‘Crying Nazi’ Made Famous By Sulking On Youtube, Arrested Once Again
Cantwell allegedly attempted to pressure someone to reveal personal information about a Cantwell enemy. Using Telegram, an encrypted messaging app that has become a haven for white supremacists, Cantwell sought “personal identifying information” about a man known by the “on-line pseudonym ‘VM,’” according to the indictment.
“So if you don’t want me to come and f*** your wife in front of your kids, then you should make yourself scarce,” Cantwell wrote in a June 16 message. “Give me Vic, it’s your only out.”
Last July, Cantwell used Telegram to threaten a lawyer suing him over his actions in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a deadly white supremacist rally was held in 2017. He called the woman anti-Semitic slurs and claimed that he and his followers “would have a lot fo f***ing fun with her.”
Cantwell has been banned from Virginia for five years, after he pepper-sprayed two activists and plead guilty to assault charges.
