AOC Admits Dems Are Working To Censor The Media
Talk about division. AOC and some of her colleagues are looking into censoring the media that they feel is lying to the public. She might as well just come out and say that she wants to silence conservatives. She is another Dem drinking deeply from the MSM's Koolaid. The MSM covered up the Hunter Biden Scandal and even right now they are helping the Dems push this bogus claim that Trump incited the U.S. Capitol Building Raid. During an Instagram Livestream, AOC admitted that she intended to censor the press.
"During a live stream on her Instagram page, Ocasio-Cortez was asked by a viewer if, to help with national healing, there were congressional plans to institute any “truth and reconciliation or media literacy initiatives.”
The socialist congresswoman replied that, yes, indeed, she and some of her colleagues have been exploring media literacy initiatives to help “rein in” the press and combat misinformation after last week’s riot at the U.S. Capitol.
“It’s one thing to have differentiating opinions but it’s another thing entirely to just say things that are false,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “So that’s something that we’re looking into.”
"For those unaware, the “truth and reconciliation commission” the AOC fan asked about was most famously used in South Africa after the fall of apartheid as means of “restorative justice.” The insinuation by those who use this phrase, is that 74 million Americans who voted for the Republican presidential candidate are racist thugs in need for similar programs. It’s a disguising smear, and speaks to the dangerous and illiberal inclination of progressives.
As for AOC’s ideas: It’s just creepy, not to mention wholly un-American, for an elected official to advocate the state as adjudicator of veracity of our political speech.
It’s also crassly hypocritical. If anyone could use a truth commission, it’s Congress."
What is she thinking here? She is literally talking about silencing any news that she doesn't agree with while she likely wants to let news stations like CNN and MSNBC go unhindered when they have the most biased warped version of the news out there. This is how you get State-run news like Iran where they cover up the stories and atrocities that they don't want the public to hear about. This is a clear attack on the freedom of speech and the free press. The media should be up in arms about it but seeing as most are anti-conservative they think that this will get rid of competition.
