I don’t get it, none of these people check their mail. What’s the point? At best the culprit would have taken out a mail room clerk and given the reciever a bunch of positive press/attention

If you're stupid enough to think George Soros is orchestrating school shootings you're probably stupid enough to think Obama checks his mail like a regular dude

To spread fear.

Which they've accomplished.

You overestimate the enemy here. Also I don't see many afraid people.

You underestimate them if you think that this wasn't immediately capitalized on by known hostile actors. Those funny little bears with Siberian IP addresses.

Yeah. Also our own news outlets though.

I mean, if Russia truly has it so they benefit whenever some dumbfuck from the American hinterlands does a dumbfuck thing then they've basically already won.

Some people don't think their plans through. People forget there is a process for handling mail. They probably think the mail will just have one postal room. Also this comment made me think of my dad who is a Mail Clark and my younger brother who works as a mail handler in a pretty big USPS mail facility. Well damn.
