America has officially crossed the line into totalitarianism. – That’s the only conclusion to draw from yesterday’s arrest by the Department of Justice of a Twitter guy named [checks notes] Douglas Mackey, whose Twitter handle was [checks notes] Ricky Vaughn, for the heinous crime of … wait for it … oh, you gotta wait for this one … POSTING MEMES THE GOVERNMENT DOESN’T APPROVE OF.
No, I am not kidding, and here’s a link to the DOJ Press Release to prove it.
Check out this passage from the release describing Mackey’s “crime”:
Mackey allegedly tweeted an image that featured an African American woman standing in front of an “African Americans for [Hillary]” sign. The image included the following text: “Avoid the Line. Vote from Home. Text ‘[Hillary]’ to 59925[.] Vote for [Hillary] and be a part of history.” The fine print at the bottom of the image stated: “Must be 18 or older to vote. One vote per person. Must be a legal citizen of the United States. Voting by text not available in Guam, Puerto Rico, Alaska or Hawaii. Paid for by [Hillary] for President 2016.” The tweet included the typed hashtags “#Go [Hillary]” and another slogan frequently used by the Candidate.
“Protecting every American citizen’s right to cast a legitimate vote is a key to the success of our republic,” said William F. Sweeney Jr., Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s New York Field Office. “What Mackey allegedly did to interfere with this process – by soliciting voters to cast their ballots via text – amounted to nothing short of vote theft. It is illegal behavior and contributes to the erosion of the public’s trust in our electoral processes. He may have been a powerful social media influencer at the time, but a quick Internet search of his name today will reveal an entirely different story.”
In other words, Mackey is being charged with posting a damn meme that preyed on Hillary Clinton voters in 2016 who were too dimwitted to understand that it was a lame attempt at humor. DOJ accuses him of engaging in vote theft without a shred of evidence that a single person fell for the meme. This is the same DOJ that can’t be bothered to investigate a single instance of the massive, real vote theft that took place in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia and Arizona in this election.
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton herself and her campaign spent $11 million in that 2016 election campaign to pay a British spy to compile a dossier on Donald Trump consisting mainly of false claims that came from Russian spies in order to unfairly influence the election. These spies defrauded the FBI, defrauded members of congress, defrauded the courts and defrauded the American people, all the while being paid by the Clinton campaign and the Democrat National Committee.
All of this is a simple matter of unarguable public record, and the DOJ has seen fit to do nothing to bring her or anyone else involved in that transparent attempt to steal the 2016 election to justice.
While all that was taking place, it is also a matter of unarguable public record that senior officials within the FBI and DOJ writ large mounted an illegal spying and entrapment effort against various members of the 2016 Trump campaign, spending millions of federal government funds in the process, and the DOJ has made ZERO effort to bring any of those Obama/Clinton supporters to justice.
But some clod who posted a meme on Twitter? Yeah, that guy gets indicted strictly because his meme attacked Clinton and her supporters. Make no mistake about this: Had that exact same meme targeted Republican/Trump voters – and there were thousands during the 2016 campaign that did – Mr. Mackey would never have come up on the DOJ’s radar.
Remember John Durham? Where is he now? Where is his “report” that will never come? Where are all the indictments former AG William Barr told us repeatedly could be coming soon? Just as I and many others told you would happen throughout 2020, Durham has been effectively disappeared from the public space, his grand jury disbanded if it ever existed at all, and is no doubt just playing out the string until he is fired and replaced with some Biden flunky.
But this Douglas Mackey guy – who admittedly appears to be a repugnant human being – posted a meme the Pantsuit Princess didn’t like, so the full weight of the DOJ is brought down upon him.
Washington, DC is a police state, with 11,000 National Guard personnel still controlling everyone’s movements around the city and a non-scalable fence topped by barbed wire still surrounding the Capitol Building, and the DOJ is arresting people for Twitter memes. All of this to protect an elderly dementia patient who stole an election and rules by executive edict, supported by a Nazi-style media propaganda establishment and big tech oligarchs who are systematically shutting down any voices who dare to dissent.
This is not America anymore. We have lost freedom of speech. We have lost freedom of religion. We have lost freedom of assembly. We have lost the right to petition our government directly. We have lost the freedom from unreasonable search and seizure. The Deep State/DC Swamp/Nazi Media/Big Tech alliance have stolen all of that from us in a virtual blink of an eye.
This is what a totalitarian state looks like. This is what we have become.
That is all.
