When you think “concentration camps” what comes to mind? Probably Hitler gassing the Jews for being Jews. Yeah? Same here. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, however, might have a different definition other than mass genocide. In the video below, pulled from her Instagram, AOC says America is running concentration camps on the Southern Border. Check this out:
In a video posted to her Instagram last night, @AOC accused the United States of running concentration camps at the southern border.

Okay, the recycling of the Japanese Internment camps, that’s a new one too. I’ll have to look into it.
She also tweeted this, as if supporting her initial claim that the United States borrowed a chapter from He with Terrible Facial Hair Choices.
This administration has established concentration camps on the southern border of the United States for immigrants, where they are being brutalized with dehumanizing conditions and dying.
This is not hyperbole. It is the conclusion of expert analysis ⬇️https://t.co/2dWHxb7UuL

So yes, the definition of “concentration camp” here isn’t the same as a concentration camp as it applied to Hitler’s anti-Jewish sentiments. Check out this screen capture with a poignant pull quote:
M’kay, so the United State’s concentration camps aren’t actually, like, real concentration camps.
Also, and I feel like this is important, the people in these “camps” at the Southern Border weren’t exactly collected from their homes, their beds turned over in the middle of the night, and shoved into cattle cars on a train. The people at the Southern Border tried invading the United States.
Yes, invading. They tried breaching the United States border. That’s an invasion, my babies. There are other ways to deal with invaders, might I add, that don’t include a tent, a cot, and three meals a day. There are also other ways to secure a border other than a wall, including devices buried just below the ground’s surface. I’m not suggesting we do such a thing, but let’s stop pretending the United States is the big bad for insisting people respect the United States.

Enforcing immigration policies isn’t like the Holocaust. At all. Detaining foreign invaders after those invaders tried invading our country, that’s not like the Holocaust either. The only thing that is like the Holocaust is the Holocaust. With abortion being a close, far more rampant, second.
If you don’t want to be holed up in a desert tent with a cot and three meals a day, a simple suggestion: don’t try invading the United States.
As for AOC, she may be beyond help.
