    Reddit Permanently Bans Pro-Trump Community ‘The_Donald’

    Reddit announced on Monday that it has permanently blacklisted the pro-Donald Trump community “The_Donald.”

    Reddit CEO Steve Huffman announced on Monday that the company has banned “The_Donald,” which had at one point over 790,000 subscribers, over allegedly failing to meet “basic expectations” regarding content moderation.

    Huffman said that the crackdown was part of “closing the gap between our values and our policies to explicitly address hate.”

    “All communities on Reddit must abide by our content policy in good faith,” Huffman wrote. “We banned r/The_Donald because it has not done so, despite every opportunity.”

    “To be clear, views across the political spectrum are allowed on Reddit — but all communities must work within our policies and do so in good faith, without exception,” Huffman claimed.

    Huffman’s decision to permanently ban the The_Donald follows Reddit “quarantining” the community, meaning that posts in the popular pro-Trump forum would not appear on the site’s front page making them less visible for those that do not subscribe to the community.

    I signed up to Reddit because of that forum, and I will leave Reddit over this. It was on restricted quarantine for 6 months anyways, shadow ban posts or not being able to post at all, Reddit going the way of Digg, deleted my phone app as well, good residence to bad rubbish. They are censoring everything right of center over there now.

    Reddit has taken a big step in the right direction today by implementing and truly enforcing their updated, more robust hate speech policy.

    There is no such thing as "hate speech." Show me the scientific instrument measuring hate, love, jealousy, etc.

    I got banned by both left and right-wing sites recently. Got banned from /r/police and godlikeproductions. LOL. My posts were fairly mild about police abuse and I was really surprised I got banned. I think in the past, even a few months ago, I would not have gotten banned, especially GLP. But people seem to be pretty defensive about saying anything bad about the police as of late.

    The last time I have ever been banned from anything was Hannity forums back in 2007 for discussing Ron Paul and here on a temp ban in early 2016. Never been banned from GLP or Reddit before despite posting or reading there for many years.

    Really sad to see people on the right being so easily played and totally disconnected from the way they were thinking about authoritarian policies - the police only just a few months ago.

    Hardcore Pornography is just fine to these people

    But free speech is not.

    Think about that.

    Considering how Biden is not human, it's impossible for him to feel empathy.

    Think about that.
    Whatever its hardcore Pornography or their favorite "paid porn and extreme INC porn " is also fine to. But apparently fictional drawings of characters is problematic for them in their own mind. And yeah free speech and freedom of creativity is what they dont like to see.

    They see any dissent as meaning that you are on the "other side" and are therefore a troll

    Gender Critical went too. Reddits nailing their colours to the mast.
    In New Zealand:
    The Coastguard is a Charity
    Air Traffic Control is a private company run on user fees
    The DMV is a private non-profit
    Rescue helicopters and ambulances are operated by charities and are plastered with corporate logos
    The agriculture industry has zero subsidies
    5% of the national vote, gets you 5 seats in Parliament
    A tax return has 4 fields
    Business licenses aren't even a thing nor are capital gains taxes
    Constitutional right to refuse any type of medical care

    Everything eventually gets co-opted. Why? Because most people can't resist having freshly printed money thrown at them by the co-opters. Trillions of dollars in Fed bux printed up since 2008 has bought up practically every website of any mainstream significance, whether explicitly via legal purchase or via buying the allegiance of the site operator.

    The entire internet is the domain of paid shills and bots. If you don't know this by now....

    Israel, under control of the Crown and, ultimately, the Vatican, own the USA. If you don't know this by now....

    Talk to people about liberty. You won't find it on websites, you won't find it in politicians.

    But now you can't talk to people because of "social distancing"....brought to you by shills and politicians.
