Andrew Anglin is making headlines across the world. He is a person who, as the founder of the Daily Stormer, an alt-right website is one person who has been unabashedly trying to spread hatred and extremism in the US.
While the world was condemning the alt-right rally and the consequent violence at Charlottesville, Virginia, that culminated in the death of a 32-year old woman and injuries to around 20 people, there was one person condemning the victim and not the terrorist.
It is simply surprising that how a person, in this part of the world, can use derogatory words about the woman who was killed by a xenophobic 20-year old James Alex Field Jr. But apparently we don’t need to go very far in trying to find out one person doing this.
Andrew Anglin, not just praised the white supremacists, but also condemned Heather Heyer, spewing venom against the innocent woman who lost her life, calling her a “slut” and “fat.” The 32-year old woman was killed when James Alex Field Jr. plowed his car into a crowd, killing Heyer and injuring 19 more.
The website has apparently millions of monthly visitors who come here in search of contents that try to perpetuate hate and spew venom against people who are opposed to their ideologies of hate. The website has international ranking of around 11000 and US ranking of 4500.
The site has new Nazi content for American readers. The website was launched some four years ago in mid 2013. The site is known for its use of Internet memes, which have been likened to the imageboard 4chan and cited as attractions for a younger and more ideologically diverse audience. While some white nationalist authors have praised The Daily Stormer’s reach, others have taken issue with its content and tone, accusing Anglin of being an agent provocateur, used to discredit true white nationalism.
There is no denying the fact that the Daily Stormer orchestrates what it calls the “Troll Army”, which is involved in Internet trolling of figures with whom Anglin disagrees politically. It has also distributed propaganda. On August 13 2017, the website was informed by its hosting company GoDaddy that it had violated the terms of service when Anglin published an article smearing Heather Heyer, who was killed at the 2017 Unite the Right rally. Anglin was given 24 hours to locate new hosting for the site.
Anglin claims that its website has been hacked by hackers. But the group that is being accused of hacking has said that it has not done so and that it may be a plot to seek sympathy and support. “We have no confirmation that ‘Anonymous’ is involved yet. Looks more like a DS stunt. Wonder if they are having issues finding a new host,” Your Anon News wrote. “We find claim that it took a ‘UNITED FORCE OF ELITE HACKERS’ to hack a CMS run by amateurs incredibly amusing.”
When President Donald Trump didn’t condemn white supremacists for the violence and the death, the Daily Stormer heaped praise on Trump. “We condemn in the strongest possible terms, this display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides. On many sides…It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump. Not Barack Obama. It’s been going on for a long, long time” Trump had said
This made Anglin quite happy. “There was virtually no counter-signaling of us at all. He said he loves us all…Also refused to answer a question about White Nationalists supporting him. No condemnation at all. When asked to condemn, he just walked out of the room. Really, really good. God bless him” said Daily Stormer.
Where Anglin lives is a tough question to answer. He has kept information about him very private. A report says that in the year 2015, he spoke to the Los Angeles Times, but didn’t disclose the information as to from where he was calling. There was a report in CNN earlier this year in which he said he lived in Lagos, Nigeria. Sometimes ago, in an interview he had said that he was born in Ohio. Some reports claim that he is in Germany, while some believe he lives in Russia.
