Anybody who has been politically active on social media has experienced some very nasty, hurtful and even threatening encounters. A Facebook friend who happens to be a dedicated liberty activist and Ron Paul supporter got this message on a Facebook post a few hours ago.
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo. 3 hours agoWhile I have personally been subjected to vilification, I have never been threatened. What should we do when we are threatened? Just ignore the threats and hope that the psycho is just an obnoxious but harmless bully? Should law enforcement be contacted? Given my personal contempt for law enforcement, the thought of calling the cops makes me cringe.
I don't doubt that many liberty activist have been threatened, harassed and intimidated but trying to figure out if such folks are truly dangerous is a challenge.
I am soliciting the thoughts and wisdom of fellow liberty activists on this issue. How do sane folks handle the insane folks? Maybe 'Block and Defriend' is all that we can do when we are confronted with the Bat Shit Crazies.
I look forward to your input.
