Gab goes offline after refusing to pay hackers, accuses Biden admin & ‘oligarch tyrants’ of wanting to shut them down

The social media site Gab blamed “oligarch tyrants” who keep the US “under occupation” for being forced offline, after they refused to pay a ransom in Bitcoin to a hacker who had pilfered gigabytes of user data through an exploit.

“We took the site down to investigate a security breach,” Gab announced on Monday afternoon via their Twitter account. Users trying to log into Gab were greeted with an “internal error” message and told to try again. 

“Banks are banning us. Hackers are attacking us. Journalists are libeling us. Why?” Gab tweeted, calling the US “a totally subverted nation under the occupation of a handful of oligarch tyrants who use their power to destroy dissenters.”

Torba is a fool who spends more time arguing with people on twitter using Gab’s (verified, despite being a wrongthink hive, how convenient) twitter account than he does working on his own website. Which is a barely functioning mess. Sometimes people aren’t feds, they’re just blockheads.

It is just a matter of time before all Trump supporters will be banned from everything. Banks, social media, employment, everything. That will be when the fecal material hits the rotating device.

Well X-Beast, way too many of them will be surprised when all of the above have been happening for years. Oh but that happened to the other guy.
Soon we’ll discover the brutal justice system we’ve already build will be used against us too. “Oh that’s just the bad guys. Brutal sadism is fine by me.”
Sure buddy. Nothing could possibly go wrong with building up the largest incarceration rate of any country that keeps track. There’s no way the left will ever control the institutions and decide that you’re the bad guy now.
Some things you have to find out the hard way. I sure did.

My husband’s FICO “credit score” has apparently been erased recently — he is now unable to get a second credit card.
His crimes?
Conservative white male
Registered “R” in Virginia; campaign donor
Active CCL holder for decades
Previous FFL professional until Obama-era ATF hassled so much we closed down the corporation
Previous “credit score” of 802
No outstanding debt; only 1 current credit card in use with $0 balance owed (always paying outstanding charges in-full each month)
Note: Since this is new-to-us, we are currently in the investigating phase w/ Experian because they were the reporting agency. Neither of us have ever filed bankruptcy, been ‘late’, always paid loans in full (mortgages), and have upper middle-class income-stream through retirement planning.
If you do not believe this can happen to you, you are not paying attention to what’s going on. Big banks are weaponizing the financial system.
