Oh boy, here we go again with another case of Democrats going after Trump supporters. This time, a man named Douglas Mackay, also known as “Ricky Vaughn” on Twitter has been found guilty of election interference for posting a harmless meme during the 2016 election.
That’s right, A MEME.
Let me break it down for you: Mackay was a pro-Trump, American nationalist with a sizable following on Twitter. In 2016, he posted a meme that encouraged Hillary Clinton voters to cast their vote by text, which was OBVIOUSLY not a legitimate way to vote. The Department of Justice alleged that Mackay carried out a “scheme to deprive individuals of their constitutional right to vote.” Give me a break.
Mackay argued that he was just trying to create a funny meme and that Democrats were circulating similar memes without facing any penalties. The DOJ couldn’t even find a single voter who claimed they were deprived of their right to vote because of Mackay’s tweet. But that didn’t stop a New York City federal court from finding him guilty of conspiring to deprive Hillary supporters of their right to vote.
And here’s the kicker: Mackay could face up to 10 years in prison for posting a meme. Yes, you read that right. This is how far the Democrats will go to silence their opposition. And who’s to blame for Mackay’s unjust punishment? You guessed it: Joe Biden.
Despite this happening in 2016, the DOJ didn’t arrest Mackay until January 27, 2021, one week after Biden became president. Coincidence? I don’t think so. This is just another example of Democrats using their power to go after anyone who supports Trump. It’s a sad state of affairs, but it’s the reality we live in.
