Over 1.3 Million View Payday’s Video of Yinzers Running Nazis Out of Pittsburgh

Richard Spencer deputy Greg Conte being run out of an anti-war rally in Pittsburgh.

Our video of yinzers chasing Richard Spencer’s long-time nazi deputy Greg Conte has received more than 1.3 million views on twitter. 

We’ve received notes of solidarity in languages from people all over the world. Indeed, white nationalists, who opposed the invasion of Iran, are attempting to co-opt the anti-war movement; labeling it as a zionist project of secret Jewish elite. 

Pittsburgh City Paper’s Ryan Deto followed up on Payday’s work identifying Conte and speculating about what his presence in Pittsburgh may mean for white nationalists. (You can read more here). 

We’ve created a deep conversation here in Western Pennsylvania about the rise of neo-nazis here locally.
