Let's all remember it's "ctrl-left", not "alt-left".

The left (although I abhor the dichotomy, no one understands unless I employ it) is all about control. That fact couldn't be more apparent than in their throwing a fit over a website claiming to offer an uncensored platform.

Pointing that out, for some completely illogical reason, makes one a white supremacist, apparently. Yet another example of their attempt to control and silence their opposition through discursive manipulation.

Reddit is cracking down on toxic users, GAB meanwhile pledges no censoring or filtering. I think this is a cool idea, we are all adults, and this GAB is a forum. But we will have to wait and see.


Yeah well i suppose people will be responsible for filtering/choosing to what to read on their own like the rest of the grown up kids who actually live in reality.

For the ones that cannot deal with that, i feel sorry for them and i imagine they need their mommy and their poppy to hold their hand at age 25.

Why do you insist on making "alt-left" a "thing"? It's not. I have explained to you and yours on other occasions, people who are left of left are typically Socialists. Alt-right is rather naziesque, wouldn't you agree? And there is nothing remotely parallel to it in the Left.

And it's not necessary to post links from other sites who also insist on it. They are apparently as mixed up and gullible as you are.



No it is not. You have only been told that it is by the MSM.

Ugh. I didn't know. You can have that designation. Just the thought of it makes me feel contaminated.
But you go ahead. I feel all creepy now, see, I didn't know anyone would actually admit to that.

Our little tête-à-tête abruptly ends now.


Idiots on the left who have been so brainwashed by propaganda cant handle an opposing view and think it should be stamped out and punished or just disappear quietly.


This is so erroneous. But I won't try to reason with you. You don't drink the Kool-Aid, you make the Kool-Aid.

*shudders and leaves thread*























Bravo. You successfully mimicked the stereotypical liberal response. Full of hate and verbal diarrhea without even attempting to gain a true perspective of someone opposing your views. You feel "dirty and creepy" now by being in the mere presence of an admitted alt-righter person in cyberspace? How sad, you bought the new constantly spewed social narrative on what "normal" and "non-creepy" is (if it's not liberal or "cool" at the moment). If it doesn't fit your political ideology, or what is "acceptable" to you then that person is probably a dirty racist or sexist or...something. Ew dirty! *leaves crying*. Talk about kool-aid drinking 101.

How is all that tolerance working for you?? Your intellectual superiority clearly should have taught you to be more tolerant, no?

How does the left not see this very blatant and obvious hypocrisy displayed daily? It's mental, and it's just getting worse! THIS is why people more and more are veering to the right. I didn't even vote for trump being an independent libertarian but WOW the left has just gone waaaay too crazy and offended and creating new labels, displaying their own hate and hypocrisy etc etc every week. It just goes on and on! I much prefer the right over this crazy nonsense. It's like mass hysteria or something.

Alternative social media is bound to spring up when restrictions come to mainstream outlets. I wonder if it's a honey pot(see here). Media paints it in bad enough light with intent. If not it has potential to become one if the Feds are looking for patsys. One should be careful with these, make sure to bring along your VPN protection(not always full proof according to law(as of Dec. 1st ) if you are suspected of a crime when venturing in).

Of course there are people who are Marxists and alt right, that is how it used to be. But now - I would never ever call Hillary left - she is with the big banks and coorperations as the rest of the democrats and the others are the same. The MSM are using alt right (yes there are some idiots) to scare you. Not everyone who reads these news sites is alt right (in the meaning of rascist bible bashers ...) but most mistrust the MSM for a good reason.
TPTB are using the terms left and right to divide and conquer and for nothing else.

Indeed. Very well put.

I'm also surprised more people don't pick up on the subtext of "tolerance" used by the ctrl-left. You "tolerate" things that are within your power to stop. It's a passive-aggressive way of claiming control over a situation.

Am I tolerant? No. I don't need to be. I don't assume that I have some God-given right to control other people, so it's not up to me to "tolerate" them or not.

I don't think you're alt-right.

Do you hold the same ideals as Richard B. Spencer?

Apparently he's a figurehead of the alt-right movement.

Omg, I'm so glad you caught that.. I was like , how do people rewrite history like that and say socialists and nazis are not related...

I guess these people never heard of the nationalist socialist party about seventy years ago.

Yes, and so would the large number of ACTUAL socialists that the Nazis imprisoned, tortured and murdered, after it became apparent to the real socialists of Germany that the intentions of the Nazi Party were actually corporatism and genocide, as opposed to installing a genuinely socialist, open and pro-worker government, which is what the socialists were told they were buying into when the Nazis asked for their support.

Why do you insist on denying it when they scream it loud and proud?
Funny how people love to throw around names right up until they smack them in the face with one.

ETA:I am removing this because I was wrong about the webpage I listed. Thank you for that, I did not read all the content...shame on me!!!

However, I stand by my alt-left comment. As I stated in another thread, I would think the left would want these people in a different group then themselves. There are left-leaning people and then there is this new group that is so far left they are standing on their heads! Just like there is right leaning and people so far right they've fallen over.

ZAP! You've been spoofed!

There are no left wing thoughts being expressed on the page you linked to. Socialism is not an inherently nationalistic or discriminatory school of thought. The Alt-left as described on that page seem to be merely right wing thinkers with a deluded view of their own polarity.

Well, I hope the Alt Right trolls leave in droves to live in their own censorship free echo chamber of hate and leave the rest of us alone. Of course, they won't leave because they love to promote their ignorance and hate.

Now what would be the fun in that ? Someone has to stay and keep the "left wing loons" checked.
