AOC is calling this communist takeover of speech a “media literacy initiative.” She wants the Democrat-controlled Congress to determine what the people of the United States are allowed to speak, to hear, to watch and to think. She wants to mandate a congressional “truth and reconciliation committee” to push this “media literacy initiative.” This congressional "Ministry of Truth" would target all publishers who “spread misinformation” -- just as Big Tech is currently doing. Once the threat is identified, the government can then target the source and eradicate the message.
AOC wants to blacklist her critics and publicly humiliate anyone who disagrees with her hateful, destructive message of communism. She wants the power to deconstruct and demonetize the platforms that conservatives and independents rely upon to get their message out to the public. She wants absolute power to shame the sponsors, payment processors, and funding sources that her political opponents rely on, so she can strip them of their infrastructure and ability to speak up and speak out.
With Democrats in control of Big Tech, the Senate, House, and Executive branch, AOC feels as if this is her moment to shine, to be the leading voice for censorship and oppression. The desperate second impeachment of Donald Trump, (waged by power-drunk democrats and a handful of boot-licking republicans) did not follow any form of probable cause or due process. That’s because this impeachment proceeding was not about the rule of law; it was conducted to establish new precedent to empower the authoritarian Left’s war against the American people and their principles. If Trump’s speech can be blamed for inciting insurrection, then anything the Left disagrees with can, not only be censured, but also be used to convict conservatives of crimes that they did not commit. The 1984 Thought Police are here. (Related: Democrats are now moving quickly to reclassify conservative dissent as “domestic terrorism.”)
In a recent interview, AOC lamented being “scared for her life” following the Capitol breach. Because of this, she believes anyone who speaks against election fraud and democrat's policies should be silenced. “I do think that several members of Congress, in some of my discussions, have brought up media literacy because that is a part of what happened here and we’re going to have to figure out how we rein in our media environment so that you can’t just spew disinformation and misinformation," Ocasio-Cortez said.
Joe Conch, a media columnist for The Hill was quick to rebuke the proposal. "Let’s unpack this proposal. She wants to basically establish a Ministry of Truth. We’ve all read ‘1984’ and, you know, to determine what is truth and what is not,” he said. “So, who sits on this committee exactly? Eric Swalwell? Adam Schiff? Because they seem to have some challenges when it comes to telling the truth.”
David Harsanyi, was quick to call out AOC on her wicked proposal. He wrote a New York Post opinion piece headlined, "AOC and other progressives have a new goal: Silence the press." Media moguls across the political spectrum are starting to sound like NaturalNews did, four years ago, when the network was censored off social media channels for “spreading misinformation.” NaturalNews has survived years of censorship and gone on to warn America about the unchecked power and evils of the authoritarian Left.
