Pittsburgh Synagogue Massacre: Social media that hosted anti-Semitic posts by Jew-hater terrorist ‘being forced offline’
A website that hosted anti-Semitic posts authored by the Jew-hater terrorist who murdered 11 Jewish worshipers at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, it is being forced offline following the attack.
Gab.com, which is popular with white nationalists, so-called alt-right and neo-Nazis in general, said its hosting provider Joyent would be suspending its services as of Monday morning, while PayPal has also reportedly banned the site.
“Gab will likely be down for weeks because of this,” the site said on its Twitter account.
“We will continue to fight for free expression and individual liberty online for all people. Big tech can not stop us. The mainstream media can not stop us. The People will defend freedom against tyranny as they always have and always will,” it tweeted.
Gab had earlier released a statement saying it had “zero tolerance” for violence or terrorism and was “saddened and disgusted by the news” from Pittsburgh.
Gab said in a post that after learning of the attack, it had matched the name of the terrorist – Robert Bowers – to one of its account holders.
It then took down the Bowers account and immediately contacted the FBI, adding: “We will do everything in our power to work with law enforcement to see that justice is served.”
Federal prosecutors have filed hate crime charges against the Jew-hater terrorist who opened fire on a packed Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday, shouting ‘all Jews must die’ as he sprayed Jewish worshippers with bullets during a Brit Milah ceremony and Shabbat services, murdering 11 people and wounding 6 others, including 4 police officers.
Robert Bowers, 46, of suburban Baldwin, surrendered to authorities after the shooting attack at the Tree of Life synagogue.
Bowers faces 29 charges in all in the deadliest rampage on the Jewish community in US history that left the historic Jewish neighborhood of Squirrel Hill and the rest of the world stunned.
