Jose Vega, a follower of the late maverick Lyndon Larouche, went viral on Wednesday night together with his friend who goes by Noggatone for criticizing AOC for “running as an outsider” and then voting to “send arms and weapons to Ukraine” and risk starting a nuclear war.
Vega was locked out of his Twitter account on Thursday after the video went viral, with Twitter telling him he violated their rules against “abuse and harassment.”
“You may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so,” Twitter told him. “This includes wishing or hoping that someone experiences physical harm.”
My friend @JosBtrigga was just locked out of his account after him and I confronted AOC on her support for nuclear war. As usual, Twitter shows itself to be an enemy of free speech and expression pic.twitter.com/ABXfcO8d73— Kynan (@Noggatone) October 13, 2022
“My friend @JosBtrigga was just locked out of his account after him and I confronted AOC on her support for nuclear war,” Noggatone said. “As usual, Twitter shows itself to be an enemy of free speech and expression.”
AOC herself said in 2020 that “the whole point of protesting is to make ppl uncomfortable.”
“Activists take that discomfort w/ the status quo & advocate for concrete policy changes,” AOC said. “Popular support often starts small & grows. To folks who complain protest demands make others uncomfortable… that’s the point.”
The thing that critics of activists don’t get is that they tried playing the “polite language” policy game and all it did was make them easier to ignore.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) December 2, 2020
It wasn’t until they made folks uncomfortable that there was traction to do ANYTHING even if it wasn’t their full demands.
Nonetheless, if you make her uncomfortable she calls for your censorship.
Just three months ago, AOC called for our entire system of government to be changed because Capitol police couldn’t arrest Alex Stein for jokingly calling her a “big booty Latina.”
