‘Woke’ congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortex (D-NY), known to her cult following as “AOC,” is leading a partisan call to shut down conservative viewpoints on radio and television.
In an interview with former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on MSNBC, the socialist ideologue called for speech restrictions on conservative news hosts like Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says there needs to be more regulation of conservative news because "when you look at what Tucker Carlson and some of these other folks on Fox do, it is very, very clearly incitement of violence. Very clearly." pic.twitter.com/HSI5fxUDTP

“When you look at what Tucker Carlson and some of these other folks on Fox do, it is very, very clearly incitement of violence, very clearly incitement of violence,” she claimed without evidence. “And that is the line that I think we have to be willing to contend with.”
She also peddled a baseless conspiracy theory that House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) isn’t actually running his caucus.
AOC ironically recently accused Republicans of “fascism” after the expulsion of two state Democrat lawmakers who disrupted the Tennessee House proceedings.
Republicans may think they won today in Tennessee, but their fascism is only further radicalizing and awakening an earthquake of young people, both in the South and across the nation.
If you thought youth organizing was strong, just wait for what’s coming. Gen Z don’t play https://t.co/gPwoFI7uib

“Republicans may think they won today in Tennessee, but their fascism is only further radicalizing and awakening an earthquake of young people, both in the South and across the nation,” she claimed. “If you thought youth organizing was strong, just wait for what’s coming. Gen Z don’t play.”
Justin Jones, one member of the “Tennessee Three” who was expelled, was later reinstated despite the Republicans holding a supermajority.
As I pointed out on Twitter, AOC has a history of making inflammatory statements amid left-wing rioting.
Also AOC, after dozens killed and billions of damages due to BLM/Antifa riots 👇https://t.co/6mNKqBDZ6A

“The whole point of protesting is to make ppl uncomfortable,” she tweeted. “Activists take that discomfort w/ the status quo & advocate for concrete policy changes. Popular support often starts small & grows. To folks who complain protest demands make others uncomfortable… that’s the point.”
The Black Lives Matter/Antifa protests that followed in the wake of George Floyd’s controversial death fueled rioting that killed dozens of people and incurred approximately two billion in damages. This is a thousand times the damage that is estimated to have been done during the Capitol Riots on January 6.
But if the fascist speech police had their way, the American people would not be allowed to hear that on television networks. It would only be MSNBC-style left-wing propaganda 24/7, so that everyone can live in a socialist propaganda bubble.
It is un-American for a sitting congresswoman to make such partisan arguments. The radical left has become a threat to the freedom of the press and free speech rights that have made his nation truly democratic.
