The FBI and the NYPD arrested two women in New York City for allegedly plotting a terrorist attack on the United States, prompting Sen. Dianne Feinstein to release a statement that shows she has no fucking clue how the internet works.
Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today released the following statement on the arrests of two women accused of plotting to conduct a terrorist attack in New York City:
“The arrests of two women in New York accused of plotting to carry out bombings remind us that the threat of terrorism inside the United States endures. We must remain vigilant against these types of attacks and place a high priority on tracking and interdicting such plots.
“I am particularly struck that the alleged bombers made use of online bombmaking guides like the Anarchist Cookbook and Inspire Magazine. These documents are not, in my view, protected by the First Amendment and should be removed from the Internet.
Removed from the internet. Please do let us all know when you’ve invented the magic wand that makes things magically disappear from the internet. We won’t be holding our breath, though. And she does realize that the internet doesn’t just exist in America, right? And that the First Amendment only applies in America? Does she not have one person on her staff under the age of 40 to tell her that if she says this out loud in public, she’ll look like an out-of-touch ignoramus?
