Christopher Cantwell, a white supremacist who provided an in-depth description of his racist beliefs of black and Jewish people and explained his movement’s violent goals at the “Unite the Right” rally to Vice News correspondent Elle Reeves, released a video on Wednesday of himself weeping on camera as he discusses a warrant that was issued for his arrest.
“I called the Charlottesville Police Department,” Cantwell said, “and said, ‘I have been told there’s a warrant out for my arrest. They said they wouldn’t confirm it but that I could find this out I could go to a magistrate or whatever.”
“With everything that’s happening, I don’t think it’s very wise for me to go anywhere,” he continued. “There’s a state of emergency, the National Guard is here!”
“I don’t know what to do. I need guidance,” he said as he wiped away tears.
“Our enemies will not stop, they’ve been threatening us all over the place,” he said.
“We are trying to make this peaceful, we are trying to be law abiding,” he claimed.
“I’m terrified,” he said to law enforcement officers in the clip. “I think you’re going to kill me.”
Cantwell defended the killing of Heather Heyer — the 32-year-old woman fatally struck on Saturday by a driver identified as a white supremacist — as “justified,” to Vice News.
Reeves asked whether Cantwell believed white people were capable of violence, to which Cantwell responded, “Of course we’re capable.”
“I’m carrying a pistol, I go to the gym all the time, I’m trying to make myself more capable of violence,” he said.
“I’m not even saying we’re nonviolent,” he said. “I’m saying that f—— we did not aggress. We did not initiate force against anybody. We’re not nonviolent — we’ll f—— kill these people if we have to.”
“Somebody like Donald Trump, who does not give his daughter to a Jew, I don’t think you could feel the way I do about race, and watch that Kushner bastard walk around with that beautiful girl,” he ranted
