Before I start I'd like to tell you that I rarely frequent Reddit but started going back to look at wallstreetbets and some other stock subreddits to see what all the hype was about.

I stumbled across a post from r/Conspiracy. It was about how Politico "fact-checked" Maxine Waters and said she in fact did not say "Trump supporters were not welcomed here" even though we all know she did. I regret doing it but I clicked to read into the comments. Holy shit the idiocy I was reading. People defending her and trashing OP because they said "She said Trump cabinet members were not welcomed, not supporters". I swear the subreddit rather defend the liberal agenda than talk about the fact that "fact-checkers" were clearly lying or altering the context. Then they switch the topic to Trump incited the "insurrection". It's completely compromised. They have turned in r/Politics but worse because they consider themselves independents but they clearly love defending the MSM.

I try to talk without biases. But damn you can't even say anything remotely good about Trump with out an army of libtards completely bashing you. Hell, you can'y even bring up the fucking conspiracy that there were fraudulent votes. Any talk against the MSM there and you are attacked.

I know most of you know this already but I just wanted to vent because it's bad that a place that prided itself on non partisan conspiracy talk is now just r/PoliticsJr

Reddit has changed so much over the last 5 years

They've also monetized good think with a cryptocurrency, paying people to push their propaganda.

This is not a new observation. It was last good in late 2016, and then after the 2016 election it turned into a half shill storm of topminds gobbling on with a bunch of conspiracy 101 normies constantly asking "which conspiracies are true"

"which conspiracies are you all most interested in"

I'm not even convinced those are normies but actually normieposeur forum agents who just create more "benign noise" to blot out the signal

Came here to say just this (or something like it anyway).

Shills absolutely everywhere in that place. Completely infested. It's disgusting really. Oh well.

Well, she did expressely say the cabinet (watched the video). This argument would be defended better if we focused on the fact that there was no attack on democrat reps by republicans saying to from crowd around them to "push them back" The twitter girl was the one twisting the words and it doesn't look good.

Sounds like bait to me.

It's so bad now, any negative comments about the DNC get downvoted and attacked by bots

Was just reading that and retreated back here to sanity!

I wasn't aware of exactly how bad things are on Reddit at the moment, but it's not surprising in the least sad to say. I was ushered out the door with a ban maybe a year ago, literally never going back except for maybe cruising some r/GameDeals. Place is almost entirely a leftist cesspool by now, quite a shame as there used to be something worth saving 😥

Well yeah.. I remember back in 2015 it was pretty cool but it's become shit

They still have the moderator list hidden, roughly one month after "the purge".

Also, the subs mod-log isn't working.

This tells you everything you need to know.

So you're saying it's some kind of conspiracy...

/r/pics is also a dumpster 🔥. Some genuine pics infused with a steady stream of exclusively left wing propaganda.

As a general rule any subreddit that runs contrary to the established narrative is either compromised, or will be compromised soon. Or deleted.

To be fair all the .win sites are no different, instead of liberal bias its conservative bias. It's just the conservative conversations are being kicked off reddit and into their own place. It's silly to think conspiracies.win is bipartisan.

There's been a political divide in just about everything.

Reddit/.win

Twitter/Gab

Youtube/Bitchute

MSM/OANN

What annoys me about OANN is they claim their not biased but they are.

There's no news networks that just report news. There's always going to be talking points and interviews about opinions on the news.

You can't say you welcome bipartisanship while at the same time call people shills for the other tribe you don't like.

this is true, but the conspiracy posts on reddit are posting things like cnn to prove the op wrong lol. They are essentially saying it's not ok to post conspiracies in the conspiracy sub.

So news today is that Reddit received a 1/5 billion cash infusion. My guess as payoff for job well done, and continuing to do. So no surprise that this San Francisco company is supporting all the leftwing shills and trolls.

Some Bias are good, and necessary.. Also Natural. Kind of like Stereo Types, well some of those are protective.

I actually thought there was a period last year when it was decent. Now I think they have removed most of the wrongthink subs and while people took refuge there for a while, it is now constantly brigaded by people looking to attack wrongthinkers. It's a huge shitshow now like the rest of reddit.

I miss 2012 r/conspiracy :(

I know, it was already devolving by that point. But the threads on sandy hook, boston bombing, were so cool to be part of.

They take things over. That’s why they talk about free speech until they are in power. Look at the ACLU or UC Berkeley.

I had an idea of making a reminder that "all the real (few) users of this sub have moved to conspiracies.win" but then im just afraid i'd invite 10x more shills than actual users.
