Anglin’s attorneys said in their filing that the messages against Gersh were “generally recognized anti-Semitic tropes, without actual harm reasonably to be construed,” according to the filing. “And, even Nazi expression, no matter the psychic harm on Jewish residents, is nonetheless protected speech,” the motion says“Thus, there was no true threat.” The call for a “troll storm,” according to the attorneys is free speech “made on a website to spur others to express their opinions to Plaintiff and her associates” and “to contribute more speech to the marketplace of ideas.” Among the messages sent to Gersh’s private email, according to the Washington Post, are: “Ratfaced criminals who play with fire tend to get thrown in the oven;” “Merry Christmas, you Christ-killer;” “It’s time for you to take a one way ticket to tel aviv;” and “You have no idea what you are doing, six million are only the beginning.” Gersh’s attorneys from the Southern Poverty Law Center have been unable to find Anglin in order to serve him with the lawsuit in a bid to force him to appear publicly in courtThey have posted notices in local newspapers in Ohio, where his family lives, in order to fulfill the legal notice requirements for a lawsuit.
