Alt Right Subreddit Banned

From Red Ice

On the evening of February 1st, 2017, the alt right subreddit was banned from Reddit. The alt-right community was shut down for violating the site’s terms of service, according to Reddit.

As one of the moderators at the subreddit, I would say we are pretty vigilant about trying to abide by Reddit’s terms of service by removing “hate” speech such as slurs or taking down material that is proliferating personal information of people i.e. “doxing.” In fact, we were purposely hyper-vigilant by having absurd warnings like NSFW tags on posts and an age restriction warning on the subreddit just to inform readers that they were entering a “dangerous” part of the internet.

The only incidence where our subreddit may have violated these terms of service was promoting the WeSearchr bounty that was looking to bring justice to the masked man who assaulted Richard Spencer, President of the National Policy Institute and Editor of Radix Journal and AltRight.com. This would not be the first time someone has been removed from a social media platform for promoting WeSearchr. I should know because I was banned from Twitter for promoting that exact WeSearchr bounty. Twitter informed me I was taking part in “targeted harassment” and then had my appeal denied. Apparently, trying to identify a criminal is now considered “doxing” but I digress.

As one of the moderators of /r/altright, I believe this is just part of a greater political witch hunt that we have seen heating up over the years. The alt right movement is known for dabbling in various forms of thoughtcrime i.e. talking about race realism, ethno-nationalism and Jewish influence in society. The alt right movement has been growing exponentially over the past few years and exploded onto the mainstream political scene in 2016 during the Trump presidential campaign when Hillary Clinton gave a speech specifically denouncing the movement.

It is pretty apparent to me that this banning was nothing more than an attempt to censor our ideas from reaching more people. The alt right movement has been extremely successful at utilizing social media to grow their size and influence. It is clear that our political enemies feel threatened by us. In order to combat this new type of censorship that comes from our corporate elites, right-wingers will have to create their own platforms in which they can assure that their speech will not be silenced. However, they should not abandon attempting to fight the culture war on these platforms. It is an uphill battle but we must form these cyber beachheads in order to reach new people. We must create our own institutions and we must attempt to invade theirs as well.

For now, the alt right subreddit community will be re-grouping over on a platform dedicated to free speech known as Voat. You can find them at the subverse (their version of a subreddit) /v/identitarian. Voat will end up being a temporary home for the Alt Right subreddit. In the future, our new home will be here at the AltRight.com Forum.

AltRight.com Forum

YES!

I had actually planned to nag you about creating such a thing. We really need it, now that TRS took their forum back behind the shed. Will you try to facilitate pool parties and local meetup groups?

You guys should make a chan instead of a regular forum. 4chan is total garbage and 8chan is run by faggots and retards who seem to want the site to fail. Anonymous shitposting and chan culture is more fun than regular forums imo.

Oh god no. Chans attract losers and trolls. The Alt Right needs to attract high quality White men and women. If you want to shitpost there are a million websites for that. Don’t stink up the real Alt Right movement with juvenile idiocy. You already have the Joshua Goldberg Kosher Nazi sites for that.

The very last thing I want to see is more idiots. They make everyone else look bad. Moderators deleting some of the comments would also be a step up (which is a massive hint to admin).

They can start by deleting comments of the porn author you replied to.

Is he a porn writer?

Here’s my homage to the man who coined the 14 Words, David Lane. Did you know that David Lane wrote spanking erotica? Yes – THAT David Lane. Every time they use the term “14/88” – they are referencing David Lane. http://hipsterintelligenceagency.wordpress.com/a-rebels-dangerous-kink Of course, it’s telling that Finkelstein and his three other handles are doing their best to attack credible and effective White men like Paul Ramsey and Colin Liddell (Liddell actually is an author here on AltRight.com) and are now trying to disrupt the entire last few threads by trolling me, a humble fiction author and blogger. That’s really telling… Read more »

Why do you keep capitalizing white

Because it’s the proper name for my ethnic group.

Oh there are a lot of people here with much more unusual erotic tastes than spanking. Don’t ask me how I know because you, and they, will all regret hearing the answer. Certainly we can’t judge people’s inherent public value by their private tastes.

Interesting how the Joshua Goldberg faction has spent all of their time trying to distract everyone from the actual issues on this thread and instead taken the opportunity to trash AltRight.com authors like Colin Liddell, pro-White figures like Paul Ramsey, and have even brought up my VERY successful experiment in introducing normal, non-political White women to the works of legendary White Nationalist David Lane, his 14 Words, and otherwise building an audience of woman readers. http://hipsterracist.wordpress.com/a-warriors-woman/ That is what the Joshua Goldberg faction can’t stand – breaking the pro-White movement out of the JIDF fake “Nazi” ghetto and getting normal,… Read more »

The lack of females in these areas definately is a problem…notice there are none here…unless they are all using pseudonyms of course. The ‘Manosphere’ types drive the women away with their hysterical screeching.

I actually agree with you about the chans, but hey, bro do you by any chance know of a blog where I could publish really bad porno stories? I have some really terrible amateur porno I would like people to read and am looking for a blog that publishes that kind of stuff. Do you know of any? Heuheuheu http://archive.is/hlmq5

Man the fact that you Joshua Goldberg types have such a hard on for me proves that what I’m doing is right.

Bitch please, if you are going to link give me the traffic, merchant.

“Bitch please” – you also talk like a homosexual. ->oven

Dude I only know you from Radix and a few other sites and you almost always say stupid things. You’re a cuckboi for Colin Liddell’s operation. The fact that you say DS and TRS are run by Jews is proof enough that you’re toxically moronic. The fact that you’re a degenerate that sits around writing pornography shows that you belong in the oven. I hope to run into you at a conference one of these days.

The chans are basically where all the memes come from and is ground zero for anything relevant in online culture that isn’t happy-go-lucky corporate faggot shit like the rest of social media. And being anonymous is more fun than having an e-identity. The only issue with 4chan and 8chan is, like I said, really shitty and incompetent leadership that appears often contemptuous of its users.

Hipster Racist

If the Chans are so great, why are they constantly trying to spread their faggotry on the serious forums such as this?

Go start a chan with that 15 year old imageboard tech and attract the same set of losers the rest of them do. Have fun.

The Alt Right is becoming a serious movement so either move out of mom’s basement and join the real world – or go back to posting anime hitler cats. It’s a free country.

Halford Mackinder
Guest

What do you mean? Judging by your comments, you don’t want it to become a serious movement. You attack the *only* two groups actually doing IRL organizing of regular guys: TRS and DS. Unless I am mistaken, there are no “radix” meet-up groups, there are no “altright.blogspot” meet-up groups. You need to lay off attacking people bro. Go write some more d-list porno. http://archive.is/hlmq5

So for you the only two groups you approve of are the ones that published the Jewish fake “Nazi” Joshua Goldberg? That’s interesting.

I prefer a 100% White policy – no Jews. It just makes things easier that way.

Halford Mackinder
Guest

Those are just the two groups I see you go after most – and, coincidentally I’m sure, they are the two most successful Alt Right operations. (((Pure coincidence)))! I’m not particularly attached to either of them, but they do good work. I like Brett Stevens at Amerika.org and Hunter Wallace at occidentaldissent. But seriously about the porno stuff you write, you’re a disgusting degenerate who would not be welcome in any IRL Alt Right group.

There is literally nothing wrong with being a loser anime nazi troll living in mom’s basement.
Disenfranchised white youth should be reached out to with compassion, not ridiculed with the cold snarky bitchiness and sociopathy that I expect from a leftist.

Hipster Racist is Spergy and consequently lacks Empathy.

“Chans attract losers and troll” whose memes get retweeted by the President.

You mean Channers like Stephen Miller, Trump’s Jewish speechwriter? I always said that the fake Kosher Nazi clown act was run by Jews, just more evidence. Thanks!

It probably was Stephen Miller – he was apparently the one that wrote Trump’s Holocaust press release that forget to mention muh six gorillion.

You need to up your game, we’ve moved beyond 4Chan shitposting now. This is the big leagues, try to keep up.

Y Finkelstein

What is our game now? Autistic attacks on every Alt Right blog because no one gives a shit about your blog?

Hipster Racist

Stop your D&C tactics, Finkelstein, your constant attacks on the Alt Right and the White Nationalist movement aren’t working anymore.

Hipster Racist

Finkelstein, your constant attacks on legitimate Alt Right and White Nationalists like Paul Ramsey and Colin Liddel aren’t working anymore. Sorry, your D&C tactics are no longer working.

Ramzpaul is so based lol

Y Finkelstein

1. I’ve never really attacked Liddell.

2. RamzPaul is persona non grata in WN and Alt Right Circles after he publically disavowed the movement. Why do you feel the need to defend him after he left the movement?

Hipster Racist
Guest

Your lies aren’t working anymore Finkelstein. Your buddy Joshua Goldberg was NEVER part of the actual WN movement nor the Alt Right.

But keep trying, it’s fun to see your D&C tactics constantly failing.
