The fact that concentrations camps are now an institutionalized practice in the Home of the Free...


Let me stop you right there, Representative. It's the "Land of the Free, and the Home of the Brave."

In other news: "House GOP Führer does not understand history."


Ocasio-Cortez has defended her remarks, which have been praised by some Democrats and even actor and activist George Takei, who was interned by the U.S. government alongside fellow Japanese Americans during World War II.


George Takei

@GeorgeTakei
I know what concentration camps are. I was inside two of them, in America. And yes, we are operating such camps again.

Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, said American Jews are "disgusted by the cruel treatment of children and families at our southern border."

The lawmaker, who is Jewish, tweeted Tuesday night: "If you want to show solidarity with American Jews, help us to stop this, and don't feign outrage at the language that people use to describe this tragedy."

What abject bull#.

Takei was, at the direction of FDR, in an internment camp during WW2. This was yet another crime against Americans by a democrat.

The situation at the border is a humanitarian crisis. They cannot be allowed to enter the US and they have pending claims of asylum. Those people have to be housed somewhere.

To call refugee/illegal immigrant camps concentration camps makes Takei, Ocasio-Cortez, and every other leftist who parrots this lie are complete idiot unworthy of being taken seriously by adults.

Maybe call the Jew in this picture an anti-semite as well while you're at it?
Wait! You're an adult?

Meanwhile, on Tuesday the Trump administration argued in court that they don't have to provide soap, toothpaste, or beds to the children they have detained in these facilities.

No soap in those big eyes.
No toothpaste in those small stomaches.
No bed-time disturbs the insomnia.

All that freedom those Trump-Camps provide... try to concentrate on that?

Gosh, I'll bet they wish the people who brought them here, brought them here legally.

I guess I'd take it over being kidnapped and raped, sold into slavery. Tortured, killed. But they, thats just me.

AOC Invited by Polish Parliamentarian to see concentration camps



“As you should be aware, the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (Nazi), who led Germany, were responsible for the darkest period in my country’s and our whole continent’s history by devising a chain of concentration camps in order to exterminate those who they believed were subhuman, or a threat to their imperialistic machinations - this included both Jewish Poles and non-Jewish Poles, and as a result we lost six million of our citizens"


Here's the PMs tweet to AOC:

TARCZYŃSKI Dominik

People cheering on AOC are tone deaf at best, stupid as hell at worst.

Y'all need to stop defending this idiot.

...he said, after citing a PIS idiot from Poland. WTF was that that, a joke wrapped in a riddle?


Two years ago I was comparing Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler. People didn't believe me. They thought I was being hyperbolic, exaggerating. They couldn't believe that Trump would build concentration camps. Well, he is doing it now. They're not death camps, but the definition of a concentration camp is where you are concentrating one element of the population that you consider to be undesirable and therefore need to be segregated and imprisoned. In this case it is undocumented immigrants, primarily from Latin America, who are being put in these concentration camps. The original plan was for Donald Trump to put hundreds of thousands of people in these camps. Trump's administration is still pursuing that policy.

Psychiatrist John Gartner: "Two years ago I compared Trump to Hitler. People didn't believe me"

Hombre, do we even speak the same language?

I used to think Nancy Pelosi was the most far left ignorant rep on the left, but I've never seen stupid like I have with Cortez.

I actually fully support her rhetoric, though, because at the rate the democrats are going, it won't be long before there are next to none of them left as they push so many to the right or middle. The only unfortunate part of that, however, is that there will always be a divide somewhere, so we'll have to see where the right and middle decide to divide because if one thing is certain, it's that we'll never all see eye to eye on everything. But whatever, whenever, and wherever that happens, thank God there won't be but a small handful of racist, hateful, spiteful, hypersensitive, bigoted left wingers remaining to wither away.

I'm always embarrassed and angered when they throw around labels like Nazi, concentration camps etc... If I was a Holocaust survivor I would be beyond mad and calling them out on their BS. How people even listen to or believe this crap is appalling. In school we all learned about the Holocaust atrocities. You can do a quick search and see the pure evil that was inflicted on millions. To even imply that anything like that is going on is sickening. I can't believe they have continued to get away with it.


Exactly. On top of that, it's like they've forgotten all about this little hypocritical demand.

Liberals aren't known for having a long term memory, that must be why they forgot about this from a couple years ago.

They're just concentrating kids in camps, right? No ZyklonB, hence the term can' be applied. Same with fascism. No El Duce, no Nazis with Swastikas, hence the term can't be applied.

But. Still. Concentration camps without gas-chambers and fascism in the land of the free, home of the brave. It's a solid provocation for the political theater, detain a minor or two? And don't forget to have some fun with those WMD's in Iran!

Newsflash:
She did not call it a genocide (yet) and the Nazis had lotta German citizens in their concentration camps as well.


The land of the free is still land in a nation of laws. Home of the brave, correct, and this home still has laws. Without the brave to keep them applied, we'll falter. Every country in the world would love to see us destroy ourselves but it ain't happ'nin.

A lot higher than the media would have the mouth breathers believe... Hard to pull well over 100,000 (standing outside just to listen) to a reelection announcement rally while the best your opposition can do it pull in a couple hundred.

How many US citizens are being held in these so called concentration camps?


How many people here know that our US Constitution applies equally to every human being, not just citizens?

Our forefathers weren't idiots. They designed it that way because they lived through tyranny. And it's been upheld by our highest court over and over.



The US Constitution is for US citizens. Shocker, eh?

Oh, to see some violent suppression of the opposition. Sadly it's only Trump's supporters that get that treatment. 1 thing you can count on most government officials to do is lie. Far too predictable on that count.
