I’m not sure what the plan was at the Daily Stormer.
There was a descent into paranoia that began in late June in which TRS became the center of a vast conspiracy. The reaction to the Andrew Anglin character’s descent into paranoia at first over the summer was to dismiss it as a drug fueled bender or a mental breakdown. Pretty much everyone ignored it as it soared past 15,000 comments from a handful of people on the Stormer BBS.
The downward spiral accelerated this month as Jim Object became the keystone of the TRS conspiracy and a federal agent. An old podcast was dug up from 2012 in which Jayoh was doing a bit in which he dramatically escaped from the feds in the Anarchy Chopper and fled to an anarchist safehouse in the Third World. It was obviously nothing but lolbertarian fantasy fiction, but we were told this literally happened. Soon, everyone at TRS including Mike Enoch became a federal agent. The whole thing struck me as the sort of conspiracy theory that you would find on a crackpot website.
It’s hard to tell what is going on with the Andrew Anglin character because so much of his material is satire or tongue-in-cheek while much of it is no doubt heartfelt. One minute he is calling Jim Object a federal agent. The next minute he wants to beat up and rape the Little Mermaid or is wondering why the Jews aren’t being slaughtered en masse. Perhaps this has all been one big joke and the point the Andrew Anglin character was trying to make was that people in far right circles believe all kinds of dumb, stupid paranoid bullshit? Maybe he wasn’t being ironic though and has gone mad?
In any event, The Drama Stirrer has gone down in the middle of this debate. Auernheimer has explained that Bitmitigate has dumped them for not being worth the hassle of dealing with. The Stirrer aggravated Bitmitigate to the point where they just couldn’t take it anymore. Hopefully, they will be focused on addressing the technical meltdown for the foreseeable future rather than burning bridges with nearly everyone else in this scene and we can have a respite from Infinite Dramaquest 2019.
Note: THIS … but Weev and literally.
