Google has pulled its web domain support and in-turn shut down The Daily Stormer just three hours after the neo-Nazi website was rejected by another provider over its response to Charlottesville.
The California-based internet conglomerate said it had taken the decision to cancel their registration for "violating our terms of service." Their announcement comes after the extreme-right news site posted an article ridiculing the woman who was run over and killed at the white nationalist rally in Virginia.
The Daily Stormer was initially taken down on Monday – following a move by registration company GoDaddy to cancel the site's domain name. After a short time, however, it was back up-and-running, with a self-adulating post from its publisher Andrew Anglin saying that he had retaken control of the site.
We informed The Daily Stormer that they have 24 hours to move the domain to another provider, as they have violated our terms of service.— GoDaddy (@GoDaddy) August 14, 2017
He claims the site had been briefly controlled by hackers from the Anonymous movement.
We have no confirmation that "Anonymous" is involved yet. Looks more like a DS stunt. Wonder if they are having issues finding a new host. https://t.co/ikXXRBfC5p— Anonymous (@YourAnonNews) August 14, 2017
She was among a crowd of anti-protestors who were rammed into by a car driven by James Alex Fields Jr, a man with a history of domestic abuse allegations by his own mother. The group was demonstrating against white nationalists who had gathered at a park in Charlottesville to oppose the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E Lee.
Several state officials have now called for the removal of controversial Conferacy monuments, which are known to celebrate KKK leaders involved in the massacre of black soldiers. The site, which has a drop-down section titled "Jewish problems" has also been accused of promoting anti-Semitic views and defaming Jews in thousands of "vile, vomit-inducing posts."
