This is ridiculous. This has been a sub since 2015 and has been in the sights of those who oppose our president since.

Link



Reddit is banning one of its most notorious communities today, the subreddit—or forum—dedicated to discussion of President Donald Trump.

The ban comes after years of controversy around r/The_Donald and its promotion of racism, anti-Semitism, conspiracy theories, and violent memes starring a cartoon frog.


The silencing of the average person in the US is continuing.

I can still go out to r/iamatotalpieceof# and read about how BLM is great though and I shouldn't protest.

or here is another good one....

Racism does exist folks but it is not about skin color anymore. It is about your beliefs....


UPDATE - and it seems that he has always been suspended from TWITCH for 'hateful conduct'...

This is the new world.

Loreal is even taking "whitening, lightening" from their products because they deem it racist. Their own product!

Soon... I say this in jest but nervously so... Being white will be a criminal act before long.

Liberals can't allow anyone with an opposing viewpoint to speak. They know they will lose. Only option is to ban it all.

Reddit has an angry mob of progressives just waiting to destroy any conservative on reddit. All it took was one mess up and they'd be banned.

Kind of ironic a subreddit famous for censoring and banning people gets, you know, censored and banned.

You are what you eat.

reddit sucks anyway for the most part, but you should point out that they are banning over 2000 forums they deem to endorse hate speech. Link to slashdot story here

Ironically I feel the BLM movement promotes hate and supremacy but I doubt they will be removing those forums.

So I hate the Donald, like really don't like him, he is a total idiot who is unfit to be president.

BUT....

This is just getting messed up, even me, a uber liberal with some pretty progressive views looks at stuff like this and has to say its going too far. People should be aloud to voice opinions, hell, I want to argue with you about your opinion but I can't do that if they're just de-platforming anyone who says something that a minority of offended morons complain about so much that the opinion is just deleted.

If someone is being racist, then call them out, debate them, challenge them, shutting them up changes nothing. I believe racism stems from ignorance, to combat it you need to educate the racists over time you need to expose their views, almost humiliate them by letting them show the world what they are. Shutting them only only makes them more extreme, it doesn't fix the problem its just hides it, drives it underground where I would argue its more dangerous.

It pushes people to the corners of the web that are further to the right, it pushes them to the dangerous racists, the morons prepping fo race war and all that crap.

Liberals need to stop hitting the delate button on any opinion they don't like and start engaging and debating.

Seems like it has been dead silent on that topic. I havent heard anything new but this should probably be in a thread of its own.

I don’t agree with a lot that you write on ATS and that’s fine. I am sure you don’t agree with much that I have said in my short time here ( I lurked for well over a decade).

What you wrote above I do agree with and thanks!

I have a lot of left leaning friends. They are easy to be friends with because we give each other the respect deserved for our differing opinions and understand that we have a right to differ.

If we all had the same maturity that you displayed in your post the world would be in a lot better shape right now.

Star for you

Reddit "we need to hire a black person, who cares about finding the best person for the job". The Donald was dead for months now, members of that subreddit made a look alike reddit to get away from the censorship. thedonald.win...

Reddit continues to allows hate and racism towards white people all over the place. They allow a subreddit that won't allow you to post unless your skin is the right color.

Not that I like it but Reddit's users are the anti ATS. Just on a larger scale.
Not a fan that any speech is combed over and censored. We should all have a platform and accept the consequences for it. Looking at you Facebook and most of social media (Our downfall).
If it's online it's in history forever.
Make informed decisions for yourself.

That was just stupid.

I am quitting my job as a white man because I believe a black man should do it.

Its racist on so many levels.

firstly you're being racist in saying only a black man can do my job and a white man can't.

Secondly you're saying "you only managed to get this job because your black"

Its racist whatever way you look at it.

Trump owns entire media platforms. He isn't being silenced, just opposed.

Man, have you see some of the stuff that gets posted (and not actioned) in that sub?

They probably should have quarantined it and left it, but its not really a very good sub for people who aren't bigots.
