Bad day for the Fourth Reich: Founder of popular alt-right blog The Right Stuff resigns after foes expose him.
The loosely knit group was shocked to the core Saturday night when one of its most influential leaders — a man known to his online followers as ‘Mike Enoch’ – a virulent racist and anti-Semite — was revealed to be a New York website developer named Mike Peinovich – who has said that his wife is Jewish.
Enoch/Peinovich is the creator of the popular neo-Nazi website The Right Stuff (TRS).For several years he has also co-hosted a podcast called ‘The Daily Shoah’ a deliberately offensive pun on the Hebrew term for the Holocaust.
In his online persona Peinovich routinely cracked jokes about killing Jewish people and forcibly deporting Muslims and people of African descent.
The weekly program had roughly 100,000 regular listeners – many of whom regularly sent in financial donations by PayPal or bought merchandise from the site.
