Alexandria Cortez Mentioned Media Literacy to Combat “Misinformation”

| January 14, 2021 | 29 Comments

On another thread here, someone suggested that international audiences may see us as “buffoons”. The reality? People in different countries see things similar to us. (nagee)

During an Instagram stream, Alexandria Cortez entertained questions related to truth and reconciliation and media literacy. She responded that there were talks in Congress about investigating media literacy. The motivation for this was the events of January 6 at the Capitol. She also discussed what she felt during the event.

From Fox News:

“I can tell you that I had a very close encounter where I thought I was going to die,” she said. “And you have all of those thoughts where, at the end of your life…all of these thoughts come rushing to you. And that’s what happened to a lot of us on Wednesday and I did not think — I did not know if I was going to make it to the end of that day alive.”

She said she didn’t just mean it generally but in a “very, very specific sense.”

The congresswoman gave no details, saying she wasn’t sure if she was allowed to completely discuss what happened for security reasons.

It wasn’t an exaggeration to say that “many, many members of the House were nearly assassinated,” she told her followers.

“We were very lucky that things happened in certain minutes that allowed members to escape the House floor but many of us nearly and narrowly escaped death,” she added.

Alexandria Cortez also called on President Trump and on other Republicans to resign if they pushed “lies” that “undermined democracy” and “resulted” in the attack on the Capitol in order to overturn the election.

    They are going to blow the Capitol Incident out of proportion.

    I expect stories of how the brave congresspeople narrowly escaped death at the hand of highly trained Trumpian stormtroopers in full battle rattle and armed with deathly scary black assault rifles.

    Congress might even award themselves a medal for surviving the Capitol Incident.

      I am sure you have all seen the story and picture, maybe even the video of the “Brave” Capital Police Officer confronting the “Assassins” in the hallway and “leading” them away from the then open door to the House Floor where I am sure AOC and her fellow Members were all huddled and peeing themselves.

      Unlike at the softball practice where they had to low crawl off the open field to get out of the guys line of sight with the actual AR-15 he was shooting them with. No Police present to return fire.

      What is laughable is that none of the “Stormtroopers who invaded the Capital were armed, and the hockey individuals who were confronted by the Police seemed to actually be taking commands from him to stop, wait here, ok it is clear, follow me, no don’t go that way, this way , up here… He was definitely leading them around, but they seemed more tourist than terrorist.

        I liked the pic where the assassins were meekly following him like they were on a Capitol tour, staying within the velvet ropes.

        Not to nit pick, but the D-rat Bernie Bro would-be assassin was shooting a ChiCom SKS at the Republican congressmen, not an AR-15.

    Does she mean like this?

    So, if Also Old Cotex told us what actually happened in her brush with death that she would have to kill us? Is that the new narrative?

    Anyone else notice how much the left is screaming about how the “Trumpies” are trying to destroy democracy while the left if actually doing the destroying?

    You know, I was thinking at about 0GOD45 hours, while doing some research, that the one good thing that may come out of Trump leaving office would be the spapos seagull would no longer have any reason to show up here. Who would become the new target for his vulgar, hate filled drivel. Then I remembered, his aggravating needs to be fragged ass was showing up here, spewing his hate filled, vulgar drivel, well before Trump was elected. He, like all of the other leftists, including Also Old Cotex, seem hell bent to blame others for the very thing that they are doing.

  5. Mason says:

    exaggeration

    I do not think that word means what she thinks it means.

    She’s not the only Democrat this week to play up last week’s event as some sort of assassination attempt. The reprehensible people who broke into the Capitol were an awfully jovial and smiley lot for would-be murderers.

  6. E4 Mafia '83-'87 says:

    She’s so dumb…about…everything…ever.

  7. Twist says:

    I’m 100% positive she isn’t talking about misinformation coming from her side of the aisle. If it wasn’t for misinformation her side of the aisle would have no information to give to the public.

  8. SFC D says:

    She doesn’t want “media literacy”. It’s up to the American public to hold the media accountable for what they publish. What this… person… wants to establish is government control of the media, and only allow approved speech. I believe that’s called censorship. And that pesky constitution thing says NO.

  9. USMC Steve says:

    AOC = Arrogant Obnoxious Cunt.

  10. They are going to run this into the ground. Which media?? the cnn/LSMFT or is it msnbc but most likely any Conservative media they can dig up.

    the besig:

    KUDOs to you for addressing her as Alexandria Cortez…

    Or are we, the ninja family, being impolite, i.e. politically incorrect…(Smile) because we don’t call her by her full name…

    As retired US Army Soldiers, the ninja family knows the tradition of hyphenated surnames within the Hispanic community…however, even though our Hispanic Soldiers used their hyphenated surnames on their name tapes, we as well as those Soldiers still addressed them with the last portion of that surname..

    Thank You for sharing his article with us.

  12. Charles says:

    I’m waiting for the remake of an AOC video in the style of the Hillary Clinton dodging sniper fire (while at the same time receiving a boquet of flowers and being welcomed after her plane landed).
    Remember that?

  13. C2Show says:

    Lol looks like someone is taking others words and twisting them to his liking. Pretty sure it was said that some trumpites are buffoons, not every trump follower is.

    Again, all he had to do was tell clowns to go back home. If you invade government grounds without permission, you are committing a crime.

    Amazing that Americans just cant do the right thing and follow the law. Goes for trumpites, blm or any protesters.

    Meanwhile, Jack Dorsey’s flappin’ his gums about censoring Trump:

  15. 11B-Mailclerk says:

    It would be misinformation, right, to say the ChiComCoof lockdowns were mostly just political theater to hurt Trump and seize greater power.

    Because if it was true that the ChiComCoof lockdowns were anti-Trump theater, the lockdowns would start to be lifted as soon as it looked like someone else was elected. Like didn’t happen in Chicago. Or didn’t happen in New York.

    Some interesting info about Jackie-boi motives for pulling Trump off of Twatter:
