Neo-Nazis publish photos, contact info of Jewish residents of Montana town, urge 'action'

A white supremacist website, The Daily Stormer, has issued a "call to action" against Jewish residents of Whitefish, Montana, accusing the "vicious, evil race" of harming the Whitefish business of the mother of Richard Spencer, the white nationalist who popularized the term alt-right, the Missoulian reports. "So then, let's hit em up," The Stormer article urges. "Are y'all ready for an old fashioned Troll Storm?" The article also posted the names, email addresses, phone numbers, and Twitter handles of Whitefish residents it claims are harassing Spencer's mother. More disturbingly, write Keila Szpaller and Gwen Florio of the Missoulian:

The Stormer posted pictures of several Whitefish residents, including a child, with a yellow Star of David with the word "Jude" — German for Jew — added to each photo. During World War II, Jews in Germany and Nazi-occupied territories were forced to wear such stars on their clothing. [Missoulian]

The article includes a disclaimer that The Daily Stormer, which has a "Jewish Problem" section, opposes violence. Earlier this month, Whitefish Mayor John Muhlfeld issued a proclamation repudiating "the ideas and ideology of the white nationalist and so called alt-right as a direct affront to our community's core values and principles."
