It’s a scary time in America for those who did not vote for Joe Biden.
Cancel culture was just the beginning of the crackdown on the Democrat Party’s political opposition.
And Tucker Carlson warned that this arrest meant Joe Biden suspended the First Amendment.
On Wednesday night, Tucker Carlson led off his show with news of the arrest of Trump supporter Douglass Mackey.
Mackey built up notoriety during the 2016 campaign as the Twitter personality named “Ricky Vaughn” – which was an homage to the Charlie Sheen character from the 1980s classic movie Major League.
One week after Joe Biden took over control of the Justice Department, the FBI arrested Mackey for memes he posted during the 2016 election claiming Mackey violated an 1870s statute designed to protect black Americans from Klu Klux Klan intimidation to keep them from voting.
Mackey made a joke meme claiming Democrats should vote by text message.
Federal prosecutors did not provide any evidence even that those who texted a vote to the number later did not show up and cast a legal ballot.
According to the Justice Department’s own website, the statute used to arrest Mackey reads, “Section 241 makes it unlawful for two or more persons to agree together to injure, threaten, or intimidate a person in any state, territory or district in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him/her by the Constitution or the laws of the United States, (or because of his/her having exercised the same).”
Carlson accused the Biden administration of effectively suspending the First Amendment by claiming memes on Twitter now constitute criminal disinformation.
Even liberals like MSNBC primetime host Chris Hayes posted on social media that the timing of this case as well as the nature of the charges made it appear as if the Biden administration was exacting revenge on their political opponents.
Yeah I've got some questions about why this case wasn't brought sooner. https://t.co/LoI2gsZt58

Members of the Fake News Media claim conservatives are falsely claiming that Joe Biden will label all Trump voters domestic terrorists and unleash law enforcement on them.
But in just one week in office, Joe Biden has the Capitol under military occupation and his Justice Department arrested a prominent Trump supporter.
