If you thought Facebook and Twitter were bad, you have not spent much time on this one.

If you thought Twitter and Facebook were awash with antisemitism, you clearly have not spent much time on Gab.com, the favoured social media platform of the extreme-right and neo-Nazis.

Over two hours of research, the JC catalogued posts accusing Jews of carrying out the September 11 terror attacks — and one which alleged that Jewish people “are in a hurry to implement a final solution on all whites”.

The site gained popular attention in October, after it emerged that Robert Bowers, the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting suspect, was a user. Minutes before the worst atrocity against Jews in American history unfolded, a post appeared on his account that ended with the chilling words: “I’m going in”.

Mr Bowers has entered a plea of not guilty to federal charges and faces a jury trial.

The shooting triggered an outcry that led domain provider GoDaddy to suspend services Gab’s services. GoDaddy said it found “numerous instances” of content on the platform which “promotes and encourages violence against people”.
