Video: Remember Mini AOC? She's Back with 2 Absolutely Hilarious Videos

If you happen to be a politically inclined Twitter user, it’s more than likely your feed has been graced in recent months by videos of a young Latina with bold red lipstick and glasses too big for her face making foolish statements about the benefits of socialism.

If you happen to be a conservative, the chances are those videos have brought you some serious joy.

Now, you’re probably about to ask, “What joy could I possibly derive from viewing the endless stream of political and economic ignorance spewed by Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?”

But before you ask, we aren’t talking about the unbearable freshman congresswoman from Queens, New York.

We’re talking about her pint-sized impersonator, Ava Martinez — better known as “Mini AOC.”

Martinez was becoming a viral sensation earlier this summer, massing thousands of followers with her spot-on impression of Ocasio-Cortez.

Unfortunately, all that was cut short when some on the left started making death threats to the grade-school child and her mother, who often worked the camera for the social media personality’s adorable and heartwarming videos.

Has the left's aggressive outrage culture killed comedy?

Understanding the real threat of the modern progressive mob, Ava’s mother pulled the account from the internet in early July.

But luckily for adoring fans, and anyone with a sense of humor, Ava and her mother have decided to release a reel of bloopers and outtakes from Mini AOC’s hilarious hits.

Apparently, the pair missed making the videos and felt it was necessary to cut through America’s “awkward” politics and help the internet “lighten up.”

Ava’s mother had toyed with the idea on Twitter last week, suggesting that it was time to “#MALA” — presumed to mean “Make America Laugh Again.”

“Anyone interested in MINI AOC outtakes? 🙋‍♀️ We miss the fun and YOU need the laughs. #MALA When politics get toooooo awkward even for adults, leave it up to a child to help you lighten up,” Martinez wrote.

Other tweets made by Ava’s mother in recent weeks seem to suggest that her daughter’s adoring public has attempted to send monetary donations to the family to support her future education, but Ava asked that fans instead donate to St. Jude Children’s Hospital in her name.

Despite the support and overwhelming outcry for more content, however, it seems Mini AOC is not making a return to the internet.

It’s a shameful commentary on our modern public discourse, and on leftists’ willingness to use threats and public acts of aggression to silence not only their serious political opponents but also those who oppose them only in jest.

Even if those “opponents” are schoolchildren.
