Yeah, I'm here.

Ats is obviously an extremely right wing echo chamber these days.

I'm done here.

Xuenchen and cowboy can go ahead and lead you guys further down this path.

Embrace ignorance.



LMAO! Come on man. Don't be that way. You asked a very specific question. I answered it. You should have been way more vague like the Democratic Leadership.

How is it a right wing echo chamber, when the entire premise of your thread was refuted in the very 1st response?

To be fair, he/she asked for a thread and I'm assuming they meant one from this site. The first response was a link to something Bernie Sanders said.

Dude, you asked a question and it was answered in the very first response to your thread.

Now you're going to act all butthurt that your premise was falsified?

At least have the testicular (or ovarian) fortitude to admit that you were shown to be wrong.

I agree about the political and media corruption, btw.

And what is wrong with nationalism, anyway?


nationalism noun
na·​tion·​al·​ism | ˈnash-nə-ˌli-zəm
, ˈna-shə-nə-ˌli-zəm
Definition of nationalism

1 : loyalty and devotion to a nation especially : a sense of national consciousness (see consciousness sense 1c) exalting one nation above all others and placing primary emphasis on promotion of its culture and interests as opposed to those of other nations or supranational groups


Merriam Webster

Should the citizens of this nation not be loyal and devoted to it and wish for its best interests?

Cowboy said he wants to be left the hell alone.
So do I.
So do a tremendous amount of mainstream regular americans.

What ignorant path is that exactly?
If you could, if you would, please explain.

I used the question in the title. It is part of the OP.

Technically speaking you would be correct, however, I'm going to quote Tolkien here:


The Authorities ... differ whether this last question was a mere 'question' and not a 'riddle' according to the strict rules of the Game; but all agree that, after accepting it and trying to guess the answer, Gollum was bound by his promise.


Henneth-Annun

The OP could have taken the pedantic, weasely way out, but instead they chose to put forth the notion that ATS has become, "an extreme right wing echo chamber," thus doubling down on their position.

Well, technically the question is the actual title of the OP.

Exactly. That is how we know that the extreme left have taken over the Democrats Leadership.

That's the same dictionary that does not contain the word "dumb bell" 😎

You make a valid point.

The OP is off somewhere licking their wounds right about now from that thrashing you gave them, no doubt.

"extremely" ...it matters.

And you've gotta admit it has since the election... that's why we've got these obnoxious freaking ads now.

I really wasn't trying to thrash him. I just wanted to answer his question. There are people who thought that Venezuela was the better way to go.

Every time Socialism fails there are people who try to explain away the reasons for it's failure without realizing that socialism is not sustainable without a massive influx of income which will always run out, unless there is a Capitalistic way of bringing it in.

Yeah, you're right about the difference between extreme and extremely, those two letters really change the whole tone of the phrase; just ribbing ya a bit, I know that I was off and you caught me out on missing the exactness of the quote, so kudos to you for that.

As far as the ads though, I do believe it is due to revenues slipping some compared to maintenance costs iirc from a post made by SO a while back in response to some questions about ads. Not sure how you come to the conclusion that ads somehow equate to a move of the site to the right, but meh...

Content is user generated, as I'm sure you know and not really reflective of site ownership, management, or staff; you've been around long enough to know that I would htink.
