It’s the latest chapter of the long, documented saga of Reddit censorship against various forms of political speech over the past several years. In a humorous development, Reddit’s admin team has been caught censoring posts using the term “Rothschild.”
Users on pro-Trump subreddit r/the_donald began noticing the censorship several days ago after a humorous tweet from Lynn de Rothschild on February 21st, 2017 lampooned John Podesta for his work managing Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential election campaign. A test conducted by Disobedient Media on February 23rd has confirmed that Reddit is indeed censoring content referencing the name of the famous banking family.
A sample post referencing the term was immediately archived after submission. Despite being posted “just now” or under one minute prior, the archive revealed that a filter on Reddit had removed the text of the post and hidden it from the “new” section of r/the_donald. The original post and the text can be seen here:
When the account which made the post is logged in, the original text still appears in the body as if the post was not censored. This means that a user might not immediately notice that their posting had been removed.
It is not known at this time why Reddit is censoring posts referencing the Rothschild family name.
Editor’s Note: Other posts around Reddit appear to not be censored, indicating that the script removing post information mentioning the term “Rothschild” may be targeting r/the_donald exclusively. Reddit’s admin team and CEO Steve Huffman have singled the pro-Trump subreddit out exclusively for censorship in the past.
While the mainstream media’s attention has been fixed on political drama in Washington D.C., federal and state law enforcement have been quietly working to dismantle a shockingly large number of human trafficking and child abuse networks across the United States. The busts in America come at the same time as a number of other successful international law enforcement operations against networks engaging in human trafficking of women and children.
On February 13th, 2017 residents in Oroville, CA, were given a last second, panicked directive to evacuate their homes and flee the area due to concerns that the Oroville dam was about to imminently fail. At the time of this article, the dam has still not yet failed. Should it fail though, California’s government may face tough questions about their failure to adequately prepare for a disaster they had been warned about for over a decade.
On February 10th, 2017, Donald Trump’s Justice Department delivered an unredacted copy of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence’s Study of the Central Intelligence Agency’s (CIA) Detention and Interrogation Program to a federal court vault after it was requested via court order, according to legal documents.
The report outlined Senate criticisms of the Bush administration’s “War on Terror” in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on the World Trade Centers and Pentagon building. The damning report documents abuses in the CIA program indicating that intelligence officers waterboarded, rectally abused captives and held at least 119 foreign prisoners out of reach of the International Red Cross or attorneys.

Starbucks recently caught some flak when the company stepped up its virtue marketing by publicly vowing to hire 10 000 refugees, signalling opposition to the Trump administration’s 90-day-travel-ban. With Republicans all over the country now boycotting the brand, even though Starbucks made the same vow in 2015 regarding veterans, one could say that move backfired.
