Socialist AOC refuses invite to concentration camps, falsely calls it a ‘far right’ manipulation for political gain

As we and others have reported, recently-elected Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has received a number of invitations to visit Hitler’s actual concentration camps in order to get educated on the subject.  One of those who addressed her was GOP Rep. Steve King, who encouraged the ignorant socialist to accept an offer to visit the sites.

But AOC chose to remain ignorant on the topic and refused the offer, calling it a “far-right” manipulation for political gain.

She also advanced a media-generated lie that King met with “fringe Austrian neo-Nazi groups.”

“The last time you went on this trip it was reported that you also met w/ fringe Austrian neo-Nazi groups to talk shop. So I’m going to have to decline your invite. But thank you for revealing to all how transparently the far-right manipulates these moments for political gain,” she wrote on Twitter, responding to King.

Of course, her low-information supporters followed her blindly, without any question, but others had a different point of view.

Our good friend Jeff Dunetz, who runs The Lid, asked about the invitation AOC received from a member of the Polish Parliament:

Good question.  Apparently, she’s choosing to turn that down as well, since ignorance seems to be her stock in trade.

Another person asked:

That’s simply her MO…

Dov Hikind — a former Democratic New York State Assemblyman — also wanted to know:

Another person trolled AOC with a political cartoon that pretty much says it all:

Final thought: If ignorance is bliss, then Ocasio-Cortez must be the happiest person on the planet.
