Tanya Gersh Lies About Her Actions That Caused The “Trollstorm”

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

In perpetually-clueless The Guardian, Montana realtor Tanya Gersh — best known for her attempt to extort money from Richard Spencer’s mother — whines about how she has been made accountable:

The post on the Daily Stormer last December claimed I had been trying to extort and threaten the mother of Richard Spencer, a white nationalist whose family has a vacation home in our town. It had a photograph of me and contact information: phone numbers, email addresses, and links to social media profiles for me, my husband, my friends, my colleagues. It had my son’s Twitter handle. He is 12 years old.

…Do we tell our children that we’re running in the middle of the night because we’re Jewish?

There are too many lies so far, so we are going to stop there. First and foremost: are you running because you are Jewish, or because you committed the Federal crime of extortion in collusion with a Leftist terror group?

Here is the vital quotation from Richard Spencer’s mother:

On November 22, Gersh and I spoke on the phone. She relayed to me that if I did not sell my building, 200 protesters and national media would show up outside — which would drive down the property value — until I complied.

Tanya Gersh does not refute this statement anywhere. By doing so, she admits it is true. She spins it slightly different, but never refutes it.

However, she wants to shift the blame to anti-Semitism — admittedly a component of The Daily Stormer — instead of her own actions.

Jewish people may be as self-destructive as whites, which makes sense since Jewish people are just white people with an additional 2-5% of Semitic DNA.

Gersh, by denying the actual complaint and blaming anti-Semitism, is weakening every case of outrage at actual anti-Semitism. She broke the law. Deflecting from that will make people very angry. This is how Holocausts happen, just like the 40% participation in the Communist Party by 2% of the general population made it all too easy for people to buy into the anti-Semitism and go along with the raging mob.

Then, with no warning, Sherry Spencer published a post on Medium attacking me and telling a twisted version of our interactions.

Gersh seems to forget her own statements:

“She (Sherry) is profiting off of the people of the local community, all the while having facilitated Richard’s work spreading hate by letting him live and use her home address for his organization.”

She contradicts herself and in doing so, proves that her statements in The Guardian are lies.

That being said, Amerika stands against anti-Semitism. Jews act in self-interest like every other group, and the solution as Theodor Herzl said is nationalism, or relocation of Jews to a land of their own where they are safe. (The last part is crucial; they are not “safe” while Palestinians, Syrians and others are raging around with homemade missiles and suicide attacks.)

We also do not take the position of The Daily Stormer, although we do not support the lawsuit against them either. The correct response to abusive and criminal realtors like Tanya Gersh is to submit a complaint to the regulatory board. Note: she has not been prosecuted for her extortion attempt.

Instead of acknowledging her own failings, Ms. Gersh and those who support her have embarked upon a disastrous lawsuit which can only end badly:

Andrew Anglin, publisher of far-right site Daily Stormer, has been sued in Federal Court today for $300,000, stemming from his reporting about Tanya Gersh, a Montana real estate agent who he accused of attempting to extort Richard Spencer’s mother into selling a Whitefish, Montana property. In the lawsuit, Anglin is accused of creating a “troll storm” against Gersh that caused her emotional distress and anxiety.

…The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Montana, Missoula Division, seeks compensatory and punitive damages. It accuses Anglin of invading Gersh’s privacy and intentionally inflicting emotional distress. It also outlines how his campaign violated the Montana Anti-Intimidation Act.

If the courts approve of this suit, they are going to open the door to infinite frivolous lawsuits by people enraged at their clashes with others. After all, what did Gersh lose? She received threatening messages by phone, email and social media. She lost her job, but then again, she also committed a crime, so Gersh losing her real estate license or job is hardly Anglin’s fault. It is Gersh’s fault.

On the other hand, if the court refuses this case, they may open the door to more online harassment. Then again, one wonders if that cat can be put back in the bag, since too many people rely on online information as “true” and not enough realize that it is the new daytime television, i.e. of dubious truth value at best.

In the bigger picture, however, the truth is plain: Gersh is not a good actor here; in fact, she is committing what can only be viewed as extortion. American courts are unwilling to raise this case because they fear violating political correctness.

At Amerika, we both reject trollstorms and think Tanya Gersh belongs in jail. Sherry Spencer did not deserve this attack, which leveraged the threat of Leftist rioters against her, and Richard Spencer should be able to speak his mind without all of these puny, parasitic people attacking him.

All of this is more evidence that America the nation ended years ago. There was a chance for a nation here, but instead, we divided it up into special interest groups, and now they are warring it out in court, essentially passing the costs on to the rest of us. As Roosh V elaborates:

As for prudent measures to protect yourself, I recommend not criticizing or speaking against individual Jews in the United States, who can reach out to multiple organizations with deep pockets. Jews are a privileged group that can not be criticized like heterosexual men or white people can by the media or organizations like the SPLC, which came after me in 2012. This lawsuit proves that even a middle class Jewish woman in the middle of Montana has the full backing of the powerful Jewish lobby—with tens of millions of dollars in the bank—to attack her enemies.

He’s right, but we should elaborate on this: Jews are only one of the many special interests dividing America. GMO foods, elderly pensions, women, military contractors, Hispanics, the pharmaceutical industry, minority races, minority religions and mothers against drunk driving all have their advocacy groups, donors and lobbyists. This is how democracy always ends, as a de facto oligarchy that becomes so chaotic it culminates in tyranny.

In the meantime, the actual problem remains unaddressed. Sherry Spencer should not have been persecuted for her son’s beliefs. Tanya Gersh (and others) did the persecution. We need to end the situation where people can be attacked for their beliefs alone, and grow up and accept differences in thought.

Leftists Bully Richard Spencer’s Mother For Their Own Profit

Saturday, December 17th, 2016

Tanya Gersh, a realtor in the Whitefish, Montana region, decided to join the Leftist herd and attack Richard Spencer’s mother — by attacking a property she owned from which profit could conveniently be made. As Sherry Spencer writes:

These threats came from Tanya Gersh [email her], a local realtor with links to “human rights” organizations Love Lives Here [Phone: 406-309-5678; email them] and the Montana Human Rights Network [Phone:406-442-5506, email them].

On November 22, Gersh and I spoke on the phone. She relayed to me that if I did not sell my building, 200 protesters and national media would show up outside — which would drive down the property value — until I complied. Gersh’s other conditions included that I make a public denunciation of my son in a statement written by the Montana Human Rights Network and that I make a donation to this organization from the sale of the property. As Gersh announced on Facebook, she was “spear heading” the campaign.

Gersh followed up on her conditions in a number of emails, which I’ve just made public. She even shamelessly suggested that she act as my realtor! In other words, she and the local “human rights” organizations appeared to seek financial benefit from threats of protests and reputation damage.

This is a classic liberal hijack: we have a pretext to seize your stuff because you have offended the Crowd, and therefore, we are going to do so in a way that benefits us. They are simply parasites; the “human rights” nonsense is merely a photo opportunity and a justification for then going on the attack.

Even looking at the websites suggest that these organizations are a scam: peace symbols, hearts and buzzwords. They sell a product called “moral pretense,” and it allows lonely and lost people to claim their lives are important because they are “different” and “good,” even though actual goodness would require fixing their personal disaster lives. But the product sells.

In the Leftist arc, the Tanya Gersh attack does not represent desperation, but disintegration. There is no longer enough motivating force to hold them together toward an actual goal, so instead they are content to be used by business for the purpose of personal profit. While their attack appears stronger than ever to outsiders, it suggests that there is weakness within.

None of this will stop them from terrorizing Sherry Spencer. She took the sensible, Trump-style approach to Leftist attacks, which is: never apologize, do nothing, and tell them they are insane. Notice the arrogance with which Gersh has proclaimed that the sale is a done deal:

And then how the media spin which allows two people with financial interests in the situation to speak for an entire community:

But Whitefish residents aren’t buying it.

“She is profiting off of the people of the local community, all the while having facilitated Richard’s work spreading hate by letting him live and use her home address for his organization,” local realtor Tanya Gersh said.

…Love Lives Here co-founder Ina Albert [Phone: 406-863-2333; email here or here] echoed Gersh’s sentiment and dismissed Sherry Spencer’s claim that her group was capable of interfering with her business.

“I don’t know what she’s talking about,” Albert said. “We don’t cause financial harm to anybody.”

Both Albert and Gersh have motive to profit from this event as it draws attention to their businesses, Gersh in real estate and Albert as a writer who gives seminars on aging with grace.

They have been agitating against Spencer for some time, which has enabled them to become local mini-celebrities:

Ina Albert, a co-founder of Love Lives Here, said it’s “distressing” to see Trump’s election put Spencer — and his connection to Whitefish — in the national spotlight.

“We fought so hard two years ago (for the anti-discrimination resolution) when he first reared his head,” Albert said.

But, she added, “separatism can only grow if the soil is receptive to prejudice. Truth, love and kindness will always win out if our community can find ways to accept and validate each others’ liberties and freedoms.”

Spencer and his mother are public figures, but also people who have a right — by the same language these “human rights” groups use — to enjoy their property even if they disagree and live a different lifestyle entirely than others. Because they are insane Leftists, the human rights types conveniently make an exception and speed themselves toward profit by using their presumed good public appearance.

Here is how to contact the people who support the people involved in this extortion scam:

A sample email to the Board of Realty Regulation:

Date: Sat, 17 Dec 2016 13:52:34 -0600
Subject: Realtor Tanya Gersh (Whitefish, MT) attempting extortion
From: Brett Stevens


I write to you to complain about the actions of Tanya Gersh, a licensed realtor in Montana.

She is attempting to extort money from one of your citizens by threatening political protests, as described here:

This conduct is unbecoming of someone in a respected and trusted position such as a realtor, and I encourage you to take action to revoke Ms. Gersh’s license.

Thank you for listening.


Brett Stevens

This type of bullying should be resisted no matter what your political stripe is. It reduces politics to profiteering and silences those who might have dissenting opinions, at the hands of wealthy and coddled members of a community at the expense of that community.

Notice that the Leftist always accuses you of what they are doing, as seen in this statement by Gersh:

It’s a new building in Whitefish’s downtown historic district. First owned by Richard Spencer, and now owned by his mother, Sherry. There are vacation rentals on the top floor, businesses lease at street-level.

But Sherry says her son’s political views – – and his detractors – – are forcing her to sell the property. In an email to us, Sherry says, “As painful as this is, I am exploring a potential sale of the building.”

One of those detractors is Tanya Gersh, a prominent member of the community, who told me in an email: “She (Sherry) is profiting off of the people of the local community, all the while having facilitated Richard’s work spreading hate by letting him live and use her home address for his organization.”

Typical of Leftist attacks, this bullying is designed to silence, cow and wreak havoc upon those who dare go out of step with what the herd wants to think. The only solution is to push back, denying their attempts to parasitize, and also call them out on their bad behavior and hold those who support them accountable for enabling bullying under the guise of (obviously insincere) ideology.
