Neo-Nazi blogger revealed to be married to Jewish woman


The creator of one of America’s most notorious neo-Nazi websites has been unmasked – and he has a Jewish wife.

“Mike Enoch”, the alias by which he was known to his followers, is the founder of The Right Stuff (TRS) a far-right blog, as well as a co-host of “The Daily Shoah”, an antisemitic and racist podcast which has around 100,000 listeners a week.

However, last Saturday night, “Enoch” was revealed to be Mike Peinovich, a New York software developer.  Despite making regular jokes about the Holocaust and killing Jews on his podcast, Peinovich is married to someone Jewish.

The information was revealed after another neo-Nazi group, known as Baphomet, reportedly took offence as result of a radio argument over whether members should even speak to Jews. Baphomet published information about a number of individuals involved with TRS, including Peinovich.

According to Salon magazine, it appears that Peinovich’s wife was fully aware of his involvement, even appearing as an occasional guest on “The Daily Shoah”.

The magazine went on to say that Peinovich had originally denied being “Mike Enoch”, but later admitted it to followers in a private forum on the TRS site,  saying: “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.”

The admission has led to arguments within the neo-Nazi community, with some describing the unmasking of Peinovich as a “Zio propaganda technique” and defending him, while others accusing him of “subverting our movement.”
