Reddit is funded by the Wildensteins, the Van Valkenburgs, the Stepfords, and the 5 richest kings of Europe. Of course they're part of the Deep State.

It's because kids on Reddit want to be be at the forefront of new trends. Now that everyone is asking about QAnon they're all too cool for school to be involved anymore.

That's nonsense. It's a well-known fact, sonny-jim, that there's a secret society of the 5 wealthiest people in the world, known as The Pentavirate, who run everything in the world including Reddit, and meet tri-annually in a secret country mansion in Colorado known as The Meadows.

QAnon seems to be under some kind of ban on 4chan. Pro-QAnon posters get the kind of industrial strength abuse that 4chan is famous for before they get taken down.

You know what the difference between Q and The Lord of the Rings? One is a completely made up fantasy. And the other is The Lord of the Rings.

Qanon has identifiable and specific details.  The other two are nebulous concepts that can't be easily targeted or suppressed.

I believe that has something to do with the fact that there is a growing body of evidence that Q is not a government agent, but rather a marketing stunt created by the owners of 8chan/8kun to increase traffic to their site.

And we all know that "The Meadows" is code for child exploitation.

Also, FTA: "They also started posting threats to murder Hillary Clinton, inspired, they said, by their rage over her superhuman ability to make military planes fall out of the sky."  Just... what?  I never heard that one before.

When they shut down a toxic subreddit like r/the_donald the users don't just disappear, they move on and take over other subreddits like r/conservative which is full of articles about how bad minorities are and the comment section is absolutely cancerous.

Reddit's policies have largely been about PR and damage control.  They finally nuked the_dipshiat, but the far-right slime has just gone elsewhere.  Conspiracy and actualpublicfreakout are two of their biggest havens.  Worldnews and Europe have always been havens for xenophobia and islamophobia.  Conservative is hilarious as the ultimate safe space for right-wing snowflakes.

At least the sports and nerddom subreddits mostly keep the troglodytes from dragging in their fecal matter.

Because Reddit is too difficult of a platform for a mouth breathing moron who thinks Hillary Clinton is a high ranking member of the Church of Satan and is running a child slave trade to navigate?

 What gets me about Qtips is that they believe that Trump is secretly battling this so-called cabal of baby-eaters. Does anyone here really believe that Trump would be quiet about anything? He can't stop praising himself even for little things he didn't do.
 
2020-09-25 10:18:05 PM  
The most obvious-and least replicable-factor in Reddit's success is its timing. Reddit's QAnon problem started several years ago, before QAnon became as much a part of offline culture as it was a part of online culture.

Basically the reason it's not using reddit as a host anymore because it's gone airborne.

On the plus side Reddit isn't an echo chamber circling the drain in to a syphon of shiat, unlike this place, so at least there's that.

I don't think there's any growing evidence of this at all. I think it's completely understood as the truth.

Being prepared for potential disasters is never a bad idea.

That said, preppers are insane almost by definition. Billions of people ride bicycles, but only a tiny handful go so deep they go around attacking parked cars. Billions of people play video games, but only a tiny handful die of a heart attack 78 hours into an mmorpg event at an internet cafe. Billions of people prepare for disasters that might drive them from their home, but only a tiny handful wind up digging a fallout shelter and filling it with dehydrated nutrient paste and rifle rounds waiting for Obama to come for their guns.

Probably because there wasn't enough QAnon porn or QAnon memes. That seems to be the fuel that Reddit runs on.

I remember going through a short lived Illuminati conspiracy around 98-00.  I was 16-18, so that's my excuse.

To imagine that 20 years later someone could exploit stupid young me doesn't surprise me, but to crank the conspiracies to 11 and make them all reinforce each other is kind of impressive.  Not to mention a lot of QTips are well over 40.

Because the Satanic Panic never subsided, it just went underground, until it found a new community on the internet in moronic Tea Partiers and Evangelicals who are so caught up in the "cosmic battle of good vs evil" that they are genuinely worried that Lucifer's armies are about to take over the Earth any day now, and its only their vigilance that keeps him at bay.

Speaking of the Satanic Panic... I moved to my town in my senior year of high school.... I kept meeting other kids that were like,"I'm not in school, they kicked me out" and that was weird because they seemed pretty freaking normal (punk rock light... MTV punks), turns out they were all 'SATANISTS'... you know, except they weren't, but yeah maybe 7 people I know were done with school by 10th grade (they got GeDs and stuff tho).

Now there is a story idea. The Final Battle starts and Hellmouths all over the world disgorge millions of demons armed with huge swords and maces and stuff like that.

10 foot tall flesh and blood, very obvious demons.

Turns out, nobody in Hell was doing due diligence and they don't know about things like preppers, assault rifles, and surplus Claymore mines.

Not to mention A-10 Warhogs, B-52 carpet bombing, napalm. and nukes.

And then we find out that Hell has oil.

Pretty sure someone MUST have written this plot.
