Lately, I've noticed a lot of individual posts on ATS about how "Conservatives" have recently taken over the website. They complain that the Obama-bashing is getting out of hand. They pop-off with name calling and short indignant replies whenever someone "criticizes" President Obama's policies/actions in office. I've even seen "newbies" arrive to this website under the impression that ATS leans to the Right.
ATS does not, I repeat, DOES NOT lean to the Right. When I first came to this website in 2005, I thought it was a Left-leaning garbage collector (at least in the Political Forums). Bashing George W. Bush seemed to be a promoted behavior. Now, it seems to have taken a different direction.
Well, just a reminder.....
ATS IS A CONSPIRACY WEBSITE!
Everyone trying to give other ATS members the impression that this forum leans Right is full of crap. It does not. The pendulum has swung the other way and the Democrats are in power. It makes PERFECT SENSE that a CONSPIRACY WEBSITE is going to focus on possible CONSPIRACIES involving the CURRENT POWERS THAT BE!
ATS seems to be one of the most neautral forums around when it comes to political and social differences. While being politically correct, I hate to see it being accused of leaning one way or another. Do you agree?

I agree and it's ridiculous to assume that everyone against Bush is on the left and everyone against Obama is on the right.

Whatever. This place leans so far to the right, it's about to fall over.
Political discussions are dominated by hatemongering racists who projectvehement, counter-factual arguments & thinly-veiled insults at their "opponents."
Discussions about alien life, or lost civilizations are dominated by Christian fundamentalists who usually employ the same, circular arguments popularized by Sitchin & Von Daaniken - that "we're the children of aliens" crap that people hold so near & dear.
And, the moderators do their best to ensure that this place remains a haven for the Freemen ilk. In fact, I'll probably receive a warning for this post, if not an outright ban.
I like ATS for its entertainment value, and for the occasional thought-provoking post, but the truth is, this is a place where ignorance is encouraged, never denied...
