FBI agent admits to questioning Americans ‘all day long’ about their social media posts

The following is an excerpt from The Washington Times.

FBI agents recently told an Oklahoma woman, confronted at her door, that the bureau sends agents to question Americans about their social media posts “all day long” in an “effort to keep everybody safe.”

Stillwater resident Rolla Abdeljawad took a video of her conversation, later posted on X by her attorney Hassan Shibly, with the agents, who arrived at her home last week.

The video shows them telling her that Facebook submitted screenshots of her posts to the agency.

Ms. Abdeljawad told them she didn’t want to speak to them without her lawyer and demanded they show their FBI credentials, but they refused.

She later wrote on Facebook that she confirmed with local police that the men who appeared at her home were indeed FBI agents, reported Fox News.

“Facebook gave us a couple of screenshots of your account,” one agent said in the video.

Ms. Abdeljawad responded, “So we no longer live in a free country, and we can’t say what we want?”

“No, we totally do,” the other agent replied. “That’s why we’re not here to arrest you or anything. We do this every day, all day long. It’s just an effort to keep everybody safe and make sure nobody has any ill will.”

The woman then responded, “All I’ve done is exercise my right as an American citizen on a public social media platform with my personal opinions.”

The FBI defended its actions in a statement to The Washington Times, saying, “Every day, the FBI engages with members of the public in furtherance of our mission, which is to protect the American people and uphold the Constitution of the United States. We can never open an investigation based solely on First Amendment-protected activity.

“The FBI is committed to ensuring our activities are conducted with a valid law enforcement or national security purpose, and uphold the constitutional rights of all Americans.”

Although the agents didn’t specify what Ms. Abdeljawad said on the internet to warrant their visit, she did post statements recently discussing her exasperation with the Hamas-Israel war. In one post, she called Israel “Israhell.” (Continued….)

  1. Without knowing what she was posting, it’s hard to form a valid opinion.

    On the other hand, I was banned from Musk’s X simply for using the expression “Drop Dead” — with Musk’s illiterate gatekeepers claiming that it’s a “death threat” as opposed to what it is — a common figure of speech indicating disgust and meaning “get lost” or “take a hike,” which are also common figures of speech that no reasonable person would interpret as telling someone to literally get lost or take a hike. The idea of taking expressions like that literally is too preposterous to believe, so those that PRETEND to take such common expressions literally are either mentally ill or just dishonest — especially doing it a second time after they’ve already admitted to be wrong the first time they did it.

    Per Cambridge Dictionary:
    drop dead!
    idiom slang
    a rude way of telling someone that you are annoyed with them and want them to go away or be quiet:
    Oh, just drop dead!

    The FRAUDS at Musk’s X KNOW this because I told them and included the link to that explanation. They sent me an email apologizing and reinstating my account. Then a month later I used the same expression, they banned me again under the same bogus claim that it’s a death threat, and I’m still banned even though I reminded them that we’ve already been through this.

    In light of that experience, I would tend to take this woman’s side of the argument, even without knowing what she may have posted, because I KNOW that the social media creeps are creepier than one could possibly imagine — and Musk and the clown that owns Facebook are two of the biggest, creepiest FRAUDS one could possibly imagine.

    1. I was banned from Twitter ( about 2 weeks before Musk took over) for posting “Anyone trying to take a police officer’s firearm should be shot”. * This was after someone was shot for that very action.
      * It is considered a valid kill in law enforcement or at least used to be.

    The problem occurs when a law enforcement officer, an intelligence officer, or a counterintelligence officer makes a mistake in judgement. The really huge problems occur when the mistakes are recorded in the government computer systems. The stories may appear to be true, but are later found untrue. Sometimes the lies are never corrected, and innocent people go to prison or have their lives turned inside out. Brian J. Kelley was a CIA Counterintelligence Agent until the FBI determined he was traitor. FBI Agents followed Mr. Kelley and eventually had him removed from his job because they believed he was a double agent. The actual double agent was in fact an FBI Agent named ROBERT HANSSEN. After Kelley’s life was ruined, the FBI arrested their own agent – ROBERT HANSSEN and sent him to prison where he later died. Kelley died at age 68.

  3. Thought criminalization.

    I wonder if US State Department wants to jump in, too – by backing Scotland in their horrendous Hate Crime bill (effective April 1, 2024) which proudly claims to target persons WORLDWIDE!


    Neither is an opinion.

  4. This is a tough one here. I don’t trust the mainstream media, I don’t trust the FBI, but most of all I Do Not trust Moslems.
    The simple fact that Moslems have managed to shut down most civil discourse because to criticize Islam, Mohammad, etc is viewed as Islamophobia. Simple historical fact will not be allowed to be posted on most sites.
    In view of the actions of the pro-Palestinian protestors, I venture to say it was something else on her FB account that brought about the FBI attention.
    I guess it was not so tough.
    If the US is to survive, our law enforcement must return to law enforcement activities, not monitoring school board meetings, PTA, etc.
