Reddit Caught Censoring Posts Using The Term “Rothschild”

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.

George Soros Funded Think Tank Attacks Disobedient Media Over EU Coverage

It took just a few months for Disobedient Media to go from a sleepy news outlet to apparently garnering the attention of multiple power brokers on the global stage.

On February 10th, 2017, an article distributed by the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensics Lab attacked research published by Disobedient Media concerning the EU and added the Atlantic Council to a line of media houses and other outlets who deny the Wikileaks and Harvard Human Rights Journal supported research collected and published by Disobedient Media exposing the role that the Clintons and Department of State played in helping Laura Silsby and her co-conspirators off the hook after they were caught smuggling children illegally out of Haiti.

The Atlantic Council has accepted donations from funds owned by George Soros and a multitude of other foreign and domestic special interest groups, pushed harmful and imperialistic neoconservative political viewpoints to intellectuals and readers and promoted “black propaganda” now debunked by the intelligence community claiming that Russia was likely to hack the 2016 U.S. Presidential elections, and that Wikileaks is a pawn of the Russian government.

Questions Remain As Shifting Narrative, Conflicting Testimony Indicates Cover Up in Quebec Terror Incident

Witness statements and reports which conflict with the Canadian government’s account of what occurred during the tragic January 29th, 2017 Quebec terror attack at the Islamic Cultural Centre of Quebec City raise questions about what actually happened the night of the tragedy.

The evidence indicates that contrary to the official narrative, there was more than one gunman and multiple weapons were captured in the possession of arrestees. Media outlets also were so eager to claim the incident was caused by white supremacists that they were fooled into reporting false information from parody news accounts on twitter.

Interview: Rick Wilson denies involvement with Buzzfeed dossier to Disobedient Media

It’s the latest chapter in a saga of dubious news stories run by the press and later debunked once facts began to emerge.

On January 10, 2017, Buzzfeed ran an article with a dossier that they alleged showed “proof” that President Elect Donald Trump was compromised due to documentation by Russian intelligence of graphic sexual acts Mr. Trump allegedly engaged in.

The credibility of the report was almost immediately called into question. The same day that Buzzfeed’s article broke, Wikileaks tweeted that the style, facts and dates contained in the report showed “no credibility” and cast doubt on Buzzfeed’s claims. Wikileaks’ assertions came at the same time as an article in The Atlantic where Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, denied that he had ever been to either the Czech Republic or to Russia as the “dossier” published by Buzzfeed claimed. Cohen stated that he was not in Prague secretly meeting with Russian officials Buzzfeed’s dossier alleged he had been. He explained that he had actually been in New York and had taken a trip to Los Angeles with his son from August 23rd to the 29th. A USC baseball source confirmed that Cohen had been visiting USC with his son on August 29th.

Compounding matters was the emergence of claims on online messageboard 4chan that users on their /pol/ (Politically Incorrect) board had authored and fed the dossier to GOP political strategist Rick Wilson, who allegedly passed the information on to the CIA, political figures, and news sources before Buzzfeed finally decided to publicize it.

I reached out to Mr. Wilson to give him the opportunity to clear his name. He gave me a brief interview over Twitter to answer a few of my questions.

Q: Where did Buzzfeed get its information from, if not you?

Wilson: No idea, I never saw it before their report. I first heard about its content on July 2nd.

Q: If you aren’t involved in this, then why do people say you are?

Wilson: Because 4chan is trolling you.

Q: Where and who did you first hear about its content from

Wilson: Not your business.

Q: Do you believe author worked for M16? If so, why?

Wilson: Yes, as does the intelligence community.

Q: Any comment on Wikileaks’ analysis and dismissal of the intel report as fake?

Wilson: Wikileaks is a Russian Intel Operation. I have no further opinion.

In summary, Wilson claims to not be the source who gave Buzzfeed their information. He insists that the dossier is authentic, despite very obvious inconsistencies in its formatting, classification terminology and lack of official watermarks and claims the “intelligence community” finds it authentic as well. And apparently Wikileaks is nothing more than a Russian intelligence plot, despite their flawless track record and the fact that they have never once had to retract a release in their history. Until further facts emerge, Wilson’s exact role in the episode remains to be seen.

If Wilson’s connection to the Buzzfeed dossier were to be definitively established, it would be the second such incident where he has almost fallen for fraudulent capers. Politico reported in August 2016 that Wilson was one of several individuals targeted in an online fraud scheme.
