/r9k/ is literally /pol/ 2.0 and the anti-/pol/ sentiment is at an all time low, what the hell is going on?
>going on 4chan to discuss centre left politics
I think you're overblowing it a little. /pol/ has always been a leaky containment board, and /r9k/ has always been invaded by /pol/ and receptive to /pol/. Jaded minds think alike. I haven't really noticed any considerable interest in racism in the past couple of months.
Honestly, you'd think 4chan would be somewhat liberal.
They were even calling for a revolution on the streets of London not so long ago.
>4chan's beliefs are based on being a contrarian?
Although jaded lonely people will always gravitate towards right wing esotericism
I don't know about you, but most people tend to stick to a few boards. We're creatures of habit.
>I don't know about you, but most people tend to stick to a few boards. We're creatures of habit.
If that's your definition of a containment board then everything is a containment board.
/pol/ is just a politics board, it just turns out to be incredibly offensive because it's what happens when you let people discuss politics in an anonymous environment with little moderation. But to think that it was especially made to contain some right wing boogeyman and protect everyone's sensibilities is just ridiculous.
>/r9k/ is literally /pol/ 2.0 and the anti-/pol/ sentiment is at an all time low
You couldn't be more wrong. /r9k/ has never been more accepting of leftist, feminist and normie audiences than it has been for the few last months. This board is quite literally becoming normie central, meaning center/ left-center political alignment.
It wasn't made to be that, but after all that's been said and done that's what politically incorrect has turned into. I don't see anything wrong with /pol/'s views, just don't like conspicuous crossboarding much.
why the change though?
do you think because 4chan posters are always trying to be edgy?it was edgy in 2007 to be supportive of those things, now that those things are accepted its too normie.
it's not exactly crossboarding, senpai. the thing is many subjects have political undertones and tangents that tend to be put in evidence in the middle of an argument. that's why we see all the Boyega threads on /tv/, for instance. it's very hard to keep political debate from happening outside of /pol/ without suppressing interesting, on-topic discussion as consequence
>I don't see anything wrong with /pol/'s views
Also, most people who said that don't browse /pol/
There is plenty of discussion if you actually go into the threads, people just assume everyone with a controversial or offensive opinion automatically browses /pol/
>/r9k/ is literally /pol/ 2.0 and the anti-/pol/ sentiment is at an all time low, what the hell is going on?
Just wanna watch the world burn bro, don't care about realpolitik or gender identity bullshit, which is what 99% of the content on that board concerns itself with
/Pol/ users are just the retards on the polar opposite of the sjw's. Fuck all of them, I hope they choke on the retarded things that come out of their face
>/Pol/ users are just the retards on the polar opposite of the sjw's. Fuck all of them, I hope they choke on the retarded things that come out of their face
4chan has always been Libertarian and still is.
4chan has always been made up of atheists and still is.
4chan has never hated Christianity in the same way they hate Islam.
I think you're new here, friend.
pol is not the opposite of SJWs. People are so dumb and simple minded they rather believe simple minded generalizations with no basis really than actually listen to pol and investigate their beliefs. These people cannot think for themselves.
Not in the same way as Islam, but many rebellious kiddos hated their Christian parents. I've been here a decade or so now, not like that's anything to brag about. This place becoming popular killed it. Project Chanology and HACKERS ON STEROIDS didn't help this place
> People are so dumb and simple minded they rather believe simple minded generalizations with no basis really than actually listen to pol and investigate their beliefs
you think tumblr doesn't feel this way about themselves?people can never see how retarded they truly are.
>4chan is contrarian
>4chan is just counter-culture
>If the Republicans win 4chan will go "back" to being liberal
Just ignore them dude. If people are still using the Democrat/Republican dichotomy then they are out of touch with what /pol/ and the rest of 4chan really believes and politics in general. It's something liberals say to console themselves, but there isn't an ounce of truth in it.
No they don't. You don't speak for tumblr nor have you ever investigated the beliefs of tumblr. They do not cite facts, they just use emotional propaganda and stupid comparison to justify their logic. Stop comparing pol to tumblr
>they're both wrong! I am truly the enlightened one, tumblr and pol are just sheep
It's not a wrong generlization. Is not reddit largely censored and freedom of speech widely resricted like for the most part racism, sexism, mods delete threads usually that talk bad about women or minorities. That's where you people come from, a liberal echochamber so of course you would be hostile to pol's and 4chan's beliefs. Where we investigate everything with an open mind rather than just filter it out with liberal buzzwords without thinking.
Ask yourself, how come in America we have never talked about the extremely high crime rate of African Americans that even the government acknlowedges in its honest statistics. Or how about Mexicans and the fact there are 30 million of them in our country sending millions of dollars to their families in mexico. Then people wonder why the middle class are losing wealth and the rich are getting richer.
>That's where you people come from, a liberal echochamber so of course you would be hostile to pol's and 4chan's beliefs.
Why are you putting words in my mouth anon? When did I say I was a redditor liberal?
Reddit's cancer is metastasizing. It wasn't enough for them to take over /pol/. Now they come for /r9k/. And to be honest, they already won. /r9k/ has gone to shit with "rare pepe" and "tendies" memes.
People were always calling each other niggers on 4chan, it's not something new. If you refer to something like freedom of speech or whatever, then you're really stupid because /pol/ is quite literally a bastion of free speech, nowhere else in the internet you can vent out your opinion without fear of getting banned.
I speak for /pol/ because I know the beliefs of pol and agree with most of them. I'm obsessed with politics and before I came from pol I came from stormfront. I don't see any pol user disagreeing with me here. You don't speak for tumblr because you are ignorant to their beliefs, their rhetoric and propaganda they put out.
Reddit and left wing beliefs are practically synonymous, so the meme isn't a generlization for OP.
Who reveals their power level in public?We could lose our jobs if we even talk about race of even women just like that. There would be a witch hunt, I do not act racist in public ofc.
The fuck are you on about? No shit people always called each other nigger here all the time. Shit saying that used to even word filter to something like peanut butter sandwiches or some shit when jewt had fun with this place. When did I even bring /pol/ up?
No one's really concerning themselves that much though
People just go "look at this dumb thing tumblr just posted" for the sake of getting a laugh out of it. Don't take this mongolian imageboard too seriously.
>Reddit and left wing beliefs
You know you can go there without being left wing right? I just think its a tad ironic how every left winger is called a redditor when you guys would have shit yourselves at what this site was years ago.
You were talking about the trends which 4chan has gone through and i was just pointing out that 4chan was never "liberal" by the current definition of the word, but if you never implied otherwise then my mistake.
and??At least I didn't come from leddit. I was please to find years ago pol, where there were young men like me who shared the same beliefs and common sense.
nope. I have black friends to and I said earlier I browsed stormfront. We do not hate other races that's why we befriend you if you act civil. We really just want our own homogeneous country and to be left alone. And we know we have to deal with the current situation of our country for now. We aren't hitler, we do not want to do violence against people.
We were always liberal as in "who cares if gays get married and people smoke pot" Which to some is a very liberal viewpoint (even though its libertarian to my understanding) Current liberalism is a fucking cancer.
People were always racist here, i don't know what you're talking about.
>You let people be bigots without telling them to fuck off.
Boo fucking hoo, 4chan was never made to appeal to your sensibilities, if you don't like it, just go to reddit, i'm not even saying this ironically, they literally ban people for being offensive, it seems like you'd fit right in.
There's a difference between racial humor and genuinely been a racist.
4chan has always had racial humor, genuine racism was never this bad.
There are a significant number of people her who would genuinely push a button that kills all black people.
4chan is constantly adapting it's sense of humor. Originally people said nigger because it was funny and didn't mean anything by it. Eventually that loses it's comedic value so they have moved on to saying nigger and hating niggers while being serious about it. I don't think many people here actually hate niggers they just say they do because it is funnier. I have no proof of this it is just my guess I'm sure someone will reply to me saying they actually hate niggers but I don't really believe them.
Most of it is still ironical, but even if someone is indeed racist, so what? this is one of the last places where you can speak your mind, that's the entire appeal of the website, of course you're going to find offensive opinions here. You seem to take this cambodian handwritting forum way too seriously.
>r9k buttblasted that a lot of people on /pol/ are over 20, have wives/girlfriends and actually feel strongly about certain real life life issues and have pride in themselves yet know how to have a laugh and banter with each other
Stay mad, you're pretty much reddit at this point.
/pol/ is a dumb meme. Most of them are libertarian atheists. Its just that stormfags and reactionaries are not immediately silenced, and therefore have a voice
also, most "stormfags" on /pol/ re just liberals who hate niggers and Muslims because they are unable to live in a liberal society. They still support gay rights and secularism
>Most of /pol/ is /r9k/ and that means fat autistic neckbeards who can't get jobs
pol is heavily normie, just like r9k
People like me (edgy unemployed virgin autists) are a minority on both boards
kek, come on that's just ridiculous. There are a lot of married men on /pol/ and men who have partners including myself, it has been discussed time and time again. You just seem to be projecting from the types on this board, there is never any NEET based threads, or >tfw no gf shit, etc on /pol/.
If that's the case, then that would explain people talking more openly about relationships and people going reee, no? Aside from that all I see on this board is a bunch of ostracized teenagers who haven't got an identity or a reason for living anymore.
Calm down, you already posted one. I'm not daft, the only way to show that is to reveal my identity in some form, so nah. Don't believe me if you don't want to, it shouldn't be far fetched considering how mainstream 4chan is.
