What do you think when you hear the words ‘concentration camps’?

I’d say 99.999% of people, like me, would assume something to do with the Nazi Holocaust during World War 2.

Why would we all think that?

Well, try putting ‘concentration camps’ into Google search and see what comes up on the results page. When I did that today in preparation for writing this column, every single entry that appeared on my screen alluded to the Nazis.

So when freshman Democrat congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez used that term to describe what President Trump is doing with illegal immigrants pouring over the Southern border, she knew exactly what she was doing.

The firebrand young ‘progressive’ politician wanted the world to know she thinks Trump is the new Hitler.

That’s why she posted an Instagram live-stream video to her millions of followers yesterday stating the US government is ‘running concentration camps on our southern border.’

To emphasize the link to Hitler, she said she wants to talk to people “who are concerned enough with humanity to say that ‘never again’ means something.”

Ocasio-Cortez, or ‘AOC’ as she likes to call herself, added: ‘The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the Home of the Free is extraordinarily disturbing and we need to do something about it.’

The New York representative claimed Democrats are ‘losing to an authoritarian and fascist presidency’ and clarified: ‘I don’t use those words lightly. I don’t use those words just to throw bombs. I use that word because that is what an administration that creates concentration camps is. A presidency that creates concentration camps is fascist and it’s very difficult to say that.’

And lest anyone didn’t get the message loud and clear, she declared: ‘Asking to be a refugee and applying for status isn’t a crime. It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany.’
