Angelo John Gage is an American neo-Nazi, white nationalist, anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist and practitioner of Neurolinguistic programming.[1]

Post-2016, Gage has claimed he is no longer a white nationalist and abandoned his old views. However, the website Right-Wing Watch in 2019 in an article on Gage, has pointed out: "it doesn’t appear his worldview has changed much–if at all. Gage is still online cranking out anti-Semitic content and associating with white nationalists."[2] On his current YouTube channel, Gage has hosted interviews and discussions with anti-Semites and far-right activists, including Kevin MacDonald and Tomislav SunićWikipedia's W.svg.

Background[edit]

Gage is a former marine who has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.[3]

Gage was formerly a chairman for the National Youth Front (NYF), the youth wing of the neo-Nazi American Freedom Party (a.k.a. American Third Position), whose director is Kevin MacDonald; he once appeared on radio with white supremacist, David Duke. The party calls for halting "non-white immigration" into the US and claims to stand up for the "customs and heritage of the European American people". According to Right-Wing Watch:

Throughout his years in the hate movement, Gage served as the chairman of the white nationalist group National Youth Front. He reportedly resigned as chairman before his first child was born and handed control of the organization to Identity Evropa founder Nathan Damigo.

Gage pursued elected office in 2014 in New Jersey as part of the white nationalist American Freedom Party, during which he appeared on the radio program of white supremacist David Duke. Gage also hosted a program on the white nationalist website, The White Voice.

After leaving the American Freedom Party, Gage started creating his own racist videos on YouTube, spreading the "anti-racist is a code word for anti-white" and "diversity is white genocide" mantras as well making videos such as "make whites great again", denying the Holocaust, and criticising what he calls "international-jewry". However in April 2016, Gage deleted all these videos and said his white nationalist strategy has been a total failure:

White Nationalism is a failing strategy because of this (60 years proves this) and we need something MORE effective, which I think would be Ethno-Nationalism… Let these losers talk in circles; that’s all they have been doing for 60 years and that’s all they’ll continue to do. The time has come for REAL people to get serious; standing behind a real populist message where activists won’t be afraid of losing their jobs; one that won’t keep them stuck on a computer talking to – who I now call ‘avatards’ – and other hobbyists that have no strategies at all. We need a REAL strategy that can actually be APPLIED TO THE REAL WORLD. Donald Trump has shown us all just how effective an all-compassing populist message can be, but these internet LARPers rather hide behind avatars pushing their losing message than ever do anything in the real world.[4]

Despite claiming to change his mind on racism, Gage continues to associate with white nationalists and other far-right activists on his Youtube channel and supports their views; for example he still posts the same "white genocide" mantra (just re-worded as "diversity kills") and anti-Semitism on his Twitter profile — so the leopard hasn't changed his spots.

Homophobia[edit]

Gage is known to attack LGBT people on his Twitter. He agues against same-sex marriage claiming it is not natural. He has also claimed that homosexuality is a "sexual perversion" and is a danger to children.[5]
