I've noticed a lot of new members over the last week, a lot of new accounts with gray backgrounds.

With Gab shutting down, all those posters need to go elsewhere. How many have come here? Any new members here that have joined recently fresh from Gab?

Any inside info or personal knowledge of Bowers and his postings there? Personal insights?

I was reading an article that many of the Gab members went over to Stormfront and some to The Daily Stormer. Stormfront reported an almost 50% increase in membership.

So anyways, any Gab members wanna share their experiences or juicy knowledge of events prior to the shooting?

Weird... I've seen a recent upspike of leftists in the last week or so here.. new accounts, old members coming back to fight for the throne of biggest baddest soy beta boi...

Maybe you are right and racist haters are coming here.

Doubt it has anything to do with GAB and more to do with the midterms coming up and the left doing what they do best...

Funny how conservatives claim this site is filled with Leftist when the Live Page and just about every new thread is Pro Republican/Trump and Anti Democrat/Liberal/SJW/etc.

Whatever reality your experiencing isn't at all reality.

Interesting how those on the left claim this site is filled with conservative perspectives when the star count of posts are about the same for right vs. left leaning for the OPs and first rebuttal posts.

I'm pretty sure 95% of new members are the same 3 people who keep getting banned and re-joining.

Prove me wrong yo

It's called reading the threads. It's refreshing the topics and looking at the reality.

You are IATSE.
Ignoring the reality, is like turning a blind eye to folks in costumes, props, and those others who are under represented in our business.

Now, see. I read what you said and thought to myself, could Random be corrrect? Might it all be just my perspective? My bias?

So I went to the page of top flags to look at just the top post. It was from a well known Trump supporter and it had a #box of stars. The second poster was conservative and likewise was loaded with stars. On down the page conservative posters one after another and all with oodles of stars. On the first page alone I could find only one poster who took even a moderate stand.


www.abovetopsecret.com...

So, find us one from your perspective, one that had so called liberals all through it and goes on for pages and pages with lots of stars.

Garbage.
Pure garbage.

What was the idea that it would be a sort of bastion of free speech to counter the ongoing censorship in other platforms turned into mostly just people trying to be as edgy as possible with all the (stereotypical?) super hard right and white supremacist crap

I find a number of people on this board to be tiresome and arguably racist af, but even they are gentle by comparison. You don't want that trash coming in here

So as I am understanding this issue from this thread, that sight has closed down and many are going to other hard right sites to post their venom. How will we know them if they come here.

As many many conservatives on this sight like to point out that lefties call them racists all the time and hate it when liberals bring up that race issue surely we cannot rely upon the lefties here to call them out. I would be ''just another case of cry wolf''

So from this we will have to depend upon comsevative members to call them out if they arrive.

I agree, you only have to see how many stars a right wing post gets compared to left wing on ATS.
I'm not whining though, I'm middle of the road politically and I'm only here for amusement, but ATS membership is massively right wing, anyone saying different is delusional.

If ATS is in the same camp as Stormfront and Daily Stormer..... Then something bad has happened.

Well of course.

If you are on the left you are more likely to trust government, if you are on the right you are more likely to be wary of government.

It's no surprise that a conspiracy site leans to the right.

I find it funnier seeing all these posts from people who joined in 2013 or 2014 with 10-20 posts to their name who all of a sudden get into heated political debates. One could say "sleeper cells" triggered.

Or troll farms
