Deseret Nationalist in the News

Last month, a #DezNatter produced a clip from “Inglourious Basterds,” in which a Nazi is brutally beaten, with Dehlin’s name photo-edited onto the German soldier.

Dehlin says he reported the retweeted clip to police and the FBI.

One of #DezNat’s most sustained online assaults against an individual has been aimed at Brigham Young University undergrad Calvin Burke, who self-identifies as gay and as an LGBTQ ally. He has a lively Twitter account and more than 10,000 followers.

DezNat users routinely insult him, sometimes with crude sexual language, and threaten violence. One man talked about wishing to beat him up. They have doxxed him over and over, repeatedly trying to get him fired from his job at the school’s Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship. Last year, Bellum offered a “hypothetical” bounty of $1,000 for any information leading to Burke’s expulsion from BYU.
I am surprised BYU put up with the word "inglorious". Maybe the patina of the sponsor FAIRMormon let's then get away with such hijinx.
