Progressive radio host scores $4.1 million victory against neo-Nazis

Published

on

Radio host and sometimes-Comedian Dean Obeidallah won a major victory this week in his war against neo-Nazis at the Daily Stormer.

The Washington Post reported that the SiriusXMProgress host was awarded $4.1 million by a federal judge for smearing Obeidallah as a “terrorist.” The attack on Obeidallah prompted several to send death threats and terrify the progressive host.

The goal of the lawsuit, according to Obeidallah was never about money, he said it was about “sending a message to Trump-loving white supremacists that they will never silence me nor any of the people in the groups they hate.”

Obeidallah isn’t new to attacks from the right wing, as many progressive hosts are, but death threats are another level than simply Twitter trolling.

“We will not cower in fear nor stop speaking out. Rather we will stand up to them by using the courts, getting judgments and collecting every last dollar they have,” Obeidallah said in a statement.

He doesn’t anticipate the Daily Stormer will be able to pay up, but if they do, he intends to donate the award to charity. It’s unclear if the Stormer could file for bankruptcy protection to avoid paying.

The work done at the Charlotte facility will be outsourced to a firm in Arkansas, according to the report.

"Looking forward to collaborating with all of our #BeBest Ambassadors. Delighted to be working alongside so many people both inside and outside of government to better the lives of children everywhere!" Melania Trump tweeted Monday.

The response was some of the harshest since she wore an "I Don't Care" jacked to visit the border.

Donald Trump on the US-Mexico Border

On Sunday, Austin Savage and five of his friends huddled into an SUV and went to an El Paso Target, loading up on diapers, wipes, soaps and toys.

About $340 later, the group headed to a Border Patrol facility holding migrant children in nearby Clint with the goal of donating their goods. Savage said he and his friends had read an article from The New York Times detailing chaos, sickness and filth in the overcrowded facility, and they wanted to help.

But when they arrived, they found that the lobby was closed. The few Border Patrol agents — Savage said there were between eight and 10 of them — moving in and out of a parking facility ignored them.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
