AOC wants the military to stop recruiting with esports

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., proposed a measure Wednesday to ban armed forces from using funds to maintain “a presence on Twitch.tv or any video game, esports or live-streaming platform.”

Twitch is a massive livestreaming platform used by millions of people every day, but Ocasio-Cortez said she didn’t think the military should be recruiting through video games streamed on the website.

“It’s incredibly irresponsible for the Army and the Navy to be recruiting impressionable young people and children via live streaming platforms,” Ocasio-Cortez told Vice. “War is not a game, and the Marine Corps’ decision not to engage in this recruiting tool should be a clear signal to the other branches of the military to cease this practice entirely.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s office did not immediately respond to a Fox Business request for comment Thursday.
