Make r/politics an unbiased subreddit for all political parties

Michael Lacore started this petition to r/politics moderators and

r/politics is mistakenly viewed as an unbiased subreddit where supporters of all parties can discuss politics, share information, and encourage free speech. This is what most people want out of this subreddit. With the Clinton/Trump race, r/politics and its moderators are leaning heavily in favor of Hillary Clinton. While I am not a Trump supporter myself, I do not visit r/politics for anti-Trump propaganda. The subreddit is called r/politics, not r/DNC. We all want an unbiased subreddit of information and respectful discussion of all political parties. If the moderators and contributors of r/politics want to praise Hillary and bash Trump, there are other subreddits where they can participate. Below are ways that we can resolve this issue:

  • Appoint a moderator from each political party to enforce fairness and respectful discussion
  • Develop a system where moderators can be voted out of their position by the collective community of contributors from all parties if they are deemed unfair
  • Make strict use of the ban hammer with bots that will monitor posts and comments for derogatory words like "cucks" or "based faggots"

The last alternative is that if the owner and moderators of r/politics refuse to abide by our requests, that they rename the subreddit to something related to the Democratic party so another unbiased subreddit can take its place.
