because he's a MOD rubber-stamping his own stuff - that's why
(just my 2 cents)

I'm new to ImgFlip but I've been warned about this purgey guy and now I've run across some of his disgusting content

imgflip.com/i/3jwdfj
imgflip.com/i/3jwd53
imgflip.com/i/3jw5rs

There have been even more I don't care to find right now, including one implying Jews belong in the oven.

"politics" is modded, right? I just wonder what the heck is going through a mod's head to approve this kind of shit. What is the point of even having mods if this shit slips by.

All of his alts probably just need to be banned -- why hasn't this happened yet?

The first one, you're really reaching. The second one is bad. The third one, meh, could go either way.

I guess but I don’t think it really makes sense to read them in isolation like that

These are all the product of the same bloodthirsty mind

True, but even Hitler said some things that people agreed with, when they didn't know he was the speaker. (Like that grievance studies hoax where they used a chapter from Mein Kampf, but altered with up-to-date jargon to fit in with leftist and feminist narratives.)

And if Hitler had said "water is wet", you know a lot of people would rather decry that as hate speech than be seen as agreeing with Hitler.

This one hit the front page of "politics" this morning with 30 upvotes and counting.

"Free speech" doesn't mean tolerating hateful violent garbage like this when such speech has the net effect of suppressing speech and driving people away

ImgFlip global mods, please stand up and exercise your own free speech rights to ban him and all of his alts because he is diminishing the ImgFlip experience for the rest of us.

It's pretty meh as a meme, but it's not overly offensive.

And I don't see which part of it is "violent", specifically?

The other one you linked, yeah, I have no idea how that got approved, unless the IMGflip mods really are being sticklers for allowing free speech now.

"Suicide" of the party? "Let them rot"? Not his worst ever, but it's pretty violent. Especially when you read it next to his other memes.

I consider telling someone to commit suicide as basically a death threat. People can and have done so in the past after being bullied online. You never know what someone else's mental health situation is.

So sitting back and watching the dems do stuff to themselves is violence?

If some Lefty posted a meme in PolticsTOO taking glee in seeing Republicans killing themselves and rotting, I think the issue might be a little bit clearer to you.

I'd call that kind of shit out, and I don't think our liberal crowd would upvote that kind of shit at all.

But here we are: with that purgey meme still chilling near the top of the front page of "politics" with 44 upvotes and counting

That has nothing to do with whether it's actually violence.

If the roles were reversed, and the republicans were in as bad a position as the dems are now, and then the inverse of that meme were posted, then yeah, I suppose republicans might be just as butthurt about it as dems are about this one.

But being butthurt about what is essentially a "gloat" meme still doesn't mean the meme is itself violent.

Gloating over their own president being impeached: well, I guess we all need something to be proud of.

Whether you're purgey or not your content is disgusting and violent and you need to calm down or face the banhammer

The funny thing is that actually talking with you is ridiculous and not scary at all

Yeah please tell me about all those lefties you killed last weekend I'll wait

You’ll find plenty of circle jerks around the boring pro-trump memes. But I don’t suspect you need them. But then again, ‘‘tis the season and I suppose those depression meds just don’t have the same kick during the lonely holiday season.
