Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has been taking considerable heat for comparing the U.S. border detention facilities to “concentration camps.”
In a show of support for her fellow Democrat, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is now backing the 29-year-old by bolstering AOC’s claims comparing the actions of ICE to Nazi Germany.
A Concentration of People
To hear Omar justify AOC’s comments is like listening to a child try to define a word that’s a little out of their reach.
Her reasoning is beyond simple and it fails to take the actual significance of “concentration camps” and the historical meaning they carry for the entire Jewish community.
Omar stated, “When you look at what is taking place, people are being put in camps. And when you think about the definition, if we separate it from death camps, I would say these are camps and people are being concentrated in them. And so that’s the general definition.”
Well, actually, that is not the “general definition,” Rep. Omar, it’s a circular definition that does nothing to actually define the phrase.
Comparisons to Nazi Germany
AOC had to know she was going to take heat for daring to make such a comparison, but she did so purposely to enable the entire party to push the Nazi narrative against the Trump administration again.
Omar herself fell right in line with the narrative later in the same interview.
She stated, “When you talk about the process of de-humanizing people so that you can exterminate them, there is a process.
“When you are constantly engaging in the kind of rhetoric this administration has engaged in — when it comes to immigrants and people who are seeking asylum and refugees — we have to be alarmed.”
Dems are trying to convince not only Americans but the entire world, that this administration is beginning the process of working towards another Auschwitz.
It is slowly being engrained in the minds of people to associate border facilities with concentration camps so Democrats can once again try to exploit the racist narrative against Donald Trump and his supporters.
