Trump 2017: Hackers Takes Control of Daily Stormer, White-Nationalist Hate Website

A hacker collective claiming to be affiliated with Anonymous has evidently taken control of white-nationalist hate website the Daily Stormer — and the group says it’s going to shut down the site within 24 hours.

The hacker or hackers behind the Daily Stormer hijacking said they took over the site because it posted a vicious and defamatory article about Heather Heyer, the 32-year-old woman who was murdered at the white-nationalist rally in Xharlottesville on Saturday.

“WE HAVE TAKEN THIS SITE IN THE NAME OF HEATHER HEYER A VICTIM OF WHITE SUPREMACIST TERRORISM,” a message posted on the Daily Stormer early Tuesday morning said.

The commandeering of Daily Stormer — the neo-Nazi site whose slogan is “The World’s Most Genocidal Republican Website” — came just a few hours after the site provider, GoDaddy said it would terminate service because of the Heyer post.

The Daily Stormer, launched in 2014, has enthusiastically supported Donald Trump as a candidate and as U.S. president. After Trump’s statement about the violence in Charlottesville in which he said “we condemn… this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence that’s on many sides,” the Daily Stormer praised Trump for not explicitly denouncing white nationalists.

The Anonymous group operates as a decentralized network of hackers, who have taken credit for attacks on multiple corporate and government-affiliated sites over the past decade. The group uses Guy Fawkes masks (pictured above) as its visual calling card, in the style of the “V for Vendetta” graphic novel and 2005 Warner Bros. film.
