Gab.com is under attack. We have been systematically no-platformed by App Stores, multiple hosting providers, and several payment processors. We have been smeared by the mainstream media for defending free expression and individual liberty for all people and for working with law enforcement to ensure that justice is served for the horrible atrocity committed in Pittsburgh. Gab will continue to fight for the fundamental human right to speak freely.
As we transition to a new hosting provider Gab will be inaccessible for a period of time. We are working around the clock to get Gab.com back online. Thank you and remember to speak freely.
The synagogue “shooting” is already used as a pretext to silence the Alternative Media, specifically Gab, a libertarian alternative to Twitter. Unlike Twitter, Gab does not censor speech, although Gab vehemently condemns acts of violence and terrorism.
Bowers has been active on social media, including Gab, where he calls himself @onedingo. His bio on Gab says “Jews are the children of satan. (john 8:44)”. (New York Post)
Upon learning of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter’s identity, Gab immediately took down Bowers’ page, but not before backing it up and sending it to the FBI.
For letting Bowers speak freely on Gab, first PayPal banned Gab, followed by Gab‘s hosting provider, Joyent, saying it will discontinue hosting Gab on Monday morning because of an unspecified “breach of the Joyent Terms of Service”.
But Facebook and Twitter aren’t facing any backlash although Bowers had accounts on both. Likewise, package bomber Cesar Sayoc was allowed to spout threats on Twitter for two years. Twitter suspended Sayoc only after he was arrested two days ago, on Friday, Oct. 26. (RT)

In a tweet this morning, Gab says they’ve secured a new hosting provider.
