AOC Encourages Followers to Report Accounts Fact-Checking Her

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

In a tweet early this morning, Jack Posobiec posted a screenshot of an email AOC (whoops, I mean the most honorable, delightful, royal highness, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez) sent out to her constituents asking them to report people for fact-checking her.

In the email she said, “Facebook and Twitter both have built-in tools for reporting posts and tweets that break the rules.” She said that her followers ought to report any account using ‘the trending hashtag’ and any ‘threatening or harassing’ content.

This is funny timing-wise, considering AOC said in January 2019 that ‘being morally right’ is more important than being ‘precisely, factually, and semantically correct’.

Way to go to her royal highness AOC! Keep on encouraging the takedown of information you dislike! You’ll get closer and closer to your socialist utopia by doing so.
