Red-Green Alliance and Concentration Camps

 

Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (socialist) called the facilities where our immigration service detains illegal immigrants “concentration camps,” and made it clear that she meant to compare the detention centers and the American civil servants to the Nazi concentration camps and guards. She did so by invoking the post-Holocaust battle cry “Never Again,” claiming that we were violating that moral imperative. Never mind that the new masses of illegal immigants, including the children, crossed our southern border because her party has conspired to use them as hostages and golden keys to subvert our laws for permanent ruling advantage.

AOC is comfortable expressing her loathing of America and trivializing the actual Holocaust, to say nothing of the gulags. She will pay no more price than her comrades, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib. She is operating safely within the interests of the red-green alliance. The radical left and political Islamism are both served by simultaneously demonizing American defense of the constitutional republic and diminishing the public perception of real eliminationist totalitarianism.

While “Never Again,” has been used both to refer to the particular horror of the attempted elimination of all Jews and to refer universally to genocide, the power, the punch, comes from the images, the video, the many accounts, of the Nazi eliminationist program. There were no camps used in the Rwandan Genocide. Rather there was mass murder by machete, directed by old-fashioned AM radio transmission, while President Bill Clinton and the Canadians ensured there would be no effective resistance by a small but competent military force. Apparently, the fine sounding phrase just did not apply.

The ADL and the SPLC are two of the foremost racketeers. But what you have to understand is that the accusation of “hate” […]
