The Regime on the Potomac has begun its campaign of repression. Media hysterics about insurrectionists and a vague Department of Homeland security bulletin about terrorism created an artificial crisis. Figures in the new Administration are eager to use state power against racists, even while they tolerate real crime.

The Ricky Vaughn case is a warning. Douglass Mackey (his real name), now 31, was one of the 2016 campaigns most effective pro-Trump Twitter accounts. On January 27, the Justice Department announced it arrested him for conspiring with others in advance of the 2016 Presidential Election to use various social media platforms to disseminate misinformation designed to deprive individuals of their constitutional right to vote. The Department of Justice arrested Ricky Vaughn for posting memes five years ago.
