UNR Student Receives Death Threats After Charlottesville Torch March

Cvjetanovic told the station over the phone he was present to protest the removal of a statue commemorating Lee in Charlottesville.

"As a white nationalist, I care for all people", Cvjetanovic said in Channel 2 News. There are flaws to it, of course.

"These people went with the intention of making a statement and I think they should have expected to be in pictures", Allison Matherly, coordinator of digital engagement at Texas Tech University told NBC News.

But as more people post videos and photos online, some media experts expect social media outing to grow. I think if they are so proud of their beliefs and proud to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with neo-Nazis and KKK members and white supremacists of all stripes, then I think their communities need to know who they are.

"They are slandering me and that I'm racist without evidence because I talk about history and I talk about American politics".

"I have received death threats", said Cvjetanovic, who plans to report to the Reno Police Department at least five instances that he feels are legitimate threats.

On Twitter aggrieved whites have been attracted to discussions of "white genocide", the notion that increased societal diversity threatens the future of the white race, according to the George Washington study, written by JM Berger, an expert on United States extremist movements. "White nationalists aren't all hateful; we just want to preserve what we have".

The University of Nevada has said they will not expel him, despite a petition demanding it do so, citing his First Amendment rights and his clean record as a student.

But a small but dedicated army of social media users and others have been hoping to force more of Cvjetanovic's compatriots into the open, trading tips on exposing their identities and spreading photos of their unmasked faces as far as possible.

They didn't wear hoods as they chanted "Jews will not replace us".

White was in Charlottesville for the "Unite the Right" rally, which turned deadly on Saturday. "They're not afraid anymore", said Logan Smith, who runs the "Yes, You're Racist" Twitter account.

For Quinn, there were obvious drawbacks to public shaming on social media, especially if users aren't getting the names right. James Alex Fields Jr., 20, who was described as a Nazi sympathizer by one of his high school teachers, is accused of ramming his auto into a group of counterprotesters, injuring 19 and killing Heather Heyer, 32. "We denounce any movement that targets individuals due to the color of their skin, their religious beliefs, political beliefs, sexual orientation, ability/disability, or whether they were born in our country".

A Twitter account, "Yes You're Racist" posted a photograph Saturday of Cvjetanovic with Senator Dean Heller. Having been raised to believe in their own entitlement, white people are also taught to fear those of us here to "take it away".

Smith has made several mistakes, according to NPR ― he tweeted a photo taken at a Trump rally from several months ago that featured a man wearing a Nazi armband who apparently had done so as a "social experiment".

He also doesn't seem himself as a racist, but a firm believer in white power.
