DOJ DEMANDS 1.3 MILLION IP ADDRESSES OF VISITORS TO ANTIFA WEBSITE USED TO COORDINATE RIOTS

In what is shaping up to be a contentious battle over privacy rights and free speech, the Department of Justice has formally requested that web hosting firm ‘DreamHost’ turn over 1.3 million IP addresses and other information to ‘unmask‘ visitors to the anti-Trump Antifa website ‘disruptj20.org,’ as part of the investigation into crimes committed on and around the January 20 inauguration. DreamHost has challenged the request, claiming the scope of data requested violates the first and fourth amendments because it is too broad.

DisruptJ20.org was registered in October of 2016 by the ‘DC Anti-fascist Coalition,’ and promoted along with the hashtag #DisruptJ20 as a central resource for anti-Trump protesters to coordinate various plots over social media intended disrupt the presidential inauguration on and around January 20. The website connected users through mailing lists and planned meet-ups, and provided a calendar of anarchistic events as well as resources to help people prepare for the mayhem. The site also provides a ‘legal guide’ for those arrested.

Of note, organizers Luke Kuhn and Colin Dunn were caught on hidden camera at the infamous Comet Ping Pong Pizza restaurant in Washington DC, where they divulged plans to release butyric acid at the “Deploraball” Inauguration party, as well as “a series of clusterf*ck blockades, blockades of all the major ingress points in the city, shutting down major bridges and highway access points, as well as shutting down metro rail.” (video 1, video 2)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's see what the First Amendment to the Constitution says about this behaviour:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

This kind of protest is the absolute antithesis of "peaceful assembly"; Antifia is all about violence for staking their claims, and making their point. This is not at all what the First Amendment protects.

And the "stink bombs" which can be made from butyric acid?!? Although not physically harmful, the stench created from the release of this chemical could absolutely cause a panic.

The 4th Amendment

The 4th Amendment to the Constitution states the following: "he Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution provides that "[t]he right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly ..."

In this instance, the government absolutely has probable cause to be chasing down this information; Antifa is a domestic terrorist organisation, dedicated to the overthrow of the legitimately elected government of this country, and that cannot be allowed to happen.

Please, do not get me wrong here; there are a number of moves President Trump has made, which I have criticised, peacefully, vocally, and logically.

Therefore, the kind of language in which I have indulged on this blog, is Constitutionally protected.

But to attempt at a violent overthrow of a legitimately elected President?!?
That's not protected free speech; it is treason.
