She is a sitting member of Congress, who literally swore an oath to defend the Constitution, and THIS is what AOC is putting on her to-do list? Disgraceful.
Since her party ran the table in the election (leaving aside the reasons we may think they were able to do so), there isn’t a whole lot standing in the way of even their STUPIDEST flights of fancy… except public outrage, shaming, and being told in no uncertain terms that the courts would absolutely rip it to ribbons.
(There is some good news with all those court appointments.)
Here’s what’s bubbling in that fevered, partisan little mind of hers.
During a lengthy Instagram Live on Tuesday evening where she revealed that she feared for her life during the siege, the “Squad” member accused the mainstream media of “spewing disinformation” ahead of the deadly riot in which five people died.
“There’s absolutely a commission that’s being discussed but it seems to be more investigating in style rather than truth and reconciliation,” she said.
“I do think that several members of Congress in some of my discussions have brought up media literacy because that is part of what happened here,” Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) went on.
“We’re going to have to figure out how we rein in our media environment so you can’t just spew disinformation and misinformation,” she said.
“It’s one thing to have differentiating opinions, but it’s another thing entirely to just say things that are false, so that’s something that we’re looking into.” –NYPost
Her natural instincts tilt to tyranny and she’s completely oblivious to it.
Sure it’s a bad idea, everyone but an elected Democrat can see it but that hasn’t stopped any one before. Public humiliation, on the other hand, HAS stopped them.
Having the idea held in such contempt that nobody DARES agree with it in public is still a move we have left on the board here.
Memes taught us that taking bad ideas and turning them into a laughingstock is an effective way to shift the needle. (This is why the left worked so hard to shoot down meme-makers, by the way.)
If we’re going to make fun of AOC’s brainfart, we will have to give it a name.
Should we borrow imagery from Russian propaganda and go with a name like Pelosi-Pravda?
Or should we emphasize the Orwellian theme with a ‘Ministry of Truth’ (Ministry of AOC…?) moniker?
Maybe you have another favorite you’d like to throw in the ring. Let us know in the comments!
If this chica wants to become a ‘strong female leader’ she needs to get herself some better role models. She could start here.
In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
