The Nazi hate site, the Daily Stormer, suddenly became the house guest nobody wanted. Kicked out of their roost at “Go Daddy,” they found temporary refuge at Google which was soon overwhelmed by the stench and ordered their eviction. With nowhere else to go, it seemed as if the foul pestilence of Daily Stormer found a new home at last.
Seemingly, the refuge was short-lived. One can only suppose there are things that even Putin finds offensive.
Business Insider reports:
A white supremacist website that was banned by both of its US-based web hosts earlier this week briefly found a new home for its server on Wednesday in Russia.
The Daily Stormer was dropped by both GoDaddy and Google after its founder, white supremacist Andrew Anglin, published an article attacking the 32-year-old counterprotester who was run over by an alleged neo-Nazi in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday.
Anglin wrote on Wednesday that his site was shut down “by the greasy Jews” who said that he had incited terrorism by “making fun of a fat skank who had been run over by a car.”
So happy was Anglin with his new Russian digs, he posted an image declaring “True Friendship” with the Russian dictator.
Apparently the feeling was not mutual.
By early Wednesday afternoon, however, the site appeared to have been taken down. It is unclear whether Russian authorities removed it or if Cloudflare, the site’s domain host, dropped it entirely.
Anglin loves him some Putin, though.
Anglin has long espoused views sympathetic to the Kremlin, including support for pro-Russia Ukrainian separatists. The site’s chief technology officer, Andrew Auernheimer — a blackhat hacker known as “weev” — currently lives in Ukraine and has called on its pro-western, anti-Putin president, Petro Poroshenko, to step down.
But white supremacists’ draw to Putin’s Russia, and vice versa, is neither new nor unique to Anglin.
Maybe he could establish his perfect white society there and get out of the United States.
