LifeSiteNews Given the Gab Treatment

Anything to the right of center — and then, anything to the right of all the way left — will eventually find its way into the crosshairs. Earlier this month, Twitter briefly shut down the mainstream Christian prolife site LifeSiteNews, but backed down for the time being due to backlash. Then, last Saturday,

LifeSite just received an email at 8:30 p.m. EST from our web-hosting company alerting us that they will be taking our website down within 12 hours, if not sooner. …

We received absolutely no forewarning whatsoever about this decision.

The pretext:

The company told LifeSite it is acting in response to a months-long campaign of complaints against us by Adam Flanders. Flanders is a convicted sex abuser and homosexual activist who is angered over our reports exposing him and his past. As LifeSite recently reported, he has already succeeded in taking down other pro-family websites by targeting their server companies.

Flanders’ latest complaint is focused on the absurd allegation that LifeSite “has been implicated in a violent hate crime against a gay man and Catholic church,” and that we “instigated property damage and a physical assault.”

Libertarian Twitter alternative Gab is still down as a result of its webhost pulling the rug out from under it in the immediate aftermath of the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, for which Gab was absurdly blamed.

For now, LifeSite is still up. An update:

Our web developer was up all night implementing temporary measures to keep our site online even if our current web-hosting company followed through on its threat to shut down our services. We are extremely grateful for his hard work on a Saturday night. However, this is only a temporary solution. We are currently looking for a web-hosting company that will not cave to threats of this kind.

Good luck. Such companies will be increasingly difficult to find as they in turn are bullied by intolerant liberals.

The near future looks like a cross between “It’s a Good Life” and the French Revolution. Instead of sending you to the guillotine, high-handed Jacobins can just wish you into the cornfield by taking you offline so that you no longer exist.

On a tip from ABC of the ANC.
