‘I am no coward’: Neo-Nazi whines he has been ‘crucified by Jewish media’ after crying video goes viral

Published

on

A neo-Nazi who participated in the “Unite the Right” Charlottesville rally insists he isn’t a coward despite video that shows him crying.

Christopher Cantwell — a 36-year-old self-proclaimed fascist — recently recorded video of himself discussing the fact that a warrant was issued for his arrest after the rally in Virginia. That video, in which Cantwell wipes away tears as he talks about the events that occurred during and after the violent rally, quickly went viral.

But now the neo-Nazi from New Hampshire is fighting against claims of cowardice.

“Please be careful. I’m willing to fight and die with you. I’m not a coward. But we are not prepared for the conflict we are about to walk into,” he wrote in a message on the social network Gab.

“Yeah, cause cowards and feds always jump into brawls risking life, limb, and liberty for the white race,” Cantwell also wrote.

On his personal website, he claimed to be just “outside of Virginia, preparing to turn myself in to the University of Virginia Police.” Cantwell also complained that many of his online accounts had been deactivated or suspended — including Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter and PayPal.

“Money is not easy either,” he wrote. “PayPal was the most important part of my financial life, and it has now shut me out.”

Cantwell — who once said his goal was to “normalize racism” — said the media and businesses were treating him unfairly.

“I have had no trial, no process of any kind, I have only been crucified by Jewish media and financial outlets for daring to suggest white people have a right to exist, to have a history, to have a culture, and to have a nation.”

Cantwell was also recently featured in a Vice.com video about Charlottesville, where he complained that President Donald Trump wasn’t racist enough.

Buffalo has a long history of protecting cops from criminal charges: report

Published

on

On Saturday, The Daily Beast documented the recent history of use of force in the Buffalo Police Department, which is reeling from controversy as two officers face assault charges for shoving a 75-year-old protester to the ground.

"As shocking as this all may be to outsiders, the shoving of demonstrator Martin Gugino and the defiant response of officers to an effort to discipline two of their own is indicative of the state of police affairs in Buffalo," wrote Jim Heaney. "Has been for a long time, not that you have to go back too far to find other episodes of brutality that have been captured on video."

Internet disgusted after Buffalo first responders cheer cops charged with assaulting 75-year-old protester

Published

Commenters on Twitter expressed both contempt and disgust for Buffalo firefighters and police officers who turned out in front of Buffalo City Court to support two suspended police officers with applause and cheering.

Moments after officers Aaron Torglaski and Robert McCabe were charged with second-degree assault and then released without having to post bail, they were greeted as heroes outside the courthouse.

After a video was posted showing the celebration, commenters on Twitter vented at cops and firefighters for defending the two officers who assaulted the 75-year-old man who had to be rushed to a hospital after they shoved him to the ground where he sustained a head injury.

Donald Trump’s lurch toward fascism is backfiring spectacularly

Published

on

Welcome to another edition of What Fresh Hell?, Raw Story’s roundup of news items that might have become controversies under another regime, but got buried – or were at least under-appreciated – due to the daily firehose of political pratfalls, unhinged tweet storms and other sundry embarrassments coming out of the current White House.

During the 2016 campaign, as Donald Trump railed against "Mexican rapists" and other "criminal aliens," pollsters found that the share of Americans who said that immigrants worked hard and made a positive contribution to our society increased significantly, and noticed a similar decline in the share who said they take citizens' jobs and burden our social safety net. After Trump was elected and began pursuing his Muslim ban, the share of respondents who held a positive view of Islam also increased pretty dramatically. I'm not aware of any polling of the general public about transgender troops serving in the military before Trump decided to discharge them, but Gallup found that 71 percent of respondents opposed his position after he did.
