Gab’s Hosting Provider Moves to Shut Down the Alt-Right Social Network
Gab’s Hosting Provider Moves to Shut Down the Alt-Right Social Network

In the wake of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, the social media network Gab—where suspected attacker Robert Bowers posted anti-Semitic conspiracy theories—announced that its new hosting provider had pulled its services. Late Saturday night, hours after Paypal had kicked Gab off its own platform, Gab’s Twitter account announced that hosting provider Joyent was also dropping the network over a breach of terms of service. “Gab will likely be down for weeks because of this. Working on solutions,” one tweet said. The network catered to right-wing extremists and in the days leading up to the attack, Bowers posted neo-Nazi conspiracies on Gab. Just before the shooting, he sent a final, ominous post to the site: “Screw your optics, I’m going in.” In a statement on Saturday, Gab condemned “all acts of terrorism and violence” and said it had removed Bowers’ account and was cooperating with authorities. At the same time, it celebrated its newfound infamy, posting that it had received a million hits per hour after the attack. After tweeting the news about Joyent, Gab vowed, "Big tech cannot stop us. The mainstream media cannot stop us."​

Post facts NOT YOUR DEMODOUCHE LIES
In an exclusive interview with Infowars, Gab founder Andrew Torba lashed out at the media’s attempt to blame him and the free speech platform he created for yesterday’s horrific Synagogue shooting.

A statement released by Gab emphasised the fact that individuals aren to blame for atrocities, not social media platforms on which they post.

“We refuse to be defined by the media’s narratives about Gab and our community. Gab’s mission is very simple: to defend free expression and individual liberty online for all people. Social media often brings out the best and the worst of humanity. From live streamed murders on Facebook, to threats of violence by bombing suspect Cesar Sayoc Jr. that went unaddressed by Twitter, and more. Criminals and criminal behavior exist on every social media platform.”
