Ravelry, a popular social media platform for knitters and crafters, says it will be banning project ideas, patterns and forum posts that express support for President Trump and the Trump administration, while likening such support to “open white supremacy.”
“We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy,” reads a message posted to the knitting community’s website. “Support of the Trump administration is undeniably support for white supremacy.”
Ravelry also said Trump supporters would not be prohibited from using the platform, only that they shout not “talk about it here.”
“We are definitely not banning conservative politics. Hate groups and intolerance are different from other types of political positions,” the post reads.

I'm no Trump supporter but that's probably the stupidest thing I've read this week.
Knitting and politics obviously don't mix.

I am a member there and they have a forum, so I can only think that some members were using their platform for their political agenda.
If you like swastika patterns go somewhere else.
