What good is Reddit if they allow extreme-left activists to moderate?

Bounding Into Comics informs that Reddit has a political problem that's led to Mike Baron's Thin Blue Line being banned for supposed "misinformation and racism":
An activist moderator on the popular /r/Comics subreddit, which boasts membership of over 1.7 million readers, banned promotion of prolific comic book creator Mike Baron’s new book Thin Blue Line for “misinformation and racism.”

User /u/thebleedingfool shared an article from The Federalist, where Baron promoted the book while also talking about his history with comics and his views on the current state of law enforcement.

In response to the sharing of this article /r/Comics moderator SickBurnBro replied to the original posting writing, “Hello thebleedingfool! Unfortunately, your submission has been removed for the following reason(s): Misinformation and racism.”

The moderator added, “If you feel that your submission has been removed in error, please message us so we can take a look. Thanks!”
This isn't even the first time a Baron book experienced censorship shunning on Reddit forums. As noted almost a year earlier, they banned a campaign for crowdfunding his Florida Man graphic novel too. This is the 2nd time I know of where some unseen leftist on Reddit censored citation of a Baron story, and it indicates something is terribly wrong. Especially if no other creators in the industry are willing to come to his defense.

What good is a site like Reddit, really, if this kind of activist employment is allowed unquestioned by the main staff? Thank goodness I don't have an account on their site to date. All they're doing is proving another example of what happens when leftists increasingly deal in blacklisting.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
