Of course, the elimination of the bourgeoisie is different, isn’t it?

On Wednesday, the website Reddit, known as the “front page of the internet,” banned 11 communities that advocated or glorified racism, ethno-nationalism, and violence. The communities kicked off the site included r/NationalSocialism, r/EuropeanNationalism, r/Nazi, and r/DylanRoofInnocent, as well as a variety of smaller subreddits.

“We will take action against any content that encourages, glorifies, incites or calls for violence or physical harm against an individual or a group of people,” the website said in a statement.

Their gaff, their rules, obviously.

Naturally, Reddit’s decision to ban certain communities drew the ire of some users, who asked why more left-leaning subreddits like r/Socialism and r/Communism haven’t been banned as well — despite the fact that they don’t specifically and regularly glorify violence against minorities, as outlined in the Reddit policy change.

See headline. Reasons.

    Same over at Twatter, where they regularly have digi-pogroms against moderate Trump supporters at the like, and hand out blue check marks as a sort of anointing oil for proggies – and not to prevent confusion via spoof accounts as they claim.

    So, the chubby blue-haired Tumblrina you’ve never heard of who spends all day on Twatter typing “FUCK DRUMPF, KILL ALL MEN, WHITE TEARS LOL” has a blue check mark.

    But Julian Assange doesn’t.

    Apart from Jews, Israelis, anyone with any money, white men.

    By who, FFS?

    Anyway. Yawn. ‘Nother piece of pointless trivia.

    Next please

    Partly due to this blog actually I put the app on my phone but have since deleted it as the site (maybe its just me) seems even more moronic and dominated by paid North Korean trolls than Twatter – these things are (usually) coming straight outta Silicon valley so it is not (for me) altogether surprising that Socialism and its offshoots, despite a death toll into the 100s of millions is getting a free pass. US higher education is an oxymoron – consists of politically correct indoctrination – with menaces.

  5. No, they don’t glorify violence against minorities.

    “For the many, not the few”.

    Why does everyone think they mean GOOD things?

  6. Purge, purge, PURGE–before it is too late for everyone.

    It is already too late for young sewage and the law will have to be used to ensure they become a controlled generation –allowed no impact on society whatsoever until their contagion dies off.

    Try the gonewild sub.

    That’s the most interesting one, as far as I can see.

    (I suspect Tim N could get a book out of it).

  8. “despite the fact that they don’t specifically and regularly glorify violence against minorities,”

    Someone obviously hasn’t *read* anything on r/socialism or r/communism (or r/latestagecapitalism) or they’d have seen that those subs *routinely* advocate for violence against minorities (and everyone else).

  9. The obvious conclusion is that it is ok to advocate violence against particular groups when those are white people, white men, rich people, rich men and rich white men.

    It isn’t really “their gaff their rules” because it is happening across the entire internet, twitter, youtube, and so on.

    Why anyone would carry blithely on assuming it is just coincidence that all sites decided to do this at the same time is a mystery to me.

  10. I can’t help but wonder who uses some of these social media sites. I don’t think I know anyone who’s ever said they posted on Twatter. Or even mentioned it, come to think of it. The only person I can think of makes much use of them is a girl spends much of her time taking selfies & sending them to people. I’m one of the unfortunate recipients. I’ll admit to using whatsap, But only because I’m in regular contact with so many third-worlders. Otherwise, I find it a superb cvnt filter. Anyone whose time is so low value that they’ll use half an hour of it in a texted conversation, could be done for the price of a 20 cent phone call, isn’t going to be high on anyone’s must know list. Apart from S.American totty, that is.

  11. Whatapp is very useful at work for talking to groups of people. Eg send picture get various opinions, send same info to everyone.

    Twitter is just another platform for people with something to say, eg Tim Worstall. I don’t read it myself but judging from the number of comments it attracts vs old fashioned blogs it looks like other people do.
