In fact, Graham accused the newly elected congresswoman of comparing the caravan of refugees currently in Tijuana with the Holocaust.
On Sunday, Ocasio-Cortez posted a tweet that attempted to point out the similarities between the caravan the member states and other groups who’ve escaped desperate situations in their home countries.
On Monday, Graham decided that Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t actually asking for tendernes for the caravan members but was somehow insulting Holocaust survivors.
Although Graham likely thought he was “owning the libs, ” Splinter News pointed out why his tweet induced no sense in vicious style 😛 TAGEND
“First off: What kind of sociopath realizes a person conveying empathy at children being tear gassed, and thinks to themselves’ you know what they need? A museum! ’”
The website went on to suppose what might happen if Ocasio-Cortez did “take Graham up on his completely dickish suggestion” to visit the Holocaust Museum.
“Odds are pretty good that even though they are she’d be informed about the German transatlantic liner St. Louis , which spent weeks during the spring of 1939 urgently trying to find a port of departure for its hundreds of Jewish passengers fleeing the Nazi Government — merely to have their attempt to dock in the United States blocked by the Roosevelt administration since, as the Museum’s website explains‘ they did not have US immigration visas and had not passed a security screening.’”
Both specific comments by Ocasio-Cortez and Graham came after U.S. border agents fired tear gas on hundreds of migrants near the border with Mexico after some of them attempted to get through the fencing and wire separating the two countries.
On Monday, Ocasio-Cortez recommended another way to handle the caravan that she felt might have better makes than the current situation 😛 TAGEND
