OK Zoomers, listen up
During Obama's second election cycle, the mass radicalization of society you see now began in earnest, which may have just been an extension of the trauma of Obama's first win in 2008 - the horrifying spectacle of a coon in the White House. Regardless, it really kicked into high gear in 2011-2012.
There was this thing called "Femshep" for Mass Effect 3. All across the videogame industry, a concerted push for Femshep as a beacon of feminism was launched. She was to be the marketing cover for Mass Effect 3, a female Shepherd. They were really pushing for gay sex in the game too.
Then there were the 4chan janitor leaks in 2013, which exposed how severely Redditized 4chan administration had become. This led directly to the birth of 8chan (board creation to circumvent the politically corrupt mods).
Gamergate happened in 2014, which blew the festering extremism bubble that was inflating since 2011 wide open. 8chan became a cultural power during Gamergate to rival 4chan.
Gamergate's ripple effect led directly to Trump.
Trump essentially ended the world.
Fast forward a few years and Ron removes the /pol/ moderation because he was psyoped by /intl/ in the operate board, and because he was being a hypocrite towards Imkampfy. Ron made /pol/ global, which effectively turned 8chan into a train with no brakes. /intl/, /trannypol/ and a plethora of bad actors rushed into the board and began fedposting en mass. Massive gaslighting and false-flagging, because they wanted violence to happen so 8chan and /pol/ could get shut down as they had failed for years to split or cripple /pol/ by normal means. So /trannypol/ and /intl/ turned to violence as a last resort, and sure enough some tards popped off, and there went 8chan.
Now you are here on tvch.moe, a descendent of 8chan.
Now, going back to the beginning, what led to Obama and the right-wing nature of Gamergate?
9/11 and the resultant Middle Eastern Bush wars led straight to Obama, but they also led to the birth of the Alt Right in about 2008-2011. /pol/ from the beginning and Gamergate were just the mass popularization of a broad spectrum of Alt-Right webzines that were churning out content in 2008-2011. A lot of people forget that part, because they weren't paying attention or they simply aren't old enough like me. So Gamergate was really the child of the Alt-Right. I remember articles being published on Radix both mocking and sympathizing with Gamergate. Mocking because "heh, you listened to us but you didn't really believe it, now they hit you where it hurts," and sympathizing because leftists are obviously disgusting to any right leaning person.
