‘Crying Nazi’ Chris Cantwell threatens to ‘take the law into his own hands’ like the Pittsburgh shooter
28 NOV 2018 AT 19:50 ET

In a since-deleted social media post, “Crying Nazi” Chris Cantwell threatened that white nationalists may “take the law into our own hands” like Pittsburgh synagogue shooter Robert Bowers or Emanuel AME Zion shooter Dylann Roof.

Mic reported that Cantwell made the post in response to news coverage of the trial for James Alex Fields, the man who drove his car through a crowd during the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in 2017 and allegedly killed activist Heather Heyer and injured several others.

Cantwell referenced “Dino Capuzzo,” an FBI agent he claims to have spoken to and given information about antifascists.

“If you will not act upon the information we provide to you, then what other choice do we have but to take the law into our own hands?” the man charged for spraying tear gas at counter-protesters during the Charlottesville rally wrote. “How am I any better than Dylann Roof or Robert Bowers, if my peaceful and lawful actions produce the catastrophe that awaits us all?”

Cantwell has since deleted the post made earlier in the week, but Mic included a screenshot of it in its article about the “Crying Nazi” and his apparent fixation on journalist and antifascist activist Molly Conger.

Conger told Mic that Cantwell began referencing her in his “Radical Agenda” podcast earlier in 2018 after he filed a lawsuit against her friend and fellow activist Emily Gorcenski, a woman who accused him of pepper-spraying her at the Charlottesville rally.

His $1 million lawsuit against Gorcenski and another activist who said he pepper-sprayed them was dismissed earlier in November.

Conger is now hosting her own podcast about Fields’ trial in Charlottesville — reporting Cantwell appears to dislike.

“Dear Molly Conger,” he wrote on a November 27 Gab post that was still up at press time, “You will pay for your lies.” The post linked to her podcast, hosted through Charlottesville’s WTJU.

Conger said it wasn’t the first time Cantwell specifically threatened her and that she has audio of him “encouraging a caller to come to my house and rape me until I’m not gay anymore” on his podcast from earlier in the year.

“In March or so, he spoke directly to me via his podcast and told me to slit my wrists,” she told Mic.

The journalist said she had in the past dismissed such threats as those of “keyboard warriors” but has since changed her mind since Bowers — the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter who also threatened her online — opened fire in the temple in October.

“I’d seen Bowers’ posts months before the shooting, even some threatening content directed at me,” she said. “And because it didn’t really stand out in the sea of hateful content around it, I dismissed it. And then he murdered 11 people. So I don’t feel it’s appropriate anymore to dismiss statements like the one Cantwell made last night.

“How is this any different than Bowers’ last post before he committed the worst act of anti-Semitic violence in American history?” Conger mused.

What a happy guy.
