She's decided to turn down an offer to visit a concentration camp with a Holocaust survivor.
In her words, "Ocasio-Cortez responded by saying she was rejecting the offer as she believed it was part of how "the far-right manipulates these moments for political gain."
Ocasio-Cortez wrote: "The last time you went on this trip it was reported that you also met w/ fringe Austrian neo-Nazi groups to talk shop. So I’m going to have to decline your invite. But thank you for revealing to all how transparently the far-right manipulates these moments for political gain."
Dershowitz blew her up in a recent interview. Called her a Holocaust denier.
This is a great example of what I’m talking about on the other thread about bias and demographics on the board.Of course he does, but he wasn't asking her to go with him nor planning on going. She was invited by a holocaust survivor to travel with her. King was simply suggesting she do it because he had and it opened his eyes. Naturally, she responded with what she always does, "it's a right wing conspiracy". She's ****ing stupid. King is a piece of ****.
AOC made an outrageous and offensive comment because, in the moment, she was more interested in being provocative than being historically accurate or honest.
Then, when she was invited to do something difficult—step outside her liberal echo chamber and spend some time with a Holocaust survivor to talk about why her comments were wrong and hurtful—she instead chose the easy way out.
She not only turned down the meeting, but also doubled down on stupid and offensive by claiming that a Holocaust survivor is in league with Neo-Nazis.
But, if you’re paying attention, that was just the excuse. The point was that she could not and would not even deign to put herself in a position that might require her to humble herself, to consider someone else’s feelings, and to own her mistake.
Instead of being magnanimous and unifying Americans, she was remarkably selfish and childish and further divided them.
