I don't think ATS has become more "right wing" than it ever was. There is definitely more political discussion than ever before, but I beleive it represents an accurate cross section of the views of those who are informed, and aware.

Most leftist are in fact conservative when it comes to their own lives... they solve those rooted problems the same.
The difference is leftist like to virtue signal on issues that don't actually affect them directly. For example, one of my neighbors has a sign in her yard talking about helping the refugees at the border (what if it was your family?!). However, they have an alarm and a locked front door on their home. So I am sure they wouldn't mind if me and my family just decided to move into their house and make ourselves at home. I mean, I am a refugee.... or better yet, I am sure they aren't taking in any refugees to live in their home.
However, having the sign in their front yard shows how "woke" they are to their neighbors and makes them feel good but doesn't actually solve the problem.
On the other hand, I guarantee if I just put a MAGA sign in my front yard, my house would be TPed or vandalized.
