Someone Just Edited Seth Rich’s Reddit Posts

[RETRACTION, 5/22/17, 9pm ET: The owner of the pandas4Bernie Twitter, Facebook and Reddit account has come forward and made a statement. This article has been amended to reflect that fact. The Reddit account u/MeGrimlock4 did belong to Seth Rich and was edited after its discovery.]

I am not writing this article to accuse anyone of anything. If Reddit administrators deleted the personal information tying a murder victim to his Reddit account after it was found by online sleuths, and if they feel they had a good reason for doing it the way they did, I am sure we’re all open to hearing their reasoning. But that information is key to piecing together data that could quite literally save the world, and we need to pay attention to this sort of thing and have a public debate about it. Tensions between the United States and Russia have reached such insane heights that an expert analyst has said we are in more danger of nuclear annihilation in some ways than we were at the peak of the last Cold War, and the reasons being given to the public for those tensions are all based first and foremost on allegations that Russian hackers stole the Democratic party emails that were released by WikiLeaks. This isn’t just about Seth Rich; we’ve all got a stake in this thing.

It’s unclear why his posts were edited, but they were. We don’t know why they deliberately removed the one piece of evidence that could definitively link him to that account, but we do need to talk about that. As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, a casual scan through his comments shows that Rich was a patriotic American who loved his country, which would lay dead any attempt to slander his name should he be revealed as the WikiLeaks source, particularly if they were planning on trying to frame him as a Russian agent. This was important evidence in this public debate that someone tried to delete.

@caitoz Seth Rich’s email was in a comment on his Reddit account, but it was edited out an hour ago.

But the internet never forgets and someone had the sense to archive Seth Rich’s account before whoever edited it deleted the email address with Rich’s full name in it, linking him conclusively to the account u/MeGrimlock4.

Note that there is no asterisk next to the post in the archived version, which means that as of the date that the archive was made (yesterday), it had not been tampered with. This proves that the editing was recent, which proves, obviously, that it was not edited by Rich. If you go to page six in the “comments” section of Rich’s Reddit account now, you will see this version of the post instead:

Note the asterisk next to the words “1 year ago”, which means the post has been edited. It is possible that a Reddit admin deleted the information because it violated some policy or another despite its belonging to a dead man, but they could have just blocked out part of the email address and/or included an admin note explaining what they did and why they did it. This was not done, and if the post had not been archived then many arguments about Seth Rich’s character could have been easily dismissed in all public debates as not sufficiently substantiated, killing without merit some of the skepticism about the official narrative of Rich’s murder as a random mugging gone awry.

For some strange reason, whoever was meddling with Rich’s account also appears to have deleted his most recent post, which was made much closer to the time of his actual death; his other recent comments currently read “11 months ago”, while this one reads “10 months ago”. This one is even more suspicious, because while the actual comment made appears unremarkable, the fact that it is posted in the subreddit r/washingtondc makes it clear that the account belongs to someone in DC, which could tip off future online investigators that they might be looking at Rich’s account even after the email information was deleted. I hope we get an explanation about this from Reddit admin as well.

Speaking for myself, I am glad that this information has been archived, seeing as all the escalations with Russia that have transpired since the November elections are dependent upon Seth Rich not having been the leaker. More and more reasons have been emerging for mainstream America to doubt the official stories they are being told by mainstream media outlets who we know for a fact have been promulgating unbelievably evil lies in order to manufacture consent for escalations with Russia and regime change in Syria, which necessarily go hand-in-hand as the two longtime allies are deeply militarily entangled.

Podesta: “I’m definitely for making an example of a suspected leaker whether or not we have any real basis for it.” 

My theory, while I have your attention, is that Seth Rich was not just assassinated because he was the DNC leaker. I think he was assassinated because he knew he was the DNC leaker. America’s unelected power establishment wants to depose Assad to secure its crucial position in the fossil fuel battles and squeeze the Kremlin hard so it stops taking bold actions like allying with the Syrian government, annexing the strategically important Crimean peninsula, and collaborating with China to undermine the hegemony of the US dollar in that region. If Rich had been able to step forward and let everyone know that he was WikiLeaks’ source and not Russia, the American people would never consent to these potentially world-ending escalations with a nuclear superpower, and America’s deep state would lose geopolitical power and influence. Can’t have that. Dead men tell no tales.

So. There’s that. Let’s talk about this.
