AOC Appears to Never Have Read the First Amendment

During the recent questioning of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Rep Alexandria Ocasio Cortez demonstrated her complete lack of understanding of the First Amendment.

According to Town Hall:

“I just want to know how far I can push this,” an indignant Ocasio-Cortez asked during the hearing.”Could I pay to target predominately black zip codes and advertise them the incorrect election date?”

Zuckerberg responded, “No, congresswoman. You couldn’t,” citing the census-and-voter-suppression policy Facebook plans on implementing.

Knowing the unpopularity of her legislation, Ocasio-Cortez then asked Zuckerberg if she “could run ads targeting Republicans in primaries saying they voted for the Green New Deal?” Zuckerberg answered, “I don’t know the answer off the top of my head, but I think probably.” Ocasio-Cortez then asked, “Do you see a potential problem here with a complete lack of fact-checking on political advertisements?”

Zuckerberg attempted to explain the concept behind the First Amendment to the congresswoman and how honesty is usually the best policy. “I think lying is bad, and I think if you were to run an ad that had a lie, that would be bad. That’s different from it being, in our position, the right thing to do to prevent your constituents or people in an election from seeing that you had lied.”

Zuckerberg ended his response by stating that in a democracy people should be able to judge the character and believability of a politician for themselves.

The reason for AOC being dangerous is she has no brain connected to her lying big mouth.

What makes any one think AOC can read the Constitution, or if she can read she has the intelligence to understand what she has read? Soldier/Cop/Grunt, Retired

Well she was an actress…and with that she had to read her lines. But why anyone voted for her is just escaping my understanding. She definitely needs lessons in the U.S. Constitution, but then she’s a Socialist, therefore I don’t think she’s gives a rat’s pa-toot. She’s one of those who is striving to get rid of the Constitution, until it’s her turn to need it. But in the Socialist world she loves and holds dear, her opportunities will be gone.

If AOC did read and understand our constitution, she would also have to overcome her problem with control. The poor woman does not see herself realistically as one of many citizens in this country who must respect the needs and wishes of all who live here. There can be no special considerations designed for herself only.

She is without a doubt the dumbest woman ever to be a congress person….at least since Waters and Omar is right there in the jackass class.

There should be a requirement for members of Congress that they have an IQ above room temperature and be able to pass an exam that we administer to immigrants applying for US citizenship.

Just to be clear, you think AOC asking a private company if they would let her lie on their platform is a question is the first amendment? Have *YOU* read it? The first amendment of the constitution has nothing to do with private companies regulating speech, and it makes you look like a disengenuous fool to suggest otherwise while mocking someone literally for being ignorant of the thing you clearly do not understand.

OC is getting big money from the Dems to make herself the 2019 Asshole of the year. For sure she will be winner of the 2019 ” Bottle of Sh… Award”, from CNN. There is no need to know how to read to be stupid and imbecile.

OC is the front runner for the Left ” 2019 Asshole Award of the Year”. Presented by the one and only “Imbecile frog-eyes” Rep. Adam Schiff . Once I heard someone said that the present Congress was a pot of human excrement and now the pot tllted.
