American Arrested for Insulting President on Twitter

No, not Trump.

A U.S. citizen has reportedly been arrested in Zimbabwe for insulting the country’s president on Twitter.

A spokesman for the U.S. Embassy told the Associated Press that Martha O’Donovan was arrested on Friday after posting tweets that allegedly insulted Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe.

O’Donovan, who works for Magamba TV, a local news network aimed at youth, is being represented by lawyer Obey Shava of Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights. O’Donovan’s Twitter account is private, but an unverified account appearing to be MagambaTV tweeted news about her arrest.

Before you get too indignant, remember that the previous administration arrested a man for posting an anti-Islam video in the wake of the Benghazi attack.

    This is how typical socialist/communist governments operate in real practice.

    Silence from leftist enablers is deafening!
