Nazi memelords mock the murder of Heather Heyer by one of their own

Heather Heyer, who lost her life in Saturday’s terrorist car attack in Charlottesville

By David Futrelle

On the neo-Nazi hate site The Daily Stormer, the ISIS-style car attack on a crowd of anti-fascist protesters in Charlottesville yesterday has been the source of great hilarity from the moment it happened.

Site publisher Andrew Anglin mocks the attack, which killed 32-year-old activist Heather Heyer and left many injured, as a “Crashocaust” and jokes in one post that the “very nice car” used in the attack was “worth much more than the life of whoever died.”

Even before the driver of the car was identified as a young man who appears to be a Hitler-obsessed, meme-loving, Trump-supporting neo-Nazi much like them, Anglin’s readers embraced the attack as a great victory for their side.

“God is truly with us today,” someone calling himself AshinFurnacestein declared on the site’s forums. “HAHAHAHAHAHAHA”

“hahahaha YUGE win today for the home team!,” another commenter agreed, “and now they fumbeled in the end zone when a cop bird crashed and burned ahahahahaha  :joy:  God is speedy in his vengeance”

The Stormers quickly turned the attack into an excuse to post the most offensive memes they could imagine.

I’m going to post some of them here, but be warned: they are some of the most rancid, hateful images you will likely ever see, and, save one, I am posting them uncensored. Click away from this post now if the events of the last several days have left you feeling even a little bit fragile.

But this needs to be documented so we know exactly what sort of people we’re dealing with here.

Anglin himself got the meme contest going by posting this:

And things quickly went downhill from there:

Some of the Stormers happily appropriated whatever old memes they could think of.

The Stormers were especially excited to see that at least one of those hit by the car was black.

One memester borrowed the cover of a Cars album:

Another incorporated Anglin himself into his meme:

The worst meme posted? Probably this one, incorporating a famous image of Alan Kurdi, a three-year-old Syrian refugee who drowned in the Mediterranean after the overloaded boat containing him and his parents capsized.

 

There are more memes like this on the Daily Stormer forums, many more. You can find many of them in this forum thread. (This is an archived link that only shows a handful of comments; you will have to go to the direct link to see them all.)

And the Stormers aren’t the only ones turning the car attack that left Heather Heyer dead into what they think are hilarious memes.

On 4chan, one anon posted this:

And on Twitter, meanwhile, white supremacists and shitlords with names like Awakened Saxon and Dan From Kekistan are posting memes of their own:

These, I need hardly remind you, are the people Donald Trump refuses to explicitly denounce with his own big mouth.

Considering every single one of the tiki protesters are getting ousted and identified right now, they won’t be laughing for long.

Thank you for recording these for history. I scrolled past. But it is important to preserve this record. (Hopefully for future trials, but that isn’t likely).

Eugh. I spent the day away form the news and the computer, because I couldn’t take it. Went out with a friend who is pretty much my only true-blue progressive friend left, who doesn’t “Well Actually” me when I call a fascist a fascist. Was sort of dreading coming home to check the news, in fear that something else might have happened.

I don’t know what the phrase “I’ve run out of spoons” means, but I really have run out of them. These guys need to be put in jail.

The Daily Stormer won’t be long for this world if the SPLC pursues all their options for serving Anglin. The pathetic little coward has gone into hiding:

As for the commenters, I don’t wish violence on them. I don’t need to. I can’t think of a worse curse than a long, agonizing lifetime of waking up every morning, looking in the mirror, and seeing only their own hate-filled faces. Yeats said our souls are tethered to dying animals…these guys are animals chained to an already dead soul.

Scildfreja – here’s the origin of spoon theory. It’s a brilliant essay.

How about them getting ridiculed and admonished by society, lose their jobs and be reminded that they’re not free from the consequences of their actions? That seems like a pretty bad curse.

And that shit Spencer too. Someone who was on the scene for both the attack and the night before who was reporting their experience to Pantsuit Nation said that asshole and his ‘security detail’ was there for the gorram tiki torches and the counterprotestor beatings, and the venal little turd lit out as soon as it started getting violent. He’d been obviously helping to incite and ran to preserve his precious plausible deniability. I really wish he’d been punched harder a few months ago.

These syphilitic turds have made their own hell, yes. What I’m scared of is that they’re going to do their best to drag the rest of us down into it with them.

I don’t like the spoon thing. Why can’t I say I don’t have the energy and have people believe me?

@David, you have a “Trumo” where it should say “Trump.”

@Nazis
There are no words for how horrible you are if you think that any of that attack was funny or justified in any way. We will not let you win. History will remember you as the monsters you are.

I just simply don’t believe the story in the spoon essay actually happened, or happened the way it’s told. The best friend acts like a child, and then eventually we’re told this:

She had tears in her eyes and asked quietly “Christine, How do you do it? Do you really do this everyday?”

Yeah, nobody said this, ever, let alone with emotionally moist eyes. The metaphor is useful sometimes and I’ve used it, but I don’t believe the story and I think the story detracts from the metaphor.

Well, finally happened, someone’s continual dismissal and humor on yesterday finally led me to unfriend someone from social media despite thinking that I never would. Fuck him.

But on to my main point. I gave a larger version of this on my personal social media but here goes:

I recently turned 38, that is 6 more years than Heather Heyer will ever see. In addition, the young man who killed her (who’s name I won’t mention) was 20 and if convicted he’ll likely get life so his life is over. Which is not to ignore the 19 lives that will need to be rebuilt (of which, 5 are still in critical condition last year). Given the number of lives lost to the evil virus known as hate (even if the perpetrator self infected) it is not a fucking joke, nor a meme, there are real people’s lives at stake for this.

So, in something I didn’t say before, how can anyone fucking joke about it?

All day I’ve been thinking about this kind of stuff, and about that truly hideous Daily Stormer piece that’s been circulating on Twitter (I’m not sure if it’s linked to in this post since the links aren’t working for me). In that article – and others like it – practically every single sentence is suffused with hate. And then to think, there are people who read articles like that every day. I know it’s a cliche, but I really don’t know how those people function; I’m not saying that to be hyperbolic – it really seems like it would be hard to function if your brain is festering with that much hate all the time.

Yeah, the way the story is presented is kind of Chicken Soup For The Soul-ish, but for me, the spoon metaphor is very effective at getting the point across about how costly even the smallest daily tasks are for people with chronic illness. I took it as a ham-handed parable, where the “friend” she’s trying to convince is really us. Many disabilities aren’t readily apparent, and it can be hard to convince people why you need that extra chair, or that parking space near the door.

@Banananana dakry: They sure are projecting hard, trying to dump their own insecurities onto everyone else. Misery loves company.

Speaking of insecurities, and misery-loves-company recruitment efforts, let’s all take a moment to admire this delusional gem from the Daily Stormer:

To those of you in Charlottesville, go out and enjoy yourselves.

If you’re at a bar in a group, random girls will want to have sex with you. Because you’re the bad boys. The ultimate enemies of the state. Every girl on the planet wants your dick now.

1) Nothing says “bad boy” like a guy in a white polo shirt carrying a mosquito-repellant candle stolen from his dad’s patio.

2) Nothing says “enemy of the state” like cowering amidst a circle of police in riot gear who are there to protect you from getting maced by antifas.

3) And definitely, nothing says “sexyfuntimes” like a Hamilton Swan looklalike in a sweater who wants to use you as a uterus cannon.

That’s not even a story. Nobody, not even most Republicans, are as hateful as Nazis. Hate is their thing.

At this point, Republican and Nazi have become a distinction without a difference. Until the self proclaimed “moderate” Republicans make a serious attempt to excise bigots from their party and bigotry from their platform, I will never hesitate to equate Republicans with Nazis. If they don’t like it?
