White supremacist finally served for ‘terror campaign’ targeting Jewish woman — after five months in hiding

Published

on

Andrew Anglin, infamous founder of the neo-Nazi Daily Stormer website and the subject of a lawsuit alleging he unleashed an anti-Semitic “terror campaign” on a Jewish woman, has been served via an Ohio newspaper.

As The Daily Dot reports, Anglin, who has been off the grid for five months, was served via the Daily Reporter, a Columbus-based legal and business newspaper. Anglin is believed to be in that area based on multiple known addresses, the Daily Dot reports.

The lawsuit was served on behalf of Tanya Gersh, a Montana real estate agent who said Anglin and the Daily Stormer launched a “troll storm” against her that resulted in anti-Semitic death threats against her and her 12-year-old son.

In April, Gersh filed suit against Anglin and accused him of posting a series of articles that “caused his followers to overwhelm Ms. Gersh with hundreds of hateful and threatening anti-Semitic phone calls, voicemails, text messages, emails, letters, social media comments, and false online business reviews,” her suit read.

Since Gersh filed her lawsuit, Anglin has been in hiding despite a large legal defense fund on the alt-right crowdfunding website WeSearchr.

The Daily Stormer’s troll storm was the result of a conflict between Gersh and the mother of alt-right figurehead Richard Spencer, who alleged the real estate agent tried to intimidate her into selling property she owned by claiming she would face protests and other backlash for her association with her infamous son. As The Daily Dot notes, Gersh told The Guardian that Sherry Spencer’s allegations were a “twisted version” of what happened between them.

Gersh was not the target of the neo-Nazi’s ire in Montana — the Jewish community in the city of Whitefish, where Gersh and Spencer’s mom Sherry live, have been targeted with online abuse and protests since the alleged dispute.

Internet heaps praise on CNN’s Anderson Cooper for his ‘must watch’ destruction of Rod Blagojevich

Published

CNN's Anderson Cooper received near-universal praise across the board for what one commenter called his "fiery rebuke" of recently paroled former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich on Friday night that culminated in the CNN host telling him excuses for why he should not have been in prison were "bullsh*t."

During the highly-contentious interview, Cooper came armed with facts and did not let Blagojevich get away with comparing himself to political prisoner Nelson Madel a which drew a smirk and rebuke from the CNN host.

Many on Twitter were quick to point to the interview as one all cable hosts should look at as a way to stop guests who go on shows to lie with no pushback.

"It's interesting, Christi, the relationship between Trump and Barr seems to be on the rocks," Honig explained. "We saw Bill Barr step up and show some spine when he said to ABC News, the president is making my job impossible."
