A report shows that the charges against Donald Trump stem from being Trump and his rejection of the Left’s bid for absolute power. They’re not pursuing him, as Trump has said on several occasions. They’re after us, and he’s merely in the way.
As per the report, a 33-year-old Trump voter named Douglass Mackey was criminally charged because of a meme he posted during the 2016 election. Mackey was found guilty of election meddling and faces up to 10 years in jail.
A statement from the Justice Department claims that under the alias Ricky Vaughn, Mackey amassed a following of almost 58,000 people on Twitter. According to research by MIT Media Lab, Mackey was the 107th most influential person in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
The Justice Department didn’t elaborate on what it meant to be the 107th most influential person in the 2016 election or how they arrived at that conclusion.
These are pertinent concerns given that a federal jury in Brooklyn convicted Mackey of Conspiracy Against Rights for his attempt to deny citizens their ability to vote.
Even though the Department of Justice could not present proof that anybody was misled by the meme, they maintained that this was election interference and made the claim that it was illegal.
Mackey said he was only attempting to make a joke go viral, while Clinton backers have posted similar memes urging Trump voters to cast their votes via text without repercussions.
According to a report, a defense expert witness withdrew from testifying after being approached by an SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Center) reporter.
According to the Family Research Council, the SPLC’s “hate group” designations are now often used by major companies to blacklist law-abiding individuals who have unpopular or unorthodox political beliefs. False claims by the SPLC have caused real damage and are now costing the group millions in court settlements.
In 2012, an unstable individual apparently motivated by the SPLC’s rhetoric made an attempt on the lives of several people at the Family Research Council.
