Leftist thugs bullied and threatened the life of an 8-year-old girl for daring to parody, to expose to laughter, their leader AOC. The leftists, who have so far faced no criminal or even social media company sanction, have proven, once again, that totalitarians cannot tolerate laughter at them or their ideas. Yet, if AOC could only chill out and seize the obvious pop-culture reference, couldn’t she gain a broader and deeper cultural cool cred?
The Mini AOC social media accounts were created by a father and mother with an 8-year-old daughter who had the acting chops, the presence, to gently satirize Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. They did not seek anonymity. Rather, they acted as Americans who expect to be able to poke fun at our politicians.
This went on for some months until AOC was exposed for having staged, with the full collusion of the leftist media, a fake crying session. It was fake on every level, including the location, which was a chain link fence in front of an almost empty parking lot. The left’s standard position in such cases is that it was fake but true, that political theater is “true” if it communicates the politically correct message.
