A Family, An Employer, Social Media Companies, Web Host Providers, and A Government Find Fault After Charlottesville

Finding Fault Failure
Other people responding negatively to you
because you create a failure they detest

Several alt-right groups came together in Charlottesville, Virginia on August 12, 2017 “to show a unified front.” The alt-right groups wanted “to move their community from the virtual world into the real one.” The rally was a protest against Charlottesville’s city government plan to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. The protest became violent. James Alex Fields drove his car into a group of counter protesters, killing 32 year old Heather Heyer and injuring 19 others. @YesYoureRacist identified several of the white supremacists at the rally,

Peter Tefft

Horrified to learn of his son’s involvement, Pearce Tefft wrote an open letter denouncing Peter’s “vile, hateful and racist rhetoric and actions.” Mr. Tefft went even further:

“Peter Tefft, my son, is not welcome at our family gatherings any
longer. I pray my prodigal son will renounce his hateful beliefs
and return home. Then and only then will I lay out the feast.”

Cole White

Torch bearing white supremacist Cole White lost his job at Top Dog, a Berkeley, California restaurant. Top Dog management posted this sign outside the restaurant:

“Effective Saturday 12th August, Cole White no longer works
at Top Dog.” The actions of those in Charlottesville are not
supported by Top Dog. We believe in individual freedom and
voluntary association for everyone.”

The Daily Stormer

The Daily Stormer is a neo-Nazi website. After the rally, Daily Stormer founder Andrew Anglin posted an article disparaging rally murder victim Heather Heyer:

“drain on society”

“the definition of uselessness”

“Most people are glad she is dead.”

GoDaddy gave The Daily Stormer 24 hours to find another web host. Google rejected The Daily Stormer as well, as did a Russian web host, as did DreamHost.

Russian web host Ru-Center suspended Daily Stormer after an official government inquiry. Russia’s government media regulator, Roskomnadzor, wrote Ru-Center asking the company to:

“to look into [the] possibility of register suspension due to
extremist content of this domain.”

Social media companies Facebook and Reddit banned far right extremist groups and removed links to pages posted by far right extremists. Facebook removed all links to The Daily Stormer post attacking the Charlottesville rally murder victim, Heather Heyer.
