THIS is how you do it...



'So what you're saying is that I don't have freedom of speech? I can't say what I want to? Is that the concern?

'Did I commit a crime by expressing what I said?'


When the SS wannabee wankers rock up at your door...

Fucking marvellous!

1. Well, if she used the S word and sounds like she did, that would be why.

Confused by their attire, SS wouldnt be dressed like that you wouldnt think.

3. I want to know how it resolved. Did they just determine she wasnt a threat and never come back

or what.

8. Her statement was open ended.

There's such a wide difference between "I am going to do X" and "I wish someone would do X."

So there's literally nothing they can even do about it.

From what I understand they send out these peons to just ask questions and scope out peoples houses. Most people just write some stupid shit and regret it later, others tell them to sod off, the real crazies who have a cache of guns in their garage get arrested.

6. Well, she certainly knows her rights.

The SS comes to just see if you're crazy and have a house full of guns or whatever. If she actually made a really threatening comment she would've already been arrested.

7. Well done. I haven't called for someone to shoot the a-hole but as just written...

I have used grade-A choice words to describe the MFer multiple times so if the feds show up at my door I know what to do.

10. I'm a little surprised they bothered in this case.

I figure her right wing Facebook friends mass reported her or something and that raised signals.

Her statement, as quoted, was clearly and unambiguously protected free speech.

9. Pretty casual attire for Secret Service Agents

Big tip off is him not just giving her a card. And I would have held that written number right up to the camera lens.

11. He doesn't even really want to be there. And the cop REALLY doesn't want to be there.

The body language is eloquent.

Also, if they thought there was a serious threat here, it would have been way, way more businesslike. They would have arrived loaded for bear.

As it is, I suspect they're just working through a low-priority threat list that's getting really tedious, because so many people are on it.

But they DO have to do it, and actually, they did it correctly. He pushed a little, he responded properly when she pushed back.

SS are pros. Misogynist buttholes, by and large, but pros.

amusedly,
Bright

13. I'll give you my name and birth date...

other than that I will exercise my constitutional right to remain silent and I request to have my attorney present for any other question. Have a nice day.

rinse
