A neo-Nazi blogger explained in a post studded with Internet jargon why Reddit is such a fertile ground for recruitment.
The Daily Stormer website – described as “a veritable Drudge Report for Nazi sympathizers and anti-Semites” – urged white supremacists to take part in discussions in specific communities, called “subreddits,” where other users might be receptive to their arguments.
“Reddit has a strong reputation for being a far-left SJW (social justice warriors) hugbox and it’s frequently mentioned in the same breath as Tumblr,” wrote neo-Nazi blogger Michael Slay. “However, many areas of Reddit are much more open to our ideas than you might think.”
The website listed some communities where white supremacists already gather – including “/r/WhiteRights,” “/r/GasTheKikes,” and “/r/CoonTown” – but he said some less obvious groups might yield new recruits to their hateful message.
“First and foremost, the #1 place on Reddit to recruit people to our side is /r/conspiracy,” Slay wrote.
“Yes, I know what you’re thinking,” he continued. “Why bother trying to enlighten a bunch of Alex Jones-reading kosher retards who think that the ‘Illuminati lizard people’ run the world? Well, I’ll tell you why: conspiracy-minded people are the most open to considering the reality, which is that international Jewry, in fact, runs our societies.”
Slay said the subreddit already hosts anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and the site has held a question-and-answer discussion with filmmaker Dennis Wise, director of the pro-Nazi documentary, “Adolf Hitler: The Greatest Story Never Told.”
“(The subreddit) /r/conspiracy is an excellent place to bring mainstream conspiracy-minded, Alex Jones-type people over to our side,” Slay wrote. “All you have to do is post content exposing Jewry for exactly what it is.”
He cautioned against clangingly obvious rhetoric about race wars and killing minorities, and he suggested targeting “Zionists” instead of “Jews.”
Slay said neo-Nazis already dominated the 4chan message board, and he argued that Reddit would be next.
“Once we succeed at making our ideas mainstream on the Internet – thus winning over the hearts and minds of the youth – it’s game over for international Jewry,” Slay wrote. “In the future – when you are living in a Judenfrei world – you can tell your grandchildren how you fought the battle against Jewry on the Internet, waking people up to the Jewish parasite using only your fingertips and your endless amount of information.”
