Is the amount of Pro/Anti Trump posts on ATS a campaign of sorts?

Hello people!

I don't usually venture into the Mudpit because the last couple of years it seems to be teeming with intense ideology that makes me worry. But that is subjective.

I have noticed that there appears to be a huge volume of Pro and Anti Trump related posts. In particular Posts about every single teeny tiny thing that Trump or Hillary or GOP or Democrats have said or done or how people feel about them.

Now there appears to be a split, a division that is more pronounced on ATS than there was when I first came here. It feels like it has spilled over into many other non-US politics threads. Is this for real? Or is this a plot of some sort to divide us all, sowing seeds to spread in the wider community? Is this a concerted effort to deflect from what is truly going on? Should there be more of a discussion about issues rather than "How awesome!"" or ""How Crooked!" someone or some organisation is?

Has any one else noticed this?

Discuss.

Yes it is real. Yes people are really that divided. For me I don't post pro-Trump threads because, I already got what I wanted. The anti-Trump threads is what I don't understand. How can someone really hate a man so much as to deem him the scum of the earth? Oh well.

Yeap. It is the reality.

The 2018 campaign has begun and 2020. Since Hillary is no longer a politician, the GOP is desperate for an enemy to slander. And the churches will ignite roe v wade again. So get ready for it to get REAL nasty.

Nothing seems too different to me than when I first started posting in political forums.

Since Hillary is no longer a politician, the DNC is desperate to delegitimize Trump and find someone out of their pool of whackos like Waters, Pelosi and Schumer, they can run as a candidate.


Fixed that for ya.

'desperate for an enemy to slander"
Oh my God, you really are out of touch aren't you? The Democrats have shot themselves in the foot every time they open their mouth and have done nothing but slander Trump from the day he won. They're still trying to find a way to take the heat off themselves and have nothing but "unnamed sources" to spout more BS stories every day.
You blame Trump's administration for corruption, but gladly overlook the rampant corruption in your own party.

Yeah, OP, you could say we're a bit divided. The Left wants to continue 8 years of failed policies and running roughshod over anyone who doesn't follow along. America can only be great under their rules and their definition of "great". Otherwise, they're more than willing to see it fail, just to say "Told ya so".
Some are even under the delusion they're going to get to impeach everyone from the top down and install their own little puppet in the White House.
Continuing delusions of the deluded.

It's the old threads that still keep me here. it's like viewing the ancient past of what ATS use to be there are some well written threads archived. However I think you will not see high quality threads like that any longer because of the mudpit encouraging the new normal here.
When I was last here under an old account there was no mudpit things have really seemed to decline since it's introduction.
When I made this new account I made a goal for myself to never create a thread in the mudpit and secondly try to post as little as possible in it. I'm doing good with my first goal I have made no mudpit threads since rejoining and I hope I never do.

I second that but would add that while the divide is truly that real, I see the two sides sort of shooting past one another. The anti-Trumpers fail to see him for what he is, a straw man and a great many seen as pro-Trump are actually more anti-Hilary. The twain shall never meet.

There will always be that post talking about ghosts or Bigfoot and you'll get that gentleman or lady having to mention trump is someway shape and fashion.

Try to ignore it. it really hurts the topics of some of these treads. When tring to get real information and your having to sift through Trump and/or Hillary. Kind of sucks. Hope it settles down.

I did not give you permission to change my words. Is that legal. See, how republicans mock and slander because their policies suck. Division is from the policies difference. Fascism or Socialism. Choose your poison.

Actually Hillary is *still* a politician.

Her influence carries over to every failed and future failed Democrat.

You are aware she is involved in brand new political PACs right?



She single handedly was responsible for over a billion dollars in campaign losses last year.

Anything "Hillary" !!

Do you think Roe vs Wade will ever be changed?

I don't , and I don't want it to be changed.

I think most people do not want any change to it.

I think the far left uses it to cause fear....' Fear everyone but the left!'

Tell that to my white southern Baptist relatives in ms,al,tn,tx. Cause I try every election. They don't care about healthcare or the economy because they either work for government, or have Medicare and social security, or very rich. It's always the same issue, abortion. It will take them awhile to accept that the repubs are going to abandon that issue now.

I've been here a long time....

This type of play between hard line polar opposites and extremist views is totally Normal ATS behavior.

It's always been like this.
You'll get used to it.
