Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a vendetta against Tucker Carlson.
Now she’s pulling out the big guns.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just gave Joe Biden one ultimatum about Tucker Carlson.
Tucker Carlson is the biggest star in all of conservative media.
And even though Fox News stunned viewers by firing Carlson this week, the left will not relent on their desire to silence all political opposition.
On former White House press secretary Jen Psaki’s Sunday MSNBC show, Ocasio-Cortez outlined a Stalinist demand for Joe Biden to leverage the full power of the federal government to censor conservative media.
Ocasio-Cortez began the conversation by agreeing with Psaki’s outrage that Dominion Voting System did not force Fox News to apologize as part of the network’s $787 million settlement with the company.
“This was a corporation suing another corporation for material damages. Their job is to go in and get the most money that they can. I think that they did that. They are not lawyers for the American public. I think what is best for the country, what would have been best for the country, would have been to demand that and not settle until we got that, but that is not their role,” Ocasio-Cortez stated.
Ocasio-Cortez then used the settlement as a jumping off point to claim conservative media represented an attack on democracy that culminated on January 6.
“We have very real issues with what is permissible on air. We saw that with January 6, and we saw that in the lead-up to January 6. How we navigate questions, not just of freedom of speech but also accountability for incitement of violence, this is the line that we have to really explore through law,” Ocasio-Cortez added.
Ocasio-Cortez is the forefront of a movement on the left to categorize all speech liberals do not like as “violence.”
There’s a very simple reason for this.
The Supreme Court has long held that speech which insights violence is not protected under the First Amendment.
If Democrats continually brand conservative political views as violence, then naturally, it sets the predicate for the government to censor conservative media.
And that’s exactly where Ocasio-Cortez went – saying the Biden administration needed to regulate the content Fox News puts on the air as she believes only networks that work in service of the Democrat Party’s political agenda deserve protection under the First Amendment.
“I believe that when it comes to broadcast television, like Fox News, these are subject to federal law, federal regulation in terms of what’s allowed on air and what isn’t. When you look at what Tucker Carlson and some of these others folks on Fox do, it is very, very clearly incitement of violence, very clearly incitement of violence. That is the line that I think we have to be willing to contend with,” Ocasio-Cortez stated.
