The National Socialist rallies at Charlottesville were of no surprise to us. We knew of their plans because they were being organized by the Daily Stormer, the largest National Socialist website on the Internet for several months.
After the protests, the Daily Stormer was shut down not by the government, but by the private companies through which all websites must register. Prior to that event, Dailystormer.com was registered with GoDaddy, on e of the most popular internet URL providers. Their DDOS protection, CloudFlare, also chose to shut down their membership abruptly because, in a statement not intended to be relased to the public, the CEO of the company said he didn’t like the site and didn’t want them to have a public voice because he felt like it:
Earlier today Cloudflare terminated the account of the Daily Stormer. We’ve stopped proxying their traffic and stopped answering DNS requests for their sites. We’ve taken measures to ensure that they cannot sign up for Cloudflare’s services again.
This was my decision. Our terms of service reserve the right for us to terminate users of our network at our sole discretion. My rationale for making this decision was simple: the people behind the Daily Stormer are assholes and I’d had enough.
Let me be clear: this was an arbitrary decision. It was different than what I’d talked talked with our senior team about yesterday. I woke up this morning in a bad mood and decided to kick them off the Internet. I called our legal team and told them what we were going to do. I called our Trust & Safety team and had them stop the service. It was a decision I could make because I’m the CEO of a major Internet infrastructure company.
Having made that decision we now need to talk about why it is so dangerous. I’ll be posting something on our blog later today. Literally, I woke up in a bad mood and decided someone shouldn’t be allowed on the Internet. No one should have that power.[Cloudflare employee’s name redacted] asked after I told him what we were going to do: “Is this the day the Internet dies?” He was half joking, but I actually think it’s an important question. It’s important that what we did today not set a precedent. The right answer is for us to be consistently content neutral. But we need to have a conversation about who and how the content online is controlled. We couldn’t have that conversation while the Daily Stormer site was using us. Now, hopefully, we can.
I’ll be publishing a blog post with all our thoughts on this issue in a few hours. Until then, I’d ask that you not talk about this externally.

The Daily Stormer has since moved onto several domain names which have been subsequently shut down including .wang, .lol, and .ru. Currently it is operating on Dailystormer.al (Algeria) and also exists permanently on TOR, also known as the DarkNet. As Andrew Anglin, the operator for the Daily Stormer has pointed out, website domains with groups directly registered to pedophiles which promote child sexual abuse have not had their domains taken from them, but he has (source, accessible only with TOR browser).
Several weeks later Stormfront, the second largest and the oldest National Socialist website on the Internet administered by the former revoultionary Don Black also had its URL taken from them by their server, Network Solutions:
The founder of Stormfront, the internet’s oldest white supremacist site, said he was trying to get the site back online after a company revoked its domain name following complaints that it promotes hatred and is linked to dozens of murders.
Don Black, a former Ku Klux Klan leader who has operated stormfront.org since 1995, said he had not received any warning before Network Solutions blocked the use of the stormfront.org name on Friday.
Stormfront.org had more than 300,000 registered users, Black said, with traffic increasing since a violent white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Popular with the KKK and neo-Nazi groups, the site included forums where users sometimes promoted white power events.
“I’m talking to my lawyers, and that’s about all I can do right now,” Black said. “I can switch to another domain, but it might wind up the same way.”
Another major white supremacist website, The Daily Stormer, was previously shut down by the web-hosting company Go Daddy and then Google after the violence in Charlottesville.
The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law said the stormfront.org shutdown followed complaints it filed with Network Solutions alleging the site promotes not only hate speech, but deadly violence.
A spokesman for Network Solutions did not immediately return an email seeking comment. (source)
Not only that, but the popular discussion board 4Chan is also beginning to receive threats that it is going to be shut down. It has been all over the site.
While all of this is happening, there is suddenly a renewed interest in the media in “hate groups.” Not surprisingly, Shoebat.com was recently mentioned by name from both the SPLC and local news:
The Southern Poverty Law Center tracks these groups in the U.S., currently listing 917 on their website. Take a look at the map and you’ll see 40 in the Keystone State, fifth place behind California (79), Florida (63), Texas (55) and New York (47).
According to the SPLC, the number of hate groups across the country has been on the rise since 2015, increasing from 892 that year to 917 in 2016. The number includes a 197 percent rise in anti-Muslim groups.
The list of hate groups in Pennsylvania includes seven different Ku Klux Klan chapters, but that’s not all. There are four neo-Nazi groups, six racist skinhead organizations and six more that identify as white nationalist.
The American Family Association in Franklin focuses on anti-LGBT issues. There are anti-Muslim groups like Altra Firearms in Jackson Center and the Shoebat Foundation in Newtown. (source)
We do not like the Daily Stormer because they are pagans who promote the wicked sin that is National Socialism. They are an evil website with evil intentions. Likewise, Daily Stormer does not like us because we do not believe in committing mass murder and reviving a new paganism based the same philosophy of ethnonationalism that Jesus came to destroy and for which He was murdered by His own people and which we have been boldly opposing. Before Dailystormer.com was shut down, they even did an article on us called F*ck Shoebat after Ted’s debate with Austrian National Socialist Martin Sellner (the article was since deleted after Dailystormer.com went down):
Ted’s debate with Martin Sellner. If you have not watched it yet you need to.
Likewise, we do not like Stormfront or Don Black’s ideas either. The only different between Stormfront and Daily Stormer is that Stormfront was for the most part a bunch of older men complaining without taking any action, while Daily Stormer actually took action based on what they say, as evidenced by the Charlottesville rally. National Socialism is rising again and, like its twin sister of International Socialism (better known as Communism or as some people incorrectly and deceptively have titled it today, “Cultural Marxism”) are absolute evils which must be mutually combated, for there is no choice between the choice of two evils except to reject both and follow the way of the Cross.
However, there is a concern from these two shutdowns, since they both came at the hands of corporations acting independently of governments. That concern is what we at Shoebat.com have been saying with each article we write- Shoebat.com is living on borrowed time.
Ultimately the fight between the National and International Socialists has nothing to do with truth, but is about power at all costs with respect to no one. Both sides hate the Church and Christ, and both sides will say whatever they need to in order to garner the support they need to realize their ends. This mindset, while currently manifested in the public eye through this struggle, is the attitude of Corporate America and really, much of the corporations of the rest of the world. They do not care for the most part about truth, right or wrong, good or evil, so long as they are making money from whatever situation and gaining power then they do not care.
This idea is ultimately applied Darwinist philosophy to social life. As the infamous 19th century book Might Makes Right, which the infamous occultist Aleister Crowley paraphrased in many of his writings, says that the purpose of life is power at all costs and that a man should do whatever he can to get as much for himself and have no care for anybody else, and that those who are considered “weaker” or “inferior” should be crushed because only the “strongest” and “most brutal” deserve to live.
Shoebat.com has the proud designation for being labeled by the LGBT themselves as the third most anti-LGBT website on the Internet. We are regularly quoted by websites such as Right Wing Watch and other pro-homosexual media for our writings and videos. We hate the sin of Sodom because God has made clear in the Old Testament that He hates it, and hates it so much that it is one of the four sins that explicitly cry out to Heaven for vengeance (along with willful murder, exploitation of the widow and orphan, and depriving a laborer of his justly earned wages) and about which God made an example in the Bible out of the destruction of Sodom on account of this sin. We want to love as God loves, and to love what God loves means to hate what God hates.
Naturally, we have made many enemies among the LGBT in addition to Muslims and other persons that we have discussed on this site. Shoebat.com has been listed, as noted above, as a “hate group” for years because we actually believe what the Catholic Church teaches and want to live it as passionately and perfectly as we can. We do not care what other people think of us because what matter to us is truth.
Dailystormer.com and Stormfront.org were actual hate websites- they promoted the dislike of another group not because they per se objectively disliked them, but in order that by creating and furthering a social divide they might take power for themselves and be just as and even more brutal to others than the “international socialists” they always complain about.
Rahm Emanuel, political criminal
However, as Rahm Emanuel once said, “never let a good crisis go to waste.” The attacks on those websites- one after the other- and the threats being made against 4Chan in combination with the increased public discourse about “compiling” and “propagating” information on “hate sites”- whether they are actually hateful or not- has nothing to do with stopping evil, but about exploiting a real issue for personal gain. In this case, the issue of the actual rise in National Socialism, which we at Shoebat.com can proudly say have been talking about for a long time and have done groundbreaking research into, is being used to silence people who have views that are considered “socially unacceptable.” This is not a question of if the Daily Stormer, Stormfront, or any other websites are good or not, and we are not promoting them whatsoever. The issue is that the situation with these two websites is being used to set a precedent by companies and in time, governments for shutting down sites that express ideas considered socially unacceptable, which absolutely includes professing Catholic teaching on issues like homosexuality or Islam such as Shoebat.com does. If we are shut down, then you can be certain far more will come.
We still are OK here- for now. I cannot go into detail, but Shoebat.com has been experiencing some “suspicious activity” that has threatened to undermine our work and message. Again, the website itself has not been threatened with a direct shut down yet, but there are rumblings of something greater that is coming.

We have warned that the greatest persecution of Christians is not behind us, but ahead of us, for society has turned away from Christ and is prepared to embrace a new form of paganism just like that of the ancient world. While National Socialism is rising again, it does not matter what shape the evil takes because its end goal is the same, which is your destruction. While we are walking into a “Brave New World,” it is really not new at all, just the same as the ancient world before Constantine, except with bigger weapons and better means of doing the same evils again.
