Will Daily Stormer Be Forced Offline After Mocking Charlottesville Victim?
The neo-Nazi Daily Stormer web site has been bounced from the internet after it mocked the victim of the Charlottesville white power rally.
The domain hosting company GoDaddy pulls its services from the publication, citing violations of its terms of service.
The suspension of service was spurred by the Daily Stormer’s attack on Heather Heyer, who died on Saturday after a car rammed into anti-racist counter-protesters in Charlottesville.
The site’s editor Andrew Anglin mocked the deceased as a “fat, childless slut” and made fun of her for having failed to avoid motorist James Fields, who has been charged with second-degree murder.
Anglin has faced difficulties in running his site, with normal vendors like PayPal refusing to provide him with services. He was a major booster of the “United Rally” in Charlottesville, which was organized to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee.
