A giant social media site shut down debate for a bone-chilling reason

Big Tech is dangerously becoming a threat to free speech.

A handful of activists are shaping narratives for the entire country.

And a giant social media site shut down debate for a bone-chilling reason.

The social media site Reddit has become a popular destination for online users to find a compendium of discussions on endless topics.

But like so many other institutions, Reddit has quickly drifted Left.

And “woke” moderators for the site want to stifle debate on counter-narrative COVID-19 discussions.

Ars Technica reports:

Last week, the moderators of over 450 subreddits joined an open letter urging Reddit to “take action against the rampant Coronavirus misinformation on their website,” saying that subreddits existing “solely to spread medical disinformation and undermine efforts to combat the global pandemic should be banned.”

Reddit published a response defending its stance, saying it will continue to allow “debate” and “dissent” on vaccines and other COVID-related matters, even when it “challenge[s] consensus views.”

“We appreciate that not everyone agrees with the current approach to getting us all through the pandemic, and some are still wary of vaccinations. Dissent is a part of Reddit and the foundation of democracy,” the company said.

To many, it’s startling how leftists are so quick to shut down debate.

However, people who understand the Left on a fundamental level understand that they don’t respect free speech for their opponent.

They believe that speech is violence, thus it must be censored.

Reddit showed that it wasn’t dedicated to free speech when the platform banned a pro-Donald Trump subreddit under dubious circumstances.

The group was banned for supposedly threatening cops, which is more Antifa’s style, not that of law and order Republicans.

The “woke” moderators at Reddit are seemingly taking a page from the editors at Wikipedia.

The online encyclopedia has taken a clear left turn over the years.

Conservative figures are often smeared as “far right” with no evidence to support the claim – citations often lead to slanted articles espousing opinions.

That’s how left-wing bias gets laundered into “fact.”

It’s clear that the establishment is deeply concerned about people looking for content outside of approved gatekeepers.

The harder platforms censor, the more trust these institutions lose.

Free speech will win in the end, and the truth will eventually get out.
