The myth that Robert Tracinski was arrested by the Secret Service has been debunked by Robert Tracinski himself

RRD:On Sunday February 12,2012
a individual identifying himself as ”Ronbo Soldier” posted this story:

The Freedom Fighter’s Journal: ROBERT TRACINSKI – INTELLECTUAL LEADER OF THE TEA PARTY – ARRESTED BY SECRET SERVICE?

It’s a hoax.
(Or at best the ravings of a lunatic.)
I don’t know with certitude whether “Ronbo Soldier” himself made it up,or whether a hoax was played on him,or whether the person who allegedly sent him the e-mails was insane.(Though Mr.Tracinski believes ”Ronbo Soldier” made it up.)

Tracinski publicly popped up on his Facebook page here.

Fortunately,& contrary to the views of statists,the internet,the same mode of communication that makes it easy to spread rumours and myths,can also debunk them.
It does not need government ”fact checkers”.
A thinking people can act as their own fact checkers.In this case,less than a day after the fact,it was exposed by the alleged victim himself.
We may err for awhile,but we can correct our own errors without needing minders or ”gatekeepers”.
The answer to false speech is MORE speech.
