A comprehensive new report, written by a left-leaning journalist for The Atlantic, details some of the bizarre history of Andrew Anglin, the “face” of online trolling for the alt-right. The exposé reveals that Anglin, before becoming online führer of the Daily Stormer, was an anti-racist vegan who once called for the white race to be “bred out” on a radio show. The article further details Anglin’s exploits in hard drugs, sex with underage girls in the Philippines, and even an episode of homosexual experimentation in high school.
Here are some highlights from the piece.
In highschool, Anglin was an outspoken anti-racist vegan:
“When Anglin entered the Linworth Alternative Program, Columbus’s “hippie” high school, as a freshman in 1999, other students found him a quiet, insecure kid who craved attention and wanted to fit in. A declared atheist, he styled his reddish hair in dreadlocks and favored jeans with 50-inch leg openings. He often wore a hoodie with a large fuck racism patch on the back.”
He did hard drugs and became unhinged:
“He also got deeply into drugs, according to half a dozen people who knew him at the time. He did LSD at school or while wandering through the scenic Highbanks Metro Park, north of the city. He took ketamine, ate psychedelic mushrooms, and snorted cocaine on weekends. He chugged Robitussin, and “robo tripped” so much that he damaged his stomach and would vomit into trash cans at school.’
After breaking up with a girl, he allegedly experimented with boys:
“After the breakup, Dan Newman, another friend at the time, remembers Anglin once bashing his head into the walls of his bedroom in such a frenzy that his mother had to call the police. Several classmates told me that Anglin didn’t date again in high school and sometimes tried to kiss other boys, including one black student he especially liked. Whether this behavior was authentic experimentation or just for shock value, it’s notable in light of the extreme homophobia Anglin has since expressed on The Daily Stormer and elsewhere. He has advocated, for instance, throwing gays off buildings, isis-style.”
While he was attempting to live the lifestyle of a cave-man with a primitive Filipino tribe, Anglin allegedly banged a 14-year-old Filipina:
“Edward told me that Anglin acted like he was smarter than everyone else, and in a country where young white men are “treated in a godly way,” Anglin’s ego only grew. He had a complex about being short—he claims to be 5 foot 7, but several people I talked with put his height closer to 5 foot 4. In Davao, however, Anglin hit on every pretty young Filipina he saw and had success with many of them, sometimes taking advantage of their hope that an American husband could be an exit from poverty. Most of these girls were 18 or 19 years old, but Edward says some were younger. He remembers Anglin once picking up a 14-year-old in a bar and bringing her back to the Sampaguita to spend the night.'”
Note: these are not my claims but those of the journalist Luke O’Brien and people who knew Anglin.
Anglin has caused tremendous harm to the alt-right brand by associating it with degenerate, skinhead neo-Nazism. His troll antics have made a joke out of the movement and discredited any mainstream appeal it might have had. Richard Spencer’s embrace of the freakish Anglin-Weev brigade, in addition to his open support for the anti-European Russian satanist Alexander Dugin and his Eurasian ideas, have sunk him further in the gutter.
This shows that the American branch of the alt-right is being led by incompetent crackheads like Anglin who are deliberately driving the movement straight off a cliff. The more respectable leaders, like Spencer, have been bought off by the Dugin Cult to champion our demise in favour of a Eurasian empire.
