Yesterday, I wrote an article in which I claimed that Wen-Ting Cheng, the Chief Counsel of ICE in New York, was a coward for not meeting with Danna, a severely disabled little girl who may lose her father to deportation.
To disseminate this article, I relied heavily upon Facebook.
I realized this morning that a person or persons reported the link to the article as abusive to Facebook, and likely to other sources.
I was suspicious given that the article attracted 33 page loads in one day from a variety of IP addresses at DHS Headquarters.
I then went back over our logs for the day to see when Facebook visited our website. My findings are alarming, as the following photo demonstrates:
It is fairly obvious that DHS did not like the article I posted yesterday. So DHS reported it as abusive in retaliation for my unusually public criticism of a non-public DHS employee, NY Chief Counsel, Wen-Ting Cheng.
DHS probably would not have visited yesterday but for the fact that I sent the article to Wen-Ting Cheng in an email and she subsequently forwarded it to her superiors.
Big Brother is not just watching.
