CNN’s Chris Cuomo says “America First” is stained like “concentration camps”

It’s amazing how far the left will go to defend Ocasio-Cortez and her ridiculous “concentration camps” comment. Here is Chris Cuomo trying to suggest that “America first” is stained with Nazi nationalism after he loses the debate on ‘concentration camps’:



Chris Cuomo is a dirtbag. At the beginning of the clip he tries to disassociate ‘concentration camps’ with Nazism, yet then he refuses to allow Steve Cortez to disassociate American ‘nationalism’ with Nazism. In other words he’s saying “America First” is Nazi but not “concentration camps.” What a putz.

Look no matter what you associate “concentration camps” with, that’s not what is going on at the border. The Trump administration is not creating camps to oppress people or treat them inhumanely, and it’s an insult to our men and women at the border to suggest such madness. They are simply trying to deal with a humanitarian crisis of hundreds of thousands coming HERE every month as humanely as possible.

  1. I have been to Dachau camp in Bavaria in the 70’s. It was soul chilling and unforgettable. These leftists who throw these words of concentration camps around so causally know nothing of what they speak. Our BP goes beyond their duty to make sure the illegals are well cared for, purchasing diapers, games and candy for the children. In Dauchau, the guards…well, why ruin your day…

    1. “Our job is to control exactly what people think.”
      Mika Brzezinski, MSNBC Morning Joe.

  2. Steve is right……………..Cuomo doesn’t get to define what American nationalism is or any other word for that matter.

  3. The problem with Cuomo, his Party and their blatantly false memes and talking points about “The Evils of the Republican Party” is that with extremely rare exception their outright lies go unchallenged, at best, and are magnified and promulgated with impunity by a national media that cannot be bothered with fact-checking a single word that passes through the lips of one so sanctified and sanctimonious as anyone named Cuomo. The New York based broadcast media and their cable/satellite outlets along with CNN are solidly anti-GOP/Pro-Democrat along with supporting the agenda(s) of the Democrat Party such as Abortion (to which they refer as “pro-choice” except the only acceptable choice is support of abortion on demand) and an ever-expanding federal government.

    There’s not an independent thinker to be found among the lot of them. Fox makes some attempt at balance but they’ve recruited so many liberals from Old Media that they’ve taken on some of the same lunatic approaches to the coverage of politics.

  4. Cuomo would be totally unwatchable except for the train wreck nature of the words coming out of his mouth. They’re just so terrible I sometimes can’t look away.

    1. Could you link to Crownders comment? I watch them but not sure which one you’re referring to

  5. Trump has the only concentration camps in history where people walk 1,000 miles and climb a fence to get in. . . . LOL – Are corrupocrats really this stupid or all pathological liars

  6. “America first” & “nationalist” are “stained” terms

    This is the most aggravating thing about arguing with progressives (both left and right). They just assert this nonsense as if it’s axiomatic. It’s not. When I watched the video waiting for him to get to that part, I was waiting to see if he’d say how and why they’re stained.

    But he didn’t. He just said they were, apparently relying on an ad populum of viewers who won’t question it to support the claim.

    If you don’t have the how and the why to your claim, then just shut up. Because a rationalist is going to come and shove it right back down your throat every single time.

    1. So why is concentration camps a term describing Nazism?

      Either ignore the historical meaning or pay attention to all terms related.

    2. Well AT, in Cuomo’s world he IS god so what he says makes it so doncha know? It has nothing to do with pesky things like facts. They just get in the way of his delusions of grandeur and rabid self gratification. Sadly, most Leftists believe the same thing. It must be hard and frustrating having so many make-believe worlds and so many little gods, sigh. (Just in case this post was sarcasm, lol!)

  7. This is what I warned about with taking up the term ‘nationalism’ instead of the proper term, ‘patriotism.’

    Cuomo is indeed a dirtbag. He’s the kind of dirtbag that gladly accepts the sort of dirt that would embarass and shame other dirtbags. AOC is a meat puppet full of mixed talking points that make no sense. They can both F right O.

    But this point will never go away:
    The word ‘nationalism’ is forever linked with Nazis. I don’t care who polishes it up or who manages a heroic defense of the word, it’s still tied to Nazis. I don’t care if every conservative Jew of note, from David Horowitz, to Pam Geller, to Mark Levin, to Norman Podhoretz, to Dennis Prager, all get on stage and pronounce that nationalism is a-ok, It will still, and always be tied to Nazis.

    500 years from now, if history is allowed to be taught, it will be remembered that Nazis were nationalists, while Trumpism will be remembered about as well as Teddy Roosevelt (by few, and innaccurately).

    I think Trump is doing a fine job. I hope he avoids use of the word ‘nationalism,’ as he mostly has done.

    The word to use is ‘patriotism.’ But apparently in this century, no one has the balls to use it.

    1. Thank you for your comment, I have been fighting this from the beginning and mostly hated for pointing it out.

      We must be honest and critical of the terminology we use.

      1. Agreed. I’m somewhat alarmed at the level of history studies on the right. It’s like people know the basic facts, but understand little about scale, human psychology, or tactics.

        Similarly, there’s nothing inherently wrong with the name Adolph. But for some reason, people avoid it when naming children. Same thing is at work with ‘storm troopers;’ ‘blitz,’ and yes, ‘camps.’

    2. @k-bob “Nationalism” is tied to Nazis just like the “deutsch” language is tied to Nazis, so should we avoid the word let alone using the language!? Com’on Bob, you have more common sense than that! Don’t throw out the baby with the bath water.

      And “nationalism” has different meanings than patriotism. You can be a patriot, but anti-nationalism, but I would say that it’s hard to NOT be a patriot if you are a nationalist. Of course we have to differentiate “nationalist” from “white nationalist” which is the mistake many on the left make.

    3. @k-bob Usually I’m right there with you, but not this time, not completely. Whereas the word “nationalism” can be controversial and might be discarded for the more “politically correct” word “patriotism,” we are in a completely different conversation when we are talking about concentration camps.

      There is no ambiguity, uncertainty, or room for misunderstanding when you use this phrase. There is no “softening” of what they were, and therefore to apply the phrase to anything less is to cruelly dilute its meaning.

      You prefer the word patriotism to nationalism? Fine. I would even agree. But don’t link it (nationalism) to the Nazis. Its use just isn’t that exclusive.

      1. @nc-checks-and-balances
        I think the error of AOC in claiming that we operate “concentration camps” is a direct, unambiguous claim that we are just like Nazis. She should be excoriated for using a Nazi reference. Cuomo is a major assclown for amplifying the stupidity by “going Nazi.”

        But we can’t have it both ways. We can’t laugh at the doltish, accusatory idiocy of her using that term–because it screams “Nazi!”–and at the same time pretend that ‘nationalism’ does not at least whisper “Nazi!”

        1. @k-bob It’s a question of degree, and frankly, it’s not even close enough to make the comparison.

    4. I agree re: nationalism, Bob. 100%.

      Good to see you putting so much consideration in to proper terms that properly describe a thing, and how it ties back to a general principle (whether we like it or not). Usually we argue about that. It’s nice to agree again. Been awhile. 🙂

  8. Only in Fredo Corleone’s I mean Cuomo’s mind could America First be equated with Nazi concentration camps. Who’s turning the public schools into indoctrination camps? Who’s completely sold themselves out to the Democratic cause? CNN is the epitome of an unfree and unthinking press. Groupthink runs rampant in Zuckerland. The lack of diversity of opinion at CNN is appalling and why the network is sinking to new lows.

    1. It’s not only in Zuckerland. EVERY left wing spokesperson is guilty
      of groupthink. Their talking points must originate from the same source.
      It has to be more than a coincidence. There is NO diversity of
      thought among them. Someone or some entity has to be giving
      them their daily or weekly plan of attack, they all use the same
      adjectives and phrasings with no variation on the theme.

  9. What also irritates me beyond the obvious, is that it was the NAZI’s who were the illegal invaders into other, sovereign nations of Europe and who exterminated millions of Jews and others who were the citizens.

    We’re not invading the southern hemisphere and taking people prisoner–THEY are the invaders.

  10. First, Cuomo is a jackass. Secondly, if Democrats want to talk about concentration camps, then let’s talk about Planned Parenthood and these other medical concentration camps that provide abortion which has killed more children than those holding centers at the border.

  11. The National Socialist German Workers’ Party commonly referred to in English as the Nazi … The Nazi Party emerged from the German nationalist…. This is the association. And I do not believe that trump would have any involvement in anything even remotely close to being a Nazi.

    1. Me either. But I sure wish he’d denounce, in clear and unequivocal terms, the alt-right. Those f***ers are going to be a real problem if their ideology is allowed to take hold to any degree in this nation. Just like the socialists are now.

    2. So just because the word is in there, we shouldn’t use it for other purposes. Let me ask you this, if the “Conservative Democrats” of old supported slavery and KKK, should we stop using the word, “Conservative”?

    3. And notice how Cuomo is totally okay with the “Socialist” part of the Nazi movement. It would have been good if Steve Cortes had asked Cuomo what good came out of socialism.

  12. When someone refers to the term “concentration camp” our minds automatically go to the Holocaust”. ESPECIALLY when the “Never again” words are used, which is what AOC used. Now she and the left are trying to explain it away. She KNEW what she was saying and so do the rest of them. The difference at our border is that WE are not MAKING them come here in numbers to huge to manage properly. They are coming here ON THEIR OWN, knowing that they will have to be processed somehow. At the same time, the D-bags refuse to help with funding in any way to improve the situation. WHY? Because they just want as many in here as possible with no process whatsoever. That is the bottom line.

    1. You can’t expect those POS people to responsible for their own actions by coming here. /sarc

    2. Not saying you say it but how is that any different from using the term “Nationalism”?

      Most on this site agree with everything Trump says, one of which is Nationalism, both are indicative of the NAZI party.

      Personally I support consistency, either ignore concentration camp or realize nationalism is hated by the other side.

  13. America First is just a mostly meaningless platitude with zero historical meaning.

    Concentration camp, internment camp, holding facility, detention camp are all synonyms for the same thing. This is like trying to define what the definition of is, is. We used to call our internment camps concentration camps until we saw the horrors of the NAZI’s. So yes if you want to claim concentration camps as a NAZI thing you need to include Nationalism which also was their policy and a fundamental point of the NAZI’s and the Italian Fascist. If you want to claim love for America patriot would be a better term because it is not associated with the NAZI’s.

    This is just the leftist and the conservatives talking over each other with zero thought on either side.

    I will add both concentration and nationalism are just trigger words that cause the other side to stop listening. I know I ignore most of the crazy comment of AOC, they ignore all Nationalist.

  14. Crowder got it right, I never saw anyone volunteering to go to concentration camps.

    Cuomo, AOC, Dems need to learn some history before speaking in public, but they don’t. In the words of AOC, “facts don’t matter when you are morally right.” That’s why her statements are absurd and should be condemned by all, but the Dems won’t do it.

    Anyone notice how the Media and the Democrats all grabbed on to this phrase of “concentration camps” together at the same time? This is a good example of collusion. Tell me the media is not in bed with the Democrat party.

  15. In case these pinheads forgot, people were forcibly taken from their homes, and loaded onto trains like cattle, where they were taken to concentration camps. Few survived.

    They did nothing wrong. They broke no laws. They had absolutely no part in their fate.

    Enough with comparisons!

  16. American’s have been granted “Free Speech” under the First Amendment. Awesome.

    The sad thing about that is we have to suffer asinine morons like Cuomo and his nonsense.

  17. Steve Cortes: “You don’t get to define what nationalism means”

    Cuomo: “Yes I do”

    There lies the idiocy. Who is Cuomo to define what a word means. Who is he to negate what I think the word means, Joe down the street thinks it means, or a Martian visitor? I’ll go by a dictionary to determine the definition of a word and not some a crazy angry person who changes his mind and ideas more than his underwear.

  18. I personally don’t have a problem with the word “nationalism” Not white nationalism, but plain ol’ nationalism. I associate it with patriotism and I don’t see anything wrong with that. I’m proud of my country, and probably the most proud of the men and women in our military.

    I don’t understand the left and their desire to blame the U.S. first and degrade her as being bad or evil. Am I proud of everything the U.S. has done? No, but name one country in the world that has been perfect since it was founded. IMO we are the greatest country to ever exist, although the left is doing everything in it’s power to change that.

      1. Fascist over Communist any day?

        How about just principles like Constitutional Federal Republic which limits governments and maximizes freedom?

        Nationalism is a fundamental principle of Mussolini’s fascist principle which the NAZI’s took to an abhorrent level. If you read the original Fascist Manifesto it sadly resembles our current government.

    1. Fair enough but do you have a problem with concentration camps?

      That is just the term we used to use. Including what we now call internment camps or detention camps.

      I fundamentally disagree with using the term concentration camps which lost their definition after NAZI Germany and so should Nationalism of which both are fundamental principles of the NAZI’s.

      To be honest with all Trump fans it doesn’t matter what you feel about the word nationalist the leftist consider the Nationalist word as the equivalent of Hitler. So the left consider you the equal to the NAZI’s when other terminology like patriot is difficult to use against you.

      I could care less what people think of me however rarely can they show my principles the equivalent to the NAZI’s which is what conservatives are dong to AOC use of a term.

      1. @ozzy I really couldn’t give two shi*s what the left thinks of me or other Trump supporters. My love for this country isn’t tied to any particular leader. Unlike Michelle Obama who hated this country until Obama was elected, I love this country despite the leaders I don’t like.

        I prefer to use “detention centers” and not “concentration camps”. Concentration camps are associated with political imprisonment, forced labor, or even mass execution. The problem with AOC is that she can’t use the excuse that she wasn’t referring to Nazi Germany death camps. She tied it up by saying “never again” which is directly tied to Nazi Germany.

        1. Love of country is fine it is called patriotism.

          Nationalism especially since Nazism is intricately define as the same thing. Nationalism usually is combined with a culture. My country is the best because my culture is the best.

          No kidding you prefer detention camps over concentration camps. Prior to Hitler we only used concentration camps but Hitler redefined that meaning.. Concentration camp initially meant a literal meaning, concentrating all prisoners, all Japanese, all Germans, all Confederate soldiers, or in this case all illegal aliens, etc.

          Hitler redefined that, I am also against it, but I am also against the term nationalism.

          1. @ozzy I really don’t use either phrase but “detention” sounds more like confinement without being tied to a particular purpose. Sort of like a jail. Could be for criminals or illegals, depending on the camp. “Concentration camps” are associated with political persecution or death camps.

            You can tell me your definition of nationalism all you want but it’s not going to make me associate it with Nazi Germany just because you say they own the word or something. What’s important is what people believe it means to them. Do you know of any Trump supporters that are fascist or are Nazis? I didn’t think so.

            1. And concentration camp sounds like what?

              This whole article is about the evil left calling our whatever camps concentration camps. It does have a stigma attached to it which is why they are using it. The same stigma is attached to nationalism whether you like it or not.

              Either accept both, hate both or be a hypocrite. I could care less. I am just pointing out the inconstancy.

              Neither concentration camp nor nationalism is my definition, if I had my choice I would use the 1913 Websters dictionary, neither would make sense in today’s world. Personally I don’t declare words neither do you time language and history do.

              I just hate either left or right picking good or bad, either Nazism terms are bad or they are not. Original meanings or historical meanings after the fact not picking and choosing.

    2. I prefer patriotism over nationalism, and I do see them as different. To me, nationalism is blind loyalty to a leader of a country. If that leader is benign then it’s no big deal, and may even produce some positives. But it can also leave the door open for abuses by the leader, and the people will overlook it and even accept such behavior because of their unconditional loyalty. And of course if the leader is not benign, like Hitler, then (ultra) nationalism can have devastating results. Patriots on the other hand don’t follow their leaders unconditionally. They love their country, but they don’t always love everything their leaders do.

      1. @watchman I view patriotism and nationalism as the same thing. Tying nationalism to a particular leader doesn’t make sense to me unless you’re Michelle Obama. I hate this country….now I love this country….now I hate this country. You either love your country or you don’t, regardless of leader.

        I’m not loyal to any leader. Trump is just a blip on the radar. This COUNTRY first. Screw the POS leaders.

        1. @kong1967 I certainly agree about loving the country and what it stands for no matter what, even if I don’t like the direction it is going. If you don’t love your country you won’t care what happens to it, and that’s not us. Here’s a quote by George Orwell that perhaps sums up the difference between patriotism and nationalism better than I can:

          “Nationalism is not to be confused with patriotism. Both words are normally used in so vague a way that any definition is liable to be challenged, but one must draw a distinction between them, since two different and even opposing ideas are involved. By ‘patriotism’ I mean devotion to a particular place and a particular way of life, which one believes to be the best in the world but has no wish to force on other people. Patriotism is of its nature defensive, both militarily and culturally. Nationalism, on the other hand, is inseparable from the desire for power. The abiding purpose of every nationalist is to secure more power and more prestige, not for himself but for the nation or other unit in which he has chosen to sink his own individuality.” -George Orwell

  19. The only thing America has ever had close to a concentration camp were Japanese internment camps, and that was under a Democratic president.

      1. The left and the right are just trying to define what the definition of is, is.

        Both Nationalism and Concentration camps were redefined by Hitler from their original meaning. Both sides tend to use one or the other. No AOC should not call them concentration camps and no freedom loving person should ever use the term Nationalist because of Hitler.

    1. At the time they were called concentration camps.

      We stopped using that term when Hitler also used it, rightfully so.

  20. Despite of her flaws, I’m proud of America and want what’s best for the country. If that’s nationalism, so be.
    Secondly, Crowder absolutely nailed it with his reply. “Funny how people from other countries are lining up for our concentration camps.”

    1. Yeah generally we dont have people paying smugglers to cross several countries to get into concentration camps. Lmao

    2. Pride of country is a great thing. Pride of principles better. Nationalism is a fundamental part of fascism.

      Nationalism has irrevocably been linked with Fascism then on to the NAZI interpretation of that.

      Nobody is lining up to be incarcerated. They are either breaking in illegally or claiming asylum knowing they will be detained for a limited time.

      I get the cutsie joke but that is not reality.

  21. Every time I see Angela Rye with her resting b*tch face, I laugh. If Jesse and Al are the poverty pimps of old, people like Rye and Stacy (Michael Strahan) Abrahams are the new breed.

  22. Considering how colossally embarrassing CNN’s TV ratings are not many people saw this segment. It’s another essay on the extreme measures that CNN’s marxist propaganda ministers will take to push their lies and false narratives..

  23. They hate the MAGA movement but they never say what they want. Wouldn’t it be interesting to hear these leftists actually say what they want America to be?

  24. If I were king… My perfect Empire would have no Cuomos, Clintons, Obamas, Ginsberg’s … you get the drift…

  25. If I were king… My perfect Empire would have no Cuomos, Clintons, Obamas, Ginsberg’s … you get the drift…

  26. The problem with Cuomo, his Party and their blatantly false memes and talking points about “The Evils of the Republican Party” is that with extremely rare exception their outright lies go unchallenged, at best, and are magnified and promulgated with impunity by a national media that cannot be bothered with fact-checking a single word that passes through the lips of one so sanctified and sanctimonious as anyone named Cuomo.

    1. Could you link to Crownders comment? I watch them but not sure which one you’re referring to

  28. The only party stained by concentration camps is the Democratic Party, which actually constructed and utilized concentration camps, in America, capturing, and imprisoning, such people as George Takei. What’s the tactic? Always accuse your opponent of doing the things that you’re actually guilty of. Then, let’s not forget the Democratic Party’s aiding and abetting others that established concentration camps in World War 2 – the NAZI Party, natural brothers of the Democratic Party – through Operation Paperclip. Oh, and let’s not forget that the so called party for the “minorities” has nothing to say about Juneteenth, today, or ever. Probably because they’re still upset about it.

  29. I think of “Chris Cuomo” as a stained term, kind of like “tofurkey.”

  30.

  31. Trump has the only concentration camps in history where people walk 1,000 miles and climb a fence to get in. . . . LOL – Are corrupocrats really this stupid or all pathological liars

  32. Cuomo: What movement used the word “nationalism” and it was positive?

    Dinesh actually answered that question and there are many including Gandhi and Nelson Mandala.

    Exactly right! The left does not get to define the terms!

    na·tion·al·ist

  33. “America first” & “nationalist” are “stained” terms

    This is the most aggravating thing about arguing with progressives (both left and right). They just assert this nonsense as if it’s axiomatic. It’s not. When I watched the video waiting for him to get to that part, I was waiting to see if he’d say how and why they’re stained.

        1. Like I said the other day, projection is strong with you, @AT. So now, like the George Soros far-leftists, you wanna dictate to me which words I should be using? Oh the irony!

          1. I don’t want to dictate anything. I just want you to stop making yourself look like an idiot. I mean, at least buy a dictionary if you’re going to keep posting.

            1. So you don’t stop at projection, but you go full-blown leftist on me and now using ad hominem attacks to try to win an argument!

              1. Again, with this failure to understand basic terms.

                Seriously, the dictionary. It will serve you well. Try it out.

                1. Still engaging in ad hominem attacks I see.

                  Here’s a dictionary definition of “nationalist” for your purpose:

                  na·tion·al·ist
                  [ˈnaSH(ə)nələst]

                  NOUN

                2. I don’t read minds _____ _____!

                  By the way, most of my views fall inline with either Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, or any other Conservative out there! So how do you define yourself exactly (without using any derogatory terms)

                3. No, they don’t.

                  Your goals may fall in line with Rand or The Beard, but your views most certainly do not.

    3. And notice how Cuomo is totally okay with the “Socialist” part of the Nazi movement. It would have been good if Steve Cortes had asked Cuomo what good came out of socialism.

  35. This is what I warned about with taking up the term ‘nationalism’ instead of the proper term, ‘patriotism.’

    Cuomo is indeed a dirtbag. He’s the kind of dirtbag that gladly accepts the sort of dirt that would embarass and shame other dirtbags. AOC is a meat puppet full of mixed talking points that make no sense. They can both F right O.

    But this point will never go away:
    The word ‘nationalism’ is forever linked with Nazis. I don’t care who polishes it up or who manages a heroic defense of the word, it’s still tied to Nazis. I don’t care if every conservative Jew of note, from David Horowitz, to Pam Geller, to Mark Levin, to Norman Podhoretz, to Dennis Prager, all get on stage and pronounce that nationalism is a-ok, It will still, and always be tied to Nazis.

    500 years from now, if history is allowed to be taught, it will be remembered that Nazis were nationalists, while Trumpism will be remembered about as well as Teddy Roosevelt (by few, and innaccurately).

    I think Trump is doing a fine job. I hope he avoids use of the word ‘nationalism,’ as he mostly has done.

    The word to use is ‘patriotism.’ But apparently in this century, no one has the balls to use it.

    1. Thank you for your comment, I have been fighting this from the beginning and mostly hated for pointing it out.

      We must be honest and critical of the terminology we use.

      1. Agreed. I’m somewhat alarmed at the level of history studies on the right. It’s like people know the basic facts, but understand little about scale, human psychology, or tactics.

        Similarly, there’s nothing inherently wrong with the name Adolph. But for some reason, people avoid it when naming children. Same thing is at work with ‘storm troopers;’ ‘blitz,’ and yes, ‘camps.’

    2. I agree re: nationalism, Bob. 100%.

      Good to see you putting so much consideration in to proper terms that properly describe a thing, and how it ties back to a general principle (whether we like it or not). Usually we argue about that. It’s nice to agree again. Been awhile. 🙂

    3. @k-bob “Nationalism” is tied to Nazis just like the “deutsch” language is tied to Nazis, so should we avoid the word let alone using the language!? Com’on Bob, you have more common sense than that! Don’t throw out the baby with the bath water.

      And “nationalism” has different meanings than patriotism. You can be a patriot, but anti-nationalism, but I would say that it’s hard to NOT be a patriot if you are a nationalist. Of course we have to differentiate “nationalist” from “white nationalist” which is the mistake many on the left make.

      1. You do know that speaking German in an exaggerated manner is a standard gag, Nazi reference in comedy, right? Even Mark Levin has been pronouncing ‘Weissman” in a harsh, German accent, as an effect when discussing Mueller’s team.

        These things *stick*

        You will never be able to scrape the Nazi off of ‘nationalism.’ It doesn’t matter how hard you try.

        1. It’s pacifism in RINO fashion to surrender terminology to the left. I refuse to do that. They are hijacking words left and right–pretty soon we will be cornered in the proverbial dictionary. Just the other day, I was watching youtube video of abortion doctor who became pro-life (Dr.Levatino) and he says they are hijacking the medical words like “terminating a pregnancy” to mean “abortion” to save a woman’s life, but he says, he’s terminated hundreds of pregnancies to save a woman and never had to kill a single baby!

          1. It’s pacifism in RINO fashion to surrender terminology to the left

            You can’t “surrender” on a definition, anymore than you can “defeat” a definition. It is not in your power to control language.

            Where Republicans repeatedly fail is in letting the left define the language used to discuss an issue. Nothing requires us to use the new terms the left uses, like “social justice” or “cisgender” or even “gay.” But that’s not the problem here.

            Words acquire new, more current meaning. You can’t stop it, no matter how hard you try. Not even China can do that.

            It has nothing to do with your politics, your character, or your strengths or weaknesses. Language changes. It always has. It always will.

            Nothing you type into the Internet, from now until your last breath will remove the massive weight that Nazis placed on the meaning of nationalism. Millions of deaths and the restructuring of many nations will be the immovable historical fact that sits squarely on the timeline of that word, like the pyramids of Egypt.

            You can dig up any amount of prior usage examples that you want. It won’t change a thing.

            What you can control is what words you use that still have legitimate, original meaning.

            That’s why I write ‘homosexuals’ instead of ‘gays’ when I’m placing my words on the Internet.

            But I accept the fact that the word ‘gay’ has lost its original meaning, and so I use other words to convey a sense of carefree happiness.

    4. @k-bob Usually I’m right there with you, but not this time, not completely. Whereas the word “nationalism” can be controversial and might be discarded for the more “politically correct” word “patriotism,” we are in a completely different conversation when we are talking about concentration camps.

      There is no ambiguity, uncertainty, or room for misunderstanding when you use this phrase. There is no “softening” of what they were, and therefore to apply the phrase to anything less is to cruelly dilute its meaning.

      You prefer the word patriotism to nationalism? Fine. I would even agree. But don’t link it (nationalism) to the Nazis. Its use just isn’t that exclusive.

      1. @nc-checks-and-balances
        I think the error of AOC in claiming that we operate “concentration camps” is a direct, unambiguous claim that we are just like Nazis. She should be excoriated for using a Nazi reference. Cuomo is a major assclown for amplifying the stupidity by “going Nazi.”

        But we can’t have it both ways. We can’t laugh at the doltish, accusatory idiocy of her using that term–because it screams “Nazi!”–and at the same time pretend that ‘nationalism’ does not at least whisper “Nazi!”

        1. @k-bob It’s a question of degree, and frankly, it’s not even close enough to make the comparison.

          1. It *should* be a question of degree. Unfortunately the range of degrees has been crushed so that there’s no escaping the Nazi reference. The range is binary.

            Like I wrote: 500 years from now, when no one even remembers Trump, ‘nationalism’ will still be a Nazi reference.

            1. @k-bob We’ll have to agree to disagree. I am Jewish and have been steeped in Holocaust lore all my life. Put aside the term “concentration camp” which we all agree on. Do I always associate the phrase “Never Again” with the Holocaust? Yes. But I cannot say the same for the word “nationalism.”

              I also do not use the terms “nationalism” and “White Nationalism” – an abhorrent term associated with neo-Nazis but not the Holocaust – interchangeably.

              1. Fine to disagree. But if I had to place money on it, it would be with the fact that Nazis have forever equated several words and phrases to their regime. Nationalism is one of them.

                Adolph
                Hitler
                Storm Troopers
                SS
                Concentration camps
                Nationalism
                Aryan
                Fatherland
                Fuhrer
                Reich
                Blitz (in any military setting)
                Work will make you free (in German or English)
                Blood and soil (Eng. or German)
                Brownshirts
                Final solution

                I could go on. Using some words like ‘fatherland’ or ‘blood and soil’ could get you questioned by cops in Germany. There’s a whole vocabulary that editors of real newspapers would either disallow or make you justify in any reporting, because real editors know this stuff.

                1. I completely agree with you, @k-bob except for the word Nationalism. I honestly don’t think it belongs on that list. On that point we disagree.

  36. Only in Fredo Corleone’s I mean Cuomo’s mind could America First be equated with Nazi concentration camps. Who’s turning the public schools into indoctrination camps? Who’s completely sold themselves out to the Democratic cause? CNN is the epitome of an unfree and unthinking press. Groupthink runs rampant in Zuckerland. The lack of diversity of opinion at CNN is appalling and why the network is sinking to new lows.

    1. It’s not only in Zuckerland. EVERY left wing spokesperson is guilty
      of groupthink. Their talking points must originate from the same source.
      It has to be more than a coincidence. There is NO diversity of
      thought among them. Someone or some entity has to be giving
      them their daily or weekly plan of attack, they all use the same
      adjectives and phrasings with no variation on the theme.

  37. First, Cuomo is a jackass. Secondly, if Democrats want to talk about concentration camps, then let’s talk about Planned Parenthood and these other medical concentration camps that provide abortion which has killed more children than those holding centers at the border.

  38. What also irritates me beyond the obvious, is that it was the NAZI’s who were the illegal invaders into other, sovereign nations of Europe and who exterminated millions of Jews and others who were the citizens.

    We’re not invading the southern hemisphere and taking people prisoner–THEY are the invaders.

  39. I have been to Dachau camp in Bavaria in the 70’s. It was soul chilling and unforgettable. These leftists who throw these words of concentration camps around so causally know nothing of what they speak. Our BP goes beyond their duty to make sure the illegals are well cared for, purchasing diapers, games and candy for the children. In Dauchau, the guards…well, why ruin your day…

  40. I think of “Chris Cuomo” as a stained term, kind of like “tofurkey.”

    1. “Our job is to control exactly what people think.”
      Mika Brzezinski, MSNBC Morning Joe.

  41. Steve is right……………..Cuomo doesn’t get to define what American nationalism is or any other word for that matter.

  42. The Democrats are running 23 candidates,none of them want to agree with the other 22 candidates thus they give us 23 opinions,not only on the border situation,but on all the important issues.That rally last night by the President shook the rafters at that Arena and the responses by CNN appears to have shook the rafters there also.They are scared to death of this President and what he will do to their causes.

  43. In case these pinheads forgot, people were forcibly taken from their homes, and loaded onto trains like cattle, where they were taken to concentration camps. Few survived.

    They did nothing wrong. They broke no laws. They had absolutely no part in their fate.

    Enough with comparisons!

  44. When someone refers to the term “concentration camp” our minds automatically go to the Holocaust”. ESPECIALLY when the “Never again” words are used, which is what AOC used. Now she and the left are trying to explain it away. She KNEW what she was saying and so do the rest of them. The difference at our border is that WE are not MAKING them come here in numbers to huge to manage properly. They are coming here ON THEIR OWN, knowing that they will have to be processed somehow. At the same time, the D-bags refuse to help with funding in any way to improve the situation. WHY? Because they just want as many in here as possible with no process whatsoever. That is the bottom line.

    1. You can’t expect those POS people to responsible for their own actions by coming here. /sarc

    2. Not saying you say it but how is that any different from using the term “Nationalism”?

      Most on this site agree with everything Trump says, one of which is Nationalism, both are indicative of the NAZI party.

      Personally I support consistency, either ignore concentration camp or realize nationalism is hated by the other side.

  45. Cuomo: What movement used the word “nationalism” and it was positive?

    Dinesh actually answered that question and there are many including Gandhi and Nelson Mandala.

    Exactly right! The left does not get to define the terms!

    na·tion·al·ist
    [ˈnaSH(ə)nələst]

    NOUN
    a person who strongly identifies with their own nation and vigorously supports its interests

  46. American’s have been granted “Free Speech” under the First Amendment. Awesome.

    The sad thing about that is we have to suffer asinine morons like Cuomo and his nonsense.

  47. The only thing America has ever had close to a concentration camp were Japanese internment camps, and that was under a Democratic president.

      1. The left and the right are just trying to define what the definition of is, is.

        Both Nationalism and Concentration camps were redefined by Hitler from their original meaning. Both sides tend to use one or the other. No AOC should not call them concentration camps and no freedom loving person should ever use the term Nationalist because of Hitler.

    1. At the time they were called concentration camps.

      We stopped using that term when Hitler also used it, rightfully so.

  48. I personally don’t have a problem with the word “nationalism” Not white nationalism, but plain ol’ nationalism. I associate it with patriotism and I don’t see anything wrong with that. I’m proud of my country, and probably the most proud of the men and women in our military.

    I don’t understand the left and their desire to blame the U.S. first and degrade her as being bad or evil. Am I proud of everything the U.S. has done? No, but name one country in the world that has been perfect since it was founded. IMO we are the greatest country to ever exist, although the left is doing everything in it’s power to change that.

      1. Fascist over Communist any day?

        How about just principles like Constitutional Federal Republic which limits governments and maximizes freedom?

        Nationalism is a fundamental principle of Mussolini’s fascist principle which the NAZI’s took to an abhorrent level. If you read the original Fascist Manifesto it sadly resembles our current government.

        1. Nationalism in an American sense isnt fascism.

          Its putting our nation first and putting our interests first on a world stage.

          1. You can redefine any term you want, mostly they are just justifications for something you know is abhorrent.

            Nationalism is a fundamental principle of Nazism. Try patriotism instead and more aptly what principle you are defending.

              1. Concentration camp and Nationalism were redefined by Hitler either accept both or hate both. . I am calling out hypocrisy that you can like one Hitler concept but hate another, you are picking and choosing the terms Hitlers used / defined.

                Either like both or hate both but you should question if you like either both are fundamental beliefs of Hitler / Nazism, both term redefined by Hitler.

                My personal belief is to use neither to define myself.

                1. So did American use of Concentration camps prior to Hitler.

                  Like I keep saying do not be hypocritical. The left has been fabulous at redefining terms which I hate however history does matter. Either concentration camps is a perfectly fine term and nationalism is fine or both are indicative of Nazism.

                  I will choose not to use either.

                2. Then if you hate redefining terms use the terms that matter. American nationalism means something particular.

                  And it was never part of Nazism. Yall dont have run away from it and try to use patriotism instead because it’s not the same thing as nazism.

          1. Nationalism is a fundamental principle of Nazism and Fascism.

            Yes the 1913 definition of Nationalism is fine, Hitler and the early 20th century progressives changed the definition. They did with concentration camps also. Stop being hypocritical either hate both or love both.

            1. @ozzy Lol, stop telling me what to do. You can’t determine how someone else should define the word. It varies depending on who you ask and what it means to them. What they believe in and what their intentions are are what matters, not what you want to label them as because of a simple word.

              1. I am not telling you what to do, I am telling you that you are wrong.

                People as in the whole country tend to define the words. When you pick one NAZI word as good and one as bad it just reflect upon you, not me.

                I tend to only comment when I disagree with what our side says. There is no way I will ever make a Bernie Sanders supporter change, however when a person on the right says something wrong at least I can make them think.

                Do what you want but when you use terminology like Fascism is about hate and Nationalism is about love of country is pure rhetoric.

                Fascism is what Mussolini defined, Nazism is the extension of that and both fundamentally used the term Nationalism as justification.

                Use it all you want, it just probably misrepresents what you actually believe. If I were you I would use patriotism instead. Because the other term has been defined in history.

                1. Stop being hypocritical either hate both or love both.

                  Nah, that’s not telling me what to do at all.

                  So what if they used nationalism as justification. That doesn’t mean that’s what the word means. It means they abused it.

                  advocacy of or support for the political independence of a particular nation or people.

                  That’s the definition of nationalism. Gee, I don’t see Hitler or Nazi Germany in there anywhere. I am so confused! / sarc

                  Patriotism is also a synonym. Tell me again who is wrong.

                2. I am just telling you are wrong, not what to do. It is fully hypocritical to like one term over the other, both were redefined by the Nazi regime.

                  Yes nationalism is a fundamental belief of the fascist and the NAZI. You can redefine it to justify it all you want that does not change what they believed. I get your picking and choosing the definition you want but history has permanently changed that. Even your definition of Nationalism includes “of a particular nation or people” which breaks down to culture. That is exactly what Nazism did, they defined the people or more accurately the “good culture” ie. their definition of the Arian race / Germanic race. There is no “American” culture and it is the end of our country when that gets defined. We are a free people who choose our own culture. The left fundamentally miss that freedom is our definition not who we are.

                3. @ozzy So you had to repeat yet again what you believe nationalism is. You tell me I’m redefining what nationalism has permanently been defined as, then why haven’t the dictionaries updated themselves?

                  You’re defining your association of nationalism to Nazi Germany. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to protect and maintain our culture or to distinguish it from others. Are you arguing for multiculturalism?

                  So what if the Nazis believed in their culture. That doesn’t have to be tied to race or expansionism, and definitely not fascism.

    1. Fair enough but do you have a problem with concentration camps?

      That is just the term we used to use. Including what we now call internment camps or detention camps.

      I fundamentally disagree with using the term concentration camps which lost their definition after NAZI Germany and so should Nationalism of which both are fundamental principles of the NAZI’s.

      To be honest with all Trump fans it doesn’t matter what you feel about the word nationalist the leftist consider the Nationalist word as the equivalent of Hitler. So the left consider you the equal to the NAZI’s when other terminology like patriot is difficult to use against you.

      I could care less what people think of me however rarely can they show my principles the equivalent to the NAZI’s which is what conservatives are dong to AOC use of a term.

      1. @ozzy I really couldn’t give two shi*s what the left thinks of me or other Trump supporters. My love for this country isn’t tied to any particular leader. Unlike Michelle Obama who hated this country until Obama was elected, I love this country despite the leaders I don’t like.

        I prefer to use “detention centers” and not “concentration camps”. Concentration camps are associated with political imprisonment, forced labor, or even mass execution. The problem with AOC is that she can’t use the excuse that she wasn’t referring to Nazi Germany death camps. She tied it up by saying “never again” which is directly tied to Nazi Germany.

        1. Love of country is fine it is called patriotism.

          Nationalism especially since Nazism is intricately define as the same thing. Nationalism usually is combined with a culture. My country is the best because my culture is the best.

          No kidding you prefer detention camps over concentration camps. Prior to Hitler we only used concentration camps but Hitler redefined that meaning.. Concentration camp initially meant a literal meaning, concentrating all prisoners, all Japanese, all Germans, all Confederate soldiers, or in this case all illegal aliens, etc.

          Hitler redefined that, I am also against it, but I am also against the term nationalism.

          1. @ozzy I really don’t use either phrase but “detention” sounds more like confinement without being tied to a particular purpose. Sort of like a jail. Could be for criminals or illegals, depending on the camp. “Concentration camps” are associated with political persecution or death camps.

            You can tell me your definition of nationalism all you want but it’s not going to make me associate it with Nazi Germany just because you say they own the word or something. What’s important is what people believe it means to them. Do you know of any Trump supporters that are fascist or are Nazis? I didn’t think so.

            1. And concentration camp sounds like what?

              This whole article is about the evil left calling our whatever camps concentration camps. It does have a stigma attached to it which is why they are using it. The same stigma is attached to nationalism whether you like it or not.

              Either accept both, hate both or be a hypocrite. I could care less. I am just pointing out the inconstancy.

              Neither concentration camp nor nationalism is my definition, if I had my choice I would use the 1913 Websters dictionary, neither would make sense in today’s world. Personally I don’t declare words neither do you time language and history do.

              I just hate either left or right picking good or bad, either Nazism terms are bad or they are not. Original meanings or historical meanings after the fact not picking and choosing.

              1. @ozzy I bore of listening to you telling me what is “whether I like it or not”. Goodbye.

                1. @pvg I don’t mind it as long as it rolls on to new points, but he just kept repeating the same point over and over again.

    2. I prefer patriotism over nationalism, and I do see them as different. To me, nationalism is blind loyalty to a leader of a country. If that leader is benign then it’s no big deal, and may even produce some positives. But it can also leave the door open for abuses by the leader, and the people will overlook it and even accept such behavior because of their unconditional loyalty. And of course if the leader is not benign, like Hitler, then (ultra) nationalism can have devastating results. Patriots on the other hand don’t follow their leaders unconditionally. They love their country, but they don’t always love everything their leaders do.

      1. @watchman I view patriotism and nationalism as the same thing. Tying nationalism to a particular leader doesn’t make sense to me unless you’re Michelle Obama. I hate this country….now I love this country….now I hate this country. You either love your country or you don’t, regardless of leader.

        I’m not loyal to any leader. Trump is just a blip on the radar. This COUNTRY first. Screw the POS leaders.

        1. @kong1967 I certainly agree about loving the country and what it stands for no matter what, even if I don’t like the direction it is going. If you don’t love your country you won’t care what happens to it, and that’s not us. Here’s a quote by George Orwell that perhaps sums up the difference between patriotism and nationalism better than I can:

          “Nationalism is not to be confused with patriotism. Both words are normally used in so vague a way that any definition is liable to be challenged, but one must draw a distinction between them, since two different and even opposing ideas are involved. By ‘patriotism’ I mean devotion to a particular place and a particular way of life, which one believes to be the best in the world but has no wish to force on other people. Patriotism is of its nature defensive, both militarily and culturally. Nationalism, on the other hand, is inseparable from the desire for power. The abiding purpose of every nationalist is to secure more power and more prestige, not for himself but for the nation or other unit in which he has chosen to sink his own individuality.” -George Orwell

          1. @watchman Yeah, but I just read two articles that said otherwise….that nationalism is being confused with fascism. So it depends on who you ask.

            I don’t ever refer to myself as a nationalist. I’m a patriot for sure.

  49. America First is just a mostly meaningless platitude with zero historical meaning.

    Concentration camp, internment camp, holding facility, detention camp are all synonyms for the same thing. This is like trying to define what the definition of is, is. We used to call our internment camps concentration camps until we saw the horrors of the NAZI’s. So yes if you want to claim concentration camps as a NAZI thing you need to include Nationalism which also was their policy and a fundamental point of the NAZI’s and the Italian Fascist. If you want to claim love for America patriot would be a better term because it is not associated with the NAZI’s.

    This is just the leftist and the conservatives talking over each other with zero thought on either side.

    I will add both concentration and nationalism are just trigger words that cause the other side to stop listening. I know I ignore most of the crazy comment of AOC, they ignore all Nationalist.

  50. Despite of her flaws, I’m proud of America and want what’s best for the country. If that’s nationalism, so be.
    Secondly, Crowder absolutely nailed it with his reply. “Funny how people from other countries are lining up for our concentration camps.”

    1. Yeah generally we dont have people paying smugglers to cross several countries to get into concentration camps. Lmao

    2. Pride of country is a great thing. Pride of principles better. Nationalism is a fundamental part of fascism.

      Nationalism has irrevocably been linked with Fascism then on to the NAZI interpretation of that.

      Nobody is lining up to be incarcerated. They are either breaking in illegally or claiming asylum knowing they will be detained for a limited time.

      I get the cutsie joke but that is not reality.

  51. They hate the MAGA movement but they never say what they want. Wouldn’t it be interesting to hear these leftists actually say what they want America to be?

  52. Considering how colossally embarrassing CNN’s TV ratings are not many people saw this segment. It’s another essay on the extreme measures that CNN’s marxist propaganda ministers will take to push their lies and false narratives..

  53. Crowder got it right, I never saw anyone volunteering to go to concentration camps.

    Cuomo, AOC, Dems need to learn some history before speaking in public, but they don’t. In the words of AOC, “facts don’t matter when you are morally right.” That’s why her statements are absurd and should be condemned by all, but the Dems won’t do it.

    Anyone notice how the Media and the Democrats all grabbed on to this phrase of “concentration camps” together at the same time? This is a good example of collusion. Tell me the media is not in bed with the Democrat party.

    1. “Concentration Camps” is the phrase of the week.

      Remember these greatest hits:
      Gravitas
      Optics
      Collusion
      Mentally unfit for office
      anything -gate
      etc and so on…..

    2. I don’t think a single illegal is volunteering, they are either arrested or expect to be temporarily detained which is exactly what is happening most of the time.

      Each and every holding camps for any length of time used to be defined as concentration camps until the horrors of the NAZI’s. People who associate them with Hitler are correct and I hate to say so are the people who associate Nationalism to Hitler are also correct on how abhorrent the idea is.

      Trump fans want to use one while they detest the other.

      1. Here’s a thought….. leave the southern facing entrance to the “concentration camp” open……see how many illegals leave

        1. All will leave then go north, I am not justifying illegals I am just pointing out we use terminology that the left find as abhorrent as saying our detention camps are the equivalent to the death camps of hitler.

          1. Wake up!! This terminology was STARTED by the left to justify their position of open borders. This is all to get votes for permanent lib rule.

            1. Then why is it only the right complaining about concentration camps?

              I do have a fundamental problem with redefining terms but we should not use a term like Nationalism and then get mad at concentration camp.

              Either thank them for using the term concentration camp because we are concentrating illegals or stop using nationalism, both terms were basically redefined by Nazi’s.

              1. “Nationalism: is an ideology and movement characterized by the promotion of the interests of a particular nation, especially with the aim of gaining and maintaining the nation’s sovereignty (self-governance) over its homeland.”
                Lighten up!!

              2. No thanks. I will continue using any terms I please and you can continue being infuriatingly obtuse.
                I’m done!!

      2. Come on @ozzy they know this rhetoric is a bunch of lies and they wont be mistreated like the Nazis did. That is why they still come here.

        1. I do know both terms Nationalism and Concentration camps are just rhetoric. The problem I have is Conservatives are getting all riled up a term now associated with Hitler while using another term Nationalism which is also associate with Hitler, Nationalism is a fundamental part of Fascism which we all hate.

          I am just pointing out consistency, if concentration camps is bad so is nationalism both are defined by history.

          No I don’t think our detention camps are a bad thing, inhumane or the equivalent to Hitler’s death camps. The left probably do think most conservatives are Nationalist equivalents. We just lose the argument when we praise Nationalism.

          1. There has always been a difference with American nationalism because it is based on an idea of America first and our interests first.

            1. How is that a different statement than the Germans?

              I believe in the American experiment / philosophy of freedom but that is not nationalism probably the opposite. I believe in the principle not the nation. Technically our founders were traitors to the crown, a good thing.

              1. “How is that a different statement than the Germans?”
                Judeo Christian beliefs. We are NOT fascist! Sheesh….

  54. Every time I see Angela Rye with her resting b*tch face, I laugh. If Jesse and Al are the poverty pimps of old, people like Rye and Stacy (Michael Strahan) Abrahams are the new breed.

  55. Steve Cortes: “You don’t get to define what nationalism means”

    Cuomo: “Yes I do”

    There lies the idiocy. Who is Cuomo to define what a word means. Who is he to negate what I think the word means, Joe down the street thinks it means, or a Martian visitor? I’ll go by a dictionary to determine the definition of a word and not some a crazy angry person who changes his mind and ideas more than his underwear.

    1. Elitism at its pinnacle! Cuomo is a pointy-headed dunce, so self absorbed in his ideological bubble he has no idea what is really going on in this country.

    2. If Cuomo hadn’t thought he won the argument with that gem he was going to pull out the established debate winner, “I’m rubber and your glue. What you say bounces off me and sticks to you.”

      Not enough intellect to fill a thimble.

  56. The Democrats are running 23 candidates,none of them want to agree with the other 22 candidates thus they give us 23 opinions,not only on the border situation,but on all the important issues.That rally last night by the President shook the rafters at that Arena and the responses by CNN appears to have shook the rafters there also.They are scared to death of this President and what he will do to their causes.
