A Texas lawyer recently suspended from Twitter for threatening to kill a "f**king n****r" as well as an entire family is suing an anti-fascist journalist for a post referring to him and fellow members of a far-right group as neo-Nazis.

Attorney Jason Lee Van Dyke, who represents a far-right group with connections to white supremacy called the "Proud Boys," filed a libel suit against journalist Gerry Bello in October.

Bello had called several of Van Dyke's peers neo-Nazis, and claimed they dropped swastika-laden fliers in Ohio residents' mailboxes in an article on hyperlocal news site The Mockingbird.
