    The alt-right is having a bad week. Apple, Facebook, Spotify, and YouTube all removed Alex Jones’ Infowars podcasts and pages from their various platforms. Now, Microsoft has put Gab.ai—a Twitter alternative popular with America’s political fringe—on notice.

    Microsoft told the service—which is largely an alt-right cesspool of people who have already been banned from Twitter—that it must remove hate speech that incites violence or lose access to Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing service, which hosts the platform.

    Microsoft pointed to two posts from Gab user Patrick Little, one that calls for the “complete eradication of all Jews” and the other which calls for their death by torture: “After an initial review, we have concluded that this content incites violence, is not protected by the First Amendment, and violates Microsoft Azure’s acceptable use policy,” Microsoft spokesperson told Motherboard. “Microsoft notified Gab.ai of this substantial concern and advised that it remove this content or respond to Microsoft within 48 hours, or potentially risk suspension of its service on Azure.”

    Little is a Republican Senate candidate from California who the party found so vile it kicked him out of its convention in May. Since then, he’s been stumping across the country, spreading his anti-semitic message via public rallies and Friends themed robo-calls. He has used Gab to call for the destruction of Holocaust memorials, and far worse.

    Gab founder Andrew Torba posted a screenshot of a notice he got from Microsoft that says "continued violation of the Microsoft Azure Acceptable Use Policy may result in the suspension of your deployments." Torba posted a message on Gab asking Little if he would voluntarily delete the posts, but has not taken any action against him or his posts yet; Gab paints itself as a "free speech" alternative to Twitter. Torba said he would not be giving interviews on the subject.

    Microsoft, for its part, was unequivocal about the posts needing to come down:

    “We believe we have an important responsibility to ensure that our services are not abused by people and groups seeking to incite violence against others,” Microsoft said. “Our policies rightly prohibit this type of content, and we expect Gab.ai to abide by these policies if it wishes to use our service. Gab.ai is of course free to choose otherwise and work with another cloud service provider or host this content itself. If it wishes to make that choice, we will provide it with a reasonable amount of time, in this instance longer than 48 hours, to transition its content elsewhere before its access to Azure is terminated. But we will stand by our policy and insist that Gab.ai remove what is unlawful and hateful content.”

  2. Why is calling for the eradication of a religion a bad thing? I mean, atheists do it all the time when it comes to Christianity... why should Jews and Muslims get special treatment?

  5. I think Microsoft is doing it on purpose because they feel there hasen't been enough "kill all the Jews" posts of late. They're feeling a bit left out, what with Muslims, minorities and virtue signalers getting all their much craved pity pats, which is why they suddenly felt the need to invoke the Streisand Effect in such a blatantly obvious manner.

  10. Wait, why is gab.ai, a site that is trying to ensure free speech no matter what, doing something stupid like being hosted by a large corporation that could easily impede that goal? I mean if you're going to run a site that will be filled to the brim with controversy, the last thing you want to do is tie yourself to a corporation that's part of the very thing you're trying to avoid.

  12. They've been through several hosts before IIRC, but something tells me they wanted whoever had the best deal and could handle the load a social media site requires. At the same time, due to the current climate of the internet, if your host, domain registrar, or DNS server decides to pull hosting, your site goes down and you have to scramble to find a new provider. Gab is claiming they now want money to build their own hosting setup to try to get around the centralization, but who knows where they'll end up with the money.

    It also leads to one of the big issues with trying to "start your own" social media site: Dealing with content your host might not like, especially if it's a setup to get your site taken down like the 8chan child porn sting attempt.

    It's a website being hosted on Microsoft's own services. Lately the thing with a lot of left wing activists is to find out whoever hosts sites they hate and harass their hosts/registrars/etc. to try to get them pulled.

  15. How is calling for the complete eradication of Jews/mass torture of Jews/destruction of Holocaust memorials a violation of the 1st Amendment? Oh wait, it's not.

  16. I demand Microsoft delete the Jews.

    You know "alt-right" doesn't mean anything anymore. Until about two years ago it was a label proud and loud white supremacists and white nationalists used to describe themselves. Hillary Clinton redefined it in a campaign speech to mean "the very worst the right has to offer, and oh yeah, also everyone who supports right-leaning candidates who aren't totally establishment because those two categorizes are exactly the same" and overnight every asshole in the world adopted the new definition.

    It's just become another slur for the non-"woke," a way to signal that someone else is in your sociopolitical out-group. Hard to take people seriously who use it without irony.
