Your thread has been a remarkable example of the successful operation implemented by the leftist website owners to censor the conservative voices that dominate the political aspect of imgflip.

How do the Fun people interact with the political stream? They "don't go there"

Congratulations godda. You've kept your flock stupid and terrified, just the way the left likes it.

Sorry, but sometimes people like to take a break from politics. No one is obligated to "go there". Also, What do you think it would accomplish? If you get a flood of people commenting on subject matter which they do not enjoy, or want to be a part of what GOOD will that do? People are not unaware of the political climate, nor are they ignorant of the issues and problems going on. They just don't like to be constantly bombarded nor do they like being dragged into debates and hostile exchanges.

I have seen A LOT of times when someone commented humorously on a political meme only to be attacked for their remark. The attackers assume wrongfully and proceed to drag people through the mud needlessly. The militant and drastically hostile nature of these exchanges is what has driven most of us away from the political discussions here. You cannot reasonably expect people to come to a site where they are looking to get a laugh and enjoy the activity to go and engage where the exchanges are downright nasty.

So really, if you miss us so bad then you can comment in our fun comment section. Just leave your politics "over there*. Your response to this humorous meme about almost commenting on politics further proves and drives home the point I make in this comment.

Your meme is a good example of an argument I've had with mods on this site. I didn't mean to offend you. The hostility you detected wasn't addressed to you, but rather the important people that monitor my comments.

People didn't have to interact with the political memes before but they were still exposed to the ideas from the memes that would make it to the front couple of pages. They were almost always conservative. This infuriated the sites management to no ends. Their solution was to create separate streams to keep the masses from being exposed to conservative ideas.

Most of the streams are wastes to hide the fact the split was only for political memes. Cats but no dogs? Repost? Games? Farses.

The mods could have made a topic filter, allowed users to choose their own homepage and what streams are in them, but instead they chose for us and ensured nobody would be exposed to the conservative memes unless they went looking for them. The only people that go looking for them are conservative memers. The term they use is "echo chamber."

Your meme is humorous, I laughed at it and the comments. The truth isn't as funny. I'm sure I'll be receiving some flak for my intrusion into the grazing fields.

They were exposed to the ideas in everyday life. On the news, in there other social media feeds, on bumper stickers, raido, youtube, conversations at work, home, etc.. This is not the only place where these things are discussed. We are saturated with politics. EVERYTHING is politicized, even this fun meme site where we ought to be able to escape the tiresome political conversations. The only thing you said that really bugged me was, "You've kept your flock stupid and terrified, just the way the left likes it." As if somehow laughing at this very subject of the separate streams is somehow brainwashing the imgflippers into ignorance.

The powers tha be at imgflip only separated the streams because we all but begged them to do it. Though we didn't really want all these streams so much as we wanted to just check a stunking box to filter out the politics. I do not like this current set up. I think one stream that we can customize to our liking is much more user friendly and better for all of us. But that's just my crazy idea. I don't visit the other streams. I may post a cat meme now and then, but that's the extent.

I don't think that imgflip is trying to prevent people from being exposed to any conservative meme or ideas held therein. I think they just took some great suggestions and screwed them up.

My main question for this exchange we have is why would you want people who aren't interested to check out your political memes? I will say, I visit the pages of other users a LOT. I see all the stuff I do not see in the fun stream. The politics (and nearly commented on one or two.. LOL) The sports (God help me......) And the Gaming. (no friggin comment...) But It doesn't bother me to "see" those things at the end of the day. These things are all still out there for everyone to see and interact with.

I think maybe you wanted to engage the subject here. No harm in that. Having this conversation is not quite the same as intruding and forcing an unwelcome subject. So no harm done in my opinion.

All of the places you've listed heavily censor conservative voices as well. It's an epidemic. Trump says "unleash the memes", Schumer says "enough with the memes".

Imgflip isn't brainwashing you, it's all the other media you're exposed to that is. Imgflip's management has decided to side with the censorship and is aiding in the mass silencing.

Your statement about imgflips intentions is wrong. They Are trying to censor conservatives and have completely succeeded. They put us in a box, called it the "echo chamber", and laugh at our futility. They only open the box to let in trolls to keep us pacified into thinking we're fighting the good fight.

I want people exposed to political memes because there is a revolution happening that the mainstream media is doing everything they can to cover up. People need to know what's happening. Memes are the most powerful weapon in this fight. Spend a little time in politiflip and your mind will start to be opened to the truth conservatives are trying to unleash. You have no idea how serious the political situation is right now unless you're actually researching and involved. We're teetering on the brink of WW3.

I'm glad you understand that I don't mean to offend you. I have a bad reputation because I'm mean, nasty and inconveniently honest. In the spirit of honesty, Fun stream users are 90% blind sheep. You all have no idea what this website really is. The time will come. Follow the white rabbit.

PERSONALLY, I don't bother with all these other sites, media etc... I was speaking generally. Because these are popular places. And yes, a lot of them do censor conservatives. Outright ban them on plenty of occasions. However, a separate political stream is not censoring. If anything it has created more freedom for those who want to debate to actually do so without the uninterested flagging them for harassment. Unless there are spiteful and hateful people over there (and I know that there are) spitefully flagging comments and memes then no one is being censored. To prevent a person from speaking freely is censorship. Political memers may still speak freely, they just have to do it in their own neighborhood. The same as the sports enthusiasts and gamers and cat memers. Of, and there is a dog stream. It's one that you may click to follow. Apparently there is a whole wide world of user created streams that you have to go looking for.

I think If I want to have a place in this life that is free of politics I should be able to have it. I don't want it shoved down my throat at every turn. If I want to see what's new or how things are going I go searching for it. Shoving it into the faces of people who do not want to be bothered with it here is not going to do anything but drive people further away. It's that forcing on people and then insulting them when they do not want to argue that has caused this great divide between political memers and the fun (or sports, gaming... etc..) We all have a right to CHOOSE. And people do just that. They choose when and where they get this information. Just because the do not get it here at imgflip does not mean that they aren't getting it somewhere.

I do not shelter myself or live in a bubble. But I do decide for myself when and how I want to get political news. I think that using imgflip as my source for news of any kind is just as bad as watching any mainstream media news where the spin is obvious.
I'm glad we are able to discuss in a civil way these points we both make here. I do understand where you come from. Nice talking with you.
