A neo-Nazi coward is fleeing a lawsuit filed by a Jewish woman he had harassed online.
Andrew Anglin, one of America’s most notorious anti-Semites, is said to be on the run and in hiding in order to avoid a lawsuit filed by a Montana Jewish woman.
Tanya Gersh, a Jewish real estate agent in Whitefish, Montana, is charging Anglin with orchestrating an anti-Semitic “campaign of terror” that included hateful messages from anonymous internet trolls. She and her family were subjected to a barrage of emails, phone calls, texts and social media comments with messages replete with slurs and Holocaust references.
The trolling campaign started in December after Daily Stormer founder Anglin published the family’s personal information, including the 12-year-old’s twitter handle and photo. In a string of posts, Anglin accused Gersh and other Jewish residents of Whitefish of engaging in an “extortion racket” against the mother of white nationalist Richard Spencer.
Gersh filed a suit against Anglin in April, alleging he had invaded her privacy, intentionally inflicted “emotional distress” and violated a Montana anti-intimidation law, but her lawyers have been unable to track him down in order to serve him with the papers.
“Andrew Anglin knew he had an online army primed to attack with the click of a mouse,” Richard Cohen, president of the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center, which is representing Gersh, stated after the suit was filed. “We intend to hold him accountable for the suffering he has caused Ms. Gersh and to send a strong message to those who use their online platforms as weapons of intimidation.”
