Reddit criticized as an anti-Arab, anti-Muslim racist social media
By Ray Hanania
After being excluded from Reddit repeatedly, and communicating with dozens of other Arabs and Muslims in the U.S. and in the Middle East, it’s clear that Reddit is run by a pack of racist Arab-hating and Muslim hating activists who manage and control the content to fabricate the impression of “majority rules.”
Reddit is a social media system that allows users to post links to news stories — if accepted and approved by the Reddit Centurion monitors — and that are then judged by other users who give the posts Up Votes and Down Votes. In essence, it is much like a lynch mob that decides what it likes and what it doesn’t like, a group of haters fed by Reddit’s owners.
Reddit has banned dozens of articles that criticize Israel, one of its sacred crowds.
Reddit is an unwelcoming community driven by xenophones, racist and haters who rant and attack but do not want to be criticized by those that they criticize. Critics of Reddit are banned, harrassed and expelled from Reddit on the false claim that when they logged in their account was hacked, or “suspicious.”
It’s a technique Reddit uses to try to avoid obvious racist targeting. The excuse they use to ban a user is that their account has been hacked. They then proceed to extend the ban indefinitely, hoping you will go away. The exclusions and banning is decided by a small group of conspirators who decide who and what remains on their system.
Reddit moderates basically control your language, deternining what is acceptable based on their personal and Reddit World political views, and what is unacceptable. You have no power to challenge the bigots who run Reddit. But as long as you are willing to surrender your rights to their racist attitudes and subtle hate-driven political agenda, you can join the system.
Many former Reddit users have alleged that Reddit also artificially Up Votes and Down Votes user posts based not on the “Majority Rules” principle but rather ont heir own subjective, partisan and biased measures. They don’t like it, they artificially add 100 Down Votes to the post to bury it, suggesting that 100 independent minded people voted to down vote something. The truth is that a small group of conspirators and haters make that decision.
They don’t do it on everything, but they target issues like Israel, like criticism of Zionism, and criticism of Israel’s racist government.
Reddit was founded by University of Virginia roommates Steve Huffman and Alexis Ohanian in 2005. Condé Nast Publications acquired the site in October 2006. In 2011, Reddit became an independent subsidiary of Condé Nast’s parent company, Advance Publications.
They claim the content on Reddit is “user-generated” but I suspect they are lying. It’s my opinion –I’m just an award winning former Chicago City Hall reporter who has four Peter Lisagor writing awards, a Sigma Delta Chi writing award and a New America Media national award under my belt and apparently in the eyes of Reddit’s racist manipulators, I’m not what they are looking for. It’s probably because I am a Christian Palestinian who is married to a Jewish wife with a Jewish son. Thatbothers them, apparently.
Well, I am tired of being bullied by Reddit’s racist owners and moderators and centurians of biased hate.
F-U, Reddit. The world can revolve without you. I invite other anti-Reddit champions to join in to expose Reddit for the corrupt cancerous social media system that it is.
Let’s see iof Reddit has the Kahones to put this on their racist, anti-Arab, Anti-Muslim social media site for discussion. Of course, they have blocked and banned their critics so it will get a rigged Down Vote. But what goes around Reddit comes around. That’s the real Karma!
