New York Times Nazi couple raising money on an alt-right crowdfunding site after being fired from their jobs

The “Nazi sympathizer” couple in New Carlisle, Ohio featured in a Sunday New York Times profile is raising money on the alt-right fundraising site “Goy Fund Me,” Los Angeles Times national correspondent Matt Pearce revealed on Tuesday.

The story, by Times reporter Richard Fausset, was widely criticized for “normalizing” Nazi sympathizers Tony and Maria Hovater.

“Communists, Antifa, and general basement-dwelling ne’er-do-wells set to work immediately, identifying their place of employment and harrassing (sic) their management into terminating them,” the Hovater Support Fund on Goy Fund Me reads. “As many of you are already aware, the New York Times released an article profiling Tony Hovater, the Chief Operations Officer, and a founding member, of the Traditionalist Worker Party.”

The Hovaters are using “Goy Fund Me” (which claims no relationship to “Go Fund Me”) after online financial services companies refused to do business with neo-Nazis and white supremacists in the wake of the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, which resulted in the murder of Heather Heyer, The Verge reported in October.

PayPal, Patreon and GoFundMe all stopped processing financial transactions for white nationalists. So “Goy Fund Me” was launched, using the modern Hebrew and Yiddish word ‘goy’ to refer to funding for non-Jews, by non-Jews.

Now the Hovaters appear to be cashing in on their white nationalist celebrity, using the niche fundraising website.

“While the holiday season is upon us and everyone is most certainly spending the majority of their money on gifts, we would like to ask that you consider donating to the Hovater Support Fund,” the page continues. “As a general movement, we must show solidarity through supporting our own and helping them back to their feet, even in times where it may be an inconvenience to us. Giving is what the spirit of Christmas is all about and we ask that this season, please dig deep and donate what you can to this wonderful newlywed couple.”

Bristow is asking his supporters to donate to the fund.
