MSM Pundits Slammed For Defending AOC Holocaust Comparison

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is taking heat this week after she casually compared the border crisis to the holocaust, drawing wide condemnation from Jewish groups and others who thought her comments were in extremely poor taste. 

In response, the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York slammed AOC, writing in a Tuesday statement: "We are deeply disturbed by the language used in your recent Instagram live video which seeks to equate the detention centers on America's southern border with Nazi-era Concentration Camps." 

"The terms 'Concentration Camp' and 'Never Again' are synonymous with and evocative of the atrocities committed by Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany," the letter continues. 

Enter liberal pundits

For some strange reason, several MSM pundits decided to die on this hill - defending AOC's comments by lying or splitting hairs. It was not a good look: 

Chris Hayes drew a rebuke from the Auschwitz Memorial Twitter account after the MSNBC host suggested to Liz Cheney should 'learn some actual history' about the difference between 'concentration camps' and 'death camps.' 

Hayes eventually backed off, tweeting ""concentration camp" is an extremely charged term and I get why many people are, in good faith, uncomfortable with its application..." 

And people are seeing right through these semantics games.
