>>426617 >The problem is when /pol/niggers start to unironically talk about politics on other boards. What is it that makes you think these people are from /pol/ besides the racism? Do you think all racists are from /pol/?
as an expert on the study of modern imageboard culture i am an expert in many different kinds of political activity and have observed shifts in the observed political behavior of various boards over time
recently (~3 years) i have noticed a shift in the political culture that seems to be gravitating towards "/pol/-like behavior" and the alt-right, which appear to be externally driven rather than organic outgrowths of the existing board culture
while i am aware of developments in current events that could naturally explain the rise in alt-right behavior among radicalized users it seems to be at odds with the relative diversity of insane political opinions that were often present before
>>426631 There are different groups and factions that have targeted certain boards for spreading awareness of certain agendas on this site for a variety of reasons. One of these groups is the alt-right, and subdivided among that faction are the clickbait/podcast spammers. I think it sounds like you are falling for the gimmicks of the viral marketing interns who drum up outrage in /pol/-like threads for adsense clickthroughs.
>>426609 >>426617 >>426631 4chan is contrarian, both towards the mainstream (feminism, Obama's presidency, college safe spaces and PC culture overall), and towards websites like Tumblr that promote and spread this kind of culture. Reddit bans radical subreddits. Twitter goes after people with politically incorrect ideas.
4chan is relatively tiny compared to these other websites. There's no other place like it where this kind of anti-mainstream discussion is possible, thanks to its anonymity and relative lack of moderation.
They're not from Stormfront. They're not MRA. They're not from /pol/. These are just feminist boogeyman for this new right-wing "movement" among young adults.
A liberal dictatorship verging on communism is not a very healthy thing. In fact, Obama recently said that he is against this too: it's important to have a fair and open discussion where different viewpoints are allowed and tolerated.
>>426636 while i'm sure these people are active i imagine they confine themselves to the spawning grounds and the rest of 4chan mostly deals with the fallout
>>426641 >the workings of the culture at large are reflected in imageboard culture external culture should be checked at the door and existing culture respected; should you feel the need to change it it should be done by evolving the existing norm rather than supplanting it
>>426648 even on tumblr and reddit you can find people who bash on feminism, college safe spaces and PC culture run away
and to begin with i want jack shit to do with any new "movement" people are trying to import to 4chan

Absolutely. Reddit is a lot bigger than 4chan, so you're more likely to find various communities there. The dominating culture there is however a liberal one, and it's invigorated by the upvote/downvote system. Like I said, 4chan's anonymity and relative freedom appeals to people who would otherwise be judged by the dominating culture.
>and to begin with i want jack shit to do with any new "movement" people are trying to import to 4chan
They're not actively importing it. It just happens. You're either a supporter of feminism, a conservative, an independent or moderate, or apolitical. They don't actively try to convert other people to their beliefs, they're just articulating their political opinions on the matter at hand. They only break 4chan's rules when it's obvious shitposting, baiting, or when it's off-topic, and you can report them if that happens.
>>426662 /new/ was a huge mess. Someone from /o/ stated it was like piranhas with party hats and a Benny Hill theme playing. People who go to the board most likely had a masochistic tendency to argue or get trolled. I mostly stayed out of the arguments because I wasn't informed enough to understand economics or how politics work.
It was also a pretty inclusive board.
There is no archive to view /new/ threads anymore since the sites are all dead.
Get it into your fat fucking heads: Hiroshima-chan is not going to nuke /pol/ when it's the board with the 3rd highest traffic. And if some dumb-fuck of a mod somehow manages to get him to do it, well then... then we'll see a happening, that's for sure. The cancer that was /mlp/ will be nothing to what will be seen.
