Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is once again demonstrating she has no clue what the First Amendment entails as journalist Glenn Greenwald schooled her in the left’s blatant censorship over Jan. 6 and labeling everyone who disagrees with them as “racist.”

“Imagine living in the US today, where the #1 source of domestic terrorism is far-right groups(per FBI!), books about slavery are getting banned, parents are criminalized for trans kids, yet asserting the 1st amendment is about protecting bigots from feeling embarrassed in public,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted managing to throw transgenders into the mix in a blatant attempt at virtue signaling.

“Booo corny tomato tomato tomato 🍅 🍅 I’m on team ’embarrassing racists is our first amendment right, not their first amendment violation’ thanks,” she continued.

“So many peoples’ lives are actually endangered for their views, yet these 1st amendment screeds only seem to crop up in defense of the historically powerful claiming minority status. Until it shows up for everyone, it’s merely a service for the powerful, not a challenge of it,” the Democratic Socialist nonsensically asserted.

Greenwald proceeded to put Ocasio-Cortez’s intelligence quotient in serious doubt. Et tu free speech?

“January 7, 2021: Parler became the US’s most-downloaded app. January 8: @AOC demanded Apple & Google use their monopolistic power to remove Parler from its store. January 9: Google and Apple obeyed. Parler was destroyed. It’s about a little more than ‘feeling embarrassed,'” he tweeted efficiently eviscerating the young leftist.

“In 4 tweets, the story of how @AOC and a few of her Dem colleagues abused their majoritarian power in DC to coerce Silicon Valley monopolies to destroy a highly popular app they disliked. Censorship concerns are about more than ‘hurt feelings’ and mean tweets from random users,” Greenwald stated putting Ocasio-Cortez’s lack of constitutional understanding on full display for all to see.

“For those invoking 1/6 to justify this state censorship, 2 points: 1) Note how many episodes now justify censorship (Russiagate, 1/6, COVID, war in Ukraine, etc). 2) Far more 1/6 planning was done on YouTube, yet no Dems wanted to destroy it: they used Google to destroy Parler,” he concluded.

No one seemed impressed with Ocasio-Cortez’s partisan arguments and her equivocating First Amendment rights for the masses. Twitter reflected the general disdain for the clueless Democrat:
