Neo-Nazi Andrew Anglin Cheers On Anti-Muslim Harassment As Reports of Attacks Mount
Just two days after Donald Trump's election, reports are coming in from across the nation suggesting a sharp rise in anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant attacks.
The reports are coming as some figureheads of the Alt-Right celebrate Trump’s election and encourage their followers to instill “fear” in hearts of their racial enemies.
On Daily Stormer, publisher Andrew Anglin, has gone far beyond online celebration and, in fact, has encouraged street action.
“I am of course against any violence against these people,” Anglin wrote in a blog post. “However, I do think you should yell at them in people [sic], tell them to go home. ... I encourage you to do that with any foreigners you see, especially those wearing Islamic clothing.” He added, “We want these people to feel unwanted. We want them to feel that everything around them is against them. And we want them to be afraid.”
A spike in anti-Muslim attacks over the last two days also has been reported by Think Progress.
