It’s never been easier to get yourself on a government watch list.
According to recently released and heavily redacted search warrants, the Biden administration’s Department of Justice is making sure of that.
The DOJ demanded information on “all users” who interacted with former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account leading up to the Capitol protest on January 6.
The DOJ called on Twitter to provide the department with the “content of all tweets created, drafted, favorited/liked, or retweeted by” Trump’s account, including “deleted tweets.” A list of “all users” that Trump’s account “followed, unfollowed, muted, unmuted, blocked, or unblocked” was also requested.
In addition, the DOJ wanted a list of those who followed, unfollowed, muted, unmuted, blocked, or unblocked Trump as well.
Sara Gonzales thinks it’s all absolutely insane, especially considering Trump was essentially a Twitter icon.
“That’s everyone who’s ever been on Twitter,” Gonzales says, in shock, while Stu Burguiere notes that they might as well just be asking for “all Twitter user information.”
“It shows how deep they’ve gone on this. This is really their game plan, is to target everybody who opposes them, and this is I guess a good starting point,” Stu says.
However, many people who absolutely hated Trump — like those with cases of TDS — obsessively responded to the former president.
“What about all those nice Democrats that have been calling him Hitler all these years?” Stu asks.
“They now are on the government list as well.”
