On Friday, The Daily Stormer founder Andrew Anglin published an incendiary bit of propaganda that called on white supremacists to harass Jewish people in the town of Whitefish, Montana, claiming that they have caused Richard Spencer’s mother’s real estate business to fail (of course, this is not true), Think Progress reports. Richard Spencer is a white supremacist and president of the National Policy Institute, credited with coining the term “alt-right.” A few weeks ago he was quoting Nazi propaganda in German at D.C.’s NPI conference, and, as of this week, the scum is considering running for Congress.
He is also this guy:
On Tuesday, Sherry Spencer (Richard’s mother) complained to ABC Fox Montana that her business is suffering—apparently some people don’t like her son’s “political views,” and it’s those people who are the problem. Sherry is now considering selling a building she owns in Whitefish’s downtown historic district, whose top-floor vacation rentals she leases out.
Sherry told ABC in an email that while she “unequivocally [does] not agree with the extreme positions espoused by Richard,” she places blames mostly on human rights group Love Lives Here, but it’s not clear why, other than that they also do not agree with Richard’s positions. Love Lives Here co-founder Ina Albertput it this way to ABC, “I don’t know what she’s talking about.”
Enter The Daily Stormer. Anglin’s screed claims falsely and malicious that Jewish people in Montana are harassing and attempting to extort money from Sherry, citing a Daily Mail article published Thursday that cites the ABC article, which just so happens not to mention Jews at all.
Anglin’s post becomes potentially dangerous when he lists the personal information of members of Love Lives Here, including photos, email addresses, phone numbers, and social media accounts. Love Lives Here Chairman Will Randall told the Missoulian that the people targeted were singled out because they are Jewish or have Jewish-sounding last names (the six-pointed stars stamped onto each photo bearing the word “Jude” is also not subtle). The post calls Love Lives Here “a terrorist group,” and describes Jews as “vicious, evil race of hate-filled psychopaths” and “a people without shame.”
The post reads, in part:
“Are y’all ready for an old fashioned Troll Storm?
Because AYO – it’s that time, fam.
And as always: NO VIOLENCE OR THREATS OF VIOLENCE OR ANYTHING EVEN CLOSE TO THAT.
Just make your opinions known. Tell them you are sickened by their Jew agenda to attack and harm the mother of someone whom they disagree with.
In case you blinked, telling a Jewish person that you’re “sickened by their Jew agenda” is already threatening, obviously, not to mention blaming Jews for economic failure is precisely a tactic used in Nazi Germany during Hitler’s rise to power.
Correction: an earlier version of the article misidentified the source of Anglin’s article as “Stormfront.” It actually appeared in a different white supremacist publication, “The Daily Stormer”, which deserves all the credit.
