What HuffPo just did to pro-Trump activist should send a chill down the spine of every red-blooded American

Today, it’s Amy Mek, it could be you tomorrow if you espouse the wrong viewpoint.

A Trump-supporting Twitter user known to post unsavory tweets slamming radical Islam and the left’s progressive agenda has effectively had a target put on her back, courtesy of Huffington Post.

Tweeting under the name Amy Mek, the social media user was doxxed by HuffPo’s Luke O’Brien, who took a deep dive into the woman’s live. The journalist painted the social media user as anti-Muslim and a racist, contacting family members and her husband’s job, according to the woman, resulting in the spouse being fired.

O’Brien even outted her real name.

“There is a real person, however, behind the bio,” he wrote. “The headshot is real, if dated. And the Twitter handle, surprisingly, differs little from her actual name: Amy Jane Mekelburg.”

“Wow @HuffPost is now in the business of doxxing absolutely disgusting and you’ve put @AmyMek in danger. @TheJusticeDept,” a social media user tweeted.

All of this over tweeting? Granted, Mekelburg, a Jewish woman who’s no shrinking violent, has over 223,000 followers and has been retweeted by President Trump.

The outspoken conservative responded to say the Huffington Post reporter’s action have placed her in danger.

She posted a series of tweets Thursday detailing what she calls harassment, asking followers to contact Huffington Post — owned by ‎Verizon Communications via Oath Inc. — and tell them to call off their dog and “stop endangering me and my family.”

“Contact the @HuffPost and demand reporter Luke O’Brien stop endangering me and my family. He has threatened to reveal my identity putting me and my family at great personal risk. But it’s MUCH worse than you can imagine…,” the thread begins.

Mekelburg also made it clear that her husband “was fired because of my pro-Trump, pro-Jewish and pro-Christian voice,” warning other conservatives this could happen to them, as well.

The article goes so far as to “out” Mekelburg’s brother and his business.

In conclusion, she expressed concern for her safety and asked followers “to please pray for my family.”

‎Many of her posts walk a fine line when it comes to political sensibilities, but if the content was so egregious, it’s only logical to think that Twitter, not exactly a refuge for conservatives, would have long ago deleted her account.

What’s more, Mekelburg had some heavy hitters come to her defense, denouncing the hate-induced attack that has reportedly resulted in death threats being leveled against the woman.
