Neo-Nazi Site Founder Asks Court To Toss Whitefish 'Troll Storm' Suit

Dec 1, 2017

A neo-Nazi website publisher has asked a federal judge to throw out a lawsuit that accuses him of orchestrating an anti-Semitic internet trolling campaign against a Montana real estate agent and her family.

Lawyers for The Daily Stormer's founder, Andrew Anglin, argued in a court filing Thursday that the First Amendment protects his posts calling for a "troll storm" against Tanya Gersh. Everything Anglin wrote about Gersh was "political speech," his lawyers said.

The Missoulian is reporting that a Whitefish woman’s lawsuit against a Nazi website is going forward.

Seven months ago Tanya Gersh filed suit against Andrew Anglin, publisher of the Daily Stormer website. In May, Gersh told MTPR’s Nicky Ouellet about how The Daily Stormer called for readers to harass her and her family over her dealings with the mother of white nationalist Richard Spencer.

There have been many silent moments in Montana this week.

One in Whitefish Tuesday night was held in honor of people who died and were injured while counter-protesting a white supremacy rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, last Saturday.

Whitefish residents held a "love not hate" rally January 7, 2017 in response to calls from a neo-Nazi website to target locals with anti-Semitic online harassment.
