Pretty much. But yes people making comments about the intrinsic properties of dog breeds (especially concerning violence or other negative properties) is considered problematic because that's seen as a slippery slope to making comments about the intrinsic properties of human races. /pol/-tier memelords have embraced this sort of dogwhistling (no pun intended) before and there have been many cases of "innocuous" subreddits being shut down because of this (my favorite example was iirc there was a subreddit dedicated to air conditioner reviews or something like that that was really just coded Holocaust denialism. Anyone remember what I'm talking about?)'Hating pitbulls is racist because Stonetoss'
I unironically believe thats the case with this clown
Since Bardfinn considers any community that does not hyperaggressively police against this sort of possible dogwhistling rhetoric (and proactively ban users who are flagged by Masstagger) to be a hate sub, it's likely that the fact that these sorts of questionable posts do appear on /r/banpitbulls makes the sub a target for him.
