AOC and other progressives have a new goal: Silence the press

AOC and other progressives have a new goal: Silence the press. By David Harsanyi.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been a wellspring of truly terrible ideas for years, but her new one might be her worst one yet: A Ministry of Truth.

During a live stream on her Instagram page, Ocasio-Cortez was asked by a viewer if, to help with national healing, there were congressional plans to institute any “truth and reconciliation or media literacy initiatives.”

The socialist congresswoman replied that, yes, indeed, she and some of her colleagues have been exploring media literacy initiatives to help “rein in” the press and combat misinformation after last week’s riot at the U.S. Capitol.

“It’s one thing to have differentiating opinions but it’s another thing entirely to just say things that are false,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “So that’s something that we’re looking into.”

The US Congress as the arbiter of truth. Can’t wait. We could rename it the US Oracle. Senators could be known as Truth Tellers. Politicians lie? Not any more buddy.
