|To be honest, Peinovich looks like a pretty interesting guy.|
It's been a bumpy few days for the Alt-Right with the doxxing of the entirety of TRS and the revelation that Mike Enoch (Peinovich) is married to a Jewess.
Mike has now confirmed this, writing on the TRS forums:
"As I am sure you all know, I was doxxed and 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.
Don’t lie for me. Don’t try to defend me to those attacking me. Don’t jeopardize your own reputation by defending things that you don’t think you can. I could try to explain my whole life for the last ten years to you but what difference at this point would it make. Life isn’t perfect."
He also said something similar to Salon magazine:
“I was involved with that site years ago, writing a few libertarian articles for them and using my PayPal for the exactly zero donations that the site ever got when it was still a libertarian blog,” he wrote.
Peinovich then claimed he had disassociated himself from TRS after it became overtly pro-Nazi: “I cut off ties when they went the direction they are going now, and that was 4 years ago. Honestly I have not thought much about them. As you can see from all public writings I am libertarian. My wife is Jewish. Do you really believe that I am this person?”
The TRS creator then asked Salon to help him deny that he was Enoch: “If you give any fucks at all then you could print that this is all bullshit. We are now being harassed not only by communists but by actual neo nazis.”
That's how things stand right now, and we at Alt-Right News would like to say that, although questions remain—and will probably linger for some time—we think Mike is probably a good goy, maybe a little Jewish and married to a yenta, but a good goy nonetheless, and we are trying to say that as unironically as possible, even though it's definitely hard.
We also like to think that a lot of the TRS schtick about shoahs and gas ovens and whatnot was about challenging the PC taboos of our age, rather than actually advocating a second holocaust. In fact, we can probably say that Mike Enoch's family situation is the best proof possible that it was merely a troll.
