Earlier this week, it was reported that according to a recent poll, Ocasio-Cortez is not very popular with her constituents. While addressing her fans on Instagram, the unpopular Socialist-Democrat congresswoman gave her constituents another reason to not support her in 2020, as she compared our U.S. detention centers on our border with Mexico to concentration camps.
Many in the media, in the Jewish community, on social media, and in the Republican Party blasted Ocasio-Cortez for her ignorant remarks.
The defiant AOC doubled down on her ignorance and tweeted, “I will never apologize for calling these camps what they are.” in response to an article tweeted by “The Hill” blasting her for her remarks.
DHS ripped 1000s of children from their parents & put them in cages w inhumane conditions. They call their cells “dog pounds” & “freezers.” I will never apologize for calling these camps what they are. If that makes you uncomfortable, fight the camps – not the nomenclature.

While Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refused to condemn AOC’s vile remarks, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) spoke out against AOC’s comments, saying she needs to apologize, and that she clearly doesn’t understand history.
From The Hill:“I think Congresswoman AOC needs to apologize,” McCarthy said, referring to Ocasio-Cortez. “Not only to the nation but to the world. She does not understand history.”
“She does not understand what is going on at the border at the same time. But there is no comparison…and to actually say that is embarrassing,” McCarthy added.
“To take somewhere in history where millions of Jews died…and equate that to somewhere that’s happening on the border…she owes this nation an apology,” he said.
In a random act of journalism, the far-left, MSNBC host, Chuck Todd condemned AOC’s remarks comparing immigration centers on our border with Mexico to concentration camps.
