Sentenced to Prison for posting a Meme (Public Board)

If I said we still have freedom of speech in this country, I would be wrong. Douglass Mackey was convicted of sharing a meme poking fun at Hillary Clinton and her low-information voters. He didn't even create the meme, he just shared it. Now, our tyrannical government has sentenced him to 7 months in federal prison.

Of course, he will appeal it until he runs out of money, but the entire case sets a dangerous precedent for anyone that might post a meme that government censors don't like. In his case, they've charged him with conspiracy to commit election fraud. It's ridiculous because the meme was an obvious joke, but apparently that is no longer allowed in our "free" country.
