Subject: Police visit the home of podcaster after he criticized AOC on twitter

This is a very serious incident if the Capitol Police are dispatching armed police officers to citizens' homes in response to non-violent criticisms of a politician's statements. It's repressive.
The question is how did the Capitol Police link his name and address to the Twitter account, and why would they send police to a citizen's house for interrogation over a tweet posted "Outrageous" is putting it mildly.


Two police officers showed up at Ryan Wentz's home in California after he posted on Twitter criticizing Ocasio-Cortez's remarks
A podcaster said he was "harassed" by two police officers at his home in California and accused of threatening Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., on Twitter -- a claim he calls outrageous and provably false.

The Twitter user, who goes by @queeralamode, is demanding answers from police and the congresswoman on why he was tracked down at home on Thursday. He said the experience left him "shaken up" and "feel[ing] very unsafe in my home right now."

In his Twitter posts, the podcaster argued that a seemingly non-controversial tweet he made about Ocasio-Cortez's "incredibly underwhelming" response to a question on Palestine-Israel policy sparked the knock at his door from California Highway Patrol.

"I shouldnt be harassed by police for critiquing her politics," @queeralamode tweeted in response to the police encounter.
