    'Hang them all': January 6 committee members target of violent rhetoric on right-wing social media platforms

    (CNN Business)Calls for violence against members of the January 6 committee are circulating on some of the same online platforms that helped fuel the lies that led to the insurrection, a new analysis has found.

    Users on these platforms are openly calling for the execution of committee members, with Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney appearing to be a specific target. Calls for former Vice President Mike Pence to be hanged, that were chanted throughout Washington DC on January 6, continue to be echoed online.

    Determining what is just rhetoric and what might be an active threat is a challenge for law enforcement.

    John Cohen, the former Department of Homeland Security Counterterrorism Coordinator and now an adjunct professor at Georgetown University, told CNN that authorities cannot treat social media posts with concerning language as simply hyperbole.

    Cohen described the monitoring of social media as a "resource intensive process that has to involve federal, state and local authorities who are working together, who are operating under strict protocols that ensure that they are able to distinguish between constitutionally protected speech and threat-related activity."

    "We're in a highly volatile and complex threat period," he added.

    The online threats continue as Illinois Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger revealed Sunday he received a letter in the mail that threatened to execute him, his wife and their newborn.

    The decision by both Facebook and Twitter to kick then-President Donald Trump off its platforms for rule-breaking after the insurrection was a boon to a developing cottage industry of alternative social media platforms.

    No. The Pandemic increased stress in society; loss of jobs, loss of income, sickness, long covid, supply shortages, etc.

    Mix frustration with summer heat and violence is sure to arise.

    Wow, we have a poster right here on this forum that calls for hangings.
    BTW. What's the difference between a hanging and a lynching?
