In the week since “Unite the Right” protest in Charlottesville on Monday:
- Four of the men who marched in defense of Gen. Robert E. Lee’s statue no longer have jobs: a roofer, a pizza shop employee, a supermarket employee, and a hot dog shop employee.
- 18 year old white supremacist Boston College sophomore-to-be, who marched in Charlottesville, is dropping out of BC after blowback, claiming it would hurt his “brand” to remain
- Last we heard from Christopher Cantwell—the lead subject of Vice‘s chilling report from Charlottesville—he was holed up in a hotel and weeping into his cell phone. The dating site OKCupid has apparently “banned him for life.”
- The Daily Stormer no longer has a home on the open internet: GoDaddy and Google, as well as Cloudflare, have all severed their ties with the site.
- VDare, a more thinky group that advocates racial separatism in order to preserve white civilization/culture, had its Paypal account suspended and lost its booking at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort in Colorado Springs, where it planned to hold its annual conference.
- Milo Yiannopoulos had his MailChimp account shut down.
- In an interview with The American Prospect (of all places), former Breitbart CEO Steve Bannon–the alt right’s paladin in the White House— described the marchers in Charlottesville as “a collection of clowns” and “losers”
- All of this is probably insult heaped on injury for the National Policy Institute’s Richard Spencer, whose gym cancelled his membership back in May.
