MetaReddit's new 'Trust and Safety Team' just quarantined the r / european subreddit (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by 2CHAD_J_THUNDERCOCK

It was a free speech subreddit that discussed immigration freely.

Reddit admins hired somebody yesterday to increase our safety for us. https://archive.is/SCJyy

r / european played a semi-major role in signal boosting the Cologne Sex Attacks back in January; as did TRP. Mainstream subs were forced to stop removing/deleting threads as there was so much attention on them. Then it was frontpage. Then the news on reddit helped signal boost the message on twitter; which eventually lead to (some) news organisations finally reporting on the story 4 days after it happened. Then that got the ball rolling on opening up the Overton window.

Daily mail reporters and Breitbart reporters used the european sub to crowdsource local news on attacks that national publications (of Germany, Sweden, etc) refused to print. I know this as I know people working there. They did not have systems to crowdsource the local news stories in many languages. It was a small sub but it helped changed the narrative at a global scale for a few months.

Be very careful about sharing your email with reddit if you plan to view this or any quarantined sub. They removed their disclaimer about sharing data with governments in the ToS a few months back.

For a long time FatPeopleHate, european and theredpill were considered by many as the holy triad of reddit 'hatespeech'. Now only one is left.

There might be a high risk of this sub also getting quarantined shortly.

I love how admins like the ones you mentioned feel like they have some type of power in the world. It's pathetic to see people like that and others (like SJW's) try to censor the truth. I can't even imagine how much stimulus they indulge in a day to feed their escapism, and the constant bullshit they tell themselves.

This morning I got the same conclusion, and I have been strigling to make a good definition about that behaviour.

Thank you.

[–]Brian_Donnerhuhn 22 points23 points  (3 children)

That's really what it comes down to. People who's moms and dads didn't love them and made them feel powerless and out of control of their own lives, so they have to project that onto others in the world.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Do you think their parents didn't love them enough, or loved them too much and sheltered them from every potential danger in life, making them feel powerless and out of control in their own lives and engendering a belief that anything different, even an idea, is dangerous?

[–]Brian_Donnerhuhn 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Well I personally don't think that loving your child and helicopter parenting/over-sheltering them go hand in hand. But, ultimately I don't really care about the causes that led these sorts of people to their beliefs, just what the ends of their ideas would entail for me, day-to-day. It's soft-fascism.

I hope we can collectively agree to just skip over most of the millennial generation for public office elections lol. Because I can't imagine a worse group to put in charge of the government.

[–]1grubek 2 points3 points  (0 children)

100% agree. Helicopter parenting comes from selfishness not love. Loving your kid means trying to do what is best for him even when it is not the best for you. Helicopter parents use the excuse of protecting their kids to maintain the control over their kids that they enjoy, even when deep down they know it would be better for the kid to experiment and try stuff in their life.

[–]ThrowyMcGruder 9 points10 points  (3 children)

It's especially fun to show these kinds of people just how little power they have.

I was once sitting in a beer garden (outdoor drinking area) drinking with a few friends. I was telling a story and said, while pointing to a friend, "That's when this son of a bitch came along and...."

A girl I sort of know, who was sitting with us, interrupted me, waving her hand, shaking her head, and saying, "No. No. No. I don't like the B word. Don't say that."

I said, "What word? Bitch?"

She winced and said, "Yes. Don't use that word. I don't like it.", as if everything was settled now.

I said, "Well that must be a bitch."

At that point she took a deep and impatient breath and tried to explain to me, as if I was an idiot, that she didn't want me to use that word.

I just smiled and said that I'll use the word 'bitch' as much as I want and if she had a problem with it she could call the police and bitch to them about it.

She looked flabbergasted. She honestly just didn't understand the situation and just said, "But...you can't do that."

I continued to grin and said, "I'm pretty sure I can.", turned back to the group and continued on with, "So anyway. That's when this son of a bitch came along..."

She made a few attempts to turn the group against me but everyone shrugged her off so, of course, she flirts with me now and loves how I'm "so blunt and do my own thing".

[–]Horus_Krishna_2 2 points3 points  (0 children)

haha yeah as I was reading this I suspected she ended up liking you and that is nicely confirmed at the end

[–]smokebloom 51 points51 points [recovered]

The censoring and limiting of (right wing) thought isn't new and it's not unique to Reddit. Twitter actively blocks trending hashtags and users as well as limiting tweets from certain users from making out of their immediate sphere of followers. Twitter also has the "safe speech council" (lol wtf) to ban any user they deem offensive. Facebook whitewashes and cleanses trending news topics at the top of their site and temporarily bans people with 'unsavory' viewpoints like Lauren Southern.

One of the final units of the semester involved teaching young journalists how to scrub conservative points of view out of various media sources, since those points of view shouldn't qualify for protection.

That's not an okay thing to teach people.

What I find bizarre is that they are not even threatening a real person. They are literally threatening an anonymous username--in other words, a line of text! Like I give a shit about my anonymous reddit username. Go ahead and 'ban' me. I'll obviously sign up with a new username in the time it takes me to type one up.

[–]RedditAdminsSuck_88 43 points44 points  (23 children)

My username is the result of having to always make new accounts because reddit always shadowbans/suspends my accounts for no given reason at all. I had a post I made on The_Donald get linked to by SRS, which led to me getting numerous hate mail in my inbox by triggered SRS SJWs, and then shortly after I got my account suspended. More proof that SRS = Reddit Admins.

[–]Senior Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil 66 points67 points  (20 children)

Reddit SRS Admins forced the_Donald to remove me from the mid team

[–]erowidtrance 24 points25 points  (18 children)

Really? Can you give any more details? Did they force CWM out aswell? Apparently the_donald is now removoing a lot more non-trump related content so its red pilling potential in non-trump related areas will be massively diminished. Do you know if that's true? One of the smart things you guys did was give front page exposure to a range of important topics.

[–]Senior Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil 63 points64 points  (17 children)

CWM was doxed. I tried to continue the hard-line policy but was removed by TrumpGirl who is cucking for the leftist Admins. In fact if a post gets too many upvotes the admins will remove it if the mods don't axe it first. Soros is a major stakeholder of Reddit and won't let the front page lean right.

[–]zoidbergisourking 13 points14 points  (10 children)

Who was he doxxed by? And do you have any archives of posts being removed? Be very interesting to be able to see evidence of that.

[–]Senior Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil 26 points27 points  (9 children)

[–]zoidbergisourking 17 points18 points  (2 children)

But...But those images don't prove that? They just say that you've been banned and accused of vote manipulating? And that The_Donald actually does vote manipulate? Like I'm not attacking you or anything I'm just really curious if you have any actual evidence.

[–]Senior Contributordr_warlock 4 points5 points  (1 child)

[–]1337Mcburnie 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I have noticed this aswell. If you want an alternative subreddit I opened TrumpForPresident 11 month ago after I saw the bernicuckforpresident hivemind. I redirected the subreddit 4 month ago. If you can get CNW onboard aswell with a alt account, I would gladly give you full control.

[–]okkyle 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Dude, you're right. I have no inside knowledge of any mod drama, but it's abundantly clear that the sub has changed over the last month.

Just look at the activity level. When I first subscribed in early March, they had about 60k subs, but always had at least 7k active at anytime. Now, they have almost 130k subs, more than double, yet the activity on the sub is only about 7-9k on average. /u/TrumpGal and the admins are sucking the soul out of the sub. Under CWMS, the sub was beginning to transcend Trump and become anti-SJW/anti-PC culture/Pro-Nationalism sub. When you combine that with the fun energy and hilarious memes, you get a viral, powerful cultural movement. Seriously, try explaining your RedPill arguments to a Cuck or a feminist, feels like banging your against a wall. But you get people to laugh at feminists and cucks, spread viral memes pointing out their insanity, that's using soft power to win hearts and minds. Not everyone is capable of rationally discerning an argument, but no one wants to be a laughing stock, and everyone wants to feel like they're on the winning team.

I think this was the real threat that The_Donald presented. It was making anti-SJWism cool and thus the sub had to be bridled. The censorship is obvious. The memes aren't as spicy, the sub just overall isn't as funny and exciting as it was a month ago. There's obvious censorship and it's neutered the HIGH ENERGY

[–]letriggeredface 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same w mine, its the reaction my posts provoke in sjws. As for proof srs = admins, just ask why the admins dont quarantine or outright get rid of SRS since they are the biggest brigade/harrassment sub on all of reddit and check ever box on the regulations that were used to get rid of fatpeoplehate. Its ok though, the declining user number only means that in a few years this site will be the next digg.

[–]sigma272 24 points25 points  (11 children)

It's going to be interesting to see the backlash if the_Donald and TRP are shut down. I know the folks at the_Donald would Trumpify all of reddit if that sub was axed.

[–]bluecantuesday 31 points31 points [recovered]

They already castrated it by doxing CWM and getting rid of GLO

Now they have trumpgal redpillwomening it into the ground by, for example, removing every mention of the r-european screwover

[–]sigma272 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I think that's the only feasible strategy on their end - make it die a slow death by injecting their own mods into it behind the scenes. Make it a 100% serious political sub and everyone will go back to TIFU and funny.

[–]Nydusurmainus 17 points18 points  (0 children)

[–]afkb39sdfb 14 points15 points  (6 children)

People have been "doom and gloom" about TRP getting banned since I joined this sub with only 7,000 subs with my original account nearly three years ago. TRP is still here. This isn't some witches covenant during the inquisition guys. Men have been getting together and talking about the realities of women since humans developed language. Our fathers/grandfathers did the same thing in fraternities like that Masons/Shriners/Elks/Knights of Columbus/etc. This is just the 21st century meeting place for those same old discussions. Men will always create a place for those discussions, if not here, then somewhere else.

[–]jdgalt 29 points30 points  (2 children)

I disagree. Non-PC discussion has already been effectively outlawed in workplaces; now they're after schools. Meanwhile the left is trying to put the Internet under UN control. Gee, I wonder why?

[–]truthyego 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Internet kill switch. I actually think the net needs to be redesigned entirely, into a system of ad hoc and mobile connection hubs with a new transfer protocol. More decentralized and user controlled.

The existing system is heavily centralized, monitored, controlled, and designed to make it easy for govt spying.

Decentralization is the answer to a lot of the problems caused by corporate governance

[–]jdgalt 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I believe the IP protocol (at least v4) is good enough for the time being, but we need an alternative set of name servers that ICANN doesn't control. And preferably, good guys need to start capturing full images of the DNS system on at least a monthly, preferably daily basis, so that domains seized by government can be kept alive for whoever still wants to go there. That much can be done fairly easily, perhaps by somebody like archive.org (whose local DNS cache is probably a pretty complete snapshot of the whole namespace already, since that site regularly retrieves pages from everywhere).

Second would be to create alternative network pathways and keep them ready to use if and when authorities actually try to use an "Internet kill switch". Peer-to-peer wi-fi will be useful in this regard, as will packet radio, but both can be jammed, and even if they aren't they can't reach everybody. So I'm thinking of either bringing back FidoNet or an updated equivalent. (FidoNet was a 1980s-era automated "phone tree" arrangement that allowed local BBSes to exchange messages and files, mostly without running up any long distance charges, but of course if used today its purpose would be different.)

I hear what your argument but honestly at this point anything but a vote against Clinton is a vote for the SWJ non sense which is over taking America. If you think it's going to stop at European shores at this point your completely wrong.

Europe is filled with nuclear weapons and massive tools of warfare within their armouries. The majority of the EU will fall to an internal conflict within the next generation. Likely we are going to see the rise of an extremist government in one manner or another.

If one of these extremist governments to rise up is Anti white or Anti capitalism which seems to be the prevailing voice North America will find itself with no allies and at best friend-emies in Russia and China.

This all came on the base of the Marxist socialism expansion. Any president or senate which doesn't attempt to divert the course in the US at this point is going to echo the situation in NA within another 2 generations after this one. Staying the course isn't even enough anymore.

Posted about this in the TRP IRC.

I still think this sub will eventually be quarantined, along with The_Donald, TumblrInAction, KotakuInAction, and others. Reddit went with the low hanging fruit at first, and are now slowly lurching to ban less controversial subs. European was nothing more than a sub to talk about Europe without the Orwellian style censorship found in the Europe sub. Nothing more, nothing less.

Basically when subs get too big(i.e. CoonTown, FatPeopleHate, European) their posts get upvoted enough to reach all and the front page. Advertisers don't like this. This also causes the media to write articles about how reddit is a hotbed for hate and bigotry. Hence reddit coming down with the censorship, quarantining/banning those subreddits for PR purposes.

Also, globalist interests own reddit and they want to make sure narratives that run counter to the globalist agenda(i.e. stories about refugees raping people in western europe) get scrubbed. Combine that with the fact all the reddit admins are San Francisco residents, that means they are likely SJW leftist faggots as well, so they are more than willing to comply.

[–]1FunAndFreedom 62 points63 points  (5 children)

Red Pill: Advertisers are meaningless to reddits bottom line.

Reddit would be bankrupt if they relied on advertising. They rely on multimillion dollar infusions of cash from "angel investors" The way Reddit gets these "angel investors" to open their wallets is by helping them to distort public opinion.

Europeans get a little out of control and expose immigration problems? Say the subreddit is shocking and "Bad for advertisers" and quarantine it. The reality is that they mean it's "bad for Soros".

The_Donald gets out of control? Have the admins access the servers IP logs to help dox the mods. It will absolutely happen to TRP. If the mods here were smarter they would force a migration to the offsite TRP right now and at least have a profitable website.

One of our advantages with reddit is that we do still have quite a large userbase here on reddit. We don't intend on moving unless reddit forces our hand. Though, you're more than welcome to join up and join in the conversation already taking place offsite: https://www.trp.red

I agree, I think it's just a matter of time now. TRP already has over 150.000 subscribers, and that number keeps growing every day. European had a bit over 20.000 subscribers and got quarantined. And this subreddit is generally far more hated than European.

[–]1PrinceofSpades 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The people need something to hate. If they scrub us, they'll end up being the hated ones before too much more time passes. People dislike others taking away free speech, they're just too stupid to know what free speech is until it's being taken away from them.

[–]okkyle 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Advertisers don't like this

Nothing to do with that. All advertisers care about is getting their ads in front of a big audience. This censorship is about an agenda. Ask CNN, Fox, MSNBC, Sean Hannity and anyone else on talk radio if Trump content has scared away their advertisers. The guy is ratings gold and ad companies just wan their material to be seen. If reddit allowed users to speak freely, traffic would rise and subs would be way more active and ad revenue would rush in.

Making fun of black people who behaved like monkeys* and highlighting the media bias of portraying ghetto hoodlums as innocent youths who couldn't do anything wrong. They grew too big and the mods weren't the stereotypical neonazi skinhead human trash types, so they had to go.

Disagree with this one. I've seen enough threads on worldnews on this subject get upvoted to the front page. Maybe you should realize that this is part of the globalist agenda. I'll keep saying it time and time again-- drop your nationalist goggles, the rich/powerful don't give two shits if you fight/die in their wars for oil, nor if your women are raped. Protect your own assets, period.

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (2 children)

I've seen enough threads on worldnews on this subject get upvoted to the front page.

No, you haven't. You've seen a very, very small minority of them; those that got through the quick censorship of the mods because the case was too big and too famous to bury. There are hundreds and hundreds of stories of violence, assault and rape by immigrants that would get upvoted by outraged people, if only the mods didn't cull them with excuses like "local news".

Reddit is a fucked company. If is not if, but when.

You see two things here. One, the business side of reddit is trying to find a away to monetize our speech. Being dyed in the wool San Francisco hipster SJW, they honestly think that proper words and group-think are more valuable than the mob of ideas. They are trying to curate reddit so they can sell its produce. It will never happen. Two, and this is particularly applicable to the founders, they think the investors gave them their money to do good, instead of build a good company. The assweasels at Facebook got away with this because they had viable business model. Reddit? When they run out of money, that's it; no one else will help them.

It will get much worse as they run out of runway. Ultimately, they will be forced to sell the user-base to a bigger company, who won't give a single fuck about content, speech or anything. They will do it just to get your eyes for 30 seconds and dispose of the whole pile of shit.

I'd agree with you until you realize a few things that paint a really scary picture of change that long ago happened.

Reddit didn't just survive up to this point and are now trying to cash in, they are clearly at this point a state sponsored site or at the very least a prime state tool. I wouldn't be on someone outright finding money connected unless you do some digging, but all the puzzle pieces are there that a shift took place in 2012-2013, plus all the Pao stuff just helps illustrate it even further. You will never find it outright unless someone digs, but just look at the evidence and it's pretty hard not to see this place got some serious interests and players to coordinate changes in that time period and the shift in mod control and censorship that took place immediately after.

[–]sharp7 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I mean its the best propaganda machine out right now. Who would want this most? Politicians. Put money into reddit and now you control which posts get upvoted the most. Which ever candidate gets slandered the most. Etc.

A decentralized reddit would be best. They already decentralized things with tech like bittorrent. Hell they even decentralized money with bitcoins. A decentralized reddit shouldn't be hard to make.

[–]theultimatewarriors 1 point2 points  (1 child)

But that's it.... look at how hard they fought to eliminate those. A decentralized reddit does exist but when I used it, the conent wasn't there, it isn't as fast, and requires logins and... I don't even remember. I stopped using it and just tried to get better at blocking out content I hated by staying away from the main subs.

[–]sharp7 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But just the existence of decentralized reddit is good. Reddit knows it can't go full retard because there ARE other options.

[–]vverons 23 points23 points [recovered]

I have been wondering this for a while. How does Reddit make money? I doubt Reddit gold provides enough cash to pay for servers, bandwidth, staff, etc.. And Conde Nast or whoever sure as fuck isn't spending millions keeping this site up just for the cat pics.

Putting on my tinfoil hat but I'm really thinking its a just a tool to be bought by some libs to keep control and make the users think it's grassroots when it's AstroTurfed. Anything right leaning, conservative, etc is suppressed and all liberal/feminist/bs is always at the top.

/tinfoil removed

[–]maszyna 6 points7 points  (2 children)

How does Reddit make money?

They don't. With my other account I've been trying to give them money for years. It took literally years until they got their ass up to support credit cards from other countries than the US for their self serve advertising.

Well, years after my first attempt I finally got to do advertising on reddit. So I threw together a campaign and targeted some appropriate subs ... only to find out - a few hundred dollars in - that the admins of those subs just edited the CSS to hide the ads behind the header graphics, etc. My ads counted as displayed and reddit billed me - but the users didn't get to see the ads even if they had no adblockers installed.

So I wrote a mail to the support team for ads and they replied something in the spirit of: "LOL TOO BAD FOR YOU".

That's not how you run a company.

[–]R4ndom_Hero 13 points14 points  (3 children)

They make some cash on non-disruptive ads and Reddit gold. It's not a lot, but keeps it afloat. At least that was the situation under previous CEO.

With it's userbase and content it has a lot of potential to make loads of cash. All it takes is to add more banners and they can start making millions within a day. The only way that is stopping them is that they don't want to end up like digg, so they look for other ways to monetize the content.

Nope. It just investor money.

[–]Senior Endorsed Contributormax_peenor 2 points3 points  (1 child)

They took a $50m placement about a year and a half ago. They are burning through it. I will agree with some of the other commenters that money is being funneled to them through political interests, but that is a dangerous game to play. The first and second seat investors could go after these sources if they can prove they did not work in the best interest of the shareholders. The most common way to somewhat skirt this is to open a line of credit for reddit to draw on with no intention of ever paying it back. I don't know if they are doing this, but I've seen it happen many times (though usually just to stuff executives pockets and not some fools errand like this).

It's all sort of academic though. The cucks think they are doing political good for their cause. The very opposite is happening. Outside of the echo chamber, people are starting to openly mock the SJW bullshit. It will eventually turn into open hostility. Need proof? I present you Nominee Donald Trump.

San Francisco, a city I spend maybe three or four days a week in, is a morass of delusional progressives. They think they get the attention they have because they are right. No, children. You get attention because of a tech bubble and the money surrounding it. Once the money runs out, no one will give a fuck about your feel good, unicorn happy bullshit. Enjoy it while it lasts...

[–]Endorsed ContributorRunawayGrain 12 points13 points  (0 children)

You are assuming the upper brass has IT knowledge. Take Ellen Pao, the former CEO. Her resume mostly consists of being a junior partner at a venture capital firm, being the CEO of Reddit, and managing to sue almost everyone she has come into contact with. She was so SJW that the Reddit user-base revolted and they had to get rid of her before the site collapsed.

I think the upcoming vote on Brexit will answer this question one way or the other. If Britain leaves the EU, whatever effects it may or may not have on trade or the economy, at least part of the purpose will be to allow the UK to restrict immigration, especially of "Syrian" "refugees". And at least part will be to enable the UK to refuse any more bailout payments to Greece and the other irresponsible spendthrift countries. Britain will be only the first of a stampede that breaks up the entire bloc.

But if Britain stays in, then most likely all the members will stay to be destroyed by both problems.

The problem is some extremist far right cunt will come in and that is the person people will follow to fix things.

In all seriousness Trump will be good for America and that is from an Australians point of view.

A lot of guys (including me on my main account) were banned by mods on Europe sub for posting comments or submissions criticizing mass illegal immigration into Europe. European sub was the only place you could discuss this subject without any censorship.

Reddit prefers subreddits where there's no free speech, and where mods are banning users and removing their comments if they are not politically correct.

[–]BMRGould 3 points4 points  (8 children)

"politically correct"

Yes, obviously the best way to describe comments like shown here, https://archive.is/h4Yen on a picture of a white women kissing a black man...

Hang her for treason. Disgusting whore, will laugh when he beats her and leaves.

Fucking white bitch race traitor. She needs to be deported along with the monkeys and sand niggers.

Just send them to the monkeyman's homeland where they belong. Fuck the coalburners.

Get raped by a nigger you fucking worthless cuck.

Just because people used european to discuss immigration does not change the fact that it was full of full on racsist and violent comments. You can discuss immigration without also bringing up literally commiting genocide on all of them, which happened frequently on european.

[–]Rathadin 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Then if they choose not to lose weight after knowing how, they need to be shamed.

I never shame the ignorant. Ignorance can be cured with knowledge. I only shame the lazy.

[–]1mr_nate_ 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Now I wouldn't shame fatties just to shame them and emotionally scar them, rather, to encourage them to lose weight. And the reason is purely selfish: to get them to stop hurting my eyes.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Man only weak people get emotionally scarred by what was on fph, it was just a bunch of people laughing at delusional fatties. I'm not saying that you should go find a fat girl/dude and tell them "oh shit you need to go to the fucking gym you disgusting piece of shit", that's just mean. But fat people need to know that it's not acceptable to be so fat that you are affecting the rest of society by for example taking up your seat on an airplane with their left asscheek. I think that your body is your body and nobody else's business. Unfortunately this doesn't apply when you're morbidly obese and affect other people by your poor decisions.

[–]1mr_nate_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Agreed, but reddit is a cesspool of the said weaklings who cringe at the thought of anything not strictly PC.

[–]whenfoom 19 points20 points  (0 children)

The regressive left thinks that anything offensive is false. They also have degenerate sensibilities. I don't think the regressive left can even make sense of the word 'degenerate.' And if you asked them what it meant, they'd just say something stupid like "You!" They lack the orientation towards morality that allows them to understand how morals are something that have to be taken care of, something fragile, that have to be tended with care.

[–]Nonadonus 32 points33 points  (12 children)

[–]Nonadonus 1 point2 points  (8 children)

I will. I didnt because I had the mistaken impression that this subreddit was "declinist" in that nothing is done but to enjoy the decline by participating in the behavior which led to the decline to the exclusion of all others.

I dont have an issue with people who do that but it's not me

[–]1ToSeeAndToHear 12 points13 points  (1 child)

The "enjoy the decline" attitude is mostly created by recognizing that public political discourse is still way too focused on pro-feminism ideals for us to start some kind of movement for change.

The only thing one can actually affect is one's own life, so the advice is to stop trying to go all men's rights activist and focus on enjoying your life. If you feel like you need to do something, as many in this sub do (or the experienced guys who have made it wouldn't be here contributing for noobs like me) just keep some awareness percolating so that more men wake up and improve themselves.

[–]Nonadonus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Very true. And forming a community is important too

[–]RedSugarPill 6 points7 points  (3 children)

There are all types here.. 'enjoy the decline', 'RP Dads', 'Dark Triads', blue & white collars, rich & poor. It's a locker room with all types of men (well, all except for perhaps run-of-the-mill SJWs). Lots of contrast here..

Well, the possibility of all the libertarians exiting and doing their own thing, many of them being extremely high IQ leads me to think that it won't be that long before a new Athens emerges after the wests decline

Be very careful about sharing your email with reddit if you plan to view this or any quarantined sub. They removed their disclaimer about sharing data with governments in the ToS a few months back.

This should be reiterated time and again.

Reddit is not your friend. Reddit is the centralization of web forums. 10 years ago, what someone's posting life was on many different servers on far flung domains... maybe possible for the government to pin down, but not any one company. No it's now possibly mostly here. A sub for everyone, the ultimate convenience. With that centralization comes power (to reddit). Power ALWAYS gets abused in the end.

Reddit is going to go on for many years but it will get increasingly shittier. The censorship will slip in like slowly boiling a frog. Most users won't care and actually defend it to be part of the crowd.

Don't bother fighting it, this is corptocracy. Extract what you can and give them as little as possible.

[–]Senior Contributordr_warlock 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Most users don't care because most people aren't thought criminals.

[–]Senior ContributorNightwingTRP 17 points18 points  (5 children)

I unsubbed from there a while ago. Last time I went back people were posting videos like "Hitler's warning" and associated fascist stuff. It had a time when it was good, but then seemed to get overrun with fascists. Not my scene.

I've had a quick look down it now and it doesn't look too bad. (Though of course Hitler is mentioned on page 2... ffs guys!) They appear to be planning to move off reddit.

You can ignore those threads. I did, since I'm not interested in Nazism nor a nostalgic. It was still a valuable subreddit, as it was the only place where you could get unfiltered news on Europe (both /worldnews and /europe are heavily censored).

[–]Alanranks7 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sad that many turn to nazism but alot of people are drifting into that mindset, mostly the blue pilled drift into the far right or left because they are followers except the leaders maybe. Bottom line many nazis and the leftist numales that fight each other are in many cases worker drones that drink the kool aid. Having pride in your country or ideology is one thing, it is quite another if it becomes your life.

If this sub gets shut down, I will personally invest time and money into rebuilding a bigger an better forum to discuss and embrace TRP.

I'm sure a lot of you share my sentiment.

Bad response to what is a play to censor RP ideology in case it gets big. This is one more way for the leftist Big Brother to stop BP men from waking up to the shitfest of hypergamy and feminist abuses that regularly go on. Never forget that feminism is used for power, and leftist agendas largely support the current hegemony of jewish control over media.

The Streisand Effect is a completely different thing. When Reddit quarantines a sub, they do not file a lawsuit which becomes a public record for the media to find, as Streisand did. (Though we might want to find or create a channel to use to publicize such events once there's no place we can do it on Reddit.)

[–]SobStoryBob 2 points3 points  (11 children)

Okay, can we pause for a second?

I know that there is a general ring of sub-reddits that TRP seems to be within, and thus we, as a total, feel we should support those other reddits, but the european sub-reddit wasn't just "exposing the things that the liberal media would not".

I implore the users of this sub-reddit to check the comments in any thread there. They have many subscribers that genuinely argue that the Nazi party was doing good in gassing jewish people. Many of the posts are outright racist. And no, not in the militant liberal version of racism, nor even in the moderate versionof racism. Many, as in, more than half, of the comments are racist in the narrowest definition of the term. Here are some comments I just copied and pasted here in 5 minutes there.

It's a Jewish cock, my friend. Shitskins are only a Zionist tool, just like cultural Marxism is. Do you think negros and shitskins would be able to do anything if it wasn't for the treacherous politicians?

Love my uncucked mates - bunch of cane farmers and tradies and we all talk shit about coons, Chinks, Muslims, recently T*rks, it's great stuff. (15 upvotes on this)

And then this exchange:

I'm also not attracted to black women. But for me, it's not only the skin color that does it. It's also the shape of the head, the lips, the nose, the eyes, the big forehead, the hair. Literally everything that is usual for black people, I am not attracted to.

Yeah, black women with more white-like features (biracial, I guess?) sometimes look alright.

lol no that's even worse

Haha, fair enough. I don't particulalrly find the attractive, just slightly less unattractive than giga-nigga women.

This alignment with other subreddits with focuses far removed from the original intent of this subreddit is one thing, but when that subreddit has been clearly misrepresented by the OP, I feel I must speak.

[–]TRP VanguardWhisper 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Yes. So what?

It's a measure of just how political orthodoxy has poisoned modern thinking, that you believe "These guys are straight-up racist" is an argument for shutting down a forum.

Yeah, they're straight-up racist. There was one asshole who got banned from here, subsequently found out that one of our mods is black, and posted a rant there about how the eeeeevil "nigger" banned him. Repugnant as both you and I find this... so what?

When you use your personal distaste for someone's words as an excuse to silence him, you cross a line. And on one side of that line is the freedom of thought and expression that made Western culture great. On the other side of that line is the tribal monoculture of third-world shitholes everywhere.

If you want to grow and prosper and learn, subreddits are okay, segregation of topics is okay, but quarantining and utter silencing is not. It doesn't work. No one is smart enough to know what topics "should not" ever be discussed, or what things "should not" ever be said.

What's wrong with this? It's just people talking about their subjective (and possibly genetic) criteria for attraction. It may be distasteful to you, but it's not racist to be unattracted to black people.

Or is it just the off-hand use of the term "giga-nigga" (whatever that means) that has your panties in a wad? If so, then why didn't you just quote that line?
