Fuck Sam Biddle. You can tell he has an agenda from the very begining , his attitude and choice of words is an embarrassment to journalism. Now maybe I understand the position against gawker. He was going good discussing the subject but to add an 8chan post and try to add zionism to the issue to get some attention, all I can say is fuck off. seriously find something else to bang. The only issue here is admins/mods abusing power regardless of why they do it, the issue is abuse of power. Sam Biddle is trying to draw people in to this debate and pandering to emotions he feels can get on his side. I would advise him to do a bit more research and just a little more reading up on what is happening. I am not one for publicity but if someone wants to call him out publicly for this pathetic article please do!

Sorry - I mean Sam Biddle, image was by Jim Cooke, I changed it to reflect that. sorry Jim

I really don't care much for the issue but for so called "journalist" to spin it to get attention or to try and push an agenda is a real piss off. These people have audiences that take what they write as gospel and they should be held accountable!

Fired? For an article like that, they probably made him the new CEO.

This is a poorly-written propaganda piece. For example, here's this portion that demonstrates a very specific agenda. This part reveals how the article is designed for several narratives: 1)paint Voat.co as a site for 'right-wing radicalism' (As he mentions in the comments about its so-called "rise in America"). 2) paint all potential worry as just another anti-Semitic anti-feminist conspiracy, 3) paint all people worried against censorship as anti-gay.

For example, there's this part: "The perpetual bogey(wo)man of the right wing internet fringe is the SJW". That isn't really true. Consistent leftists really dislike SJWs as they perpetuate identitarian conflict, acting as petit bourgeois that continually create difference and who highlight the importance of separation.

What's up with the Zionist part? Zionism wasn't a point of any of the reddit threads. Sam solidifies himself as a shit-quality journalist hit man. Anyone who knows about chan culture knows about the populist anti-semitism of some /pol/ commentators. All kinds are at /pol/. Neither the previous reddit nor voat threads mention anything about "da Jewish conspiracy"! To bring in Zionism or "Jews" makes this an obviously sloppy attempt at manipulating the actual conspiracy- a group is slowly taking over subreddits and banning people- into one that is just a "Oh, but they're just all Zionist Jewish feminists because look at this one person said!" In light of his shoddy journalism, it is obvious that the entire article is designed to misdirect actually honest insight onto a false narrative.

Why else would Sam put the words "Zionist" and "white supremacist and general racism discussion zone", when neither racism nor Zionism was being actually discussed? It is clear that he is getting paid to purposefully obfuscate the actual message of a terrible atmosphere fostering at Reddit. Gawker, and respective partners, must paint everyone who questions their narratives as just 'conspiratorial anti-Semitic right-wing radicals'. He is certainly a puppet. Just how far he's down the rabbit hole is unknown.

Exactly what I was thinking. The fact he showed an 8chan post to bolster his point of anti-zionism was a good laugh, so pathetic!!! He has no hold on the reality of 8chan sarcasm , jokes in general, and internet humor but he wants to go about writing an article about it......very sad.

Archive link.

Please don't give them page hits. They use those stats to get advertisers.

Yes indeed. Please never use an unarchived link for a clickbait website. They don't deserve even pennies for clickbait articles.

Thank you. I was looking through the comments hoping to find an archived link.

Just ran out of upvotes. I'm going to come back and upvote your comment when I get some more.

I'm a diehard liberal and I voted/campaigned for a lesbian premier that wants to teach consent (not sexual consent) to 1st graders.

Even I clearly see the attempt by SJWs to co-opt and ruin everything in their wake (but I still can't see why kids love Cinnamon Toast Crunch). It's not some "secret" conspiracy as the post on reddit says and Sam Biddle mocks it to be.

SJWs are pretty damn open about their goal to censor shit that rustles their jimmies even the slightest.

Same here. I'm on the extreme liberal side of things, and seeing what groups of radicals are doing on sites like reddit, twitter and tumbler terrifies me.

I've seen these people broadly claim (without a shred of irony) that everyone who doesn't share their beliefs should be silenced / harassed.

That about sums it up. Even when they have people discovering how bad moderator corruption is they can still only clickbait as hard as possible.

Can we all agree to use archive.today for gawker sties to deny them vists and ad revenue?

These scumbags don't even deserve the potential 1/1000th of cent they get from my visit.
