Stormfront is dead?

Post Jehan I on Mon 28 Aug - 22:01

Just read that the forum has been shut down. And it seems tto be forever.
Maybe we will see some of them migrate there?

http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/stormfront-neo-nazi-website-forced-offline-networl-solutions-daily-stormer-a7916226.html

The Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law claimed responsibility for the site's removal after it had "taken action against Stormfront."

One of the comments under that story:

Storm Front forbid violence, racial epithets, swastikas and more. Members and moderators identified offenders and punished them. We can assume law enforcement monitor posters as well. Now the fringe element of Storm Front are no longer monitored by anyone. Thousands of angry and isolated potential lone wolves. Thousands of Timothy McVeighs. Way to go leftists! Karma sucks, enjoy yours as it comes back to bite you.

I don't know the truth here. But I've read that militant Islamists post on Facebook and Twitter, so what about them?

Cristiano Viejo will miss it, I think he posted there.

do you know where their server was located?, I ask because their positions and way to express them was a bit extreme, to say the least.

I'm surprised that any western country tolerated a forum like that.

To be fair, if they were serious about avoiding a neo-Nazi reputation then one would have expected them to change the name Stormfront to something which sounded more civilised Very Happy

I'm sure it must have had a lot of decent and intelligent members, but from the little I saw of it there were some quite nasty comments.

I never went, but I think that this Nazi witch hunt is no good. People should be free to express ideas, even difficult ideas, with little encumbrance. That's the spirit of freedom of speech. It's a civil right.

I also think that people should be given more freedom to do things online, because it may diffuse them a little.

They should have done a back up a long time ago, the writing was on the wall once Google started censoring things.

I guess its because of the two extremely diffused political ideologies. Mainstream media/liberal oriented/most internet platforms/companies represent the far-left and SF representing the far-right. Seeing how the western media/society is more dominated by the far left; they will do everything in their power to screen out any opposing ideals that threatens their own. Via google or some other corporate entity to screen out internet websites dedicated to the far-right.

'The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piercing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.

I agree that people should be able to suggest and discuss absolutely any political possibility, but what about laws against inciting violence? I suppose the exact wording is crucial. Saying "People with blue skin should be shot" I guess would not be breaking the law, but saying "Shoot people with blue skin" would be.

Disclaimer: I'm not saying Stormfront ever did break any laws. I really don't know.
