Last week, Liz Cheney schooled Ocasio-Cortez after she absurdly compared border detention centers with concentration camps, and little Sandy fired back, suggesting that Cheney had “co-opted the language of the oppressor” by using the term “extermination camps” (‘Sandy’ seems clearly ignorant of Elie Wiesel’s own reference to Auschwitz as an extermination camp.)
