Thoughts on Tyranny

By calling criticism “attacks” and then immediately warning the country of the danger “violence and threats” against the FBI pose, [FBI Director] Wray deceitfully framed legitimate speech as violence or, at a minimum, the threat of violence. The object of this framing is obvious: to silence Americans who have finally found their voice following the FBI’s raid of Trump’s private residence at Mar-a-Lago.

In a country founded on first freedoms — foremost of which is free speech — Wray’s statement proves shocking.
