However, using information Fatzick himself posted on Reddit — including his age, girlfriend’s name, former employers, friends, location, educational background, and sports affiliations — this reporter was able to tie the vile posts of UncleSam4200 to the Voice of America reporter. Fatzick is a graduate of Coastal Carolina University, a former writer for right-wing tabloid the Daily Caller, and a fan of the Pittsburgh Penguins — all of which he states on his Reddit account.

I’m laughing so hard right now. “Hey, nobody will find out!” Proceeds to post a breadcrumb trail of everything needed for just that.

Lucky most of these guys are complete morons. Hope his life goes right in the shitter, he’s earned it.


#2352

Well there is always Breitbart News to fall back on. I’m assuming they look the other way while hiring racist assholes, hell, it might even be a prerequisite.

“you must be at least THIS racist to ride this ride.”

Among the behaviors that will result in the revocation of verification are “promoting hate and/or violence”, supporting hate groups, “inciting or engaging in harassment of others”.

Shortly after the policy change was announced, the company de-verified the accounts of the white nationalist Richard Spencer, the far-right activist Laura Loomer, the English Defence League founder Tommy Robinson, and others.

Holy shit.

Wow. That was … unexpectedly blunt (and welcome). If they’re trying to make me pleased enough to buy their stuff, that helped a bit. Bravo, PR department. They still need better pizza, though.

I guess the CEO got his ass reamed by the shareholders.


#2359

Good for them except… the kneeling was a compromise. I wish that was talked about more often. Kneeling was the attempt to be respectful, not that racists would care.


#2360

The only “compromise” these people would ever accept is never doing it, because the very concept of compromise is foreign to them.


#2361

They don’t even know why they are angry.
These people are just angry because people like hannity told them they should be, and it’s an excuse to get mad at black people.

It’s the same reason they hate the black lives matter people.


#2362

Yep, witness the bullshit about Trump and the UCLA players.


#2363

Trump is used to ass-kissing. He’s surrounded by his own ass fan club, and he doesn’t understand why black people don’t just join it. Also, those UCLA players were idiots. I don’t know why they claim we treat shoplifting as a hand slap in the USA either. That’s not really the case for people their age… but 10 years in prison would be extreme here for sure.

"Trump’s America."
Even after he’s gone, we will still have to contend with this.

On december 16, 2016, Tanya Gersh answered her phone and heard gunshots. Startled, she hung up. Gersh, a real-estate agent who lives in Whitefish, Montana, assumed it was a prank call. But the phone rang again. More gunshots. Again, she hung up. Another call. This time, she heard a man’s voice: “This is how we can keep the Holocaust alive,” he said. “We can bury you without touching you.”

He commanded his readers—his “Stormer Troll Army”—to “hit ’em up.”

“All of you deserve a bullet through your skull,” one Stormer said in an email.

“Put your uppity slut wife Tanya back in her cage, you rat-faced kike,” another wrote to Judah.

“You fucking wicked kike whore,” Andrew Auernheimer, The Daily Stormer’s webmaster, said in a voicemail for Gersh. “This is Trump’s America now.”

Over the next week, the Stormers besieged Whitefish businesses, human-rights groups, city-council members—anyone potentially connected to the targets. A single harasser called Judah’s office more than 500 times in three days, according to the Whitefish police. Gersh came home one night to find her husband sitting at home in the dark, suitcases on the floor, wondering whether they should flee. “I have never been so scared in my entire life,” she later told me.

He also arrived at a more fortuitous moment. Anglin and his ilk like to talk about the Overton Window, a term that describes the range of acceptable discourse in society. They’d been tugging at that window for years only to watch, with surprise and delight, as it flew wide open during Donald Trump’s candidacy. Suddenly it was okay to talk about banning Muslims or to cast Mexican immigrants as criminals and parasites—which meant Anglin’s even-more-extreme views weren’t as far outside the mainstream as they once had been. Anglin is the alt-right’s most accomplished propagandist, and his writing taps into some of the same anxieties and resentments that helped carry Trump to the presidency—chiefly a perceived loss of status among white men.
