Reddit Suspends Moderators of The_Donald Subreddit

The_Donald has been an online hub for Trump supporters for years.

Reddit has suspended a number of moderators from the ‘the-donald’ subreddit, claiming that the moderators of the forum were violating Reddit’s rules on approved content.

An employee of the tech company posted an announcement of the purge within the online community. Reddit will now hand-pick a group approved and sanitized new moderators, who are likely to do the left-wing tech company’s job of censoring and silencing pro-Trump content for them.

In Reddit’s announcement of their authoritarian purge, they make no mention of exactly what site policies the banned mods transgressed, or who the supposed offenders even were.

They’ve cleverly banned any of the new potential mods from consideration if they’ve stacked up more than 500 points of ‘karma’ in other quarantined subreddits. Such a restriction boxes out frequent users of the ‘undesirable’ conservative and right-wing subreddits the censors are trying to quietly clean off of their platform.

The thought police had already issued a ‘quarantine’ on The Donald in 2019, treating an online organic community of Donald Trump supporters as if they were a lethal disease. The_donald was one of the earliest major online communities for Trump supporters, serving as a basecamp for the proliferation of memes and pro-Trump online content.

r/The_Donald’s moderators seem to have reached a boiling point over Reddit’s application of authoritarian censorship techniques within their online community. They’re promoting a re-imagined version of the Donald, totally unaffiliated with the liberal San Francisco tech company. Thedonald.win retains much of the features and format of Reddit’s the_donald, without the presence of online liberal authoritarians.

It looks as if the days of free speech on Reddit, a platform that once considered itself a home for open expression, are coming to a sad, pathetic, censorious end.

Facebook Censors Project Veritas Video, Keeping Coronavirus Hysteria in High Gear

Big Brother is ramping up due to coronavirus.

Published

on

Facebook is reportedly throwing a Project Veritas video off of their monolithic social media platform because the video contains information about coronavirus that is unapproved by the political and media establishment.

CNN reporter Oliver Darcy reported that Facebook would be removing the Veritas video from their platform because of nebulous and unspecified policy violations. Veritas founder James O’Keefe blamed Darcy for allegedly being a snitch and attempting to get his video removed from social media platforms.

O’Keefe also blasted New York Times reporter Andrew Jacobs for his moral preening in criticizing his coronavirus reporting.

The controversial video published by Veritas shows O’Keefe talking with boots on the ground at coronavirus testing sites. He talked to Army personnel and health care workers who claimed the pandemic is not as bad as the media and government officials are purporting it to be.

Certain transcripts from the Veritas video can be seen here:

James O’Keefe: “What about the situation itself. Is it as bad as–the media is saying? The whole pandemic?”
New York Army National Guardsman: “Oh no. It’s the flu!”
O’Keefe: “That’s all it is?”
Guardsman: “It’s the flu.”

O’Keefe: “Is it as bad as they’re saying, this pandemic? Everyone’s freaking out. Is it bad, is it overblown by the media, what is it like?”
Medical worker: “Is it what?”
O’Keefe: “Is the media accurately reporting or is it as bad as people are saying?”
Medical worker: “No.”
O’Keefe: “It’s not as bad as the—”
Medical worker: “It’s precautionary.”
O’Keefe: “The media is making it out bigger?”
Medical worker: “Yes.”

O’Keefe’s video has garnered controversy because it goes against the narrative of fear and hysteria that has been pushed by the fake news media, government bureaucrats and official expert class.

“The rollout of our findings does not endorse COVID-19 behavior one way or another, nor do we encourage others. Our goal is to inform the public and allow the public to make judgments on the issues,” O’Keefe said. “Emotionally driven, knee-jerk reactions journalists are the last thing the public should be subjected to in a time of crisis.”

“I realize this will probably upset some, but Project Veritas goes to the front lines to get unfiltered, raw information, to the public. We’re not here to project a narrative or even to draw a conclusion—we don’t even know who the villains are, if any,” O’Keefe added.

Despite Facebook’s reported censorship of the Veritas video, there are no plans for Twitter and YouTube to remove the content from their platforms at the present time.
