The influential pro-Trump community broke the rules on harassment and targeting, said Reddit, which also banned other groups.

Reddit, one of the largest social networking and message board websites, on Monday banned its biggest community devoted to President Trump as part of an overhaul of its hate speech policies.

The community or “subreddit,” called “The_Donald,” is home to more than 790,000 users who post memes, viral videos and supportive messages about Mr. Trump. Reddit executives said the group, which has been highly influential in cultivating and stoking Mr. Trump’s online base, had consistently broken its rules by allowing people to target and harass others with hate speech.

“Reddit is a place for community and belonging, not for attacking people,” Steve Huffman, the company’s chief executive, said in a call with reporters. “‘The_Donald’ has been in violation of that.”

Reddit said it was also banning roughly 2,000 other communities from across the political spectrum, including one devoted to the leftist podcasting group “Chapo Trap House,” which has about 160,000 regular users. The vast majority of the forums that are being banned are inactive.

“The_Donald,” which has been a digital foundation for Mr. Trump’s supporters, is by far the most active and prominent community that Reddit decided to act against. For years, many of the most viral Trump memes that broke through to Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere could be traced back to “The_Donald.” One video, “The Trump Effect,” originated on “The_Donald” in mid-2016 before bubbling up to Mr. Trump, who tweeted it to his 83 million followers.

Social media sites are facing a reckoning over the types of content they host and their responsibilities to moderate and police that content. While Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Reddit and others originally positioned themselves as neutral sites that simply hosted people’s posts and videos, users are now pushing them to take steps against hateful, abusive and false speech on their platforms.

Yes, the left cannot survive without total control of all major media and massive online censorship. There weren't any rules broken, they just cannot compete on a platform that allows anyone to disagree with libshits. Reddit only exists to attempt to control peoples thoughts and opinions by giving a false impression that everyone agrees with their agenda. I know OP supports that and thinks that makes them 'on the right side of history'

Trying to elevate ideas by restricting the expression of others never ever ends well. Doesn’t matter what side you’re on.

It went to shit shortly after the election. They outted the good mods that made it what it was in 2015/early 2016 and replaced them with their mods and then slowly started limiting their posts, quarantine it and then finally ban it. It was awesome for that year though.

But reddit just proving once again, that libshits cannot compete if anyone is allowed to disagree with them. Why do you think any and all sites that are free speech platforms are always right-leaning? It's not because the libshits get banned, they just simply have no chance to compete. Their bullshit ideals will get drowned out quickly.

They're trying to get rid of the memes, obviously. They can't block the memes themselves, but they can get rid of the places where they are posted most frequently.

How dumb is this post.

The democrats will "just give up" if Trump wins again. No, they'll be more hysterical than ever. :-)
