Reddit has banned and removed the user-created community that supported President Donald Trump, as part of the ongoing and truly massive PURGE taking place in tech and all over the internet in general.
It’s both an Trump-specific purge and an ideological purge, not to mention a test run for bigger and better purges to come.
Reddit used the claim we said they would all use: “incitement.” It is, like we said, a term that they are using subjectively, and which they will continue and continue to expand the definition of.
From The Hill:
The r/DonaldTrump page was not officially hosted by President Trump, but it was a community dedicated to supporting him.
Additionally, Reddit said, in accordance with its site-wide policies that prohibit content that promotes hate or incites violence, the platform has “been proactively reaching out to moderators to remind them of our policies and to offer support or resources as needed.”
It’s just going to be more and more and get worse and worse, y’all.
Shortly, the Right Scoop Round-up of Big Tech Purge stories will be out, as a comprehensive reference to all the bans, de-platforming, and censorship, so stay tuned. It’s a LONG list.
