I'm not a fan of social media. I have a Facebook and use it often, but I don't post/comment on hardly anything. In my immediate local area, quite a
number of people have been protesting (and 100% peacefully). Local news stations have been running stories of it on FB and there's been lengthy
discussion regarding Trump, "NoBanNoWall," and other current events.
The local media affiliate made a post regarding the protests (local protests) when I saw a comment had been made regarding "kicking the lefts out
with the Muslims/illegals and rounding up people who criticize Trump to educate them on American patriotism," something along those lines I'm
paraphrasing. At this point I decided to leave my .02, which in retrospect was completely useless because some people are simply unhinged.
I'm sure we've all experienced it at one point - I made a comment, and the guy went off. He started spamming the post with thing unrelated to the
topic, blamed me for "the destruction of America," - we've allllll experienced this at one point or another. And don't misconstrue me, it really
didn't bother me. Keyboard warriors are awesome. I protested the G2 summit in Chicago. I've protested in NY. But that's beside the point I'm about
to get to.
Not feeling complete, the dude then personally messaged me threatening to contact ICE, the CIA, the FBI, and the Secret Service to deport me. He then
told me "vote Democrat, expect to get shot." For those who know me in personal life, they know I'm not a democrat. I voted for Ron Paul FFS, and
I'm about as white as they come (not sure why I would be deported lol).
Like I mentioned this doesn't necessarily bother me too much. I'm just laying this out for you. What this mf'er did next though - yeah, it bothered
So, feeling as if he still hadn't said enough - the guy decides to find my girlfriends Facebook and send her a few messages.
Now - I was just going to screenshot his messages and embed them, but I'm using mobile and no offense, ATS, but I would rather not give out my
girlfriends FB. Anyways, the first message was #ing unreal.
Word for word, I quote: "Better watch where ur at in public princess. If I ever catch you I'll grab you by your pussy and show you a real man."
She didn't reply, and at this point I reported him to FB and I threatened to contact local law enforcement. Not quite happy yet, the guy then decides
to message my girlfriend again.
This time, and again I quote his words: "Praise KEK for little whores pay the price as sex slaves your future is looking bright princess."
At this point we had simply blocked him on both accounts, but low and behold he wasn't done yet!
No more than fifteen minutes after receiving the last message, my girlfriend received another message from an entirely different account. And I quote:
"you liberals are cucks. Snowflakes that can't take a joke. It won't be a joke when I'm on top of you and you can't do anything about it."
Needless to say, I was blown away. Never, in my 22 years of being on this Earth, have I ever "experienced," anything like that.
In the year 2017, in the U.S.A., my girlfriend was threatened to be raped, I was threatened to be shot/deported, because we're "libtards," which
isn't even true considering neither of us voted or saw a candidate worth voting for in our opinion.
This opened my eyes up a bit. This really made me feel shameful in how aggressive, ignorant, and dedicated some are to their partisan and identity
My girlfriend is legitimately worried that something is going to happen to her, and her work has contacted local law enforcement and there is a #ing
LEO sitting at her work-place right now keeping an eye on things. She wouldn't sleep last night and was incredibly paranoid this morning. I took her
to work because she was too scared to drive by herself (it's about a 20-30 minute drive).
We had plans to go to a friends this afternoon for the Super Bowl but instead, she wants to go to the shooting range and learn how to shoot (which is
awesome, I've been shooting for a few years now myself and love it).
I don't understand what is wrong with someone to the extent of carrying out harassment to a level such as this. It's absolutely unwarranted and
provides nothing beneficial to anyone involved.
This has gotten under my skin because it's somewhat compromised my girlfriends sense of safety and trust in others. I don't understand why a happy,
loving, compassionate, and mature individual would ever resort to such ignorant statements to prove a political point.
Needless to say I wanted to share this with you folks on ATS. I've been here for awhile. Like many others, I lurked here for years before I dove in.
ATS may not be what it used to be, sure, but I'm confident in that most folks here are beyond a level of being an asshole like that and despite our
differences there are some legit conversations and discussions that are had here.
I needed to rant about this, so I thank you for the time you've spent reading. It may seem absolutely #ing retarded (because it is), but this has
impacted my girlfriend - without a doubt, and that's just not cool.
On a happier note, dude got a healthy serving of a DDoS (I promise it wasn't me) and I know who he is, where he lives, where he works, and what he
looks like - and it's been passed along to the authorities. If you're going to threaten to rape/kill random strangers on the Internet, don't expect
to have it chalked up to "free speech, just joking around," or whatever it may be.
Thanks for reading ATS. Enjoy the Super Bowl if you're a football fan and be responsible.
