Gab has been growing in prominence in the past few months after the banning of a number of prominent users, including Big League Politics contributor Laura Loomer, who now has a Gab account.

The reason for Gab’s growing prominence is their absolutist free speech policy. With very few exceptions, you have the right to say whatever you want on the platform without fear of being suspended.

Gab also has safeguards against your privacy, allowing you to control your data on the platform. And unlike Twitter, they will not comply with anti-free speech demands for user data from foreign governments.

If President Trump were to leave Twitter, and instead use a service like Gab, it would be devastating for big tech.

Entire news cycles are based on Trump’s Twitter, with it becoming his messaging platform of choice.

When he has an announcement to make, he can make it directly on Twitter, without having to go through the filter of the mainstream media.

But with many of his most loyal supporters being thrown off the site, it doesn’t make much sense for him to stay. Gab is a website that will welcome both Trump, and his most loyal supporters with open arms.

Speaking to Andrew Torba, who is the CEO of Gab, he praises Coulter as a national treasure, and mirrors her encouragement to President Trump.

“Ann Coulter is a national treasure who has supported free speech and Gab’s mission of defending it for all people for many years now,” Torba said. “If the President takes her advice and promotes Gab, the de facto market leader in alternative social networks, it would be a game changer for liberty online.”

Gab already appears to have an account reserved for the President, using the same @realDonaldTrump username, so it wouldn’t be a difficult switch.

That’s why Big League Politics is now on Gab, where you can follow us at @bigleaguepol, along with the author of this article, Luke Rohlfing, at @lukerohlfing.

Reddit Forced to Amend New Terms of Service After Carving Out Hate Speech Exemption Against Whites

Reddit was called on their anti-white TOS.

Published

Social media giant Reddit has been forced to amend their new terms of service after they were called out for their anti-white bias.

Quillette writer Colin Wright noted on Sunday that Reddit’s new terms of service seemed to create an exemption that would allow for white people to be readily discriminated against on the platform.

“While the rule on hate protects such groups,” the old terms read, referring to various whining victim groups, “it does not protect all groups or all forms of identity. For example, the rule does not protect groups of people who are in the majority or who promote such acts of hate.”

Even though white people are a global minority, they are demonized by so-called minorities in the few countries in which they do have a majority. It does not take much analysis to understand why the terms of service were written in this manner and which group they were referencing.

After they were called out for their anti-white policies, Reddit changed their terms of service yet again. They made the policy on hate speech more vague, and less explicit, but still allowing for whites to be demonized on their platform.

“While the rule on hate protects such groups, it does not protect those who promote attacks of hate or who try to hide their hate in bad faith claims of discrimination,” Reddit wrote in the new terms of service.

Big League Politics reported on how Reddit booted r/TheDonald off the platform earlier this week as they intensify their Orwellian crackdown against dissident voices:

The social media platform Reddit announced on Monday that they are banning r/TheDonald and many other prominent channels supposedly guilty of hate speech in a massive censorship crackdown.

In addition to r/TheDonald, Reddit will also be removing r/ChapoTrapHouse and over 2,000 other channels from their platform. Reddit is santizing their platform before this year’s U.S. general election, and they want to make sure information is as tightly controlled as possible. They are doing this supposedly at the behest of Black Lives Matter activists who complained that Reddit was not doing enough to censor the voices of their opposition.

“I have to admit that I’ve struggled with balancing my values as an American, and around free speech and free expression, with my values and the company’s values around common human decency,” Reddit CEO Steve Huffman said in a call with reporters.

Huffman claimed that users on r/TheDonald promoted content that they want to suppress, so the entire community must go.

“The community has consistently hosted and upvoted more rule-breaking content than average (Rule 1), antagonized us and other communities (Rules 2 and 8), and its mods have refused to meet our most basic expectations,” Huffman said.

The new terms of service for Reddit contains a great deal of gibberish that can be essentially used to toss all speech deemed offensive to the left-wing mob off the platform.

Reddit is engaged in the Big Tech conspiracy to suppress conservative thought in the run up to this year’s presidential election. They ought to lose their special government protections under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act until they consistently respect the American values of freedom of speech and open expression.
