Social network Gab to lose hosting after getting blamed for synagogue shooting

Via RT


Social media platform Gab, where the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter had a page, is about to lose its hosting provider. Gab is being widely accused of enabling the shooting.

Joyent, Gab’s hosting provider, sent it a warning message that because of an unspecified “breach of the Joyent Terms of Service,” it will be pulling the plug on Gab on Monday morning. Earlier, PayPal cut off contact with the social network, after an avalanche of media reports pointed out that Michael Bowers, who killed 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday, had a page there.

Bowers’ final post reportedly accused a Jewish refugee protection NGO of bringing “invaders” into the US, and ended in an ominous “I’m going in.”

Upon learning of his identity, Gab says it took down Bowers’ page, but not before backing it up and sending it to the FBI.

In the hours following the shooting, Gab was hit by a wall of mainstream media coverage with headlines invariably linking the site’s “alt-right” leanings to the murders committed by Bowers, implying that Gab had enabled the crime, or was even complicit.

A snowball of similar condemnation from left-leaning Twitter users was not far behind. In many cases, Gab was openly called a “Nazi” platform.

Bowers also had accounts on Facebook and Twitter – yet those companies don’t appear to be facing any backlash, Gab and its defenders point out.

Likewise, the recently arrested mail bomber Cesar Sayoc was allowed to spout threats on Twitter for two years before being suspended after he was detained.

Gab has become a haven for users who have been either banned from more mainstream social media, or those simply unhappy with their content-control rules. Gab’s overarching message is that all speech is free speech and has to be protected under the First Amendment. Thus, the site makes a point of allowing anybody to say anything, insofar as possible. It still has rules, as it points out in its post-shooting statement, however, and “disavows and condemns all acts of terrorism and violence.”

Soon after Joyent, Payment processing platform Stripe became the next to disavow Gab. In its letter to the besieged network, it accused Gab of not doing enough to ensure its rules were being observed. It disabled the social network’s account until Stripe’s own investigation into the issue is concluded, “likely within one week.”

Let them silence all platforms. The message they’ll get in reply will be so deafening that silence will be all they hear for eternity. Amazing how scared of reality people can be that they’d stick their a*se so far out for a f*cking, it beggers belief.

It’s called “virtue signaling” and is done out of fear of being tarred by not being sufficiently condemnatory of some social faux pas. And shooting a bunch of Jews these days is the number one faux pas – first because it involves Jews and secondly because it involves guns. If it was Muslims being shot, no one would bat an eye, except to condemn gun ownership once again, of course, as the antigun agenda is pretty much upheld by virtually every liberal – and many conservative – organizations. Even Peter Lavelle thinks guns should be restricted in the US. Morons.

Muslims doing the shooting is more likely than not…even in the USA…

You might be surprised about muslims being shot…by Jews…or Christians. If a muslim was killed at a Mosque the outcry would be just as bad. It is a sin to be a self confident Single White Male with any Christian values.

He wouldn’t…peace loving hippy that he was 😉 Seriously though the bible paints Christ as a pacifist, but that don’t make mortals peaceful. Look at the histry of religious endeavor and how many conversions were done through less than passive means. Just ask an Ulsterman.

So, if hundreds of unarmed demonstrating Palestinians are murdered and thousands are injured since March of 2018 by Israeli Jew snipers in Gaza, the US media is silent.

But when less than a handful of jews are murdered in the USA its the crime of the decade.

Washington wants to undermine and destroy all alternatives to “Facebook” and “Twitter”, which are used to both monitor and brainwash the population.
