Ocasio-Cortez Gets TORN To SHREDS After THIS

It’s unbelievable that an AMERICAN politician could be like her…

On Wednesday, Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other Democrats on the House Financial Services Committee were slammed publicly for their “arrogant,” “inaccurate” and “embarrassing” assault on Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook.

For more than six hours Zuckerberg stood before the panel to answer questions about the new cryptocurrency of Facebook, Libra.

“Anybody who believes the Democrats are angry at Facebook because they want more free speech should take a look at this,” Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro commented on the hearing. “Democrats are angry at Facebook because they want less free speech. They simply want more Democratic control of the means of informational distribution.”

Rep. Al Green pressed Zuckerberg on the inclusion of some intersectional groups within the Libra initiative of the organization.

Upon wondering how many women and how many minorities are working on the project, Green asked Zuckerberg: “Are there any members of the LGBTQ+ community associated with this association, Mr. Zuckerberg?”

Senior RealClearInvestigations writer Mark Hemingway commented on Greens’ remarks, tweeting: “Gotta love it when bosses make a habit of brushing up on their employees’ sex lives. Really shows you care.”

“Is it legal to collect this information?” Reason staff editor Liz Wolf tweeted. “Is it in any way relevant to the employee’s ability to do their job well? JFC, people.”

During another portion of questioning, Rep. Joyce Beatty suggested, without evidence, that Zuckerberg had “ruined the lives of many [African-Americans].”

“Do you know what percentage of African Americans are on Facebook, in comparison to majority folks?” Beatty pressed. “Do you know what the percentages are?”

Zuckerberg responded: “I don’t because we don’t collect the races of people.”

“Holy, this lady almost makes AOC look competent,” Dave Rubin commented. “I actually feel bad for Zuckerberg. That’s how totally ridiculous these congresspeople are.”

Far-left Rep. Ayanna Pressley mocked Zuckerberg during another embarrassing part of the hearing because some people in the world don’t have a lot of money.

Pressley, like many of her cohorts, questioned Zuckerberg endlessly on concerns that he was unlikely to know the answers to and then cut him off before he could give the real answers to their questions.

Ocasio-Cortez, whose greed and willingness to silence her critics was on full display, was the most cringeworthy part of the hearing.

Ocasio-Cortez indicated that she wanted to take advantage of Facebook’s decision not to suppress politicians’ political speech by deliberately lying in her campaign ads, falsely stating that Conservatives backed her $93 trillion Green New Deal.

Ocasio-Cortez also raised baseless threats against The Daily Caller, a conservative publication that opposed the often faulty policies of Ocasio-Cortez and frequently called out her false statements and exposed scandals surrounding her.

Ocasio-Cortez said The Daily Caller “has ties to white supremacists,” a statement that drew rapid response from The Daily Caller’s leadership.

“Those accusations are rich coming from the leader of the most openly anti-Semitic freshman Congress in modern American history,” Daily Caller Editor-in-Chief Geoffrey Ingersoll told The Daily Wire. “Ocasio-Cortez herself employed a staffer who lionized Nazis collaborators. Maybe she should spend more time cleaning her room and making her bed before she goes to work.”

“Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez’s call for censorship is typical coming from a party hellbent on annihilating opposing views, in this case one of the only groups of journalists aggressively reporting on her,” Ingersoll added.

In a tweet, The Daily Caller wrote: “Ooh did our reporting on her campaign finance shenanigans get under her skin?”

The tweet linked to a report by investigative reporter Andrew Kerr titled, “Ocasio-Cortez And Her Chief Of Staff ‘Could Be Facing Jail Time’ If Their Control Over PAC Was Intentionally Hidden, Former FEC Commissioner Says.”

The Daily Caller issued a statement on Ocasio-Cortez’s remarks from publisher Neil Patel.

“Our reporting has directly contributed to putting four members of the ‘alt-right’ in prison and sending two more on the run, at great personal risk to our reporters on the ground,” Patel wrote. “And as a minority-owned and minority-run news company with a diverse staff — including many African-American, Jewish, Asian, and other minority employees — any allegation that our company is in league with white supremacy is offensive.”

“We have denounced white supremacy in the past and are happy to do so again,” Patel continued. “We share nothing with them and they aren’t welcome at our company. For a sitting member of Congress to knowingly repeat such spurious allegations — especially during these polarized, violent times — is not just despicable, it endangers out staff.”

The assault on Zuckerberg by Ocasio-Cortez unsurprisingly received the biggest public negative reaction.

Dave Rubin tweeted: “She’s absolutely awful. Zuckerberg tries to calmly explain that allowing people to decide for themselves is sometimes what’s right. That’s foreign to progressive groupthink.”

Tim Pool tweeted: “AOC just proved exactly why Mark Zuckerberg is right to not police truthfulness of political speech Poynter runs the fact checking approval for Facebook, she is wrong and is smearing the Daily Caller Should Facebook ban AOC from saying this on FB?”

Guy Benson tweeted: “Can confirm: White supremacy was not joked about, made light of, espoused, or even mentioned at the ‘far right’ / Zuckerberg dinner party I attended. What a performance she put on.”

Allie Beth Stuckey tweeted: “My gosh. @AOC tries very hard to seem fierce and operates solely out of a desire for viral clips. These questions are not at all interesting or clever, and she is cringefully arrogant.”

  • Gee you think after the vicious treatment Zuckerberg (democrat) received by these dem congressmen and women, he would switch parties immediately!!

  • At least Zuckerberg has some sense. Many in Congress do no have a lick of common sense. And they prove it by asking stupid questions.
