‘Crying Nazi’ threatens more violence after conviction of Heather Heyer’s killer: An ‘army of fanatics willing to die’

Published

The notorious white supremacist nicknamed the “Crying Nazi” defended James Fields as an “innocent man” after he was convicted of murdering Heather Heyer at the deadly “Unite the Right” rally.

Christopher Cantwell, who was also charged for his role in the Charlottesville alt-right gathering, lashed out at the “left” following the conviction.

“Charlottesville and the broader Left celebrate prematurely tonight,” Cantwell wrote on the alt-Right social media platform Gab. “The show trial and CONviction (sic) of James Fields is merely a symbolic victory for you, which you’ll forget in short order. He was not an intellectual leader or military necessity.”

“It is likewise symbolic for us. We lost nothing, but we will never forget. Knowing that any of us could be next, it will drive us toward your complete and total destruction, as a matter of necessity for our very survival,” he threatened.

“The next Dylann Roof, the next Robert Bowers, he’s not going to go out blasting and be out of the fight. You are creating an army of fanatics who are ready to die, but the ones who are listening to me, are going to put in the massive amounts of unpleasant work, that will be required to make sure history treats you worse than it did Hitler,” he continued.

“If he was found not guilty, he could have been a sign of hope for our justice system, and peaceful solutions to our problems, and lacking those signs is a pain I would rather not suffer,” he added.

WATCH: John Oliver exposes Trump’s lies about vote-by-mail — and the Fox News ‘cult’ claiming the election is already ‘rigged’

Published

on

"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver's main story Sunday refuted President Donald Trump's latest crusade against vote-by-mail. Trump announced on Twitter that the more people who vote in an election, the more Republicans tend to lose. So, he wants fewer people to have access to the ballot in November, even if people are too scared to go out during the coronavirus crisis.

Oliver called out Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (R-MO), who outright told people not to vote if they were too afraid to vote in the local elections next week.

"Well, hold on there," Oliver interjected. "Voting is a right. It has to be easy to understand and accessible to anyone."

John Oliver rips Fox News’ Tucker Carlson for urging ‘order’ from people of color — but never demanding it of police

Published

on

John Oliver opened his Sunday show, shredding Fox News host Tucker Carlson for uring "order" among protesters, but refusing to urge "order" to police and "wannabe police" who can't stop killing people.

It's a lot, Oliver explained. "How these protests are a response to a legacy of police misconduct, both in Minneapolis and the nation at large and how that misconduct is, itself, built on a legacy of white supremacy that prioritizes the comfort of white Americans over the safety of people of color."

While some of it is complicated, Oliver conceded, most of it is "all too clear."

Cars set on fire blocks from White House as DC protests turn violent

Published

on

The Washington, D.C. protests turned violent as the city approached the 11 p.m. curfew the mayor instituted Sunday afternoon.

The policy of D.C. police is that when they are attacked, they advance forward. So, when fireworks were fired, the line of officers began pushing the protesters back further from the White House. Behind the line of police officers also stand a line of National Guard troops that President Donald Trump has demanded stand watch in the city.

Lights that normally shine on the White House have also been turned off, reporters revealed.
