93-year-old Edward Mosberg, who volunteered to escort Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a tour of Auschwitz, called for the New York freshman to be removed from Congress.
Ocasio-Cortez famously compared US holding facilities for illegal aliens to the Nazi concentration camps.
Rep. Steve King and Mosberg volunteered to give AOC a private tour of Auschwitz but she shot them down with a cruel, snarky response.
The last time you went on this trip it was reported that you also met w/ fringe Austrian neo-Nazi groups to talk shop.
So I’m going to have to decline your invite. But thank you for revealing to all how transparently the far-right manipulates these moments for political gain. https://t.co/TQkaPEESoD

Mosberg has now called for the offensive Democrat to be removed from Congress.
The Hill reported:
Edward Mosberg, a 93-year-old who is president of the Holocaust commemoration group From The Depths, criticized the freshman lawmaker for her comments calling U.S. migrant detention centers “concentration camps.”
“She should be removed from Congress. She’s spreading anti-Semitism, hatred and stupidity,” Mosberg told The New York Post. “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.”
Throughout his life Mosberg has worked with various groups to commemorate the memory of the Holocaust.
