The general population is becoming more "right biased," so it shouldn't be all that surprising this is reflected throughout various online communities.

Get used to it. The pendulum is swinging back after a couple decades of globalist lefties in power. Just the way it goes. Nerd communities in particular are swinging more drastically right due to SJWs and progressives giving them so much shit over the last couple years.

Sounds about right.

If you don't adhere blindly to SJW identity politics you are now a racist, bigot, misogynist, and any other term Tumblr can throw at you. Some people who would traditionally align with the left are being forced out for daring to disagree with anything, not exactly a welcoming feeling.

Well, see, Trump mostly appealed to the Internet Troll demographic--And the fantasy he was offering the trolls was that if they came to his rallies and voted for him, The Trolls Would Inherit The Earth, and drive away all those mean people who graduated high school.

And now, just because the world's least likable Democrat lost, they think they HAVE inherited the earth. Er, nooo, slight difference.

Someone should ask news networks to help them advertise so their funds empty within the week.

Those ads look fake, offering to pay $18/hour for what would probably be canvassing or making phone calls. There is a group here that has posters for real jobs that involve going door to door to raise money for other groups, with few benefits.

Clinton pushed for a war with Syria and possibly Russia in the near future (her no-fly zone proposal), fearmongered about Russia, is for corporate globalization and probably doesn't really oppose the TPP, seriously suggested using a drone to assassinate Assange (so I've heard), opposed the public option on health insurance, etc. so I can't agree with the idea that Clinton took the Democrats left and on some issues Trump may be left of Clinton. Bernie Sanders would have taken the Democratic Party to the left, but the Clinton faction got rid of him and denigrated left Democrats. Clinton's platform seemed to be, vote for her out of fear, to continue Obama's policies, and because she is a woman (yet if people had voted for McCain-Palin in 2008, they could have elected the first female vice president), not because she offered any big progressive ideas. They say Clinton is a policy wonk, but when I gave her website a chance, it was hard to find details on what she proposed to do.
Gets It.

If anything, it proves that SJWs actually have somewhat of a point. To cause people to shift over to a right-minded mentality just because a bunch of people push against them means that those people were too insecure to handle a bit of a challenge, to begin with. Many of my friends and colleagues complain that they hate being treated like a minority (note: they are, like myself, white men) by SJWs. Several of them voted for Trump because "it's stupid that white males are the enemies when we haven't done anything". It's anecdotal but I see similar comments on Reddit from "hardcore" Trump supporters in nerd-heavy communities.

I guess it just "triggered" the white men to be treated like a sub-par group of people because the cards are stacked in their favour, despite not being part of the foundation of what created that bias. Unfortunately, it just shows that the demographic are just as sensitive as those they're trying to "protect" themselves against.

You're close.
General Discussion has the whole "Hilary Clinton is part of an international, pedophilic child trafficking group." conspiracy theory in quite a few threads. I'm not saying that Clinton is a flawless saint. She's screwed up with the e-mails; just that they cannot stack a case strong enough to prove that it was a criminal offense or just a case of carelessness. Somehow, though, that converts to a string of her being at fault for killing our own people in Benghazi, being part of an underworld child trafficking organization, and she's had people killed who disagreed with her.

The problem with "nerd communities" is that they're quick to find other sources that agree with them. Once enough people agree with your assumptions it becomes a fact. If you can find an article on a conspiracy site that connects a few dots that "the left-minded sheeps" aren't looking at then it means that you're correct and they (the "liberals") are ignorant to the "reality that's around them". That, on top of the insecurity of the typical white male that gets "attacked" by SJWs equals what you see here on CR and similar sites.

I'd say that "gets it" appears to be a very apt rank for you.

I'm not sure I follow here. Even if these are ( somehow ) real and not, you know, Craig's List being Craig's List; What's the problem? Should all political organizing, activism and thus free speech simply cease because God Emperor Trump won the EC? You don't want them to protest or riot. Now you don't want them to organize, campaign or otherwise try and make themselves heard?

That's not how democracy, let alone America, works.

It really isn't. Its just becoming more polarized in American discourse and the yelling is getting louder as a result. Sprinkle with a taste of curated social media echo chamber. Throw in a demagogue that ran around telling the worst of humanity their dark, crazed inner thoughts were acceptable in polite company and you get this mess.

Here's my thoughts on that. I remain skeptical in just the same way I remain skeptical about the things people say about Trump. While I'm skeptical, I do believe is it's highly possible such groups have worked themselves into government. Rejecting that idea completely is just as foolish as the media rejecting the idea that Trump could have become president.

I have recently started chiming in on some of these conversations because I found them interesting. Since I do have other things to deal with in life I don't see myself being perpetually involved in them.

Well yes, I see your points, but I still identify as a left centrist whilst condemning the idiotic SJW left. You don't have to forcibly shift to the right if you weren't there already, it's not so drastic a measure. Politics aren't strictly left and right extremist camps, although political polarization is making it appear that way- I've almost always been somewhere closer to the middle but with more liberal undertones, that is where I'll stay. And I don't particularity like Trump, by the by. Wasn't exactly a fan of his opponent during the election either, but I found her to be more tolerable than him.

I remember a third of the government workers threatened to resign if Trump becomes president. He's already creating jobs and reducing the government.
