Christian News Site ‘LifeSite’ Blacklisted by Web Host
Breitbart ^ | Oct 29, 2018 | by Charlie Nash

Posted on 10/29/2018 4:16:40 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

LifeSite, a Christian pro-life news outlet, was allegedly blacklisted by its web host and given just 12 hours to find another host the website, or risk being offline. “LifeSite just received an email at 8:30 p.m. EST from our web-hosting company alerting us that they will be taking our website down within 12 hours, if not sooner,” claimed LifeSite in a statement, Saturday. “We received absolutely no forewarning whatsoever about this decision.”

“Our web developer is scrambling right now to set up a possibly-needed temporary solution to keep the website live. However, we’re going to have to go through the ordeal and expense of moving server companies,” the news outlet continued. “We also intend to fight these attacks, which will carry significant legal costs.”

In an update made following the original statement, LifeSite added, “Our web developer was up all night implementing temporary measures to keep our site online even if our current web-hosting company followed through on its threat to shut down our services. We are extremely grateful for his hard work on a Saturday night. However, this is only a temporary solution. We are currently looking for a web-hosting company that will not cave to threats of this kind.”

On its website, LifeSite describes itself as a “non-profit Internet service dedicated to issues of culture, life, and family,” launched by the pro-life Campaign Life Coalition in 1997, which “emphasizes the social worth of traditional Judeo-Christian principles but is also respectful of all authentic religions and cultures that esteem life, family and universal norms of morality.”

LifeSite was not the only website blacklisted by its web host this week, with free speech social network Gab losing its web host Joyent late on Saturday and being given until just Monday morning to migrate to another host.

The Leftist Fascists are going all out to suppress the speech and views of god-loving, life-loving, country-loving, Constitution-loving American Patriots.

Web hosts that arbitrarily put individuals/entities out of business should be sued.

I say this as someone who has been a web host... still am.

BIG Brother is making his BIG push to completely SNUFF OUT TRULY FREE SPEECH ahead of the Midterm Election and beyond.

This is Civil-War-Triggering stuff right here.

Time for some right-leaning lawyers to band together and start filing some lawsuits against the tech companies.

Waiting for Boogieman to argue that private businesses can do whatever they want and that we have to accept it.

It’s “conservatives” with that attitude that have surrendered and allowed the communist left to the take of the courts, media, schools, and government bureaucracy and now Americans are on the verge of losing our constitutional republican and perhaps our very lives. Yet these GOPe pukes are still advocating for us to be locked out of the Internet, the de facto public square of the next millennium, because they are delusional surrender-monkeys.

You can bet that they are already attempting to do the same to FR. This is not some random occurrence. It is a preconceived operation. Any sight that does not tow to the radical left is in the target box.

What? No porn? No Jew hate? Whatever will our GAB hating FReepers blame this on?

On a more serious note, Jim, I hope you've prepared well. They're probably eye-balling Free Republic too.

I have never forgotten that in the Manchurian Candidate’s second term, he gave some portion of internet control away from the United States.

We better enjoy what we have for now.

Eventually there will be some United Nations regulation on all internet speech. Certain thoughts and comments will not be allowed. Much like Twitter and FakeBook.

Here's another hit from a clue bat.

That is exactly what is going on, and we conservatives are the new “Jews.”

Its a clear religious discrimination lawsuit. If not political.

FOR crying out loud, what is the NAME of the hosting company so we can avoid it? Even Breit couldnt mention it except for some clown who owns it named Flanders...

So...does everyone still want to make the argument that ISPs, service providers, social media, and the rest of Big Tech shouldn't be regulated as utilities?

Needs to stop here and now or it won’t stop at all.

All must unite to fight deplatforming Fascism.
