In a powerful new video, David Tuck and Sami Steigmann, two survivors of the Holocaust, describing their experiences during World War II while calling out Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for comparing US detention facilities to concentration camps.
“You have no concentration camps here,” said Tuck, a survivor of four different camps.
Discussing Ocasio-Cortez, Tuck remarked, “She’s looking out for herself, there must be a purpose, a reason,” adding, “Why would she say it? She wants to be popular.”
“I went through it,” said Steigmann, asking “How can you, looking at my face, tell me that the camps that they have in the south are concentration camps?”
Steigmann added, “You are insulting every victim of the Holocaust, shame on you.”
Hey @AOC – guess who knows more about concentration camps than you? These Holocaust survivors. They have a message for you. Why don’t you listen – for once.
Great video by @TPUSA

Social media commenters, including Gad Saad, a man who escaped a death sentence in the Middle East for being Jewish, remarked on AOC’s comparison while urging the freshman Congresswoman to educate herself.
No way Donald. @AOC is a woman of color in Trump’s MAGA country. She faces much greater daily threats than those Holocaust survivors ever did.

This is so powerful and heart breaking. I genuinely hope @aoc watches this video and apologizes to these Jewish victims for using their horror to score cheap political points.

@AOC doesn’t know how to listen.

This is such a beautiful video!! @AOC, “Don’t Compare”. The immigrants at the border have food, water, and blankets (those blankets are the best blankets they could possibly have in this situation).

#AOC you need to watch this, as apparently your history teacher did not teach you correct history
