The ‘Daily Shoah’ Crew Teaches Its Listeners About Slavery

Last night, the co-hosts of The Daily Shoah held a special live episode to discuss, among other things, the finer points of chattel slavery — including the claim that white people were its real victims. The usual Daily Shoah “Death Panel” was present — Jesse “Seventh Son” Dunstan, Mike Peinovich, and Alex McNabb — along with special guest Jayoh De La Rey.

Since the episode was in video as opposed to its traditional audio-only format, the faces of the entire group were visible. While Dunstan and Peinovich were unmasked in late December/early January, McNabb and and De La Rey weren’t. For viewers who are unable (or unwilling) to watch The Right Stuff’s paywall content, this was their debut appearance.

McNabb, it seems, has been hiding in plain sight. Using his actual name as opposed to a pseudonym, McNabb had openly discussed his job as an EMT, and wore his uniform during the broadcast. Photos from his Facebook page suggest he works for LifeCare Medical Transports. The fact that McNabb made a public appearance in his work uniform leads me to believe he doesn’t care one way or the other if people know he’s a white supremacist.

De La Rey — who sports a black cowboy hat and attended the D.C. protest of the Kate Steinle verdict the previous night — has also been a guest on TDS and other Right Stuff podcasts. On one TDS episode, De La Rey boasted of having been a mercenary in South Africa and called himself an “unironic exterminationist” for his belief that black people need to be wiped out.

More than halfway through the episode, Dunstan explained his own hypothesis of how white people came to accept slavery. Calling slavery an “African institution” that was pushed by “Jewish merchants,”  Dunstan wondered aloud how white people came to embrace it in the first place. “But how did they come across the concept?” he asked. “Was it when they expanded out to other, less civilized people?”

“So you fast forward,” he continued, “and suddenly these Jewish merchants wanna send this — they see these African tribes all killing each other and taking each other and making them do work, and they’re like, ‘I bet that can work over in the United States where they’re tryin’ to grow cotton and shit.’ So you send some slaves over there.”

Dunstan asserted that these “Jewish merchants” tempted white people into the peculiar institution, and that whites should be credited for starting the abolitionist movement in the first place. “We are not just a technologically and culturally superior people, we are a morally superior people,” he concluded. “The people who imposed the institution of slavery on whites knew that one day it would — it was a time bomb planted in our moral fabric and one day it was going to go off and it is still exploding.”

De La Rey spoke up, asserting that, “Infecting us with niggers is a wedge that becomes a lever.” He opined again that mere secession or segregation would be insufficient because “someone will always use the outgroup as the wedge and then the lever” to tear society apart, presumably rendering extermination the only viable option.

Explaining the difference between abolitionists and “Free Soilers,” De La Rey said, “You had abolitionists who were like, ‘Oh, this is wrong and niggers are people.’ Free Soilers were the people who said, ‘No, we don’t wanna be a slave state because we don’t want niggers here at all.'”

“Okay, that’s cool too,” Dunstan replied. Pointing out that Kansas was a Free Soil state, Peinovich remarked that Kansans were essentially saying “We don’t want blacks.” McNabb chimed in, adding, “Yeah, it had nothing to do with slavery. I don’t want niggers here. I have some experience with these people and I don’t really care for them.”

Mike Peinovich, The Right Stuff’s founder, also revealed that there are some forms of slavery that he finds morally acceptable, citing Rome’s use of slaves as tutors. “The Greek slave, the Greek tutor slave who — he works for what, an aristocratic Roman household? He lives in their beautiful home. He gets fed. He gets clothed. He actually is treated in a privileged manner. And in exchange he has to, what, teach the children of these rich people? What does he care?”
