Reddit takes Chinese money and purges 2,000 subreddits

Reddit has purged some of the most popular communities on the site today after a recent announcement that they will be cracking down on "hate speech." Over 2,000 communities were purged including the pro-Trump community r/The_Donald and the popular left-wing community r/ChapoTrapHouse.

Last year Reddit took a $150m investment from the Communist Chinese, so these bans and the pivot away from freedom should not be a surprise to anyone. Reddit is not only purging thousands of communities from the site, but they are also banning users who "upvote" content which breaks their new "hate speech" rules. Meaning even if you don't post the content yourself, Reddit will ban you if you engage with it.

“I have to admit that I’ve struggled with balancing my values as an American, and around free speech and free expression, with my values and the company’s values around common human decency,” Reddit CEO Steve Huffman said.

Perhaps all that communist Chinese money made his decision a little easier.

The Biden family through Hunter Biden took an investment from the ChiComs as well.

The ChiComs tentacles are everywhere (Hollywood, Social Media, etc.).

Statehood for Hong Kong!

We agree on that.

If Singapore can do it, why not Hong Kong?

Tumblr died in 2018 after banning porn. LET'S MAKE REDDIT BAN PORN. That should be our top goal. Let's spread these memes everywhere and make more.
