Holocaust survivor Ed Mosberg, 93, is laying into Democrat New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for saying that U.S. migrant detention centers on the southern border are “concentration camps.”
Ocasio-Cortez refused to accept an offer from Poland-born Mosberg’s organization From The Depths to tour concentration camps and the Auschwitz museum. Now, Mosberg is making his feelings on the Democrat lawmaker known.
“She should be removed from Congress. She’s spreading anti-Semitism, hatred and stupidity. 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,” Mosberg stated in an interview Saturday with the New York Post.
“Her statement is evil. 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,” Mosberg said.
“She should be taught a lesson. If you’re not there, you will never know what happened. She doesn’t want to learn – she’s looking for excuses. I would like to nominate her for the Nobel Prize in stupidity,” Mosberg stated.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) posted on Twitter this weekend that Americans should report ICE raids and work to harbor illegal aliens in order to facilitate lawlessness and hamper President Trump’s immigration agenda.
Ocasio-Cortez is pushing a talking point that migrants who are overwhelming the border are being housed in concentration camps.
”The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are – they are concentration camps – and if that doesn’t bother you,” Ocasio- Cortez said.
“I don’t use those words lightly. I don’t use those words to just throw bombs,” she added. “I use the word because that’s what an administration that creates concentration camps is. A presidency that creates concentration camps is fascist and it’s very difficult to say that.”
This has offended pro-Jewish groups who feel that her comparison trivializes the tragic events of the Holocaust.
“The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum unequivocally rejects efforts to create analogies between the Holocaust and other events, whether historical or contemporary,” the US Holocaust Memorial Museum said in a statement released on Monday.
“That position has repeatedly and unambiguously been made clear in the Museum’s official statement on the matter – a statement that is reiterated and reaffirmed now,” it continued.
The incendiary remarks from Ocasio-Cortez and her radical socialist ilk in the Democratic Party are only dividing the country further and making the U.S. less safe, a glimpse into what the future of America will be unless the demographic shift is swiftly reversed.
University of Memphis’s Football Team Will Wear Helmet Decals with Radical Black Lives Matter Branding
University of Memphis is making sure to jump on the radical leftist bandwagon.
On June 30, 2020, Memphis University Tigers football head coach Ryan Silverfield announced on Twitter that his team will don “BLM” stickers during the 2020 season.
“This season, for every game, our student-athletes’ helmets will have a BLM sticker. #ALLINagainstRACIALINJUSTICE,” Silverfield stated.
The BLM on the helmet decals is an acronym for the Black Lives Matter movement, with the university’s “M” tiger logo taking the place of the acronym’s M.
Silverfield tweeted this logo design a few weeks prior.

Dean Barker of Campus Reform noted that this decision is allegedly apolitical:
Despite Black Lives Matter’s support of leftist-backed causes, such as defunding the police, Silverfield says he does not intend to take a political stance by using the phrase “Black Lives Matter.”
“The use of the BLM logo on a helmet decal was an idea from our student-athletes,” Silverfield said during an interview with The Memphis Commercial Appeal. “It doesn’t mean we support any anti-American, violent organization or hate group or any specific political party. In fact, I love this country and I love our players. Rather the decal is a show of support to our team.”
Baker highlighted some of Silverfield’s credentials:
Silverfield was named head coach of the Tigers on Dec. 13, after leading the Tigers to an American Athletic Conference title, an appearance in the Cotton Bowl, and a #17 national ranking as deputy head coach during the 2019 season.
Ever since the death of George Floyd, Silverfield has been outspoken in anti-racist views. He marched with several colleagues in Memphis Athletics’ recent “Unity Walk.”
“It’s not an overnight deal, but we’ve got to continue to grow and I’ve got to do a better job myself as a head coach because I understand that I have a platform, and I have to voice myself in order to have student-athletes backs and make sure they are not being treated unjustly in all walks of life,” Silverfield commented according to a report by WMC-TV.
Although a number of college athletes took part in similar protests, the University of Memphis’ football team is the first to announce that they will use a decal to spread BLM propaganda.
Silverfield emphasized that the decal will be used continuously during the 2020 season. He believes that the decals will “have an ongoing impact.”
“This can’t just be a one-time thing where I send out a tweet or have one unity march. It’s got to be ongoing,” Silverfield during in an interview with The Athletic. “I can’t think of a better way to show support than to put it on display and do it in a proud way.”
University of Memphis President M. David Rudd declared in a statement released on July 2 that the team’s decal “does not represent endorsement of any political entity or affiliated group; it represents a commitment to social justice and American values we all embrace but have not fully realized as a country.”
“I support our athletic department, our head coach and our football team. I am proud of our young men for demonstrating leadership, encouraging civility, and for their genuine efforts to unite us so our University of Memphis family can become even stronger together,” he continued.
University of Memphis is the latest in universities jumping on the politically correct bandwagon.
More universities and sporting institutions will likely follow in the university’s footsteps, further cementing political correctness’ s hold on the body politics.
