DESPICABLE: Nadler Backs AOC Comments Comparing U.S. Detention Centers To ‘Concentration Camps’

Ezra Friedlander, CEO, The Friedlander Group with House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler

First he turned his back on Israel and Jews around the world with his glowing endorsement of the Iran deal under Barack Obama. Now, Congressman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) is siding with Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who has compared U.S. detention centers on the southern border to Holocaust concentration camps.

Will Ezra Friedlander once again back Jerry Nadler – as he did during the Iran deal?

Ocasio-Cortez, speaking Monday on her Instagram video, did not mince words describing the border situation for immigrants as similar to the infamous Nazi Germany camps for Jews, gypsies, or any other so-called “undesirables” under Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich regime.

“The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border. And that is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps. If that doesn’t bother you, I don’t… I like…,” Ocasio-Cortez said, before becoming too appalled at the thought and changing her approach.

“I want to talk to the people that are concerned enough with humanity to say that we should not, that ‘never again’ means something,” she continued. “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.”

Bu Nadler came to her defense Wednesday afternoon.

“One of the lessons from the Holocaust is ‘Never Again’ – not only to mass murder, but also to the dehumanization of people, violations of basic rights, and assaults on our common morality,” tweeted Nadler, chairman of the powerful House Judiciary Committee and one of the most prominent Jewish lawmakers.

Taking to another social media outlet, Ocasio-Cortez defended her words in a tweet directed at Wyoming Republican congresswoman Liz Cheney, who said her words “demean” the memory of the 6 million Jews murdered by the Nazis.

“Hey Rep. Cheney, since you’re so eager to ‘educate me,’ I’m curious: What do YOU call building mass camps of people being detained without a trial? How would you dress up DHS’s mass separation of thousands children at the border from their parents?” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted at Cheney Tuesday.

Cortez then went on video and doubled down on her despicable comments:

Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer blasted AOC in a must watch video.

Hemmer became visibly irate after playing the clip and demanded to know if the Democratic congresswoman had ever been to Auschwitz, Dachau or even the U.S. border itself.

“I tell you, she’s not afraid of throwing out these phrases,” Hemmer said Tuesday. “I don’t know if she’s been to the border yet. I don’t believe I’ve seen a report to suggest that… She used the extermination of six million people. She used the phrase, ‘Who are concerned enough with humanity to say that never again means something.'”

“Has she ever been to Yad Vashem in Jerusalem? Or Auschwitz-Birkenau in Southern Poland? Or Dachau in Germany? ‘Never again’ is the phrase that Jews all over the world use to make sure that the extermination between 1939 and 1945 never happens again. And she’s using concentration camps to describe what’s happening on the Southern border. How in the world is that acceptable? Does she not owe every Jew on this planet an apology?”

Even Chuck Todd of meet The Press, a liberal Democrat slammed the Cortez remarks:

“The ignorance of AOC is absolutely unbelievable,” said Dov Hikind, former New York State Assemblyman, founder of Americans Against Antisemitism, and himself a child of Holocaust survivors in response to Ocasio-Cortez’s comparison of American migrant detention centers with concentration camps from WWII.

  1. Agree or not, YWN needs to stop with the judgments in the headlines. “KIDDUSH HASHEM” and “LOCK HER UP” and “STUPID” are judgments.
    If you want any credibility for “news,” please stop.

  2. The Jews of Germany and Europe were citizens and they were taken by force to the concentration camps.
    Same with the Japanese Americans. They were citizens. It was wrong.

    But on the southern border, the people there (I do feel bad for the kids, because their parents brought them there) aren’t citizens of the host country. They don’t like it there, don’t break the law by crossing the border.
    No comparison. Please……….

  3. The comments by AOC are outrageous. But why is anyone surprised? She was recognized to be brain dead a long time ago. She captures the attention of the masses by saying outrageous things, despite having a nearly absent knowledge base. Did she graduate elementary school with merit or by social engineering? Don’t try to educate her because she has emotional connection to her version of facts, and it is not subject to change even when faced with truth.

    I used to watch the media for reports of her antics, and would be entertained and irritated by them. I no longer do so. It’s getting boring. Several minutes of viewing some comedy on the web is far more productive, in the sort and long term. We all need to chill, and lend our energy to insuring that she get voted out of office. MABA – Make Alexandria Bartend Again. It would be a favor to her, the public, and the bar drinkers of the world.

  4. 1.We should be kind to the child, and say “easily confused” or “ignorant”. She is the victim of having been educated at an elite American university, so one can’t expect to much from her. It is unlikely she is unaware of the holocaust, so one can conclude she is accusing Donald Trump of mass murder, which is typical of the Democrats use of the infamous “Big Lie” technique to defame the president (if you tell a big enough lie, often enough, people will believe it). She wants to be a good Democrat (capital “D”) in the increasingly anti-democratic (small “d”) party, and she is learning that sticking to the party line is the way to advance your career.

    2. In all fairness, she may be technically correct, since the term “concentration camp” dates back to the British Empire and was used originally for rounding up civilian populations and concentrating them where the army could keep an eye on them for the duration of the conflict. The German’s concentration camps, at least after the decision was made to murder rather than expel Jews, are probably better called “death camp”, but it gave “concentration camps” a bad name. Based on the original definition (pre-WWII) definition the imprisonment of illegal aliens could be called “concentration” camps, though perhaps the term “refugee camps” or “displaced persons camps” would be better.

  5. LOL. She’s definitely not a holocaust denier, as she’s literally comparing something to THE HOLOCAUST.
    Dumb or ignorant, maybe. But unfortunately, the same can be said about the author of this article.

  6. she is a dumb as a rock. This is the face of the democrap party today. She is speaking for all or the democraps would shut her up by taping you a.. oh I meant her mouth. she speaks nothing except oral diarrhea.

  7. She’s living proof that Trump is right! He wants educated, intelligent immigrants. They should consider people from Puerto Rico as foreigners. It was a big mistake making them part of the US, a hundred years ago.

  8. There is a crisis of mass immigration and children being held and separation of families. It doesn’t need to be compared to the holocaust to be recognized as a crisis. Can we get to the root of the problem? They all want to come in, why? It’s a universal problem. Not only an American problem just because they chose to emigrate to America. Life is sooo bad for them there that they’re willing to risk being detained and separated from their kids! They know it’s gonna happen but it’s still better than staying in their countries of origin! Where’s the U.N. and all the humanitarians of the world? It’s a South American crisis which needs to be addressed! They can’t all move to the US! There’s an exodus going on!

  9. Health: While AOC ancestors lived in Puerto Rico, her father was American born, and was a professional, and for the most part she was raised in suburbia, attending suburban schools and going to an fancy private university (dorming). She’s a child of American privilege trying to pass herself off as otherwise. Do not blame Puerto Rico for her. She is a product of the “best” America has to offer in terms of education. On the other hand, the Puerto Ricans might blame us for dumbing down their American cousins.

  10. Someone should ask AOC if the ICE officers are Nazis, and if the people who are being detained are being experimented on medically, worked to death, starved, tortured, gassed, and cremated. Someone should show her the pictures of the piles of dead, naked bodies, and the burnt bodies in the ovens, and the skin made into lampshades, and then ask her if the people who are being detained are being treated like that.

  11. If detaining and treating nicely the hundreds of thousands of people is not correct – what is her solution to dealing with the thousands of people pouring in here daily. Should we just let them pour in and disappear? How long should we continue that for? I would love to hear her solution to this problem. If you ever got her in a corner and forced her to answer this, I believe her answer would be that anyone and everyone can stay on condition they vote for her next time. Let the country be ……

  12. Akuperma, always looking to defend a Dem. She’s obviously trying to compare a situation where animals from central and South America are creating a cystic situation to Jews who perished.

  13. She was, is, and always be a goy with a goyish kup, but Nadler is a Jew??? and he should not be backing her. It is Jews like him who taught the goyim and Nazis Y”MS how to treat the Jews. And remember how our dear President Roosevelt denied entry to the US to our ancestors whose lives could have been saved. These camps have no comparison to the Nazi Concentration Camps. And even in America, no goy will be mistreated and abused as our ancestors, the KEDOSHIM of the Holocaust. Shame on you Mr. Nadler

  14. nadler go to gehenim. Self hating Jews like nadler and schmuer do much destruction to Yidden schumer is nothing but a crook who along with blumental from Connecticut took money from the Russia. Also Joe [biden] china took over $2,000,000,000 along with his son. this is what you want for President.

  15. The use of genocidal charged labels, like concentration camps, by the Democrats is further proof of their anti-Semitic dispositions, and their desperation at branding the Trump administration culpable of the illegal immigrant fiasco that the democrats themselves have negligently fostered into a crisis. The Democrats were against illegal immigrants going into previous elections, but once in power, those illegals became their new voter-base add-ons, to the decimation of USA territorial integrity. The Democrats are ignoring the Trump administrations pro legal immigration policies, and hindering their effectiveness at properly managing the unprecedented barrage of illegals from the southern hemisphere. To classify these encampments by illegals as concentration camps shows tremendous disrespect for the border authorities and their efforts to provide required services in a conscientious and manageable manner. None of these people are being slaughtered, cremated, or forced into work details 10-18 hours a day; don’t think that concentration camps can be de-classified as benign holding facilities.
    It is a global tragedy that the countries being fled from are so detestable politically, economically, and socially that America is the ONLY place that their people view as an alternative for themselves or their children (they’re not satisfied with Mexico). I agree with the administration’s efforts to hold those countries accountable, and advocate for regime change and the deployment of pressures, e.g. tariffs. Unfortunately, the cultures of racism, religious intolerance, elitism, graft, nepotism, embezzlement, and illegal trade markets are so deeply embedded in those societies, that real change is nearly impossible. What’s also unfortunate is that along with genuine immigrants (who should follow immigration protocol), criminals, killers, and other deplorable types are trying to get into the US for reasons that should preclude them. How do you weed them out, if you don’t have an immigration process? Even then, many have protection from their originating government crime rings to give US immigration authorities’ false info, or none at all. Perhaps we should send them to U.S. Territories for processing. There are five major U.S. territories: American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. A U.S. territory is a partially self-governing piece of land under the authority of the U.S. government. Guess what, they don’t want them!
    The solutions include: legal immigration applications and processes, online and classroom US citizenship education, fleeing from tyranny safe houses managed and protected by US embassies, that can begin the immigration process.
    There are many problems here, but caring more about those who are breaking into our country, than that who have devoted their lives to living here lawfully, patriotically, and with conscientiousness is unjust.

  16. My dear friends in the CR:

    I join you in wishing we were free of the likes of Schumer and Nadler. Neither of them possess the moral values that deserve our support. But we have a serious problem. Both are pieces of the Democratic Party machine in our neighborhood, and they somehow manage to funnel enough government money to the Jewish organizations that they capture their support and votes. We need a grass roots uprising that will oust them from their positions. We need our major organizations to solidly protest these moves, and refuse to meet with them again to show support for them or to ask for their favors. That’s the system. We do not have a way of volunteering them for a trip to the Space Station. We will talk with our votes. Both of these have been disgraces. Neither are stupid. They are evil. AOC takes stupidity to heights never yet seen in Washington. With Hashem’s help, she will soon return to tending bar.

  17. AOC Fulfills a more or less a similar role in her community As mr. friedlander has done
    She at least got herself elected

  18. Ezra Friedlander is a paid foreign agent.
    He’s in the oldest business in the world, that’s right- A high class one to boot.
    Socialite: “Mr. Churchill, what kind of woman do you think I am?!” Churchill: “Madam, we’ve already established that. Now we are haggling about the price”

  19. AOC is a low IQ moron , so when she uses words besides “Like”, “Whatever” and “You Know” she is reading it directly from the material supplied by her Democrat handles. Her statements are based on official Democrat platform.

  20. So what is “despicable” — that they are in effect denying the Holocaust by saying that Auschwitz was no worse than American detention centers for illegal aliens, OR that they are claiming that Trump is engaged in mass murder and that there are gas chambers and crematoria in the American detention facilities?????

  21. @ yudel ,
    Here’s another one from Churchill to socialite who berated him for being intoxicated one evening.
    ” Madam, yes, but in the morning I’ll be sober, and you’ll still be ugly.”

  22. Akuperma -“She’s a child of American privilege trying to pass herself off as otherwise.”

    Well she succeeded. She represents a Hispanic community. Those Democrats always blame others for all society ills!

  23. Kudos to YWN for drawing the line in the sand. This is why we come here instead of the other Jewish publications that are bought out by this kapo. I don’t mean Nadler.
