The owner of Libs of TikTok, Chaya Raichik, hit back at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for calling her a liar during a House Oversight Committee hearing. Raichik, during an appearance on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” accused AOC of wanting to silence her because the truth is inconvenient to the congresswoman.
AOC called Raichik a liar while she was questioning Yoel Roth, the former Head of Trust & Safety at Twitter, during the hearing. AOC asked Roth if he was aware of alleged lies spread by the Libs of TikTok Twitter account.
AOC accused Libs of TikTok of posting false information when it revealed that Boston Children’s Hospital was performing a video posted by the Libs of TikTok account which showed staff at Boston Children’s Hospital performing hysterectomies on children.

What makes AOC’s claim more bizarre is the fact the account did not make any claim other than posting a video where staff at the hospital admitted to carrying out the gender mutilation procedure on minor children.

Raichik, however, got her chance to respond to AOC’s wild and ridiculous claims when she appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight.
“I believe that AOC and Yoel Roth were mad that people were able to see the truth. It’s very concerning that they’re more upset about people knowing that these surgeries are happening to children than the fact that these children are getting these surgeries,” Raichik told Carlson during her appearance on the show. “I mean, children are being sterilized and mutilated across the country in a lot of hospitals. And they’re just more mad that we know about it.”
Raichik agreed with Carlson that AOC’s false accusation is a clear example of government officials making a case for censorship. She added that it is very concerning that government officials like AOC and the FBI have been coordinating with big tech companies to silence those who dare speak the truth.
“And the truth is that the truth is not hateful or harmful or dangerous like they claim. They like to label me a terrorist. It’s just the truth is inconvenient to them, and that’s why they want to silence it,”
