You must be invited to visit this community
At 8:41pm ET on 5/19/2017, Reddit Admins removed three The_Donald mods without warning. This was punishment for our refusal to comply to a special set of rules that were imposed only on this subreddit and prevented our members from fully enjoying reddit or our mods from defending users against harassment.
We’ve temporarily gone dark in a show of strength against these unfair restrictions. Check back at 9 PM EST tomorrow for an announcement.
The moderators of this subreddit have set it to private. You must be a moderator or approved submitter to visit.
This is a subreddit for every moderator of The_Donald to discuss and ask questions if they need anything. — We will use this to update you all on recent happenings, so please check here every so often.
We have been closed for just over 12 hours. Look at /all. It’s covered in posts obsessing about us. The anti-Trump circle-jerk is stronger than ever, in a real 1984 type of way. We are the only place on Reddit that offers an alternative viewpoint. Even if you are against our president, you must see how valuable that is. Discourse is what makes this country great. We cannot cede all of Reddit to the bots spamming on one side of the conversation.
If you’re like me, you’re having withdrawals from the dankest place on the internet. We were planning to stay dark in protest longer but we’re opening back up early because Seth Rich’s killers are still not found. We are opening back up for him. No one is willing to talk about this, besides us.
As you all know, our top mod, u/ohsnapyougotserved, was banned and demodded by Reddit. We also lost two other fantastic mods. This will not deter us from chasing after our goal of equal treatment. That being said, we are NOT losing this community. That’s what leftists want.
Where do we go from here? We continue to support President Trump, create and promote the spiciest memes known to man, and trigger the fuck out of liberals. We fight the deep state.
It’s what we do best.
Sorry about the lack of posts lately…I have been just a little bit burned out, feeling just a little bit hopeless.
And, then a dear friend and mentor passes away…
This is what Val, a dear and near friend, has written on Andre Drouin’s passing:
A mighty warrior has fallen
André Drouin, a true Canadian hero, has died.
André attended the Collège Militaire Royal de Saint-Jean, Université de Sherbrooke and École Polytechnique de Montréal, where he received a degree in electrical engineering. He also served in the Royal Canadian Navy. Did his educational and military background prepare him for a future dedicated to fighting for the values and liberty of our country? Or was it the time spent in Saudi Arabia where André came to understand firsthand the effects of Sharia law on society. It was likely in these formative years that the seeds of his future activism – and celebrity – were planted.
André sprang into prominence in 2007 when he authored the controversial Hérouxville Standards that sparked national and international debate over the principle of providing reasonable accommodations for cultural and religious diversity.
The ‘Code of Conduct’ that he authored spelled out standards for newcomers to his community. It was a short pamphlet that, by listing cultural norms that were to be accepted as well as behaviours that were unacceptable, pointedly illustrated how multiculturalism is a tool that will lead to the destruction of a country, and why religious accommodation is something we must keep away from. It warned immigrants who wanted to settle in this 98 percent French-speaking, rural community of 1,300 that there would be no religious face coverings, no stoning or burning of women, and that men and women could swim together in the local pool. This declaration was purposely exaggerated to get attention. Of course nobody anticipated “stoning” people which is a crime but André was making the point that what begins with accommodation of the niqab can end in sharia law. He knew what he was doing. He wanted to make a big splash to wake people up and he did.
The controversial document drew national and international media attention because of its perceived eccentricity and alleged lack of inclusiveness toward certain minorities. The Hérouxville declaration was condemned by many, including in Quebec, as heavy-handed and even xenophobic. However, despite the opprobrium of the media and the elites, André received tens of thousands of supportive emails from people in Canada and throughout the world.
He spent the intervening years developing a worldwide network to communicate and exchange views about immigration, religious practices he regarded as incompatible with western values, and multiculturalism. He believed that because of multiculturalism, Canada had lost her bearings. Every day he sent emails in French and English to about 100,000 correspondents. They, in turn, re-sent his missives across their own networks, spanning the globe. André worked closely with Anglophones, Francophones, Jews, Christians, Muslims and atheists and was not bigoted in any way. It was Islam and its tenets he grappled with.
With his Hérouxville declaration, he brought the issue to the attention of many, including those who did not want to hear, which unfortunately still includes many of our leaders. He kept many of us well-informed with his email blasts – a veritable clearinghouse of information! And even as the “useful idiots” in the House of Commons just passed Motion M-103, Canadians with awareness are coming together to join in the fight to retain the freedoms that the West struggled so hard to achieve and that we can no longer take for granted. Many of us know that the battle has just begun.
On a personal level, André stood beside me from the beginning of establishing ACT! For Canada. He encouraged me; he mentored me; he supported me; he gave me advice. He always made me feel that our work was significant and important in this battle. So many times when I felt disheartened and discouraged and wanted to give up, I would think of André and his heroism with Hérouxville and how he never backed down and it gave me courage and inspiration. As well, I was always taken by his love of God, country, community, family and friends. His caring and gracious character made a profound impact on my life and I will carry those memories with me always.
André was an officer and a gentleman. He was a great Quebec nationalist and a great Canadian patriot. Rest in peace, dear friend. We say goodbye to this Canadian icon – recognized as a leader by those of us in the struggle to keep our country from going down the dark path of Islamization.
André died peacefully on Sunday, April 2nd. He is survived by his loving wife, Luce Rivard, and three children, Sébastien, Carl-Étienne and Catherine. A private burial was held.
“The highest tribute to the dead is not grief, but gratitude.”
April 5, 2017
Indeed, I am deeply grateful to Andre for all his help, support, and bravery in standing up for Canada and Canadian values that we all cherish – and will fight to the death to protect!
