Gab Next on the Chopping Block for Domain Theft

6533381335_11a6be41f2_bAs the reader is presumably aware, Gab is this writer’s last location on the surface web (excluding this blog, where I have vowed to not speak of my politics). It is the only place that would allow me to post freely. I have been banned from all other platforms and had my domain stolen so as I cannot even host my own website.

When it became clear to me that Gab was my last place to communicate with anyone who has not already downloaded the Tor Browser – as you have, if you are currently viewing this site – I threw my weight and energy behind the site. I became an investor, subscribed to the paid version, and encouraged all of my readers to join and considering supporting it financially.

In part due to my support, Torba was able to finish raising his investor goal of $1,000,000. I also managed to increase the site’s active usership by at least 15% (Gab was much less popular than the Daily Stormer before it went down).

Things went okay for a few weeks.

Then yesterday, the site’s owner, Andrew Torba, claimed that a meme created by Emily Youcis making fun of Charlottesville crash victim Heather Heyer’s weight (which I will not post here, for reasons of keeping this blog free of controversial content) violated the site’s ToS and that I had 24 hours to remove it (with the implication that I would be banned if I did not).


Of course, I refused to remove it and decided to use my remaining 24 hours on the site to launch a Crusade against Torba, calling him a fraud who had tricked investors with the promise of a free speech site only to break that promise as soon as his money was in.

This caused the entire userbase of the site to go into a full-on revolt mode.

Polls showed that 85% of the site’s userbase was planning to leave with me if I was banned.

Then, in the middle of this mess, Torba posted a blog on Medium where he revealed that the domain registrar, Asia Registry, had threatened to steal his domain in 48 hours if the post was not removed.


Torba then posted a series of Gabs explaining that he was actually lying about the post violating the site’s ToS, and the post in question was simply being targeted because if it is not removed, the domain will be pulled.


He said he could have handled it better.

In fact, I don’t think he could have.

Whether by accident or on purpose – I have no idea, and it’s up to you to determine how clever you think Andrew Torba is – he proved to any and all investors that if free speech is removed from the site, all paying users and most non-paying users will freak-out and leave the site.

Whether it was a Machiavellian maneuver or a misstep is inconsequential: the point was made, beautifully, that Gab is only viable as a free speech platform.

Following this, Torba asked me respectfully to delete the post in order to keep the domain from being stolen by the registrar.


I did so.

The reason I did so was not simply because I am a gentleman – although this is a known fact – but because the request came with a promise to work out a registrar solution, which is one of my own key problems and why I have been forced onto the pedoweb.

I will also note that Torba lying to his own userbase to purposefully get them to flip out and attack him in order to prove a point to investors regarding the viability of the platform raised my respect for him by about 6 million percent. Again – even if it was accidental. Accidents can be brilliant.


Gab was registered in a registrar before the concept of registrar’s stealing domains existed.

This is a new thing, which only happened when GoDaddy decided to kick Daily Stormer off for… a fat joke. Since then, we were kicked off of Google Domains, Namecheap, Dreamhost, Rozcom (the Russian national registrar), the Albanian national registrar (which I forget the name of) and I think 3 others.

Currently, our .com (DAILYSTORMER.COM) is still being illegally held by Google, and I do not have access to it.

Also, Stormfront has had its domain stolen by Network Solutions. It is clear that this is now the new model for shutting down wrongthink on the internet.

The government has not become involved in any of this, even though it probably violates the FCC’s 2015 ruling on Net Neutrality, as a registrar is a type of internet service provider.


So, the threat to Torba that the domain would be stolen was not an empty one.

I fully understand why he made the decision he made. I am not sure it was the best decision, especially given that he is now going to appear on the Tucker Carlson Show (tonight, in fact), and has the ability to blow this whole thing up.

But best decision or not, it is an understandable decision. Because after you are kicked off of a registrar, there is no way to get back on, as my situation has demonstrated.

My Reaction

My reaction – which was shared by the overwhelming majority of the site’s core userbase, including many people who hate me – was absolutely justified and appropriate. Free speech either exists or it does not, and Torba crafted the ToS of Gab in such a way as it allows for any and all legally protected speech. Any and all violations of that should be met with unadulterated outrage if they are to take place in the future.

However, after what took place over the last 24 hours, I am confident that this will not be a problem for Gab in the future. At least not any time soon.

It has been shown to everyone that people are on the site because they love freedom. Not for any other reason. Gab is an extremely idealistic venture, which I believe has the opportunity to play a role in the coming Alt-Tech revolution.

So, once again I will renew my call for all of you to join Gab, and to follow me there. It is now evident that Torba has no plan to ban me, so I am even more supportive than I was before this incident.

Gab is at the forefront in the battle for free speech, and we all need to support them in any way we can.

Plus, I post a lot of fun and interesting things there, which I think you will enjoy.

In Conclusion

Overall, this little crisis was a very fun time.

Remember that: you have to enjoy this stuff, or there is no way in hell we’re going to win.

The Daily Stormer will be Back on the Surface Internet – Until Then, We are Still on Tor


I just want to make it clear to everyone that the Daily Stormer will be back.

Right now, we are working through technical issues that no one in the history of the internet has ever had to deal with. And we aren’t getting any help.

This is a big thing.

However, the site is still functioning and I am still writing as usual. My writing is as good as it ever was. Better, perhaps.

We are on the Darknet.


In fact, we are the biggest website ever on the Darknet.

In order to access the site, you simply have to download Tor browser:

And then put this address in the URL bar:


You can then view the site as usual.

The only thing that is not working is the forum and comments section. That is complicated to get running, and we chose instead to focus on getting back on the real internet.

For any and all updates on the situation, you need to sign up for Gab and follow me there.

I am posting there all day and keeping people updated on things, as well as posting screenshots of articles for people to share.

On This Blog

It’s unclear what I’m allowed to say on this blog. It is clear that my politics as well as certain forms of jokes have been banned now by an international tech cartel.

However, as it could be another week before I am on the internet, I may post some stuff here and see what it takes to get banned.

For instance:

Are my views on women internationally banned by this corporate cartel?

What about my diet advice?

Gym routines and other fitness advice?

I’m not sure. But it would be interesting to know.

And clearly, it is unlikely that this cabal which has come down on me is likely to send me a letter with lists of things I’m allowed to say and what I am not allowed to say.

I will, hopefully later today, be doing a write-up on the various reasons that I was supposedly banned by all of these companies. I will be posting that here as well as on the Daily Stormer, as I believe that that is something that should be available on the surface internet right now.

I was Born in 1984


I was born on July 27th in the Year of Our Lord Nineteen-hundred and Eighty-Four.

The book that carries the name of the year I was born, which was published in 1948, introduced the concept of a dystopian future where individuals could be “unpersoned.”


As it were, in this same year that I have been kicked off of the internet because my politics – or perhaps my humor, it’s not clear – were considered simply too darned offensive, I have turned thirty-three. This is the same age that Jesus Christ was when he was crucified by the Sanhedrin for politically incorrect speech against the Jewish establishment of the time.

Of course, the Sanhedrin did not actually crucify him themselves, but bullied the ruling powers to do so, under threat of a mob revolt.

Fifty years ago today, on August 25th, 1967, George Lincoln Rockwell, the leader of the American Nazi Party, a man who could have saved this country, was assassinated.

To add to this strange numerology, we are exactly 50 years out from 1967, when the cultural revolutionaries declared the “Summer of Love.” And, on August 21st, less than a week after I became the first person to be effectively kicked off of the internet, a decision made by a cabal of tech executives who have the ability to do such things, and exactly 10 days after the torchlight march in Charlottesville, we witnessed a total solar eclipse cross the United States.

The sun turned black.

Movements of the stars have throughout human history been seen as omens, denoting energy shifts which alter the human experience.

I believe that we are entering a new age.

Everything will change. Things will happen that you would have never imagined possible. Hell will break loose. The streets will be lined with blood. And from this chaos, a new order will emerge.

I believe this process will take less than a decade. Perhaps 7 years.

But these are going to be very difficult years. Steel yourselves.

Be prepared, as best you can.

A darkness is descending on us all. And only the strongest of us will make it through it.

And to think: all I ever wanted to do was make fun of minorities on the internet.

On the Current Status of the Daily Stormer and the Weird Events Surrounding It


As I write, it is currently unclear what will happen to, which was registered on Dreamhost.

However, assuming that they have decided not to host the Daily Stormer, I will leave the site on the Darknet for the timebeing.

The up and down of the on and off is tiring and emotionally both for me and my team and no doubt for the reader as well.

Every webhost has given a different but equally nonsensical explanation for these bans, indicating that the site has officially been banned from the internet by some unseen force that gives orders on such things, and it is going to take more than a new registrar to get it back on the real internet.

On the Darknet the site shall remain until one of these five things happens:

  1. I able to get it in writing from a registrar that they will not fold,
  2. The government steps in and tells registrars that they do not have the ability to censor legal content,
  3. A court order is given that the Daily Stormer has a right to be registered somewhere,
  4. GoDaddy, my original registrar, decides to take me back, or
  5. A domain outside of the ICANN system becomes accessible

For option number four, I don’t need an apology. The firing of the CEO, announced Tuesday, is as much of an admission of wrongdoing as I need.

Reuters and other media is implying that his resignation was due to the poor decision to terminate my site, which set off this whole chain of extremely bizarre and perhaps somewhat entertaining events.


It would be logical for GoDaddy to simply say “well, we changed our mind,” but it is extremely unlikely, due to the political implications of such a move.

However, it is now absolutely clear that the decision was a mistake for them and for the whole of the tech industry, hence the resignation (which is rather transparently a firing).

It only took ten days after the company abandoned its neutrality policy for the media to start demanding they ban more content.

VICE published an article today musing about why, since they banned the Daily Stormer, they are not banning recent “fappening” nude photographs of celebrities which were the result of a hack (I haven’t been following it closely, but it appears as though some celebs failed to update their iPhones, rather than some fault of Apple).

When contacted, GoDaddy claimed that the Daily Stormer was different, because we were “inciting violence.”


This position is indefensible for the simple reason that it is not true. While not directly saying it, the spokesperson also seems to imply that the Daily Stormer was taken down as a result of a court order, which is also untrue.

I have not committed any crime and I am not being accused of a crime.

The original statement from the company made to the New York Times did not even make the claim that it was inciting violence, simply that they “believe” my humorous blog post “could” incite violence.


Of course, any individual is capable of believing anything, and any content is capable of inciting violence.

There are people who believe the earth is flat and the Manson killings were “incited” by Beatles songs that Charlie thought he was hearing secret messages in.

Groundless belief in vague, statistically non-quantifiable potential outcomes are not the basis for any mature adult’s decision-making process, and certainly should not be the basis for the decision-making process of the leadership of major multinational corporations, especially those which have the ability to decide what printed materials the public is allowed to have access to.

And as VICE noted, actress Jennifer Lawrence has said that she believes that posting of her hacked nude photographs is a form of sexual violence.

Of course, GoDaddy has now transformed their “belief” into a statement of fact – “the Daily Stormer was inciting violence.”

The media itself has not even pretended to take the claim by GoDaddy seriously.

The fact of the matter is that I was banned from the internet for  a joke, that while being obviously offensive, was nothing more or less than a joke.

Although explaining a joke kills the fun of it, I think at this point, this having become one of the most infamous jokes in history – and a joke which has in fact altered history – I can go ahead and explain it.

We have a culture of outrage. The direction of our society is determined by who can become the most offended, and make the most noise about how offended they are. I have a belief, which is supported by logic and data which I may present on this personal blog at a later date, that this outrage culture is not only ridiculous, but sociologically unsustainable.

The Daily Stormer is a Performance Art Project and the Andrew Anglin Who Writes for It is a Character I Have Invented

I am not a “Neo-Nazi White Supremacist.” In fact, I do not even know what that is. It has not ever been defined by the people who use it, despite repeated requests for a definition. I am also not a “hater,” nor do I know what that term means when it is used to refer to me. It would seem to be self-explanatory – “a person who is driven by the emotion of hate” – and yet I am not driven by hate, but rather by a genuine desire to see Western civilization continue into the future. One could even say that I am driven by love, if one wanted to get sappy about it.

Though we share the same name, the Andrew Anglin who appears on the site is not me but a character that I have created, an outrageously extreme individual who takes pleasure in being provocative, and maintains an unhinged desire to commit numerous genocides. Though it doesn’t matter who I am, as the only thing that matters is my plan, it may be worthwhile to let the record show that I am a very nice person, who has always treated people of all races as individuals in any and all of my one-on-one interpersonal interactions.

It may also be interesting to note that while most of my critics have lived in insulated white upper-class environments for their entire lives, save for perhaps a few paid “volunteer” trips to third world countries where they live in an sanitized, controlled environment for a week or two as they rack-up social justice points, I have spent most of my adult life outside of the Western world, much of it in third world countries populated by nonwhites. At one point in my mid-twenties, I spent the better part of a year living with a primitive jungle tribe in a bamboo hut.

As an actual human being, I do not resemble the character of Andrew Anglin which, with the enthusiastic assistance of the media and groups such as the SPLC, I have created for the Daily Stormer.

A big part of what I do with the Andrew Anglin character on the Daily Stormer is trigger the outrage culture, in order to expose the fundamentally flawed nature of it, as well as to draw attention to myself and my agenda, which would otherwise simply be ignored. That certainly worked with the Heather Heyer piece.

Making Fun of Dead Women as the Ultimate Sin

Making fun of a dead woman’s weight and mocking her lack of children at an age far-past peak fertility appears to be a sort of ultimate heresy in the outrage culture. But the only reason for this is that outrage is politically powerful.

No one truly cares that this woman is dead, save for perhaps her family members. She is just a random person, and random people die all the time. No one throws a fit over it. Dead people get made fun of all the time and no one throws a fit over it.

There is a website and an entire series of books entitled “The Darwin Awards” devoted to making fun of people who die in ridiculous ways.


They catalog the deaths of people whose own stupidity gets them killed, and the deaths are very often gruesome. One could certainly make the argument that both of those things were true in the case of Heather Heyer’s death. It seems objectively unwise for a person of that size to attend a rally with the purpose of inciting violence, and the road rage incident was itself absurd. The events following the incident, which included claims by the media, local authorities and national politicians that the crash was “a premeditated act of terrorism,” intensified the absurdity of the situation.

So, the assertion that it is somehow “evil” to make fun of a dead person does not have any cultural precedent. Exploiting the death of Heather Heyer was politically useful for a mob of fanatics who wish to drastically transform, or perhaps just outright abolish, Western culture.

Of course, I also exploited her death for political purposes. I think I did it much more honestly. But that is not especially important to me.

The real joke, like all of my best jokes, was not the post itself but the response that I knew it would provoke.

Certainly, I had no idea the joke would go this far. Right now, we are talking about a complete transformation of the tech industry. Some of the most powerful people in the world, as well as society at large, are considering the fact that these few mega-corporations are capable of unifying together in order to ban legal content from the internet, and beginning to draw the conclusion that this situation is incredibly dangerous.

I intended the article to be socially significant, and to prove a point. In fact, though it has brought hell down on me personally, the results were more than I ever could have hoped for. Right now, we are seeing the beginnings of a real conversation about the government regulating the domain registry system. Any move by the government to regulate tech would of course go further than that, and result in a much larger scale regulation of this industry which has become much, much too powerful to remain in private hands. Excluding the media and the mega-corporations themselves, no one on any side of the political spectrum likes the idea of a cabal of billionaires effectively being able to unilaterally control the direction of society.

Needless to say, I am extremely happy with the results of this particular piece of performance art.

The fallout from it shows that the ruling powers are extremely unhappy with the way things shook out. They miscalculated, they made me into a folk hero and a martyr, and they turned themselves into megalomaniac super-villains intent on using suppression of speech to direct the course of society.

It could not have came together more perfectly.

I will overcome these setbacks, as I always have, and the amount of people listening to me will grow to numbers I could never have imagined two weeks ago.

In the Future on This Blog

The powers that wish to shut down the agenda of social transformation that I am working on. They have a vested interest in maintaining the idea that the Andrew Anglin character exists as a real person, and that his plan is pure evil. That he is a genocidal maniac out of some children’s comic book who must be put down at any cost.

If this blog is allowed to remain up – and it should, as long as I uphold my pledge to not talk about politics on it, as it is ostensibly only my politics that have been banned from the internet and not me as an individual – then I will elaborate here on this concept of Daily Stormer as performance art.

This concept is something that any regular reader is already aware of. Part of the process of understanding the site is slowly coming to the realization that the format it is presented in is a form of performance art. The esoteric nature of it is an adventure for the reader, like the process of joining a secret club.

However, the purpose of maintaining the character was to gain mass media attention by creating spectacle. That is a mission, I believe that I can fairly say, has been accomplished. Presently, I have a duty to make my ideas accessible to the wider audience that this massive media exposure has given me, and that requires me to go through the heart-wrenching process of breaking character and explaining the nature of my art.

The Daily Stormer was never the place for such a project, as the Andrew Anglin who writes the Daily Stormer must remain at the helm of that ship. So it is fitting that right now the Daily Stormer is fixed on the Darknet, and the only place that those unwilling to go through the trouble of figuring out how to view it will see my writing is here, where I will remain apolitical, by dictate of the the Silicon Vally elite, and instead simply provide meta commentary on the nature of the project.

I may also reveal more personal details about myself, the life I have lived and perhaps tell of my understanding of human existence and all of existence as a spiritual phenomenon, rather than a material one.

If this blog were to be banned, proving that I am banned as a human being from the internet, that would simply accelerate the debate about the ongoing process of unpersoning that I have been put through, and thus while being personally unfortunate, ultimately serve my goal of causing a breakdown of the present project of authoritarian corporate shutdown of the free flow of information on the internet.

First blog post


This is a personal blog.

I will not be writing about news and politics here, but instead my personal struggle with the tech world, which has been defined by brutal abuse.

I will also explain some of my own thoughts on the direction society is going in due to censorship of ideas.

Along with this, it will give me a place to speak directly to the media and to the people with regards to the situation I am in, which is not possible on my account on, due to the character limit as well as the restriction on content to those not registered on the site.

Again, this is not going to be my comments on politics. So if I am banned from this platform, that will mean that not only my politics, but me as a human being am banned from the internet.

There will be no comments on this blog, as they may bring into question the decidedly non-political nature of the blog. If you wish to contact me, you can do it on Gab, or on the Daily Stormer forum when it is back up.

This blog will also have an aesthetic theme based around pulp art, mainly from the first half of the 20th century. This is not for any particular reason, other than that it perhaps fits the “letters from prison” format, but more so it is simply that I am personally very fond of pulp fiction and the art that went along with it. At some point, I may explain my fascination with this obscure literary genre.

Thanks for visiting.
