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.
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."
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.
“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"
Y'all need to stop defending this idiot.
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.

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.

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

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.
