Pat Condell: Hello Angry Losers

REDDIT: ALL YOUR SUBREDDITS ARE BELONG TO US….r/The_Donald has gone dark

Reddit used to be a really, really fun place.  From r/aww and r/eyebleach, where people shared pictures and videos of puppies and kittens and all else adorable to just about every specific hobby, show or interest group there is.  Need to identify a bug?  r/whatsthisbug.  Want to improve your make up skills?  r/makeupaddictions.
No matter how funny or macabre or obscure – if you can think of it, there is probably a subreddit for it.  If you have a problem, there is probably a subreddit support group for it.
And, like most things that intersect technology with culture, it is predominantly populated with young-ish people.  As in, people who instead of receiving a well-rounded education have instead been through 12+ years of Cultural Marxist indoctrination.  (For a full understanding of just how deep the rabbit hole goes, pleas listen to ‘Explaining Postmodernism’.  A few hours long, but well worth the listen.)
And then the 2016 election came…
Just as it had polarized the US (and world) opinion into Trump fans and ‘NeverTrumpers’, so reddit has become increasingly polarized.
(Full admission:  as a libertarian, I was not a Trump fan because he is a mercantilist.  However, given the choice between a crook and a murderer, I’ll take the crook, thank you very much.  Thus, I am a reluctant Trump supporter – with both eyes wide open as to who and what  he is.)
Refocusing:  just like the rest of society, reddit became deeply polarized when it came to the topic of Trump.  On a site dominated by Cultural Marxists and SJWs (those not interested in politics may outnumber redditors (people contributing to reddit), but they are largely irrelevant in this debate) – especially among the people who run reddit who are wholly in-line with the oppressive political correctness and speech codes and safe spaces, were very few places where one could express an opinion favourable of Donald Tump…without getting outright banned.
The – by far the major – place to do this was a subreddit called r/The_Donald.
It was a place where meme were born and weaponized autism proved and disproved claims by digging up deeply buried evidence.
It was also one of the most positive places on reddit – where people were happy, supported each other and celebrated patriotism (no matter what country they were from) and battled against globalism and the destruction of individual cultures.  That is all cultures – not just the ones popular with SJWs….
And yes, Donald Trump’s team regularly monitored this subreddit to take the pulse of what his support base was thinking, wanting, criticizing, etc.  There are rumours that, at times, Donald Trump himself would scan the posts there to get a first-hand knowledge, to remain in touch with his supporters.
Reddit itself was not happy about that.  Not at all.
If you are not familiar with how reddit works – the more votes a post gets, the more likely it is to get on the front page of r/all (where posts from ALL subreddits are shown.  Except, that is, The_Donald.  The admin people, least by Steve Huffman (username u/spez) first altered the voting algorithms – making votes given to The_Donald worth 1/10th or 1/100th (sorry – the link is no longer accessible…which is the problem I am writing about) of a vote on any other subreddit.
Then they took to other, more technical measures.
Shadowbanning, randomly unsubscribing members, not showing new posts (with a message ‘there does not seem to be anything here’)  [sorry if my phrasing is not 100% accurate – angry and cannot access the older files to verify/check], not showing up on r/all…they tried just about everything they could to make The_Donald invisible on reddit.  Some other subreddits would even permanently ban you if you had ever posted or commented on anything on r/The_Donald – no matter what it was you said.  Even just subscibing to it was a bannable offense on some subreddits – really.
Which did not discourage members of The_Donald.  As the saying goes, if they are trying to censor you – you must be doing something right!!!
And indeed, the redditors at r/The_Donald took it all in stride and derived positive energy from the negativity and venom cast at us.  It really was a very fun and positive place to go – one where people were not censored, but where any racism or misogyny or other prejudice was met with derision and ridicule, while humour and positive feedback were greatly appreciated.
NO MORE!!!!
Alerted by a friend, I tried to check r/The_Donald, only to receive this message:

You must be invited to visit this community

r/The_Donald

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 means no people subscribed to r/The_Donald can see the subreddit or access it, unless they have been specifically invited by the moderators.
Several related subreddits have also gone dark:
The_Donald_Mods
private r/The_Donald_Mods a community for 1 year
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.
posts
24 hours is a huge deal on a fast paced place like r/The_Donald, which has helped analyze heaps of documents from WikiLeaks to the murder of Seth  Conrad Rich for having leaked the DNC emails.
Something very huge – site-threatening – must have happened to precipitate a reaction as severe as this.
At this time, it is pointless to speculate as to who will win this battle for r/The_Donald:  the Mods or the Admins.  Unlike Steve Huffman, I know Aaron Swartz would have been on the side of r/The_Donald – had he not been suicided…
Regardless of appearances, end well, this will not….
UPDATE:

ANNOUNCEMENT: The Future of r/The_DonaldHIGH ENERGY (self.The_Donald)

submitted 58 minutes ago * by TretesteΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ[M]announcement

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.



Thomas Sowell: ‘liberal’ policy harms blacks

André Drouin: A mighty warrior has fallen

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:

André Drouin

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.”

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!

 

Dr. Jordan Peterson’s lecture in Ottawa, 11th of March, 2017 – with intro by Mrs. Tammy Peterson

Act! For Canada’s Ottawa chapter brought the iconic Dr. Jordan Peterson to speak at the main branch of the Ottawa Library.

And, luckily, we got Mrs. Tammy Peterson (a powerful intellect and personality in her own right) to give us a glimpse into how their lives have been altered since Dr. Peterson’s pro-free-speech rant went viral in 2016:

 

 

Q&A videos to come as they are published.

For the record:  Dr. Peterson WILL go down in the history books as THE Socrates/Aristotle/St. Thomas of Aquinas/Jan Hus/Gogol/Jung/Nietzsche+++ of our era – all rolled into one.

Just saying…

…but history will prove me right.

He will have turned out to be THE most influential thinker of our era.  That much I am certain about.
