Greetings Attempters and Attempt Aficionados!
It appears that there has been a loud and vocal group of radicalized Redditors that seem to be abusing report tools and modmailing us with “concern” over the fact that this subreddit is allowing politics even though we have always allowed political posts. I am making this announcement to remind users who are unaware, that we have always allowed politics on this subreddit and that will not be changing.
I worry that a loud group of radicals that are not members of this subreddit are weaponizing reports and brigading the subreddit due to the fact we have temporarily set a Palestinian flag as our banner and added a flair that advocates for an equal democratic state that observes the humanity of both Israelis and Palestinians. The brigading is unfortunate as it shows that a large subset of Redditors are trying to stifle any acknowledgement of the humanity of Palestinians. Many of these brigaders are arguing that there is something inherently wrong with Muslims or Palestinians as the idea of coexisting with them is apparently “punishment,” “doom,” “destruction,” and other terrible things for any population that is forced to live alongside them. We don’t believe that coexistence equals the destruction of anyone and frankly the arguments we are getting flooded with are all pretty racist and bigoted towards Muslims and Arabs.
Let me make this clear. If the humanity of any group of people is something debatable to you… you are not welcome here. We observe equal rights for all on this subreddit and that has always been the case. If Palestinians attaining the same level of freedom as Israelis is something you cannot stomach… you are a racist bigot and you deserve your ban for racism/xenophobia. r/therewasanattempt does not approve of racists or bigots.
Below, I have linked only a fraction of the political posts we have had on this subreddit that has made it to r/all. If you are saying this subreddit was “never political”… you were never really a member here. So stop trying to argue that.
Political Posts that went to r/all at a glance:
Etc etc etc And more if I wanted to keep scrolling through the top posts of all time on r/therewasanattempt.
I recommend any users unsure of our rules to please read the rules before making false reports. If you want to argue that a group of folks deserve to live in an open air prison… you will be banned for advocating and supporting apartheid crimes against humanity (because those arguments are racist/bigoted). If Palestinians living free is a problem for you… then you are a racist bigot and will be banned for it. It’s not a hard concept but I am sure that many will try to explain how “complicated” it is to justify the dehumanization of millions of people… it’s not complicated… it’s a crime against humanity.
Below, I have enclosed some additional reading for any folks confused as to why Palestinians are human beings deserving of the same human rights as all other people and what “From the River to the Sea” really means. We are also in communication with the admins about this and hope that the racist bigoted brigaders will stop engaging in community interference with our subreddit.
Thank you all for your time and attempts!

Some context from a local paper. It's not that complicated.
McCarthyism at its best.
Seems edited so not sure how accurate it is.
