This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
The message boards have been upgraded. Please log in to your existing account by clicking here. It will ask twice, so that it can properly update your password and login information. If it has trouble recognizing your password, click the 'Forgot your password?' link to reset it with a new password sent to your email address on file.
The RPGPundit's Own Forum Rules
This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind. Note that this is the only part of the site where political discussion is permitted, but is regulated by the RPGPundit.

"But the left..."

No. That is not the topic. Focus.

Propaganda, according to Wikipedia, is communication that is used primarily to influence an audience and further an agenda, which may not be objective and may be presenting facts selectively to encourage a particular synthesis or perception, or using loaded language to produce an emotional rather than a rational response to the information that is presented.

Nobody provided no evidence. I guess that's that then.

Where's your evidence?

If you can't provide concrete evidence, then shut the fuck up and go back to Portland, pinko.

Punk sucks and the Cold War is over. Your side lost. Get over it.

Remember, according to the racist left aspects of white supremacy include punctuality, delaying gratification, and merit-based recognition.

But it's the right spreading propaganda and hate.

I think you should provide examples to support your argument. I can see where that might come from but at the moment you're just making a sweeping statement that'll just annoy people.

Why I'm not surprised, you "can see where that might come from"?

So you have your own list of suspected Alt-Righters?

But I'm the one peddling conspiracy theories no?

So? Everyone uses propoganda. (Left, Right, Center) The question is how accurate are their claims versus how persuasive they're attempting to be.

Let's start with defining our terms. What does "alt-right" mean?

The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

If my English translation does not fail me, nobody providing no evidence means that somebody provided evidence.

I can see where that idea might come from but I'd expect some sort of evidence of it as otherwise it seems a bit like conspiracy peddling through a bit of hand waving. Does that make sense? I mean at first blush they've come across as waving nonsense about but mibbe there's something I missed.

You seem to be assuming the worst which may explain your own hand waving.

That's the saddest part, at least to me.

Math is as impersonal as it gets. Numbers don't give a shit about your race. But they're so desperate to derange everything as 'white supremacy' they'll wind up making themselves educationally backwards if not illiterate.
