Additionally, the subversion of other major subs (r/politicsr/worldnews, etc) makes it clear that the admins are dedicated to pushing an agenda.

The agenda that is being pushed is very clear. Any post regarding the corruption associated with globalism/neo-liberalism or the their agendas (disarmament, immigration, censorship, etc) is immediately brigaded. Occasionally, the moderators will invent an excuse to delete these posts using Rule 12 or 13 as their rationalization.

We all know how that went for Digg.

The case of /u/polkadotgirl is very instructive. As you may know, she was a longtime r/conspiracy user who started her own sub; r/conspiracyundone.
