He threatened to sue her.

delete your false tweets and issue an official retraction—or I will unleash hell on you.
He’s complaining about tweets from Randi in this thread.

“For example, school choice– to get universal school choice, you really need to operate from a premise of universal public school distrust. Because in order for people to take significant action, they have to feel like they have something at stake.”

“And so what we’re seeing, I think, as the first step is a narrative and symbolic war against companies like Disney, for one example.
You have to be very aggressive. You have to fight on terms that you define. You have to create your own frame, your own language, and you have to be ruthless and brutal”
Randi has three things going for her:
1. She quoted Rufo’s words
2. The resources of the AFT.
3. The First Amendment
Go for it, Chris! No empty threats. Show your cards. Get woke.
