Many were looking forward to election day because they were tired of all the political threads on ATS. Here we are a few days later and it seems like we have as many - if not more - political threads now.
Take a look at the front page, 98% of the threads are politics-related.
How much longer will the political threads keep pouring in? Until the official inauguration in January? Longer?
Seeing as Trump's victory is the most controversial of all time, I get the feeling ATS will be like this for at least the next 4 years.

The United States is going through a major political transition.
The topics and exposures of liars will not end.
The transition will take 10 years.

Here's an idea...
Go to every single forum that you enjoy reading or like to participate in and "favorite" all of them. Make "myATS" your main page instead of using any other pop-generated pages. Taking this route will whisk you away from a full on frontal assault of political banter and allow you to create a more tailored ATS experience.

You ARE aware that all the threats are coming from Democrats and Liberals right?
You ARE aware that celebrities are inciting violence for Trump supporters right? I'd link you to one but it's already been deleted.
The witless intellectual failures are the ones threatening people who voted different. Like Trump voters have done to people who look different than them repeatedly since his election wound up, but examples of which are not being reported to the same extent as they occur, or to the same extent as are attacks on Trump supporters, for some strange reason?
Your logic is severely flawed and you need to take a step back and look at reality.

When Trump fans stop believing that:
They voted for a good candidate, rather than AT BEST the least worst
That he is anything less or more than a fascist
That his presidency will be anything other than a disaster for the freedom and liberty of the people of the United States
for a start.
Oh, and here's an idea that witless intellectual failures might want to adopt before their ignorance drowns them in the blood of innocent people...
The Nazis were NOT socialists. The socialists of Germany were some of the first against the wall, as it happens. The presence of the word socialist in the name of the Nazi party, was there to attract socialist activists early on, because they had access to massive support amongst workers, and were heavily involved in the labour force, and were needed on side. The moment they realised what was happening, most of them revolted and were executed or imprisoned with the same ferocity that the Nazis went for everyone they disliked.
So, when you see the idiot Trumps biggest fans works in the streets, the spray paint on the walls, the beaten homosexuals, and the abused Americans of colour who have encountered the serious fan base, do not hide behind the flawed understanding of the Nazi party that many of you have, which describes their party as socialist. That was a propaganda ploy then, and it still is today. Accept it or not, this remains the truth.

There is virtually nothing on ATS beyond political vitriol, toxic comment and hate.
