Allegedly cash-strapped Daily Stormer declares: “We’re Laying Off Staff Because You Didn’t Send Money”

Will this be the Daily Stormer’s downfall?

By David Futrelle

You hate to see it. Nazi trash site The Daily Stormer is apparently running out of money. In a morose but petulant post today, head Stormer Andrew Anglin threatened to lay off his staff and cut back on his coverage of such vital issues as Jews, race war, women not deserving rights, and Jews unless his readers coughed up more bucks bitcoins than they’ve donated so far.

“I’ve given 30-day notices to most of the staff,” Anglin began,

because even after I told you people that the site lost $50,000 last year, fewer than 60 of you decided to send money, for a total of less than $5,000. The costs for January were more than $10,000.

Generally speaking, it’s not a good sign when you refer to your readers and potential donors as “you people.”

Anglin then threatened to downsize drastically to just him:

But hey, if people don’t want to send money, we’ll do things differently. We’re going to downsize, and basically, I’ll be the only writer. There will obviously be many fewer articles, but that’s just the deal.

How will the internet survive this terrible loss?

Anglin warned that even the RACE WAR section of the site could end up in the dumpster of history. And how can you have a race war without a race war section?

“It is impossible to communicate how depressing this is for me personally,” Anglin continues.

I thought that we were promoting an agenda here that people believed in, but it seems that virtually all of you do not believe in this enough to send $5.

SOMETIMES I DOUBT YOUR COMMITMENT TO SPARKLE MOTION RACE WAR NOW

It certainly does not give me hope for the future. This is the only large site promoting this agenda, telling the truth about the Jews, and attempting to save white people. And we’re now shrinking an already tiny staff because the overwhelming majority of the readership apparently doesn’t give a shit.

Where is the love for his hate site?

Honestly, if I didn’t have personal reasons for doing this, I would just give up and go make a lot more money doing something else.

Really? Who’s going to hire you, dude? Is there really a big demand for petulant Nazis who lose multi-million dollar lawsuits out there?

You all know what I’ve been through to run this site. And that is what it is. I am an adult and made these decisions and I’ll deal with the consequences. But the lack of support certainly makes me question how much more I should give.

How about none, give none.

For the time being, I will keep the site running. But considering the lack of support, I can’t promise that I’ll do it indefinitely. I might prefer to write books, or do something else. I have to think about my own personal future, and seeing as how little this site means to the readers, it’s hard to justify putting this much energy into it.

Why not take that energy and learn how to play the world’s tiniest violin, because nobody else is going to play it for you.

I guess we’ll just have to see if Anglin yelling “you ungrateful wretches” at a bunch of angry Nazis is an effective way to get them to cough up more money for his hate site.

Other good news:

Dalrock, the Manosphere’s ‘Christian’ blogger, won’t be posting new articles on his blog any more. He plans to keep the old stuff up, however.

Rush Limbaugh has announced he has stage 4 lung cancer.

My schadenfreuden with Rush Limbaugh will be maximal if he have to stop his media appearence entirely, get saved by an atheist doctor, and see one of his house destroyed by the changing climate.

That being said, I hope mostly that he will shut up and not suffer too much, whether he survive or not.

We haven’t talked about Dalrock here in a while, so I hadn’t thought about him much. I wonder whether he’s shuttering his doors for the same reason as TDS’s downsizing.

My favorite response to Rush and #PrayForRush was one astute Twitter user I ran across yesterday (can’t find a link) who said:

Isn’t everyone a bit late to #PrayForRush? Neil Peart passed several weeks ago.

In any case, we are in a no Rush situation.

Ten years or so ago, when I had more spring in my step, I would have supposed that Anglin’s current distresses were due to the fact that people were getting tired of his crap.

But that was then. Now my feet are starting to drag, and I’m afraid that the reason he’s finding it hard to make a go of things these days is not because people are getting sick of his message but because he now has competition from the mainstream.

The more things change, and so forth. Darn it.

Well, it’s not like he’s built up tolerance to painkillers due to addicOH WAIT.

Ohlmann, I especially agree with you on this:

“That being said, I hope mostly that he will shut up and not suffer too much, whether he survive or not.”

Lung cancer is a terrible way to die. I don’t wish it on anyone. Rush is a terrible person. On some level, I feel bad for feeling bad. It’s like guilt-ception.

Welp. At least that’s a tiny bit of good news, even given the possibility of caveats.

And no, even if it makes me a horrible person, you’re not going to find me feeling anything toward Rash Limburger other than schadenfreude for his woes. He’s one of the architects of the rise of the current right-wing wave and has been since at least the Reagan administration. He can go to one of Dante’ nine circles of hell (or a reasonable facsimile) for all I care. Not forever though because finite evil does not warrant infinite punishment (one of my main problems with monotheism, theologically speaking).

I wonder about commenters not even agreeing with anything they’re saying but still adding fuel to their fire with comments saying that they do just for kicks.

I’d hope not. “Doing things ironically is the gateway drug to doing things for real” is one of few things I hope people actually learn from 4chan.

Anglin is trying very hard to appeal to his fans empathy. Unfortunately they don’t have any or they wouldn’t be fans of him.
