After Dean Obeydala wrote an article in "Daily Animal," condemning President Trump's approach to white super-terror in 2017, the site of neo-Nazis Daily Shoot falsely accused Obeidala of attacking Isis.
Now the founder of The Daily Stormer is forced to pay him millions for blurring.
Obeidallah, a comedian and radio host, sues Daily Stormer founder Andrew Anglin for defamation and on Wednesday, a judge ordered Anglin to pay $ 4.1 million
. "The judge apparently found what he did so cruelly that he has given them the most to bring criminal damage, "Obeidala told The Daily Beast.
He said he planned to give the money to organizations struggling with fanaticism.
"This has never been to collect money. If I gather pennies from the Nazis, I will not keep their money. I will give it to organizations fighting hatred and fanaticism, the very groups that the Nazis despise. "
Anglin, who has been in power for over a year, has not testified, even though his father did it. The decision comes as the latest legal strike against Anglin, which is currently avoiding another trial from a Jewish woman who has received death threats after Anglin has attacked her in her place.
In Obeidallah's case, harassment begins after he wrote an article entitled, "Will Donald Trump ever say the words" white supremacy terrorism "?"
"We've had three to four acts of violence, murder, , which were self-proclaimed white supremacy. My thesis was that during his campaign, Trump called for "radical Islamic terrorism." Why would not he say the words "White Outstanding Terrorism?", He said Obeidala, who is a Muslim.

" They made tweets that seemed real about the bombing in Manchester "
Doctor's tweets appeared on the popular Stormer website, which received approximately 3 , 18 million pageviews while the article was active, according to Obeidallah's case. (Stormer lost a significant position after launching his old host.)
Strimer readers grew up sending Obeeidal's death threats. The attacks offended him, he said. While Obedallah had several reservations for a meeting with fans, he said he is more cautious when scheduling meetings with people who communicate online.
Juvaria Khan, a senior attorney for the Muslim lawyer who helped Obeidallah in his case, said: "The court's judgment has sent a strong message of the consequences of the hate speech.
"We live in a climate where people feel encouraged to convey their fanatical views against marginalized communities, including American Muslims," Khan said. "This is a very important victory. We are very proud of our client Dean that he stands up and shows that violence and fanaticism will not be tolerated. "
Obeidala says she hopes victory to be a" road map "for people from other marginalized groups seeking legal action against
" The idea is to send a message: If you attack these groups you despise in my Muslims, or Jews, or the LGBT community or Afro-Americans, we will not shrink, "I said.
"We will hold you accountable by going to the federal courts and leading you, and we will win this decision against you."
