Thousands of troops patrol the Capitol while Democrats prepare to put the opposition party leader on political trial.
In his inaugural address, Joe Biden declared 75,000,000 Americans are white supremacists and domestic terrorists.
And now Joe Biden began rounding up Trump supporters with this FBI arrest.
Acting U.S. attorney in Brooklyn, Seth DuCharme, announced the FBI arrested 31-year-old Trump supporter Doug Mackey who was known as the prominent pro-Trump Twitter account posting under the alias “Ricky Vaughn”—a nod to Charlie Sheen’s character from the popular ‘80s movie “Major League”—during the 2016 election.
Prosecutors claimed Vaughn’s crime was posting memes online that the feds alleged tried to trick Democrat voters into casting ballots by text message.
“With Mackey’s arrest, we serve notice that those who would subvert the democratic process in this manner cannot rely on the cloak of Internet anonymity to evade responsibility for their crimes,” DuCharme declared.
Mackey now faces 10 years in prison, but his arrest just one week after Joe Biden and his cadre of loyalists assumed control of the Department of Justice struck many Americans as the Biden administration unleashing the full force and power of federal law enforcement on their political opponents.
Murtaza M. Hussain of the left-wing Intercept worried that this “Arrest for social media posts from 2016 suggests that there was a file sitting around on this person that could be activated if political circumstances called for it. U.S. Capitol attack perhaps a precipitating event like September 11th for dusting off things to show action.”
MSNBC’s far-left primetime host Chris Hayes agreed that the suspicious timing of the arrest suggested the Biden administration engaged in retaliation against their political opponents.
“Yeah I’ve got some questions about why this case wasn’t brought sooner,” Hayes wrote in response to Hussain on social media.
In an article announcing the charges, the Washington Post all but admitted the Justice Department and the FBI waited for Donald Trump to be out of office to begin arresting his supporters.
“The Justice Department under President Donald Trump faced extensive criticism from the president and other Republicans for pursuing criminal cases connected to the 2016 election — most notably the investigation led by Robert S. Mueller III, who spent two years examining Russia’s interference in that presidential contest and whether anyone in Trump’s campaign conspired with those efforts,” the Washington Post reported.
In the complaint, the Justice Department presented no actual evidence anyone supposedly duped by Mackey’s meme didn’t end up casting a real ballot.
The statute prosecutors cited to arrest Mackey was originally intended to prevent the Klan and other violent groups from forcibly preventing black Americans from voting.
But the timing and nature of the arrest—Mackey was best known for posting goofy memes such as photoshopping a red MAGA hat on pop star Taylor Swift’s head—suggested to both liberals and conservatives that in Joe Biden’s America, the First Amendment was suspended for anyone that disagreed with the Democrat Party and that there would be a government crackdown on Joe Biden’s political opponents.
