When you hear the term "concentration camp," what's the first thing you think of? The concentration of German nationals by Woodrow Wilson during World War One, right? Or maybe the forced concentration of the Whites by the Reds following the Finnish Civil War?
No. You think of the Holocaust of course, which is why it was quite irresponsible for Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to declare recently that the United States's "fascist government" (Is there a more self-defeating argument than calling the ruling regime "fascist" and facing zero consequences?) is operating "concentration camps." What the government is actually operating are detention facilities to deal with the surge in migrants crossing the Mexican border. To my knowledge, said detention facilities have not yet undertaken the genocide of millions.
So absurd is the comparison and insulting to actual Holocaust survivors that Ocasio-Cortez's only recourse—what with her deathly allergy to apology or self-reflection—was to double-down that teeeeeeechnically "concentration camp" is not synonymous with "death camp," so there.
