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.
In the wake of the harassment of Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones, Twitter has permanently suspended conservative pundit and Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos.
Yiannopoulos, who tweeted under the handle @Nero, had several hundred thousand Twitter followers.
His account was permanently suspended around 10 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
So, just in case you wanted to catch his latest speech, here it is:
Just for the record: there was one Mohammed picture that was not a print, but an original painting. In fact, it had been part of the Draw Mohammed Contest in Garland Texas. It depicts Mohammed in the classical Marilyn Monroe pose to symbolize the harmoneous integration of Muslims into our Western society.
It is interesting that we don’t hear our politicians speak like this, is it not?
Aside: it took me two days to translate, because even though I had the text and two other translations to work from, she wanders off the script and the arguments were not in the pre-prepared official text. And the audio is terrible, especially when people are talking over each other.
I raise this point because I found it extremely interesting that after the Turkish Ambassador and some other notable guests had walked out in protest against what JuDr. Klara Samkova was saying, the moderator DID shut her down.
And he said that what she was saying is beyond ‘opinion’ and is, rather, ‘propaganda’.
Even though she has facts to back up everything she says…
Had it not been for the strong push-back from the audience, that brave lady standing up to the moderator and demanding to know who made him the authority to decide on what is or is not propaganda, she would not have been able to finish her speech.
She would also not have been permitted to finish had the other panelists convinced the moderator that if she were not permitted to deliver the rest of her speech, it would appear to be censorship and would be bad optics…
Even so, she was instructed to tone down her rhetoric before continuing – and, indeed, she did do that. Which is when she frequently deviated from the official text…
