Holocaust Survivor Wants AOC ‘Removed from Congress’ for Border Remarks After She Rejected Auschwitz Tour

Holocaust survivor Edward Mosberg slammed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) for refusing an invitation to tour a Nazi concentration camp.

As IJR Red reported, groups against anti-Semitism offered Ocasio-Cortez the opportunity to travel to a Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz in response to her comments comparing border detention centers to concentration camps.

However, the lawmaker refused the invitation and also refused to apologize for her comments. Mosberg, the president of the group From The Depths, slammed Ocasio-Cortez for her decision.

“She should be removed from Congress. She’s spreading anti-Semitism, hatred and stupidity,” Mosberg said to The New York Post. “The people on the border aren’t forced to be there — they go there on their own will. If someone doesn’t know the difference, either they’re playing stupid or they just don’t care.”

Mosberg claimed that the difference is that the Jewish people were not willingly in the camp and they were being contained to be murdered.

“Her statement is evil. It hurts a lot of people. At the concentration camp, we were not free,” Mosberg said. “We were forced there by the Germans who executed and murdered people — there’s no way you can compare.”

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted out her defense of her claims by saying that her constituents would support her.

However, Mosberg criticized her for her unwillingness to learn from people with a different perspective.

“If you’re not there, you will never know what happened. She doesn’t want to learn — she’s looking for excuses. I would like to nominate her for the Nobel Prize in stupidity,” he said.

AOC is a lunatic. If she actually thinks she will ever serve more then 1 term in anything she should be commuted to a mental asylum. I really hope she reads these comments and see what real people think about her. What all of these politicians neglect to tell you and all the news organizations that are reporting on these detention facilities is that these people can leave. Yes they can ask to be released and go back to Mexico. They would rather stay in these air conditioned detention centers with a roof over their heads and clean running water… Read more »

Of course she thinks her voter base still loves her she clearly lives in an altered state or reality she has shown clear signs of mental illness and has a serious self esteem problem where she has to have any attention she can get. She then uses the same line of defense for anything she doesn’t want to do. You’re a racist or a islamaphobe or a white supremacist if you disagree with me on anything I say. She literally makes shit up then refuses to apologize or even openly admit to the fact she is a blatant liar. This… Read more »

IJR is so confusing.

I can’t reply to comments linked by “Load More Comments”.

The testing procedures here must be so lax.
