Anonymous Claims To Have Control Of White Supremacist Outlet Daily Stormer

Anonymous claims to have taken control of white supremacist site the Daily Stormer following an article on Heather Heyer

  • Founder of the Daily Stormer Andrew Anglin is responsible for the article about Heyer

  • Anonymous claims the site will be permanently taken down in 24 hours

  • Heyer was killed in a terrorist attack on Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia

  • Go Daddy stated in a tweet they were banning the Daily Stormer for violating policy

UPDATE: Your Anon News, one of the largest Anonymous accounts on Twitter, has claimed that they do not know of anyone that is responsible for the hack. In a series of tweets, the group stated that they believe it to be a stunt by Anglin as well.

One of the biggest reasons for believing the site was not hacked is that old content remains on the site. Normally, in a situation like this the hackers responsible would have destroyed the entire site by now. 

Well-known white supremacist media outlet Daily Stormer appears to have been hacked following a hate filled article targeting Heather Heyer who was killed in a terrorist attack in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday.

The article that founder of Daily Stormer, Andrew Anglin, wrote about Heyer was so vile that the article will not be quoted or linked in this article.

Anglin and the Daily Stormer appear to now be learning a valuable lesson when lacking human decency on the Internet. You never know who is watching.

Early Sunday morning, an article was posted to the Daily Stormer titled, “END OF HATE: ANONYMOUS NOW IN CONTROL OF DAILY STORMER #TANGODOWN.” In the article, it claims that hacktivists Anonymous have taken control of the site. The article reads as follows.

THIS SITE IS NOW UNDER THE CONTROL OF ANONYMOUS

WE HAVE TAKEN THIS SITE IN THE NAME OF HEATHER HEYER A VICTIM OF WHITE SUPREMACIST TERRORISM

FOR TOO LONG THE DAILY STORMER AND ANDREW ANGLIN HAVE SPEWED THEIR PUTRID HATE ON THIS SITE

THAT WILL NOT BE HAPPENING ANYMORE

WE HAVE ALL OF THE DETAILS ON THE SERVERS AND WILL BE RELEASING THE DATA WHEN WE FEEL THE TIME IS RIGHT

WE HAVE ALSO GATHERED LOCATIONAL DATA ON ANGLIN HIMSELF AND ARE SENDING OUR ALLIES IN LAGOS TO PAY HIM A VISIT IN PERSON

THIS EVIL CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO STAND

IT TOOK A UNITED FORCE OF ELITE HACKERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD TO BREACH THE SYSTEMS AND THE FIREWALL

WE HAVE HAD THE DAILY STORMER IN OUR SITES FOR MONTHS NOW

THE EVENTS OF CHARLOTTESVILLE ALERTED US TO THE NEED FOR IMMEDIATE ACTION

WE WANT YOU NAZIS TO KNOW: YOUR TIME IS SHORT

WE WILL ALLOW THE SITE TO REMAIN ONLINE FOR 24 HOURS SO THE WORLD CAN WITNESS THE HATE

THEN WE WILL SHUT IT DOWN

PERMANENTLY

HACKERS OF THE WORLD HAVE UNITED IN DEFENSE OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE

YOU SHOULD HAVE EXPECTED US

If the threat is true, it appears that the Daily Stormer’s long run of hate propaganda has finally come to an end in the name of Heather Heyer.

However, some claim that the post is merely Anglin trolling the Internet. The post follows Go Daddy stating in a tweet that they were removing the Daily Stormer from their servers for violating their terms of agreements in 24 hours. It is rather weird that the timing of the two run so close together.

Heyer was killed after James Alex Fields Jr rammed his vehicle into a group of people at a rally put together by white nationalists. Nineteen others were injured in the attack. Heyer, who has strong ties with white supremacy groups, has been charged with 2nd-degree murder.
