It’s a sad day in America when young children doing funny things can garner death threats from political extremists.
We have been divided, folks. We have been taught by the media that there is only “left versus right”, and that your totality as a human being must conform to one of these polar regions. It’s absurd, of course, but we can’t escape that input in our daily lives without going off the grid entirely. This is simply a built-in false dichotomy that oppresses us beyond reproach.
Worse still – enormous corporations are profiting by propping up this phony divide.
The mainstream media uses the chaos of the left-versus-right paradigm to sell advertising space and make fortunes from the corporations who want our eyes on their products. Nike has even used this disunity to sell sneakers, using Colin Kaepernick and the American flag as fulcrums on their see-saws of “marketing” and “anti-marketing”.
Outrage sells – don’t ever forget it.
Beyond the financial trickery, however, are real and disturbing repercussions. We are growing violent in America due to this manufactured cultural chasm. We are lashing out in ways that civility should never allow.
There are some among us who have even taken to threatening death upon an elementary school student for her political parody impression of a freshman Congresswoman.
The 8-year-old child actor who went viral for impersonating Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, is no longer going to make videos due to death threats and harassment she and her family have received.
Earlier this year, Ava Martinez, known as “Mini AOC,” brought joy to her fans with several videos poking fun at the socialist darling, collecting millions of views on social media.
However, the fun came to a screeching halt on Wednesday when Martinez’s family announced that she would no longer be impersonating Ocasio-Cortez and that all the videos created would be removed.
The family’s shocking announcement was made via Twitter:
Ava will not being doing any more MINI AOC content.
The Left's Harassment and death threats have gone too far for our family. We have been getting calls on our personal phone numbers.
For our safety and for our child's safety, we deleted all Mini AOC accounts.

This is what radicalization looks like inside of a society. It’s a breakdown of social norms, and a return to the “lizard-brained” idea that violence can be used to silence those with whom you disagree with.
That’s bad enough on its own, but to lash out and threaten an eight year old girl because you don’t like her making fun of a politician? That is simply deplorable.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
