What the fuck is up with Reddit? The site is home to some of the most venomous hate-speech I've ever seen on a mainstream board, yet they dilute themselves into thinking that everyone else are hatemongers that get all their information from "faux news" Do they ever consider that their own opinions may be poorly formed considering that they get all their news from a source that literally believes the opposition is Satan?

They pride themselves on "free thinking" and all that bullshit, but they operate like a hive-mind that shuts out and actively seeks to destroy any sign of dissent. I try to avoid it's idiocy, but every time I get linked there I can hardly tell the actual political posts from /r/circlejerk.

I neither agree nor disagree becase frankly I've only been to reddit once, but regardless you've made a very good point. But you say "I try to avoid it's idiocy" which is ironic because we're on FJ xD. I mean I love FJ and all, but there's some really stupid people on here too.

Funnyjunk has a lot of idiots, be we don't hivemind like reddit does. Reddit just hammers the same ideas in relentlessly until the only two remaining groups are those who believe it and those who left the site because they can't take it anymore. This is why virtually everyone on the site has the exact same opinions.

Sounds a lot like FunnyJunk

Pretty much every single one of the main 20 subs are hivemind central.
Do not know how I stayed subbed throughout the campaign to /r/politics. The Ron Paul shitstorm was so entertaining but this election was just the closed minded bullshit from every blog in the dimmest corner of the internet.

Also: fuck /r/atheism /r/funny /r/politics /r/gaming /r/all

While reddit is a circlejerk, isn't everything? There exists no real unbiased forum or newstation because people are involved, and people are biased. Any politics has to involve bias, because people have to come to conclusions about candidates they don't really know, based on moralities that are developed by humans so are naturally biased and differ by region so there will always be dissent, and any real projections are based on economics which is not a very predicable science. If there is an unbiased news forum, I would love to hear about it.

What else can be said? Reddit's a prime example of a circlejerk, like you mentioned.

Just like r/atheism where half of them spew anti-religion and claim "I BELIEVE IN SCIENCE, NOT A FAKE GOD" when most of them probably haven't passed a Science class with anything beyond a C or a B.

It's Bandwagon central, just like how our very own front page was (and occasionally regresses to) a few weeks ago.

One word. Liberals.

The most intolerant group in America today.

How does it feel to be the typical Conservative?

How does it feel to be blind?

You're the one spewing the hate, thinking politics is just Liberals vs. Conservatives.

I'm not sure who's the blind one here.

Implying anyone else in politics matter. Where is my hate? I'd love for you to show me. Have I wished cancer upon people? Or talked about any of their wives in an inappropriate way? Look at liberal twitter profiles compared to conservative. You'll see.

You're the typical example of someone who enters politics for the wrong reasons.

Instigative, inflammatory, immature.

Most of your comments don't even add anything to a given topic, it's just "Liberals are dumb as fuck" "they're the most intolerant group ever!"
It's no different then the bandwagonists of Reddit that do nothing but call names and do the same thing you do.
You're no different than Reddit's intolerance.

Liberals only like you if you agree with them. A la Chick-Fil-A

The same can be said to both conservatives and liberals. That's why I'm independent.

Blaming one end doesn't justify the other.
