Wait, didn't they try this before?

It seems that the SPLC can't take a joke. The Jewish activist organization has decided to sic their most venomous lawyers onto world famous troll Andrew Anglin in an attempt to ruin the shitposting manlet, following a campaign he organized last year to troll Jewish real estate agent Tanya Gersh. That was allegedly in response to a campaign started by Ms. Gersh against Richard Spencer's mother, Sherry Spence, who owns property in Whitefish Montana, where Gersh lives. 

Anglin's troll campaign involved threatening a legal armed march through Whitefish, which never materialized, and inviting his followers to share their opinions with Ms. Gersh, her family, and her associates. As reported on the SPLC website:

"The Southern Poverty Law Center, along with its Montana co-counsel, filed suit in federal court today against the founder of a major neo-Nazi website who orchestrated a harassment campaign that has relentlessly terrorized a Jewish woman and her family with anti-Semitic threats and messages. The lawsuit describes how Andrew Anglin used his web forum, the Daily Stormer – the leading extremist website in the country – to publish 30 articles urging his followers to launch a 'troll storm' against Tanya Gersh, a real estate agent in Whitefish, Montana. Gersh, her husband and 12-year-old son have received more than 700 harassing messages since December. The intimidation began after Anglin accused Gersh of attempting to extort money from the mother of Richard Spencer. The younger Spencer heads the National Policy Institute, a white nationalist organization."
The lawsuit is unlikely to succeed, as trolling is too recent a phenomenon to be properly codified in the law books yet, and Anglin is generally careful with respect to already existing laws. Perhaps the main effect of the case will be to quash persistent rumours that Anglin himself is a Jew whose primary function is to infiltrate and discredit White Nationalism by using frequent racial slurs and Nazi imagery.
