AOC Blasts ABC And Sinclair For Allowing Debate Ad Showing Her Picture In Flames

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized ABC and Sinclair for a GOP group’s ad that ran during Thursday night’s Democratic debate in which her picture was shown set on fire.

“GOP’s message: No policy, no facts, just displays of violence + corporations like @ABCNetwork & Sinclair who amplify them. They profit from burning my likeness on TV. But who pays for heightened security? Who answers the phones for the threats resulting from a violent, false ad?” she wrote on Twitter.

Now, however you might personally feel about AOC, I would say an ad showing her image being set on fire is also an implicit death threat. How was this allowed to be aired during the Democratic debate?

So much for broadcasting in the public interest, though of course that's been dead practically since ronzo was bumbling around the White House.

Agreed that this is an implicit death threat, and should be investigated as same, though it won't be.

BTW, the irony is that the person who ran the ad is a Cambodian-American, and therefore she denies the attack on AOC is racist.

What's odd is the ad compares her political views to that of the Khmer Rouge, which is of course f'n ridiculous.

But Julián was mean to Joe, though. :problem:

Equating "socialism" with the nationalist totalitarianism of the Khmer Rouge is the point, though.

I do notice that these rightwing nutjob conservative males focus their heat-of-a-million-suns wrath on "DSA" socialist AOC, though, and not the actual, self-identified "socialist," Bernie Sanders. Like all authoritarian men, they are terrified of women they cannot control or Sally Hemmings.
