The Left Condemns Chuck Todd for His Correction of AOC's Embarrassingly Ignorant Concentration Camp Remarks

[Screenshot from Meet the Press,]


As I covered previously, on Monday night, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to Instagram to do the thing she does: Wax philosophic on things about which she appears to have zero understanding (here).


AOC claimed Donald Trump is running concentration camps along the border.

Witness the dumbness:

“That is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps. The fact that concentrations camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of the free is extraordinarily disturbing and we need to do something about it.”

The remarks brought the ire of Liz Cheney and Jewish groups (here), among others.

It also gained a “Right On” from Jerry Nadler:

But MSNBC host Chuck Todd took time to correct the 29-and-a-half-year-old who doesn’t seem to know things:

“Fair enough, but congresswoman: Tens of thousands were also brutalized, tortured, starved and ultimately died in concentration camps. If you want to criticize the shameful treatment of people at our southern border, fine — you’ll have plenty of company. But be careful comparing them to Nazi concentration camps. They’re not at all comparable, in the slightest.”


Sounds right as rain.

But cue the outpouring of condemnation of Chuck from the Left.

That included more goofiness from the freshman representative:

Check out Vox writer Carlos Maza:

“Most shameful”!

And uh…in news, neutrality is a virtue. In fact, neutrality is supposed to be the only thing news is. News is supposed to be only objective facts (here).


Chuck wasn’t being “neutral,” however. But he was being right.

Nevertheless, he’s a disgrace:

Hollywood director Judd Apatow joined in, heaping shame:

And here’s Democratic strategist Adam Parkhomenko:

“Strategist” is a good word.

Many on the Left — and, it could be said, in politics in general — aren’t concerned with being right; they’re concerned with winning. Why make sense when you can say something that sounds good (here)?

Did Alexandria win? Not with people who have any understanding of the border and the holocaust. But among voters who are dummies (here), well…never say never.
