Just a few weeks ago, a federal judge decided that Pres. Trump couldn’t block his critics on Twitter, which set forth new precedence for public officials being told they have to accept the constant bombardment of hate speech and threats via social media.
The judge felt that Pres. Trump was using his personal account as an extension of the official POTUS account which cited in the ruling.
Dov Hikind, a former NY Assemblyman, sued Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for doing the same thing and now AOC wants the lawsuit dismissed.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has asked a federal judge to dismiss former Assemblyman Dov Hikind’s lawsuit against her for blocking him on Twitter.
The Bronx-Queens congresswoman claims Hikind “lacks standing to bring the action” and says she hasn’t been properly served with the suit, according to court papers filed Wednesday.
Hikind sued Ocasio-Cortez last month in Brooklyn federal court, claiming the Democratic darling blocked him on Twitter because of his “criticism” of her.
He claimed the move was in violation of his First Amendment rights, citing a recent ruling by a federal appeals court in New York that found President Trump’s practice of blocking critics on Twitter was unconstitutional. [NY Post]
Trump has over 60 million followers on Twitter from his original account, created in 2009 under the “@realDonaldTrump,” years before he became president. His username is separate from the official presidential account, a point that his attorneys raised, but that didn’t satisfy the judge’s decision.
AOC is in the same boat and should be under the same rules.
What I enjoy about the AOC is that she’s always wrong, but never in doubt. She is a constant reminder of just how ignorant someone can be that only liberal democrats believe her, and the amount of savvy she needs to realize the extent of her ignorance. In other words, AOC will never fully understand that what happened to President Trump must happen to her–by law, not because she’s the leader or a member of the “fraud squad” or a liberal democrat. And she can call everyone a “racist” and anti-Puerto Rican and anti-immigrant–and whatever else she wants, but she is breaking the law and court will rule against her…not matter how much she screams or cries or lies or schemes.
Democrats make laws regarding various things (filibuster comes to mind) but, now cry about the laws that they instituted which kind of cramps their style. Anybody in the real world would be way behind prison bars for the crimes Hillary Clinton, James Comey, John Brennan, etc. (the list is too extensive to name each one) committed. Heck, it already seems as if James Comey is already off the hook for one of his shenanigans.
AOC needs to quit demanding. Does she think that her demands are noted? Why doesn’t she quit while she’s ahead? Better yet get out of our government business, she’s not qualified to be a lawmaker.
