Alleged FL Neo-Nazi Pleads Guilty To Gun Charges As Supporters Rain Down Racist Slurs In Zoom Hearing

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports:

Internet broadcaster Paul Miller, known for racially charged rants, admitted Tuesday to stockpiling ammunition in his home in Fort Lauderdale. Miller, a New Jersey native with two previous felony convictions, took a plea deal and pleaded guilty to three weapons charges stemming from an FBI raid of his home in March.

Miller was in the process of building a large online audience. At the time of his arrest, his channels on Telegram, a messaging app, had over 40,000 followers. Many signed onto Miller’s court hearing on Zoom on Tuesday. Miller appeared from a jail cell, where he was held pending trial due to a history of threatening behavior.

He became distressed when someone he recognized from the internet appeared on screen and other unknown users spoke anti-Semitic comments and anti-Black slurs. He apologized to his defense attorney, Michael B. Cohen.

According to Wikipedia, Miller went by the name Gypsy Crusader and has been linked to multiple neo-Nazi and far-right groups. He faces up to 30 years in prison and will be sentenced in August.
