AOC Photographer Demands Removal of Images Showing Congresswoman Crying Over Nothing

Legal threat came after stunt was condemned as a misleading photo-op.

Published

The photographer who took the photos of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appearing to cry at a protest outside a “tent city” in Tornillo, Texas demanded the removal of the images after it was revealed that AOC was actually crying over little more than a few police officers and an empty parking lot as part of a stunt.

Earlier this week, we highlighted the fact that Ocasio-Cortez was clearly trying to mislead the public when she tweeted, “I saw with my own eyes” America was “becoming a nation that steals refugee children from their parents, & caged them.”

Numerous other photos taken at the scene show that there was no “tent city” or any detained children in AOC’s view. Her emotional reaction to precisely nothing illustrates how the entire stunt was part of a photo-op designed to emotionally manipulate the public.

Two days after Infowars published the article, photographer Ivan Pierre Aguirre, who shot and tweeted four images from the event that AOC subsequently retweeted, demanded the images be removed.

“I did not give you or Info Wars or @PrisonPlanet permission to use the photos I have a copyright on for your stories,” tweeted Aguirre. “This is a take down notice. Thank you.”

However, Aguirre’s photos are clearly in the public interest given that they concern a sitting member of Congress and have been re-produced everywhere after he personally made them public via Twitter.

It seems very odd that Aguirre and Ocasio-Cortez would decide to publish the photos to garner attention, but then demand they be removed when the narrative behind them comes under scrutiny.

Snopes and others have since tried to assert that it’s erroneous to claim AOC was crying over an empty parking lot. In reality, once again it’s Snopes who are deliberately publishing fake news.

In her original tweet about the photos, Ocasio-Cortez said, “I saw with my own eyes that the America I love was becoming a nation that steals refugee children from their parents, & caged them.”

The clear implication was that she was looking at detained migrant children, when in reality the only thing immediately beyond the fence was a handful of bored police officers and their vehicles.

People who saw the images also presumed that AOC was crying over caged children, with one commenting, “I feel her emotions in every single picture. Especially that last one. It’s pure anger, and how can one not feel anger after seeing what she saw?”

What she “saw” was a vast empty space along with a smattering of other activists feigning emotion over nothing. The protest was attended by over a dozen celebrities as part of a photo-op.

If a Republican Congressman had posted photos of himself crying outside a Planned Parenthood facility, only for it to subsequently be revealed that there was no such facility within view, leftists would call that a stunt or a photo-op.

AOC clearly engaged in a carefully staged photo-op and no amount of feigned righteous indignation or threats to remove evidence will change that patent fact.

Conservative activist CJ Pearson found his Twitter account locked, Wednesday after he posted a statement condemning pedophilia.

Pearson posted the statement “Every pedophile in America should be castrated,” but found his account locked shortly after, with Twitter ruling that the post had violated its “abuse and harassment” policy.

Pearson was thus forced to delete the tweet in order to get his account back.

“After condemning child predators, Twitter gave me the boot,” Pearson announced on returning.

“I refuse to change my political stances for Twitter and I will never cave to the mob,” he added.

We have surely hit peak 2020 when big tech is choosing to censor people for “harassing” pedophiles.

Meanshile, people around the world are awakening and “harassing” the pedophilia circles of the rich and powerful:

Twitter Censors Trump Again, Claims To Be Protecting “Civil And Election Integrity”

“Engagements with the Tweet will be limited”

Twitter once again censored a post by Donald Trump Sunday, this time claiming that the President had “violated the Twitter Rules about civil and election integrity.”

Trump tweeted a claim that mail drop boxes are a “voter security disaster,” and would open the door to allow people to vote multiple times.

The president also warned that the mailboxes are not sanitized, and could help spread Covid-19.

Within a few hours, the tweet was censored by Twitter:

“This tweet violated the Twitter Rules about civil and election integrity. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible,” the filter read.

“Per our policies, this Tweet will remain on the service given its relevance to ongoing public conversation. Engagements with the Tweet will be limited. People will be able to Retweet with Comment, but not Like, Reply, or Retweet it,” a statement from Twitter read.

Twitter censoring Trump is now a regular occurrence.

Back in May, the company posted “fact check” labels to Trump’s tweets regarding potential fraud stemming from mail-in ballots. Trump’s tweet was deemed to be misleading, regardless of the fact that a USPS mail carrier in West Virginia was charged with fraud for tampering with vote-by-mail requests.

Twitter again censored one of Trump’s tweets at the height of rioting in Minneapolis, claiming that the President was “glorifying violence”.

Twitter inserted a “public interest notice” on another of Trump’s tweets in June, accusing him of “threatening harm against an identifiable group” when the President warned that any violence among protests in Washington would be met with a show of force in order to keep law and order.

Just weeks later in July, Twitter removed a meme that Trump had retweeted.

Twitter also completely removed a video of a Fox & Friends interview earlier this month claiming Trump was spreading “misinformation” about the coronavirus when he stated that children are ‘almost completely immune’ from the virus.
Two more tweets from Trump were not censored Sunday, both slamming Democrats for removing the words “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance during last week’s DNC:

Viral Shadowgate Documentary Deleted by Facebook and YouTube After Film Maker’s Arrest

Movie was going viral with millions of views.

Published

on

Millie Weaver

The Shadowgate documentary, which went viral after one of its producers was arrested on Friday, has now been removed by both YouTube and Facebook.

Journalist Millie Weaver was charged with alleged “robbery, tampering with evidence, obstruction justice, and domestic violence” after police officers apparently from a local SWAT team showed up at her Ohio home Friday morning and took her to the Portage County Jail in Ravenna.

The Portage County Sheriff’s Office later confirmed that there was a “secret indictment” against Weaver but refused to give further details.

A woman claiming to be Weaver’s mother later commented that there had been a family dispute over a $50 cellphone on April 25, but that she had almost immediately dropped all charges against Weaver and expressed shock that her daughter had been arrested.

The arrest occurred on the eve of Weaver releasing Shadowgate, a documentary that purports to expose the “operational role the shadow government played behind the scenes carrying out the coup against President Trump.”

After the documentary received millions of views following its upload to Facebook and YouTube, both websites censored the film, with YouTube claiming the movie violated its rules against “hate speech.”

Weaver is expected to appear in front of a “tentative bond meeting” later today.

The full Shadowgate documentary can still be seen below.

Weaver is expected to appear in front of a “tentative bond meeting” later today.

There is also a live protest against her arrest taking place in Ohio right now.
