    It's the feigned ignorance "What, lil 'ole me? Why, it never even came to mind that it was a Nazi reference!" defence.

    We are to believe that "concentration camps" and "never again" don't point directly like a laser at a Nazi reference.

    Nah, who would think that? It's just the generic Merriam Webster definition that those terms evoke. That's what everyone thinks of when we hear "concentration camps". Right?

    Turns out AOC was right, and most of the Trump base was wrong. Who da thunk? Besides everyone else in the world.
    Let me help you out, since you excluded a very important part. Here it is, with the part you didn't have the guts to include...

    : a place where large numbers of people (such as prisoners of war, political prisoners, refugees, or the members of an ethnic or religious minority) are detained or confined under armed guard used especially in reference to camps created by the Nazis in World War II for the internment and persecution of Jews and other prisoners.

    Just cut off the truth and mislead people, that's they way you operate? That is just clownish behavior. Why don't you just run along until you grow a spine?

    We're not all members of Trump's base. From Merriam Webster:


    Definition of Concentration Camp

    : a place where large numbers of people (such as prisoners of war, political prisoners, refugees, or the members of an ethnic or religious minority) are detained or confined under armed guard


    Looks like the American Concentration Camps check all the boxes. Large numbers of people? Yep. Refugees? Yep. Confined under Guard? Yep.


    Yeah, you've definitely got yourselves some Concentration Camps going on there.

    Or did they do they usual stunt, turn it to make it look like Trump is Hitler?
    I came up with a rather good solution to that. Check this slogan out:

    America! We're not as bad as Nazi Germany!

    Pretty good eh? Takes care of all the problems you're complaining about. What do you think?

    No I didn't. Why are you lying? I quoted the relevant part of what makes a concentration camp.

    The American Concentration Camps check all the boxes.

    Your argument appears to be that it's only a concentration camp if it housed Jews. That is ridiculous.

    From Encyclopedia Brittanica:

    During war, civilians have been concentrated in camps to prevent them from engaging in guerrilla warfare or providing aid to enemy forces or simply as a means of terrorizing the populace into submission. During the South African War (1899–1902) the British confined noncombatants of the republics of Transvaal and Cape Colony in concentration camps. Another instance of interning noncombatant civilians occurred shortly after the outbreak of hostilities between Japan and the United States (December 7, 1941), when more than 100,000 Japanese and Japanese-Americans on the West Coast were taken into custody and placed in camps in the interior.


    That is just clownish behavior. Why don't you just run along until you grow a spine?
    You're mad at me, insult me, because you don't understand how a dictionary works?

    Quit exhibiting such poor behavior, and learn to take personal responsibility for your actions.

    Yikes! With your cringey edit you just face-planted with extreme prejudice ... you are fake-news.

    Further spinning isn't helping, at all. That was pathetic.
