Website: A white supremacist website called Radical Agenda has been dumped by GoDaddy for an anti-Semitic rant posted by one its contributors that called for the slaughter of Jews: “If you don’t let us dissent peacefully, then our only option is to murder you. To kill your children. To kill your whole families. There is only one thing absent free speech [sic] that we can do to express our dissent and that’s to slaughter you like dogs, and you’re gonna have it coming and your children will deserve to die.” (Source:

Charlottesville: Christopher Cantwell, who attended the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, is suing Antifa for framing him at the rally. Cantwell is currently facing up to 20 years in prison for attacking protestors with mace at the rally.
