London (CNN Business)Gab has been taken offline following revelations that the suspected Pittsburgh synagogue gunman used the social network to threaten Jews.
A statement on Gab’s website Monday said the platform would be “inaccessible for a period of time” as it switches to a new web host. It said the issue was being worked on “around the clock.”
“Gab.com is under attack,” the statement said. “We have been systematically no-platformed [and] smeared by the mainstream media for defending free expression and individual liberty for all people.”
Gab said on Twitter that it had been “banned” over the past 24 hours by payment processing firms PayPal and Stripe, as well as hosting service Joyent and domain register GoDaddy.**
The twitter clone GAB.ai has been told by its hosting company that they must leave for violating their polices on hate speech and violence. As we’ve seen previously on this forum, republicans find this to be pure censorship and a violation of gab’s rights.
So which company should be forced to host Gab?
