The rise and humiliating fall of Chris Cantwell, Charlottesvilles starring fascist

Well, folks, our blubbering baby nazi wannabe finally made national news.

That should just about finish his tuff man image.
but did you know he had runner-ups?

The white supremacists, nationalists and far-right trolls who starred in last weekend’s violent Charlottesville rallies have suffered no lack of humiliation in the days since.

Take “Millennial Matt,” whose catchphrase — “Hitler did nothing wrong!” — earned him tens of thousands of fans before he went to the rally, but his Twitter account has since been deleted, his real identity publicized, and he is now begging fans for money to flee his hometown because “my life is in shambles.”

There are plenty of other examples, from the hot dog restaurant cook who lost his job to students whose universities publicly renounced racism after they went to the march. There’s even a Twitter feed devoted to shaming the tiki-torch-lit faces of white nationalism.

But none of the marchers soared so high or crashed so hard as Chris Cantwell, who became the ivory-skinned, gun-toting star of a documentary about Charlottesville that aired Monday on HBO — and a week later is better known as the “weepy white supremacist” or “weeping Nazi” who got banned from OkCupid.

Thanks for so many laughs, Chris.

24. Doesn't sound like she needed much practice. 😉

I believe Chinese invented gunpowder and fireworks. I lived in Shanghai for 4 years and the fireworks were spectacular.

13. I love that he lost all of his internet social sites...

He can use another name and get them back, but can't be "himself" then.

I am really really happy about all the pushback this week. The country is demonstrating INSTANT
willingness to literally stand up to these losers.

17. In Jan. we were all deflated, thinking he would lead the country into the dark ages

and now, actually because of him, we are learning how much social progress we really have made, and giving the Republicans in and out of Congress a shock.
Pretty damn amazing.

18. Yep - I'm proud of the vast majority of American folks

and I still don't have a doubt that the system will bring the Con down.
I maintain - they stole the elections.

7. The Media??

Another right winger who made his own bed and now blubbers that he has to lie in it. These asses insist they are all about personal responsibility. HA. They always blame someone else for their own messes. He's a fascist scumbag, and THE MEDIA had nothing to do with that. He needs to own his failure.

8. The tough-guy persona is ridiculous.

Have to say, right up front, dude does not look 'white'. I bet a DNA swab would get his Neonazi credentials revoked.

Always with the calls for purity from the purely confused.

I hope and trust that his troubles are just beginning. He needs serious intervention.

Serious.

16. These people come to wreck others lives with their spew, 75yrs ago their ideological cousins

were responsible for the killing of millions. They should be stomped out like grapes, identified, doxed and made to crawl into a hole.

20. It couldn't happen to a nicer guy!

No, seriously!

If was a nicer guy, this could not have happened to him; but, he decided to be a racist, anti-Semitic asshole instead.

23. Hmm. Sounds like some of these men have been living in a fantasy land, but now

that the shit is getting real, are getting cold feet.

Funny, the shit has been REAL for people of color ever since the first African slave landed here in chains.

We have GOT to come together and have a racial reconciliation. We white people can't be in denial about slavery, racism or white privilege, and it's going to take a hell of a lot of work to build trust with POC. But we've got to try, because it is OUR land - yours as much as mine. Only together can we make that real - yes it will be painful, but it's a hell of a lot better than living in some divisive fantasy world.
