In AOC’s latest example of incoherency and illogic, she tweeted, "Lmao at a billionaire earnestly trying to sell people on the idea that ‘free speech’ is actually a $8/mo subscription plan."
Currently, this tweet has over 300,000 likes. Not encouraging.
But many Twitter users are pointing out how imbecilic it is. After all, the $8 a month is only for verification, not the right to tweet.
An entrepreneur and former AOC supporter, KimDotCom, tweeted, “It’s an optional premium service. You know the difference between Elon and billionaires who charge a subscription fee for their fake news sites? You can still use Twitter free of charge, now without free speech limitations imposed by Dems, you proxy war supporting false prophet.”
Harsh but true. Why is AOC not mad that Jeff Bezos owns The Washington Post? Perhaps because they share the same politics?

AOC was diminishing free speech by putting it in quotation marks, but people mocked and corrected her for misunderstanding the meaning.
Ben Shapiro mansplained it: “‘Free speech’ does not mean that services must be free of charge. You use your phone for free speech but you also pay for the phone plan.”
He then posted a meme of AOC crying over having to pay for the song “Free Bird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Get it? The logo for Twitter is a bird. And when Musk finalized his purchase, he tweeted, “the bird is freed.”
The left has shown its true colors with Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover, previously claiming it was a private company and can do whatever it wants, but now freaking out that they’ve lost control of it. Hypocritical authoritarians.
