Just when Democrats looked to have some sort of electoral advantage this election, their base comes around and annihilates it. Actually, scratch that. Their leadership did it this time.
In Colorado, the House Majority Project, a group funded by Democratic donors to keep the state House in Democratic control, today described the accommodations that illegal immigrants receive upon being detained in our country as “migrant concentration camps.”
While the intern at HMP may have thought they were being pithy, there were articles all over the media over the past few days asking – no, begging – liberals to stop comparing this situation to the Holocaust during which millions of Jewish people were exterminated. Like here, and here, and here. And here.
These comparisons are not only completely inaccurate, but deeply offensive to those who lost friends and family in the Holocaust, likely the worst human rights atrocity in history. We want to know whether Democratic legislators, who receive funds from this organization, share this offensive view that renowned lawyer Alan Dershowitz calls “a form of Holocaust denial.” So, lefties, what say you?
In case you found the local level commentary from the left abhorrent, Democrats at the national level also jumped the shark. Democrat U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters told a rally in Los Angeles:
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
Do Democrats in Colorado agree with these positions? If not, they should denounce their leaders for taking such radical views.
