UPDATED 8/19/17 – Russia doesn’t want to host the Stormer, either. Twitter won’t show Stormer tweets, and Cloudflare won’t protect it from DDOS attacks.
I’m really enjoying watching the trickling demise of the Daily Stormer. Named after a Nazi propaganda sheet, Der Sturmer, the Storm is over. From its threats of epic doom via “white right” thunder and lightning to today’s sprinkling of evaporating drops, the neo-Nazi, alt-right, Proudboy digital dreadnought has died with a whimper. Republicans at the highest levels of government are scrambling to disassociate themselves from Daily Stormer’s message of racist hate and violence.
And all it took was a riot in Charlottesville, bruises, blood, and broken bones, and the death of a young warrior.
Two days ago, the “unitetheright” rally, organized and promoted online by Daily Stormer as an epic battle between white supremacists and everybody else, a veritable “clash of civilizations”, happened. We have all seen the videos and wept for the tragedy.
GoDaddy , Stormer’s original domain host, cancelled its domain registration on Sunday, following Stormer’s publication of an offensive article about the deceased victim of the car assault in Charlottesville. Reason given was “Violation of Terms of Service”.
Anonymous, the hacker collective, apparently hacked and took over the Stormer website. Andrew Anglin, Stormer’s owner, claimed that he had regained control , and hosted the site on Google. Anonymous hackers themselves said that they had not hacked Stormer, and that it was probably a publicity stunt by Anglin to stir up sympathy against the “Jewish conspiracy” victimizing the poor little Nazi website.
Today, web search behemoth Google also said that it wanted no part of Stormer’s mission and message, that it violated Google’s terms of service, and also declined to host the alt-right site.
Stormer’s staff, including CEO Andrew Anglin, with other “alt-right” and neo-Nazi organizations and provocateurs, promoted and helped to organize the “Unite the Right” rally.
A young woman died and at least 40 people were injured, fighting Nazis in 2017 in the United States of America.
Stormer mocked the dead woman, and called the vehicular assault “road rage”.
GoDaddy dropped Stormer.
Stormer’s Anglin claimed it was hacked by Anonymous, but that he had regained control. Anonymous said it had not hacked the site.
Stormer moved to Google. Google dropped Stormer. Stormer’s YouTube account was also deleted.
Stormer’s email server had been on Zoho, but then Zoho dropped Stormer.
Stormer moved to keep its discussions going on Discord. Discord banned Stormer discussion.
Stormer’s DDS protector, Cloudflare, also dropped the “ironic Nazi (sic) site. Since a controversial website can’t exist without some protection from hacking denial of service attacks, Stormer is now officially dead.
They did pop up, briefly, on a Russian domain, as DailyStormer.ru. But the Russians, also, apparently decided that these idiots were not useful enough — they did not advance the narrative of Glorious Russia and Declining America — and so they were dropped, as well, from the Russian domain.
