FBI Confronts Woman Over Twitter Post
« on: March 18, 2023, 05:54:09 PM »
I can't find her twitter post, but she apparently told people to fight back against Pfizer, and then the FBI showed up at her work asking her if she planned on harming Pfizer. She said ""No, because you can't physically harm a corporation". One of the agents said, "but you can harm a building." Tell that to antifa in Portland, I guess, who the FBI were not interviewing.

Even if she said, "Kill Pfizer", how many times do people say stuff like that on social media? I saw a lot of tweets calling for Elon Musk's death when he took over twitter, but I don't recall hearing about the FBI visiting those individuals. There certainly could be more to this, but the FBI paying people a visit is still pretty police state.

Be better if the photo showed their credentials even if it was blurred. 

From what I have seen/heard, there are hundreds if not thousands of threats put on Twitter per day.  Makes zero sense to send agents out on something like that.  This also means they got her name, location, place of work, etc.

You can’t expect to reference the Democrat Party’s most profitable arm in a way that could vaguely be interpreted as a threat without expecting a visit from the government ran Mafia now, can you?

If you're going to record it, why redact faces and identities of the public officials involved?

The way "they" keep morphing definitions to suit their purposes, it won't be long before the word "harming" becomes a legislatively-defined death threat with attendant penalties.

"Terry, that's ridiculous!"

"You fail to have seen them change ordinary words into semantically negative terms in the past fifteen-twenty years," Terry responded.

"They're pretty good at using that tool," he added, shrugging.
