On Episode 65 of sh!tpost, Jared Holt walks through news updates on the president’s racist tweets, Proud Boys, QAnon, and the smear that Rep. Ilhan Omar secretly married her brother. We’re joined by HuffPost reporter Luke O’Brien for a debrief on the state of neo-Nazi blogger Andrew Anglin and his website The Daily Stormer, which were recently ruled against in court to the tune of $18,000,000 in damages to two plaintiffs. O’Brien will walk us through the lawsuits, what’s happened since, and where the world’s most-read neo-Nazi blog goes from here.
