This is disturbing.
With Donald Trump winning the presidential election, we’ve seen the alt-right crow about the victory and people of color and the LGBT community face harassment from Trump supporters, including the KKK. Now, one Nazi-affiliated website is suggesting its followers try to get people who have expressed fear on Twitter to commit suicide.
As USA Today notes, the Daily Storm—a neo-Nazi website run by Andrew Anglin—published a list of 70 Twitter users who had expressed sadness about the state of America and then urged its readers to badger them into killing themselves.
After publishing the extensive list of frightened Twitter users this week, Anglin wrote:
You can troll these people and definitely get some of them to kill themselves.
Just be like “it’s the only way you can prove to the racists that Hillary was right all along.”
“Mass Suicides After Trump Victory” would be a headline the media would play up, but all it would do would demoralize the left even further.
Then, the website featured a cartoon photo of a tattooed Pepe the Frog pointing a gun at a blindfolded woman.
One of the Twitter users featured on the website spoke to USA Today and said, “I can’t fathom how these people have not only a hate website, they’re saying, ‘Hey go bully these people who have their own opinions. Let’s push them to their breaking point because I think it’s funny and it’s for my entertainment.’ It’s childish and manipulative. These grown men and children should be ashamed of themselves.”
