Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was one of the liberals triggered by Tesla CEO Elon Musk buying Twitter and pledging to turn the platform into a bastion of free speech.
Ocasio-Cortez’s temper tantrum ended badly.
And that’s because Elon Musk shut down Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with just seven words.
Elon Musk’s simple statement that free speech was a cornerstone value for a functioning democracy set off a meltdown in the left.
“Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” Musk wrote about Twitter. “I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans.”
The ideological foundation of the left is now built upon the fact that corporate media outlets working in concert with their fellow liberals in Silicon Valley must censor their political opponents on the basis of stopping the spread of so-called “misinformation.”
Twitter censoring the New York Post’s reporting about the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop exposed the fact that the left’s definition of misinformation was negative stories about Democrats.
Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow liberals that lost their minds over Musk’s purchase of Twitter were really upset about the fact that they likely lost the ability to pressure Twitter to conform to the left’s demands of ideologically motivated censorship of conservatives.
In typical fashion, Ocasio-Cortez emoted on Twitter whining about Musk owning Twitter supposedly causing an explosion of so-called “hate crimes” to America.
Ocasio-Cortez then falsely claimed that Musk – who previously supported Barack Obama – announced his support for free speech on Twitter after hanging out with Tucker Carlson and pro-Trump billionaire Peter Thiel.
“Tired of having to collectively stress about what explosion of hate crimes is happening bc some billionaire with an ego problem unilaterally controls a massive communication platform and skews it because Tucker Carlson or Peter Thiel took him to dinner and made him feel special,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
Musk mocked Ocasio-Cortez by throwing back in Ocasio-Cortez’s face the New York congresswoman’s outrageous claim that the only reason people criticized her is because they couldn’t date her.
Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy ☺️

In a since-deleted tweet Ocasio-Cortez attempted to save face by offering up a weak joke about how she was really talking about Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
“I was talking about Zuckerberg but ok,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
This entire episode exposed the fact that the left has no confidence in their own ideas, popularity among the public or their ability to win elections.
Liberals believe without social and corporate media-enforced censorship of conservative speech the Democrats are at a disadvantage.
