Discord bans pro-Trump server ‘The Donald’

Discord has banned a server known as “The Donald,” a pro-Trump neighborhood linked to banned subreddit r/The_Donald and TheDonald.win. The information was first reported by Platformer author (and Verge contributor) Casey Newton.

The ban comes two days after a pro-Trump mob stormed the US Capitol, inspired by President Trump, although Discord says that it has no proof that the server was used to arrange the riots.

“Now we have a zero-tolerance coverage in opposition to hate and violence of any form on the platform, or using Discord to help or arrange round violent extremism,” Discord mentioned in a press release shared with GadgetClock. “Whereas there isn’t any proof of a server known as The Donald getting used to arrange the Jan 6 riots, Discord determined to ban the complete server right now as a result of its overt connection to a web based discussion board used to incite violence, plan an armed riot in the USA, and unfold dangerous misinformation associated to 2020 U.S. election fraud.”

Reddit banned pro-Trump subreddit r/The_Donald in June following an growth of its insurance policies to ban hate speech extra explicitly. The Donald’s Discord server was one of many locations former r/The_Donald members congregated following the ban, as detailed on this Mom Jones article from October.

Reddit additionally banned unofficial pro-Trump subreddit r/donaldtrump on Friday “given repeated coverage violations in current days relating to the violence on the US Capitol.”
