The far-left radical group Antifa reportedly tweeted out a list of 1,500 Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents’ identities, compromising the safety of agents and their families.
“Nebraska Antifa” sent a tweet out on Tuesday, praising the individual who compiled the list.
“Some enterprising hero archived the ICE employees listed on Linkedin,” the tweet said.
The list was archived by Sam Lavigne, who appears to have painstakingly doxxed all the data from the business networking site.
“I scraped LinkedIn for people that work for ICE,” Lavigne tweeted yesterday evening.
In the replies to his tweets, not everyone was pleased- with one person posting what appeared to be Lavigne’s personal info, including his name, age and phone number.
Others implored him to stop what he was doing, claiming it would endanger the agents listed.
“What are you hoping comes out of this?” user Lisa Nani said. “You’ve made the equivalence of a hitlist. These people are only doing their jobs to help, and you’re out here putting their lives in danger with misguided hate. Delete this, Sam. This isn’t journalism, its tabloid-level witch hunting.”
Adding fuel to the flames of controversy, actor Peter Fonda posted a now-deleted tweet, suggesting (in all-caps) that such a doxxing attack should be followed up by threatening behavior.
“WE SHOULD HACK THIS SYSTEM, GET THE ADDRESSES OF THE ICE AGENTS CBP AGENTS AND SURROUND THEIR HOMES IN PROTEST,” he tweeted. “WE SHOULD FIND OUT WHAT SCHOOLS THEIR CHILDREN GO TO AND SURROUND THE SCHOOLS IN PROTEST. THESE AGENTS ARE DOING THIS CUZ THEY WANT TO DO IT. THEY LIKE DOING THIS. F**K.”
In a second post, Fonda suggested taking the President Trump’s son, Barron, and throwing him “in a cage with pedophiles.”
The doxxing “hit list” affects everyone from removal agents to recreation specialists and nurses.
