Finalmente los antifos no acudieron y Stick Man acabó celebrando una nueva victoria.
Blood was streaming from Marshall’s boyfriend’s nose, which looked like it might be broken. They left the rally and went to a hospital. After she got in the car, she checked her phone. Hate emails started streaming in. “Would you be interested in doing a role play photoshoot,” read one she later forwarded to me, “where you are being beaten and raped (simulated), by a group of white nationalists?” “I absolutely love watching you get punched in your ugly ass face on YouTube. I can watch it over and over,” another read. “Might I suggest leaping your ugly, hairy ass from a tall building? Or, perhaps, swallow a bottle of sleeping pills? How’s it feel to finally be treated like a man? Haha.” Since then, she says she’s received more than 1,500 harassing or threatening messages via email, Facebook, and Instagram.
How did they know who Marshall was, and so quickly? One emailer signed off, “Praise Kek and Hail Victory,” hinting at the source of the storm. “Kek” is the god of a satirical religion that originated in the meme-driven world of 4chan, the online message board popular among the so-called alt-right.
Archived 4chan threads provide a glimpse into workings of the alt-right hive mind on the day of the Berkeley showdown. “Looks like a rat faced kike,” one commenter wrote shortly after the punching video was posted. Threads discussing the video became interspersed with memes of cartoon Jews with oversized noses. “That Jew whore thought she was the Jew bear,” one poster wrote. (Marshall is not Jewish.) Within hours of her getting punched, people on 4chan and other message boards publicized Marshall’s home address and contact information for her parents, grandmother, and 15-year-old brother. They discovered that she’d appeared in pornography. They turned explicit images of her into memes and posted links to her sex videos on her grandmother’s Facebook page. Before Marshall got back to Los Angeles that Saturday night, her mom had received so many calls that she’d unplugged the phone.[/quote]
The first degree is declaring yourself a Proud Boy, the second is getting the cereal beat-in, and the third is adhering to the masturbation regimen and getting a tattoo. Now the fourth degree is brawling with antifascists. [/quote]
Despite being almost religiously devoted to Donald Trump during his presidential campaign, the legions of online racists referred to as the “alt-right” have already decided to move on to their next big project: sparking widespread political conflict that they hope to turn into a nationwide race war.[/quote]
