AOC’s Comms Director Asks Twitter To Ban Users From Citing AOC’s Support For Violent Riots
- Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s communications director asked Twitter to bar users from sharing one of the New York congresswoman’s previous tweets in support of protests.
- AOC posted the Twitter thread in question just a month before a mob stormed the Capitol on Wednesday, claiming that “protest demands that make others uncomfortable” are “the point.”
- Despite the communications director’s insistence that the tweet was taken out of context by “right-wing accounts”.
- AOC has a track record of backing destructive rioting in support of progressive causes as she sees fit.
- In August, the “Squad” member told a New York radio station that some groups, including marginalized communities, have “no choice but to riot” against injustices.
- AOC also delayed condemning an Antifa attack on an Immigration.
- Hours after word of her silence on the issue spread, Ocasio-Cortez told the Daily Caller that “any act of violence is of course terrible.”
