AOC: Let’s Exploit Riot to Exert Control Over Media

It isn’t only Silicon Valley technoweenies who see the January 6 insurrection as an opportunity to crack down on free speech. During a Tuesday night livestream on Instagram, Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was asked if the Democrat-controlled Congress is considering “truth and reconciliation or media literacy initiatives” in the wake of the riot.

This recalls the Truth and Reconciliation Commission featured in South Africa as leftists transitioned it from a First-World to a Third-World country. “Literacy” is liberalese for political indoctrination.

AOC’s response will alarm advocates of free speech:

“I can say, there is absolutely a commission being discussed but it seems to be more investigatory, in style rather than truth and reconciliation, so I think that’s an interesting concept for us to explore, and I do think that several members of Congress, in some of my discussions, have brought up media literacy because that is a part of what happened here and we’re going to have to figure out how we rein in our media environment so that you can’t just spew disinformation and misinformation.”

As we have been reminded repeatedly over the past year, the overwhelming majority of the media is effectively a propaganda service for the Democrat Party. But information and opinion that conflict with the party line is still disseminated by Fox News, the New York Post, and a few other outlets. Democrats want these outlets controlled, so that every public source of information will speak with a single voice.

On a tip from Henry.
