A self-proclaimed gay, Jewish white supremacist was in court last night ... facing charges that he has terrorized Anderson Cooper, threatening to "f**k you up."

40-year-old Alex Hausner has allegedly stalked Cooper for 5 years ... but things escalated last month when he showed up at the CNN star's home, trying to kick down the front door of the converted firehouse and screaming, "I swear to f**king God, don't insult me.  I'm going to f**k you up."

According to the New York Post, Hausner has made numerous threatening phone calls and attempted to get face-to-face encounters with A.C. for years.  The Post says Hausner also targeted Anderson's boyfriend, calling him a "thug" and a "mongrel."

Hausner -- a psychiatric patient -- faces felony menacing charges and misdemeanor harassment charges.  He's being held on $75K bail.

I guess it is easier to spurn a woman than a gay man. spurn a woman and she may smack you, claw your eyes out, blackmail you, make your life miserable, but spurn a gay man and he may show up at your door, kick it down, come inside, and F you up. whether you like it that way or not.

I would've thought an Anderson Cooper stalker would be more like Hector in "Blades of Glory". Turns out he's more like the Klan's accountant.

Firstly, what kind of mental problems. Does he know something juicy we don't about Cooper and they just threw in the mental problems crap to create a bias against Hauser. Cooper is ex CIA is he not? If Hauser were a real threat why not hold him for further psychiatric evaluation? Would that not be prudent? Does this sound like a spurned lover? Cooper is white and queer. Is he a white supremacist too? If he has been stalked by the same guy for 5 years, why hasn't he been arrested before? Jealous lover.

Well, if he had made his way into his home would he have shot to kill in thinking his life was in danger or since he has been stalked for five years, could he have actually run out of the house and just hope someone with a gun did come and stop the maniac. Betting Anderson is thinking about getting a body guard or a gun permit, who wouldn't?

Boy, talk about self-loathing...the guy stalking Anderson is gay...Jewish...AND a white supremacist? Not to mention a mental patient?

The guy needs help in the worst way. I'm not going to rag on the guy for that.

Hopefully, this ends well for all concerned-Anderson included.
