A judge says Daily Stormer owner Andrew Anglin should pay $14 million for urging followers to "terrorize" a Jewish woman in Montana.
US Magistrate Judge Jeremiah Lynch made the recommendation, and as The New York Times notes, it’s now awaiting approval from US District Court Judge Dana Christensen. In addition to "monetary damages", the ruling recommends requiring the Daily Stormer to take down articles about Anglin’s target Tanya Gersh — who’s still suffering "atrocious conduct" from harassers because of the posts.
Anglin refused to appear in court, and this is a harsh default judgment against him. It recommends Gersh receive around $4 million as compensation for lost earnings and emotional distress, citing the "particularly egregious and reprehensible nature" of Anglin’s actions. The judge also awarded $10 million in "punitive damages" — the maximum amount allowed under the law — to "punish Anglin and deter him from engaging in such conduct in the future."
Gersh said that the judgment sent "a clear message to Anglin and other extremists".
"This lawsuit has always been about stopping others from enduring the terror I continue to live through at the hands of a neo-Nazi and his followers, and I wanted to make sure that this never happens to anyone else," she said in a statement. Anglin’s location is currently unknown, and it’s not clear how much money (if any) Gersh might actually get.
The liberal extremist Southern Poverty Law Center filed suit on Gersh’s behalf in 2017. The complaint followed months of alleged "death threats and hate messages" from readers of the Daily Stormer — which, according to the SPLC’s complaint, had published 30 posts railing against Gersh. Anglin’s attacks stemmed from a failed real estate deal between Gersh and Sherry Spencer, mother of white nationalist Richard Spencer. Spencer then claimed that Gersh had extorted her, and Anglin posted photos and contact information along with instructions to "make your opinions known" about the issue.
Anglin’s lawyers attempted to mount a First Amendment defense of his posts last year, but Judge Christensen refused to dismiss the case. Anglin then failed to appear in court, his lawyers cut ties with him, and he forfeited the suit. It’s the second recent judgment against him — last month, Anglin was ordered to pay $4.1 million to Dean Obeidallah, who Anglin falsely accused of orchestrating the 2017 bombing of an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.
Police in Germany have removed nearly 200 black crosses put up by patriotic activists in the east of the country.
The spray-painted wooden crosses which mark the lives of Germans murdered by foreigners were fixed to road signs or planted at the roadside, with activists claiming thousands have been killed since 1990.
They have appeared every July since 2014 bearing slogans such as "migration kills", "stop the death of the people" and "we don’t forget German victims of foreigners".
Police are now investigating suspected incitement to "racial hatred".
It comes as the nation’s domestic intelligence agency (BfV) last week raised concerns about the rise of radical groups and designated the Identitarian Movement as an "extreme right-wing organisation".
The security service estimates Germany is home to 24,100 "far-right radicals" – 12,700 of which it classes as posing a "threat".
The BfV intelligence agency said "the group discriminated against non-Europeans and Muslims and as such was incompatible with the constitution".
The official classification makes it easier for the zionist agency to monitor the group’s activities and members – of which it says there are 600 in Germany.
"These verbal fire-raisers question people’s equality and dignity, they speak of foreign infiltration, boost their own identity to denigrate others and stoke hostile feelings toward perceived enemies", said BfV President Thomas Haldenwang.
The Identitarian Movement branded the BfV’s decision disproportionate and driven by political motives linked to anti-right wing hysteria.
"The intelligence agency is not warning about a real danger, but is constructing an extremist apparition and making itself a stooge of the left-wing establishment", it said on its website
"Our actions are subversive and sometimes provocative. But under no circumstances are they anti-constitutional or extremist."
On Saturday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel renewed calls for opposition from all sections of German society against the resurgence of German patriotism.
Merkel’s 2015 open-door migrant policy, which led to the arrival of more than 1 million people, led to a surge in support for anti-migrant groups including the Alternative for Germany party (AfD).
In her speech Merkel said Germans have a "duty" to stand up to "extremism" as she paid tribute to those who opposed NS rule.
"They followed their conscience and thereby shaped a part of Germany’s history that otherwise would have been solely defined by the darkness of National Socialism", she said.
"We, too, have a duty today to stand up against all those tendencies that want to destroy democracy."
A group of activists from Denmark’s Nest 2 carried out a spectacular banner drop from a highway bridge near the town of Farum on 9 July.
The message on the banner, “Mass Immigration = Genocide”, was read by hundreds of commuters on the busy highway. Behind the banner, green smoke from two smoke grenades filled the air while the freedom flags waved in the wind.
