reddit2

Reddit moderators are actively banning users posting articles discussing Orlando nightclub terrorist Omar Mateen’s religion.

User “moonsprite” shared a screenshot of an article he posted titled, “Orlando shooting suspect may have ‘leanings’ to Islamic extremism,” to the r/news subreddit. White House Won’t Acknowledge Orlando Attack As Radical Islamic Terrorism

“SomeGuy469” tried to post an update when law enforcement officials raised the death count from 20 to 50, but the “thread was deleted before [he] could finish his comment.”

User “lets_get_hyyer” claimed to be the first to post Omar Mateed’s name, and his post was labeled as “misleading.”

“I just got banned from /r/news for posting that the Orlando shooter is a Muslim according to the FBI” moonsprite reported

User “aonf” writes that he “was banned for the same reason.”

“HyperCuriousMe” also noted that the Reddit admins “quarantined /r/european” have been censoring users for posting articles critical of Syrian immigrants.

“The SJWs (or whoever) brigaded and posted extremist neo-nazi material on there to make the sub look radical and the admins shut it down,” they explained. “The censorship takes place on the highest levels.”

On Sunday morning, Omar Mateen opened fire inside the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Fla.

Authorities reported Mateen — who called 911 and pledged allegiance to ISIS during the attack — killed 50 and injured at least 53 more.

The FBI is still investigating what exactly inspired Mateen’s attack, the deadliest shooting in United States history and the deadliest terror attack since September 11
