AOC just brutally slammed a GOP congressman after his reply to her “concentration camp” tweet

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has been embattled by outraged conservative critics all week long after she pointed out the truth about the fact that the Trump administration’s detention camps for refugee children perfectly fit the dictionary definition of “concentration camps.”


Ocasio-Cortez’s Twitter-based crusade to stop the human rights abuses in our nation’s immigration enforcement system has attracted predictably negative responses from her Republican congressional colleagues whose lips are firmly attached to President Trump’s posterior in their support for his despicable immigration policy implementation.

The New York congresswoman was also invited to join a tour of the Nazi Auschwitz death camp with one of the few remaining survivors of the Holocaust by a right-wing Jewish group who objected to her comparison of America’s immigration detention centers to the camps where Hitler began his campaign of extermination after a propaganda campaign against Jews that used identical tactics as Trump’s rhetoric against Central American immigrants.

When Congressman Steve King (R-IA) — the extreme white nationalist representative who was stripped of his committee memberships by his fellow Republicans after a series of racist comments — saw the Holocaust commemoration group’s invitation to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, he felt the need to urge the congresswoman to accept their offer.

The progressive newcomer to the House reacted strongly against the idea of taking advice from a noted white nationalist sympathizer and let King and the other GOP House members who have attacked her over her uncompromising stance on the internment camps know her feelings in a series of devastatingly brutal tweets.

Ocasio-Cortez reminded Rep. King that he lacked the moral standing to be lecturing anyone over criticism of human rights abuses given his racist proclivities.

She also directed a tweet towards Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) the GOP conference chairwoman asking her to corral her minions before they said something even more offensive.

Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez also reminded Representative King about what else he did on his trip to visit Auschwitz.

If reminding the world of King’s meetings with neo-Nazi leaders wasn’t enough to discourage Republicans from going after her deeply held convictions on the treatment of refugees, the New York progressive representative explained her feelings towards racists in no uncertain terms.

Now that’s the kind of advice we like to hear from our congressional representatives! Fight on, AOC!
