Just when you think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez couldn’t say anything dumber she goes and surprises in a big, big way.
In a recent Instagram Live, the freshman Democratic congresswoman said that the United States is actually running concentration camps on our souther border.
No matter who you are, no matter what party you happen to belong to, whenever you try and compare the tragedy of the Holocaust to anything in today’s political climate, it’s not going to end well. More than six million innocent people lost their lives for no apparent reason.
After the rising Democratic star made yet another moronic statement, you knew those in the media would come out in full force and defend her. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, the liberal commentator, was arguably the loudest in his defense of Ocasio-Cortez.
If you spend a few minutes learning some actual history, you will find out that concentration camps are different from death camps and have a history that both predates and extends far past the Nazis. https://t.co/Bccy3SaXW0

Many responded to Hayes’ defense of the media’s darling, including the Auschwitz Museum.

Here's some recent history, under Obama, these border concentration camps were called Gymborees. Crazy how names change in just a couple years.
