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.

Have you met an abled person? They never believe you don’t have the energy.

Fucking this.

If I say I don’t have the energy, they start trying to convince me that I really do. For some unfathomable reason, saying spoons instead helps them understand. I guess neurotypicals just don’t actually think about things unless you walk them through the entire process while holding their hand and offering them lemon water?

I can’t really speak my truth about the nazis. It would violate the comments policy. I’m just going to point out that they tried again in Montreal. 1 injured, so better. There’s no article about it, I just saw it through social media.

Expect them to keep doing this form of terrorist attack.

I don’t like using the term “spoons” myself because it’s hard to understand what it means unless you’re familiar with the original essay. How else could you make the connection between the thing you eat liquid and/or goopy food with and physical, mental, or emotional energy?

Of course they have to continue their stupid misogynist crap. It’s the only way they can keep pretending they’re doing this for anyone but themselves.

@WWTH

YES, THAT. THAT IS ELOQUENT AND ACCURATE. THAT’S EXACTLY HOW I VIEW IT.

I agree, but I hate that it needs to be that way. Sometimes I’ll say I’m not feeling well, but then they think I’ll get them sick. And if they know about my autoimmune disorder they’ll blame me for eating something wrong even though that’s not the only trigger for it (I think the last attack I had was from too much floride, but you say that and they think you’re a conspiracy theorist). Plus I am extremely careful about what I eat so it’s not like I’m going to sabotage my own health on purpose. And now able-bodied people are starting to use spoons as a way of describing their normal state of tired, so the idea that, no, really, people with invisible illnesses have to be careful about how much energy they spend is being lost.

Edit: @Valentine
That made me tear up a little.

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.

Oh, I can…being a person of colour, or Jew, or LGBTQIA, or any other form of “cuck”, if these creatures get the power they want.

Spoons feel like half-idea to me. I am able-bodied (often very tired but such is my job), but i don’t understand spoons because it seems like they say you will know how many spoons you have. But in real life you do not know – and suddenly – no more spoons. In real life if you have such situation you will not know when you will have no energy, only that some time that day, you will have no any more energy. But with spoons you can say, i have five so i will do five things. That is why to me, seems like it is not fully finished for description of how it will be.

RE: Spoons

It’s not a perfect concept. Valentine raises an excellent point, one that applies to me in my life fairly often.

But it’s meant to get the idea that energy is limited across to neurotypical people who need it explained in the simplest possible fucking terms that not everyone is exactly like them. And it sort of works at that.

I hate it when people preach about how exercise cures depression. That’s semi true for me if it’s outdoors because sunlight helps, but it’s not very fucking helpful if I don’t have the energy to go out and exercise in the first place and it’s really irritating coming from the type A always full of energy sorts of people.

In real life if you have such situation you will not know when you will have no energy, only that some time that day, you will have no any more energy.

That’s true. But for me I’ve gotten to know my limits pretty well by hitting them so often. I can tell when the tank is low, so to speak. When I was a teenager I had more energy for a while (the symptoms started around age 10, but around 14-16 I started having more energy for some reason, maybe hormonal changes?), and I would get the suddenly out of energy thing. But I wake up already low on energy these days. And some days I’m already wishing for bed by noon. I can usually tell when I get up whether I’ll have the energy to make dinner that night, so I’ll conserve energy where I can if I think I’ll need some extra later. Sometimes I misjudge and am suddenly tired when I’ve already accepted an invitation to go out, for example, and then I need to cancel or push myself, depending on how important. But I almost never accept invitations for after work events to avoid this. Same with other things that might depend on a future energy state or might sap some of the energy I’ll need the following day.

I’m sure it’s different for everyone. But where you’re describing a situation like my propane tank gauge–it reads as full right up until the tank is dry, at which point it reads as empty–my gague looks more like a gas tank in a car, where sometimes I swear it drains faster than usual, but it’s usually pretty predictable.

It only happened about 4 hours ago. Supposedly at a demonstration. A pickup truck ran into the counter-protestors and injured somebody. I also haven’t seen an article, so I really should have classed it as unconfirmed.

Someone should create a corollary Fuck Theory. Lately I find myself running out of fucks really, really early in the day.

@Tosca – Fair enough, but I still wouldn’t trade places with them.

I find that there’s an inverse correlation between age and fucks given. I can’t wait until I’m old enough to get away with giving zero fucks at all.

Kupo,

After i read what you wrote, i believe actually it is not about how you describe – spoons, tank of gasoline, any thing – but more that able bodies are not listening. Your description very clear to me. I am sure many people can understand – but when people look like ‘normal’ people not listening, maybe because they think you are lie or it is not serious because nothing to see. (((

When you must to cancel plans that is very hard – people always behave like assholes when you try. And definitely also not listening then when you try to explain. And if you have no any more energy for plans then also you have no energy for explain!

I hope you have good friends who understand and support you. I am not tired but i have problems to explain sometimes to my girlfriend that simply i don’t​ want to see people, but she makes me go anyway then complain that i use my phone and not speak. But very difficult to explain this one, because seems like I hate other people if i say ‘ i don’t want to see you’. ?

I think there’s an exponential relationship between the number of ‘spoons’ I have and the number of fucks I give. As the number of spoons I have decreases, the number of fucks I give decreases exponentially.

(Auto correct really wants me to be giving ducks.)

@Valentine
Are you introverted? If so, show her this: http://m.wikihow.com/Relate-to-an-Introvert

And I have very few friends because it’s too difficult to maintain friendships the way normal people need. I’m happier this way. 🙂

The vileness and hate is one thing. What really gets me is how they seem to think it makes them strong.

They feel powerful because someone else – someone affiliated with their movement, yes, but not actually them – murdered someone with a car. That makes them feel strong.

My Mayor announced my city will be moving Confederate statues to a park. Currently they’re in the center of my city. He made the announcement in solidarity with the counter protesters. My city is being mentioned in alt-right postings. I’m glad the statues are being moved – one overlooks one of the biggest historical slave markets in the south. I just don’t want alt-right pos to come here. In my city, people are happy the statues are being moved. In my state, people are outraged about it. Yes, I live in the same state as Kim Davis. I’m concerned but will march if need be.

There’s also a post by Anglin on the poor woman killed by Fields:

https://archive.is/hVCGM

Some of it is disgusting, like saying Heather Heyer is no big loss because she was 32 and hadn’t bothered to do the one thing women are supposed to do — reproduce. Plus, she was fat and her death “saved us a lot of money” on all the food she’d have to eat. I don’t understand that — do white supremacists believe the paychecks women receive should rightfully belong to men or did they think she was “mooching off the government” or something?

Other parts are just downright bizarre, like the claim that this was a publicity stunt by Dodge because they were sponsoring a drag racing event called “Roadkill Nights” on the same night that Heather was killed (became roadkill, as he so awfully put it). He predicts that soon Dodge will soon advertise Challengers as “fatty smashers.” Despite his delusions, I’m pretty sure Dodge would be happier if he just left them out of his conversations.

Yes, I’m certain that Dodge set this up. It can’t possibly be the case that someone affiliated with their side actually attempted to murder people and succeeded. It must be an advertising ploy, or a false flag, or whatever-the-fuck because even some Nazis realize that this isn’t going to play well on TV.

The main difference between introverted and extroverted people is that an introverted person recharges their energy alone while an extroverted person recharges their energy from going out with others. For an introvert, going to a party saps their energy. For an extrovert it replenishes their energy. It’s nice for me as an introvert that I’m married to an introvert because we both spend our time at home after work doing our own thing, and maybe every couple of months we’ll plan on hanging out with friends.

I wasn’t this angry when Trump got elected I like a lot of people have realitives that signed up to fight for our county against this same evil. And to see a bunch of swastika flags in an American city especially a beautiful state like Virginia made me want to punch my tv.
