AOC Attacks Elon and Trump With Misinfo, Gets Taught a Lesson With Twitter Fact-Check

Democrats have been all-in on the concept of going after people/banning people for “misinformation” on social media. Except, of course, when it comes to themselves. Democrats and the liberal media are a constant font of lies and disinformation. Yet, they virtually never hold themselves to account.


Case in point — the left-wing meltdown happening on Twitter because Elon Musk said he wanted to have “free speech,” and that everyone should have a say in the “town square” that Twitter has become. Some liberals have fled for other sites. Others are still there, grousing about how horrible it is that liberals might no longer control everything.

But the thought that Musk might let President Donald Trump back on the site inflamed “She Who Is Constantly Inflamed,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). She responded to Musk’s Twitter poll on Trump with a boatload of misinformation.

“Idk man, last time he was here this platform was used to incite an insurrection, multiple people died, the Vice President of the United States was nearly assassinated, and hundreds were injured but I guess that’s not enough for you to answer the question” AOC claimed. “Twitter poll it is”

All of that was misinformation — Trump didn’t “incite an insurrection” on Twitter; indeed, he called for people to act “peacefully and patriotically” at his rally, and then followed that up with calling for peace on Twitter, before he got banned.


The riot was not beneficial to Trump’s cause, because it immediately shut down any points that he or members of Congress wanted to make about the election.

The only person killed was Ashli Babbitt, who was shot by a Capitol Police officer. Other people died from natural causes. No police officer was killed. This has been a continual lie, including false information, propagated by the media. Indeed, on the anniversary in 2022, Twitter itself promoted a false “events” thread on this, stating Officer Brian Sicknick had been beaten before he died, although there is no evidence that happened; he died of a stroke, a day later.

The Vice President was not “nearly assassinated.” That’s a bit like how she describes her own fanciful experience of the day — when she was in her office, some distance away from the Capitol building. But then she flipped out when we nailed her false story to the wall.


AOC’s new lies were fact-checked by the readers on the site, something she’s now likely to face a lot and maybe part of the reason she’s throwing a tantrum.

Meanwhile, here is what AOC was spreading during the BLM riots to people, encouraging them to cover up any identifying marks and wear non-descript clothing by which police might identify them.

Why is AOC so fearful of a poll? Because it might blow apart the false narratives that they want to spread.
