CHO Quick Reaction by Chip McLean:
I wonder how many Jewish people – especially those who came from families whose descendants included those exterminated in Nazi concentration camps – would feel insulted by Ocasio-Cortez’s trivialization of the Holocaust?
From Fox News:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the star Democratic congresswoman-elect from New York, compared migrant caravan members who clashed over the weekend with U.S. border agents to Jewish families fleeing Nazi Germany and other targets of genocide.
Ocasio-Cortez, who was elected to represent New York’s 14th Congressional District earlier this month, tweeted over the weekend in support of those attempting to cross the U.S.-Mexico border. She compared those fleeing violence in Central America to those who escaped Germany, Rwanda and Syria.
“Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime. It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany. It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda. It wasn’t for communities fleeing war-torn Syria. And it isn’t for those fleeing violence in Central America,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted late Sunday. (read article at Fox)
CHO Quick Reaction:
I’m not Jewish, but I cringe at the clueless commie’s tone deaf comparison.
Then again, this is the same woman who said she doesn’t understand why people ask how we would pay for her idea of single payer healthcare – a plan that would cost the taxpayers (using conservative estimates) $37 Trillion dollars? She has stated that the solution is simple – we would just pay for it. Right. It’s about like the two-year-old child who screams she wants a new toy, her parents tell her no, they can’t afford it, but the child yells loudly, “But I want it!”
Now this same genius is equating true refugees with a bunch of law breaking border crashers. The so-called “migrants” are carrying flags from their own countries, clashed with the Mexican police, have thrown rocks at our own Border Patrol and have tried to crash the gates at our border. These are not the actions of “refugees” or “asylum seekers”, they are the actions of lawbreaking thugs who wish to invade the country, refuse to assimilate and live off of the backs of U.S. taxpayers. Many of them are violent, gang members, drug dealers and other undesirables. While the left-wing press likes to show pictures of women and children to get your sympathy, the fact is that most of these “migrants” are young males.
If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, wants to compare these people to victims of the Holocaust, she should read some history before she speaks. If she would, she would perhaps discover these people are not Anne Frank.
