“You were convicted on the basis of what they said your intent was.”
Douglass Mackey was arrested, tried and convicted over a meme. He’s been sentenced to 7 months in prison for sharing a joke on Twitter about Hillary Clinton, and her voters, leading up to the 2016 election.
While his alleged crime was in 2016, he wasn’t arrested until 7 days after Joe Biden was inaugurated in 2021. The FBI came to his home at 7:30 in the morning, dragged him out of his home in handcuffs, and didn’t even tell him what he was being arrested for until he was arranged at the courthouse. He told all this to Tucker Carlson.
