Outrage Mounts After Twitter Verifies the Nazi Leader of the Charlottesville Rally

n Tuesday, Twitter gave its famed blue checkmark to white supremacist Jack Kessler. Kessler – the creator behind the incendiary Charlottesville rally that left protestor Heather Heyer dead and had President Trump making such blood boiling questionable remarks as "very fine people on both sides" – had previously deleted the social media platform after tweeting that Heyer “was a fat, disgusting Communist," whose death was “payback time."

Kessler later blamed the comments on a mixture of alcohol and prescription meds, but most people don't magically turn into sexist, racist trolls when they drink or take medication or a combination of both.
