Reddit’s community dedicated to disseminating vicious invective about black people may be safe, but (at least one of) its jew-hating communities has finally gotten the boot. Yes, r/GasTheKikes is finally dead. And not an hour later, r/KikeTown popped right up to take its place.

At the very least, this means that Reddit’s administrators are finally making good on their word to ban “anything that incites harm or violence against an individual or group of people.” Which is nice but ultimatel meaningless gesture. Because as Reddit’s tenacious coterie of biggots has already shown us—they’re not giving up that easy.

And because the new r/KikeTown doesn’t explicitly call for the extermination of the Jews (much like the eternally protected r/CoonTown), odds are its not going anywhere.

So congratulations, Reddit. Your wholly performative harassment policy is working perfectly.
