Which bit's fake news? John Rayne Rivello has been arrested and charged with cyberstalking.
With most RWNJs Fake News is just "Stop saying things I don't agree with"



These right wing types are very easily triggered.

Trumpleton arrested after he sent a strobing image to journalist Kurt Eichenwald. Eichenwald has epilepsy and the image triggered a seizure. The trumpleton had posted on Twitter boasting about sending the image and hoping that Eichenwald died from the seizure. He is now looking at 10 years in the slammer.

Eichenwald has been critical of Trump, this is what appears to have inspired the attack.

Classy, these alt-right types.

Why the big cheesy grin? Does trying to kill people amuse you?

PS A friend of mine died during an epileptic attack last year. So it does happen.

I find it amusing how a guy who goes on Twitter to complain about receiving strobe images then wonders why he receives strobe images.

Calling for a campaign of harrasment of an individual is bad enough. When that harrasment deliberately includes something that can cause seizures than may be fatal... that's criminal. I hope they throw the book at him and I hope you're never on the receiving end of such a campaign.

Another 'face of the alt-right' is in a spot of bother...

Interesting insight into the alt-right way of thinking there: If I complain in public about something bad that someone did to me then I should expect that other morons will pile in and do the same thing. Sick.

Nothing to do with alt-right. This is just the way it is on social media, especially Twitter.

She's committed the ultimate alt-right sin and disagreed with a bit of alt-right doctrine.

There's no surprise that Brexit has stirred the pot and even the so-called minorities feel like something is taken away from them.

You honestly think there's a relationship between this attack and Brexit??

Ok Loz, forgive me if I am not that knowledgeable about British realities. If that kind of incidents used to happen long before all those public discussions then I declare myself defeated.

London's been a gang ridden dump since long before Brexit was even a word.

Not Brexit, but the attack was triggered because he said he was a refugee. I think there is lot of tension and hate simmering under the surface of everyday Britain, in part thanks to the alarmist media, the refugee crisis, terrorism, the feeling that migrant workers take all the jobs/opportunities, and the concept of Brexit was fired up on a lot of anti immigrant rehtoric. So it's hardly surprising but nonetheless shocking to see such casual violence committed by a minority on a percieved threat.

Re: All about the alt-right (in the wake of anti-Muslim shooting)

Exactly- perhaps some of you here have not seen the fron cover of the Daily Mail and the Express, day in, day out- blaming immigrants and asylum seekers for all the ills of the UK - stirring, and stirring the pot.

It is very common, all over the world- for one group of 'earlier' immigrants (and possibly those in the attack were 2nd, 3rd, 4th generation) who have suffered from racism and discrimination- to then take it on to another group of newer immigrants. Ever read Arthur Miller's 'View from the Bridge'? The National Front in South of France is composed of a huge % of 2nd, 3rd, 4th generation Italian and Spanish immigrants.

So, Brexit related or not? Very difficult to assess- but if anyone here doesn't realise that it has 'stirred the pot' - they are either very naïve or disingenuous for sure.

Go and Google the front page of the Daily Mail over last year and see- if you haven't already. Sick and shameful.
