Elon Musk just let a notorious neo-Nazi troll return to Twitter

Andrew Anglin ― a notorious neo-Nazi whose anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, white supremacy hate speech, and alt-right trolling have been deemed so dangerous that courts have ordered him to pay millions of dollars to his victims ― was welcomed to Twitter on Thursday evening after a nearly decade-long ban from the social media platform.

His return is apparently part of new Twitter owner Elon Musk’s effort to restore ‘freedom of speech’ to the platform, even if it means welcoming back the likes of Anglin who instigated bombardment of journalists from threatening tweets.

“I removed all the old stuff that was on this account. I will strictly follow whatever the rules are. If I get banned, it’s not for anything I said, it’s just because I follow me,” tweeted Anglin, who is best known for creating The Daily Stormer, an influential neo-Nazi website named after a Nazi propaganda newspaper. Twitter banned Anglin in 2013, the year he launched his site. , and he is currently hiding.

Since his reinstatement, Anglin has voiced his support for Kanye West, who now goes by the name Ye, with several tweets and a “YE24” in his bio, referencing the rap mogul’s stated intention to run for president in 2024. It comes a day after Ye launched a disturbing tirade declaring his ‘love’ for Adolf Hitler and the Nazis, saying the German dictator ‘seems like a cool guy’ and denying that Hitler oversaw the massacre of 6 million Jews and others during the Holocaust. Musk has since suspended the rapper from Twitter, saying Ye tweeting an image of a swastika inside the Star of David violated the platform’s rules against inciting violence.

“Saying you love Hitler isn’t even a big deal. Nobody cares. The man died 80 years ago.

– Andrew Anglin on his first day back on Twitter

On his first full day back on Twitter, Anglin said the reaction to Ye’s comments was overblown.

“Saying you love Hitler isn’t even a big deal. Nobody cares. The man died 80 years ago,” he tweeted.

It’s a puzzled stance from a man who clearly cares about Hitler, whether he admits it or not. Many of his comments over the years seem to come straight from the notorious dictator’s playbook, writing in 2016 that the goal of the alt-right movement is to “ethnically cleanse white nations of non-whites and establish authoritarian government. . Many people also believe that the Jews should be exterminated.

Some of the headlines Anglin posted on his website, which helped fuel the deadly 2017 “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, include “All the Smart People in History Disliked Jews” and “Adolf Hitler: The Most Lied About Man Ever.”

In 2016 he called on his followers to unleash a ‘storm of trolls’ against estate agent Tanya Gersh, her husband and 12-year-old son, accusing her of trying to drive the mother of white nationalist Richard Spencer out of Whitefish , Montana. A judge ruled in 2019 that he should pay her $14 million in damages. However, Anglin refused to appear in court and his whereabouts remain unknown. A judge issued an arrest warrant for him last month for his refusal to comply with a court order.

In another 2019 decision, a judge ordered Anglin and others behind The Daily Stormer to pay $725,000 in damages to a black American University student for launching a trolling campaign racist and sexist against her.

Some of Anglin’s most egregious calls for violence have focused on women.

“Listen, I hate women. I think they deserve to be beaten, raped and locked in cages,” he said in 2018. On another occasion, he wrote, “Women crave men who call them stupid and claim that they should have no rights. They also want to be tied up, beaten and raped.

On his newly restored Twitter account on Friday, Anglin complained that he had been the victim of “mass spamming” – the very thing that landed him in court – and that his past comments were misinterpreted jokes.

“You guys are completely out of whack, spamming me en masse with death threats, saying I deserve to be murdered because you uncharitably interpreted jokes I made years ago,” he said. he writes.
