So look at that 'Left in Decline' thread.

You're telling me that's acceptable? It's a prime example of exactly what we're talking about here.




No that should not be acceptable.


That's probably why it was trashed as soon as staff was alerted to it.


That gives me hope. Thank you.

Not even remotely.

As ever, the political pendulum always swings towards the anti of which ever group is in power, and there's always a counter-balancing of pro.

It's startlingly close to 50-50. But that's not what many, on both ends, want to hear, as it defies their agenda.

DUring the Bush years it was accused of being a left-wing shill site for the rare occasions when anybody said anything bad about Bush.


The 'rare occasion anybody said anything bad about Bush'?

That's funny. The whole site was going full retard with Bush 3rd Term and Bush WWIII threads. Use the Archive button and go read them.

The Pendulum DOSENT seem to be swinging back...


Yet. Give it time.

I have been here 10 years as a member and another one lurking, this stuff was here when I arrived and predated me when you talk to the even older members.

The name of this website is ATS, above top secret.

The wast majority of the popular threads here has absolutely nothing to do with any mysterious or secret subject. They simply reflect (typically in a biased way) what the mainstream press is shoving down your throats. Did a depressing catastrophe or an atrocious crime happen? You can be sure that threads about it will be posted here immediately and will get flagged senseless.

On the other hand, if I dare mention people like Tom DeLonge or Steven Greer on ATS, an army of experts rushes in to "deny ignorance". Unfortunately hardly any of these posters ever actually studies the material in question.

Is this the fault of the owners of this website? I don't think so. The content is generated by us, the public. The popular content just mirrors what people want to hear. I just don't see how that is any different from the classic boulevard press, except that you can voice your opinion here anonymously.

My personal solution:
1) I only scan the title page for the "Aliens and UFOs" symbol and ignore the rest. Except, occasionally threads like this.
2) I go to the forums section, choose my favourite forum and then select "new" above the page selection ("new" shows all threads while "recent" already pushes the threads with more votes). There are still a few gems lurking there, off spotlight.

Steemit, honstely.

During the Bush years, was ATS so pro-establishment as it is now?


No, it was accused of being a left-wing shill site for not supporting the Bush Administration.

This whole paradigm is cyclical.


SORT OF.

The Obama years (EIGHT OF THEM) ... the trend SEEMED to shift radically right.

And NOW that the Republicans are in control of everything it's STILL very conservo-heavy.

The Pendulum DOSENT seem to be swinging back...


now that they control the entire federal government, and the majority of state governments, they're going after the MSM and universities, the 2 entities that they do not control.....and the threads here on ATS bashing those 2 have become more ugly, and more frequent.

There's not a damn thing that I can say to that because your posts here and your 'counter-thread'...apparently #-canned by the mods...really just bear out exactly what I've been talking about and to pursue it further would get personal. And I really don't care to troll my own thread. You don't like what I'm saying. You've disagreed, and I took note.

Anything else?

Hmm... as an admin you should know people, by nature of being human, are easily lead by the nose. That being known, why would ATS bait trolls with a section that does nothing but adulterate and putrefy this site's content?

You've got it all wrong.
...

We're the only place not dominated by the radical left.


When you view the rest of the world outside of your little bubble as being "radical" it might be time for a good long look in the mirror.

Some things never change...

On ATS, Ignorance Is Winning

And yes, that was a long time before I joined the staff.

Maybe some things do change.

I am really concerned that you are on the verge of not being able to see reality.

First, my thread I linked from Feb.8 was not **** canned by mods. Where did you get that?

But the fact that you somehow thought that proves that you are quite simply delusional, and your claims of the right wing "hurling feces" is equally delusional.

You not only routinely are quite rude in your posts, most of which are partisan based (which is fine by the way), but for you then to project and blame others is ridiculous.

Just like this thread; you start off insulting the right wing people on this cite, and then cry the victim when they respond. You even delusionally make up claims about my thread being canned.

I think you need to take a step back and look at your own posts before you criticize others.

The rare occasions anything bad was said about Bush? What ATS were you on, again?? We have very different memories of those years...

As I said above, you're not paying attention if that's what you're seeing.



I was a lurker in the bush years. Youre correct, most of ATS was against bush/cheney. The 911 threads were the hottest topic and were strictly moderated as a result.

Eta- even after I joined it remained the most heated forum up until around Obamas second term in 2012.

Grambler was not the author of the thread titled "The Left in Decline" which was trashed within minutes of being alerted due to its vile content.

2012

ATS was a lot different back then. I mean, yah, there was politics because of the election then.

But here on ATS, you literally tripped over vast amounts of threads on the end of the world, Mayans, Nibiru, polar shifts, and pretty much any other kind of doom porn you could think of.

Of course all party's have to end, and when the world didn't, subjects here on ATS shifted around of course.

Then it pretty much shifted around to Electric Universe, Electric Comets, Mars Rocks.

Spring last year, it shifted again: Trump and Hilary......and it's stayed that way for quite a while, until after the election, and now it's pretty much Trump, Trump, Trump....oh and more Trump.

As there are so many on here that hate Trump, and so many on here that want to support him, I don't see that ending anytime soon.......

Unless someone can cough up a new Mayan calendar date? More pole shifting proof? Maybe we'll be lucky and there will be some more comets headed this way........

hmm...50-50?.....not today, nor in the recent past, I just got done looking at the titles in the "mud-pit" .....tell me if you think it's 50-50

No need for apology I wondered what the confusion was.

Could the caustic rhetoric be influenced positively by banning source material from known disinformation sites like RT?

As the current American leadership is being called out for lowering the standards of civil behavior on the global and national stages,


Johnny, that is the problem... people like you and so many on the left here in America can not accept something that they disagree with. The lowering of standards is being fed by the left wing media and protests from the masses of not getting their way.

If we all just let the President do his job then things would be much more civil here.
