AOC Goes Full Authoritarian: Calls for Archive of 'Trump Sycophants' for 'Complicity in the Future'

This should come as absolutely no surprise to anyone with at least one eye, one ear and a half-way functioning brain, but far-left "progressive" Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) revealed her authoritarian nature on Friday by posing the question of whether anyone on the left is "archiving these [President Donald] Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future."

First, what does "complicity in the future" even mean? And when she says "foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos," she doesn't indicate how that would occur. Would the authoritarian left - including those in charge at Twitter and Facebook - be the arbiters of what and who gets erased? Does this mean that the left's tactic of "cancel culture" would become more prevalent and be Big Tech's modus operandi going forward? Or is she intimating that "Trump sycophants" will delete their own social media posts?

Whatever the case might be, a former Obama administration analyst confirmed that they already have a website which has kept track of anyone associated with the Trump administration. Michael Simon, a Twitter blue checkmark that claims to have been an analyst for the Obama administration, shared the website

The website, which houses the Trump Accountability Project, claims to welcome Trump supporters but slams the Trump administration for pretty much every talking point the left has used against Trump over the last four years.

We should welcome in our fellow Americans with whom we differ politically. Tens of millions of Americans voted for Donald Trump, and they are entitled to have their votes counted and to have their opinions heard. We may disagree, but wish them well.

But the world should never forget those who, when faced with a decision, chose to put their money, their time, and their reputations behind separating children from their families, encouraging racism and anti-Semitism, and negligently causing the unnecessary loss of life and economic devastation from our country's failed response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The website has multiple lists of who they're keeping track of, which seemingly doesn't consist of any garden variety, everyday Trump supporter. The list includes anyone affiliated with the Trump administration in both 2016 and 2020, among others.

"Individuals who supported Trump, but publicly denounced the Trump campaign and/or Administration prior to Election Day 2020," a Trump Accountability Project website's Google document read.

After receiving quite a bit of pushback from some on Twitter for her seemingly communist tactic of putting people on lists, Ocasio-Cortez doubled down by posting a subsequent tweet laughing at those who might have been "upset at the idea of being responsible for their behavior over last four years."


So who's there to keep Ocasio-Cortez accountable, even when she throws a child-like temper tantrum on the House floor?
