America First YouTuber & Congressional Candidate Joey Salads Files Lawsuit Against AOC For Blocking Him on Twitter
YouTube celebrity and Congressional Candidate Joey “Salads” Saladino announced that he is suing Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for blocking him on Twitter.
This development comes in the wake of a federal appeals court ruling that prohibited President Donald Trump from blocking Americans from viewing his Tweets.
The freshman Congresswoman blocked Joey “Salads” Saladino right after he announced his campaign for Congress back in early May.
Saladino stated, “I’m suing AOC because we need to be able to have a strong and vigorous debate between the parties, otherwise our fragile system of ideas and representation breaks down.”
The congressional candidate continued, “Though she is not in a position of power, she is the voice of her generation of Democrat voters, and bigger than some of the Presidential candidates.”
Saladino is suing AOC in his own capacity and not under the banner of the Joseph Saladino for Congress campaign. However, the Saladino for Congress campaign team applauded Saladino for his actions “to encourage true intellectual diversity in the political battleground, especially one as vigorous as New York City.”
According to the campaign, no malice is assigned “to the blocking and hope this is resolved quickly and amicably. Political dialogue must occur across regional boundaries within the United States.”
Saladino stated, “If we can’t talk to one another, the whole system breaks down.”
He highlighted his Never Trump opponents’ recent actions, which BLP covered:
Look what is happening in my district when entrenched NeverTrumpers are confronted by America First ideas. Like it or not we live in the same city and we need to be professional.
Allies of his primary opponent, Nicole Malliotakis, recently smeared Saladino for some of his past content on YouTube.
Saladino remains unfazed despite the political establishment’s attempts to derail him.
The YouTuber is the America First candidate in New York’s 11th District.
Saladino’s 10 million followers on social media across all platforms and over 1 billion views a year offers a new kind of candidate that the GOP needs in order to expand its reach.
