You're, like...... know what don't go to T_D, it would not be good for you. Moving on.
I'm putting 'news' in quotes because there is nothing new about it. The information they recieve is largely lifted from stories that have already been broken by other platforms such as Fox News, Info Wars or Brietbart. And thats not including them lifting from other subreddits such as r/conspiracy
Are you saying that you cant get Right Wing/Conservative opinions and talking points from left wing comedy shows?
Dont forget Anti Semetic.
Look overall you are right about the donald being popular, but that wasn't the original claim, it seemed like you were coming at it the T_D was the only place to find opinions that were right wing/populist/conservative.
T_D is a fantastic resource. You get to see (a) what the fanatics are on about, and (b) what the actual real life media actually really doesn't want you to see. The trick is being able to tell which is which -- but if you can do that, you should really browse T_D. If you can't tell the difference, regardless of what side you're on, you should probably stay away. But also (c) they got some pretty decent memes, albeit with a dash of persecution complex. So you can get sucked in easy if you let yourself.
Not to derail the current conversation, but something that just struck me as an interesting angle, and to understand the company here better, is to ask the question of, "How long have you been 'involved' in politics?" By which I mean more precisely, when did you invest your time and interest in it?

Let me rephrase what I said, you must have heard of these other subreddits. Again I'm just pointing out to you that the idea that T_D has 100% exclusive content is crazy. They literally lift most of their 'news' from infowars, sometimes brietbart and sometimes fox news. T_D is unique in some ways, but breaking stories that no other sub reddit is touching is just not one of them.
@mdk You must have been on r/conspiracy, Kotaku in Action, Anarcho Capitalism, White Rights r/infowars etc
Dont see many memes coming out of CNN, they seem pretty milquetoast tbh.
right wingers want to make the case that they are calm rational individuals who want to be able to respectfully discuss ideas with everyone and its the Left who are over emotional echo chamber cry babys who cant handle facts, then The_Donald really isn't the best place to justify that characterization.

I went thought there a couple of times. I mostly got the impression it was the sorts of dudes you meet in school who unironically spout memes and try to talk over the teacher. Their opinions seem to be conspiracy theory based for the most part.
@mdk to be totally honest I was just picking the top 3 off topic right wingers I could remember, there is nothing you've said that's particularly off-brand, I remember you quoting a source from The_Donald sub-reddit once but that's it.
Also I should mention that you seem to have actual conservative views and thats miles better than being some broadly politically illiterate reactionary who just blindly agrees with anything that is "Not the feminazis". Like Weird Tales for example.
Keep doing you bro, we haven't got any problems.
I think the right wingers such as pugbutter, mdk, and sleeping silence could learn a lot from you.
