To say that the Daily Stormer’s Nazi-in-chief Andrew Anglin is excited about Trump’s electoral victory is a bit of an understatement. Anglin, one of the most influential figures in the so-called alt-right, is so overjoyed by Trump’s success that he’s … encouraging his readers to harass depressed Hillary supporters until they kill themselves.
In a post on Wednesday (archived here), Anglin pointed his readers to dozens of tweets from Hillary supporters publicly declaring themselves scared by Trump’s win.
“You can troll these people and definitely get some of them to kill themselves,” Anglin happily tells his readers.
Just be like “it’s the only way you can prove to the racists that Hillary was right all along.”
“Mass Suicides After Trump Victory” would be a headline the media would play up, but all it would do would demoralize the left even further.
Our dear old friend Matt Forney is also quite excited at the prospect of Trump-related suicides.
This guy took things a bit further.
Unfortunately, those in charge of Twitter don’t really seem to care much that their platform has become the enabler of this sort of harassment. Forney, for example, only got a brief timeout after repeatedly harassing a Republican strategist who was and is a vocal critic of Trump.
Twitter, in other words, is giving alt-right harassers the tools to be the worst human beings they can possibly be.
