Eh it's become an alt right shithole now. Its golden age, if you can call it that, has long passed.

I got past "Hitler is sexy and liberated Poland from the Jews" and "Mandela was the world's biggest racist" before realizing it was just a neo Nazi circle jerk poorly disguised as "edgy".

wasn't always. It certainly had pages that were, but it was a mixed bag, and the good stuff that was there couldn't really be found anywhere else

Itโ€™s the same problem that every parody site that does this has.

They pretend to be alt-right in a way that anyone with logic will understand is glaringly obvious. Unfortunately, alt-right types are both lacking in critical thinking, and also in personal connections. So, they see a place that posts the things they genuinely believe, and feel like they fit in - even though everyone else is doing it satirically.

Eventually, the alt-right types get more and more populous, and push things further and further, and the logical people slowly start to think โ€œokay this place is a shithole nowโ€ and move on. Aaannndddd slowly it becomes another neo-Nazi website.

This happens often, especially because of how quick and easy it is to make โ€œcontentโ€ nowadays. Satire forums are a dead medium, unfortunately. They will always end up like this unless theyโ€™re policed heavily- and people hate overzealous moderation.

Yeah I was expecting the page to be a little more fun.

I mean, their featured article is dragging Scott Adams. The site isn't inherently alt right. They for instance have multiple different Trump articles, either one of which is guaranteed to offend someone, whether a trump supporter or not.

Have you ever looked at their alt right article?

I just don't agree with your alt right assessment.

They make fun of everyone but people here only remember them making fun of their side
