Reddit quarantines r/The Donald

Reddit has "quarantined" a popular subreddit for supporters of President Donald Trump for "threats of violence against police and public officials."

The social media site now displays a warning message for visitors trying to access r/The_Donald which has more than 754,000 subscribers. Quarantined subreddits also "generate no revenue, do not appear in non-subscription-based feeds (eg Popular), and are not included in search or recommendations," according to Reddit.
The move comes two days after Media Matters reported that subreddit users have repeatedly called for violence against Oregon police and other public officials. Gov. Kate Brown authorized the Oregon State Police to find and return 11 Republican state senators who fled Salem to deny Democrats the opportunity to pass a sweeping greenhouse gas emissions cap-and-trade bill.
Can anyone recall Media Matters condemning actual violence committed by AntiFa, rather than alleged "calls for violence" appearing at a thread on a glorified BBS that's been usurped by Spastic Snowflake Liberals?
