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.

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.

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.

Past tense, because getting an education is "acting white".

"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.

So many lizards dropping tail. They love to dish out shit but they can't take it when someone gives it back. But that's OK, I'm not calling out their shit for their benefit.

I haven't blocked you.

Now, since OP isn't here and you are one of the most left-leaning posters ever since I went rightward and quit being a center-left liberal (seriously, in 2016 I supported Bernie Sanders because I was that naive) then I ask you a question...

What would you consider "Alt-Right propaganda" on this site, what is your definition of "Alt Right", and who would you consider to be "Alt-Right"?

Actually, Sammy, I'm not a Left-leaning poster. We've had discussions before, and you know that. What I am against is Right-leaning posts with no substance that get thrown out as click-bait and make reasonable Conservatives cringe. Unfortunately, many of the posters here push up YouTube bits with heavily biased commentary that obscures any real information. That's the kind of thing I consider propaganda (but I don't know if that's what the OP is referring to). Then those same Right-leaning posters do nothing but pile shit on anyone that questions those shit sources. So, I've had enough of it and have decided that these unthinking fucks can have a measure of their own medicine.

Edit: Sorry, missed part of the question. As to what is Alt-Right? I'm not entirely sure, and that means I'm not saying that any particular posters are Alt-Right. I also don't throw out terms like Fascist, Marxist, or the rest with any seriousness, but sometimes I'll use it as a counterbattery to some of the assholes here that are quick to label anyone that disagrees with them as some other. Some of them even go further and advocate for violence against the other after taking the time to separate them from whatever us the poster clings to as their identity. It's a shitty mindset to condemn others for their beliefs rather than actions (e.g., if you want to say shit about rioters for rioting, I'm all for it, but don't just attack all of the Left because they're not all doing that shit).

Understandable, to be quite honest.

Although, I'm still curious on a few things.

What is your definition of Alt-Right? And what makes it different from regular conservatism? And who on this forum would you consider to be Alt-Right?

So, nobody. I noticed you only have 3 posts since 2017. Have anything to contribute to the RPG sections of the forum? I'd hate to think you're just trying to drop a troll post and then dashing.
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.

Greetings!

I don't have some "imaginary" vision of America. I know it has existed, and remains to this day. However, America is under attack and being undermined by people that hate America, by Marxists and Globalists. I don't think we as Americans should kneel to them. I don't think Americans should appease the traitors in our midst, those that are out in the streets killing innocent people, attacking, burning and looting. Americans everywhere need to stand against the Marxists seeking to overthrow our nation.

Semper Fidelis,
