GoDaddy expels neo-Nazi site over article on Charlottesville victim
16 August, 2017, 06:30
Civil rights activist Heather Heyer, 32, was killed on Saturday when James Fields, a 20-year-old man from OH, plowed his vehicle into a group of people marching peacefully through downtown Charlottesville against a white supremacist rally in the town.
Another web-hosting service, GoDaddy, made the same move Sunday evening, after Daily Stormer's founder, Andrew Anglin, wrote a screed against Heather Heyer, the 32-year-old victim killed when an alt-right supporter drove his auto at a high speed into a crowd Saturday.
The site, which openly promoted itself as a low-brow publication for neo-Nazis, wrote often about "the Jewish problem" and "the race war".
The action taken by GoDaddy is nothing short of laudable, but it must be noted that activists, which include the Southern Poverty Law Center, started calling on the domain provider to cease providing the domain for Daily Stormer a number of months ago.
The Daily Stormer had faced fresh scrutiny and anger after publishing an article describing Charlotteville victim Heather Heyer as a "fat, childless slut".
However, an official AnonymousTwitter account, Your Anon News, said that there's no confirmation that a member is responsible, and suggested that the post could be a "stunt".
Thomson ReutersGoogle has canceled the domain registration for The Daily Stormer, a company spokesperson confirmed Monday. "This site is now under the control of Anonymous", the post reads. Andrew Auernheimer, a contributor of the Daily Stormer, said the hacking story was a "prank", according tothe Washington Post. What appears more likely is that the post is an attempt to deflect from the fact that GoDaddy is dropping the Daily Stormer.
The Daily Stormer takes its name from Der Stürmer, a Nazi tabloid.
