If you ever wondered why Discord and Reddit banned r/theDonald... that's why; they got an order from Bejing.

Source? Or is it just speculation?

The last 2 links mentioned nothing about China or an order from Beijing. The first and second links did not mention The_Donald.

Read them the other way around.

Yes, The_Donald was banned after Tencent invested in them (to be specific, reddit banned /r/The_Donald about a year after the investment, and Discord banned The_Donald about 2 years after the investment). However, I don't think you can necessarily tell if China was actually involved in the bans if you were to judge by the given articles alone.
