Ellen Pao: “We Knew” Ghislaine Maxwell Trafficked Underage Girls

pao

Former Reddit CEO Ellen Pao admitted in a tweet “we knew” about Ghislaine Maxwell sex trafficking underage girls but attended a party where Maxwell was present anyway.

“Pao, a former partner at venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins, said Maxwell was at the firm’s holiday party in 2011, more than two years after Epstein was first convicted of soliciting sex from a 14 year old,” reports Business Insider.

“[Maxwell] was at the Kleiner holiday party in 2011, but I had no desire to meet her much less have a photo taken with her,” Pao tweeted last night. “We knew about her supplying underage girls for sex, but I guess that was fine with the ‘cool’ people who managed the tightly controlled guest list.”

Reddit Says It Will Allow Hate Speech Against “People Who Are in the Majority”

reddit2

After The Donald subreddit was banned by Reddit, users drew attention to the site’s policy on hate speech, which explicitly does not protect “people who are in the majority.”

Although it had been largely inactive for months after the owners set up TheDonald.win, Reddit banned the forum which was home to over 800,000 Trump supporters.

This occurred on the same day that streaming site Twitch temporarily suspended President Trump’s channel for “hate speech”.

An interesting caveat to emerge out of Reddit’s censorship is that the site’s section on Promoting Hate Based on Identity or Vulnerability explicitly states that hate speech is still permitted towards “people who are in the majority.”

A leftist Redditor in Seattle complained Saturday that his car was smashed up by rioters after he spent all day bringing “supplies” for them and using his “white face” to “block intersections off from the cops.”

Too bad you didn’t have the time to explain to the mob that you were “white allies”!

Dem Senator Ron Wyden Pushed For Censoring President on SubReddit

wyden

Democratic Senator Ron Wyden pushed for the censorship of ‘the Donald’ subreddit just weeks before it was ‘quarantined’ by Reddit.

As we reported on Wednesday, Reddit quarantined the forum, which is often a pre-cursor to a total ban, claiming that comments inciting violence had not been deleted promptly enough by moderators.

Moderators hit back by claiming they were doing everything to delete comments which broke TOS as quickly as possible.

Now it has emerged that Wyden pressured Reddit CEO Steve Huffman to censor the Donald by claiming the forum was “inciting the hatred that is eroding our democracy”.

The remark was made by Wyden during a joint AMA (Ask Me Anything) with Huffman on June 5.

Wyden followed up by saying, “it would be good to see Mr. Huffman and Reddit to do more work to moderate such behavior”.

A Reddit user was banned by moderators from the r/socialism forum for being white.

A screenshot of the message reads, “You have been banned from participating in r/socialism,” with a note from moderators which simply says “white”.

When the user asked, “White? What does that mean?” the moderator responded, “No whites allowed”.

Reddit Page Bans Whites From Posting

reddit

A Reddit page dedicated to black issues has declared that white people are no longer allowed to post there anymore.

The forum, r/BlackPeopleTwitter, posted an “important announcement,” which stated, “Due to the overwhelming number of white people and white opinions present on BTP, we are now restricting access to this sub for black folks only.”

Non-black people then responded to the post by humiliating themselves, embracing their white guilt, and begging to be allowed to post again.

“Super white dude here. I’d like to apply for the token white guy position,” responded one white user. “I won’t post or comment unless you all want to say something like “this sub isn’t racist we have a white guy.”

David Hogg Reddit Post Celebrated Mosquito Killing “Billions”

In a 2017 Reddit post, ‘March For Our Lives’ gun control activist David Hogg celebrates the fact that mosquitoes kill “billions” of people as being “great for the environment”.

Another user on the site asked the question, “What is a positive reason for mosquitoes to exist?” to which Hogg responded, “They kill humans, billions of them, which is great for the environment.” The post was made eight months ago.
Although the entry was posted under the pseudonym ‘davisgreen111’, the account almost certainly belongs to Hogg. The poster refers to himself as “David Hogg” in one post and another post links to a video from Hogg’s personal YouTube channel. Another post confirms that he lives in Parkland, Florida.

Reddit Imposes Gun Control by Pairing Gun Sales With Illegal Drug Sales

Reddit’s bid to clean up its communities now includes what those communities trade. The social site has updated its policies to ban the trade of firearms, explosives, drugs (including alcohol and tobacco), services with “physical sexual contact,” stolen goods, personal info and counterfeits. Accordingly, Reddit has shut down numerous subreddits that either directly traded in these goods or were clearly meant to enable those exchanges, including r/gunsforsale, r/stealing (yes, it existed) and r/darknetmarkets.

 

The site also stressed that it doesn’t bear responsibility for transactions for those goods you are allowed to offer. Reddit was “not intended to be used as a marketplace,” and it’s your duty to be sure the other side of the deal is honest.

Reddit said the bans weren’t prompted by any specific actions on the part of the newly closed communities, and that it won’t take action against communities where trades aren’t the focus. However it comes amid widespread concern over easy access to guns in the wake of shootings. It’s safe to say the company would rather not be accused of enabling future tragedies or other crimes. There’s also the simple matter of Reddit’s bottom line: it doesn’t want to deter advertisers worried their campaigns will be attached to guns and drugs. What it loses in angry users it might make up in increased ad sales.

Desperate-to-Be Famous Leftists Claim Credit For Texas Bombings

cops.JPG

A mysterious social media user claims to be behind the bombings that have terrorized Texas in recent weeks, vowing that he won’t stop until he becomes “as prolific as the Zodiac Killer.”

“My intention is not to kill people. I am doing this simply because I want to watch the world burn,” someone using the handle “austinbomber” posted on Reddit Tuesday.

The anonymous user made a string of disturbing messages in which he compared himself to the Zodiac, the notorious serial killer who was never caught or identified even though he murdered at least five people in California in the 1960s and ’70s.

The self-professed Austin bomber denied suggestions that the attacks are racially motivated.
