Maybe Christopher Cantwell has finally learned his lesson that 1.) this Bowl Patrol internet drama is stupid, 2.) the FBI isn’t his friend and 3.) that it is a mistake to hang out with these people on Gab and Telegram. He should have focused on his radio show.
“KEENE — Christopher Cantwell, the far-right provocateur known to some as the “crying Nazi”, was arrested Thursday morning by federal agents on charges he made threatening statements online.
Cantwell was indicted on two federal felonies this week, one count of interstate extortion and one count of making threatening interstate communications.
According to the indictment, Cantwell threatened a man using the Telegram Messenger app, posting:
“So if you don’t want me to come and (expletive) your wife in front of your kids, then you should make yourself scarce[.] Give me Vic, it’s your only out.”
It is unclear from the indictment what Cantwell was demanding from the alleged victim in the statement.
Cantwell was using the Telegram app to communicate after he was barred by other platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and even Gab.
Gab had been known a haven for the so-called “alt-right” and is where alleged Tree of Life Synagogue shooter Robert Bowers was known to make anti-Semitic posts. Cantwell was kicked off Gab last year after he reportedly wrote about killing “leftists.” …”
FWIW, I told him all of this.
I just quit posting on Gab after the Robert Bowers shooting.
In the last month, Cantwell, Augustus Invictus and Eli Mosley have all gone to jail on unrelated charges. Jack Corbin has gone to jail mainly for sounding off and saying stupid shit on Gab that a federal judge construed to lock him up during the crackdown on accelerationists. Dozens of people have gone to jail for saying dumb shit to undercover federal agents and informants trying to entrap them in crimes over the past several months particularly on Telegram.
