A Polish member of parliament wrote a letter to an American congresswoman. On any other week, that would be the set up for a joke. A joke which would probably get us deplatformed. Instead, the joke is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is still insisting that America is running concentration camps on the southern border (see Dear Democrats: For the Love of God, Enough with the Holocaust Comparisons and WATCH: Chuck Todd Mans Up, Calls Out AOC for “Concentration Camp” Comments). With arguments that almost sound like something Eric Cartman would say on South Park after making fun of Kyle’s really Jewish cousin.
The more serious point is the one Dominik Tarczyński makes in his letter inviting AOC to visit Poland to learn about actual concentration camps. As in Hitler’s concentration camps.
With this letter, I am formally inviting @AOC to come to Poland,where Adolf Hitler set up the worst chain of concentration camps the world has ever seen, so that she may see that scoring political points with enflamed rhetoric is unacceptable in our contemporary Western societies pic.twitter.com/ivOTfmiCfo

The money shots:
“I write to you out of distress in having learned of your recent statements regarding concentration camps.”
“This is why when someone cheapens the history, or uses it for political point-scoring, we become agitated and upset.”
Yeah because what AOC is doing is cheapening the millions of lives lost so she can help her sick party win elections. I’d call that pretty cheap.
We’re a comedy site that likes to give our humorous takes on the news. But I have to be honest. The more Cortez keeps trying to make excuses for using the Holocaust to score American political points, the less funny it is. Made worse by the number of leftist allies tying themselves in a pretzel to make excuses for her.
I would be nice if she took the MP up on his offer. She’ll probably just Instagram herself making Matzoh ball soup instead. But really, there’s nothing wrong with furthering one’s education. Even if one has the intellectual prowess of a plastic spoon.
