are the real heroes, they lead
us by example.
Brave Richard Hopkins
won’t recant his true statement
despite the cloaked threats.
“I’m not scaring you—-
(Pause)But I am scaring you.”
Big Brother tactics.
that’s what whistleblowers do
We should protect them.
Richard Hopkins, a military veteran says he was asked by his USPS supervisor to backdate ballots. He was fired from his job at the post office on Veterans Day for revealing this information, (he’s on leave without pay while he’s under investigation). Whistleblowers used to be protected but now they’re punished.
The USPS tried to intimidate him through a CIA/FBI-styled interrogation but he refused to recant his statement. Would you speak up? I don’t know if I’m brave enough to be a whistleblower. I’d like to think I would speak up, but when your job and even your life is at stake, it might not be a simple decision.
During his interview with Project Veritas his personality came through in an ex-mother-in-law joke. I like his earnestness and commitment to support his country. Here’s an abbreviated clip of his interview from Project Veritas:
Whistleblowers used to be anonymous, they were given code names and were disguised on camera but now they’re in full view, vulnerable to being attacked online or in person. MSM often tries to discredit them instead of doing their job of investigation/reporting. I hope Richard remains safe and he’s rehired. Shame on USPS. Is every institution corrupt on some level?
