GoDaddy Drops Hate Site Daily Stormer After Vile Post About Charlottesville Victim

GoDaddy Drops Hate Site Daily Stormer After Vile Post About Charlottesville Victim

The Daily Stormer

GoDaddy dropped the site over a deeply misogynistic story about the woman who died in Charlottesville.

White supremacist James Fields Jr., emboldened by the hatred at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Va., plowed his car into a crowd of peaceful counterprotesters, injuring nearly 20 people and killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer. The headline for the story the neo-Nazi site The Daily Stormer wrote about her death was a disgusting piece of misogynist bile. Now, GoDaddy, the service that has hosted The Daily Stormer, is dropping the site, giving it 24 hours to move the domain to another server before it's pulled down, according to CNN.

GoDaddy tweeted its intentions Sunday night after women's rights advocate Amy Siskind tweeted at the domain host asking it to take down The Daily Stormer based on its hate-filled content and asking followers to retweet if they agreed the site should be removed.

"@GoDaddy you host The Daily Stormer -- they posted this on their site. Please retweet if you think this hate should be taken down & banned," Siskind wrote.

Her message was retweeted more than 6,500 times and GoDaddy announced it would remove The Daily Stormer for violating its terms of service.

In its piece about white supremacist Fields murdering Heyer in cold blood, The Daily Stormer, which bills itself as "the world's most genocidal Republican website," ran a story calling her "fat," "useless," and a "slut." [Editor's note: The Advocate will not link to The Daily Stormer.]

"Despite feigned outrage by the media, most people are glad she is dead, as she is the definition of uselessness," the story read. "A 32-year-old woman without children is a burden on society and has no value."

Daily Stormer founder Andrew Anglin, who writes much of the site's sick and erroneous content, and who is an avid supporter of Donald Trump, according to CNN, has posted hate speech about people of color, women, LGBT people, Muslims, Jewish people, immigrants, and essentially anyone who doesn't look like him or fall in line with his fascist belief system.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups, wrote of The Daily Stormer that it "is dedicated to spreading anti-Semitism, neo-Nazism, and white nationalism, primarily through guttural hyperbole and epithet-laden stories about topics like alleged Jewish world control and black-on-white crime."
