I hope that the actually ban the_donald as it would rally the right to find an actual alternative platform. But it's the same reason that twitter is waiting for Trump to either lose his reelection or finish his term before banning him. They are tying to ensure that we stay on their platform so that they can control the discourse.

This is one of the right's biggest weakness, we have no real control over our social media. We're completely dependent on liberal platforms, but that's why it would be a good thing for liberals to get trigger happy. Let's actually hope they go through with this. They need to deplatform us sooner rather than later as it would force our hand in more uniformity. Each time we try to find a new platform it isn't with much uniforminity and the attempt fails, we need something much harsher to happen to us to press us to find what we're looking for.

The left is getting impatient, so I hope that it will be the case that they might bite off more than they can chew. Aside from a few guys at the top, they don't seem to understand that controlling our platforms gives them a strong leverage, so kicking us off of their platforms would backfire in the long run, so the_Donald getting banned would be a big win on our part. It needs to happen.

Total leftist control of social media is a godsend for the far right.

Every time a shrieking genderfluid tranny-queer Reddit mod smugly shitcans entire communities of middle-of-the-road people for "being shitty people and literally Nazis," they're basically pushing that entire community to the right.

I mean, Jesus Christ, I remember when calling someone a NAZI meant that they were an ex concentration camp guard or an actual neo-Nazi. Now it basically means "anyone who says there are two genders and who says that Africa isn't as advanced as Europe." So, basically anyone who isn't insane.

That meme with the brown-shirted Pepe putting a noose on a SJW while saying "I just wanted to play video games" is no fucking joke... at this point, it's prophecy.

Gamergate was my redpill. It's all too fucking true. They started the war of feels.

Agreed, but The_Donald is hardly rightwing. They just arent full reddit fags.

None of the 400 upstart alternative platforms matter when they can be trivially and instantly cut off from the economy by leftist-controlled finance.
