Antifa.com Redirects You to Whitehouse.gov–at Least It Is Today
It was brought to our attention by some of our Newstalk Facebook friends...
Usually when information like this is passed along, we're initially skeptical. OK, rrrrriiiight...but in this case, it worked.
We tried it 3 times in a row and it worked. We're not the only ones who noticed this...WTRF News in D.C. also picked up on it.
According to several sources, it is not clear who owns the domain name "Antifa.com."
We tried it with both upper and lower case "A" in antifa, and both link to the White House. Previously antifa.com linked you to Joe Biden's campaign website, late last summer and fall.
It also briefly re-directed to Kamala Harris' campaign site. However, before you get too concerned, consider this.
A few brief bits of research show that anyone who owns a domain name can link, or redirect it to another one of their choice, and there's nothing the 'second' site can do about it. If we wanted to, we could re-direct "newstalk870.am" to whitehouse.gov as long as we own the newstalk domain name. In doing so, however, it renders the domain that's being redirected useless as it's OWN website.
So, the end result is, find who owns the domain "antifa.com" and you will know who is redirecting.
We ran antifa.com through the website namecheap.com, who can look up and find who owns various domain names. This is what we found:
Domain Name: antifa.com
Updated Date: 2020-08-14T19:04:21Z
Creation Date: 2002-04-24T12:35:11Z
Registry Expiry Date: 2021-04-24T12:35:10Z
Apparently the registry expires in April, so if you wanted you could go to namecheap.com and make an offer on it. It would appear whoever owns antifa.com, based upon these redirects, appears to be on the conservative or non-Joe Biden supporter side.
