Twitter Bans AOC Parody Account, Say It was Too Close to the Real Thing
Most of you aren't on Twitter, thank God. It's mostly a hive of scum and villainy. But a few things make Twitter worth the hassle of Twitter: animated gifs, dog videos and on point parody accounts. One such account was a parody account of AOC, which may have been too real in its ridiculousness, confusing people into thinking the parody AOC account was the real AOC. Since silliness is what she douses herself with before going out the door to save the world from cow farts. We just can't have someone mocking a leftist princess like AOC, especially so accurately, so the parody account had to go.
The social network appears to be implying that the AOC Press parody account – which often posted moronic gibberish as a play on Ms. Ocasio-Cortez’s ability to flub her lines – is too close to what the Democrat Congresswoman is actually like in real life, causing confusion for Twitter users.
To be fair, many Twitter users live in a perpetual state of confusion. Which is why I encourage those of you who are not on Twitter to stay off Twitter. The larger problem is an obvious one, that of a social media platform denying access to such a large medium based purely on his politics. Specifically how he mocked someone who can't stand to be criticized.
“I think Twitter banned AOC Press for the increasing amounts of attention it’s been receiving lately.
“In the past month and a half alone the account grew by roughly 50,000 followers. We’ve had tweets with over 30,000 likes on them, so I think Twitter decided it was time for [the account] to go. They didn’t like how popular an account created by their political opposition had become.”
Bingo. It's one thing if you're a parody account without the attention, or if you're parodying a Republican. But to criticize a leftist, that's a no go. Put simply:
Since Twitter won't outline its TOS, I'll help: If you're on the right, a parody account gets you banned. If you… https://t.co/4Qi5oWpQI0— Steven Crowder (@Steven Crowder)1557238254.0
So making fun of AOC, who's easily mockable, gets you banned. But if you're an obnoxious troll harassing old ladies and teen girls, encouraging the doxxing of those young girls, that's no problem.

Social media is at war with conservatives. What other conclusion am I to draw here? Because it wasn't just the AOC Press account that was banned. Mike Morrison, who ran the AOC account, also had his personal account banned.
Question the left, expose who they are, engage people's minds: get banned. Threaten, bully, or otherwise harass conservatives: gold stars for you.
