The anti- Trump hooligans just received bad news, the U.S. Department of Justice is leading an investigation against those hooligans who caused damage at the time of Trump’s inauguration.
The major web hosting company DreamHost said that a search warrant was issued for information concerning the left website “DisruptJ20.org.”
The name is self-explanatory, “J20” means January 20, the day of Trump’s inauguration. The website purpose was to gather hooligans to “disrupt” the much-respected handover ceremony.
“DreamHost, like many online service providers, is approached by law enforcement regularly to provide information about customers who may be the subject of criminal investigations,” the company stated.
The search warrants usually are just a standard procedure, but this one was quite different.
“The request from the DOJ demands that DreamHost hand over 1.3 million visitor IP addresses — in addition to contact information, email content, and photos of thousands of people — in an effort to determine who simply visited the website,” they said.
Surely the Department of Justice is looking through the data to find certain individuals who violated the law on the day Trump took office. Anyhow, they refused to show the search warrant.
“This is, in our opinion, a strong example of investigatory overreach and a clear abuse of government authority,” DreamHost explained.
Unfortunately, the company decided to protect those hooligans saying: “We intend to take whatever steps are necessary to support and shield these users from what is, in our view, a very unfocused search and an unlawful request for their personal information.”
But things are not that simple, the warrant is a legal document signed by a judge and released by a court. Maybe is an overreach to request information on all visitors using that website, but the company will be in legal trouble if the DOJ has a valid reason for asking them to disclose the information.
This kind of unfairness we see it all the time, I can assure you that the same company will gladly give out information on “alt-right” demonstrators. In fact, this unfairness is happening all over the internet.
Not long ago several conservative sites were booted by online service providers. For instance, the anti-immigration news site “VDare” had its PayPal account frozen with no explanation.
Also “The Daily Stomer” site was declined service by GoDaddy and was almost erased from Google.
Just to be clear, sites like “Stormer” should never be on the internet, but the point is that only conservative sites are the ones treated unfairly. And sites like “DisruptJ20” have all the right.
This site by refusing to provide the information need it, refuses justice to be served. By not letting the DOJ do its job properly, we are saying to those hooligans that they can do whatever they want and won’t be caught.
