The Obama Administration, Immigration, and Censorship of Dissenting Opinion
My colleague Bryan Johnson of*Amoache & Johnson, PLLC*wrote a blog yesterday that was critical of a decision of New York Chief Counsel Wen-Ting Cheng. *Mr. Johnson disseminated the blog post through*his Facebook account. Mr. Johnson then disseminated the blog post through his Facebook account.
Analytic statistics*reveal*that the blog post has been viewed by*33 IP addresses attributable to the *Department of Homeland Security. *According to Mr. Johnson, an IP address attributable to*Facebook also viewed his website yesterday, with one visit occurring a mere 2 minutes after a visit from an IP address located at DHS Headquarters.
Shortly thereafter, Facebook censored the link to the blog post by invoking a security warning that Mr. Johnson's website has been classified as abusive, proactively blocking any link to the blog. *Now it appears that Mr. Johnson's entire firm website has been similarly blocked by Facebook.
Next stop, IRS audit.
Big Brother is watching.
