Alt-Right banned by Reddit

Reddit banned the Alt-Right subreddit today.
This community has been banned

This subreddit was banned due to a violation of our content policy, specifically, the proliferation of personal and confidential information.
Banned 2 hours ago.
My reaction? So what? What else did you expect? Every SJW-converged organization is eventually going to ban every group and individual to the right of CNN. Don't be surprised, be prepared. You can be certain that r/The_Donald is next.

This blog is on Blogger, it has been on Blogger since 2003, but I back it up every week because I don't know when SJW convergence will overcome the corporate objectives. At this point, Google and Amazon are SJW-amenable, but they are not yet fully converged because they are more interested in making money than in thought-policing. I still have Facebook and Twitter accounts, but I don't use either them because they are converged to the point of uselessness to me.

Whatever absurd reason Reddit gives doesn't matter. If the SJWs there can't find an excuse, they'll manufacture one. Andrew Torba managed to get his account banned from Twitter when he hadn't even logged into it for months; he had, quite literally, done nothing at all.

Don't whine, cry, or complain. Build your own institutions. Support the Alt-Tech organizations. You simply cannot expect to successfully lobby an authority that not only is not amenable, but is actively hostile to you, your beliefs, your nation, and everything you value.

The option to build alt tech works unless they go full retard. And they look very likely to go full retard. What happens when they pressure the hosting companies, cloudflare, Akami, etc. into refusing to do business with 'hate'?

With Trump now in control of the FCC they might hesitate, but as the pain increases they will try it anyway. Because it is what they do, double down. Somebody here said something about that....

Anonymous Steve February 01, 2017 6:56 PM  

The only reason The_Donald isn't banned yet is because it's too popular and Trump won. (Similarly, Twitter would have banned Trump by now if he had lost the election. It'd have emboldened the blue hairs). Hasn't stopped endless fuckery from the Reddit admins tho. A ban is in the post.

Voat is the non-SJW alternative.

Well Reddit use to have a slogan that said that o_o or am I mistaken... But I guess they might use the browser which is deemed better by the Opinion-Makers.

But anyways it was their Slogan so they knew it was truefact u_u!

We're not lobbying an amenable authority, we built up the sub in the expectation that it would be banned creating drama (hurting reddit's credibility among right leaning users) and recruiting sympathizers. All the mods have run previously banned subs and we talked about when the ban would come, not if, from the start.

Yes, building alternatives is better. But if you can't big sites like reddit are good recruiting grounds. Now there's altright discussion on the front page of one of the biggest sites of the internet. I like to think that's a pretty good payoff for a few hours of shitposting that otherwise wouldn't have been productive.

Anonymous One Deplorable DT February 01, 2017 7:11 PM  

@7 - there are plenty of hosting companies that don't give a damn about thought policing. Otherwise porn, gambling, and music sharing would not exist.

For Alt-Right bloggers it's trivial to setup a VPS with WordPress software which is under the GPL and is not subject to any form of control or censorship by the WordPress company.

They day they change that license you simply branch the project under the previous GPL version.

On a positive note re oppomedia strategy, Trumpites have neutralized the White House Press Corp by taking questions from journalists who live and work OUTSIDE WASHINGTON, D.C.!

They actually asked real questions, not "gotcha" questions. The meat in the room was very subdued, and all it took was 4 questions from cyberspace.

Alternate media strategy in action.

Blogger Tim Schaeffer February 01, 2017 7:21 PM  

They've already banned people who are subscribed to /r/The_Donald from commenting on other subreddits. I saw this in /r/ImGoingToHellForThis, of all places:

You appear to be a Trump supporter. Under rules set up by the reddit administrators, Trump supporters must remain in their dedicated subreddit. They are no longer allowed to spread propaganda across other subreddits. This message is from the reddit admin team, and not the moderator team of the subreddit you may find this message on. Thank you for understanding.

Blogger Cail Corishev February 01, 2017 7:24 PM  

I was surprised /r/pizzagate lasted as long as it did, because didn't reddit get converged a couple years ago? Yes, they'll always be able to find a violation as an excuse, or manufacture one if none occur naturally.

But there were already alternatives, and there will be alternatives for whatever other companies get converged, including the cloud providers and hosting companies. That's how this stuff works. It's becoming easier and cheaper every day to replace or route around any component of it. Just always have backups, and redundancy if something is really important.

Blogger ghostfromplanetspook February 01, 2017 7:35 PM  

You can openly talk about how badly you want to rail a six year old child on Reddit but not how badly you want to have a stable country with strong borders.

Also any posting site with up votes is doomed to failure and mob rule.

The option to build alt tech works unless they go full retard. And they look very likely to go full retard. What happens when they pressure the hosting companies, cloudflare, Akami, etc. into refusing to do business with 'hate'?

You can host a site anywhere in the world. If Akami won't host it, there's sure to be some Russian company dying for business. People trying to shut out the alt-right (or whatever variation you're concerned with) can only be truly effective if they manage to get domains and traffic blocked by the government, and that isn't going to happen in the US any time soon.

Blogger Cail Corishev February 01, 2017 8:15 PM  

With all the network-capable equipment we have today, it would be far easier to build an alt-Internet than it was to build the first one. Not saying anyone wants to have to go to that much trouble, but if the US government ever goes China on us, that's what'll happen.

Alt-tech is precisely the way to go. And hackers of the old school, like ESR, are ideologically compatible with the alt-right because they also are primarily motivated by understanding reality. Computers don't care about your feelings, your code is either correct or it isn't.

Vox, have you done any economic analysis on Google as the de facto currency issuer for the Internet? Adwords credits are basically same as cash for any Internet business, and Google can effectively issue them without limit.

THIS! So very much, THIS.

I'm an engineer/machinist/small business owner. I have to buy things (supplies, components, tooling, materials, consumables, etc) all the time to do my work.

I would LOVE to be able to only spend my money with people who support where we're trying to take this nation.

Now, I know that the mantra here is "Don't complain, fix it." but this is once again an instance of simply not having the expertise to do so.

As my old man would say, "All I've got, is the urge." No expertise, no free time to give, just a desire to support the idea of doing business with those who also want to save the West and white civilization.

Can anyone here help us make this something other than a simple desire?

Quebec has always had identitarians, ever since Sept. 13th, 1759 when the French lost the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, part of the seven years war between Britain and France. It takes various forms over the years according to fashion of the times.

The Left is on an eternal purity spiral, by victim-hierarchy, race, class, beliefs..if California breaks off, expect folks to be put in cages, hanged, beaten etc, for breaking their Puritanical social order. People will pay Coyotes to break out of the state into Nevada, and Oregon.

you really haven't thought this through, have you?

IF you establish a society in which only *one* side is permitted to express their political views
THEN that society will inevitably destroy itself.

you advocate that those of the Right lose their jobs, their businesses, their social standing for the most minor of offenses against the current cause du jour ( which position is often so mainstream that Democrat presidents like Bill Clinton and Obama were CAMPAIGNING on them just a few years ago ) and you're in here telling US we're the problem?

is Reddit a private company? yes.

does the 1st Amendment "apply" to them? nominally, no. the 1st was written to constrain THE FEDERAL ( *not* the States ) government.

you see how all this has been perverted to the point where the entire nation will demand that some tiny pizza shop in podunk Indiana be shut down for daring to say that they'd rather not cater ( pizza? for a WEDDING? ) a queer marriage ceremony.

you drew up the rules, we'll follow them.

Right. What's more, legal protections offer very limited cover. It may not be strictly legal to fire someone due to their voting habits, but it's certainly not difficult to avoid hiring them, promoting them or exercising discretion as to who is the first to be laid off.

What constitutional safeguards Americans enjoy are not shared in other western nations. Even in America, it did not suffice in academia and other cultural institutions. Conservatives were not terribly effective in fighting for the agora. Creating alternative networks is necessary, but a space in the mainstream must be carved out somehow.
