Skip to comments.Just received a visit from the FBI

A couple of hours ago receive a hard knock on the door. I answered the door and about 7 or 8 agents all flashing badges (claiming to be FBI and/or CIA) rushed me and pushed me against the far wall.
My dog attacked and they would have shot him had I not broken free for a second and covered him by laying him on the floor beneath me.
After things calmed down a bit and I received assurances that nothing would happen to him if I placed him in the bedroom and closed the door.
I did so and they then read me my rights and explained that my opinions expressed on Free Republic were the reason they were there. I had expressed my opinion of what I thought of the current President and the majority in congress and was therefore a potential threat to the government. After what seemed to be hours they came to the conclusion (I hope) that I was merely expressing my opinion and not a leader of a counter revolutionary army - as they saw it.
They searched my apartment for weapons and found 4 (which I have not fired in over a year or more) and they seized them for testing. My dog (Ranger) was not happy with the situation so I had to hold on to him during the search to keep him from being shot.
They also seized my computer and downloaded my entire files system. I suppose they also copied any files erased by normal erasure techniques. They returned the computer as "WAS" (as far as I can tell) but I after careful consideration the past few hours I have concluded that they are monitoring me closely.
I'm not even sure this message will make it through but what else can I do but try?
If (Big IF!) this does make it through, beware. They are watching and may make a visit to your residence and give your the same routine.
It really shook me up and I have trouble keeping my nerves steady and my thoughts straight as I write this message.
Once this gets out (IF THIS GETS OUT) I can pretty much expect their return but this time they probably won't be quite as considerate of myself and my dog who they will probably shoot on sight.
I have packed my truck with essentials but I suspect that there are those that are watching so I may not make it to one of my favorite mountain camping sites.
There I will not have any communications except when I get into town and use WIFI to make any contact.
Good luck and keep your heads down.
They have become serious about enforcing their new powers - and some of us might not make it.
I'll probably be #1 on their list.
Semper Fi and God Bless one and all.

I didn't think so either. But it looks like there was a problem to begin with.
Yes. That was posted on a thread. I can’t find it.
He (jongaltsr), sounds like an agent provocateur to me.
New World Dictionary definition of “agent provocateur”: A person hired to join a political movement in order to incite its members to rebellion or illegal acts. And we’re too rational to fall for that game. We already know that passive resistance is far more effective than violence, because it doesn’t turn public opinion against you. That’s why our grandparents’ Civil Rights Movement was such an unstoppable juggernaut. They made their enemies look bad in front of the whole world.

This is going to be good bump!
I read that he had made threats awhile back too. I’m going to be leaving for bed before long, ping me if anything exciting turns up and I’ll see it tomorrow, lol.
Yes. Yes I do.
The fire dept. has stated conclusively that it was arson but will not elaborate to anyone.
LOL!! I will. But I’m going to bed soon too.
How can there be a default choice on state Flags, you either choose your flag or don’t have one. I took my Texas flag off because I was getting all these alerts to the ‘Texas state board’, and I didn’t want that. It didn’t used to do that and I haven’t checked lately to see if it still does.
OK, we’ll probably both still keep getting pings and it will be hard to leave!
I think he really got a visit from the feds, and he was probably rattled enough to account for the stupid description. Then later, after getting the zot from the mod, he started getting more paranoid, and ultimately he deleted his stuff, and what we see now is the default choice.
He’ll be back when he cools down. Lots of his posts are nutty as can be.
This is the most interesting thread I’ve ever followed on Freeper. It’s been up for a couple of hours now, and comments are still pouring in! I go away for a while, come back, and it’s still fun to read.
Also known in various regions of these United States as ... a rooty toot.
Your search skills are excellent. I was sad reading through that thread, so many old FReepers gone now. It reminded me of BCM, Battalion Chief Moran, who died in the Sept 11 attacks a few months earlier. Sigh.
