How nice: Twitter account that hunts down and ‘outs’ racists

[Ed. – The Post covers this Twitter account in the narrow context of exposing white supremacists who took part in the rally in Charlottesville. But it’s far more insidious than that. It’s the next best thing to liberal sites that expose fake news (translation: any news source that isn’t part of the MSM and Huffington Post and its imitators).

White nationalists who appeared at the deadly demonstrations in Charlottesville are being outed on social media — with at least one being fired from his job after his name and picture was posted online.

Cole White, of California, was axed from his restaurant position in Berkeley on Sunday just hours after being publicly identified by a Twitter account known as “Yes, You’re Racist.”

The page has been putting “Unite the Right” protesters on blast following their violent, hate-fueled rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Friday night and Saturday.

“If you recognize any of the Nazis marching in #Charlottesville, send me their names/profiles and I’ll make them famous,” the user wrote to its more than 180,000 followers.

So far, they’ve succeeded in getting at least one white nationalist fired — and another shamed by thousands.

Peter Cvjetanovic, 20, has gotten so much backlash as a result of “Yes, You’re Racist” identifying him on Saturday night as one of the “angry” torchbearers from Friday’s Emancipation Park rally that he tried to clear his name in an interview with a local TV station in his home city of Reno, Nevada.
