death threats against mini-Ocasio-Cortez came just as Frederica Wilson called for prosecuting congressional ridicule
[AMERICANTHINKER] By Monica Showalter
I was going to write this piece on the left's ugly way of censoring little eight year olds who make fun of congressional members, such as the precocious Ava Martinez whose satirical impersonations of Rep. Alexandria
Boom Boom Ocasio-Cortez
Dem represntative from da Bronx in Noo Yawk and leader of the Mean Girl Caucus in Congress. One of the Great Minds of the 21st Century, she is known as much for her innaleck as for her dance moves. She is all in favor of socialism, even though she's fuzzy on the details...
are preternaturally brilliant. The child's family got doxxed and death-threatened, and as a result, the little girl's parents announced the shutdown of all the child's social media accounts, whose videos have delighted conservatives. (A few can still be seen here and here.)

It shows that the left is synonymous with censorship in every awful way - from social media censorship, to campus silencings, to the brutal attack on journalist Andy Ngo, to the gaslighting in the press about President Trump being the censor instead. But this sort of censorship, depriving all of us who enjoy these hilarious videos, every one of them a work of genius, is the worst. The child is eight years old. Democrats have made a huge stink about the treatment of foreign eight year olds in undocumented Democrat detention camps. Where's Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's concern about this eight year old dealing with death threats and doxxing in a bid to ensure that lots of fear if not some death might happen?
Actually, nowhere. But in light of this outrageous silencing of a child, something did come to light a couple days ago that gives one pause.
According to the Washington Examiner, Noted Rodeo Clown Rep. Frederica Wilson made this argument:
"Those people who are online making fun of members of Congress are a disgrace, and there is no need for anyone to think that is unacceptable [sic]," Wilson said during comments made Tuesday outside of the Homestead Temporary Shelter for Unaccompanied Children in Homestead, Florida.
"We're gonna shut them down and work with whoever it is to shut them down, and they should be prosecuted," she continued. "You cannot intimidate members of Congress, frighten members of Congress. It is against the law, and it's a shame in this United States of America."
What a coincidence. And maybe it was just a coincidence that this call to prosecute those who make fun of Congress, as if America is now Castroite Cuba, is just a coincidence that Mini-Ocasio was suddenly in for a surge of death threats in a bid to shut her down, same as would happen if prosecutions became the norm of the day.
And surprise, surprise: Wilson just happens to be an unusually close ally of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, as I noted in December here.
Might this Wilson stunt have had Ocasio-Cortez more in mind than Wilson herself? Could the death threats and doxxings have actually come from some member of Ocasio-Cortez's or Wilson's political machines? It would be useful to know who did them and if I were an investigator, it's one place where I'd look. We already know what kinds of people are in those congressional political machines, given the recent jail sentences meted out to a couple of Democratic congressional staffers over the doxxing of then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
