Ok the lsm is saying he tricked close to 5k people into an invalid vote by text scheme. That's very different than posting a cartoon or meme although this is clearly a witchhunt. The truth is probably in the middle.
tricked close to 5k people into an invalid vote by text scheme.
mell saystricked close to 5k people into an invalid vote by text scheme."... but not enough to change the outcome of the election. Case dismissed!"

How is it possible that the FBI sat on this for four years and is prosecuting only now?Could it be that the FBI is not interested in enforcing the law, but persecuting political enemies?Could it be?Now how can we have any faith in law enforcement?
a pro-Trump meme maker (artist), who now faces a 10-year sentence for posting a comical image four years earlier.
The Department of Justice is showing that it has become a political weapon in the earliest days of the Biden Presidency. The F.B.I. has arrested a pro-Trump meme maker (artist), who now faces a 10-year sentence for posting a comical image four years earlier. They are outright beginning to arrest people for political speech. His graphic supposedly interfered with the election, meanwhile they actually have video of people tampering with ballots for the other side.
The complaint alleges that in 2016, Mackey established an audience on Twitter with approximately 58,000 followers. A February 2016 analysis by the MIT Media Lab ranked Mackey as the 107th most important influencer of the then-upcoming Election, ranking his account above outlets and individuals such as NBC News (#114), Stephen Colbert (#119) and Newt Gingrich (#141).As alleged in the complaint, between September 2016 and November 2016, in the lead up to the Nov. 8, 2016, U.S. Presidential Election, Mackey conspired with others to use social media platforms, including Twitter, to disseminate fraudulent messages designed to encourage supporters of one of the presidential candidates (the “Candidate”) to “vote” via text message or social media, a legally invalid method of voting.For example, on Nov. 1, 2016, Mackey allegedly tweeted an image that featured an African American woman standing in front of an “African Americans for [the Candidate]” sign. The image included the following text: “Avoid the Line. Vote from Home. Text ‘[Candidate’s first name]’ to 59925[.] Vote for [the Candidate] 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 [Candidate] for President 2016.”The tweet included the typed hashtags “#Go [Candidate]” and another slogan frequently used by the Candidate. On or about and before Election Day 2016, at least 4,900 unique telephone numbers texted “[Candidate’s first name]” or some derivative to the 59925 text number, which was used in multiple deceptive campaign images tweeted by the defendant and his co-conspirators.
but have we reached open tyranny?
Onvacation saysbut have we reached open tyranny?We reached it decades ago. Ever see the "free speech zones" during the 2nd Iraq War?The country actually ended on September 11, 2001. If you can't accept and see this, well, you can't accept and see it.
