Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told one giant lie that could end her career
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is in hot water.
The freshman Congresswoman is used to being at the center of controversy, but this time she went too far.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told this one giant lie that could end her career.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez kicked off a national firestorm when she falsely claimed Donald Trump was running concentration camps at the southern border.
Millions of Americans could not believe an elected official minimized the slaughter of six million Jews by comparing it to the President enforcing immigration law.
Ocasio-Cortez knew she was in deep trouble and tried to spin her way out of it.
She fired off a series of tweets trying to claim she was not referencing the Nazis and instead offered up the dictionary definition of “concentration camp.”
“This administration has established concentration camps on the southern border of the United States for immigrants, where they are being brutalized with dehumanizing conditions and dying. This is not hyperbole. It is the conclusion of expert analysis,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
Ocasio-Cortez followed that up by lying about the reaction to her outrageous slur.
“And for the shrieking Republicans who don’t know the difference: concentration camps are not the same as death camps. Concentration camps are considered by experts as ‘the mass detention of civilians without trial.’ And that’s exactly what this administration is doing,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
This was all a lie.
In her livestream where she made the concentration camp analogy, Ocasio-Cortez also used the “never again” phrase associated with trying to prevent another Holocaust of the Jews.
The fake news media worked overtime to try to cover for Ocasio-Cortez, but there was no sweeping this under the rug.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made light of the Holocaust and then lied about it.
And many Americans believe she should pay the political consequences at the ballot box in her next election.
