Net Neutrality was never intended to enable Hate Speech

Today, the morally repugnant Daily Stormer website was forced off the mainstream web onto the ‘dark web’ by the likes of GoDaddy, Google and Scaleway. Every website is propped up by a ‘technology stack’ of web hosting companies, domain name providers, ad networks and payment processors, and Daily Stormer’s network decided unilaterally to take the […]

If it walks, talks and quacks like a Nazi, it’s a Nazi

This photo of Peter Cvjetanovic, a self-described white nationalist who attended a rally of other white nationalists which one protester died at, has gone viral over the weekend.

The Best Political Journalism Of Election 2016

The U.S. Election has been bizarre from start-to-finish. Last Wednesday, Trump spent much of the day at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for his new hotel.
