The Right Stuff (TRS) is an Neo-nazi/neoreactionary blog that concentrates on promoting racialism and white supremacy.

It reads like satire. It's not.


The "About Us" page is boring and ideological. You really only need three parts:[1]

Welcome to, home to the edgiest podcast of the current year, The Daily Shoah.

Holocaust jokes = haha edgy 👌

Severely rustling jimmies among the childish and regressive left-wing.

owning the libs = haha edgy 👌

Also we're white and we're not sorry.

being white = haha edgy 👌


On January 10, 2017, Mike Enoch, the founder of TRS and the person behind The Daily Shoah podcast, was doxed by fellow neo-Nazis as a techie named Michael Peinovich.[2][3][4][5] Peinovich was revealed to have a Jewish wife[2][5] and is reportedly the creator of the (((triple parentheses))) symbol used by anti-semites to identify Jews on the web.[4][6]

Enoch/Peinovich reportedly posted the following on a password-protected part of TRS:[5]

As I am sure you all know, I was doxxed and an ill advised attempt to fool the media about my identity led me to not talk to you people and to try to simply ride it out by being silent. This was irresponsible and a disservice to all of you. Yes my wife is who they say she is, I won’t even bother denying it, I won’t bother making excuses. If this makes you want to leave the movement, or to have nothing to do with TRS, then I understand. Don’t lie for me. Don’t try to defend me to those attacking me. Don’t jeopardize your own reputation by defending things that you don’t think you can. I could try to explain my whole life for the last ten years to you but what difference at this point would it make. Life isn't perfect.

Despite being a universal public embarrassment, Enoch was a scheduled speaker at the 2017 Unite the Right rally.[7]

Literal genocide advocacy[edit]

TRS briefly contained the delightful December 2016 article "Genocide: The Inescapable Conclusion". It includes some lovely quotes, such as linking the term "genocide" to Jewish propaganda:[8][9]

Genocide is just a word invented by a Jew to demonize the Nazis. As a Dixian-American, I feel no particular link to the Nazis, swastikas, Roman salutes, etc. I'm really pretty ambivalent on those things. Whatever. Jean-Marie Le Pen hit the nail on the head when he called the Jew/Gypsy genocide a detail of history. Ethnic cleansing is a universal part of world history. Nations have always had intermittent wars, wherein they killed their enemies. So what? The common pejorative use of the word genocide as something unthinkable is ignorance gone to seed as it elevates losing for your people as somehow morally superior to winning for your people.

Claiming that genocide is inevitable and good:[8][9]

While we may sometimes be able to strike up treaties and mutually beneficial trade agreements, or the exchange of scholarly research, or a mutualistic white supremacy such as slavery, we must realize that in the big picture human races are indeed biological competitors, that human evolution is a giant tournament with immutable rules that we cannot cancel and in which elimination means racial extinction rather than just failure to win a trophy. There have always been and always will be eliminations. The only thing we have to decide is whether we want our race to continue to the next round at the expense of others or for other races to continue to the next round at the expense of our own. While it is possible some remnant populations may be retained for cheap labor or medical research, the pro-genocide stance is an inescapable conclusion on at least three different grounds:

1. competition for resources
2. disease control
2.1 reservoir for existing diseases
2.2 emerging diseases and antibiotic resistance
2.3 engineered diseases (biological warfare)

3. environmental pollution

Asserting that disease prevention is best achieved through genocide of regional populations:[8][9]

The brown hordes of the world are a reservoir for diseases that we could easily eradicate if we were only willing to eradicate the host population. Rotary club has long worked toward the vision of A Polio Free World, and could have achieved it a long time ago if we would only eliminate the native population of Afghanistan and Pakistan along with some other problem areas. Rotary claims that polio vaccines can be as cheap as $0.60 USD each, but of course these children (that we also pay to feed and vaccinate for other diseases) grow up to bear more children who will also need to be vaccinated and fed. Meanwhile, the going rate for AK-47 ammo is less than $0.30 USD, can be administered at any age, and actually breaks the cycle.

Preferring "active" genocide perpetrated by whites to "passive" genocide:[8][9]

Genocide necessarily involves either suppression of fertility or active or passive killing, or some combination of methods. Passive killing might include the refusal to supply aid such as food or medical care, preferring to just let Nature run her course, or refusal to come to the rescue when brown tribes genocide each other. The passive method would cause greater suffering and would not finish the job, as there will always be a remnant population to rebound in time. Clearly, an active genocide using white man methods would be more humane than passively letting Nature or savage tribes to do a much sloppier and less complete job. In the same way that animal lovers cannot adopt and care for every stray, but must accept that many be euthanized or sterilized, so it must be with the lower races of humanity.

Wholeheartedly supporting genocide for the purposes of white land grabs:[8][9]

The Bright side: Extermination of the brown hordes in their homelands could give vast new territories to us. They are ours for the taking. Perhaps some readers wish they could have taken part in the US Homestead acts. Those days do not have to be gone forever. We could gain vast territories and give them away to settlers much like in the old days. We could even form new white countries, and settle much more territory than the entire continental US put together. In Africa, India, and Latin America 100 or even 1,000 acre tracts could be given away to young homesteaders. Or perhaps our governments could just auction parcels of land or mineral rights instead of collecting taxes. It is up to us white men to agree on the justness of our cause, how the spoils will be divided among us, and to go out and conquer and settle like only white men can.

TRS deleted the article,[10] presumably to avoid being labelled violent racists. Should you believe this TRS article to be a joke or satire, we advise you to read the comments.[8][9]

Turns out we were right. After leaving the page offline for three days (!),[10] TRS put the page back up, but with this dinky (and new) little disclaimer:[11][12]

Note: This article is meant to provoke thought and discussion and should be used for informational and educational purposes only. TRS does not support church shootings or any sort of violent or illegal activity of any kind. Support your local Police.

The same man who praises the cheap cost of a bullet, describes the world's 6.8 billion nonwhites as a "reservoir for diseases", and advocates "active killing" is worried about unnecessary violence and the police being harmed in the process. Right.
