The Curious Case of Christopher Cantwell

Originally published at: http://freekeene.com/2017/08/16/the-curious-case-of-christopher-cantwell/

Only advocates of peace are allowed to blog at FreeKeene.comThis week the Keene Sentinel published a front-page article about Christopher Cantwell, a racist, white-supremacist podcaster who lives in Keene. Unfortunately the Sentinel’s original version of the article, which appears in the print edition, erroneously claims that Chris Cantwell was a Free Keene blogger. Thankfully, the…

How did you not ask about the car crash?

Did Chris get arrested yet?

I wonder how long Chris will be able to keep DNS service for his domain.

Godaddy is the registrar, and Cloudflare provides the nameservers and other services. It’s just a matter of time. It will probably only take one complaint.

We didn’t? Huh.

Not arrested yet.

Guess I need to listen again.

Kicked off OkCupid

Racists need to date too. This is a great opportunity to start a dating website for white nationalists. Okkkcupid.com is already taken.

Officials from the Virginia Commonwealth Attorney’s Office said Thursday that Cantwell is wanted for illegal use of gases, and injury by caustic agent or explosive. Both are felony charges, officials said.

Each felony has a minimum sentence of 5 years.

It was special agent Phil Christiana of the FBI that called Chris to let him know the arrest warrant was legit.

If he isn’t already a confidential informant, they are probably putting pressure on him to become one, or will soon. He has a minimum of 10 years in jail threat leveled against him.

I’m not happy with this kind of trash, but I think you have to allow them to talk themselves into a corner. Censorship ends badly. Censoring anyone or anything opens the door to subjective reasons to censor, and the next thing you know, they’re censoring people simply because they don’t like the truth.

I agree.

I always liked seeing Daniel Carver the KKK guy on the Howard Stern show.

I wish Howard Stern can still be this entertaining.

I haven’t been able to listen to Howard Stern for about 20 years. I like him the best in the early 90s. He is probably the first talk radio I listened to.

Lots of media are making Antifa out to be heroes, justified in whatever violence they did. They don’t even question obvious bullshit.

Corey Long claims he was shot at by a white nationalist. I have never seen a crowd stand around after a gun goes off. Seems like this guy should be getting arrested if Chris will be. Corey’s story is obviously bullshit.

The Anti-cantwell rally in Boston is insane. I could be selling so much weed there right now.

“There’s not actually any Nazis out there–well I guess there are.”

Dude, there’s about 12–prolly a lot more commies.

I think I only saw one nazi flag at the charlotsville event. I did see multiple nazi salutes.

A guy named Mark Bray has been advocating violence against fascists.

Mark is a visiting professor at Dartmouth.

Mark Bray is a historian of human rights, terrorism, and political radicalism in Modern Europe. He completed his PhD in Modern European and Women’s and Gender History at Rutgers University in 2016, and is currently finishing his manuscript “The Anarchist Inquisition: Terrorism and the Ethics of Modernity in Spain, 1893-1909.” “The Anarchist Inquisition” explores the emergence of groundbreaking human rights campaigns across Europe and the Americans in response to the Spanish state’s brutal repression of dissent in the wake of anarchist bombings and assassinations. At GRID, he will begin work on his next project which explores the cultures of violence and street resistance that emerge in the social movements of postwar Western Europe and their impact on conceptions of leftist masculinity in the context of the emergence of competing conceptions of feminism. Bray is the author of Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook (Melville House, 2017) and Translating Anarchy: The Anarchism of Occupy Wall Street (Zero Books, 2013) as well as the co-editor of the forthcoming Francisco Ferrer and the Modern School (PM Press, 2018).

Chris Cantwell Arrested For Use Of Explosives
Albermarle County police department has confirmed that Chris Cantwell was arrested a little before 2am Monday morning at a bus stop near the town of Esmont. He is charged with two felony counts of illegal use of explosives as well as illegal use of gases and injury by caustic agent.

My local TV station, WMTW, played a short segment on the morning news about the arrest warrants being issued.

“Contacted by The Associated Press, Cantwell acknowledged he had pepper-sprayed a counter demonstrator during a protest but insisted he was defending himself, saying he did it “because my only other option was knocking out his teeth.””

Is this why lawyers tell people to keep their mouths shut? Because that would have been a good time for him to, lol…

That’s really a clever statement. That’ll get him real time, and I guess, street cred with the Wonderbread Klan.

Chris turned himself in. It was on the front page of the CNN website last night. Pepper spray is pretty mild compared to some of the other stuff that went on.

The gov. wants more arrests.

Corey Long with “defending” an old homeless man with spray paint on fire earlier in the day. He is one of Deandre Harris’s friends. Corey starts the garage brawl by trying to take a confederate flag.

Deandre Harris with a maglite a few minutes before the parking garage brawl.

Corey Long trying to steal a confederate flag, and Deandre Harris hitting the guy with a maglite. This is in front of the parking garage where a brawl breaks out, and Deandre gets a beat down.

And the aftermath

In Deandre’s words

Deandre raised $166k

He says his friends helped him escape, but the racists let him run away after the beat down for about 30 seconds. His friends didn’t come back to help him, they took off.
