Chaya Raichik, the founder of the wildly popular Libs of TikTok Twitter account, struck back on Friday after being targeted by a prominent House member. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accused Raichik of posting a “lie” that resulted in threats of violence against a Boston hospital.
AOC hurled her charges during House hearings on social media censorship last week that featured former Twitter executive Yoel Roth and other witnesses.

The Squad member specifically noted Libs of TikTok videos that reported the performing of gender transition procedures on minors by Boston Children’s Hospital. These operations included “gender-affirming hysterectomies” and “top surgeries,” or mastectomies.
AOC asked Roth if he was aware that Libs of TikTok “posted false information” concerning the hospital’s medical practices. The former Twitter Head of Trust and Safety responded that he was “aware of that and other claims from the account.”
The far-left representative accused the account of spreading misinformation that was “circulated by other prominent far-right influencers.” This, Ocasio-Cortez added, led to “real-life harassment and ultimately a bomb threat.”
Her tantrum did not go unnoticed.
Raichik refrains from posting her own commentary on Libs of TikTok. Instead, she reposts liberals in their own words, which somehow sparks their rage for having their expressed beliefs exposed to a wider and more skeptical audience.
Speaking on Fox News’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Raichik explained that she believes “that AOC and Yoel Roth were mad that people were able to see the truth.”
She continued by correctly observing that the left is much more upset that people know about the surgeries than the fact that children are being “sterilized and mutilated across the country.”
One of her postings, in fact, came directly from Boston Children’s Hospital. On its website, the facility deemed itself as the “first pediatric and adolescent transgender health program in the United States.”
It further claimed that it “has cared for more than 1,000 families to date.”
Libs of TikTok inspire Democratic rage like few other sources, and one of the primary reasons is that it is virtually unassailable. The account allows the left to speak for itself — unfiltered by its media partners — and that is enough for AOC and others to want to shut it down.
