Why is /pol/ hated so much?
Specially /his/, there's at least two threads there every single day hating on us /pol/acks. Not to mention countless posters talking shit like
>hurr durr back to /pol/
I mean, come on. /pol/ is a board of peace. we cannot let the actions of a minority represent the peaceful majority. tolerate /pol/acks in other boards and don't be a bigot. i mean its 2015.
le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels! le ebin lels!
man fears what he does not understand
They are the modern furries and have the constant need to put their shit into everything disregarding any board culture and make it known they are from /pol/
Sometimes /pol/ can be obnoxious about the jews, cucks, and SJW, but I think some people overreact. This is still 4chan after all. Not an intellectual haven of civility and tolerance. Some people really have become very sensitive about certain stuff, as there's a real PC culture going on online, and I think you should at least lighten up about certain stuff if you come here.
Modern 4chan is full of sensitive leftists who are upset when they see an opinion they normally wouldn't get to see on tumblr or reddit. Whining about /pol/ is like calling someone "racist", "sexist", "bigot": just name-calling to make the big baddies with non-PC opinions go away.
That's not to say /pol/ doesn't create problems on some boards (although really not as much as a couple years ago), but most people who are upset about it are just upset about the opinions on display.
/his/ is Literally Reddit: the board.
People don't hate /pol/ because they're Reddit.
People don't hate /pol/ because they're SJWs.
People don't hate /pol/ because they're librul.
People don't hate /pol/ because they're butthurt.
People don't hate /pol/ because of their ideology.
The reason why everyone hates /pol/ is because they try to shove their ideology onto boards that have nothing to do with it. And then, when told to fuck off to a board where they can discuss their ideology, they throw a fucking bitch fit like they're being persecuted or something.
I actually polled several boards around October. The only boards who hate /pol/ are the super slow ones while all the boards who liked or browsed /pol/ were large fast ones. So anti-/pol/ is definitely the minority.
>The reason why everyone hates /pol/ is because they try to shove their ideology onto boards that have nothing to do with it.
What did /v/ do once moot banned gaymer gate? Come crying to us.
It's really the left's fault that politics is part of so many things nowadays and because the left keeps going into shit like video games and movies it causes the right to follow them.
>/pol/ is the majority of the site
That's fucking funny.
High posting =/= the majority of 4chan. /b/ has always been the largest board on the site, but you'd be stupid to imply it has ever been the majority of 4chan
>>/b/ has always been the largest board on the site, but you'd be stupid to imply it has ever been the majority of 4chan
>He forgot about the internet hate machine
>/b/ is just a porn dumping ground
That doesn't matter. Your arugment falls flat in implying /pol/ is the vast majority of the site, simply because it has a high posting rate. You are just making the /b/ = 4chan argument, which is simply not true and never will be. A high posting rate just because it has people who fucking love to constantly post on it, not that it has a large number of users.
Most people who use /pol/ probably use /v/ and /r9k/ as well, but those users are hardly the majority. They are a minority and a fucking loud one at that.
It's painfully obvious just look at GG. /pol/ is just /b/ grown up and most of /v/ has gone on /pol/ or is on /pol/. Just accept it lad, /pol/ is the future of 4chan and it's taken /b/'s place as main influence of the site. No amount of complaining will ever stop that.
>/pol/ is just /b/ grown up
/pol/ is just fucking /b/, except, the majority of people are into a single ideology. It's hardly 'grown up'. You are just one of those /b/ = 4chan because it has a high posting rate and is famous outside of 4chan. You are just applying it to /pol/ instead
People always said /b/ isn't the majority of the site but that shit simply isn't true. Most boards get their culture from /b/ just like they're getting culture from /pol/ right now. /b/ defined what 4chan is just like /pol/ defines what 4chan is today. /pol/ is 4chan, stop living in denial.
I don't know why you fags think high posting rate is not an indicator of population. Just look at /toy/, you know why threads there are almost a year old? Because nobody fucking posts there. If that shit were true than /lit/ would be almost the size of /pol/ but they don't have the numbers. On /pol/ 5 posts could be made in less than 30 seconds which could never be done on a board with 20 shitposters.
>just like they're getting culture from /pol/ right now.
This is straight up fucking not true. It's /pol/acks /v/ermin and robots forcing their culture on other boards, not people talking that culture to their home boards. Fuck, they don't even try to fucking pretend they aren't forcing it and straight up make it obvious they don't even use the boards they are forcing shit on. Stop talking bullshit
/pol/ doesn't define anything about 4chan. Keep dreaming, fagboy. Maybe oneday you will leave your little bubble and realize most people don't like /pol/, /v/ or /r9k/ and that you aren't the majority. You are just a loud minority
Fuck off retard. 90% of the /pol/ hate comes from all the reasons you listed.
>Only because /pol/ has flags and thread IDs so users are constantly changing their IPs.
>"The reason why everyone hates /pol/ is because they try to shove their ideology onto boards that have nothing to do with it"
>Spreading the truth is ideology
Let me guess, you're from the church of lies?
I hate /pol/ because it poisons and shits up discussion on every board with its racist pish. Half the threads on /co/ devolve into TUMBLR!!1! and /tv/ will be spammed for days whenever a black man gets any kind of prominent movie role. It's garbage and it gets everywhere on the site
Why are there always literal reddit threads on /pol/? No other board, except maybe /b/, would accept that.
>Look /pol/ I got banned from reddit for this post I made
>Please upvote this so we can redpill the redditors
>FUCKING HAPPENING REDDIT IS GOING FULL REDPILL
>It's invaded by r/4chan and Bernie cultists
You left out 8gag /leftypol/
/pol/ gets raided by all these people.. a lot.. but nobody seems to care because of the piss in the ocean of piss effect.
/pol/ is the board for politics, so if people use it to discuss politics (left wing included) it isn't a raid. What IS a raid is when people /pol/ post outside of /pol/. Which is all too common
>4chan is mostly libertarian albeit with racist jokes
>Most posters were athiest and anti-morality police.
>Loved Obama, even hacked Palin's email to prove it.
>Raided Hal Turner's show because he was a Stormfag.
>Supported legalizing pot.
>4chan is full blown neocon Neo-Nazi Christian crusaders and morality policemen who watch Fox News, fuck their cousins, wear sunglasses and a cowboy hat, have sunburnt necks, have a gun rack with a gun rack on it, live in a trailer park in a swamp, worship Christ, read the Bible every night, go to church every day, and think Bibleman should be compulsory viewing for all schoolchildren.
>Racist jokes replaced with infographic spam and conspiracies about things women/blacks/Jews have been scheming
>If you say you're atheist, christfags get upset and spam the fedora meme.
>Think Obama is a "scourge nigger monkey born in Kenya who aint one of us, burn 'im at the stake :^)"
>Would probably fund Hal Turner's radio shows today.
>Anything positive about marijuana gets shitposted into oblivion with "DUDE WEED LMAO"
>Bashes "weebshit" at every turn
It's the opposite for me. I first to came to 4chan in 2006 when I was 18. I was an edgy neo-fascist spouting racial slurs everywhere. Then I went to college, got my Master's degree, got a job, and matured. I think 4chan, especially with the prevalence of social media, is one of the last places for people to spout their inane bullshit without consequences for the most part.
/pol/tards really aren't much different than SJW's they incessantly "fight against."
They fail to realize how their entire lives are based around a persecution complex. It's just the opposite extreme of social justice. They think the evil liberal / gay / SJW agenda is lurking around every corner
They see everything in black-and-white extremes. Either you agree with /pol/ or you're an SJW. There's nothing in-between.
Everything they ascribe to "liberalism" / the social justice movement, they are guilty of themselves.
They require external validation to such extremes that they have to inject themselves into everything. Not a single board on this site can stay on topic with /pol/ constantly crashing in. "Hey guiz, did you hear the evil SJWs are trying to take away your gaems?! Guiz, we have to fight the librul untruths of science and evilution! Guiz??"
I can't be the only one who thinks this is hilarious.
>that Bill O'Reilly image
The funny part is that people bring it up as "proof" that 4chan used to be a "far-left" website even though it's just a shoop someone made and O'Reilly never talked about that.
Also forgot to say, even if Fucks News had actually said that, it obviously couldn't be taken seriously. Of course they'd call anyone to the left of Ronald Reagan "far-left", and they'd never associate their politics with a site like this.
He did mention 4chan as a "far left website" during the Palin email thing, but you're right that the one pic that floats around is a fake. He has also mentioned 4chan specifically when someone from old /new/ defaced billoreilly.com (and hannity.com and foxnewsradio) and posted about it here.
I was a kid when I was here at the time so I didn't have a good grasp of American politics but I remember a lot of bitching about Obama even in 2008. All I remember about Fox News is making jokes about "hackers on steroids" and reports like that, or that Mass Effect controversy where they called the game sexist, etc. or when they got Jack Thompson on the show since I was mostly on /v/. How were the site politics outside of /v/ if you remember?
Speak for yourself Shlomo. I don't necessarily agree with all of /pol/'s views, but they act as the main barrier to SJWs and leddit/tumblr completely taking over the site.
Also they have better humor and more oldfags than all the other boards on the site.
I am not speaking for myself, I am observing the fact that /pol/ shit is hated on every board, whenever it appears. It is always protested against. Thats how the "/pol/ boogeyman" meme started, because people indeed hate /pol/.
In fact, if they didnt hate it, you'd have no reason to make this thread.
I didn't make this thread. Also why do you take a thread with the title "/pol/ophobia" seriously?
>I am observing the fact that /pol/ shit is hated on every board, whenever it appears.
Just because every time some Reddit loser hears an opinion he doesn't like, he has to get triggered and "call out" that person by crying about /pol/, doesn't mean that represents the whole board. It also makes sense that people don't want shit that doesn't belong on their board if it's completely off-topic.
>Thats how the "/pol/ boogeyman" meme started, because people indeed hate /pol/.
No IIRC it started when SRS started posting on 4chan and pushed this meme that any right-wing or politically incorrect opinion comes from "/pol/". It didn't exist before 2012, where you'd see people openly sucking the cock of Breivik on a few boards without anyone crying about some boogeyman.
>It's almost like 2012 is when /pol/ decided to overflow into every other board
Not really. When /n/ and /new/ were deleted it was probably worse. And it's true, 4chan has always had /pol/ish posters on every board, especially on /b/. They're a lot more like "real 4chan" than the people who cry about "/pol/" when you call them a nigger.
every board has a handful of (autisitc) users that hate /pol/ and go to every thread that only slightly resembles a /pol/ thread and go berserk, which makes it look like a lot of people actually hate /pol/
there are just a couple of dedicated autistis with /qa/ as their main board
all hail /pol/
do you have a single fact that back up your claim, though?
my evidence is the fact that /pol/ is one of the most visisted boards on 4chan right now + you see their jokes all the time on other boards, which means /pol/ is popular
My evidence is that every time a "joke" from /pol/ is posted outside of /pol/ you get a thread derail and a violent reaction against that /pol/ garbage being spilled.
When people react against something in mass, normally this means they dislike it. The more you know.
>My evidence is that every time a "joke" from /pol/ is posted outside of /pol/ you get a thread derail and a violent reaction against that /pol/ garbage being spilled.
where is your evidence? Beause you are talkinng shit
whenever someone says a /pol/ a joke most people actually think its funny and only a couple (mostly just one guy) goes full autist
>When people react against something in mass, normally this means they dislike it. The more you know.
people also react positively mostly to /pol/ jokes.
>everything which isn't /pol/ is PC kekoldry
And how about NO politics, anon? Some people just want to talk about things they want without political shitposts. Some of us want to escape the real world and don't want to be constantly reminded of it, of the current political situation. I think Hiro said something about those who constantly talk only about politics as being boring faggots, somebody post it.
>>everything which isn't /pol/ is PC kekoldry
>everything which isn't PC kekoldry is /pol/
>being on the level of /b/, /v/ and similar summerfriend cringeholes
>thinking that it shows that /pol/ is better
I've been here since 2001 and I remember when /pol/ was still called "/p/". Good times.
I know anon. I wish it could be avoided too. Almost every 4chan board is male-oriented, while feminists are fighting for more inclusion in video games, technology, meme culture, porn, anime, sports, STEM majors,...
We live in a very politicized age right now.
I think there is resurgence in anti-/pol/ism because at this point in time 4chan has not yet learned how to handle the truth.And i think we going to be part of the throes of that transformation which MUST TAKE PLACE.4chan is not going to be the monolithic degenarete society it once was in the last years./pol/ is going to be in the center of that, its a HUGE transformation for 4chan to make.4chan is going into TRUTH mode, and /pol/ will be resented because of its leading role, BUT WITHOUT that leading role AND WITHOUT that transformation 4chan will not survive.
While they are indeed, quite comparable as groups it generally ends at that point.
SJWs are a minority, but they wield the power of the accepted majority. Everyone from lowly fora moderators to CEOs of global conglomerates are bending over themselves to appease SJW demands.
They're able to get university professor's fired just by tweeting. They're allowed to print blatantly racist publications without any backlash. They're allowed to inject their politics and agendas into every facet of life and treated as higher beings for it.
If they didn't exist, the /pol/ esque pushback that you're complaining about wouldn't exist. Video games, movies, TV, books, programming, the tech industry, all of it is now swimming in partisan politics thanks to the SJWs and at this point they still wield infinitely more power in those areas than the kind of people you'd find at /pol/.
They are not in any way, shape or form equal. Not when SJWs can count elected officials and CEOs in their ranks while /pol/tards are anonymous nobodies swirling about impotent imageboards.
Nah. I loathe /pol/ for some of the ideas it represents, but will defend it regardless for the same reasons >>405022 points out.
Not him, but there are tons of people on this board who hate /pol/ simply because it allows people they don't like to discuss things they don't like. And yes, from the dreaded Reddit.
Because they're a bunch of illiterate retards who know nothing of their own respective cultures let alone anyone else's
Because being a conservative doesn't mean acting as comically sociopathic and edgy as possible and feeling threatened by people as laughable as tumblrites
>being upset by edgy or sociopathic behavior on 4chan
OH I AM LAFFIN
>implying the only people who don't like tumblrites are /pol/acks
A good amount of the time leftists start the shitflinging fest, though. For all I can care, if everyone else realized that not giving them any attention would cripple them then they all wouldn't be so bad
>he thinks only /pol/ hates SJWs
>if peole don't like SJWs censoring games and shitting up the entertainment industry, it means they're from /pol/
You're a fucking idiot.
Also forgot to say:
>fight the librul untruths of science and evilution! Guiz??
This is hilarious considering SJWs are the most likely to deny science and evolutionary biology/psychology because it's not politically correct enough.
It's mostly anti-SJWs and /pol/-types in general who care about science and hard truths about evolution while SJWs constantly try suppress and deny those truths.
But you're probably a shill from Reddit, so the image in that guy's mask probably applies to you.
What makes you say they're leftists? Are they socialists? Do they push for socialism?
Can you please post examples of actual communists pushing SJW agenda? And by communists, I mean communists, not social democrats nor liberals nor progressives (protip: they're not even socialists, much less communists).
The anti-/pol/secution movement will get our revenge soon
You should just surrender to the red-pill tide now
>/pol/-types in general who care about science and hard truths
I was responding to this point:
>Not a single board on this site can stay on topic with /pol/ constantly crashing in. "Hey guiz, did you hear the evil SJWs are trying to take away your gaems?!
As if it's only /pol/ who cares about that.
>you shouldn't talk about a gaming-related subject on a gaming board
>implying it's even remotely about video games and you're not just looking for an excuse to bitch about something
i am laffin
Serious question, does /v/ even talk about video games? As in, the actual games and not just autistic video game "culture" and the bullshit that surrounds it?
>Video games, movies, TV, books, programming, the tech industry, all of it is now swimming in partisan politics thanks to the SJWs and at this point they still wield infinitely more power in those areas than the kind of people you'd find at /pol/.
>He takes goobergate seriously
>He actually uses the term SJW unironically.
>>implying it's even remotely about video games and you're not just looking for an excuse to bitch about something
>people "taking away your gaems" isn't related to video games
>does /v/ even talk about video games?
Yes, actually. To the point of boredom. 4-5 years ago half the board was off-topic or "gaming culture" shit. Now all those threads get deleted, and people can't talk about the industry/culture without shitposting, so it's essentially become a boring subreddit.
Nice thesaurus faggot, are you done shitposting?
>Calling someone SJW and posting a picture of CURRENT YEAR man as a valid counter argument
>implying you even posted an argument to "counter" in the first place
It was the left who started going into shit that never had to do with politics in the first place causing the right to chase after them.
Even when the right went after violent video games 10 years ago it was never this bad, now everything is linked to politics in some way.
You're bitching about someone using SJW unironically, yet use the "goobergate," meme unironically yourself.
There's plenty of shit within GG that I abhor as well. But here's the thing. I didn't accuse any specific people of being a SJW. I didn't erroneously conflate someone vaguely to the left with most of their political opinions as a SJW.
I merely stated the word given they do exist and they are influencing entertainment industries. Given I didn't specifically label anyone with the word rather than denote that they do exist, your contention of my use of it seems solely born out of sympathy for said crowd and your use "goober..." reflects that.
Here's a protip. Unless you're a SJW or someone is accusing you of being one, there really isn't any reason to get pissy at the word to begin with. If someone's not throwing the label at you, if you know you aren't one and if you aren't contending whether they exist then why bitch about it?
It's just like the silly attempts at redefining it. Neutral people who don't like the term SJW simply stop using it, they don't contend that it either has no basis for existing or rebrand it as "skeletons," to reclaim or defang it. The only people who do that are those the term applies to.
It was both. I don't get how it's so hard to understand this. Both have attempted in the past, the only difference now is that the moral guardian attitude is currently and primarily coming from the left.
>the only difference now is that the moral guardian attitude is currently and primarily coming from the left.
Hilarious that you think so.
And those accomplished what? Did they get the creators of said shows to discuss their bullshit? Did major advertisers decide those complaints have enough merit to pull their support?
It comes from both wings, but the Right is impotent. Nobody takes complaints about family values, insults to Christianity, or degradation of American culture seriously. When Fox News labeled Mass Effect 'Debbie Does Dallas in Space,' for the sex scene nobody took that shit seriously because it's rightly seen as the ravings from out-of-touch, easily offended people who have no idea what they're talking about.
Contrast that to the Left, where people complaining on social media about how sexist, racist or just plain 'ist any of the media they consume is and watch the effect. All it takes is a handful of offended people on Twitter to get a developer in hot water over accusations of misogyny. All it takes is an ideologue or two taking something completely out of context to change the landscape of whatever industry they're criticizing.
When game developers, movie makers and comic writers regularly attend conventions that drill home the need to instill traditional American values instead of arbitrary degrees of diversity let me know.
When the Right comes swinging at games and movies full of sex and people start taking their complaints seriously instead of bending over backwards to accommodate them, let me know.
It's not for lack of trying either. They both do it, the only difference is one side frustratingly gets taken seriously when it happens.
>When the Right comes swinging at games and movies full of sex and people start taking their complaints seriously instead of bending over backwards to accommodate them, let me know.
You cherrypicked examples to support your views, let me do the same.
I don't think you know what that means because that isn't what has happened here. For every example you can find of some supposed leftist infraction there are 10 examples on the right, and you know this fact.
Happenings in India pertain to Indian cultural problems. It's very obvious by my last post I'm talking about the Western world here.
Backwards Floridians wanting prayer in school is something everyone except a religious fundie would oppose. Find me coverage of this story not from someone incredibly partisan or religious who sympathizes.
This is supposed to represent rightwing activists playing moral guardian over the entertainment industry and getting their way? It honestly looks like you just dumped this because it was Christians protesting something. Did you bother to pay attention to what they wanted or what the end result was?
So a court rightly shuts down a Jewish 'pray-the-gay-away,' conversion group and this is supposed to represent rightwing activists getting their way or being taken seriously? Again, find me a source that sympathizes with their ideas (not just the freedom to do so) from someone not a fundie.
1. This happened in Korea. It's a modern democracy and a first world nation, but it's not a liberal western nation which is obviously the point of this contention.
2. The Christfags failed anyway and only made the opposite side more sympathetic.
None of these show Rightwing activists injecting their petty bullshit into the entertainment industry and being taken seriously or getting their way. Even the Florida case is rightly viewed as backwards nuts imposing their religion on others instead of a call for a need to discuss their ideas in any positive way.
Nobody has even heard of the examples that you gave, while it's quite clear from my examples that the left is currently the dominating cultural hegemony.
I don't understand how you could possibly deny this fact. This is one of the main reasons why Trump is currently the most popular republican candidate, and why 4chan is flooded by contrarians who want a safe space from all of this political correctness. The first article I gave even has Obama commenting on this.
Even if that woefully ass-pulled ratio were correct the point remains that while the Right is seen as generally backwards and harmful in its protestations, the Left is seen as a harbinger of progress and carrying a point worth debating.
One; you're talking to two people.
Two; I've never said the Right doesn't try. I'm saying nobody but themselves takes it seriously right now. In the past that has been different as the Hollywood Blacklists and Hays Code show, but right here, right now it's the Left not only doing it, but accomplishing things at the same time.
It's not the Right trying to redefine what should qualify as free speech in the Western world and if they should try they'd be laughed at.
It's not the Right causing universities to intellectually implode all across North America.
It's not the Right telling people what is or isn't OK to put in their TV shows, movies or video games right now.
I'd never make the argument that the Right doesn't try, but to pretend that its current or recent impotency in attempting as such are on any level to what we're seeing from the Left at the moment is quite silly.
I was replying to both of you because you're both trying to claim leftists are the ones doing the majority of the censoring when the right wing SJWs have been doing it for 30 or 40 years.
>It's not the Right...
I guess you haven't watched The 700 Club lately, but it is in fact the right doing all of those things in proportions far exceeding those of their newer counterparts on the left. The right has whole tax exempt universities teaching this doctrine, like Bob Jones University.
Sounds like your attaching an imaginary character to a whole board of different people and opinions from different countries.
Your whole post is retarded I'm trying to imagine your facial expression when you pressed the submit button but I don't want to throw up.
You don't seem to understand the difference here in that while they both do it, only one side has had any recent success in its efforts to censor the entertainment industry to mold it into fitting a political worldview.
People bitching about games needing more God or movies that insult Christianity don't get taken seriously by anyone. People whining for more arbitrary and token diversity or less sexuality/violence in either actually do get taken seriously.
"This game has offensive blasphemy!" vs "This game has offensive sexism!" You and I both know which one would get taken seriously by the press or third parties and which one would get laughed at for what it is.
How are you so convinced it's /pol/ leaking and not just your fellow board members agreeing with them?
People seem to be complaining about ideas popular with /pol/ spreading more than they're actually complaining about /pol/tards venturing to other boards given it's just as likely your fellow board members are buying into /pol/faggotry rather than being a wave of actual /pol/ missionaries.
>only one side has had any recent success in its efforts to censor the entertainment industry to mold it into fitting a political worldview.
Did you see American Sniper? Be sure to see the Benghazi movie, Anon.
>The right has whole tax exempt universities teaching this doctrine
Almost every tax exempt university is teaching feminism now. Most universities have a Women's Studies department spreading their cultist beliefs. It's also spread into other departments now and infected the whole education system.
Up until about 10 years ago you'd be right, the religious conservatives were the ones doing more censoring. But now, religious conservatives have less influence on media than feminists and SJWs do, so it's the latter that's more of a concern for censorship. I'm a leftist but even I can see how shitty it is for certain kinds of leftists to have the amount of influence they do
I'm not saying they aren't. I'd even argue it's a good thing they are propaganda. But the point is that you fail to understand media is indeed largely controlled by the left. Just go to Guardian's Facebook, Buzzfeed or whatever western media you have. If I recall it correctly the only western media that is still largely conservative is Fox News and even Fox is slowly turning to political correctness and if not it's just making more liberals by spitting its retarded shit.
Also I won't reply any more, I just got here by reading the first page and I don't want to stay here for long. You can tell yourself you won the debate if leaving means that for you and it helps you sleep at night
Breitbart exists. Redstate and pajamas media does too. The media is nowhere near as liberal as you seem to think.
Furthermore, I'd argue that the christian fundamentalists that go after The Big Bang Theory for telling a penis joke far outnumber the SJWs on twitter and tumblr that you are misportraying as being the dominating force causing political correctness.
>Irrelevant compared to the rest.
It isn't irrelevant, it's the largest conservative clickbait site.
>Even the bigger one here, Breitbart is widely reviled and more of an anomaly just like Fox News
That doesn't stop them from getting billion pageviews a month.
>But that's wrong.
No it isn't. The Conservative SJW groups are 10x as large an have been at it for decades. The leftist SJWs mostly stay on twitter and tumblr. Not so on the right.
Occupy and BLM both wish they had the support and the level of organization as that of right wing SJWs like the NRA or the Pro-Life Action League.
>It isn't irrelevant, it's the largest conservative clickbait site.
I didn't mean Breitbart specifically, I meant right-wing, non-PC networks in general as opposed to all the other ones that aren't.
>like the NRA or the Pro-Life Action League.
Show me how much these groups censor things. One quick look online and it seems it's always the pro-lifers who get censored. Face it, censorship mostly comes from the left especially now.
>Show me how much these groups censor things
Have you ever watched Cable Television? Do you know why they cut the curse words out of movies and shows on channels even where it doesn't make any sense to based on who the viewership is? It isn't because of the government or the FCC, the FCC has no jurisdiction over Cable Television, only thigns broadcast over-the-air.
The reason why is that whole networks like AMC or the USA network give into right wing SJWs who promise to boycott the advertisers. The Parent Television council has been censoring all networks since the mid 1980s.
Don't tell me that some whiny leftists on twitter boycotting a few video games even comes close to that level of censorship, because that's silly.
Oh look another scapegoat in attempt to disregard anybody who disagrees with you, fuck off retard.
God yes, she is very cute. Best GochUsa, would waifu.
How is that related to the NRA, or Pro-life groups?
>Do you know why they cut the curse words out of movies and shows
This isn't explicitly a right-wing or a left-wing thing. Tipper Gore for example, a democrat, went on prolonged campaigns against the use of profane language in music. I also think this kind of censorship has severely declined.
>The Parent Television council has been censoring all networks since the mid 1980s.
Reading about it, it was founded in 1995. It's also backed by Democrats like Joe Lieberman. It's more for concerned parents than anything.
Look, I don't deny that the right also censors things, just saying it's not quite as bad especially in recent years. Call me when something is censored on a weekly basis because it's considered "ungodly".
>Don't tell me that some whiny leftists on twitter boycotting a few video games even comes close to that level of censorship, because that's silly.
You see this kind of thing happening everywhere, every week. In games, comics, films, culture, on university campuses, on the internet, etc. This kind of hegemonic control and influence doesn't exist on the right.
>How is that related to the NRA, or Pro-life groups?
They're all right wing social justice organizations.
>This isn't explicitly a right-wing or a left-wing thing
The last time Tipper Gore did that it was during the height of the Satan cult scare in the 80s. Stop pretending like it's anyone but right wing christian groups doing it.
>Reading about it, it was founded in 1995. It's also backed by Democrats like Joe Lieberman. It's more for concerned parents than anything.
It's older than that, it was merely incorporated in '95. It went by different names before then, and the founder, Brent Bozell, manages/runs/founded many other similar organizations.
>You see this kind of thing happening everywhere, every week
It's what you don't see that you have to worry about. You didn't see the millions of letters the FCC received in complaints just on the broadcast networks just for last month, not even counting all their activism on cable. All that complaining influences network censors and have a lot wider reach than vanity fair or wired magazine.
>have a lot wider reach than vanity fair or wired magazine.
Those articles I linked were just reporting on incidents and things being censored, not actually promoting censorship. Nowadays social media, and sites like Gawker are replacing the old media so it's what you have to watch out for, especially when you have senators making their voice heard and their type of moralism is accepted. This is only gonna get worse.
That's exactly my point. The right wing SJWs have already been attacking old media for 30 or 40 years and have 10x the membership and infrastructure in place to fight for their brand of great justice and activism.
If there is one thing /pol/ has taught me it's that declaring arbitrary victory is a sign of someone without an argument.

I just don't see it, especially now, sorry, and as I said the old media is dying. Even in the case of religious censorship, this is declining as the West becomes more and more secularized.
Also stop calling them "right-wing SJWs". People who want to bleep out the word "fuck" and "damn" because "think of muh children", or who want to censor things for religious reasons aren't fighting for the concept of "social justice".
lel if only you knew how bad things really are
