An attorney from the Department of Justice (DOJ) issued threatening messages over social media last week to the Auschwitz Museum, claiming he would “come after” the museum’s press official.
“@AuschwitzMuseum if you ever intimidate my followers via DM again, or you try to intimidate strong Jewish women who lost family members at Auschwitz, I will confront you. Personally. That’s a promise,” DOJ attorney McKay Smith said in a tweet on Wednesday.
Smith was triggered after the museum blocked a feminist account that posted trolling messages toward them on Twitter. Smith direct messaged press official Pawel Sawicki with personal threats after warning him publicly never to “test me again… ever again.”
“He deleted one of his tweets where he accused me of siding with Holocaust deniers,” Sawicki said to the New York Post. “I have been working at the memorial for over 12 years and I think I was never disrespected with such a personal false accusation.”
Smith claimed that the museum was harassing accounts on Twitter after the museum sent direct messages explaining their position to certain followers who were concerned about the feminist account getting blocked.
“I have followers writing me that are so terrified from your DM that they can’t even write. … You scared them to death. Can’t even speak. [the] ‘Auschwitz museum’ came after them. After it came for their family,” Smith tweeted.
Jewish leaders expressed no concern with how the museum handled the situation.
“I think the Museum acted responsibly by taking the conversation from the open space, which usually only invites trolls to pile on, and pushing it into DMs to address people who have tweeted at the museum,” said Yossi Gestetner, co-founder of the Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council.
In addition to his threats to the Jewish community, Smith has also claimed that allowing free speech on the internet is equivalent to being an accomplice in terrorism.
Open question: if you foster avenues for terrorists and bigots to anonymously espouse hate speech, aren’t you guilty of helping them murder whatever innocent civilians they end up murdering?
My answer is unequivocally “yes.” https://t.co/Tse0Xn24l5

He has also hint that the 1st Amendment of the Constitution should be eradicated to prevent so-called hate speech:
New U.N. Report on Online Hate Speech. “Hate speech is one of the most controversial areas of content moderation… It is also the area in which international human rights law is perceived as being furthest from U.S. First Amendment law.” https://t.co/iydB8TgHSp pic.twitter.com/ZigDBfJvko

In addition to being a DOJ lawyer, Smith is regularly given access to young minds through academia. The deranged bureaucrat works as a lecturer for the George Washington University School of Law, the William & Mary School of Law, and the Scalia Law School. He is a tenured operative with the Intelligence Community.
His GWU law school bio says that his duties include providing “guidance to members of the Intelligence Community regarding interpretation and application of governing authorities.” He is also tasked with identifying “individual and systemic incidents of noncompliance and works with responsible agencies to correct existing problems, as well as to limit the occurrence of future incidents,” meaning that he is a deep state tattle-tale.
Before he obtained his position with the DOJ, Smith worked as Senior Inspector with the Department of Homeland Security, Office of Inspector General and as a staffer in the office of deceased former Sen. John McCain. With clowns like Smith working in the federal bureaucracy, it’s no wonder why the Intelligence Community is the laughingstock of the world.
