FBI Arrests Oklahoma Man For Twitter Threats

He’s a conspiracy nut confused about who actually carried out the OKC bombing (hint: not brown-colored socialists or Islamofascistocommunitariangaylibotards). He would have gone to the rally, but FBI arrested him at his hom. The elderly, non-energetic man he thought was the organizer was also contacted by the Feds on his way to the rally, and quickly disavowed all knowledge of the conservatwit’s activities.

FBI Arrests Oklahoma Teabagger For Twitter Threats | Threat Level from Wired.com

An Oklahoma City man who announced on Twitter that he would turn an April 15 tax protest into a bloodbath was hit with a federal charge of making interstate threats last week, in what appears to be first criminal prosecution to stem from posts on the microblogging site.

Daniel Knight Hayden, 52, was arrested by FBI agents who identified him as the Twitter user CitizenQuasar. In a series of tweets beginning April 11, @CitizenQuasar vowed to start a “war” against the government on the steps of the Oklahoma City Capitol building, the site of that city’s version of the national “Tea Party” protests promoted by the conservative-leaning Fox News.

His Twitter page looked like this a short time ago:


Some of the links on that Twitter page were pretty freaky-deaky. The Oathkeepers one, in particular, had a very high hairy-eyeball rating on my wingnut-o-meter (no link, too creepy). In order to make their “10 Orders We Will Not Obey” recruitment video a little more sympathetic to a potential recruit, they intercut video coverage from the Katrina disaster (Shephard Stewart, Geraldo Rivera.. FOX, naturally). It makes FEMA the boogieman that refused to help people and effectively dumped people in detention camps, which meme is the current favorite conservatives love to pass around because they can’t deal with Obama winning a majority in the election. Remember, though, the FEMA of the Bush Administration was hampered by the feeble incompetents installed by Bush at the top… “Heckuva Job” Brownie was a Bushie, and his underlings were no better.
