Only if you resort to politics entirely based on the persons political group affiliation, instead of treating them as an individual who doesn't always conform with that groups norm.

It's an uphill battle for most of the population sure, but it's possible.

Why does that slim minority seem to be the most represented in any alt right community? Pol, reddit and funnyjunk are full of those people, and very few alt righters who aren't like that.

Same reasons that the SJWs of the left seem to be a far larger in number than they really are.

I rarely see any instances of actual racism anywhere I go online. I know that there are some genuinely racist people even on this board, but it isn't representative of FJ as a whole by any means.

I especially don't see the rare instances of legitimate racism on this site or anywhere encouraged or accepted by the other users.

I've also never personally seen much racism coming from those who say they're alt-right outside of what television media has tried to push.

Have you ever been to pol? Any redpill subreddit? Have you read the comments on any redpill post? Do you read breitbart? Theres quite a bit of full blown racism out there and definitely on this site.

#136965 - marinepenguin (12/01/2016) [-]
Yes, yes, yes, and yes. And not really.

Going to places that are specifically known for their insensitivity and racism, and using them as your examples for broader racism on the internet isn't a good argument. Just because I can find a couple tumblr blogs calling for the extermination of white men doesn't mean that the whole site of tumblr even remotely agrees with it.

I don't also don't treat Breitbart as a legitimate news source, but I follow them to a degree and I don't find anything racist about them. They deal in satirical and almost clickbait headlines to purposefully get people riled up.

Dismissing the conduct on the core meeting places of a movement because they're "known for racism and insensitivity" and then denying that this reflects on the movement isn't a very good argument. These places are the mainstream for the alt right and have a culture built more or less on bigotry, how does this not demonstrate racism in that community?

I always saw the alt right as more of the older uneducated or evangelical crowd that got tired of both parties failing and don't really know which direction there is to go so they just follow those who yell the loudest. At least in my experience, younger conservatives are more libertarian in nature and largely didn't fall for it.
User avatar
#136948 - marinepenguin (12/01/2016) [-]
Huh, interesting.

I've only really seen the alt-right as an online movement and thus was bred within the younger generations, as in under 40. I saw it as younger conservatives, who I agree lean more libertarian, rejecting the two parties and globalism in general.

Weird how everyone seems to interpret it as something different. Which I think supports my idea of it being a loosely connected group with really only some basic tendencies uniting them.

I was just going off my experiences with people in real life. I spent a lot of time in conservative groups in college and at the time it was during the Tea Party era and most young conservatives were a fan of Ron Paul and had a renewed interest in liberty. The younger generation of republicans cared much less about banning drugs, and gay marriage than the older ones did. On the internet though it does seem like a lot of young people are getting into the alt right movement but I haven't really seen it irl.

#136954 - marinepenguin (12/01/2016) [-]
Well I haven't either, I definitely have seen many older folks who are disenfranchised with both parties and voted for Trump just as kind of a middle finger to them, but I wouldn't qualify them quite as "alt-right". Or maybe you could, I don't know.

In my experience they're spergy retards, primarily manned by the guys who didn't figure out that ironic racism was ironic. In the past few months I've spoken with a guy claiming to be a fascist, people arguing for racial determinism and people claiming that a slew of people are secretly part of a pedophile ring; the last of which is a near permanent feature of the front page. Not only that, but I've watched them push deeper into regressive territory, they are now triggered by any criticism, they have doubled down on identity politics, and don't seem to want to stop any time soon.

You can argue that they are ill-defined all you want, but some things stick; they're collectivist, nationalist, and right wing...

Seems more like your describing your dislike of the general FJ hivemind more than anything. I haven't had any such experiences.

And well sure, they share some over-arching values but that's about where it stops. Anti-globalist and nationalist I would definitely agree with. Mostly right wing, sure. Not quite so much collectivist I'd argue except for some of the actual NatSocs of whom I've never met outside of the internet, which I'm not sure why a leftist would have any problem with collectivism anyways.

In my opinion the Alt-right is nothing more than a loosely united group of disenfranchised younger people who are disaffected by both the democratic and Republican parties and show disdain for party politics in general. That includes a slim minority of legit racists and xenophobes.

In my opinion to say that the alt-right has a united goal or set of values is to misinterpret what the alt-right is.

the 10-15 pounds/month is what I'm seeing a lot in reviews

what I'm wondering is how am I supposed to cycle the stuff? 1 month on 2 off? or no cycle and just keep taking it

#50919 - marinepenguin (12/01/2016) [-]
Usually 6 weeks
#50905 - baglesbites (12/01/2016) [-]
That's actually pretty impressive, regardless of what he was taking. Was his dosage pretty high?
#50906 - baglesbites (12/01/2016) [-]
Although now that I think about it, I think I remember mendel saying he put on like 5 pounds of water weight on cycle. Your brothers progress is still badass

#50910 - marinepenguin (12/01/2016) [-]
Also mendel as like 150 before he started taking dbol and he's as tall as me.

My brother was like 6'1 and 210 before he took it and he's a little over 220 now and he's pretty lean too.

#50909 - marinepenguin (12/01/2016) [-]
I'm not sure what exactly he took, but it was in pill form from this one guy who just built a gym about 15 minutes from my hometown. I thought about buying some just to see what it was for sure but he was always "out".
