This guy is Exhibit A as to why I consider the Alt-Right to be “Revenge of Nerds,” and not “Triumph of the Will.” What’s there to be said about a dude that waves a personal arsenal on TV, marches with folks from Daily Stormer, calls Donald Trump a “cuck” because his daughter married a Jewish man? He might as well have said, “Here I am! Come get me!”
Look for the state to start making examples of the leaders of the “far right.”

Charlottesville police have reportedly issued warrants for the arrest of Christopher Cantwell, a white supremacist prominently featured in a Vice News documentary.
Cantwell is wanted for his involvement in the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last weekend, where a counter-protester was killed when a man affiliated with white nationalists allegedly drove his car through a crowd.
The warrants are for illegal use of gases and injury by caustic agent or explosive, the Boston Globe reported.
Charlottesville police did not immediately respond to TPM’s request for confirmation.
Cantwell posted a tearful video on YouTube earlier this week after apparently learning there were warrants out for his arrest.
