    the_donald Gets Quarantined

    I was arguing with a couple of asshole leftists on a subreddit about Walmart when the_donald, a pro President Trump subreddit, got ‘quarantined.’ So what does that mean? Well, it means that the admins of the site basically isolate the…

    You Need to Know What You’re Talking About

    Tried to post this on Dissenter, but I guess there were too many characters. Sigh. I’ve needed to make a post anyway. So I saw this on Dissenter. Gab is forking Brave, and Brave is forking furious Gab, the free-speech…
