Greg Anglin helped keep the Daily Stormer on its feet for years.
The Daily Stormer, the most notorious neo-Nazi website still in operation, is the brainchild of Andrew Anglin. But as the Los Angeles Times reports, Anglin has had a little bit of help. From his dad, Greg Anglin, a retired therapist who lives in Ohio.
The whereabouts of his son are unknown, and his father thinks he’s in Russia or Thailand. But the younger Anglin’s company is registered in the U.S., and that’s where all of its mail goes.
Donations, letters from the I.R.S., legal documents—all of it goes to Greg Anglin in Worthington, Ohio.
Andrew Anglin even set up the website using his father’s credit card, back in 2013.
“I was sitting in my living room of my condo with my son, and he told me that he was going to start another website,” the elder Anglin said in a deposition in October. The website is currently the subject of multiple lawsuits.
“And I said, OK. And he asked me if he could use my credit card to register the name. And I asked how much it was, and it wasn’t very much money, so I said fine.”
While Greg Anglin has ultimately taken steps to distance himself from his son and his horrific views, he was still instrumental in keeping the Daily Stormer on its feet, according to the Times.
Greg Anglin helped file papers of incorporation and made sure donations to the site were deposited, even if his son wasn’t around, according to court documents.
After the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. in 2017, donations to the Daily Stormer began to spike—in total, Anglin and his website received between $100,000 and $125,000 over the past five years. Until December of 2017, Greg Anglin deposited donations for his son’s website.
Now, Greg Anglin says, all mail that comes for his son or the Daily Stormer goes into a plastic tub.
During a deposition for a defamation lawsuit brought on by the Muslim comedian Dean Obeidallah, Greg Anglin said he doesn’t open mail addressed to his son or his son’s company and doesn’t forward it anywhere, either.
