Journalist who revealed Neo-Nazi creator of Trump’s CNN tweet now receiving death threats

Just like when he previous posted bogus racist crime stats from a White Supremacist site this time following Trump’s not at all veiled threat against CNN using doctored video from his fake WWE fight with Vince McMahon 10 year ago, the Journalist who revealed the frequently racist and sexist neo-Nazi reddit poster who produced the video Trump used has been receiving numerous threats against his life just as anyone with a half-way functioning frontal lobe could have (and many of us did) predict.

Jared Yates Sexton, a journalist who teaches writing and linguistics at Georgia Southern University, reported Sunday that the president had shared an internet meme created by a Reddit user called “HanAssholeSolo.”

That person made frequent racist and threatening posts on Reddit, including one earlier this month identifying Jewish employees of CNN.

Sexton tweeted Monday that he had gotten numerouts threats — often accompanied by antisemitic and Nazi themes — since revealing the meme’s creator.
