    Ocasio-Cortez Promotes Pro-Iran Propaganda From Russian State Media On Twitter

    Ocasio-Cortez Promotes Pro-Iran Propaganda From Russian State Media On Twitter
    Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) promoted pro-Iran propaganda from Russian state media on Monday which claimed that the Islamic Republic of Iran does not target civilians, which comes just weeks after the Iranian government murdered 1,500 of its own citizens.

    Ocasio-Cortez “liked” a tweet from Rania Khalek, a far-left journalist who works for In the Now, who wrote: “A friend flying into the US says he hasn’t seen so much security since 9/11. The US is terrified of how Iran will retaliate. Iran won’t attack civilians, that’s what al Qaeda does. But it shows this assassination did the opposite of making Americans safer and our leaders know it.”

    When a Twitter user “likes” a tweet, the tweet becomes temporarily available to that user’s followers for a period of time, meaning that Ocasio-Cortez’s millions of followers were likely exposed to the anti-American propaganda she promoted.

    Khalek’s claims that Iran “won’t attack civilians” is laughably false as numerous reports from various news organizations and from the United States government state that Iran killed up to 1,500 of its own citizens during the protests that rocked the country late last year.

    The Free Beacon reported that In the Now is “a company funded by the Russian government that was kicked off Facebook for its pro-Russia propaganda.”

    Khalek “previously served as an editor for anti-Israel site The Electronic Intifada but resigned after speaking at a pro-Bashar al-Assad conference in Syria,” the Free Beacon added. “The extent of Khalek’s pro-Iran advocacy was on full display in a recent YouTube livestream in which the activist claimed that ‘Iran is a country that mostly keeps to itself.’ She also said ‘it’s a really brave country that’s been essential to keeping the Middle East stable throughout the last several decades.'”

    But remember, kids, Trump is Putin's stooge.

    Somehow.

    Successful propaganda plays both sides against each other, pitting the ignorant against the ignorant. AOC and Trump are two sides of the same coin in this regard.
