[UPDATED] Daily Stormer to Disappear From the Internet After Insulting Victim of Deadly Car-Ramming in Charlottesville
See below for update.
On Sunday, the hateful white supremacist website Daily Stormer posted a vile and disgusting article insulting Heather Heyer, the lone civilian casualty of the violence in Charlottesvielle, Va., over the weekend.
(Warning: The material from this article is deeply disturbing.)
The article's headline proved egregious enough, "Heather Heyer: Woman Killed in Road Rage Incident was a Fat, Childless 32-Year-Old Sl*t." Hard as it is to believe, the article actually gets worse.
The first of the "five fat facts you need to know" is that Heyer "was Fat and a Drain on Society," according to Daily Stormer. Andrew Anglin, the author behind such hatred, somehow brought himself to write this: "Despite feigned outrage by the media, most people are glad she is dead, as she is the definition of useless. A 32-year-old woman without children is a burden on society and has no value."
"Due to female privilege, and the fact that they do virtually nothing their entire lives, women live an average of 5 years longer than men," Anglin disgustingly added. "The average female lifespan is 81 years. That means for 49 more years, this fat slob would have been leeching off of men's work."
But the hatred did not end there. "Had she not died yesterday, hundreds of thousands of dollars would have been spent on propping-up this gross creature who had failed to do her most basic duty — her only real duty, in fact — and reproduce."
Anglin gets even worse. "Having no children at that age, it can be assumed that she had multiple abortions, and was thus herself a child murderer."
The article went on to claim that the only reason Heyer died was that she was too "fat" to dodge the car that killed her (yes, seriously, the article says that).
Anglin even went so far as to praise the driver who killed her as "a hardcore player, and sources claim that he didn't give a f**k." Police have identified the driver as neo-Nazi James Fields.
Liberal activist Amy Siskind rightly decried this post, calling on web hosting company GoDaddy to stop giving such hatred a platform on Daily Stormer. "You host The Daily Stormer - they posted this on their site. Please retweet if you think this hate should be taken down & banned," Siskind wrote.
On Sunday evening, GoDaddy announced that it would give Daily Stormer 24 hours to find a new hosting service. "We informed The Daily Stormer that they have 24 hours to move the domain to another provider, as they have violated our terms of service," GoDaddy tweeted, in response to Siskind.
