Ad trump supporters get brow beat as well.

need I bring up the post again by prominent members at the time saying trump supporters are all racists fascists that will need to be killed if trump gets too much power?

Or am I being borw beat by people constantly saying i only post things for stars?

We had thread after thread about trump and pee and ice cream and sants clause and being orange and being dumb and being and adukltetrer and being racist and people a rich scum bag, etc.

I dont recall you being so vocal against those threads.

There are dumb threads by members on all sides. The dumb ones on the left havent had any good material for a while. I will be back, dont worry

Yes, one member keeps posting about muslims and fire. Many trump supporters spoke out in some of those threads.

After charlottesville there were countless threads on trump speaking up for white supremacists which was a lie.

In comes and goes in waves.

It is not an echo chamber.

lies about what omar said about the fire


Wait a minute, the vast majority of posts in that thread said they saw no issue with Omar's tweet. Did you conveniently forget that because it failed to scratch your itching biases?



correct
the vast majority did

the point is the thread title is a blatant lie and sensationalized to spread an agenda

and mods like you participate and/or allow it

it is a lie of a title. she didnt say what the OP started the thread with yet there it stays.

you most definitely are one of the worst ones.
for sure

you constantly talk down to left leaning members
you propagate it or at the very least allow it to go on because it fits your agenda too


i get a post deleted for saying someone is acting like a vagina but other people can basically say they are cool with or want omar to get assassinated and that post is still there.
tons of stars.

sitting member of congress man

you allow it to happen

so there is a tit for tat?

how or when does it stop?

what do you say to that?

most of the threads are right leaning threads by right leaning members.
am i wrong in saying that?

a vast majority of the left leaning members have dipped out



so how does it stop grambler?
any ideas?


i think a good start would be to get more impartial mods on here cause it is clear how they lean

they are allowing it to go on

100%

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Muslim Politician in Canada "Jokes" about Basilica of Notre Dame burning down in Montreal

more anti muslim cap by the same person

posting the same type of threads across different forums.

right/wrong/neutral is this what the site leaders want?

a constant barrage of bull# like this?

every single story from his link is anti muslim

summit.news...

guess thats what the people want these days

No it seems like what I claimed, there is not good news lately for democrats.

For some reason the archive only goes up to 2013. But when bad moments for trump come up, there are far more threads on those days from non right wing people.

Again, as I said in the OP, the overwhelming amount of all media is dominated by the establiushment left and democratic party.

So it will be natural that a site like this will counter the narrative they are selling. And as the russia collusion hoax has shown, they are brazen with their lies.

But nonetheless, that doesnt mean ats is a right wing echi chamber, as there are many anti trump cvoices, many people in between, etc.

You are looking at this point, after 2 years of trump being called a russian agent being proven a lie and the fact that people on ats that were invested in that narrative now not posting as many threads.

They will be back

My god is that poster in your head.

Ok ignore him. Problem solved!!!

I am sure right wing posters could tell you left wing posters that post very similar threads or comments over and over and over again.

You ignore them, have discussions with them or point out why they are wrong, or report it to a mod.

I dont know why you think that one poster proves that ats is an echo chamber

I'll go back to flaming the right when the left stops acting crazy.

Don't blame the volume of right leaning threads, when we're currently in progressive crazy town and it's the most interesting stuff to talk about.

The mods aren't out to get liberals but good conspiracy to get ats back on track

I can tell you from experience that many right leaning members have felt abused by mods as well.

The truth is most of the time they do a good thankless job. And yes, I have had disagreements with them.

But whenever you feel you are punished byh a mod, you almost always fee; they were wrong or biased, no matter what side you are on.

What would new mods do?

Put a limit on how many posts about islam someone can make? How about Christianity? Or trump?

Where do we draw the line?

instead of relying on mods, make your own content and interact with the people you feel are worthwhile.

ok man

you have it all figured out

its cause there is nothing good in the news

so i ask again

how do we stop the tit for tat?

a reply to: Grambler

i dont feel punished

a deleted post is nothing. i was just making a point

if it is so damn thankless maybe they shouldnt do it


fact is the active mods are right leaning
they talk down to the left leaning

the more left leaning/neutral ones are pretty scarce these days


as i said'

your mind is clearly made up

you are not considering any opinion. you are sold that it is not an echo chamber
you are sold on the fact the left leaning members are scarce cause the news of the day

so i guess thats what it is
you have spoken

Calling someone names will get your post removed. I saw the post you referenced saying omar should be assisnated. Thats not exactly what it said,

A user said she could get assassinated, and someone responded well she should be careful what she says.

I didnt like it at all, but it not outright calling for her death.

Now i showed you many posts of prominent members calling for the outright killing of trump AND his supporters, all of which was allowed to stay up.

It goes both ways.

Im sorry, but its coming off as you wanted to call someone a name and got a psot removed for it, and you are upset that there has been a lot of posts on ats favoring trump, and so you are upset over it.

thats fine, but it doesnt make ats a right wing echo chamber

Your mind is clearly made up as well.

At the end it boils down to your theory the mods are all right wing.

I assure you people on the right that have been banned or punished feel the exact opposite way.

so let me ask you for the 3rd time

how do we stop the tit for tat?

and i didnt say he exactly called for her assassination.
i said he said it in a round about way

it is possible you know

you said you didnt like it..
got the same vibe then huh?


fourth time


how do we stop the tit for tat?

i never said the mods are all right wing

i said the few that are most active seem to be

there are lots of mods here that you dont see much anymore

see the same few right wing ones though

oh ok

we will just make our own material

nobody seems to give a # about much of the content if it is not political these days

can you at least agree with that?

left or right

the political # is the stuff that takes off

right or wrong?


this place is no longer a conspiracy site
not by a long shot


the whole place is a political mudpit

Sure politics is most popular.

You participate quite frequently on political threads, as do I.

As far as conspiracies, we have almost the entire media, academia, entertainment industry, and silicon valley universally parroting deep state narratives to take down an elected president by any means necessary, including spying on his campaign and telling outright lies about them.

It is an enormous conspiracy with incredible real world implications.

Or if you believed those people, we had a president that is sold out to russians, is a racist who is seeking to eliminate brown people from the country, makes gays illegal, and become the most ruthless dictator in the history of our country.

So yeah, one way or another, politics is showing us the biggest conspiracies with the most visible evidence.

Even though there are more trump supporters or at least people upset with the "conspiracy" against him (which makes sense given that 90% of all the cultural institutions of power are dominated by left wing ideologues) ats has plenty of people that are indifferent or dislike trump, and thus its not a right wing echo chamber.

i have 196 threads in general chit chat

43 in the pit

94 in music

44 in movies

so when people say all i do is post in political threads we can see that is BS

i didnt say you said that

you have 104 in the pit

164 in political madness

then a major drop

so you are a heavy contributor to the political side of this so called conspiracy board

for whatever thats worth which i am sure is not much



my point is i do try to share content that is not political

but yes i do participate in political threads

Ok so ypur problem is with leaders that are right wing.


And/or left wing.


Fair enough, though I disagree.

That doesnt mean that nationalism, or the idea of a leader looking out for their own people first is a bad thing.


Nations are actually quite arbitrary divisions, as are races and political affiliations. People define borders and they can change at whim. Just because you wear one color and I another doesn't mean we are alien.

We are all human. We all live on the one planet, in the one solar system. We have similar needs and wants and are intelligent enough that we can get our way without hurting someone else.

We need to cooperate for survival because we now have significant power over our environments and someone (or a group) who is greedy or malevolent towards others can now adversely affect all of humanity.


As for your insults to the US, sure it has problems, but I feel its the greatest country on earth. Thats a topic for a whole different thread though I guess


The good things about America are great. The bad things about America are bad. It's no mystery.

I personally see good and bad in the US, Australia and New Zealand, but it makes sense as a responsible participant in the world, that I would want to encourage the good things and discourage the bad, no matter where they were around me.

A rising tide lifts all boats.
