Albermarle County police department has confirmed that Chris Cantwell was arrested a little before 2am Monday morning at a bus stop near the town of Esmont. He is charged with two felony counts of illegal use of explosives as well as illegal use of gases and injury by caustic agent.
This has been quite a chain of events for poor Chris Cantwell. Let’s take a step back so we can view this all full circle.
“For a few triumphant hours, Cantwell was the thick-armed embodiment of white nationalism to tens of millions of people – the star of VICE News and HBO’s Web documentary about last weekend’s rallies, which has been seen more than 30 million times.
He looked every bit the rebel leader in that footage from Friday night and Saturday, greeting other white nationalists from as far away as Canada; marching by torchlight to the statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee; screaming “Jews will not replace us!”
“I carry a pistol. I go to the gym all the time,” Cantwell tells the camera, muscles bulging beneath a shirt that advertises his blog, which in turn advertises Cantwell as a libertarian “fascist.”
“I’m trying to make myself more capable of violence!” he says.” – Denver Post
This picture painted by the Denver Post is exactly what we all thought of this self-proclaimed Neo Nazi. At first glance it all seems expected. Neo Nazi talks a big game, gets a big scary reputation, and he gets to feel a little better about his tiny johnson. But then things took a surprising, and wildly comical turn-
In the video below you can watch Chris Cantwell’s reaction to finding out there was a warrant put out for his arrest, versus how he acted on camera for HBO’s Vice:
Talk about a 180. Let’s break this down piece by piece
A quote from Chris Cantwell as he chokes back tears- “We are trying to make this peaceful, we are trying to be law abiding, and our enemies will not stop, what options do we have left?”
Trying to make what peaceful? Your assertion that Whites are superior? It is mind-boggling stupid that you don’t see the inherit conflict in that. Does a car jacker get a medal for peacefully stealing a car? What you are doing is still disgusting you narrow minded twat. And the fact that you are crying over this like you just got screwed in a game of Mario Party really makes me think you have some sort of mental illness. What options do you have left? You can stop being a piece of shit for starters. You can plead guilty since Chris Cantwell arrested and charged is what everyone always wanted.
The way he talks about dying for the cause like it is nothing, and then the cut away to him sniffling over an arrest warrant. Jesus Christ. Great editing, it really shows just how pathetic this guy is.
But it does raise a question.
Why would he act so tough for HBO if in reality he is just a little wimp? I mean, this wouldn’t be the first time someones mouth has written a check their ass can’t cash, but this guy was literally saying the driver who ran over protesters was justified. That kind of rhetoric is as far alt-right as it gets. That’s beyond a hot take, it is a political statement. Little did he know it was enough to get Chris Cantwell arrested
So does he not understand the magnitude of his statements here? Or does he just think it doesn’t matter and he can say whatever he wants on an HBO documentary with no repercussions? Maybe he never knew what HBO even was.
Oh and also he vapes…
When you see him talk so casually about other people dying, and then see him literally crying over the thought of himself dying… it’s just.. I don’t know. This guy is a bad egg. Maybe he is mental, maybe he is evil, but lock him up because we don’t have time to figure it out. He got arrested for using gas and explosives to hurt protesters. And THAT was enough to get Chris Cantwell arrested. And getting Chris Cantwell arrested was what we needed.
Expect to see that video in court as his defense team tries to prove his insanity.
