ATS has become a right leaning site. It was not always like this but something has changed over the last decade. I have had my suspicions about possible astroturfing here over the years also.

Yes, it is a bit of an echo chamber, but have you given any thought about why that might be? A person would have to be blind not to see there is a clear bias on most mainstream platforms and the fact that there is a form of uneven censorship taking place. Twitter, google, youtube, facebook are all censoring the right for things they turn a blind eye to that the left do. So ATS may be a bit of a rightwing echo chamber, but that is only because the rules here apply to everyone and if the left is not up to challenging the narrative then they can only blame themselves.

There are definitely some assinine BS threads on here that I am surprised people will jump on and agree with just to support their team. That goes for both sides. The fact remains though that ATS as a platform remains open to everyone and all political affiliations and like I said before the rules are set and don't show favoritism to either party. It should be easy to understand that the party that is being suppressed would gather here more than the party that has free reign almost everywhere else.

So Trump is not racist for calling out Cummings for Baltimore being a rat infested crap hole right?

I'll bite.

Elaborate rather than just state that.

I don't see Trump as the panacea, or as the final solution and savior. However, my hope is he will be able to awaken enough people to the corruption and lies that people will finally rise up and say "Enough!!"



The election of Trump is just a symptom of a growing problem.

Gallop called me out and needs 🍺

He also has Bernie worthy platitudes to spout.

Better?


Just doing my civic duty. I'd put you under citizens arrest, but I don't want lefty germs.


Where is my beer, then?


Oh btw, you heard how bernie said that baltimore was worse than a third world country? the outrage by sane people was absolutely... well... *crickets*

Orange Man Honk REEEEEEE....

Sad at this site's progression.
You folks are as transparent as you are silly.
Y'all have nothing but Trump and "but the Dems". Nothing sparks me intellectually anymore.
Just another mouth-piece echo chamber.

Prove me wrong.
(I'm listening to the screech owls as they make more sense than the site I joined so many years ago)

You have 22 stars and 21 flags for your OP.

The next post down from your OP and disagreeing with your OP got 31 stars.

Just going with the simply math your OP must be incorrect; as at least 1/3 the population at ATS agrees with you and so can't possibly be a "another mouth-piece echo chamber."

But also given the fact that the second post in this thread could have been starred by people who dislike Trump but also disagree with your OP that 1/3 is probably closer to 1/2.

So nope no echo chamber.

ATS, more or less, is the same as every other social platform save for the filtering by the owners of any opinions. That's a huge deal.





It's a really big ####ing deal!

I don't follow at all.

Before hyper partisan politics of 2016, how could you know?

What poll was there to suggest this and how you came to that conclusion?

I'll answer for you, THERE WASN'T

Did it ever occur to you that ATS was probably always a right leaning site? If Politics never showed its ugly face, how could you ever know?

The left really screwed the pooch with the Russians thing.

They've empowered the right immensely as a result.

Just step back for a moment and consider this...

Why would the Russians ever support Trump over an ideology which is exactly the model of their society?????

People need to ask this question more, of themselves and others.

A basket of deplorables probably.


Trump must truly be a messiah then.. He has turned a basket of deplorables into millions of 'em.

Democrats don't even consider that people were people still, before Trump. Before Trump they were just voters.

You wasted a lot of characters to say #e that naught to do with the OP.

Y'all trying to change the subject again.

Just throw in a "Orange Man Messiah" and move on.


All you're doing is validating my point.

You cannot use reason, logic, insults no longer work, so you're stuck with a false premise that has been refuted.


In a way it is rather sad.

I like a good fight from time to time, but finding a worthy opponent is becomming increasingly rare.

Yea, I suppose if you all kick everyone out of the club because they don't dress like you or make the same jokes as you or hell, steer a thread away from a subject like you folks, yea, itd be hard to find worthy posters.

See what I'm getting at?

Life would be so much easier with that belief, maybe even a full 4 years of experiencing bliss through hope and anticipation.

Being in a dualistic reality, if that hope isn't borne out will people admit they were wrong? Or will they double down because of the pain associated with false hope? If I am wrong? Easy peasy, the country/government is actually getting reformed...socialism and welfare are being dismantled...we get more of our freedoms back and our tax overhead is reduced..we stop killing people the world over....In fact, I hope I am wrong. But if I am right and he is a plant, what happens to the freedom movement when people continue to believe he was a hero, while he was furthering deep states cause all along?

Frankly, the caliber of our opposition here is lacking. Where are the Left leaning intellectuals who are willing to counter our arguements and rebut them with solidly researched and sourced replies? Surely if your arguements are that valid, you should be willing to step into the proverbial Lions Den.


I think you've made a serious miscalculation in believing that anyone wants to change what you think. At this point, after the right wing has made it a point of pride to argue in bad faith for almost 3 years no one is thinking about that. I know I'm not.

The saving grace of everyone still brain dead enough to support the conman in chief is their complete lack of self awareness. Awareness of just how toxic Donald Trump and by extension your support of him really is. Awareness of how unquestionably supporting obvious lies is making people flee from your side like passengers on a plague ridden ship. The last thing on earth I want is for you all to wake up and see exactly who and what you've been supporting.

I want you to keep throwing up walls and blocking out entertainment and information you deem "fake" because it doesn't align with what you want to believe. I want you to continue your unquestioning support of right wing toxicity no matter what happens. So one day in the not too distant future you will wake up completely alone wondering why you've been ostracized by everyone you thought cared about you. Looking out the window, not comprehending why things are different than what Fox news told you...

Change your mind? I want Donald Trump to be the millstone all of his supporters and the idiots they vote for have to wear around their necks for the rest of their lives. Please, keep defending stupidity and crass dishonesty with a truly religious conviction. You're winning.
