Anti-Free Speech AOC Cheers Carlson’s Fox News Departure

Anti-Free Speech AOC Cheers Carlson’s Fox News Departure

April 25, 2023

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) took to social media on Monday to respond to news that cable news megastar Tucker Carlson was leaving the Fox News Channel — a day after the radical New York Democrat accused him of “incitement of violence.”

Ocasio-Cortez responded to Carlson’s departure with a single word: “Wow.”

Then she retweeted a clip of her Sunday interview with former Biden White House press propagandist Jen Psaki in which she claimed falsely that Carlson and “other folks on Fox” promote incitement of violence.

In that interview, AOC told an apparently approving Psaki that she wants to pass laws to restrict what Carlson — and journalists in general — can say. That would be a violation of the First Amendment, of course, but leftists are no fans of free speech.

She said, “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.”

Carlson has never incited violence on his show — if he had, Democrats would already have pounced. But AOC’s comrades in Congress and in the media have incited violence innumerable times on behalf of the domestic terror groups Black Lives Matter and Antifa. That’s different, though, because they’re ideological allies of the Democrats.
