Holocaust survivor Ed Mosberg accused Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of “spreading anti-Semitism, hatred and stupidity” Saturday.
Mosberg, 93, was responding to Ocasio-Cortez’s insistence on calling detention facilities housing illegal immigrants “concentration camps” in his interview with the New York Post.
“She should be removed from Congress. She’s spreading anti-Semitism, hatred and stupidity,” Mosberg said. “The people on the border aren’t forced to be there — they go there on their own will. If someone doesn’t know the difference, either they’re playing stupid or they just don’t care.”
The freshman congresswoman said the Trump administration is running “concentration camps” on the U.S.-Mexico border for immigrants June 18.
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.”
