WATCH: Crying neo-Nazi Chris Cantwell made 2014 Colbert appearance as ‘total d*ck’ parking meter vigilante

Published

Most of the world first encountered neo-Nazi and proud racist Chris Cantwell on Wednesday when viral video of him crying and coming unglued over an arrest warrant that might or might not have been taken out on him in Charlottesville, VA.

However, Cantwell actually first came to national attention in 2014, when he was featured on a “Colbert Show” segment with two other residents of Keene, NH. The three “libertarians” styled themselves as the “Free Keene Squad,” packing weapons and spending their days harassing the town’s parking enforcement officers.

The segment detailed an Iraq War veteran’s decision to quit his job rather than cope with being continually harassed by the — in Colbert’s words — “total d*cks” in the Free Keene Squad.

“I find that when I carry a gun, people are very unlikely to hit me,” Cantwell said proudly.

He was featured in Vice.com’s documentary about the lethal violence in Charlottesville, VA last weekend, then appeared in a viral video begging police for instructions on how to turn himself in and crying.

Since then, Cantwell has angrily insisted that the “Jewish media and financial institutions” are “crucifying” him by pointing at his weak sister antics and laughing.

Trump may come to regret his big celebration of a small dip in unemployment

Published

on

Though the unemployment rate remains in the double-digits, the official unemployment numbers are slightly lower than economists expected, prompting self-congratulations by President Donald Trump.

This article first appeared in Salon.

But experts say celebration is premature.

Indeed, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the unemployment rate fell from 14.7 percent in April to 13.3 percent in May as the economy added 2.5 million jobs. The high April number was the worst that the American workforce had seen since monthly record-keeping began in 1948, and almost certainly the worst since the Great Depression. White House economic adviser Kevin Hassett predicted last month that unemployment would rise above 20 percent, a view that was widely shared by economists.
