AOC Cheers Foreign Election Meddling in Trump Campaign Using China's Tik Tok Platform

Democrats have spent the better part of President Donald Trump’s first term lamenting ‘foreign election interference’ in the 2016 contest, claiming – without evidence – that his campaign ‘colluded with Russia to steal the election’ from Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
Well, not only was Clinton an uninspiring, horrible candidate, but Trump outworked her with a better message in states she took for granted. That, and the ‘Russian collusion narrative,’ which is at the heart of the Obama-era “Spygate” scandal, was a fabrication to begin with.
Nevertheless, because Democrats and Leftists in general are gigantic hypocrites, leave to one of the biggest among them to cheer foreign election interference in the form of punking the president’s rally Saturday night in Tulsa.
In a post to Twitter, Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York bragged that Leftist activists allegedly used social media to make scores of bogus requests for tickets to the rally, leading Trump campaign officials to announce that more than 1 million had been received.
“Radical protestors, fueled by a week of apocalyptic media coverage, interfered with @realDonaldTrump supporters at the rally. They even blocked access to the metal detectors, preventing people from entering. Thanks to the 1,000s who made it anyway!” campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted Saturday evening.
That much is true. Social media was filled with incidents, clashes, and shouting matches between Trump supporters and Black Lives Matter demonstrators, many of whom were bussed in specifically for the event so they could harass and intimidate.
The outsized harassment also led the campaign to cancel an outside rally during the president’s speech, as The Washington Times reported.
“Sadly, protesters interfered with supporters, even blocking access to the metal detectors, which prevented people from entering the rally,” said Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh. “Radical protesters, coupled with a relentless onslaught from the media, attempted to frighten off the president’s supporters. We are proud of the thousands who stuck it out.”
But AOC took to Twitter to make a startling statement, in response to Parscale.
“Actually you just got ROCKED by teens on TikTok who flooded the Trump campaign w/ fake ticket reservations & tricked you into believing a million people wanted your white supremacist open mic enough to pack an arena during COVID Shout out to Zoomers. Y’all make me so proud,” she wrote.
TikTok is a Chinese platform, and as anyone with any knowledge of the regime in Beijing at all knows, every ounce of information that passes through a Chinese communication system – newspapers, the Internet, social media platforms – are all tightly controlled and regulated by the Communist regime.
Therefore, in essence, Ocasio-Cortez was supporting the use of a foreign-controlled social media platform to meddle in the campaign of a U.S. presidential candidate – for which she was called out.
“So you’re admitting your fans committed fraud by booking tickets hoping to leave a bunch of empty seats by then not showing up. And on top of that your calling the president a Nazi. You are a deranged,” conservative YouTuber Mark Dice tweeted in response to AOC’s statement.
Pretty much. Because, you know, when Democrats do things like recruit foreign assistance in pursuit of their political objectives, it’s just fine.
