Skip to comments.Reddit bans pro-Trump forum The_Donald and other communities that promote hate
Posted on 06/29/2020 12:53:50 PM PDT by ransomnote
On Monday, the social networking site said subreddits -- or forums -- and users that promote hate based on "identity or vulnerability" will be banned. As part of the policy change, Reddit is initially banning about 2,000 subreddits, including "The_Donald," a popular community supportive of President Donald Trump, where users often shared racist, misogynistic, homophobic and conspiracy content.
Reddit said "The_Donald" forum has consistently broken its rules, antagonized other communities, and the moderators have refused to meet Reddit's "most basic expectations." The company also said it has given the community warnings and changed its moderators. In 2019, it "quarantined" the forum, meaning people visiting the subreddit would see a warning message before accessing it and the forum's posts would not appear in search.
"All communities on Reddit must abide by our content policy in good faith. We banned r/The_Donald because it has not done so, despite every opportunity," Reddit said on Monday.
The decision to ban "The_Donald" comes at a time when social media platforms are taking stronger stances against controversial content posted by Trump, or in the case of Reddit, by his apparent supporters. Twitter has increasingly been flagging Trump's tweets, Snapchat said it would no longer promote Trump's account on its platform and Twitch said Monday it would suspend an account belonging to the Trump campaign.

Imagine how the scumbags at CNN report this censorship with a straight face.
Didn’t do that 6 months ago I thought.
And didn’t “The Donald” go and create their own independent web site?
PROmote hate.............. Not sure about that. Oh, as THEY see it. In that case, anything Trump or anyone that supports him says is hateful. Now I get it.
The Donald has been inactive on reddit for seven months. They moved to TheDonald.win
They just cracked the top 1000 websites in the world.
I would encourage everyone here to create an account and join the party. The spicy memes are not subject to reddit Chicom censorship there.
Old news, most of people in subreddit moved on to greener pastures
I visited The_Donald a couple of weeks ago. It looked like nobody had posted there for weeks. The new forum is
/r/The_Donald has been dormant for 4 months
/r/hottiesfortrump/ is still there. Some NSFW stuff there.
The 100 Most Important Online Publishers
From its flagship search site to YouTube, Gmail, Blogger, Google Maps, Google Docs and so much more, Google continues to capture eyeballs across the web.
Reaching an all-time u.s. high of 27 million visitors in May, according to comScore, twitter.com was up 13 percent over a year earlier. And, comScore notes, 85-90 percent of Twitter users visit the site each month.
Wait a minute. Don’t those two claim they are not publishers and can censor anything they want?
First meme I see is a beaut!
Yep. Milo, Alex Jones were a test run.
The refugees started a new place and it is has skyrocketing readership. Head over to https://thedonald.win/
Have they ever banned The_obama or The_Hillary or The_Pelosi?
They are laughing at the republicans empty threats of holding them accountable. That risk is negligable. The benefit of ignoring it is that they can go full force propagandists for the DNC and if Trump loses they will never have anything to fear from the government ever again. They will be the new state sanctioned propagandists and in love with the privileged.
So basically, get over the idea that there is a 1st Amendment. Anything you say that I don;t like, I can just say HATE SPEECH. This is the NEW LEFT.
