Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Some People Shouldn’t Have Free Speech


Well, it’s time yet again to ponder the latest dumb thing out of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s dumb mouth. Yes, it’s been a week already.

Just as we were preparing to praise the New York congresswoman for actually getting on board with a decent idea – the plan to bar former lawmakers from every becoming Washington D.C. lobbyists, which she is apparently considering working on with Sen. Ted Cruz, of all people – she managed to raise our ire once again with this ludicrous screed against the First Amendment. And while we wouldn’t mind seeing AOC and Cruz tackle some of the swamp’s swampiest aspects, that problem pales in comparison to the left’s increasing desire to limit our most foundational freedom.

“What people don’t (maybe do) realize is when orgs air these hateful messages, my life changes bc of the flood of death threats they inspire,” AOC tweeted on Tuesday. “I‘ve had mornings where I wake up & the 1st thing I do w/ my coffee is review photos of the men (it’s always men) who want to kill me.

“I don’t even get to see all of them. Just the ones that have been flagged as particularly troubling,” she continued. “It happens whenever Fox gets particularly aggressive + hateful, too. Young interns have to constantly hear hateful messages (far beyond disagreement) from ppl we don’t even rep.

“All of this is to say that words matter, and can have consequences for safety,” she concluded. “For those who believe in ‘free speech’: whose free speech do you believe in? Bc some folks using free speech to defend racism are also supporting folks passing laws to allow running over protesters.”

Hoo boy. There’s a lot to address here, but there’s really no need to get into the particulars. Death threats are already illegal. Calls to violence are illegal. The “free speech” that Ocasio-Cortez is (theoretically) speaking out against is already against the law. So there’s that.

She knows this. Presumably.

So we have to assume that what she’s actually addressing are not the death threats she’s gotten from crazed individuals, but rather this part: “It happens whenever Fox gets particularly aggressive + hateful, too.”

Hmm, how many death threats do you think Donald Trump got last week? How many has Kellyanne Conway gotten since the start of this administration? What about Sarah Sanders? You think anyone has ever vowed to kill her in a poorly-typed email?

AOC’s question – “Whose free speech do you believe in?” – is exactly the question our Founders sought to eliminate. Because the answer, at the end of the day, is “Everyone’s.”

That’s the only way it can be and still remain “free.”

What do you think?

    • I am a conservative and I would never advocate anyone to kill someone or do so myself. That said I would just like to send you back to school to learn some common sense and maybe get you a perscription to something that would help improve your intelligence. Just curious how did you ever remember how to mix drinks when you were a bar tender? Or is that the reason you quit and got into politics? I guess you figured you didn’t really need a brain to be a politician (which is mostly true)

      • Good job, hit the nail right on the head. Just because you go to some high priced fancy college does not make you any smarter….just poorer

  2. that idiot makes me puke. Did you notice in her childish banter the overt sexism? Also, if the moron says some people should not have free speech then the presumes a decision must be made and of course, like the death squads in Obama care, it with be the uber liberals who make that decision….silence any opposition.
    This democrat party is the party of death, destruction, license, and murder.

  3. Spoken like a true Socialist. “BAN FREE SPEECH!” Even liberals will condone free speech once in a while even though they don’t agree with it. But Socialist, never.

    • How is calling the free press the “Enemy Of The People”… not a form of suppression? If you can’t legally ban it, then compromise it to a shrinking populous of sheeple who don’t bother to discern fiction from fact. You need to listen to any of the news networks to know what a pathological liar and fraud Donald Trump is. You just need a semi-rational, functioning brain.

      • You are seriously stupid. CNN and MSNBC are the enemy of the people nothing but liars. I can see you’re a pos Obama supporter, now there’s a pathological liar and criminal. You liberals supported that pos when he and Hillary the disgusting slob, left our men to die in Benghazi. President Trump is taking his “magic wand” and fixing everything that pos Obama ruined he should be in prison along with most democrats.

      • Hey dumb shit, the president never called the press ” the enemy of the state”. He called ” fake news” the enemy of the state”. Get it right if you want to criticize.
        Trump 2020.

      • Not only are you incapable of constructing a coherent sentence, but, like any true libtard, you spew hatred and division without a single FACT to support you argument.

      • WOW!!!!! All the media does is spread lies falsehoods and deceive the public. The media is constantly publishing negative press for the president. They don’t like him and they take every chance to spew hate and garbage. He has NOT stopped the press from reporting he has however called them out on some of their lies. And AOC needs to read the Constitution and take a civics class.

      • Please read “Unfreedom of the Press” by Mark Levin. It will hopefully open your eyes as to whom is the enemy of the people.

        • The above reply was to Bdog, but I would encourage everyone (yeah, even you loony libbies) to read “Unfreedom of the Press” by Mark Levin. He tells the history of journalism and where and how it changed into the Enemy of the People.

    • I hate the insinuation of the article when it says she “presumably already knows it” nuance. Just because she went to Boston University, and graduated with a degree(apparently “cum laude” or “with honors”)in Economics, and the totally important Foreign Studies, she has “presumably” accrued this knowledge of what is “legal” and “illegal”…No, no she hasn’t from all we can tell, read about, and listen to…”Free” Speech is what gives HER the right to spew hateful remarks about others, but is forbidden when they spew hateful remarks to/about her…She advocates dissent, she supports discord, and she espouses the very reason that “some” should NOT have “Free” Speech, but obviously he never looks in the mirror when she talks.

      Furthermore, I hate it when people say “this intelligent woman” when everything she says, does, and supports contramands that assertion…An education does not automatically make you smart, because if it did, the Liberal/Democrat Party would have ceased to exist in the Administration of Kennedy/LBJ…NO ONE with any intelligence, much less a “formally educated” one could advocate for ANYTHING that the Liberal/Democrats do…JMO

  4. AOC should not even be in America, or have any freedom. She wishes to destroy everyone’s Freedom except hers!

  5. She is living proof that some people should be muzzled to keep her mouth shut. If it were true to stop people from FREE SPEECH BY THE 1ST AMENDMENT, THEN SHE WILL BE THE FIRST ON THE LIST.

    • You are absolutely right! And her “death threats” is a creation of her sick and stupid imagination.
      True, most people don’t like AOC and for many good reasons. But i have yet to meet and IDIOT who would be ready to risk his life threatening to kill her. She is PARANOID and should seek medical help!

  6. In the list of those who should be banned from “free Speech” please include your name first! Add to that all your socialist “fiends”. ( I wonder if this retort will be printed!”

  7. Funny, I don’t see the quote where AOC actually said, “Some People Shouldn’t Have Free Speech”…. It seems, she did suggest that entities that purport to be a legitimate ‘News’ organization, should have a responsibility to ‘REPORT’ news and not be an inciting propaganda wing of the White House or any specific political wing. To call them out for spreading division, fear and hatred, not to mention obscene levels of misinformation and lies… is an appeal for them to join the ranks of civility and reasonable discourse. Then again, if their goal aligns with that of Vladimir Putin… to inflict, disrupt and cause harm to so-called American institutions of democracy, then they are succeeding wildly.

    • How do you, smart-ass, know what Vladimir Putin’s goals are? Your BS really stinks as much as your pretentious language. What AOC wants is her voice is the ONLY ONE that is being heard and all others voices that are not with agreement with her are silenced.
      You want the same thing. Fine, then move to North Korea! They will be happy to have people like you – brain-dead meat.

    • You are most definitely a blind man (or woman, as the case may be) and an ignorant one as well. All of you democrats flatly IGNORE the plain and very simple fact that this “division, fear and hatred, and obscene levels of misinformation and lies began in earnest with Barack Hussein Obama! He and Michelle inflicted more damage on race relations in this country than the KKK ever dreamed about! The lies come from your side of the fence, pal, way more than the other. Yet you continue to listen to the perpetrators of those lies as if they are magically immune from discovery! The only hate speech I have ever heard during this administration has come directly from democrats and their cheerleaders, the media. Every single day we are bombarded with hate for everybody Trump. Do you honestly believe it is doing America any good at all? You have to be insane to think so. There are many many many of you people out there who absolutely REFUSE to think for yourselves because it may cause you to have to change your ever-loosening grip on reality. I am absolutely confounded by all of the ignorance and intolerance on the democrat/liberal side of the fence. None of it makes any sense when applied to making a better country for us all. The founding fathers had this right all along, and as time goes on and people get dumber by the generation, they think they know a better way to do things so they whine and cry and whine and cry until some bleeding heart liberal idiot says OK, you can have your way. It’s your “right” to be happy. Happiness is not and has never been a “right”……it is an obligation. It is an emotion. It isn’t something that can be legislated no matter how hard you try. But I digress. The point of all of this is that common sense is all but gone in our society now thanks solely to the liberal mindset. And people like you prove it every day.

  8. The only problem is that with free speech (like our other freedoms) comes the responsibility of using it correctly. AOC can say whatever she wants but others can call her out on her stupidity. What “free speech” is she really against? We have laws against libel and slander and rightly so. But where does the limits on free speech go? I think she might place them a little bit closer to anything I don’t like rather than slander, death threats and that sort of nonsense.

  9. I think that AOC needs a lot of education. It is obvious to many that her college degree in “economics” afforded her only ONE JOB and that is a BARTENDER! She never did anything in her life but waiting on clients at a bar, and even that bar went completely bankrupt.
    So here is my take: free speech…..let AOC just shut up till she gets another degree and a decent real job, not in public service. We need educated and intelligent people to serve our public and not bartenders.

    • Exactly, how does this boob get elected in the first place? Her constituents must be real winners but given she is from NY City it’s no real surprise. After all they are most likely the same dummies that elected their ridiculous mayor.

  10. I’ve had it with AOC or whatever she calls herself. She should be impeached. Maybe even be run out of town on a rail! Whatever it takes, just get rid of her!

  11. Trump calls (and rightfully so) the media an enemy of the people because they are not reporting the whole truth – just whatever they can to paint his administration in a negative light – all the time. And they neglected to report any of the ethical or potentially criminal crimes of the Obama administration and the Clinton campaign. Their extreme bias is a threat to the ignorant who believe everything the lame stream media tell them without questioning the reality.

  12. She ( A.O.C ) is a home grown terrorist and should be dealt with accordingly. She is also the biggest IDIOT ever, put into any part of The United States Government. She should be removed and anyone like her should be banned from ever getting elected into any office ever again.

  13. AOC is a degenerate anarchistic,anti-American who has violated her oath of office to uphold the constitution.

  14. When a person decides to run for office, they know that there will be those who strongly disagree with them and might even make threats. It’s part of politics! If you don’t like it… then either start saying things that are logical and principled or get out! Preferably the latter!

  15. I mean if it were anyone else that would of said it….it may not have been as funny. She is just priceless. Will she be the first to be speech regulated for shear stupidity alone.
    I actually have put my children on notice about this woman….In politics she is uneducated and her ideas are unfathomable. She simply should not be anywhere near Washington DC so voting for her ever is in no way going to help there freedoms or anyone elses trying to live a life.

  16. Hey dumb shit, the president never called the press ” the enemy of the state”. He called ” fake news” the enemy of the state”. Get it right if you want to criticize.
    Trump 2020.

  17. Perhaps she’s right. That’s particularly true if she agrees that she shouldbe the first one to be placed on the no speech list.

  18. Bdog as an intelligent discerning individual maybe you can connect these dots.
    June 2010 Bill Clinton goes to Russia makes a $500,000 speech, also meets with Vladimir Putin at his home. Prior to his visit he had asked the State Department (read Hillary) if they had any problems with him meeting for a business discussion with Russia’s state owned energy company Rosatam. October 2010, 20% of the United States’ uranium is sold to Uranium One, the North American arm of Rosatam and millions of dollars flow into the Clinton Foundation from people with business ties to Uranium One.

  19. I had a friend that use to tell me …Ignorance is rampant. He was correct. I have never read, listened to, or encountered anyone more ignorant, low IQ, and terminally stupid than the person, AOC. Each day it seems she proves over and over to the general public that she has the brains of a twelve, nay ten year old. Ignore her please so we do not have to look at her, or read about her latest stupid rant.

  20. Representation is what it is all about. Given the agreement concerning lobbying and lobbyists in government, it is about the purity of representation and the legitimacy of influence—a factor which, apparently, came into play and consideration regarding Russian influence and interference in the election of 2016. How we, exclusively and exclusionarily, define and delineate our governmental entities should determine the criteria we use to allow or present influence, investment and input in the political process, the purpose of which is to represent the interests of the citizen-residents within those delineated governmental entities, villages, towns, cities, counties, congressional districts and states. The economic interests are of secondary importance to quality-of-life (environmental issues) factors which must be regulated to maintain them.

  21. Easy I know a couple of people who have shit for brains and they’d be insulted being compared to this AOC idiot. She wasn’t a bartender she was the skank working the tables.
    SEMPER FI
