Chris Cantwell, the famous Crying Nazi who was a major figure in the Charlottesville riots, is pledging violent revenge and essentially a war on liberals for the conviction of fellow Nazi James Fields for the murder of Heather Heyer. Fields deliberately rammed his car into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing Heyer and seriously injuring dozens of others.
When Christopher Cantwell learned that self-professed neo-Nazi James Alex Fields Jr. had been convicted of murder, he promised violent retribution — “complete and total destruction” by “an army of fanatics” ready to die for their cause…A year later, with Fields’s trial now over, Cantwell went on the social media platform Gab, known for its far-right user base, and aimed his words at “Charlottesville and the broad Left.” Fields’s conviction “will drive us toward your complete and total destruction,” he said, claiming that there are more than enough people “to put in the massive amounts of unpleasant work.”
The next “Dylann Roof, the next Robert Bowers, he’s not going to go out blasting and be out of the fight,” Cantwell wrote.
Make no mistake, this is a declaration of war. The racist far-right has been itching for what they have long seen as the inevitable race war, which is essentially a Civil War reenactment with live bullets and bombs. And the federal government and local law enforcement should treat it as such. We’ve seen multiple racist and militia groups get arrested with huge stockpiles of guns, pipe bombs and other ordinance. They aren’t doing that just because it’s fun. There’s a plan here, emboldened by Donald Trump.
