We Are Raising An Army, My Liege: Cut-Rate Nazi Clowns Found Liable For $26 Million

After a landmark civil trial, a jury has awarded over $26 million in damages against two dozen white supremacist groups for race-related violence against nine plaintiffs at Charlotteville's infamous 2017 Unite the Right rally. Advocates say the chaotic trial, rife with rabid references to Hitler and Jesus, serves as a hopeful template for rendering accountable the hate crimes of sorry-ass-loser Nazis and other "sad little violent white men begging for relevance," even if broke or in prison: "This isn’t about squeezing blood from a stone. It’s about widespread agreement that the stone sucks.”
