Fox News Contributor Compares Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Nazi Germany over 'Trump Sycophants' List

Fox News contributor Joe Concha likened recent comments made by Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Nazi Germany—and called on President-elect Joe Biden to denounce her.

"The bottom line is with Joe Biden, he talked about unity in his speech, and it was a nice speech, but then he has to follow that with actions," Concha, a media reporter for The Hill, said during an appearance on Fox & Friends.

Concha said Biden needed to start by "calling out" members of the Democratic Party and singled out Ocasio-Cortez, who won a second term in the House.

Concha referenced a tweet posted by the congresswoman on Friday, where she predicted that "Trump sycophants" would delete evidence of their affiliation with the president in order to "downplay or deny their complicity" after he leaves office.

"Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?" Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. "I foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future."

Concha went as far as to suggest that Ocasio-Cortez's tweet was as heinous as the practices of Adolf Hitler's regime, which persecuted Jews and other groups of people and infamously compiled lists of enemies of the state.

"When Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, for instance, starts putting out tweets about compiling lists around who supported this president, I remember a country back in the 1930s that also tried the whole list thing... oh yeah, that's right, it was the Third Reich," Concha said.

"Until [Biden] starts calling out members of his own party, and says this needs to stop if we're going to bring the whole country together, those 71 million people aren't going to believe a damn thing around unity if we keep hearing lawmakers speak in those terms."

Concha's comments on Monday were posted on Twitter by Bobby Lewis, who live-tweets Fox & Friends. The clip has already amassed more than 10,000 views.

It came after Biden, in his first address after he was elected president on Saturday, said he would seek to unify the nation and promised to govern on behalf of all Americans.

"For all those of you who voted for President Trump, I understand the disappointment tonight. I've lost a couple of times myself. But now, let's give each other a chance," Biden said.

"It's time to put away the harsh rhetoric, lower the temperature, see each other again, listen to each other again. And to make progress we have to stop treating our opponents as our enemies."

Ocasio-Cortez and the Biden-Harris transition have been contacted for comment.
