Fox News employee Joe Concha compared the recent statements of Democratic Member of Parliament Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with Nazi Germany – and called on President-elect Joe Biden to denounce them.
“The bottom line is with Joe Biden, he talked about unity in his speech, and it was a beautiful speech, but then he has to follow it up with action,” said Concha, a media reporter for The Hill, during a performance at Fox & Friends.
Concha said Biden must begin by “calling out” members of the Democratic Party, and highlighted Ocasio-Cortez, who won a second term in Parliament.
Concha referred to a tweet posted by the Congresswoman on Friday in which she predicted that “Trump secophants” would delete evidence of their affiliation with the President after the President left office in order to “play down or deny their complicity”.

“Does anyone archive these trump sniffers in case they try to play down or deny their complicity in the future? Ocasio-Cortez twittered. “I see a reasonable chance that many tweets, fonts and photos will be deleted in the future.
Concha even went so far as to claim that Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet was just as heinous as the practices of the Adolf Hitler regime, which persecuted Jews and other groups of people and in an infamous manner compiled lists of enemies of the state.
“For example, when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez starts tweeting about who supported this president, I remember a country in the 1930s that also tried the whole list thing… oh yes, that’s right, it was the Third Reich,” Concha said.
“As long as [Biden] doesn’t start calling members of his own party and say that this has to stop if we want to bring the whole country together, those 71 million people won’t think much of unity if we keep hearing legislators speak in those terms.
Is someone archiving these trump sniffers in case they try to play down or deny their complicity in the future? I see a reasonable probability that many tweets, fonts and photos will be deleted in the future.

Concha’s comments on Monday were posted on Twitter by Bobby Lewis, who tweets Fox & Friends live. The clip has already been viewed more than 10,000 times.
It came after Biden said in his first post presidential address on Saturday that he would work to unite the nation and promised to govern on behalf of all Americans.
“For those of you who voted for President Trump, I understand the disappointment tonight. I’ve lost a few times myself. But now we should give each other a chance,” said Biden.
“It’s time to put aside the harsh rhetoric, lower the temperature, see each other again, listen to each other again. And to make progress, we must stop treating our opponents as our enemies.
