AOC declined a tour invitation from Jonny Daniels, founder of From the Depths, A Holocaust commemoration group. Holocaust survivor Edward Mosberg would go along with her for the tour.
.@AOC I went to Auschwitz & Birkenau with Eddie Mausberg & Jonny Daniels with In the Depths. I went with a deep understanding of the Shoah and had a profound personal experience. Please accept their offer. https://t.co/9tjqgdP6N5

Here is her declining
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

A Holocaust commemoration group on Friday invited Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) to tour the Nazi death camp Auschwitz with a 93-year-old survivor.
Jonny Daniels, the founder of From the Depths, wrote the open invitation to the progressive freshman asking her to participate in the educational tour during her summer recess from Congress.
From the Depths president Edward Mosberg, a Holocaust survivor, would travel with her for the tour, which includes visits to the Auschwitz-Birkenau, Mauthausen and Majdanek concentration camps.
More than 20 members of Congress from both political parties have participated on the tour that is specifically designed for legislators, according to the group.
“The opportunity you will have of visiting the German Nazi Concentration Camps along with Mr. Mosberg, a 93 year old survivor of history’s most brutal genocidal regime, will enable you to become a witness of a witness, something that our generation will sadly be the last to do, as result of the fact that the survivors are passing away at an ever increasing rate,” Daniels wrote in the invitation.
Notice what Alexandria Ocasio-Cortex did here. She attacked Steve King as a way to lessen the blow of declining the invite. More than 20 members of Congress on both sides have done this and she should as well. Steve King has nothing to do with this request but she knows it is a bad look declining this invite.
As usual, when a Democrat is asked to turn there virtual signaling into action they kindly deflect and decline.
