The now infamous neo-Nazi website Daily Stormer lost its GoDaddy hosting home Monday night after being advised that it had 24 hours to find another host provider. The company has been criticized for months for hosting the Daily Stormer, which clearly violated its terms of service.
Daily Stormer first launched a false flag operation, saying that Anonymous had taken over its website in honor of Heather Heyer, the victim of a domestic terror act on Saturday in Charlottesville, Va. Owner Andrew Anglin, who wrote a disgusting diatribe against Heyer, then moved the site to Google, which immediately announced that it would not host the website.
In the Daily Stormer post, Anglin called Heyer a 'slut', characterizing her as dying in a “road rage incident.” He said she was a “drain on society” and disparaged her appearance. “Most people are glad she is dead,” he wrote.
Outrage followed, led by Twitter user Amy Siskind, who addressed GoDaddy head-on.: "@GoDaddy you host The Daily Stormer. Please retweet if you think this hate should be taken down & banned.” Siskind’s post was shared more than 5,000 times.
Presently, on Tuesday morning, the Daily Stormer is down, and there is no doubt that all of us will hunt down the website if it appears again. Only a pro-Nazi hosting company will host the site, although surely one in Russia will step forward.
