Under pressure to stay relevant, the mainstream “right wing” media is being forced to cover our issues.
I covered the censorship of /r/European – then we get a report from Fox News!
Administrators at the popular online forum Reddit have been accused of censorship after quarantining a subreddit titled ‘european.’
Subreddits, which are also known as communities, are forums dedicated to specific topics.
“The administration has decided to censor free speech for Europeans and they quarantined the subreddit on the 12th of May 2016,” says a note on the subreddit link. With the subreddit set to private, the note adds that “You must be a moderator or approved submitter to visit.” Visitors to the subreddit were also urged to continue their discussions on Voat, another online forum.
The question of bias in social media has erupted recently. The Reddit accusation came just days after anonymous allegations that contractors at Facebook deliberately suppressed conservative news on the site’s Trending Topics section. Facebook has denied any political bias, saying there is “no evidence” of the alleged activity.
Reddit told FoxNews.com that the ‘european’ subreddit violated the forum’s content policy. “Quarantines on Reddit are rare – there are thousands of vibrant conversations flourishing on the site every day,” it explained, in an emailed statement. “Subreddits are quarantined only when the content is clearly offensive to the broader Reddit community.”
Quarantining aims to prevent the content from being accidentally viewed by those who do not wish to do so.
“A subreddit is quarantined when there are concerns that its content is extreme and could be offensive to people outside of that community,” explained Reddit. “The quarantine process doesn’t end the conversation; it adds an opt-in measure so that people have the choice to join the conversation,” it added.
Restrictions on a quarantined subreddit include requiring an explicit opt-in, requiring an account with a verified email address, no use of custom images and the removal of revenue generation.
The ‘european’ quarantining prompted a mixed reaction elsewhere on Reddit. Some users say that racist views were expressed on the subreddit, while others say that it hosted a range of opinions and cite the importance of open dialogue.
Please visit the new /r/European – /v/European – and show you support for this new platform offering free speech.
As the Great Shuttening continues, we will need to rely more and more on these new, independent platforms.
Voat is a great one.
And we now have Liberapay to deal with our financing problems which resulted from getting pushed off of PayPal and Patreon.
Forums, such as The Daily Stormer BBS and the TRS Forum can fill the void left by social media shutting us down (at least on some level – a lot of the purpose of using Twitter and Facebook is to interact with the normies).
There still is no real replacement for Disqus, which has resulted in a complicated situation for our comments section.
Mike Delaney has attempted to set-up an alternative to YouTube with TruTube, but has had constant problems. Hopefully he will get this rolling again.
I encourage anyone with the skills to get in on this – not only for moral and ideological reasons, but for financial reasons as well. These companies siding with the Jew/SJW shut it down agenda are going to be giving up huge portions of their userbases, eventually, and there is room to make mountains of shekels.
Because eventually, it won’t just be hardcore Nazis getting banned, but anyone who disagrees even a little bit with the Jewish narrative. Everyone is going to need new homes.
Get in now and be a major part of the future of the internet.
