Anyone notice that those who say they stand for everyone’s rights end up being the first to take them away?
Those that hate fascism end up being fascists??
And that those who support freedom of speech above anything else are the ones that try to silence others before they argue back??
New York’s Democratic Socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has certainly been making the most of her newfound popularity in the media, appearing on multiple major networks and cable news shows.
The 28-year-old progressive now prevented reporters from attending a campaign event in Corona on Sunday, even though it was open to the rest of the public. The campaign reportedly barred reporters from a prior event as well.
Her decision to ban media comes after she was criticized last week for refusing to debate Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro by portraying herself as a victim of “catcalling.”
So, she won’t debate another adult and paints herself as a “victim” when asked to debate. Bottom line: She, as a typical Radical Left, tries to ban anyone who challenges her.
However, Ocasio’s decision backfired badly! She received intense backlash from reporters.
Not sure this holds up. Press banned to make voters more comfortable, except anyone could have walked in as long as they claimed to be a future constituent – unless all attendees had their backgrounds were vetted. Which means it wasn’t ‘open to the public.’ => https://t.co/jDR6j1Yaes

The press is a vulnerable population! Didn't you read those 300 editorials? https://t.co/X8uIj3iU6N

There's a difference between personal casework and a town hall event.
Public discourse requires that all members of the public be allowed to attend or review the event. That includes being open press. https://t.co/egymFdFv3V

And how does the presence of reporters make people feel unsafe?

Every politician in NYC holds constant events in immigrant communities and has done so since the dawn of time, the press covering these forums is totally normal. https://t.co/pyK7mf5JbC

Calling a legitimate story (reporting on a campaign's barring of press at an otherwise public event because the campaign felt it would be a distraction) a "non-story" is not a good look. https://t.co/VhYfr7y5BC https://t.co/GKS33R2Anh

Well, her responses to any criticism are extremely interesting. It’s Victimology 101: Every time someone disagrees with you, play the victim and claim you’re being bullied. The Left is always portraying themselves as “victims” even though they are the ones who initiate all the vicious attacks on everyone.
But maybe, Ocasio-Cortez is mad for a reason. Reporters made Ocasio feel unsafe! After all, reporting on her gaffes is pretty dangerous to her campaign.
