Oh. These Bastards Are Getting Bold

Free Speech advocate Tim Pool has just been paid a visit in the middle of the night....and then they came back after being warned away by police.

Watch the video. It's pretty scary...until it gets scarier.

This is not cool.
Pool's recently planned  free speech event was shut down by threats of violence against their venue and had to be rescheduled and relocated to somewhere else Philly and New Jersey this weekend.

So it will go on despite the gloating. *

Now they are showing up on Pool's doorstep.

This is serious business, we saw what they did to Andy Ngo.

* For some idea of how far things have fallen and how crazy things have gotten, when reading that asterixed hot-take remember that one of the founders of VICE news was...Tim Pool.

1 There is no reason whatsoever for a stranger to show up on your doorstep at 4:30 AM.  Tim probably needs redundant cameras and more lights at this point.

2 Tim Pool is living on the wrong side of the Delaware - unlike New Jersey, which is generally hostile to the 2nd Amendment, Pennsylvania is one of the states with a Castle Doctrine law (Literally the only good thing to come from Tom Corbett's term as governor.).  

I found the 'explanation' that the visitor gave the local cops to be amusing - he rode a bus from DC to Philly, got off in Philly, and walked across both Philly and one of the the Delaware River bridges AT NIGHT (Which is probably enough to draw all sort of attention from the authorities if he actually did that.), and an additional 10-15 miles to reach Pool's home.  Assuming he rode either a bus line or a small time bus operator, the guy had to have gotten off somewhere in Chinatown (Especially if he rode Greyhound, which has only one stop in the city.), which is over half of the city away from the river.  You can walk it - but it ain't going to be a short walk.

Of course, maybe it is just a lie...

3 Pool specifically mentioned that the bridge the guy would have crossed is NOT a pedestrian bridge.
