With the object of hate that spawned them gone, JPR descends into an existential squabble

http://jackpineradicals.com/boards/topic/ch-ch-ch-ch-changes/

Now that the electionís over, we think that the battle lines are clear: JPR is a site for Progressives, Trump ainít a Progressive, so Trump is on the other side of the battle lines from us. Henceforth, posts that praise Trump in a general way will likely go into the void. But itís OK to praise something specific thatís connected to Trump, like his putative student loan repayment plan.

72. So the DU infiltration of trolls WON?? Did TM99 step down or did the DU triolls

succeed in getting him off the site? Would you like ME to step down Manny? Just say so, but when you make that decision, do not speak for me I will speak for me as I have always done.

As far as I know, TM99 was not informed that of what you are claiming. I want to be clear, if you want me to step down please make that request public.

to avoid? I did!

For reporting a relevant tweet that Trump put out.

I just had an argument with one of them here and fellow DUers hid one of their more nasty posts.

That needs to happen every time they pull their BS.

I don't read there.

It looks like the alt-left is arguing with the alt-right.

Do I have it backwards? Is it actually the alt-right arguing with the alt-left?

5. They are confused about who they are without hate so your confusion is understandable

 

Their hate convinced some of them, so called progressives, mind you, that Trump was preferable to Hillary. Some of them didn't go there but supported Stein.

All of that was fine while the election was going on because the one thing that united them was hate of Hillary.

With Hillary suddenly gone, those who want to support Trump and those who supported Stein cannot possibly coexist. Now they all have to figure out who they are without their hate and they have been hating so long they don't remember and as that starts to fade they are all realizing they dont have that much in common, which is causing fights.

Hard to tell who is alt-right and who is alt-left, but the one unifying factor they had is now gone.

79. Yes. We've seen all along that the "alt-left's" hostility

is strongly focused on the mainstream left (i.e., liberals) and the Democratic Party, not against the right. They split on just which opposing candidate to best express their hostility-ballooned-to-hate through.

JPR does also, of course, have a conservative faction. And, also of course, the alt-left and alt-right personalities have far more in common with each other than with mainstream personality types. Do I like Trump or Stein? Hmmm....

They followed the Bernie or Bust train, then transitioned into Trumpville, and now it's changing again and they're unsure of what to do. Not a single original thought amongst the group.

Just like DU. In fact, some people do excellent work on both sites. Sure, I could pick out the stupidests posts on JPR or DU and say that it's representative of the lot. But that's not how I operate.

I did learn a lot reading through Podesta's email that were linked there. Fascinating stuff. Have you read Podest's email? You OK with that kind of behavior??

Quite an article, actually. So thanks for the DK link that led me there.

But even they comment...

Although so far the actual content of the leaked documents appears not to have been tampered with, manipulation would fit an established pattern of operational behaviour in other contexts, such as troll farms or planting fake media stories.

And I'm willing to bet you didn't vote for Hillary.

You want to talk about issues? How about the issue of Russia hacking DNC emails? That's an issue I've talked about and many others here have. What do you have to say about it?

Oh yeah, that's right. You ridiculed those who talked about that. Good day, sir.

Manny is a POS troll that was banned from this site for encouraging others to vote against Democrats. He happily voted for Reagan, and regretted voting for Obama. That is representative of the trash over at JPR.

During the election it seemed to make good business sense to provide a separate space for disaffected progressives who couldn't support Hillary Clinton. It was really a win-win for everyone. But I can't take the thought of running a full-on pro-Trump website for the next four-to-eight years.

53. Some people are saying that you were the one who created the site.

At least that's rumor I've read on the internet.

74. In "1984" Emmanuel Goldstein was the object of two minutes of hate

as a traitor to Big Brother and creator of the opposition Brotherhood. But it was left ambiguous whether he actually existed or was the creation of Big Brother himself. Manny Goldstein would be a diminutive form of that character's name.

7. Ugh...

I looked in there a few times while DU was down. There was so much hatred and vitriol expressed toward Hillary and sheer joy about Trump's win I left thinking Freeperville was a step-up from that place. It was eye-opening to see some poster names that I once considered allies.

My opinion is that it is a hideous site filled with delusional pathetic haters. May they reap the rewards of all their vile hated.

Truly a disgusting lot. No way they don't tear each other apart. With it all being about self to them, they have no way to respect one and other in any way.

32. The only thing I know is those over their are responsible for trump being elected, because

they were part of the supposedly self-identified progressives who refused to vote for Hillary. They have absolutely no standing or credibility in any criticism they have of trump, because they helped him win. They are responsible for putting women's rights, civil rights, labor rights, the environment, and the world at risk because of their actions.

They should be hanging their heads in shame

I also noticed while briefly reviewing that site that it appears to have attracted many of the Discussionist posters from both side of the aisles. So much for being a progressive site when you have idiot CONS posting there.

And collaborate on electing a liberal Democrat.

I would welcome that.

95. there are some here who posted at JPR (since taken down) that they would never vote for Hillary.

One who is here quite a bit said he/she would vote third party unless it was close in his/her swing state and then he would vote Trump. I want nothing to do with such people...who can overlook the true evil of Trump...and would put them on ignore if they came back. There is nothing I want to talk with them about.

98. Oh yeah. There are a few that continued to post here after agreeing to the new TOS who tore Hillary

apart at JPR. I don't know who specifically you are talking about but I do know at least 2 have been PPR'd since we re-opened. Skinner reiterated when we came back that only people who voted for Hillary or supported her if ineligible to vote are welcome here.

I see no benefit in making nice with unreliable "allies." What happens the next time their candidate is not selected by the majority, they again go their own way? Who needs people like that?

91. Maybe, but DU benefits from a diversity of lefty ideas even as we rally around Democratic pols


But no I don't to replicate JPR here. Setting the rules and boundaries works.

There was a Hillary supporter only web site that was also very toxic, but those folks generally didn't bring their toxicity back to DU when they posted here. They, like everyone else, has to adapt to DU rules.

92. Not to near the extent of JPR

Yeah we were pissed and venting and needed a haven, as many of us were long time DUers-- you should have seen my Facebook groups during the primary, it was mild compared to those-- but the "toxicity" of JPR is because it unfortunately attracted the less stable elements of DU as well as a significant number of trolls. Of course it's a fucking mess.

Several people noticed that fairly quickly and noped the fuck out of there early on--some came back here, some didn't. The ones that stayed through pro-Trump bullshit? They can stay over there, unless they bothered to point out how very shitty that was and is.

I don't look over there unless something has been brought to my attention, but even the "discussion topics" list was kind of sad. If it wasn't run by run by a major troll and at least one of the unstable people, it could perhaps, have been a great site, a helpful one. Now it's essentially useless bandwidth.

94. They are not lefties although they like to pretend.

No true lefty would be ok with what is acceptable at JPR...electing Trump is what they helped do...and now they have a butthurt because they can't make pro-Trump posts. Good for JPR for doing that, but I will never forgive them for helping Trump. I go down there from time to time and amuse myself...there posters there who also post here...and Wilms is not alone.
