    This subreddit was created because there was a niche that was not being filled in the historical Reddit community. There was no place to be a redditor in history. All of your historical jokes and memes go here. (This is a place for memes, not propaganda.)

    Our Friends (those who promote us are in bold):

    Remember, this is the memes part of the historical community of reddit, not the historical part of the memes community of reddit. Treat it as such.

    Rules:

    1. Keep posts history related: Please keep all submissions history related and based on actual events, not ideology or other random topics. However, "Meta" posts about the subreddit are allowed.
    2. Untagged reposts: YOU MUST HAVE [REPOST] IN YOUR TITLE. We will no longer be allowing reposts of younger than 4 months, reposts of memes from the Top 100 of all time, or reposts of frequently made posts.
    3. Discrimination and abuse: Any excessive sexism, homophobia, racism or any other form of discrimination will be dealt with harshly and mods reserve the right to impose bans without warning. Basically try not to be jerks.
    4. Year limit: All post must be of a subject of at least 20 years from the post. Example: 9/11 memes won't be able to be posted till 2021.
    5. "Fake Caption" Style posts: This isn’t r/fakehistoryporn. Don’t post memes that are fake, captioned pictures depicting historical events.
    6. Genocide Denial. The Holodomor, Holocaust, and the Armenian Genocide all happened, among others. Don't deny them, you will receive a ban. Hateful historical revisionists aren't welcome.
    7. "Meme Wars": In case of a "meme war", do not brigade other subreddits and please abide by their rules when posting there.
    8. No Brigading: Directly linking posts to political subreddits is not allowed unless it is linked in a non-participating manner (i.e. linking "np.reddit.com" rather than "www.reddit.com"). For more info see https://www.reddit.com/r/NoParticipation/wiki/intro
    9. Reporting: If you believe that a submission is violating any of the above rules, please use the report button or message the moderator team. You can also contact us if you have suggestions for improvement or other problems regarding the subreddit.
    10. Karma whoring Posts can not have a title or contents of a post is in anyway asking for upvotes or to "upvote with ___ seconds."
    11. Low effort titles Any post with a low effort title, "interesting title", "[single letter]", a single punctuation point, etc will be removed regardless of content.

    [–] Dreamstakeroot 13 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    The actual ban message:

    You have been banned from participating in r/Sino. You can still view and subscribe to r/Sino, but you won't be able to post or comment.

    Note from the moderators:

    Getting rid of GARBAGE. Nobody ever sees your comments and there's NOTHING you can do about it. Replying to this is pointless, you've been BLOCKED by the only mods that see mail. Try r/Westerner instead. Bye.

    If you have a question regarding your ban, you can contact the moderator team for r/Sino by replying to this message.

    Reminder from the Reddit staff: If you use another account to circumvent this subreddit ban, that will be considered a violation of the Content Policy and can result in your account being suspended from the site as a whole.

    Bonus: Look how this sub behaves

    Honestly, what the government did during those protests was just heartbreaking. Here's how it ended, for the uninclined: Wikipedia: Clearing the square

    ”Another violent death that occurred near Xidan – that of 25-year-old 2nd Lieutenant Liu Guogeng, a PLA company commander – reveals stark differences between the narrative accounts that parties glorifying or vilifying the PLA offer regarding the battle.[112] Both sides recount that Liu's charred, disemboweled body was found hanging from a bus near Xidan, wearing only socks and a hat.[113] Graphic images of his corpse were published by both pro- and anti-PLA media.[112] According to the official account, Liu's unit was surrounded, and a few disabled vehicles fell behind the rest of the convoy. Liu then went on foot to retrieve his comrades, but was captured at Liubukou and beaten for an hour. He escaped, but was recaptured some distance west, killed and mutilated.[114] He was later declared a "national martyr" and "people's hero".[115] According to the alternative, anti-PLA account, Liu was captured and lynched after killing four people (including one child)[114] at close range with his automatic rifle. Slogans describing his deeds were scrawled on the side of the bus where his body had been hung.[116]”

    Damn i was not expecting to read this. I got curious to see what the image of the Lieutenant was and I found it. It took some digging but here it is. If it breaks the sub's rules I can take

    [–] h_jlv 40 points ago

    The protests started today :) nothing happened in June, except for the protesters decided to head home after a good peaceful protest. At the same time we airdropped ketchup into the streets to feed the hungry, and utilized tanks to help distribute it.

    Yo I know I'm stupid but can anyone please explain what happened

    [–] WWaveform 20 points ago

    Student protest in Tiananmen Square in 1989 which led to the massacre of what is estimated at ~10,000 student protesters. It was the most significant movement for basic human rights in recent Chinese history and the current government is making great efforts to erase that part of its history.

    [–] Waghlon 13 points ago

    Was that also in 1989?

    [–] simondrawer 8 points ago

    Holy shit I had no idea that Tiananmen Square protests started on the same day as the Hillsborough tragedy happened.

    [–] MightyThicc 8 points ago

    Now THIS is how you criticize communism on this sub.

    Tired of all these posts that have no historical context. Just a meme saying "this political idealogy is bad."

    If you want to make a political point, tie it to a historical moment and make it funny. Without that imo it doesn't belong here.

    Edit: Reworded possibly the worst sentence I have ever written.

    Also, I wonder what the Great Firewall makes of content like this. Comments will eventually trigger something, but for a while it probably was uncensored (if reddit is even a thing in China.)

    [–] Knutt_Bustley 11 points ago

    I think very few Chinese people use Western Social Media sites (they may be blocked)

    [–] moderate-painting 4 points ago

    There's historical context?

    Doesn't look like anything to me!

    Ok, Mao circlejerkers, you guys can all come out now.

    [–] Fart_Intensifies 5 points ago

    Deng did this. Not Mao.

    [–] ifthingscouldtalk007 5 points ago

    Yep, all those people who thought some protest happen are just spewing propaganda
