A major knitting website, Ravelry.com, has announced that it is banning all support for President Trump on its site.
We are banning support of Donald Trump and his administration on Ravelry. We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy. More details: https://t.co/hEyu9LjqXa

They say they are making this move to provide a space that is “inclusive of all.”
Except, of course, Trump supporters.
“We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all,” should just be your new tagline. https://t.co/RZveupyHrN

“Inclusive of all” was their stated goal while banning anyone who disagrees with them politically. Pretty funny. https://t.co/Gi4weJfj0G

Nothing says inclusive like banning people we don’t like! https://t.co/rmh8ys6wBe

Years from now, people will be able to tell their grandchildren about the day a knitting website broke the internet by banning support for the president of the United States.
