Holocaust Survivor Says Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Should Be Removed From Congress
93-year-old Ed Mosberg from Morris Plains, New Jersey spoke about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s statements. He told the New York Post, “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, a survivor of both Plaszow and Mauthausen camps, lost his entire family during the Holocaust. “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,” he explained.
I LOVE that quote from Ed Mosberg....“She should be removed from Congress. She’s spreading anti-Semitism, hatred and stupidity,” “She should be removed from Congress. She’s spreading anti-Semitism, hatred and stupidity,” https://t.co/5t9i2orrnk— VinmanNY (@vinniefish) June 29, 2019
Mosberg and his Holocaust education group called From the Depths invited Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to tour the German Nazi concentration camps. He wants to show the New York congresswoman where his mother was murdered in Auschwitz. Of course, the congresswoman declined his offer.
“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 said.
Other Holocaust survivors bashed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for calling the detention facilities “concentration camps.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t seem to care that she’s losing the support of the Jewish community.
