Are there any words in the English language sweeter than “Christopher Cantwell found guilty?”
A jury in Concord, New Hampshire, on Monday found the racist podcaster guilty of extortion and interstate threats related to a threatening message he sent fellow neo-Nazi Benjamin Lambert, aka “CheddarMane,” in 2019, in an attempt to extort information about rival neo-Nazi Andrew Casarez, aka “Vic Mackey.” …
“So if you don’t want me to come and fuck your wife in front of your kids, then you should make yourself scarce,” Cantwell allegedly wrote in the 2019 message. “Give me Vic, it’s your only out.”
The charges carry a maximum sentence of 22 years.
He’s scheduled to be sentenced sometime next year and will presumably stay in jail (where he’s been since his arrest in January) until them. Cantwell also faces civil lawsuits for his role in the violent “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville in 2017.
While Cantwell has been convicted only for the threats he sent to a fellow alt-rightist, the jury’s decision will bring a certain degree of justice for all of those on the left whom he has harassed, threatened and assaulted over the years.
