I'm fairly new to the forums, I am just curious on why there's so many political posts!

Abandon ship, save yourself friend. There must have been some post on Stormfront or r_the_donald saying this place was ripe for the trolling.

Because some of us have lives and interests outside of anime, but we hang around here a lot so we also talk about non-anime things here too.

Some people like to talk politics. That is why there are different sections for anime discussion and general discussion.

Anime discussion isnt allowed in general so it tends to be nonsense threads or political threads. Polls have their own section too so many questions go there.

Because you're in the section for general discussion, IE, the catch all for discussions not given their own board.. And there's a WHOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEE section of anime threads over there, if you want to talk anime instead of politics or cars or bloggers dying from exploding whipped cream cans.

The rules of General Discussion are pretty flexible when it c9mes to what you can post. I guess there just happen to be a lot of ops interested in politics.

Here is my own explanation: Crunchyroll is not only about anime/manga; it is also a gathering of anime fans to discuss real life events.

It's commonly on the minds of several dozen people, and started by only a handful or two.

Googled 'stormfront crunchyroll', nothing relevant.
Googled 'r the donald crunchyroll' and saw there was a thread about Trump advertising on here during the election. I guess that's what he's talking about?

I figured it might've been the flurry of cute anime girls in MAGA hats and SS uniforms that seemed to catch on for a while (not that the two are comparable, just that they're both found in those places). Of course, if that really bothers someone there are always cute anime girls in Soviet uniforms to counter with. A good meme war might do CR General good. Lighten the mood around here.
