Holocaust survivor Ed Mosberg, 93, is laying into Democrat New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for saying that U.S. migrant detention centers on the southern border are “concentration camps.”
Ocasio-Cortez refused to accept an offer from Poland-born Mosberg’s organization From The Depths to tour concentration camps and the Auschwitz museum. Now, Mosberg is making his feelings on the Democrat lawmaker known.
“She should be removed from Congress. She’s spreading anti-Semitism, hatred and stupidity. The people on the border aren’t forced to be there – they go there on their own will. If someone doesn’t know the difference, either they’re playing stupid or they just don’t care,” Mosberg stated in an interview Saturday with the New York Post.
“Her statement is evil. It hurts a lot of people. At the concentration camp, we were not free. We were forced there by the Germans who executed and murdered people – there’s no way you can compare,” Mosberg said.
“She should be taught a lesson. If you’re not there, you will never know what happened. She doesn’t want to learn – she’s looking for excuses. I would like to nominate her for the Nobel Prize in stupidity,” Mosberg stated.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) posted on Twitter this weekend that Americans should report ICE raids and work to harbor illegal aliens in order to facilitate lawlessness and hamper President Trump’s immigration agenda.
Ocasio-Cortez is pushing a talking point that migrants who are overwhelming the border are being housed in concentration camps.
”The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are – they are concentration camps – and if that doesn’t bother you,” Ocasio- Cortez said.
“I don’t use those words lightly. I don’t use those words to just throw bombs,” she added. “I use the word because that’s what an administration that creates concentration camps is. A presidency that creates concentration camps is fascist and it’s very difficult to say that.”
This has offended pro-Jewish groups who feel that her comparison trivializes the tragic events of the Holocaust.
“The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum unequivocally rejects efforts to create analogies between the Holocaust and other events, whether historical or contemporary,” the US Holocaust Memorial Museum said in a statement released on Monday.
“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,” it continued.
The incendiary remarks from Ocasio-Cortez and her radical socialist ilk in the Democratic Party are only dividing the country further and making the U.S. less safe, a glimpse into what the future of America will be unless the demographic shift is swiftly reversed.
