At the same time GAB is suing Google for anti trust violations.
According to David Z. Morris at Fortune magazine, GAB supports Milo Yiannopoulous whom Morris slanders by calling him a white supremacist who was banned from Google for his racially offensive harassment of a black actress
Gab, a social media platform that touts its openness to any and all forms of speech, has sued Google for refusing to list the Gab Android App on the Google Play store. Gab claims, according to Ars Technica, that Google denied its listing to protect a data-sharing agreement with Twitter, potentially violating antitrust rules. But the stakes here may be more about perception than the law.
Twitter used to think of itself as the free speech wing of the free speech party. But the internet obviously took that as a challenge, breeding dozens of professional trolls like Milo Yiannopoulous, who was banned from Twitter after organizing a racially offensive harassment campaign against actor Leslie Jones.
Yiannopoulos, along with many white supremacists and other prominent figures of the so-called alt-right, have since migrated to Gab as their primary public platform. Antitrust lawyer Mark Patterson told Ars Technica that if Google could show that they chose not to allow Gab into the Play Store because of possible reputational damage from that strong association with hate groups, the antitrust claim would have little chance of success.
Even if it is summarily thrown out of court, Gabs suit will help the nascent platform further establish itself as an alternative to Silicon Valleys center-left cultural norms. Those have been on display recently in Googles move to silence critics at think tanks and internally, and in a broader tech-world crackdown on formerly-tolerated hate speech.
Morris is not correct in his outrageous allegations about GAB and Milo and he should be ashamed. More likely Milo was kicked out of Twitter because he was a successful conservative gay man. Liberals hate successful conservative gay men.
Twitter over the past year terminated the accounts of numerous successful conservatives like Milo during the election and prevented tweets from conservative outlets like this one from being wide spread. Twitter decides which groups are hate groups through their own fascist interpretation of what is a hate group. Any successful conservative apparently fits their definition of a hate group.
GAB capitalized on the left wing bias of social site Twitter and now is being attacked for allowing free speech on its site by Google and the alt left mainstream media (MSM).
The social sites like Twitter, Google and Facebook are in an all out war against conservatives. GAB is the conservative alternative so they must shut it down by calling it names and claiming it promotes hate rather than noting that it promotes free speech.
The left will lie, cheat and steal to eliminate free speech.
Milo could end up running Twitter? How hysterical.
Full Title: Twitter Rival GAB Served Notice its Registrar Will Seize its Domain if Not Changed Due to GAB Promoting Free Speech
So what is the company name of the domain registrar threatening GAB?
“Hate Speech” is in the ear of the hearer.
It does not exist..................
A lot of Conservatives opened accounts at GAB because Twitter kept silencing them and banning their accounts. GAB is completely free speech but it’s new so it doesn’t have a lot of the capabilities of Twitter yet. It looks like somebody doesn’t want it to succeed. I joined it so that I could follow Conservatives that have been banned by Twitter.
They have now chosen to attempt to put out of business anyone who advocates real Free Speech..............
Registrar is Asia Registry based in Australia.
I just signed up!
IP registrars absolutely should ONLY serve to mark IP addresses as reserved, optionally with DNS mapping of a name thereto. This isn’t just a matter of sociopolitical morality, it’s a technical issue: refusal to do so can result in IP squatting, where someone just parks a server on an arbitrary address at risk of collision with other addresses, and/or just leads the “F DNS” charge and the current registry system breaks down.
Can be combatted by filing/pressing charges against the registrar for any number of arguably “illegal activity” websites, compelling the registrar to opt for “common carrier” or equivalently content-neutral stance.
Take a tour at the linked site and read the comments.
This. We need to make an example out of people who threaten us. We need to destroy their businesses in any way of which we can think.
The Whois record lists Instra Corporation Pty Ltd of Melbourne as domain admin.
That makes it a little hard to boycott a service i'm not using anyways. Why on Earth would GAB be letting these bastards control their Domain?
The first thing they need to do is get control of their system away from all the Social Justice Warrior weenies on the planet, and also keep it away from the Corporate Giants who respond to pressure from Social Justice Weenies.
The problem is, anyone who disagrees with the leftists is immediately branded a white supremacist. It’s sick. So, they can claim what they want, but, literally, they’ll have to prove EVERY SINGLE BANNED USER is a white supremacist. And that will cost them their business.
I just followed you. A lot of the conservatives I follow get banned now and then from Twitter so until they get back we use GAB. LOL I wish Trump would sign up. I also like to go over there and read posts.
