Reddit announced on Monday that it is shutting down a forum dedicated to President Trump's most ardent fans, saying it repeatedly violates the online platform's rules against harassment, hate speech and content manipulation.

The community forum, known as a subreddit, was called The_Donald and had nearly 800,000 users. Trump himself has been known to share memes that posted to The_Donald and other parts of Reddit.

Long a magnet for conspiracy theories and sharp attacks on the president's critics, The_Donald has faced backlash before. Reddit has taken action over content encouraging violence and had threatened to block the subreddit completely if the moderators — who are volunteers — did not take down the abusive material.

Now, officials at Reddit have determined that the forum where die-hard Trump fans congregate online cannot police itself.
Finally. Enough already.

OMG, that sounds like something from The Onion. And yet... it’s not. That’s the POTUS and his faithful minions.

The one that really sounds like The Onion is Twitch suspending Trump's account. Yes, the Trump campaign has an account on Twitch. Twitch, a streaming platform for video game lovers.

https://techcrunch.com/2020/06/29/trump ... hCrunch%29
Twitch confirmed today that it has temporarily suspended the president’s account. “Hateful conduct is not allowed on Twitch,” a spokesperson for the streaming giant told TechCrunch. “In line with our policies, President Trump’s channel has been issued a temporary suspension from Twitch for comments made on stream, and the offending content has been removed.”
Trump's account, manned by Trump's account was targeting his fans who play video games all day. They wrote this bizarre message:
Hey, it’s 1:00 o’clock in the morning and a very tough, I’ve used the word on occasion, hombre, a very tough hombre is breaking into the window of a young woman whose husband is away as a traveling salesman or whatever he may do. And you call 911 and they say, “I’m sorry, this number’s no longer working.” By the way, you have many cases like that, many, many, many. Whether it’s a young woman, an old woman, a young man or an old man and you’re sleeping.

Normally I would approve but the reason r/the_donald was shut down was because of r/watchredditdie and they are terrible people who have lied... doxed... and even posted child porn just to shut down a sub they disagreed with

Oops.. I meant r/againsthatesubreddits they had a hand in shutting down the Donald. r/watchredditdie is trying to shut down any subreddit that is posting about it.

If this was the only social media site that has an issue with Trump and his fans I might believe they were an innocent party destroyed by others but the hate, conspiracy theories, and lies are pretty familiar and consistent with Trumps base and the groups that follow him. If another group was able to tip them over that line that finally got the group banned, good for them.

Did this group also get the other groups banned?

Can we do this to the hating liberals and protestors?
No dream is too big. No challenge is too great. Nothing we want for our future is beyond our reach.

They have had a hand in getting thousands of subreddits quarantined or banned. They’re goal has been to shut down every sub they either don’t agree with or are offended by and they have had a hand in Reddit deciding to make new rules. Reddit was flooded with complaints and they can’t advertise on certain subreddits so between money and complaints by members and their alts reddit completely changed their rules. It’s great the Donald was shut down since it was nothing but a cesspool but others were shut down arbitrarily and now they have to appeal their case in hopes reddit will actually listen. That’s unlikely since Reddit has a history of choosing money and the side of those who cry the loudest. The site wide rule changes are not something that I agree with.

It’s already happening with Reddit’s sitewide rule changes and people crying about other subreddits demanding change. r/watchredditdie are revenge spam reporting to get subs shut down who are happy that the_donald was shut down while they are also crying about freedom of speech and r/againstdegeneratesubs is the alt right version of r/againsthatesubs. Reddit isn’t changing their rules for no reason the subs are twisting their arms and flooding them with reports. This has been going on since at least 2011 when r/jailbait was shut down after mass reporting it’s just gotten more popular lately to shut down subs people don’t agree with. That’s why some subs... mostly the right... have been going to ruqqus.com where they allow you to post pretty much anything.

the left is censoring everyone on the right at the moment, all over Youtube, twitch and reddit. everyone from reddit is just going to 4chan now and will probably end up radicalized.

And you just called BLM “terrorists” based on the fact that they made unreasonable demands. So how are you any different? Or do you only support a right for hate mongering when you happen to agree with it?
