Trump Support Banned on RPG.NET
Just found out yesterday that rpg.net has done something I never realized was coming... but probably should have.
Posts supporting Trump or his policies are officially banned! That's it. No more debate, discussion, or even pretending to see things from another's point of view.
In rpg.net's defense, many of them are suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome and think the current administration is actively trying to murder anyone who isn't a straight white male. On the other hand... this is fucking crazy!
The far-left has driven itself so far from the middle that it may just go over a cliff. Hey, these are drastic times, and if they want to use drastic measures to insulate themselves from the orange leader, then the big purple can remain gray NPCs... I guess.
Personally, I think things are going to get worse. But perhaps that's the price we pay for attempting to make America great again? I don't know.
RPG.net's latest action is one of the warning signs, one of many red flags we've seen over the last 3 years. The troubling thing is that scrolling through twitter, one in every ten posts is another nail in the coffin of civility, centrism, and common sense. If it's not a video game getting boycotted, it's some anti-fascist fascist harassing black people in coffee shops, or yet another mass shooting!
But WTF can any of us do, except ride the wave without our heads exploding from extremist propaganda? Oh yeah, and if you think Trump is extreme, buckle up, buttercup. Announcing he's a Nationalist means we're only "in the middle of this insane circus."
At this point, I don't believe any kind of investigation, Mueller's or otherwise, is going to end his Presidency or these divisive times.
Good luck out there!
p.s. About 24 hours left to back The Last Alpha Blue Supplement.
