Christopher Cantwell (previously at BB) was first seen ranting about Jews at the Charlottesville "Unite the Right" rally and last seen blubbering in a self-pitying video which earned him the sobriquet "The Crying Nazi." Cantwell was found guilty of extortion Monday over a rape threat texted to a man he felt was harassing him.
Cantwell threatened to "dox" the individual, a practice of posting someone's personal contact information online, and report the person to child protective services in a number of messages between June 15, 2019, and June 17, 2019, the U.S. attorney's office said.
"So if you don't want me to come and f— your wife in front of your kids, then you should make yourself scarce," one message said. "Give me Vic, it's your only out."
Prosecutors said they presented evidence during trial that Cantwell followed through on his threats to dox the individual and made a report to child protection authorities in Missouri.
It's always the quiet ones.
