That just about sums up AOC to a tee. In fact, he believes that AOC deserves a Nobel prize… for stupidity.
Ed Mosberg, 93, was responding to Ocasio-Cortez’s insistence on calling detention facilities housing illegal immigrants “concentration camps”. Mosberg knows about concentration camps. He survived the Plaszów concentration camp in Poland and Mauthausen concentration camp in northern Austria. But, in the process, he lost his entire family.
His mother, grandparents and cousin died at Auschwitz. Mosberg points out that illegal immigrants come to the border on their own volition and are not forced there like the Jews were. They were rounded up and sent them to various camps.
Mosberg survived through the Holocaust at the Plaszów concentration camp in Poland and Mauthausen concentration camp in northern Austria, losing his entire family along the way.
“Her statement is evil,” he said. “It hurts a lot of people. At the concentration camp, we were not free. We were forced there by the Germans who executed and murdered people — there’s no way you can compare.”
After hearing of the congresswoman’s comments, Mosberg, who lives in New Jersey, said he sent her an invitation to visit Auschwitz and tour “German Nazi concentration camps” through the Holocaust education group of which he is president called From the Depths. Mosberg’s mother, grandparents and cousin died at Auschwitz.
“They give my wife’s mother [benzine] injections to the heart and put her on the fire,” he continued.
Mosberg said he was disappointed by the rejection, adding that Ocasio-Cortez could have learned from the experience.
“If you’re not there, you will never know what happened,” he said. “She doesn’t want to learn — she’s looking for excuses. I would like to nominate her for the Nobel Prize in stupidity.”
