Reddit, that bastion of free speech, has a group called r/ferguson, which is part of a network run by white supremacists.


The Daily Dot discovered r/fergsuon, whose front page currently displays several items supporting Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown, alongside other, openly racist posts, and contacted its founder, who goes by Jewish_NeoCon2. He told the site he registered r/ferguson two days after Brown was killed so that other, non-racist persons couldn’t grab it.

The Ferguson subreddit isn’t very large—just 174 people subscribe at the time of this writing, as opposed to 12,528 on r/StLouis, a more established board—and several of its users post straight, non-racist news items about the protests. Its intent, however is clear: a sidebar urges users to visit r/GreatApes, a popular white supremacist board also moderated by Jewish_NeoCon2, and advertises itself as part of the so-called “Chimpire,” a community of dozens of virulently racist subreddits.

It’s astounding that sites like this are get much real estate on Reddit, but if you try to put something on that site from it will tell you: is not allowed on reddit: the domain is banned.[su_sky_ad]

    Oh lookie!
    ‘Do you faggots at Gawker want a race war? Because you’ll get it and it won’t be pretty. Hint: Blacks won’t win because basketballs aren’t part of war.”

    Oh sure, bring it you underaged basement- dwelling Redditors. We are all so askeered of you.

    Best regards,

    A former mod.

      don’t know who these mini NUT jobbers are, but if they’re talking ‘race war’ – WTF?
      uh, sure, why not –

    Reddit prefers its libertarian sentiments tend to run white and racist.

    • Anomaly 100 August 20th, 2014 at 9:05 pm

      Unless Reddit rids itself of Libertarian mods/admins, if they unbanned FON (and later LL because we merged), I’d tell them to kiss my progressive ass.

      I want nothing to do with them. Screw them eleventy thousand ways.

      • tiredoftea August 20th, 2014 at 9:14 pm

        That’s not going to happen! I like it when you’re angry! Twelvety thousand ways is not good enough!

        • Anomaly 100 August 20th, 2014 at 9:22 pm

          Twelvety ways it is. Bring it muthafuckas!

          Seriously, I was their hardest working mod, then they banned every site affiliated with me. I want no part of them.

          • granpa.usthai August 20th, 2014 at 10:13 pm

            uh, Anomaly, did you forget and take a double dose of them hormones today? Sounds like you may be contemplating machine gunning reddit’s mini micro genitalia? -jez, that’s gotta hurt. No matter how small the loss.

          • Anomaly 100 August 21st, 2014 at 7:11 am

            Some targets are just too small.

          • Tammy Minton Haley August 21st, 2014 at 1:19 pm

            why’s it gotta be about hormones, granpa? 🙂

      • R.J. Carter August 20th, 2014 at 11:10 pm

        How many fucks do you have in your pocket, by the way?

        • tiredoftea August 21st, 2014 at 1:49 am

          I’m betting that there are no fucks, at all.

          • R.J. Carter August 21st, 2014 at 11:33 am

            I’d had it on good authority she had a whole pocketful of them. 🙂

          • tiredoftea August 22nd, 2014 at 12:58 am

            Maybe, but she gives no fucks, at all.

    • Tommy6860 August 20th, 2014 at 9:19 pm

      I started an account with them years ago. Made one or two posts, then have never been back. Aside from the very skewed party lines of much of what goes on there, it is a nightmare to peruse anyway.

      • tiredoftea August 20th, 2014 at 10:33 pm

        It takes a certain kind of person to persist on reddit.

  4. granpa.usthai August 20th, 2014 at 10:34 pm

    would reddit miniature NUT jobbers consider being a small part of backing Hashim Nzinga as a national Law Enforcement Enforcer with the empowerment of enforcing all laws as He deems necessary to keep America ‘moving along’ at His varying decided speed?

    If not, they can just go with Officer “GO FUCK YOURSELF”.

    not apt to be missing either one, all things taken into consideration.

    They will also send most articles on “accidental” gun deaths or injury to the dust bin as well in order to stifle commentary.

    The UKs Daily Mail isn’t racist but it is virulently anti-Obama. Today they’re blasting Obama for playing golf immediately after his speech about James Foley. And, of course, their American readers are foaming at the mouth in agreement. If you try to post anything defending Obama, your post will, most likely, be killed by a moderator and never see the light of day.

    They ban because they can’t handle the truth
