The Infowars website went offline on Saturday afternoon.
While it appeared to be a DDOS attack, liberal media have been lobbying Infowars basic infrastructure providers to shut them down — so many fans of the website immediately assumed the worst.
Infowars political commentator Paul Joseph Watson told the Gateway Pundit that they are currently investigating the cause and who is behind it.
Just before it went offline, the website received a large spike in fake traffic, likely indicating a DDOS attack — which is when a website is flooded with requests so it overloads.
