“Squad” member, and ultra-radical, AOC, aka Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who appears to be suffering from a deficit of morals, sent “teens” a message of gratitude last night for using Tik-Tok, an app made by a tech company in Beijing, to lie about attending President Trump’s Tulsa rally.
It’s horrifying that a sitting member of Congress would tweet to a group of teenagers to congratulate them for organizing deceit on an app from Communist China, but what’s even more horrifying is that Democrats in Congress find her behavior to be acceptable.
AOC’s tweet, “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,” is something one would expect to see on a middle-school girl’s Twitter feed, certainly not on the Twitter feed of a sitting member of Congress.

Conservative Mark Dice responded to AOC’s tweet:
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, you’re calling the president a Nazi. You are deranged.
Raheem Kassam, editor of the National Pulse asked AOC:
Tik Tok is a Chinese Communist Party-controlled platform and you’re bragging about an effort to undermine a US election on there?
Bradley Scott nailed it with his response to AOC:
AOC, your party has no message so you lie & deceive. Deception is the only strength of your party. It’s not surprising to me that you would encourage this. Dumb & dishonest people can’t win on the merits so they do stuff like this.
The young and hilarious AOC impersonator, “Mini AOC” won the day with her tweet:
Joe Biden better start moving around or Democrats might mistake him for a statue and tear him down!

The campaign replied to AOC’s tweet and others on social media, who were slapping themselves on the backs for duping the Trump campaign with fake registrations, by reminding them that the violence of the left and the constant shaming by the media about Trump supporters spreading COVID is what frightened Trump supporters away from the event.
Trump campaign statement on bogus claims of ticket hacking“Leftists and online trolls doing a victory lap, thinking they somehow impacted rally attendance, don’t know what they’re talking about or how our rallies work. Reporters who wrote gleefully about TikTok and K-Pop fans – without contacting the campaign for comment – behaved unprofessionally and were willing dupes to the charade. Registering for a rally means you’ve RSVPed with a cell phone number and we constantly weed out bogus numbers, as we did with tens of thousands at the Tulsa rally, in calculating our possible attendee pool. These phony ticket requests never factor into our thinking. What makes this lame attempt at hacking our events even more foolish is the fact that every rally is general admission – entry is on a first-come-first-served basis and prior registration is not required. The fact is that a week’s worth of the fake news media warning people away from the rally because of COVID and protestors, coupled with recent images of American cities on fire, had a real impact on people bringing their families and children to the rally. MSNBC was among outlets reporting that protesters even blocked entrances to the rally at times. For the media to now celebrate the fear that they helped create is disgusting, but typical. And it makes us wonder why we bother credentialing media for events when they don’t do their full jobs as professionals.”
– Brad Parscale, Trump 2020 campaign manager
WCNC reported about how the Tik-Tok app, that’s popular among teenagers, is causing several senators to demand a national security risk assessment.
Tik Tok is one of the most downloaded apps, and it’s especially popular among kids and teens. But it comes with a slew of privacy concerns.
Two senators formally asked the director of national intelligence to investigate national security risks. They’re worried it’s a target for a foreign influence campaign like the one launched on other social media sites.
Senator Chuck Schumer tweeted because the app is “owned by a Beijing-based tech company, it’s required to adhere to Chinese law. That means it can be compelled to cooperate with intelligence work controlled by China’s Communist Party.”
“The concern is how data is collected, where it’s stored, and who has access to it. People are willingly giving data to a social media app,” said Mike Holland with Fortalice Solutions.
There are some risks in your home, too, if the app is downloaded on your kid’s phone.”People don’t really understand how viral and how pervasive the sharing of information can be,” said Holland.
Before a re-brand, the app was known as “Musical.ly” — which had a serious dark side. With a few pointed searches, you could find videos containing pornography or those promoting anorexia, suicide, and self-harm. There was a chat feature, too, exposing kids to strangers.
