Striped Pajamas

In the Holocaust novel The Boy In The Striped Pajamas, 9-year-old Bruno is told by Pavel, “Just because a man glances up at the sky does not make him an astronomer.”

I cite this quote because the Bronx Bolshevik continues to demonstrate her incalculable callowness by deliberately connecting the United States to Nazi Germany in the public’s mind.

She hammered the Trump Administration for putting migrants in “concentration camps” during an Instagram live stream Monday night.  A day later, she tweeted a link to an Esquire article from last week which quoted a University of Virginia lecturer saying concentration camps have a far larger meaning than usually associated with the Nazis during World War II.

"The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the land of the free is extraordinarily disturbing," Ocasio-Cortez said.

"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.”

So provocative were her remarks the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York condemned her preposterous comparison in the strongest terms possible in a letter they sent her the following day.

“Since 1976, the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York has acted as a key source to the New York Congressional Delegation on issues of concern to 1.4 million member New York Jewish Community.  As our city is home to the largest Holocaust survivor community in the United States, we would be pleased to work with you to arrange a visit to a concentration camp, a local Holocaust museum, hear the stories of local survivors, or participate in other educational opportunities in the hopes of better understanding the horrors of the Holocaust.”

“Until that time, we urge you to refrain from using terminology evocative of the Holocaust to concerns about contemporary political issues.”
The shameless hypocrisy of the Left is breathtaking.  So short are their memories they forget that in 2014, in the midst of a panic over the surge of Central American children and families into the U.S., the Obama Administration started holding hundreds of families in a makeshift facility in New Mexico and built a pair of permanent family detention centers.

His July 8, 2014, request to Congress included “$879 million [for ICE] would pay for detention and removal of apprehended undocumented adults traveling with children,” several hundred million in funding for the State Department to “repatriate and reintegrate migrants to Central America, and $5 million in a media campaign in Central America to “deliver the message that unaccompanied children are not given a permit to stay in the U.S.”
Dog pounds? Freezers?

Oh Sweetie, what do you have to say about this photograph taken on June 25, 2014 showing Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, visiting the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Nogales Placement Center with then-Governor Jan Brewer and Nogales Mayor Arturo Garino?

Relentless hypocrisy eventually becomes the truth.  That is the calling card of the Left.
