White supremacist Florida man known as 'Antifa hunter' gets three years for online racist threats

PUBLISHED 20 MINUTES AGO

A Florida man who called himself “the Antifa hunter” as he waged an online campaign to terrorize and harass those who opposed his white supremacist ideology was sentenced on Monday to more than three years in prison.

Daniel McMahon, 32, of Brandon, Florida, pleaded guilty in April to using social media to threaten a Black activist to deter the man from running for office in Charlottesville, Virginia. McMahon also admitted that he threatened to sexually assault the young autistic daughter of a North Carolina woman who protested against white nationalists.

A federal judge in Virginia sentenced McMahon to three years and five months in prison. McMahon declined an opportunity to make a public statement beforehand, but he heard from his victims during the hearing, which was conducted remotely by video conference.

In a written statement read aloud by a court employee, the North Carolina woman said McMahon methodically “cultivated a culture of fear and chaos” in her community of anti-racist activists.

1. And in the first day he's greeted as a hero the white gang, and making contacts fon...

when he gets out.

Prison these days is often not so much punishment as connections.

10. This is the face of the Mango Menace's MAGATs.

He's probably going to Florence ADX, where he will spend 23 hours a day in his cell with 1 hour of yard time by himself, and no contact with other prisoners.

He should have gotten more time, but at least he'll be off the streets for awhile now.

7. He likes fascists, huh?

Every self-loathing Trump supporter would I guess. These morons still don't know there's no card-carrying organization called 'Antifa'? You just can't reach some people I guess.

He looks so nice in his orange jumpsuit. He'll have a full dance card at the Prisoner's Ball.

8. NEWFLASH TO BULLIES!

You are not free to bully people. This idiot apparently didn't know that in the State of Florida, they designate assault in two categories...."simple" and "felony". EITHER of which, IF CONVICTED, REQUIRE BOTH a fine AND a PRISON SENTENCE. You can not harass, intimidate or bully anyone if you LIVE in Florida. Assault and battery are crimes that all states have ordinances against and in some states that includes "VERBAL" assault. The degree of which varies from state to state.

11. Florida?

What does Florida have to do with this
Because the crimes crossed state lines, the Feds prosecuted him.

He was sentenced by a Fed. Judge,

so, if I'm reading this right, the State of FL. didn't prosecute him, the Feds did.

16. He'll Link Up With The Nations

They'll welcome him with open arms.
He better take the help, because if he doesn't, the black gangs will slap him senseless, daily!
