What happened to TheDonald.win?
Since July 2019, I have personally owned TheDonald.win domain. Once it seemed likely the subreddit would be banned, this domain was used by the mod team for a new community site. My role was domain owner and mod team member. The moderation team, user rules, site code and databases are controlled by two other team members. My hope was always that the domain and site assets would be put under a corporation, but that did not progress.
Following the events of January 6th, 2021, it became clear media and law enforcement were attempting to dox and interview the domain owner (me) regarding the site and user content. Unfortunately, the mod team had been struggling for some time to address a flood of racist and violent content that appeared to be coming primarily from a small group of extremists who were often brigading from other sites. This had led to warnings from Epik (domain registrar) and inquiries from the FBI.
Since mods are not permitted to speak with media and I wanted to proactively get ahead of it as the domain owner, I chose to leave TheDonald.win moderation team to focus on defending myself, protecting my family, and providing proper context to what was happening on TheDonald.win. Despite my assurances they could continue to use the domain, the controlling mods moved the community to a new site without notification. The first post on Patriots.win unnecessarily and without provocation made my family a target of a childish harassment campaign. As I told many, I have no axe to grind. The moderation team is filled with America-loving patriots who volunteer to provide like-minded individuals a place to discuss issues that are heavily censored on almost all other social media platforms.
What is next for TheDonald.win?
Eventually TheDonald.win domain will morph into a new site at America.win. It will focus on the common patriotic causes that will again steer America to the wonderful future promised by our Founders and secured by the blood, treasure, fraternity, and faith of countless souls yearning for Freedom and Equality.
- Free Markets & Individual Liberty, not burdensome regulations from a bloated federal government
- The voice of the people, not of corporations and foreign lobbyists
- Citizen politicians focused on American interests, not career politicians motivated by self-interest
America.win will feature content from America-first creators and friendly sites, as well as develop a funding platform to help support their work attracting and engaging Americans from all walks of life to participate in the political process, converse with people they may typically not, and provide perspectives in American exceptionalism that social media, news organizations, and politicians traditionally ignore.
