AOC On Tucker: De-Platforming Works

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is celebrating the fact Fox News departed ways with Tucker Carlson.

AOC stated “Tucker Carlson is out at Fox News, couldn’t have happened to a better guy. De-platforming works, and it is important.”

She would also call Tucker a “villain.”

Watch her say it here:

AOC is now even using Tucker Carlson’s name to fundraise.

Per the Hill:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is raising money off of Tucker Carlson’s exit from Fox News with a pitch attacking the comments he has made on his show.

A message from Ocasio-Cortez’s team to supporters obtained by Punchbowl News says Carlson spent years “viciously targeting women, people of color, and the LGBTQ+ community.” The message also accuses Carlson of being “directly” involved in inciting violence during the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the U.S. Capitol and “relentlessly” expressing hate speech since his show began in 2016.

It added that Carlson’s exit from Fox news is a positive development for anyone fighting against hate speech.

“Alexandria directly challenges Tucker Carlson and all the many voices like him that are sadly still on the air. She deftly exposes their hypocrisy, calls out their racism and misogyny, and advances policy that will create the more just, inclusive world they so desperately oppose,” the message states.
