The Grey Beard Biker never would have believed that less than 24 hours after awarding Eric Holder the Bloviator of the Day Award, there would be another winner of this prestigious title. While not uncommon for liberals to bloviate incessantly, it takes some serious bloviating to actually receive the award.
They’re “exactly” like concentration camps
Freshman U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), in an Instagram Live video Monday night, stated, “The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the ‘home of the free’ is extraordinarily disturbing, and we need to do something about it.”
A.O.C. continued, “I don’t use those words lightly. I don’t use the words to just throw bombs. I use that word because that is what an administration that creates concentration camps is. A president that creates concentration camps is fascist, and it’s very difficult to say that.”
Wait, what? This is like throwing bombs. This is perverting history to pander to your base – a base which Grey Beard realizes is incredibly small. To compare illegal immigrant detention centers to concentration camps is sickening. The Jews, homosexuals and disabled people who performed slave labor, or were gassed in concentration camps, deserve to not be used as political pawns by an immature lawmaker from New York. And sadly, her district is home to so many descendants of the Jews who were liberated from REAL concentration/extermination camps at Aucshwitz-Birkenau, Belzec, Bergen-Belsen, Dachau, Chelmno, Gross-Rosen, Mauthausen-Gusen, Neuengamme, Plaszow and Warsaw.
Detention Centers vs. Concentration Camps
There are a few comparisons the Grey Beard Biker would like to make between our current use of detention centers and Nazi concentration camps:
- Detention centers are used in the United States to hold ILLEGAL immigrants while they await proper disposition. These people have entered the U.S. illegally, and in vast quantities, trying to circumvent our laws. Concentration camps – or extermination camps – were used to house innocent people who were viewed as inferior by a truly fascist autocrat. Concentration camp prisoners were used as forced laborers and treated like animals.
- Proper disposition of those in our detention centers will either mean being granted asylum or deportation. The disposition of people in concentration/extermination camps was either working until they died, being executed in a gas chamber or being liberated by Allied troops. More than 6 million Jews would die in what the Nazis called the “Final Solution to the Jewish Question.” Those who were exterminated, had no chance for something as humane as asylum – or deportation.
- Families and separated children in U.S. detention centers are provided health services, clothing, food, medicine, a bed and shelter. Their shelter has heating, air conditioning, running hot water to bathe in, clean drinking water, toilets and sewage systems. Obviously, besides small amounts of rationed food, which was poor at best, a prisoner in a concentration/extermination camp received nothing else. Working 18+ hours per day, sleeping on the ground in feces and urine and perhaps getting sent for a shower – in the gas chamber.
- Illegals living in U.S. detention facilities have hope. Hope for a better day when they may be granted asylum. The Jews, and other undesirable people, had no hope. They were hungry, cold, filthy and exhausted from slave labor. Many personal accounts given by liberated prisoners told stories about wanting to die because of the conditions in labor camps.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is well educated. This the Grey Beard Biker cannot deny. However, she is a stupid idiot when it comes to living in the real world. AOC has no grasp on world history, much less the history of her own country. Her bloviation, comparing U.S. detention facilities with Nazi concentration camps, is an insult to those few who survived internment and were able to live the rest of their lives in Europe or the United States. Those liberated U.S. citizens proudly called the United States home – unlike perverted politicians, actors, athletes, liberal pundits and other narcissistic leftists – including AOC herself – who denounce the United States as racist.
For this illustrious case of oral flatulence, the Grey Beard Biker proudly presents the coveted Bloviation of the Day award to Ms. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. He is confident she will proudly display this trophy in her Congressional office, where she earns $174,000 annually, from the U.S. taxpayers, by spewing garbage all over the place when she opens her pie hole! Grey Beard has one thing to say to you, AOC – shut the hell up!
