(The Daily Beast)   So how's the civil suit against the organizers of the Charlottesville Neo-Nazi Hoedown going? Well, let's put it this way: both Richard Spencer and Christopher "The Crying Nazi" Cantwell have chosen to represent themselves, so yeah, about like that   (thedailybeast.com) divider line

Quite the pair.  You punch Spencer, and Cantwell cries.

I'd call that a win, Subby. And there is no way that candy ass Spencer made it through Chinua Achebe.

It's like the old saying, "He who represents himself in court has a racist scumbag for a client."

Not gonna get my hopes up. The Kyle Tryle in small town WI is showing just how blatant some of these judges are to show they want an acquittal, at any cost.

What makes you think they can FIND an attorney that wants to touch their defense at this point?

Do they have the judge on their team like Rittenhouse?

Don't Troll Me Bro!: Not gonna get my hopes up. The Kyle Tryle in small town WI is showing just how blatant some of these judges are to show they want an acquittal, at any cost.


The Feds are going to get Kyle and his mom on weapons violations, so they are going away for at least 5-8 years.

It's not ideal, but it's not a straight-up win for the Nazis.

And as long as there's an Internet, future employers will know everything about little Kyle. His future as a permanent trailer park resident is pretty much assured.

Is it because no credible lawyer will represent them, or because they don't want to pay for a credible lawyer to represent them?


/It's probably a bit of both.

Diogenes: Quite the pair.  You punch Spencer, and Cantwell cries.


Wait now.

That's just correlation, not necessarily causation.

We need to scientifically punch Spencer, repeatedly, in a controlled environment, to determine if this causes Cantwell to cry.

A sample size of 1000 should be sufficient...  But I am willing to go higher.

The shocking thing is that Glenn Greenwald hasn't offered to represent them pro bono.

Not if they waived their right to council.  Doing so means you cannot appeal on representation, something that every judge explains to people who go that route.

Well, Spencer is broke...  according to himself.

Am I wrong in saying that because it's a civil case, he's not entitled to a public defense?

I'm wondering if this is less the delusional Endeavor that we are assuming and something else instead. Maybe they know that they are screwed and they are using this at the last opportunity to stand up on a soapbox and scream about their hate.

I wish I had your optimism and I hope you end up correct. The branch dildoians walked. They filmed themselves bulldozing federal infrastructure while bragging about how illegal it was. They walked, except the one, who fell face down in the snowy ditch.

Unless you are a Trumper.  Then ALWAYS represent yourself.  For the lulz.

He would have to return to the US. No way he is ever doing that.

He won't get out in time to capitalize on that. He'll be forgotten like Joe the plumber by the next election cycle.

Hell, he might get a speaking gig at the 2024 GOP convention, despite/because of the fact that his sole claim to "fame" is having shot some November-lovers.

Hopefully he's forced to give his speech via stream while wearing a loose orange jumpsuit and slightly-too-tight handcuffs.

If you punch Cantwell, does Spencer cry? We should probably try. You know, for science!

They're not going to jail unless they REALLY piss off the judge.  That may also be a factor in why their behavior.  They know (or hopefully "know") they're judgement proof and think that makes this just another performance

Not to mention, it's a civil case. There is no "conviction."
