This picture being the face of the board is going to cause strife and anger until it is removed. Instead of an influential and recognisable general we get literally who grandpa who tought that winter comes because sun is being blown away.
Picture of Sherman would show poltards, holotruthers and state righters that there is no place for them here.
>immediately turns into /pol/ 2.0
this is why everyone hates you, /pol/
it's not because of muh jewish conspiracy or muh tumblreddit infestations, it's because you kill every board you touch
Holy shit i suggested Herodotus they took my advice.
Just ban these constant posts like:
Crying for the mods to ban opinions you don't agree with and stifling freedom of thought.
There's plenty of history forums on the internet that don't allow freedom of thought. And all of those forums will pale in comparison of what /his/ can be.
Why would you want a divisive sticky image that you know will make people butthurt and thus fuel shitposting? Stickies should be as neutral as possible, Herodotus is a perfect sticky image for this board.
It sounds like this board isn't the right one for you.
When your complaining is ruining the board yeah. You're pretty much the same people that were against a /his/ board and now you're here to ruin it. If you hate it so much just go away ffs.
Honestly die faggot, it's people like you who ignore blatant facts and instead of logically debating your opponents. If they are wrong you should be able to prove them wrong hmmm? But no you you start crying muh racism, die nazi, because your too retarded to have a civil conversation.
Plus he wrote the first historical narrative, i.e. that of the Persian invasion of Greece. Him dedicating most of the book to the background of the various regions around Greece doesn't mean he didn't actually do history. He's like an anthropologist/historian.
You need to immerse yourself in imageboard culture further before writing posts.
And this fucking argument.
I have been on /pol/. It's full of trolls and insane people.
With few exceptions, it's an echo-chamber for neo-Nazis and more extreme right-wing.
Discussions are basically name-calling and shitting out macros like there's no tomorrow.
We don't want that here, and by ''we'' I mean people actually interested in history, not in pushing their agenda.
>>immediately turns into /pol/ 2.0
maybe thats because people actually study history know how shit non-europeans are and have been since the dawn of time
its not always /pol/'s fault that reality is racist
Spare me your Nazi relativist bullshit.
It's true history is full of shit, but history is a science, it uses scientific method.
You have your own board where you can humiliate ''little boys'' with your ''superior rhetoric'' and pretend you're some great revolutionary who will save the white man from Jewish oppressors.
This board is not for that. Be civil and keep /pol/ in /pol/.
You people are like fucking Muslims, everyone must conform to your beliefs and you spread your shit everywhere.
>/his/ is nothing but beta white libs and brown subhuman /int/-reddit crossusers who got their feelings hurt on /pol/ will rest at nothing to surpress the truth.
I can't say I'm surprised, at all.
Same could be said about you, and the faggot group called /lit/ where they halfass reading.
The fact you wanna censor the truth because it hurts your fee-fees outs you as an idiot.
>and pretend you're some great revolutionary who will save the white man from Jewish oppressors.
>he doesn't know
Okay, right now on /pol/:
>thread about your daughter sending you picture with a black man
>thread about Zimmerman
>thread about Bernie Sanders
>Places Black People Don't Go
>Is just figured out Merkel's EXACT motive and plan
>Not all blacks are niggers
>be american dog
>Post your most valuable merchants.
>It seems like the radical left is inadvertently coming around to our way of thinking...
Wow sure proved me wrong. And in every fucking thread, roughly 50% of posts deal with Jews.
I want to censor it not because it hurts me, but because it will make this board /pol/lite, a place where idiots form their right-wing echo chamber and everyone and everything you don't like is a Jew.
It was literally /pol/ that made this board happen. I hate /pol/-tards as much as anyone who doesn't go there but if they hadn't asked for this during the /qa/ with Moot2 then it wouldn't happen.
>/pol/ kiddies are no longer in their meme echochamber
>waaah I'm being oppressed
>that's the culture
...of /pol/. Not of this board.
You're the ones who circle-jerk you retarded fuck.
>le spreading le truth
You're fucking cancer. You and SJW's are two sides of same coin.
>Not of this board.
Because it hasn't formed yet, faggot.
You can't just say "this is how the board will run, fuck you if you don't think with this one mindset" like you /lit/eral faggots do.
Also notice the amount of posts in it.
>attacking the reaction image instead of the post
>philosophy, religion, law, classical artwork, archeology, anthropology, ancient languages
>discussing philosophy (fascism, Marxism, democracy) is breaking the rules even though those are legit philosophy.
>You and SJW's are two sides of same coin.
At least you found a way to make yourself feel better about yourself. Here's the reality though: you're reddit garbage and you're type isn't welcome here. So go drink so cyanide.
This, no redditor or /lit/kek is going to to tell me how to use a new board. I'm all for banning kek and troll threads, but this board exists for the purpose of critically discussing history, real history, not fabricated history.
I won't say I was "triggered" by the image of Herodotus, but it seems appropriate that in this day and age we might have an alternative to the "old white guy" representing history.
Perhaps Carter G. Woodson?
That's the thing, shit you post is not the truth. It's what you believe to be truth.
For example, about Holocaust, 90% of you never bothered to read the official history.
You immediately jumped to denial theories. This is painfully obvious when I see what kind of shit you discuss and what's your key evidence.
You don't know basics, yet you want to refute something.
And because your mentality is so fucked up, anyone disagreeing with you is Jew shill.
In the meantime, while you cry about censorship and leddit, you want to censor everything that's not your version of history. Like your historical idols did.
Seriously, fuck off.
maybe if non-whites actually had historical figures worth putting up there
just look at your example, some obscure black historian that hardly anyone knows about.
Herodotus works great for this board.
ancient Greek historian, represents history and philosophy.
This is something that /pol/fags actually argue, some of them don't think Greeks are whites.
Besides he's the founder of modern historiography we don't need to post someone else for the sake of "diversity"
But that's the thing my brainwashed friend.
You are the ''liars'' here.
My problem with Holocaust talk is not discussion or denial, it's the type of people that such discussion draws, and what they think is an ''argument''.
I have tried many times, and it's impossible to discuss with people like that on internet. They're anonymous, they feel no shame.
I saw a guy who claimed bullshit about Hitler and pre-war Germany.
I proved him wrong, he left.
I come a month later, and he's still there, posting same shit.
You people are like a broken record. That's because you aren't interested in history, you're interested in forcing your ideology.
we're not talking about holocaust here.
my point is that you want to censor something that MIGHT be true just because it supports an ideology you disagree with.
if you want to censor something because it conflicts with what you believe and your ideology/philosophy/worldview then, frankly, you have a shitty ideology/philosophy/worldview that can't stand up by its own merit.
if that means this board becomes /pol/ or /lit/ 2.0 then too fucking bad.
this site is about uncensored raw discussion. conflict is inevitable, and if you want to change that then you should probably just fuck off, and that goes for /pol/ as well.
You didn't prove anyone wrong.
My point, my little /lit/eral faggot, is that censorship is wrong, it is not right on a board for anonymous posting.
Making one train of thought the only train of thought is implied Fascism, something that you don't want but it's what you shall get. And what you get from the end of it is a circle-jerk about how "progressive" history is. What you stand for, right now, is the same thing you are against, which is censorship itself.
Also playing gotcha isn't gonna work.
my vote for the face of /his/ - not the creator of it, but a great lesson from it...
