White supremacists, white nationalists, and neo-Nazis (the AP is very clear on them not being the same thing, though we're still trying to figure out when each is appropriate) got a shot in the Hitler-saluting arm when the president of the United States referred to (some of) them as "very fine people."
Facebook has been taking down pages linked to hate groups in recent days. Questions about free speech and whether companies should police what customers and users say has always been a hard one, and the reason many hate-filled groups continue to persist on big platforms like Reddit.

In its first statement on the matter on Monday, Cloudflare tried to argue that pulling its services wouldn't remove the Daily Stormer from the internet, which is an annoying exercise in semantics.
The Daily Stormer's return via the Russian internet turned out to be short-lived.
After posting an article that claimed the site had been hacked - and that it was under threat of being deleted within 24 hours - the Daily Stormer's founder, Andrew Anglin, announced early Monday afternoon, "I've retaken control of the site". "We will find you, we promise", said a narrator in the video.
