Russia Orders Internet Providers Not To Host The Daily Stormer

But banning white supremacists can be good for business, even if some customers question corporate control over free speech.

Daily Stormer helped organize the weekend rally in Charlottesville where a 32-year-old woman was killed and 19 people were injured when a man plowed a vehicle into a crowd protesting the white nationalist gathering.

After moving to its Russian domain on Wednesday, Daily Stormer founder Andrew Anglin boasted the site was back in a blog post titled, "A Tale of True Friendship: Trump Called Putin to Get Us a New Domain!"

"But we strongly believe that what GoDaddy, Google, and Cloudflare did here was risky".

"Our terms of service reserve the right for us to terminate users of our network at our sole discretion", he wrote.

Twitter, LinkedIn and Spotify are among the latest wave of companies to join tech giants like Facebook and Google in severing their ties to white supremacist websites.

In contrast, on the Daily Stormer page and other VK groups, users have continued merrily posting racist slurs and threats.

In the wake of a rally in Virginia that devolved into violence, white nationalists have come under greater scrutiny online, some being booted from social media services.

"Tiki Brand is not associated in any way with the events that took place in Charlottesville and are deeply saddened and disappointed", the brand said in a statement on Monday.




This chat application was a favorite of white supremacists before Charlottesville.

"Protecting free speech is not something we do because we agree with all of the speech that gets protected", Electronic Frontier Foundation wrote.

"The Red Wings believe that Hockey is for everyone and we celebrate the great diversity of our fan base and our nation".

The EFF isn't the only non profit that believes the acts against white supremacist groups could harm others in the future. "We must all stand against it". Google also cleansed it from its platform, an action it took in less than 24 hours. "In this case, last week, we removed these people from Airbnb".

PayPal also made the decision to ban "hate groups" from raising money using its services.

Cloudflare CEO Matthew Prince told CNBC on Friday his web service company ended its relationship with a neo-Nazi propaganda site once it became "a massive distraction". It moved over to Google, which immediately dropped it, too, citing a terms of service violation.

The company said it has shut down multiple campaigns to raise money for James Fields, who was accused of driving the vehicle that hit Heyer. "But over the years, economies of scale have led sites and services to pile into just a few infrastructure providers like Cloudflare, leaving large portions of the internet vulnerable at multiple levels". "But I can't facilitate Nazis murdering people", he said. "As a Jew, it's something I've wondered much of my life".

The music streaming service banned music it said "favors hatred or incites violence against race, religion, sexuality or the like" after it was alerted to white supremacist bands on its service by the music blog Digital Music News.

In the aftermath of the Charlottesville terror attack, many companies took action to protest white nationalist groups.
