Just in case you didn’t already hate the Nazis and white supremacists from Charlottesville enough, here’s another thing that will make you enraged. The Daily Stormer is recruiting people to protest at the funeral of Heather Heyer, the woman who was murdered by a white supremacist terrorist who ran her over with his car.
“Weev”, the system administrator for The Daily Stormer is planning on sending Nazis to #HeatherHeyer funeral. #Charlottesville,” Loomer wrote.Her tweet included a screen shot of a post by “Weev” asking for “e-sleuths” to track down the funeral location.
“Yo, I need some research done,” Weev wrote. “What’s the location of this fat skank’s funeral.”
“Get on it, e-sleuths,” he added. “I want to get people on the ground there.”
I feel the same way about this that I feel about the Westboro Baptist Church protesting at the funerals of gay people. Do they have a legal right to do it? Yes. But if I was there and it was one of my loved ones? You’d have to pull me off the first one I could get my hands on or they would end up in serious legal jeopardy. And that isn’t macho posturing. I just know that I’d lose my shit over it in the moment and become violent. That’s an unusual thing for me. I haven’t taken a swing at anyone since the 8th grade. But a Nazi shows up to protest at the funeral of someone I know who was killed by one of their Nazi buddies? There’s gonna be blood spilled.
