Alt-right social media site Gab in meltdown mode after Pittsburgh shooting — begs Donald Trump to ‘ACT!’

Published

on

The social media site Gab, a Twitter-like platform popular with the radical right wing because of its objection to any form of censorship, is in a full meltdown under criticism for its ties to the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter.

Gab has lost its hosting service and funding avenues, and is calling on President Donald Trump to help.

In a lengthy post on Medium, Gab says it did everything it could after the shooting and defended its commitment to free speech.

“We have nothing but love for all people and freedom,” the post read. “We have consistently disavowed all violence. Free speech is crucial for the prevention of violence. If people can not express themselves through words, they will do so through violence. No one wants that. No one.”

Gab is not a well-known site, but its full-throated support of free speech has made it home to a number of extremists kicked off other platforms.

Gab’s homepage has been down and giving an error message because its hosting provider banned it. Funding services like PayPal and Stripe have cut ties, severing the fledgling company’s ability to raise capital.

Gab’s management has taken to using rival Twitter to allege “direct collusion between big tech giants” and to ask President Donald Trump to intervene.

In 2017, Google banned Gab from its app store.

Gab is currently retweeting mostly conservative writers who say the site’s de-platforming is totalitarianism and recalls George Orwell’s 1984.
