In related news: Trump-fanclub T_D was supporting the GOP in Oregon and posting death threats to Democrat politicians and this was what finally caused Reddit to put their sub in quarantine.

Obviously they didn't delete the sub and ban the people who made death threats. That would have been going too far or something... Still, this crazy story once again escalated into something unexpected.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Unlike you, I'm not gonna defend death threats from anybody. T_D's a massive circlejerk anyway, so it's no great loss.

Yeah T_D has the muh free speech crying job covered themselves already. They flooded r/legaladvice with threads about being suppressed by evil reddit admins and the mods over there had to go overdrive on the deletions to curb it.

Well, State Senate Republicans ended their walkout... just in time to pass a budget bill (where the Governor was threatening to strip any special appropriations that would go to their districts) and have the regular session adjourn on Saturday.

It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?

Being required by someone else’s religious beliefs to behave contrary to one’s sexual identity is degrading and disrespectful.

I'd agree with them if the subreddit's mods were actively cracking down on the death threats and calls for violence. But AFAIK, they weren't, so...

speaking of reasons why they were quarantined... the Donald had people posting (and upvoting) a post labelled "this must survive" featuring a white family, which is very reminiscent of well, the 14 words. They eren't too happy when this was pointed out by TMoR.
