Ravelry bans Trump supporters

Ravelry overnight has become Animal Farm and 1984 all rolled into one. I have been a member of the blog for better than a decade. I never heard any political speech on the various forums of which I was a member, but interestingly, they ignaugerated a new policy:

“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. Support of the Trump administration is unambiguously support for white supremacy. For more details, read this document: https://ravelry.com/content/no-trump”

This is fiber site. I’m a spinner/knitter primarily with sojourns into dying and weaving. Never aware of any disruptions on the site that required such a policy. If there were hate spewers or troubled forums, then shut them down. Saying all Trump supporters are white supremacists is certainly every bit as hateful.
