Ocasio-Cortez dunks on Liz Cheney again for using Nazi language to defend Trump: ‘Enjoy defending concentration camps’

Published

Dick Cheney’s daughter continued to receive ferocious backlash after she falsely claimed that Donald Trump’s tent cities are not “concentration camps.”

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) demanded Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) learn history — while revealing she knew little — during a Twitter outburst.

“The U.S. is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are. … ‘Never Again’ means something … we need to do something about it,” Ocasio-Cortez noted.

“Please AOC do us all a favor and spend just a few minutes learning some actual history. 6 million Jews were exterminated in the Holocaust. You demean their memory and disgrace yourself with comments like this,” Cheney argued.

“What do you call building mass camps of people being detained without a trial?” Ocasio-Cortez asked. “How would you dress up DHS’s mass separation of thousands [of] children at the border from their parents?”

Eight hours later, Ocasio-Cortez again dunked on the Wyoming Republican.

“Also Liz Cheney, the fact that you employed the horrifying word ‘exterminated’ here (co-opting the language of the oppressor) tells us that it’s you that needs to brush up on your reading,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote. “Hope you enjoy defending concentration camps. I won’t back down fighting against them.

Ocasio-Cortez also retweeted several people attempting to explain the reality to Cheney:

Published

President Donald Trump began Sunday by saying that four Congresswomen of color should go back to their country of origin before they try to be American officials. The greatest problem is that all of the women are Americans, three of which are naturalized. Both cable news and social media was filled with accusations about Trump's racism, prompting #TrumpIsARacist and #RacistInChief to trend on Twitter across the nation.

Trump employed the "I know you are but what am I" defense, saying that the Democrats are the real racists. It's a strategy he's tried with accusations of "fake news" in the past and it's proven to be successful in feeding his supporters the response lines.

Trump was manipulated into choosing Mike Pence as VP — especially by Kellyanne: new tell-all book

Published

on

Another excerpt of the book "American Carnage," by Politico Magazine reporter Tim Alberta has dropped and it's just as shocking as the first bit published by Axios earlier Sunday.

According to the excerpts of the new tell-all book on the administration, President Donald Trump was essentially manipulated by multiple staffers, into picking Mike Pence as his running mate.

Here’s how lies and hypocrisy took over the Republican Party and hit an all-time high

Published

Last week, before Trump’s buffoonish cave on his attempt to hijack the census, Greg Sargent wrote about Attorney General William Barr’s emerging role as Trump’s enabler in undermining the rule of law — first in the census case, then in the challenge to the Affordable Care Act.

The connection between the two is straightforward, according to University of Michigan law professor Nicholas Bagley. “In both, Barr directed his lawyers to make bad-faith arguments, just because Trump said so,” Bagley told Sargent. “That’s a blow to the integrity of the Justice Department and a threat to the rule of law.”
