It's ironic that these people harp on Trump for 'closing parts of the internet', yet champion a personal form of censorship of the internet themselves.
It's so easy to get rid of Donald Trump from your computer that the app is merely a tool that's main function is to enhance the overall performance of your computer. It's like protecting yourself from Malware...
>You're not allowed to have your personal safe space but are obliged to get constantly bombarded by the most asinine online hate mob in American history popping up everywhere in your feed.
It's like you have to keep this mad fuckers TV evangelist tier bullshit slogans running amok on your subconscious with no tools to sieve it off allowed. It's voluntary, I can be without it, but I feel like needing it right now and you shut the fuck up.
You all act like this is the first time someone made an extension like this
>personal form of censorship
Oh shit what has the world come to.
We need to start mass producing those devices from A Clockwork Orange that keep your eyes open constantly, so that no man may ever have to feel the freedom crushing pain of personal censorship!
Annoying pop culture figures and serious front-runners for presidential nominations are two very different things.
Ignoring the former makes sense. Ignoring the latter is abnegation of one's duty as a citizen of a republic.
See, you're trying to be cute here, but any sensible person would just choose to not look at articles regarding Trump.
A triggered liberal though has to take it a step further, and actually try and scrub the man away from their viewing experience, lest they experience the off chance of hearing opinions they don't like.
So then if you have a problem with those types of articles, why are you looking at them?
It must take an incredibly fragile individual to not just choose to shy away from hearing things about a person, but to purposefully try and wipe their presence away so they don't have to experience anything about them. That's sad.
And it's not like this is some pop culture celebrity, or some internet troll you're trying to filter. I find trying to self censor that stuff pathetic too, but it's a magnitude or two worse when you're trying to wall yourself away from the potential next president of the United States.
>So then if you have a problem with those types of articles, why are you looking at them?
They constantly show up in social media feeds, news sites, etc. This is basically the same thing as using Adblock so you don't have to see "MACBOOK AUCTIONS FOR ONLY 99 CENTS" garbage. The times when people want to see actually informative stuff, they can go and look for it on his official site or watch debates.
It's not imperative for them to see a million headlines of people talking about how he wants to fuck his daughter or some "inspiring" letter an 8-year old Mexican kid wrote to him or "Rodent or Trump Hair" Buzzfeed quizzes.
Yeah, don't make like this is intended to get rid of spam, because its intent is wipe people who use it from seeing Trump entirely. Go to his website? You'd have to disable the extension in the first place.
No, as OP quotes, this is to filter away Trumps "toxic candidacy" from the internet for people too fragile to handle acknowledging his existence.

I have to admire Trump for his straightforwardness. He has no tolerance whatsoever for corrupt "progressives", and he puts his foot down like any self-respecting man should. But don't mistake my admiration for complacency. He's fucking stupid, and Carson is no better. I have made my decision: lest I see someone who I believe is capable of taking office in this country, I will never vote again.
>He's fucking stupid
m8, you can not like Donald Trump, but if you think the most successful current presidential candidate, with one of the most widely recognized and valued brands in the entire world isn't smart, then what is?
You don't get to where he is by being an idiot, you're just being gamed by him if you think otherwise.
I don't agree with demagogue Trump on many things, and I don't trust him because of his history, but I support him because he's destroying political correctness virtually single handed.
He's shown people that the PC police are toothless.
I'm not very optimistic about the future of our country, but I'm more optimistic when I see Trump bashing the smarmy media faggots and sanctimonious politicians.
And as >>13414 says, he's definitely not stupid.
wait wat. I didn't quite get it. Is this just intended for people who get anoyed by trum and just block him for that reason.
Or is the developer seriously saying in his own words that he actively want's to keep his influence away from people?
Computer scientist fag here, these extensions are usually made by idiots who don't realize they can't block every single images md5, basically this ad will be 1kb with a short string of code filtering the word trump.
