VP Pence Goes on the Attack, Claiming the Holocaust Has Been Cheapened to 'Advance Some Left-Wing Political Narrative'


The even-tempered Mike Pence, who has largely avoided many of America’s most divisive and toxic political debates, had some words yesterday for those who seek to “[cheapen] as a cliché” the Holocaust.

“[W]e must never allow the memory of those lost in the Holocaust to be cheapened as a cliché to advance some left-wing political narrative,” Pence said. “But sadly, in recent weeks, that’s exactly what some Democrats have done in the national debate. Last month, a leading Democrat in Congress actually compared our U.S. Customs and Border Protection detention facilities to concentration camps. And her allies in Congress, the left, and the media shamefully came to her defense.”

Seeming to take a jab at freshman Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), who defended Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) Holocaust comments on ABC’s This Week, Pence went on to say:

“As recently as yesterday morning, one of [AOC’s] allies in Congress was asked if they agree with comparing the noble and compassionate work done by U.S. Customs and Border personnel at detention facilities to the concentration camps of Nazi Germany, and she answered, ‘absolutely.’”

Pence then went further on the attack, saying : “To compare the humane work of the dedicated men and women of Customs and Border Protection with the horrors of the Holocaust is an outrage.” 

As American politics continues to intensify, one must wonder if Holocaust comparisons will ever be called out for the facile, inane arguments they are, or if they will continue to be ignored for political expediency.
