We haven't done much work at reddit, but currently there appears to be a big antisemitic conspiracy theory brewing over there, and somehow we have become the most popular link being shared at the moment, and are on the front page of reddit.com!
Thanks to that, today marks our most heavily trafficked day since we went public with our activities in May, 2008. Tens of thousands of people are visiting our site, and we'd just like to say, "welcome!"
While it appears most of the folks at reddit have very little to say other than "F Israel," if we can get even a few new people to learn about our work, great! By the looks of things, there certainly appears to be a lot of work to do at reddit.com!
So, if any of our current supporters would like to go there and read the idiocy people are saying about Israel, Jews, and the JIDF, you can click here and check it out!
We urge you to downvote the antisemitic, idiotic, and anti-Israel comments! Make all their worst antisemitic conspiracy theory nightmares come true!
Within 10 minutes of this post going up, it seems the folks at reddit removed the post linking to our site from the front page and from the politics section. Some have commented upon it (see here and here). We're not sure what is up with that. Again, just to clarify, the original post is false. Reddit has barely been on our radar. It was not really on our radar until that post. Now that the post has been pulled from the popular areas of the site, many will continue to believe the false, antisemitic conspiracy theory about us.
After the 2nd update, a new link was submitted, accusing reddit of "disgusting assault on free speech." It seems like the entire place is abuzz with paranoid insanity, people making false accusations against Reddit, Israel, Jews, the JIDF, etc. That link was quickly brought to the its front page or Reddit as well.
All of this has helped make yesterday and today the biggest traffic days we've ever had. Unfortunately, it's not the traffic we want, as we're getting swamped with antisemitic emails and comments. People who have absolutely no clue what they are talking about are accusing us as being worse than Nazis. It's the typical idiocy, harassment, and antisemitism we have encountered for many years now.
We'd just like to point out, again, that Reddit was barely on our radar prior to the first conspiracy theory that went up about us, yesterday. We posted our response here to mock the whole thing. At this point, we actually don't care if people upvote or downvote anything at Reddit. The entire place seems like a sea of stupidity and insanity. It's hilarious how many people go out of their way to say that they have no problem with Jews, but they are critical of Israel. However, they don't really get into any valid criticism of Israel---they just feel the need to offer that disclaimer. This is the new way antisemites rationalize their antisemitism, by explaining "we don't hate Jews the old fashioned way, we hate Jews the new way, by claiming to be critical of Israel---despite the fact that we know little about Israel..."
Beyond this, there's the standard false allegations and accusations--- people claiming we call anyone who is critical of Israel an "antisemite" - and saying we are against "free speech," etc. We've discussed these same allegations ad nauseum throughout this website. It's a shame people can't do a few minutes of homework to see the truth of the matter, but should we really expect antisemites and their enablers to look at any situation fairly? Not at all. Thus, there is no reason to explain anything to them. You cannot argue with stupid.
Unfortunately, when it comes to Israel and the Jews, most of the world is, in fact, stupid. No matter how much we try to educate them, they wish to stay that way. They are so busy attacking us and making false allegations that they cannot be bothered with the truth, so we might as well mess with their minds a little.
Now if you excuse us, we have another meeting with the elders to go over the protocols again.
