Why Are Supporters Of A White Supremacist Terror Group Allowed To Organize On Gab? – Angry White Men
One of Torba’s (many) complaints about rival platform Twitter is that it has been lax in detecting and terminating pro-ISIS accounts. (Recently, several ISIS beheading videos had to be purged from Gab TV as well.) But what happens when a pro-Nazi domestic terrorist organization spreads its propaganda on Gab?
Apparently the answer so far is: Nothing.
Gab’s “groups” feature has been criticized for making it easy to find like-minded white supremacists on the site. This includes a group called “Read SIEGE” which boasts nearly 400 members and is dedicated to the writings of Neo-Nazi James Mason, as well as the group Atomwaffen Division (AWD). AWD members have already been implicated in several murders, including that of a gay, Jewish college student.
According to a report by ProPublica, which obtained the group’s chatlogs, Atomwaffen “embraces Third Reich ideology and preaches hatred of minorities, gays and Jews,” and has “as many as 20 cells around the country, small groups of indeterminate size in Texas, Virginia, Washington, Nevada and elsewhere.”
