'Crying Nazi' Vows Revenge on Charlottesville

Newser — Polly Davis Doig

The white nationalist known as the Crying Nazi had some tough talk in the wake of Friday's conviction of James Fields Jr. in Charlottesville, though the Washington Post notes that "his vow was at least somewhat blunted by his dramatic fall and humiliating nickname." Cantwell took to right-wing social media to warn "Charlottesville and the broad Left" that the guilty verdict "will drive us toward your complete and total destruction." Further, he says his white nationalist movement has the numbers "to put in the massive amounts of unpleasant work," and that the next "Dylann Roof, the next Robert Bowers, he’s not going to go out blasting and be out of the fight." The Post notes that Cantwell's notoriety resulted in his OKCupid! account getting exposed, and the website promptly banned him for life.
