Neo-Nazi Website Daily Stormer Forced to Pay $4.1 to American Muslim Radio Host

Source: Law & Crime

A federal court has ruled on Wednesday that the publishers of the neo-Nazi and white nationalist website, the Daily Stormer, must pay $4.1 million to the SiriusXM radio host Dean Obeidallah for publishing defamatory statements about him.

“American Muslims should be able to take part in public life without being threatened or attacked,” Obeidallah said in a statement. “This ruling sends a clear message that Muslim voices will not be silenced by threats and hate.”

In August 2017, Obeidallah, Muslim Advocates and other co-plaintiffs, sued the Daily Stormer and its founder, Andrew Anglin, for publishing an article that called Obiedallah a terrorist. The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio ruled for the full award of his lawsuit since Anglin did not contest the case. The ruling also placed a permanent injunction against the defaming article.

The article in question,”Dean Obeidallah, Mastermind Behind Manchester Bombing, Calls on Trump to Declare Whites the Real Terrorists,” falsely stated that Obeidallah “planned and executed the horrific terrorist attack that took place at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, United Kingdom” in 2017. It also said that Obeidallah is member of ISIS and a “confessed terrorist wanted by Europol, MI-5, Interpol and a litany of other international authorities.” Obeidallah originally asked the Daily Stormer to remove the article when it was posted. After two months had passed without any change, the lawsuit was filed.

13. Indeed. Like blood from turnips.

Obeidallah wasn't in it for the money. The daily redneck doesn't have what anyone would consider deep pockets. I don't even think Anglin has pockets and I doubt mom will pick up the tab.

7. He's quoting the headline at the link.

Not really his fault, he has to quote it accurately in LBN.

8. Indeed, but parentheses might get around that rule.

As is, it looks like the Daily Stormer got off easy.

11. Textbook case of defamation

You can't expect to say that an individual was behind a terrorist attack with no evidence and skate free with no repercussions. Mr. Obeidallah probably should've gotten more money considering how right-wing loons react to situations in similar cases like Pizzagate or the suspects sending bombs to people.
