I used to think /pol/ was just a bunch of edgy kids, pretending to be cartoony supervillians for laughs or something, along with a few genuine sociopaths who just want to watch the world burn.268 posts and 220 image replies omitted. Click View to see all.
But it seems like a very large percentage of them not only unironically believe the drivel they spew, but actually believe they're somehow the good guys despite holding violent, horrible, damn near objectively evil beliefs.
I try to wrap my head around it, but I can't. How does it work? What kind of mental gymnastics are these people doing?
They say once you've had a bit of "the redpill", the "truth" becomes evident to you and you never go back, but I've been bludgeoned over the head with "redpills" by these fucks ruining all my favorite websites since 2012, and if anything it's just pushed me further left and given me an irrational dislike for even moderate conservatives, for being useful idiots for these trolls.
It's because of scapegoating. These people have problems, go on the internet and see some vague shit about the reason for the problem, and after believing it mob mentality commands them to follow these ideals the greatest extreme. Happens with left leaning communities too.
Literally the only time I seen someone explain it this well.
