Disqus Will Fight Hate Speech By Censoring Comments On Other Websites
(Last Updated On: February 9, 2017)

The Regressive agenda continues to bleed its way through the United States’ Constitution like strawberry filling on a Maxi Pad. The next step to taking away the right to express oneself on an open platform has been put into place with a new Hate Speech enforcement policy by Disqus, the same comment section utility that we use on this very site.

Over on the official Disqus blog, Mario Paganini explained that they’re targeting hate speech across websites that use their platform, saying…

“Recently, many passionate users have reached out to us regarding instances of hate speech across our network. Language that offends, threatens, or insults groups solely based on race, color, gender, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, or other traits is against our network terms and has no place on the Disqus network”

Paganini explains that sometime in the near future they will release tools for users and publishers to utilize in order to curb hate speech. Previously there used to be a visible downvote button that was used to lower the comment appearance of comments people didn’t like, much like Reddit. However, the Regressive agenda was usually silenced with this tactic, so they had to find another way to keep their voices heard while also silencing the opposition.

Social Justice Warriors hate facts and hate it even more when opinions they don’t agree with are based on irrefutable facts. Hence, their next best thing is to label speech and opinions they don’t like as “hate speech”.

YouTube, Facebook and Twitter have previously enacted their enforcement against hate speech, resulting in a lot of content being censored and pulled from the networks, including YouTube actively and forcibly attempting to shut down accounts discussing the facts of PizzaGate, labeling such videos as “harassment”. And Twitter has been actively censoring and suspending right wing Conservatives on their platform. Facebook even censored posts that were critical of the SJW’s censorship movement, as reported by the Daily Mail.

YouTube, Facebook and Twitter will also be utilizing a “Terrorist Content” ban list throughout 2017 to ensure that certain subject matter never makes it to the public light.

According to Paganini, if a website doesn’t enforce censorship on their own audience, the Disqus team will step in to do the censoring, writing…

“We will enforce our terms of service by removing hate speech and harassment on our network. To report hate speech and other abusive behavior, please follow these instructions.

“To support this philosophy, we will also be supporting organizations that are equipped to fight hate speech outside of Disqus. We are exploring several options and plan to dedicate portions of our advertising profits to fight hate speech.”

The blog post was sent to publishers running websites using the Disqus platform. Many of the comments are extremely critical of this move, as they point out that a lot of Regressive SJWs have been trying to get the comment sections on Breitbart shut down and many opposing viewpoints to the Regressive agenda censored. Well, now Disqus may step in to help with that agenda as they will be utilizing their position to oversee and censor content on other websites.

    You could, I don’t know, just shut up instead.

      ooohhh .. and SJW 😀

  • former expat

    No great loss, then.

    I wouldn’t hold my breath. Disqus seems to be eating everybody’s lunch in the comment app space.

    I’m going to take a picture of this, so I can verify that I posted it

    Disqus and Facebook and Google are all related. when I try to post with my google account, my Disqus account comes up, instead. Same with Facebook.

    It’s all part of In-Q-Tel’s plan to control internet content. Comments were a way of unapproved content being distributed. Now, with comments controlled, they have a much stronger way of making sure that facts won’t interfere with their distribution of Fake News.

    Let’s see if this comment stands. I’ll copy it before posting, just in case….

    • Your comment should be fine here. I don’t think Disqus can overwrite administrators (I hope?) and so far I can uncensor, undelete and unflag comments from the backend. There have been comments suspiciously moved to the “Spam” folder when they contained no links, and I as I mentioned in another thread there are the typical SJW brigades who will come into an anti-SJW article and mass-flag comments, but so far Disqus hasn’t overstepped their bounds with this site.

      • margaret Bartley

        Let’s see if replying here makes a difference. When I just posted a comment, it was marked as spam

        • Wow, your comment was marked as spam due to due “low rep” even without having a link included. That’s pretty scummy of Disqus. Usually people with low-reps still get to post unless their rep is in the red range.

          • margaret Bartley

            Thank you for that – I never knew about the “low rep” thing. Did you manually reinstate the comments? The last time I looked, they were not here, and were marked in my profile as spam.

          • I occasionally check spam/pending and manually approve comments when Disqus decides to censor them or block them for whatever reason. You can think of this place as a safe haven (for now).

  • Harold Hawes

    Why, on God’s Green Earth, are you complaining about Disqus when you’re using it yourself?????
    Internet troll, maybe?

  • former expat

    Disqus owns the system and it’s how they make their living. If you insist on pissing on the furniture, they have every right to throw you out.

      plus it will prove that freedom of speech is not for everyone – the fingerpointer websites censored me far more than conservative ones.

      and breitbart has been out for weeks on disqus’ own site – due to “low activity” but even the White House is banning Breitbart – it doesn’t matter to me – I just posted there when I would get censored from regular websites.

      • former expat

        “Regular websites” being the operative term.

        • JEng

          I only looked at breitbart when their headlines were featured on drudgereport but this is the message on

    I bet disqus won’t be sacking their paid trolls .
    No they don’t like people knowing about that

  • giygas

    The term “hate speech” itself needs to be banned.

  • Okay, guess it’s time to delete my Disqus account.

    Here’s hoping you can figure out a way to have your own comment section with its own rules, independent of these authoritarians [email protected]

    • Ethan42

      I remember telling a user on this site that at one point Disqus was acting like a punk and wouldn’t let me comment for days. Now Disqus has gone full retard… don’t go full retard.

      • JEng

        I never minded the downtimes and I often didn’t repost what was spammed – sometimes disqus will blow out on me if I write about the KMT so I just use it to reflect on how important that comment is and do I want to repost it somewhere.

    • I’d say hold off for now on deleting your account. I haven’t found a viable alternative to Disqus just yet that doesn’t slow down the site drastically. One highlight of Disqus is that it’s pretty darn fast, and so far they haven’t impeded on the discussions on this site. So until they do I think *this* site is partially safe… for now.

    • JEng

      they just switch to a less popular comment service or facebook – I think it not only censors comments but it also anonymizes comments – which means I am going to have to repost most of my comments so I can keep an accurate record but also it means that I will probably upload everything. It’s hypocritical to censor disqus but that’s really the nature of the times.

  • AgentBJ09

    All the more reason to screenshot my posts from now on just in case they censor me.
