Analysis / Bias
In review, the Daily Stormer is a neo-nazi, white supremacist hate website. The Daily Stormer frequently promotes Holocaust denial and even advocates exterminating the Jews. The website also features a countdown clock that shows when Whites will be the minority in the USA. When not promoting Antisemitism, they frequently publish propaganda in support of Racism, Islamophobia, Anti-LGBTQ, and advocacy for Men’s rights.
Politically, the Daily Stormer and Andrew Anglin support Donald Trump, stating, “vote for the first time in our lives for the one man who represents our interests.” The Daily Stormer has even been criticized by white nationalist websites such as Stormfront and Counter-Currents that have taken issue with what they see as lowbrow coverage.
Overall, we rate the Daily Stormer Questionable based on Extreme Right Bias, promotion of propaganda and conspiracies, as well as simply being a vile hate group. This source is not worthy of a click. (D. Van Zandt 2/8/2017) Update (12/12/2021)
