The Most Terrifying And Important Video About #Charlottesville You Need To See

The rise of the “alt-right” has brought with it a rise in white supremecy and neo-nazism.  One of the people in the middle of this push to mainstream nazism and “ethnic cleansing” is New Hampshire’s own Christopher Cantwell.

Cantwell moved to New Hampshire as part of the Libertarian “Free State Project,” though the people at “Free Keene (online)” are claiming he was never one of their bloggers.

Cantwell hosts a podcast called the “Radical Agenda” from his home in Keene, New Hampshire.  (I am not linking to his blog on purpose, if you are really interested in finding it you can google it.)

The Southern Poverty Law Center describes Cantwell’s show:

“On his show and in mordant essays published on his website Christophercantwell.com, this 36-year-old self-proclaimed fascist – whose style borrows from such mainstream shock jocks as Howard Stern and Opie and Anthony — argues for an Anglo ethno state free of African-Americans, Jews and non-white immigrants, save, perhaps, for the occasional exception.

In Cantwell’s world, Blacks are prone to violence and have lower IQs; Jews spread communism and can’t be trusted; immigrants are outbreeding whites; and a race war is all but inevitable.”

Cantwell’s words are vile and disturbing to say the least.  His hateful rhetoric actually scares.  The worst part is that he is not alone.

As the “Unite the Right” rally happening, Vice News, traveled to Charlottesville and followed Cantwell from the torch rally Friday night to the chaos that ensued on Saturday.

This 20 minute video from vice news very hard to watch, but some things must be seen.  Vice does an amazing job of showing the people in this “Unite the Right” rally and that while they claim to be promoting “free speech” their fascist message of violence and ethnic cleansing shows they did not go to Charlottesville to speak, they came prepared for a war.

 

In the most ironic turn of events, as the National Guard descended on Charlottesville and violence exploded Cantwell posted a video where he is crying and begging the police to protect him.  After all of the hateful rhetoric he spews in the 20 minute Vice News story it is hard for anyone to sympathize with his predicament.

 

Fascism is wrong. The thought of “ethnic cleansing” is appalling.  Nazi’s walking freely in the streets is disturbing.  My grandfather volunteered to service in World War II to destroy Nazi’s and fight the fascist regime.

We need everyone to stand up against hate. We need more white people, like me, to stand up against racism.

We beat the nazis before and we will destroy them again.
