Earlier this year, Dalton Clodfelter, a radical right-wing bigot, Christian nationalist, and fascist who openly dreams of imposing fundamentalist Christianity on the United States and censoring any opposition, was given a nightly show on the network run by far-right conspiracy theorist Stew Peters.
Peters—who has close ties to various far-right political candidates and has used his program to interview several elected officials, GOP candidates, and former members of the Trump administration—has made his network into a haven for white nationalists, racists, and Christian nationalist bigots. Clodfelter fit right in and has consistently used his program to promote white nationalism, anti-LBGTQ bigotry, and outright fascism.
During his Saturday livestream, Clodfelter heaped praise on Anglin and his website.
“The right wing is all about hierarchy,” Clodfelter said. “Right-wing authoritarianism is all about hierarchy. And I view [Andrew] Anglin as being well above the hierarchy than myself. So even if I have a different opinion than Anglin, I know that what he’s done and what he will continue to do will be extremely beneficial to the right wing over all.”
“The Daily Stormer gets millions of views a month,” Clodfelter continued. “I am an active reader. I read it every fucking day. For my show on the Stew Peters Network, if you guys didn’t know, that’s where I get all of my sources. That’s where I get all of my news. Everything that they report on, that day, I pick three things that they report on and I talk about it on the show.”
