Please ban r/The_Donald so the transformation between Holla Forums and reddit is fully complete. God I'm begging, please just destroy it fully fuse Holla Forums with all its cancerous aspects, all the consequences of its actions, and all the 15 year olds its seduced

Please, god just do it.

Like clockwork

And they say socdems are pointless.

Cry about it bitch

Big wet sloppy tears from r/The_Donald

Post about it on your blog nobody gives a shit

Only liberals call for that "right to say it crap"

Looks like the_donald cuck is triggered. Why don't you go protest with a tiki torch about it?

That’s what you get for being such cancer. You brigade constantly, make out of place political statements, and the more extreme subs call for genocide and murder of anyone who disagrees with you.

If they were making more money instead of lazing around they wouldn't have this problem tbh :^)

so it's official: saudis treat robot women better than actual women

Go. Post somewhere else

here's an interview with the robot

What the fuck is happening with this shit?




You can come stay with me oniichans~

Someone's assmad.

Nobody can make me stop liking K-Pop.

Mad about posts?

Destroying K-Pop would be the only good thing coming out of that.

Wait people actually like Korean pop music? I thought this was just some kind of ironic internet thing I didn't get.

Holla Forums on suicide watch


nothing to see here, my fellow leftists, move along
oh boy more deepstate railroading that the Annoying Orange is gonna bend over and take more of
hahaha wut
oh boy an emergency time to let my civil liberties get fucked up the ass slightly harder because some assclown wants to look like he's making jackshit of a difference
this surely won't spread to every means of transport into and out of the US
great more r/the_cuckold rapefuges incoming

It would be funny tho

But think about the kqts!

That's legitimately a bit funny.

is that all that's left to us, a momentary feeling of smug superiority when the other side gets owned?


You know we'll be next, as the violent alt-left

'Violent alt-left'

Strategically it would benefit us if r/the_donald gets banned and becomes so inhospitable that Holla Forums's already reputation gets fucking kicked down the side of the road far enough to fall down a storm drain.

It should be banned not because I necessarily agree or believe why it is be banned, but because it should be banned regardless in interest to us.

We don't have much of a presence on reddit as the "other" kind of leftist. On the contrary, Holla Forums is absolutely infested by reddit, this would just drive it sooo fucking worse. We don't suffer from the same problems.

Terrible taste tbh lads

And I don't care how old he is, HW should be shot in the head already
Here's another article I found interesting concerning potential state response to future crises/happenings

S. Korea is the only place worse than America when it comes to vapid, consumerist culture and K-Pop is its worst embodiment.

Hard to say right now, there's nothing really linking the two together at this point. Shit's just weird, a laptop missing its hard drive…might as well have had a big red name tag on it that said "Hello! I am suspicious."


Based Kiwis

tfw Saudi Arabia values Robots over women

What do you expect

Why, some will come here. And /r/the_donald is the worst board to ever exist

Yay another non-issue to keep prols distracted.



I don’t think the hard drive had pedoshit on it. Why would you care if people found out you were a pedo if you were already dead. It probably has political content such as .pdf on it. He destroyed the hard drive to not cause his ideology to be smeared.


I wouldn't hold my breath.

Much more empathetic than the Saudi royalty.


Obama is still alive tho???

He no longer has power.

Why does Porky think here in NZ will be safe?
Not to mention we even applauded Trump's attack on that Syrian airfield and the last PM supported the US completely in this NK thing

Not by the hairs of my chinny chin chin.

Because the sheep will protect him.


wtf /r9k/ and Holla Forums love Saudis now

pls no at least let him finish his emoji language

New Zeeland? Is that the Country with shitty internet or a ban on watersports porn?

Also, there will always be dummy corporation purchases. But that do you expect from a socdem who haven't had any new ideas since 1989?

Wow, even George H W Bush is still more suave than Sam Kriss lmao

>"We understand there are sometimes reasons to post violent content (e.g., educational, newsworthy, artistic, satire, documentary, etc.) so if you're going to post something violent in nature that does not violate these terms, ensure you provide context to the viewer so the reason for posting is clear," the site said.

You have to be delusional to think any mod on Reddit will start banning "violent alt-left" posts

a tinfoil burka

What are you referring to, specifically?

I don't know wether to be laughing or cringeing at the days to come.

no nukes will be automatically fired there, safer from fallout, etc.

does anyone have a complete list of

It would mostly benefit r/the_donald. It might benefit "us" in the sense of "people wanting to spread awareness of the dangers of corporate authoritarianism", but it would simultaneously designate trumpism as the apparent solution, which doesn't exactly help.

Now, reddit banning its "leftists" would be a two birds, one stone scenario.

New Zealand confirmed for best country, get a fetish that isn't absolutely disgusting.

Friendly reminder that this is a sensationalised title. The policy is a smokescreen for the fact that they've signed the TPP and are trying to negotiate with it so that they can ban foreign speculation on housing and land, rather than just leaving the wretched pile of shit.

Stop being a moralfag.

Was there even any hope for us?

Because his term ended, dipshit.
