Police visited the L.A. home of a podcaster this week a day after after he posted a tweet criticizing AOC and her comments on Israel and Palestine.

Ryan Wentz runs the online show Soapbox and tweets under the handle Queelamode.

On April 7, he posted a link to an interview where AOC stumbled and struggled to answer questions on how to resolve peace in the Middle East. Wentz called her answers 'incredibly underwhelming'.

The next day, two California Highway Patrol officers visited him at home in L.A. to caution him for allegedly threatening a member of congress.

He claims the cops said they had received a call from Capitol Police that he had 'threatened' the New York congresswoman. They left him their card but took no further action.

'The officers said, "We got a warning about a sitting member of Congress. And it was because of your tweet, which tagged them in it."

Wow, this does look like an extreme abuse of police power.

They didn't go see him because of what he posted. They were investigating someone else who did post something that was threatening and that tagged him in that post. So they wanted to ask him some questions.

Got a link or a quote about that?

It was in the article from msnbc linked in Misc's post.

They told FOX that it was not because of a tweet he wrote, but one he was tagged in though they have not disclosed the contents of that tweet.
