  1. I guess, if the other kids don't want to play with you, you just pick up your ball and go home.

    President Trump’s relationship with the American business community suffered a major setback on Wednesday as the president was forced to shut down his major business advisory councils after corporate leaders repudiated his comments on the violence in Charlottesville this weekend.

    Trump announced the disbanding of the two councils — the Strategy & Policy Forum and the Manufacturing Council, which hosted many of the top corporate leaders in America — amid a growing uproar by chief executives furious over Trump's decision to equate the actions of white supremacists and protesters in remarks Tuesday at Trump Tower.

    1. Not only have Go Daddy and Google dropped the Nazis, so has Twitter:

      UPDATE: Twitter latest to send white-supremacist Daily Stormer site packing

      2:40 PM ET 8/16/17 | MarketWatch

      The Twitter account of the white-supremacist website the Daily Stormer is no longer on Twitter Inc. (TWTR) after the social-media platform apparently suspended it for violating its policies. Twitter said it is not able to comment on individual accounts, but the account is listed as suspended on the platform. "The Twitter Rules prohibit violent threats, harassment, hateful conduct, and multiple account abuse, and we will take action on accounts violating those policies," a Twitter spokesperson said in response to a MarketWatch inquiry on the account. The suspension comes after the site was banned from the domain-registry company GoDaddy (GDDY) and Alphabet Inc.'s Google (GOOGL)(GOOGL), which reportedly led the site to re-register under a Russian domain name. Facebook Inc. (FB) took down an event page related to the white-supremacy march in Charlottesville, Va.,. and also said it was removing links related to a Daily Stormer post that demeaned Heather Heyer, a counterprotester who was killed in Charlottesville, according to the Guardian.

      So if the Russians are now hosting the Nazis, do they have a Twitter equivalent too?

      1. I wrote a diary about the Stormer's demise on here and on kos. There are new twists every day – the latest is that the Russians have apparently also dropped DailyStormer.ru – that address now returns "server not found".

        I suppose Anglin's Angels were not useful enough idiots for the Russians to bother with. 

        Right now, Anglin's particular kind of hate speech is only available through Tor, on the "dark web", and only for people willing to use Tor browser and type in their url. But even there, it might not exist, because Cloudflare, the company which protects websites from malicious directed – denial-of-service attacks, has also dropped the Stormer as a client.

        Not only that, but the Stormer, KKK Whizz David Duke and other organizers of the "unitetheright" rally in Charlottesville are the targets of a $3 million civil lawsuit from two people injured in the vehicular assault. Nice.
