Judge Calls On AOC To Testify Why She Blocked Democrat On Twitter

Liberals went nuts a few years ago when Trump blocked some people on Twitter.

They even sued over it.

Now a similar situation is unfolding for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

The New York Post reports:

Here’s what will get you blocked by AOC on Twitter

An aide to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday said the freshman congresswoman blocks people on Twitter if their input isn’t “constructive” — but a federal judge demanded that she come and explain that herself.

Campaign manager Rebecca Rodriguez laid out Ocasio-Cortez’s online habits as part of a hearing in a lawsuit filed by former Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind, who claims the Democratic darling wrongfully blocked him online over his “criticism” of her.

Hikind, a longtime Jewish leader, is among more than 20 people Ocasio-Cortez has muted online, a decision she makes “if she feels the posts start reaching a point where it’s not constructive, where it’s an attack and where the person becomes so polarizing that she cannot have a conversation with them and they’re amplifying their platform,” explained Rodriguez.

She added that it was Ocasio-Cortez’s “judgment call” to block Hikind but said she did not know the exact reason behind the decision.

But Brooklyn federal Judge Frederic Block wants to hear directly from the prolific tweeter herself.

She is actually being ordered to appear in court to explain.

A Federal Judge Wants Ocasio-Cortez To Explain Why She Blocks Twitter Critics In Court

A federal judge in New York City ordered Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to give testimony in a lawsuit alleging she violated the First Amendment by blocking critics on Twitter.

U.S. District Judge Frederic Block asked for the congresswoman’s testimony during a Thursday hearing in a Brooklyn federal court. After accepting evidence and hearing witness testimony, the judge said the hearing would continue when he could hear from Ocasio-Cortez…

“AOC’s actions violate the First Amendment rights of Mr. Hikind, others like Mr. Hikind, and those who follow the @AOC account and are now deprived of their right to read the speech of the dissenters who have been blocked,” Hikind’s complaint reads.

The left has to live by their own rules.
