Substack Nazi Update: Even more Nazis
Update to our analysis from January 2024
Last month, we wrote an analysis of Substack’s Nazi problem. We found a disturbing number of publications that used Nazi symbols, terms or slogans, that explicitly defended, promoted, or celebrated Nazism, Adolf Hitler or the Holocaust, white supremacists or neo-Nazis, or that promoted white supremacy, white nationalism, or antisemitism on the platform. Despite Substack’s claims, many of these publications were monetized. Today, we’re publishing our update on this analysis following Substack’s removal of some Nazi publications.
If you haven’t read our initial analysis, you should go back and read it before continuing with this article, because it will explain our methodology and definitions.
