Radical Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has taken to social media to celebrate Tucker Carlson’s ousting at Fox News.
In a video posted to her Instagram account, AOC boasted to her supporters that “deplatforming works.”
Fox News announced Monday that the network had “agreed to part ways” with Carlson.
However, it later emerged that Fox boss Rupert Murdoch personally ordered that Carlson be terminated.
Yet, just hours before Carlson’s ousting was announced, AOC demanded during an interview with MSNBC that her media critics should be banned from TV.
As Slay News reported, during an interview with Democrat President Joe Biden’s former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, AOC falsley claimed that Carlson and “other folks on Fox” are inciting “violence.”
“Federal regulation, in terms of what’s allowed on air and what isn’t,” AOC demanded as Psaki nodded along in agreement.
“And when you look at what Tucker Carlson and what of these other folks on Fox do, it is very very clearly incitement of violence, very clearly incitement of violence and that is the line that we have to be willing to contend with,” she said.

Unsurprisingly, AOC failed to provide a single example of the alleged “incitement of violence,” despite claiming that Carlson and his colleagues at Fox News are “very very clearly” guilty of it.
Now AOC is gloating about the ousting of Carlson and seemingly suggesting that she may have played a role in “deplatforming” the star anchor.
“Tucker Carlson is out at Fox News,” AOC gleefully declared in the video.
“Couldn’t have happened to a better guy.”
AOC indicated she was “very glad” that Fox News gave Carlson the boot.
She continued by repeating the unfounded claim that he was “arguably responsible” for “driving some of the most, uh, amounts of death threats and violent threats, not just to my office but to plenty of people across the country.”
While delighted by this turn of events, Ocasio-Cortez acknowledged that Carlson’s days of calling her out are likely far from over.
“Um, I also kind of feel like I’m like waiting for the cut scene at the end of a Marvel movie, after all the credits have rolled, and then you see like the villain’s like hand re-emerge out to grip over like the end of a building or something,” she said.
The socialist congresswoman held off on her more controversial statement until the end of the video, however.
She concluded her celebratory remarks by declaring: “Deplatforming works and it is important and um, there you go.
“Good things can happen.”
