Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) made shocking remarks about concentration camps on Friday, stating that she does not “even know why” it is “controversial” to compare immigrant detention facilities run by the U.S. government to concentration camps.
Omar’s comments came in response to a question from a reporter at The Rebel, who asked Omar: “Do you agree with AOC that ICE is running concentration camps on the border?”
“There are camps and people are being concentrated,” Omar responded. “This is very simple. I don’t even know why this is a controversial thing for her to say.”
“We have to really, truthfully speak about what is taking place and this is why it’s really important for us to abolish ICE and make sure that we have an agency that is accountable to the people.”

Many condemned Ocasio-Cortez’s remarks, noting that her comments amount to Holocaust trivialization, which is on the spectrum of Holocaust denial and is a form of anti-Semitism.
For the love of G-d, do not use what the Nazis did to six million Jews and five million other “undesirable” people as a comparative tool for policy decisions you do not like that have absolutely *nothing* in common with the genocidal character of Hitler’s despicable actions.

First we had two weeks of non-stop abortion debate, then a couple of weird days where rapists and murderers used the platform to reinvent themselves and now its wall-to-wall Holocaust-trivialization. pic.twitter.com/5GtvAhrMwQ

Which is to say that not only is she dead wrong on the merits, but she has ZERO moral high ground here.
