While Nazi-Trump comparisons are all the rage among the radical left in 2019, the offensiveness of these insinuations is often overlooked.
Just think of the outrage that the nation had when Jussie Smollett was accused of faking his own “hate crime” for attention and money. We saw a petty, shallow actor weaponize hate for the sake of a fatter paycheck, and we were absolutely incensed. This phony invocation of one of nation’s most damning realities was not just uncouth, it was offensive in a way that defies common angst.
In the same vain, the constant chatter about the Trump administration being akin to the Third Reich offends any and all who have suffered at the hands of those 20th century evils. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been at the forefront of this narrative, consistently and boldly claiming that migrant detention centers in Texas and elsewhere are “concentration camps”.
White House adviser Stephen Miller is none too pleased with the comparison, and took to the airwaves in protest.
Miller appeared on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace to defend the president in the ongoing controversy over Trump’s tweets against Ocasio-Cortez and her four far-left Democratic colleagues on the “Squad.” Miller rejected the idea that Trump’s criticism was racist, and added that the four had made racially inflammatory comments. He specifically quoted Ocasio-Cortez’s repeated claim that the U.S. was running “concentration camps” at the border:
“And perhaps the most shocking of all were the comments made by Representative Ocasio-Cortez saying that our border agents are running concentration camps, and therefore they are Nazis, and therefore everyone in that audience, and you and me and everyone who supports our Border Patrol, are by extension Nazi sympathizers. We support Nazis if we support border agents.
“Now, one more point on that I have to say, which is that I’m a Jew. As a Jew, as an American Jew, I am profoundly outraged by the comments from Ocasio-Cortez. It is a historical smear. It is a sinful comment. It minimizes the death of 6 million of my Jewish brothers and sisters. It minimizes their suffering and it paints every patriotic law enforcement officer as a war criminal and those are the comments, Chris, that we need to be focusing on.”
AOC’s insistence on comparing these facilities to the Nazi death camps is not only factually incorrect, but it sends a message to Jewish people everywhere that their plight during The Holocaust was little more than temporary accommodations on the southern US border.
