Concentration camp survivor Ed Mosberg has seen the true face of evil. The 93-year-old lost his entire family to the Nazi regime’s Holocaust, and he spent some time himself in two separate Nazi camps. So he was not amused when New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had the audacity to insinuate that the migrant detention camps at the U.S. border were essentially the same thing. In fact, he was irate. In an interview with The New York Post, Mosberg said that it was time for the girl they call AOC to give up her seat in the House.
“She should be removed from Congress,” he said. “She’s spreading anti-Semitism, hatred, and stupidity. The people on the border aren’t forced to be there – they go there of their own will. If someone doesn’t know the difference, either they’re playing stupid or they just don’t care.”
Well, we’re not sure Ocasio-Cortez is merely “playing” stupid, but she is certainly careless in her rhetoric. What’s more disturbing, though, is that she’s not the only one. Tons of liberal defenders jumped out of the woodwork to say she was absolutely right to call the Trump administration’s facilities “concentration camps,” even though the only thing you have to do to stay out of said camps is…you know, walk in the other direction? Oh, and no one is being forced to work. And no one is certainly being gassed to death.
“Her statement is evil,” Mosberg told the Post. “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 is a member of the Holocaust educational group From the Depths, which invited Ocasio-Cortez last week to tour Nazi concentration camps for a little refresher on history. To no one’s surprise, she declined the invitation.
“She should be taught a lesson,” Mosberg said. “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.”
We second that nomination.
