A prominent white supremacist from Florida has been arrested for making racist and violent threats to the co-founder of Black Lives Matter in Charlottesville, Virginia, who was considering a run for Charlottesville City Council. The threats forced the activist, Don Gathers, to drop out of the race. The white supremacist, Daniel McMahon, has a long record of threatening violence against antiracists and anti-fascists. He once dubbed himself the “antifa hunter.” Several of his online posts were shared by the man who attacked the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, killing 11 Jewish worshipers.
