How many times have you seen somebody say something like this?
Hell, if you didn't know any better, you'd probably think this place was full of racist Nazis that like to hang out at Stormfront and attend KKK
But to the disappointment of many, that is obviously not the case. I doubt there's even a single member here that would fit that description. And by
the slim chance there is, they're as relevant and as vocal as some of our older members who are no longer here. In other words, non-existent.
So what's really happening then?
I think first, we need to destroy this notion that anyone who doesn't follow in lockstep with the "Left" is automatically the "Right". I think a more
accurate and appropriate label would be mostly-moderates that happen to be Pro-Trump, or simply not-an-unhinged-and-unstable-leftist-Trump-hater.
Okay, so does that mean ATS is now more
Pro-Trump? The truth of the matter is, there aren't any more of us now, then there were 3 years ago. In
fact, I'd argue there's actually less of us. What has actually happened, is most of our fellow resident -- for a lack of a better word -- lefties,
that once inhabited this very place in abundance, have all either went into hiding, changed their identities, or have left this place for good. For
reasons that should be obvious to everyone by now and is to nobody's fault but their own.
So I guess by virtue of their absence, this place now seems more "right-wing". But as I have just illustrated, is highly inaccurate.
So I think instead of complaining that this place has become too right-wing, you should instead be asking where did all the left-wingers go?
