I thought the Dore interview was little on the "I'll get you on to push your podcasts and patreon/fan only links" side but the actual fact that someone was visited by state police (I think the CHP are the equivalent of that in CA) because of a tweet that didn't contain any threat at all is unbelievably worrying or at least should be.
I haven't looked but it was noted that there was an overt threat contained in the replies but you can't be responsible for people's replies and in any case, shouldn't they be visiting the person that made the reply if they visit anyone?
It would be very interesting to find the source of the complaint but I doubt the Gestapo will be revealing that however the cooperation of the tech giants with the securty state is obvious once again. They obviously didn't check what he had tweeted and whether it was a threat before giving his personal details to the pigs.
America is such a police state it's ridiculous but we're not far behind. Depressing.
