The two met recently when Raichik tried to hand AOC an ethics complaint for having lied about her on the floor of Congress, and then attempted to take a photo with her. It was a moment before Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez realized who Raichik was and refused to take a photo with her, calling her "super transphobic."
When the footage of the botched meet-up was shared online by a trans activist who herself has testified before congress, who remarked "AOC told Chaya Raichik aka libs of tiktok that she's transphobic straight to her face when she ran into her."
"You bet I did," AOC said, quote tweeting the clip with pride. "NYC doesn't play with bigots and transphobes and neither do I. Have a great day!"
In response, commentator Niko House said to AOC: "But you vote to send money to Nazis and to fund the Israeli apartheid. But hey, at least you stood up to a TikTok star." House was likely referring to AOC's voting in favor of US aid for Ukraine.
An account called Zaza Demon, @zazasmoka, commented back "Lol and what makes you think that i did anything to support nazis? You're delusional. Seek help."
Zaza Demon replied in the first person as though she were AOC, which revealed that @zazasmoka could very well be AOC's burner account, which is the term for a second, anon account that high-profile people may use to navigate social media without detection.
Zaza Demon's tweet was then deleted. House posted about the potential discovery that AOC had been accidentally logged in to her burner account when she replied as herself.
House was then blocked by that account, and the account was later deleted.
"YOOOOO!!!," House wrote, "AOC has burne[r] accounts. I responded to one of her posts reminding her that she sends money to Nazis, and some random account responded to me speaking in first person as if I attacked them. Then that same person DELETED the tweets"
"You're actually super transphobic and I never want to share space with you," AOC told Raichik.
AOC had spoken on the House floor about Raichik, asking former Twitter head of Trust and Safety Yoel Roth if he was familiar with the account, and the account's activities from August 2022.
It was during this time that the story broke that Boston Children's Hospital was performing surgical sex changes on minor persons under 18. On their website, they posted informative intake forms showing the guidelines for vaginoplasties for boys, double mastectomies for girls, and phalloplasties for girls.
Boys were recommended to have the castrating, sterilizing procedure performed as young as 17 years old, while the guidelines for girls to have their breasts cosmetically removed state that 15 is the youngest they recommend. Girls wanting a phallus constructed out of flesh from their arm or thigh would have to wait until they are 18. Many in media ran cover for the hospital after the revelations.
Libs of TikTok shared a promotional video from Boston Children's Hospital explaining how "gender affirming hysterectomies" are performed. The account noted that these hysterectomies are performed on "young girls."
AOC questioned Roth about Libs of TikTok, which she said "posted false information about Boston Children's Hospital claiming that they were providing hsyterectomies for children?" Roth said he was aware of it.
"Are you aware that this lie was then circulated by other far-right influencers?" She continued. AOC insisted that the claims, which she incorrectly cited, were false and led to a campaign of harassment against the hospital.
Raichik did not say children, however, she said "young girls," and that is held up by the promotional videos from Boston Children's Hospital's own ad campaign for their gender clinic, which serves children before they reach puberty all the way up to 26 years old, which is the terminus point for children to be covered under their parents' health insurance policies.
If the burner account is in fact hers, AOC has lashed out at others who oppose child sex changes, as well, including The Daily Wire's Matt Walsh.
Zaza Demon responded to Walsh's tweet that the move to eradicate the definitions of male and female, to put children and teens through experimental sex change procedures, and to erase concepts of male and female as biological realities, "is the greatest evil our country faces."
"You are hateful little freak and i cant wait until you piss off a trans person that actually is as unhinged as you claim to say they all are," Zaza Demon replied. "Can't be a bigot if you're no longer breathing :)"
An archive"> of the account shows a tweet from April 2, reading: "Wow the schizophrenic twitter guy cracked the code yes im aoc or whatever ooooo im in your walls."
It is unclear if @zazasmoka is for sure AOC.
