DEMOCRACY DIES IN DOXXING: CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski threatens to out anonymous Internet user who created the animated “Trump clotheslining CNN logo” GIF that the president’s account retweeted:

CNN is not publishing “HanA**holeSolo’s” name because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed his remorse by saying he has taken down all his offending posts, and because he said he is not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again. In addition, he said his statement could serve as an example to others not to do the same.

CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.

In the phone interview on Tuesday, “HanA**holeSolo” said the White House did not ask his permission to use the GIF, and said he probably would have said no if they had.

As Twitchy notes, “Seriously, this is what the media does now? They track down people and ‘threaten’ to post their personal information for sharing content they don’t like?”

Sharing content, incorrectly answering hypothetical questions about who they’d make pizza for — wherever there is badthink being thought, the DNC-MSM is one business that’s always ready to swing into action to destroy its customers.

And on the Fourth of July, to boot.

UPDATE: “CNN has chosen the form of its Destructor. A million @4chan guys,” Glenn tweets.
