Blogger Chuck Johnson of the Cochran nursing home scandal fame raised $150K for the Nazi website Daily Stormer using Bitcoin and his WeSearchr “bounty site.”

According to The Washington Post, after Charlottesville’s bloody Unite the Right rally in August, technology companies tightened rules against hate speech and banned many extremists from using Web hosting services, social media platforms and online payment systems.

But some on the furthest edges of the political spectrum soon found an effective tool for thwarting this industry crackdown: Bitcoin.

First created in 2009 by an anonymous computer programmer, Bitcoin is a digital currency that is not issued by any government and has no physical manifestation, such as actual coins or bills.

Richard Spencer, a prominent member of the alt-right, a movement that espouses racist, anti-Semitic and sexist views and seeks a whites-only state, had gone as far as declaring Bitcoin “the currency of the alt right,” according to the Post.

Johnson told the Post he has advocated the purchase of Bitcoin since 2015. That’s the year Twitter banned Johnson for soliciting donations for “taking out” a Black Lives Matter activist. (Johnson said afterward that he was seeking not to incite violence but to spur an investigation he believed would undermine the activist.)

Johnson said he has made substantial earnings on Bitcoin investments and increasingly uses it to make donations to political leaders and groups, presumably Chris McDaniel of Mississippi.

“It’s a form of digital gold,” Johnson said. “It’s not surprising that a lot of people on the political fringes would move toward an un-censorable currency.”

We’re certainly no fan of Black Lives Matter and don’t dispute Mr. Johnson’s right to Tweet what he pleases, but we draw the line on fundraising for Nazi websites like Daily Stormer.

Johnson recently posted on social media that he is gearing up to come back to Mississippi and stir up things.

Does he mean breaking into a nursing home?

We’d advise Mr. Johnson and his Nazi-loving friends to stay out of Madison County or we’re going to lock you up.

Better stay out of Mississippi.
