Liberal darling and New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just broke the law in plain sight and there is no way she can defend herself about it either.
The little liberal who adores preaching about love and tolerance blocked conservative journalist Ryan Saavedra on Friday.
Seriously, it is not that big of a deal but it is now since the left went after President Trump for blocking people who were rude on his Twitter feed.
Now, judges have ruled that a politician blocking someone on Twitter is now not allowed by law, making it a crime.
U.S. District Court Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald explained Trump’s Twitter account is properly thought of as a “public forum” from which users may not be excluded on the basis of their views.
“We hold that portions of the @realDonaldTrump account — the “interactive space” where Twitter users may directly engage with the content of the President’s tweets — are properly analyzed under the ‘public forum’ doctrines set forth by the Supreme Court, that such space is a designated public forum, and that the blocking of the plaintiffs based on their political speech constitutes viewpoint discrimination that violates the First Amendment,” the decision reads.
For purposes of the First Amendment, a public forum is an open space reserved for free exchange or expression of opinion. Government interference in such spaces is subject to a high degree of judicial scrutiny.
The Democrats make the rules and now they have to abide by them just like the rest of us.
I am sure you are wondering what could have spurred AOC’s reaction to block Saavedra, right? Well, it all started with a single tweet and you can guess how this turned out.
Saavedra had the nerve to question AOC’s accent she used last week.
Ocasio-Cortez claims that she used the same accent during her "Women’s March & Kavanaugh speech"
This is a lie.
Accurately reporting on what she said and how she said it is not a "conspiracy mill"

That caused AOC to come out swinging.
“Folks talking about my voice can step right off. Women’s March & Kavanaugh speech, same.
“Any kid who grew up in a distinct linguistic culture & had to learn to navigate class enviros at school/work knows what’s up.
“My Spanish is the same way. These conspiracy mills are (trash emoji),” but Saavedra’s evidence left her with nowhere to hide.

I guess she should go ahead an unblock Saavedra.
