Very valid point. Lots of other online forums have suffered the same treatment. The attackers usually follow the same script:

1 post something super racist

2 upvote said post to top spot

3 discredit the site by calling them out on racist post - "see this shit they upvote?"

The charge brought against him by the US is for revealing war crimes.

Smells of planned trolling to me.

The idea that Tencent buys <10% of reddit and is able to implement censorship on day 1 is really hard to believe, sorry.

The reward Ecuador collected:

On February 21, 2019, the Ecuadorian government inked a deal for a total of $10.2 billion in IMF loans.

yup, very refreshing. The fact that it's #1 on saidit/s/all is also proof that the mic's 'perception correctors' still haven't poisoned saidit.

I hope it lasts.

I agree 100%, reddit is heavily manipulated - but a minor stake in a $2+ billion company doesn't change who's running the show. Reddit is still a US company, operating on US soil, and its management and top-admins and hw and servers are all at the physical mercy of only one government - and it's not the Chinese.

Then just hrs after the investment was announced some admins "admit" they censor content to please their new Chinese overlords - I just can't bring myself to believe it. Seems crazy that the old media-manipulation machinery would roll over that easily.

However, if I was a professional perception-controller (with n ntrepid licenses) and I wanted to spook a western audience about the great new menace of China - I would do just that... make fake claims about "them taking over" to trigger a standard "were not gonna let them!" reaction.

That's just my random thoughts. There are so many layers of deception on reddit that I take nothing there at face value.

Should Saidit be hosted in Norway or Switzerland? by magnora7 in AskSaidIt

well, Norway is a core NATO member (unlike Sweden) and interacts even more deeply with the NSA:

I'd be surprised if their network traffic isn't 100% exposed to US surveillance.

weird, not a single mention of the 2002 coup anywhere, which was so very similar.

Top question if the US media was free and actually did their job: How much did the "National Endowment for Democracy" pay up this time? In 2002 they brazenly backed the military coup with millions, despite valid & democratic elections.

The WaPo story is downright scary. You know "foreign meddling" has gone to a new level when the editorial board of your capital's main newspaper serves foreign interests.

Suddenly Fox has more credibility than everyone else.

Book burnings don't always look like this... by useless_aether in FascismWatch

For another recent example of modern book burning, check out the fate of "gekaufte journalisten" (journalists for hire)

A fake publisher in Oakland made sure the English version never happened. Sinister stuff. Makes one wonder how many other books have been successfully removed in the same stealthy/covert way.
