Not concentration camps

Dear Editor:

“The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are,” quipped 14th District Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

AOC stirred up the world’s most gruesome imagery to whip her nihilist brigade into a fury.

Migrants, aided by well-trained progressives, willfully amassing at our border, demand entry and benefits, meet lawyers and media, but are equivalent to Jews forcibly herded into ghettos, stuffed into cattle cars with accruing corpses, brutal concentration camp guards shoving them with or without their children toward Zyklon B chambers or slave labor.

AOC’s political point is incredibly “disproportionate.” Her district’s Nazi concentration camp survivors are callously retraumatized. Worse is the silence of the adults in AOC’s Democratic room. Lowest are Democrats in an increasingly antisemitic Democratic Party justifying her comments.

Innocents forcibly removed home, a crazed violent hell suffused with arm-numbered slaves, human ash, mountains of children’s shoes — AOC’s inner world is too rigid for such images.

AOC, witness the real concentration camp experienced by your district’s holocaust survivors. Take your Democratic presidential hopefuls, herd them into comfortable jets to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum.

AOC’s, Omar’s and Tlaib’s unchecked antisemitic images trigger antisemites. Hate crimes against Jews in NYC are up 82 percent in 2019, over 50 percent of hate crimes target Jews.

Our community sees the Democratic leadership falter. Thanks to those sane leaders who unequivocally condemned AOC’s disproportionate imagery.

Caring for undocumented persons and their taxpayer hosts requires compassionate reality-based policies set by leaders caring more about constituents than about careers.

Justice Democrats choosing career over values in ominous times — thoughtful caring voting Americans are calling you out!
