Last August, Chris Cantwell, proud Nazi douchebag, was filmed by Vice as he was getting ready to march in Charlottesville, Virginia. He was ready to stomp some skulls for the white race! He was going to uphold the 14 words! He was going to make America white again!
A few hours later, the police were looking for him and he was weeping like a baby on Youtube earning him the nickname "The Crying Nazi". It was pretty damn funny unlike his dreadful stand up routine as a "libertarian comedian".
Last week, Mr. Tough Guy pleaded guilty to assault and battery and was kicked out of the state of Virginia:
On Friday, he pleaded guilty to two counts of assault and battery stemming from his dispersal of pepper spray near the University of Virginia rotunda on Aug. 11, the Albemarle Commonwealth's Attorney's Office said in a statement.
The 37-year-old from Keene, New Hampshire, was sentenced to two concurrent terms of 12 months, with all but seven months suspended, freeing him from detention. However, he was required to leave Virginia within eight hours and not return for five years.
Yes, the big tough Nazi that boasted on the Vice documentary that he was ready to pull out his gun and kill people pulled out mace instead (thank god). And then when the police came looking for him, he hid in a hotel room, weeping and sobbing, begging people to help him because he was afraid of being arrested. So much for the "master race".
For the moment, a lot of the white nationalists are all talk because to be a white nationalist is to fundamentally be a spineless coward. If they weren't so terrified of Those People, they wouldn't be white nationalists in the first place. But that will change over time as Trump enables them. Pardoning criminals and terrorists like Joe Arpaio and the Hammonds, sends a clear signal that right wing extremism will be tolerated. Given enough time, and a rubber stamp from the Supreme Court, it may even be legalized.
Next time, maybe the Crying Nazi will reach for his gun because he'll know the "law" will be on his side.
But for now, let's enjoy the fact that morality and decency are still the order of the day and a piece of garbage Nazi is banned from my home state.
