AOC poses for picture with Libs of TikTok creator, then storms off when she realizes who she is

By Kristine Parks | Fox News | Published March 30, 2023 12:25pm EDT


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., stormed off after being accused of lying by Libs of TikTok creator Chaya Raichik in the Capitol on Thursday, calling her “super transphobic” for good measure. Raichik had just filed an ethics complaint at the congresswoman’s office, saying the “Squad” member had defamed her during a Feb. 8 House Oversight and Accountability Committee hearing. 

The Libs of TikTok creator then spotted the Democrat walking through the Capitol and seized the opportunity to confront her. Raichik apparently had not yet revealed her identity. After cozying up to take an apparent picture, Raichik told Ocasio-Cortez who she was.


“I just delivered an ethics complaint to your office because you lied about me in a committee hearing,” Raichik said.

Ocasio-Cortez immediately backed away and said, “I actually didn’t, because you’re actually super transphobic and I never want to share a space with you. Thank you!”

She then walked away.

The Democrat claimed that Raichik lied in a 2022 tweet when she said Boston Children’s Hospital was “now offering ‘gender-affirming hysterectomies’ for young girls.”  Raichik had shared videos from the children’s hospital where doctors said they offered “gender-affirming hysterectomies.”

“Are you aware… that from August 11th to August 16th that account posted false information about Boston Children’s Hospital claiming that they were providing hysterectomies to children?” Ocasio-Cortez asked a former Twitter executive about that tweet.

Last week, Raichik was unsuccessful at finding the Democrat at her Capitol Hill office to confront her.

The Heritage Foundation asked the Office of Congressional Ethics this week to open an investigation into the Democrat on Raichik’s behalf for “falsely accusing” and “defaming” the creator of the Libs of TikTok Twitter account. The nine-page complaint defends Raichik’s view that Boston Children’s Hospital performs gender-affirming hysterectomies on young girls.

Ocasio-Cortez’s office did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.

Libs of TikTok children’s story hour canceled over threats amid violent protests at similar conservative events

A children’s book event hosted by Chaya Raichik, a conservative author who runs the @LibsOfTikTok account, has been canceled over threats.

“We have received threats of potentially inappropriate and unsafe behavior at the NYC story hour with Chaya Raichik on Sunday,” Raichik’s publisher tweeted Friday.

“[We] have advised Chaya we cancel the event. With children involved, we don’t want to take any chances.”

The publisher also vowed to “find a way to combat this moving forward” and advised people to “stay tuned for an announcement in the coming days.”

The event, which was to be held Sunday, was billed as a rival event to a drag queen story hour hosted by New York Attorney General Letitia James on the same day, Fox News Digital reported. Raichik’s now-canceled event was sponsored by the publisher and the New York Young Republican Club, according to its EventBrite listing.

Christian actor and author Kirk Cameron’s Freedom Island Tour book event with Brave Books was crashed by protesters at a public library in Fayetteville, Arkansas Friday, the publisher and the Post Millennial reported.

“This hateful group, dressed to disturb children, were angry when Kirk Cameron brought up God and faith with the children and parents during our BRAVE story hour,” the publisher tweeted.

The tweet includes a video where one of the costumed protesters appears to say he stepped on a “poor tiny blonde white girl.” The video cuts away to a woman confirming the person stepped on her twice and hit her with a cane.

Brave Books is not alone among publishers whose conservative authors have been heckled, threatened, or assaulted.

“I understand their hesitation and decision to cancel,” Bethany Mandel, co-author of “Stolen Youth,” told TheBlaze Sunday morning.

“It’s one thing to assume risk as an adult, but the equation changes when there are young children involved,” Mandel also said.

Mandel and co-author New York Post columnist Karol Markowicz had protesters at their New York City book party March 8. Mandel, who had her 2-month-old infant with her at the party, tells TheBlaze protesters violently threw glasses and screamed at attendees.

“There’s an element of danger to just putting out a conservative book,” Mandel said. “Now, the situation is that children can attend drag queen story hours in bars, but not a party for an orthodox Jewish author for a wholesome book about safety.”

Woman behind Libs of TikTok writes children’s book that ‘will give parents and children a tool they can use to spot predatory behavior’

By: ALEX NITZBERG | February 27, 2023

Chaya Raichik, the woman behind the Libs of TikTok Twitter account, has authored a children’s book meant to help teach kids to trust their parents and not keep secrets from them.

“If an adult tells a child to keep a secret from their parents, that’s a huge red flag. I wrote a kid’s book which will give parents and children a tool they can use to spot predatory behavior. My goal is to get this book into as many homes, schools, and libraries in this country as possible!” she tweeted on the Libs of TikTok Twitter account.

The forthcoming book, titled “No More Secrets: The Candy Cavern,” targets 4- to 8-year-old kids.

“My book is a colorful, modern-day take on the classic, Little Red Riding Hood,” Raichik wrote. “It is a fun, beautifully illustrated and age-appropriate story about a sheep named Rose who starts second grade with a new teacher, Mr. Wooly. He suspiciously convinces his students to eat candy and treats everyday at school while telling them to keep it a secret from their parents. Mr. Wooly uses phrases like, ‘don’t worry about what your parents said,’ ‘you can trust me,’ and ‘my class is a safe space.’ These are the very phrases that predators in authority positions use on children. Without a strong foundation of trust in her family, Rose may not have felt that twinge of uncertainty alarming her that something was off.”

Raichik uses the Libs of TikTok Twitter account to expose the activity and musings of radical leftists, often by reposting the videos that leftists themselves have shared online.

Seth Dillon, who is the CEO of the popular satire site the Babylon Bee, announced last year that he made a deal with Raichik that would “turn her heroic, high-risk work into a career” — he noted that he “personally” made the deal, and the Bee was not involved.

Dillon recently noted that Slack had permanently suspended service for Libs of TikTok: “If your business is defending kids, Slack doesn’t want your money,” he tweeted.

Raichik is scheduled to speak at the upcoming CPAC conference.

Tucker Carlson STUNNED when he hears what Ron DeSantis said to Libs of TikTok creator

On “The Rubin Report,” BlazeTV host Dave Rubin shared a clip of Libs of TikTok creator Chaya Raichik telling Tucker Carlson about the stunning offer Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) made to her after she was doxxed and threatened.

“When I was doxxed, someone from Ron DeSantis’ team called me … and she said, ‘The governor wanted me to give you a message. He said if you don’t feel safe, you or your family, if you need a place to go to hide, to stay, you can come to the governor’s mansion.’ He said, ‘We have a guest house for you, and you can come and stay as long as you need,” Raichik said during an appearance on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Today.”

“The governor of Florida did this?” asked a clearly stunned Carlson.

“Yes,” Raichik confirmed. “I was almost in tears.”

“And you were living in California?” Carlson asked, still agog.

“I [was] living in California and [DeSantis] took time out of his, I’m assuming, extremely busy schedule … to send someone to call me to make sure I’m safe,” explained Raichik.

Leftists Call Free Speech ‘Violence’ To Mute Critics of Barbaric Transgender Surgeries for Kids

We simply cannot allow the left to keep bullying critics of their agenda by accusing us of causing violence.

The Human Rights Campaign, an LGBT advocacy organization, has targeted conservative commentator Matt Walsh of The Daily Wire; the person who runs the Libs of TikTok Twitter account; and Seth Dillon, CEO of the satire site The Babylon Bee, accusing them of causing violence in a new report titled “Online Harassment, Offline Violence.

The report argues, “Anti-equality, online extremists are leading a proactive and coordinated campaign of hate against hospitals and medical providers who offer gender-affirming care for transgender, non-binary and questioning youth.”

The report states it consists of “an informal exploration across Facebook and Twitter” that identifies “24 different hospitals and providers, across 21 states, who were directly attacked online following harassing, inflammatory and misleading posts from Libs of TikTok, Matt Walsh, and other right-wing accounts.”

Relying on misleading allegations of “lies” and “misinformation,” the report draws a line of causation from Libs of TikTok posting a video from a particular hospital detailing its own practices to inevitable online outrage resulting in angry tweets, emails, and phone calls from individuals, causing the hospital to stop youth-oriented transgender advocacy and/or practices and ultimately resulting in legislative efforts to ban the practices in the first place. The report gives examples of hospitals and doctors receiving hostile or angry communications, threats, and specifically, the false bomb threats against Boston Children’s Hospital.

The report insists, “What occurred in Boston is just one example of coordinated campaigns of hate, violence, and harassment being waged both online and offline against health care providers and children’s hospitals simply for providing age-appropriate, best practice, medically necessary medical care to transgender youth.” However, its claim of offline violence remains abstract and assumed. It provides no examples of actual violence.

Accusations of Hate Speech

Detailing what it argues is a coordinated campaign to target pro-LGBT organizations, the report notes: “hate speech accounts such as Libs of TikTok or Matt Walsh, a known transphobe at the alt-right news site The Daily Wire, post an inflammatory message full of disinformation about gender affirming care and call out a specific hospital or doctor by name.” The alleged campaign continues with “right-wing politicians looking to rile up the most extreme members of their base join in spreading the same transphobic rhetoric from their platforms, in some cases going so far as to introduce legislation to regulate children’s hospitals and gender affirming care providers.

The final “stage” of these campaigns involves hospitals discontinuing transition practices for minors or legislative efforts that heavily regulate or ban said practices. The report concludes by placing responsibility on social media companies, arguing, “Social media companies have a responsibility to act and to not be bystanders while angry mobs intimidate LGBTQ+ people and our allies into silence.” Continuing, “Without intervention from social media companies, this will just lead to more hate speech, more threats, and more violence.

Again, without citing any actual examples of violence, the report’s implication is that all negative interactions, from tweets to illegal activity like bomb threats, are essentially equal. The report’s authors then go further by arguing direct causation between the posting of information and the dangerous response. Their conclusion is that authorities must prevent or punish those posting the original information, which allegedly “caused” the violence.

Attempt to Silence Criticism

While obviously any form of violence or threats against an individual or organization is wrong and should be handled by the authorities, the popular left-wing argument that responsibility falls to commentators is absurd — even more so as the targets of their anger quite literally share the information left-wing activists post themselves. What the Human Rights Campaign and other LGBT activists stubbornly refuse to consider is that the outrage and anger are perfectly justifiable. Despite activists’ best efforts, many people reasonably view transgender surgeries on minors as barbaric and destructive.

What these organizations are attempting to do is stigmatize anyone who participates in such criticism by accusing them of contributing to any potential violence that may occur. More to the point, they want to intimidate conservative commentators to prevent them from discussing or sharing provocative LGBT activism, often in their own words, in a way that will result in criticism or outrage. So convinced they are morally justified, they view the natural result of the public viewing this information with outrage and legislative pushback as inherently violent and hateful.

In truth, what we see is the very nature of the democracy they champion in action. A children’s hospital boasts of performing elective double-mastectomies on teenagers as young as 15, as the Boston Children’s Hospital does on its website, and the public is rationally outraged. They express their outrage to the hospital and to their elected representatives, who introduce legislation. The left typically champions public protest and the targeting of organizations with phone calls, tweets, and emails when they disagree with a policy or product decision. Such action only appears to become “violence” and “hate” when the left supports what an organization is doing.

In terms of “causing” things like fake bomb threats or threatening voicemails, the idea that illegal behavior from one individual is the fault of a completely unrelated individual is dangerous and irrational. Libs of TikTok sharing a video produced by a children’s hospital is not a direct link to an unstable person calling in a bomb threat later on. Only the person making the call is responsible. Whatever motivated them to do so is entirely within their control. We simply cannot allow the left to continue bullying critics of their agenda by accusing us of causing violence by doing so.
