BREAKING: Reddit Bans r/donaldtrump Forum For Inciting Violence

This isn’t stoping.

Reddit has banned r/donaldtrump for encouraging and glorifying violence after Wednesday’s mob attack on the US Capitol:

Axios reporter Sara Fischer first reported the news, noting that the unofficial pro-Trump forum had been given multiple warnings. A Reddit splash page says the subreddit was “banned due to a violation of Reddit’s rules against inciting violence.” The r/donaldtrump forum had approximately 52,000 members before its ban, according to an Internet Archive snapshot

“Reddit’s site-wide policies prohibit content that promotes hate, or encourages, glorifies, incites, or calls for violence against groups of people or individuals. In accordance with this, we have been proactively reaching out to moderators to remind them of our policies and to offer support or resources as needed,” a Reddit spokesperson tells The Verge. “We have also taken action to ban the community r/donaldtrump given repeated policy violations in recent days regarding the violence at the US Capitol.”

Trump has the nuclear codes and command of the military. But he can’t be on Twitter or Reddit. It pretty much says everything doesn’t it? January 20th can’t come soon enough.
