What went a step too far for the far-right wing website that used to have a “Black Crime” tag, has asserted that young Muslims living in the West are a “ticking time bomb,” falsely claimed a 1,000-man Muslim mob had set fire to the oldest church in Germany, and proclaimed two weeks after Dylann Roof committed a massacre in a black church that “the Confederate flag proclaims a glorious heritage?”
It appeared to be this one, helpfully cached on archive.org:
The website did not offer any further explanation for the deletion, and the tweet announcing the move appeared to be the only time the site had publicized such an editorial decision on the platform.
