to squeal that he was assaulted and run to Twitter with his harrowing story.

Even better, when contacted, the restaurant did the right thing and didn’t kowtow to the possible mob being summoned.

Just called the manager there and his answer was “we are an equal opportunity restaurant who welcomes all political viewpoints” before hanging up on me. cool, except MAGA hats actually make clear that POC and LGBT are not welcome at all.

— TJ Helmstetter (@TheTJHelm) July 5, 2019

And for the record, the Nazi’s girlfriend assualted me by jabbing her fingers into my chest repeatedly, and I simply backed up. Yet I was told to leave, not the Nazi or his Nazi girlfriend.— TJ Helmstetter (@TheTJHelm) July 5, 2019

Actually, POC and LGBT persons are clearly welcome just like everyone else. A red hat is not a threat to anyone nor does it delineate that a person is a “Nazi” simply because they support President Trump. The assumptions being made by this clown are just moronic. How much of a wuss do you have to be to get that worked up over someone quietly eating their dinner?

To clear up his confusion, when you violate someone’s personal space and harass them in a private setting, there is some amount of push back allowed. No one is getting arrested and charged with assault for putting their fingers into your chest and telling you to step back.

Also, I’ll note that political discrimination is illegal in Washington D.C.

This is what you get in a society who’s excesses have reached such a high level that people have to invent tyranny in order to give their lives meaning. This guy really thinks he’s a heroic fighter of Nazis because he got triggered by a MAGA hat and endured an “assault” at the hands of someone’s girlfriend. It’s pure delusion.

Unfortunately, these kinds of stories are becoming more and more common as left-wingers seek to not just disagree with their opposition, but banish them from polite society. We’ve seen numerous examples of attacks on Trump supporters, politicians, and administration officials in eateries across the country. It’s gross and uncalled for.

Eventually, someone is going to do this to the wrong person and things are going to escalate to an undesired place. We’d all be much better off as a civilization if we went back to leaving politics in the political arena. Disagreement does not denote evil on your opponent and trying to create a segregated society where people can’t even enjoy a peaceful meal is leading us into a dark place.

For the moment though we can simply point and laugh at this guy. I have a feeling he won’t be standing up to anymore “Nazis” for a while.

Leaked Document Shows Google Employees Labeling Ben Shapiro, Prager U, and More as Nazis

Westlake Legal Group google-hq-620x320 Leaked Document Shows Google Employees Labeling Ben Shapiro, Prager U, and More as Nazis youtube Social Media silicone valley Prager U Politics Nazis Media Jordan Peterson Internet Google Front Page Stories Featured Story extreme left Ben Shapiro Allow Media Exception

A Google recently uncovered document shows Google employees plotting how to make certain figures they’ve termed Nazis — or at least figures considered a gateway to Nazism — be less visible on their platforms such as YouTube.

According to Project Veritas, the document was part of an email sent between the “transparency-and-ethics” group as part of their internal communications. Within, they label people such as Ben Shapiro, Jordan Peterson, Prager U, et al as Nazis with dog whistles.

“Today it is often 1 or 2 steps to Nazis,” reads the email. “If we understand that Prager U, Jordan Peterson, Ben Shapiro et al are Nazis using the dog whistles you mention in step 1. I can receive these communications regardless of the content of what I’m looking at, and I have recorded thousands of internet users sharing the same experience.”

“I don’t think correctly identifying far-right content is beyond our capabilities,” it continues. “But if it is, why not go with Meredith’s suggestion of disabling the suggestion feature?”

Westlake Legal Group D97QM4hXYAEy5xg Leaked Document Shows Google Employees Labeling Ben Shapiro, Prager U, and More as Nazis youtube Social Media silicone valley Prager U Politics Nazis Media Jordan Peterson Internet Google Front Page Stories Featured Story extreme left Ben Shapiro Allow Media Exception

Project Veritas pointed out that after its investigation kicked into high gear, Google Senior Executive Jen Gennai posted to Medium declaring that Google was politically neutral.

“Google has repeatedly been clear that it works to be a trustworthy source of information, without regard to political viewpoint. In fact, Google has no notion of political ideology in its rankings.”

Yet, here is documentation that proves its employees aren’t taking that mindset into planning how their platforms work at all.

Project Veritas’s investigative video on YouTube’s bias was taken down by YouTube, but it can still be viewed on BitChute.

Shapiro responded to the Google document’s release.

YouTuber Dave Rubin also spoke out against Google’s labeling of the group as Nazis, especially Jordan Peterson, whom Rubin knows well.

Story after story of Google’s political bias and attempts at censorship have been surfacing lately, but here we have solid evidence of just how extreme the ideological bent is. At no point has Shapiro, Prager U, or Peterson exhibited any kind of Nazism. In fact, two of these men are orthodox Jews.

The absurdity of the claims made by Google employees is only eclipsed by the fact that they’re using this standpoint as a way to justify censorship.

‘Holocaust Denier’: Alan Dershowitz Excoriates Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for Her ‘Concentration Camp’ Remarks

Westlake Legal Group alexandria-ocasio-cortez-concentration-camps-SCREENSHOT-620x333 ‘Holocaust Denier’: Alan Dershowitz Excoriates Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for Her ‘Concentration Camp’ Remarks Uncategorized The Holocaust Nazis Israel Illegal Immigration Harvard Law School Germany Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats breitbart news tonight AOC Allow Media Exception Alan Dershowitz Adolf Hitler

[Screenshot from NBC News, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmxItMMClkk]

 

Personally, I’ve been disturbed by the Left’s references to Hitler since the days of George W. Bush.

“He’s Hitler!” signs and bumper stickers would declare.

It’s become the put-down of choice, spreading — in my view — dangerous ignorance to an entire generation. Now, it seems, any Republican leader who comes across as egomaniacal or who leads a war or who merely has conservative leanings may be subject to the Adolf treatment.

In order to compare Trump to Hitler or the border to Nazis, one must A) not know what America does, B) not know what Germany did, or C) both A and B.

Apropos, Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz threw down on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her claim that America’s running “Never Again”-style concentration camps at the border.

In fact, Alan accused AOC in a radio interview last week of being a “Holocaust denier.”

There is a sort of logic to that.

For more on Alexandria’s Instagram video that ignited a firestorm of criticism from Survivors and Jewish groups among others, please see my coverage here, here, and here.

In her video Monday, she claimed the following:

“The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border, and that is exactly what they are — they are concentration camps. And, um, if that doesn’t bother you, I don’t, I don’t know, I like, we can have, okay whatever. 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.”

Here’s what Alan had to say on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight:

“Let nobody misunderstand what she was saying. When she used the words ‘concentration camps,’ what she meant to invoke was the Holocaust. She didn’t make distinctions between death camps and detention centers, between Dachau and Auschwitz. Even in the concentration camps that may not have been death camps, so many people died because they were forced laborers and everything like that. And of course, ‘Never Again’ is the direct invocation of the Holocaust.”

Alan’s analysis of denial:

“By making that comparison, she becomes a Holocaust denier, because what’s she’s saying is: ‘Gee, if all that Hitler did is what Trump is doing on the southern border,’ then there were no death camps, there were no killing squads, there was no genocide, there was no murder of a million-and-a-half babies, there were no selections where people were picked based on their health and whether they were twins and subjected to the most gruesome form of punishment.’”

As I said, there’s a certain logic to it. But if she can be said to have denied the Holocaust, then the same accusation must be laid at the feet of the media, social media users, and — yes — conservatives who’ve made similar allegations against select left-wingers.

Evil exists in 2019, and I have no doubt government can still be its instrument, But in my opinion, no one should accuse contemporary America or any of its current or past leaders of being Nazi Germany or Hitler. The 1930’s and 40’s saw an unprecedented evil arise. Millions of men, women, and children were rounded up at gunpoint — solely due to their heritage — and murdered en masse.

The victims of the Holocaust deserve our remembrance, respect, and reverence. And our understanding that there’s no way to understand what they endured. Their suffering should never be diminished by way of reference to lesser deeds.

Delving further, I invite you to read Gene Simmons’s powerful tribute to his mother — Holocaust survivor Flora Klein. She loved America, because she knew what it meant.

What do you think of all this? I look forward to learning in the Comments section.

Thank you for reading.

What surprises me most about the reaction to freshman Representation Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s latest social media storm is how unsurprising her defenders were.

Media figures like Andrew Kaczynski and Chris Hayes lept to her defense about Rep. Liz Cheney publicly condemned Ocasio-Cortez’s use of “concentration camps” and the line “never again” in her Instagram Live tirade about the illegal immigration detention centers on the border. Her defenders were quick to say “Well, actually…” in informing Cheney and other conservatives that concentration camps have existed before and since World War II, and that the comparisons of Ocasio-Cortez’s comments to Nazi Germany’s slaughter of millions of Jews are inaccurate because work camps and extermination camps were two separate things.

Of course, this is all rhetorical nonsense. When you bring up “concentration camps,” you are purposefully invoking one image and one image only. It is the image that is burned into your brain in school when you first hear about the Holocaust. The image of bony, starved Jews, their corpses filling mass graves.

Ocasio-Cortez, though at times clueless, knew exactly what she was doing when she used the phrase “concentration camps,” and that’s not even taking into consideration the fact that she used the phrase “never again” in her comments – a phrase that was used to solidify the idea that these mass exterminations of a people should never, ever be allowed to happen. Her entire rant was meant to stir up the same emotions one feels when remembering the story of the Holocaust.

It is blatant dishonesty to defend what she said with this defense. A reference to the Holocaust is exactly what she intended, and her use of key phrases is further evidence of that.

Her ignorance on certain policy issues does not mean Ocasio-Cortez is stupid. She is intelligent. But, more importantly, she is clever. In terms of rhetoric, she is very, very skilled at playing with the emotions of those listening to her and she knows exactly how to get the response she wants out of the people she is talking to.

And here’s the thing: That’s what makes her exactly like President Donald Trump. She knows how to get the people into a frenzy over what she says. Her supporters enthusiastically cheer in agreement with the idea that the detention centers on the border are exactly like concentration camps and we know exactly what you’re saying, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez! while her opponents latch on to the words and decry them because the United States government is not conducting a mass extermination of illegal immigrants at the border because we know that you’re comparing it to the Holocaust, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez!

It’s really no different from the way Trump can tweak his audience, his fans cheering on in agreement while his opponents lose their minds over it. The only difference between the two is that Trump has been doing it longer and, frankly, does it better. But, the knack for doing it that Ocasio-Cortez has shows that at least some on the other side of the political aisle realize they have to play the game that way now.

And so, she’s trying. She knew what she was saying and how it would be taken. To underestimate her on that is to admit that you haven’t learned anything since 2016.

If you’ve been on political Twitter today, you’ve probably seen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s crazy comments on border detention facilities being “concentration camps.” She’s since doubled and tripled down on them.

This makes no sense for so many reasons that it’s hard to articulate. No one is forcing people to cross our border illegally and they are free to leave at any time. Illegal immigrants in our detention facilities are not being forced to work or being gassed with their families. Everyone being held at the border are being given due process and will have their claims adjudicated. There’s essentially no comparison at all to any historical definition of a concentration camp. If anyone commits a crime in this country, they are typically confined for some period of time while their case is processed. That’s all that’s happening at the border. How any of this is controversial, I don’t know.

No mind though. The white knights in the media rushed to defend AOC anyway because that’s what they do.

Here’s Dave Weigel from The Washington Post.

She was just talking about the Boer War you guys! Yes, I’m sure AOC, who’s knowledge of history ends with the results of last year’s American Idol, was actually giving a call back to a little known war in South Africa. That’s the ticket.

The level of gaslighting being presented by Weigel in that tweet was hard to top, but MSNBC’s resident historian managed it.

“ACKSHUALLY…”

Telling others to learn “some actual history” while defending a ridiculously a-historical assertion is the most Chris Hayes thing ever.

Even though it’s apparent that AOC meant the Holocaust, we don’t even have to speculate. Why? Because she specifically cited “never again,” which is directly referencing the Holocaust. There is no question she was making a comparison to Nazi concentration camps and it’s ludicrously dishonest to suggest otherwise.

Meanwhile, press outlets like The Washington Post decided the real story here was that Republicans were upset, because that’s always the story right?

Then something amazing happened.

The actual Auschwitz Museum chimed in and made a polite suggestion to Chris Hayes, CNN’s K-File, and others who rushed to defend AOC’s comments. It’s one of the most incredible “I’m not owned” moments in Twitter history.

I suspect “concentration camp” Twitter won’t end here though. The media are already running to post op-eds by “historians” letting us know that border detention facilities are in fact just like Nazi death camps, just at an earlier stage. I guess the CBP are the Waffen SS in this scenario, underhandedly building infrastructure leading toward the extermination of illegal immigrants? It’s all so crazy that I’m not even sure what else to say about it.

We’ve reached a level of absurdity in our political discourse that’s hard to fathom.

Twitter responses to AOC’s ‘concentration camp’ claim have been all over the map

There have been two main responses on Twitter today to AOC’s claim that the US is running concentration camps. Many blue-checked progressives followed AOC’s dishonest lead by denying she meant anything to do with the Holocaust and insisting she was using a more general definition of the phrase. The other response was to simply admit she was referring to the Nazis and cheer on the comparison. The fact that these two responses are at odds didn’t seem to bother many of her fans. First, here’s the ‘actually, she’s technically correct’ reaction:

Chris eventually, sort of, backed away from this a bit, admitting that maybe AOC had gone a bit too far in making an implied Nazi comparison:

Lots of people didn’t bother to explain themselves this clearly, they just posted the dictionary definition of “concentration camp” to prove the phrase didn’t have to mean death camp:

Anyway, you get the idea. Lots of people tweeting screencaps of the dictionary. There was also a whole subset of these responses suggesting “concentration camp” could have been a historical reference to the Second Boer War. Case in point:

The bottom line is that she didn’t mean what she clearly meant. Deny, deny, deny…

Of course, AOC used the phrase “never again” and said the president was a “fascist” which seems to clearly evoke a specific type of (NAZI) concentration camp. But AOC’s fans were eager to ignore these details and instead pretend she’d be making a generic remark about the Boer War…or something. I think they did this mostly because they felt the NAZI comparison wasn’t as defensible and they desperately wanted to defend her. It was a pathetic and dishonest spectacle.

The other reaction on the left was to simply take note of the obvious Nazi comparison she had made and cheer it on. That’s what Rep. Jerry Nadler did, completely undercutting the claim she didn’t mean those concentration camps:

But he wasn’t alone. Lots of people agreed we’re now on the path to another Holocaust:

There are hundreds of more tweets like this embracing AOC’s Nazi comparison as a warning of things to come.

So there you have it. AOC was using the dictionary definition of “concentration camp” which is not about Nazis because she definitely wasn’t making that comparison. Also, she’s was clearly warning us it’s 1933 and we’re about to see a repeat of the Holocaust. Take your pick. For AOC fans, the important part is that, whatever she said or whatever it meant, she’s 100% correct.
