The last few years have really opened my eyes to how bad things have gotten and how clueless the masses are. I’ve lost faith in my co-workers’, friends’, and even some family members’ ability to see through the obvious and intentional insanity and evil permeating through the world.

If I didn’t have this community to serve as my sanity check and sounding board, I wouldn’t know what to do. I guess it’s natural to follow the masses and just believe what you hear everyday. Literal brainwashing.

I believe I was raised well & was fortunate enough to be blessed with a great education growing up. With that education came the ability to think critically and independent of others - question things, apply logic and rationale. I think we’ve lost that as a society. Reddit, TikTok, Snapchat, and Instagram do not breed critical thinkers, nor those who question what clearly doesn’t make sense.

While I’m glad there are many others out there who see things clearly and rationally, it scares the hell out of me that so many are lost and blindly follow.

I’m hopeful that people will see the light eventually, but for the time-being, I’m so glad I have you all - for the laughs & memes, actual real news, and emotional support that helps me get through the tough days.

Thank you!

You sound like a Californian. As am I. If so it's a double whammy. I'm surrounded by clueless potheads and Communists. Hang in there. You're not alone. We are winning.

Us Cali pedes have a lot to be righteously angry about and there's a hell of a lot more of us than anyone else would lead you to believe. We're definitely not alone.

You guys need to fix your elections, man. Cali is completely unsalvagble due to how brutal the fraud is.

I mean... you're talking about 20 point election swings simply because of vote rigging. It's disgusting what the liberal swamp in cali is doing.

I made these designs for Patriots.win Business Cards that you can print out at home and take with you wherever you go. Then when someone tells you "I like your MAGA hat!" or when you see someone else with Trump/MAGA/Patriotic attire or stickers on their vehicle in a parking lot, stop and talk to them and give them one of these cards. I have been handing them out for almost a year now, and so far nobody I have met has heard of TDW/Patriots.win!

I agree with u/Bt443407 that this site is a total blessing and it has made it so much easier to get through this last year of total craziness in the world around us. After the election was stolen, all of you amazing people here gave me the inspiration to create and post graphics for signs, stickers, and cards for people who want to DO SOMETHING to spread the truth IN REAL LIFE, wake people up, and Make America Great Again. I have had an incredible time and a totally unexpected journey being a part of this big, beautiful community of dreamers, doers, and PATRIOTS! It has truly changed my life and given me such fulfillment to see how much I have been able to expand my voice exponentially, watch my creations spread, and most of all, to see how much joy and happiness I have been able to share with you all!!! :-)

Canuckistani_Refugee 6 points ago +6 / -0

Canadians are absolutely some of the most willfully ignorant people out there. They have little knowledge about how the rest of the world operates, and like to spend most of their time circle jerking about how much better Canada is than the US (regardless if it's true or not). I absolutely cannot stand most Canadians because of how insufferable they tend to be.

It’s amazing that people are suddenly open to Rittenhouse and how he may be innocent.

The footage has been accessible from day one. It shows how people only want to be spoon fed info.

4thWay 58 points ago +58 / -0

Had this argument with someone the other day. I got into it with this leftie fag over the Lee Keltner/Michael Doloff shooting.

He talked so much shit about Rittenhouse, and how he'd be looking for me to apologize when he was found guilty.

Lo and behold, I find him on a thread talking about "Oh, well, nobody should have been there, everyone acted stupidly, blah fucking blah."

Called him on it, reposted his past arguments, then he starts talking about "Well, there was new evidence that we didn't know until now."

These retards don't understand that this shit goes out live. Same with the Covington kids. Within 15 minutes of people talking about, you could find hours of footage, directly contradicting the narrative. Lazy, lying fucks.

Seriously, my SIL and I got into it on FB over Covington because she replied to MY comment on Father Martin’s post, basically I said this story is being twisted and I included a link to the video to prove it.

She wouldn’t even watch it but insisted she knew what happened. I wanted to rub her nose in it when Sandmann won his lawsuit but it’s not like it will change her mind. It’s infuriating.

21
4thWay 21 points ago +21 / -0

I had a similar experience with my own mother over this.

Her entire argument was "I saw the look on Sandmanns face and he was being an arrogant angry little asshole, I raised three boys so I know that look."

I had this printed out and framed. Gave it to her for her birthday.

For those of you that think it was harsh, I'll just say she's called me a racist, sexist xenophobic asshole. Keep in mind, I'm also, not white, and was adopted into a white family. Both my brothers and their wives are based. I've begged* her to listen to reason: she raised me to think for myself, not take anything at face value and to argue honestly.

It hurts me so much inside to see her unable to do the same courtesy. It's destroyed our relationship, and she kept this going for 5 years. All because I said, "Trump was elected, please, give him a chance to do his job before you judge him." Now we have almost no relationship, and she is deep into her twilight years. I love her dearly, and I miss her, but I do not miss her attitude towards me.

Thanks for sharing Pede, you are not alone.

4thWay 5 points ago +5 / -0

I am agnostic, but raised catholic.

I pray for her understanding. I'll be really honest though, the forgiveness part, I'm not a perfect person, and she said a few things that cut very deep. Things that people that hate me wouldn't even say. I try not to hold on to it, but it's like a splinter in my mind.

It's very difficult to hear that from your mother. Hopefully one day before it's too late. I appreciate your support though, this community means a lot to me.

This has to be viewed in terms of a cult.

It's the same dynamic, these people are completely brainwashed, trapped in their ideology and obeying the dogma. They perform the cult's rituals and recite the dogma from their priests on cnn. They attack the heretics and reject their own families. They unthinkingly believe nonsense that is objectively false. Even if you show them clear proof they are incapable of actually seeing it if it contradicts the cult.

Cults are incredibly powerful. They've made people commit mass suicides, murders, and martyr themselves. This is just a 2021 version of the same thing.

I found it more concerning than anything else we've seen. The idea was that everyone was pissed but didn't want to be the first to actually take a stand. When they initially bought into the Rittenhouse lies I realized how truly cowardly and ignorant everyone was. I donated to Kyle because I would spend every last cent to my name if it meant avoiding a hot war. I want to avoid that because I feel I have an inkling of how bad that could get. These people really just think they'll coast along, sacrifice nothing, and it'll magically fix itself. We couldn't afford to drop Rittenhouse even if he had done a few things wrong is the real answer, and they couldn't stomach even that.

I noticed this too. People were very careful not to come out openly in support of him because they thought they'd get called white supremes, and the media was starting the witch hunt, doxxing people who donated to him now everyone is up in arms and all gung go for his defense. I donated 150 bucks to his gofundme, and then another 150 the second his givesendgo went up. He had a lot of private support, but I watched that shit go down that evening and thanked God when I saw him run to the police. Kyle did what none of these people on the right would have. He took action and excercise his rights.

I went on a date with a black girl once at the height of the Chauvin fiasco. The day we went out was the day after that one black dude got shot by a female officer who thought she had her taser. I remember saying to her that it was a joke she was allowed on the police force with a mistake like that. The black girl got mad and told me it wasn't a mistake, that the woman meant to shoot the black person because he was black. I was like, how could you say that after watching the video? It clearly looks like a mistake. The woman was just unqualified for the role and clearly an affirmative action hire that should not have been in that position. The black girl continued arguing with me and I asked her if she even watched the video. She said she couldn't bring herself to watch the video because of how racist it was.

That is your average leftist.

atrix 6 points ago +6 / -0

5
TruthDefenseForce 5 points ago +5 / -0

Well, quite honestly, she lived up to all the black stereotypes. She was an immigrant from Nigeria but came over when she was very young. Raised by her grandparents of course cause dad left and mom was a whore lol....

Restaurants were closed for sit-in in my city at this time due to the covid fiasco. I suggested she come over to my place and we order food. I wanted to order from this nice Italian restaurant but she turned it down cause she didn't like the menu. She then suggested we get fried chicken from Popeyes instead. I turned down that idea and convinced her to order fried chicken from some Korean place. She of course had never tried it. She ended up admitting the fried chicken from the Korean place was the best she has had in this city.

I suggested we throw on some Netflix. She wanted to watch King Kong and commented how much she likes King Kong. She apparently had just watched some other King Kong movie and wanted to watch this other one on Netflix.

When we discussed the police shooting, I asked her where she got her news from. She told me the website. I checked it out. It's literally a black supremacist website but of course, it'll never be called that. It catalogues news that pertain only to black people and always paints every story from a pro black perspective. If the website did the same for white people instead of black, it would be labeled a Neo Nazi pro Hitler website that is antisemitic and needs to be banned from the internet. It was really bad bow biased it was. Sadly, I found out it's like one of the top 10 most popular websites black people use. That really opened my eyes to why there is such division in the country when that's the kind of media black people are consuming. If white people consumed Neo Nazi media every single day, they'd probably be pretty hateful to Jews, just like many blacks are hateful to whites. Ironically, she was still went out on a date with me though. I have lots of money. Some things transcend racial hatred I suppose lol.

Date kind of ended poorly. She looked like her tinder profile which was pretty hot for a black girl but sadly, her skin quality was just too poor for me when I saw her up close and despite her curves being quite nice, I just couldn't find her face attractive, mostly because of poor skin quality but also too wide a nose for me too. The black supremacist undertones probably wouldn't have worked out well given that I'm about as white supremacist as it gets.

I had a good discussion on mixed race babies. I didn't realize just how detrimental being a mixed race kid was but she brought up a lot of good points about how difficult a life it would be for mixed race kids. Probably best if she sticks to black guys and I stick to white girls. It's a shame though that black guys are poor and noncommittal while white girls have rejected their role as women. For what we were looking for in a partner both of us were a match but obviously struggle with people of our own race because of modern cultural issues.

Well, I'm moving out of a big city of 1m+ to a small city of 40k people. Maybe I can find a decent girl there but I fear now that I'm 33yo, it might be too late for me. Something I won't compromise on is the woman can't work. I'm only interested in stay-at-home housewives. Generally speaking, in small towns, if the girl isn't married /w kids before 25yo, there's a reason and it's not generally a good one. That's why I say my age is likely a barrier now since 20yo girls find me too old for the most part.

I was going to get involved at the Presbyterian church in the city I'm moving to. Hopefully it's a good community but I find it difficult to go to church at least here in the big city because I've never found a community of Christians with morals and values that align with my own or imo, what the bible also says.

I am racist because I care about improving myself and my community. If you cared about doing the same, you too would be racist as well. Race is real and people are in fact different because of their race. Given race, there are certain ways to structure society that are superior for one race but not necessarily another. We are all not the same.

I agree with you regarding Jesus but Jesus is nothing like a modern Jew. That is the only distinction I make, just like how ancient romans are nothing like the romans you find in Rome today either. Lots of Jews and even subverted Christians like to pretend modern Jews are like Jesus and they are not like him at all.

I am single because most women, especially western women, aren't actually worthwhile in modern society. It's not a me problem, it's a systematic problem that all the data supports. If you look into it, relationships are on a steady decline and have been significantly since the 50s. This is partly why western leaders push immigration so much because they effectively destroyed the family, birth rates of domestic peoples (not including immigrants or children of immigrants) isn't even at the sustainable rate. This was specifically done though because new people and especially people of differing races are much easier to control politically.

I think it's foolish for anyone not to promote their own "tribe". This sort of pretending we are equal to everyone else has done nothing but weaken our people.

TP4bunghole 2 points ago +2 / -0

No way, you're in prime age. It's a good filter - a early-20s girl with a head on her shoulders will be more attracted to your age, and if you're "too old" at 33 it's an indication of where her priorities are.

atrix 2 points ago +2 / -0

Thanks for the writeup, I miss hearing stories like this.

Good work on helping her have a new experience - it's amazing how so many people fall into ruts and don't even want to break out of them.

Pity about the outcome of the date... but I know the feeling. I used to go on 'blind dates' with strangers from tinder all the time, saying nothing more than the desire to meet up for a cup of coffee and get to know each other. I love the adventure of it... and it was really interesting to me the things I began noticing in people that turned me off, that I hadn't ever really considered before.

Regarding the mixed-race babies... I wonder how different that'd be in other countries. Here in NZ, we're quite... well, "multi-cultural", literally about half the country is immigrants, and I wonder if a mixed-race kid would have any extra issues at all.

Her source of news... I can't say I'm shocked. The more fucking nuts the world gets, the more people crave a 'safe space' - a reassuring echo chamber. Sigh.

That's what they want, to atomize us and keep us from preserving a culture or community.

They continually talk about "colonialism" because it's their method of how to take over--basically show up in force somewhere and just take over. They've done that by creating institutional biases that favor leftists. While screaming about any biases that might accidentally help someone other than them, the real goal is institutional bias for them in all places.

They don't care about consistency, they just want to take over. You can spot them by their lack of principles.

It's very important for them that we have rules to follow, and that we are held accountable whenever those rules are broken, while they get to do whatever they want.

There's a very obvious example of this in our language. See if you can guess which word I'm thinking riiight now.

Long_time_lurker 9 points ago +9 / -0

I dunno, there are just too many:

  • Racist - referring not to Democrats lynching people while wearing bedsheets, but statistical anomalies in poorly run studies by people who think math, milk and other things are "racist"
  • Sexist - from people who don't believe in sex because a pedophile named John Money told them that imaginary genders are what we should study)
  • Homophobic - which is not in the DSM, and refers to disgust, not fear
  • Islamophobic - same as above
  • equity (not referring to stocks, but the idea that people who had nothing to do with a thing owe others for historical wrongs committed by people with the same shade of skin as them
  • Whiteness - a motte-and-bailey setup to pretend they're okay with white people when they consider the phrase "it's okay to be white" hate speech because it shows that they do hate whites.
  • Sealioning - a meme used to privilege them against having to answer questioning bogus assertions they make in public all the time, in which the author of the original source meme in the comic Wondermark - found here http://wondermark.com/1k62/ - had to disavow the fact that his comic was straight-up racist as can be seen if you sub any race for sea lions.
  • Gish gallop - a meme that privileges them from having to offer any sort of rebuttal when there's too much material being offered against them
  • Privilege - Something they claim to be against, but in reality are only against other people having, because they constantly privilege themselves and create memes to do the same.

I got to admit that this one isn't true. I myself have been a little shit more than a few times. We all have bad days. That being said, I do try to be respectful most of the time.

I had this conversation with my daughter today (super based btw - I am proud).

We talked about feedback loops and how devastating they are to critical thought. People get trapped in their own little worlds where everything they see and hear re-enforces a forgone conclusion.

People who are able to look past the feedback loop dont get trapped - but so many dont spend the time to go beyond the comfortable feed given to them.

What makes it worse - is that journalists are supposed to draw back the curtain and do the work to dig into the facts - but they became lazy and just listen to the feedback loop.

Politicians are the most vulnerable to the feedback loop. They blow with the wind and what they feel is consensus. They are so out of touch as a result because they think social media is an accurate representation of public opinion. It isnt at all as we all know.

Great comment. One gripe. Journalists and pols aren't just lazy. They're positively corrupt.

Tredge 2 points ago +2 / -0

I feel many became lazy, drawing on social media for their sources. Some became greedy, following the money. And others simply decided the role of a journalist is to change the world, however they best see fit.
In any case - they themselves are falling victim to the feedback loop.

I remember back in 2011. Whispers going around that Trump might run. Heard it from my dad and we both, timidly at first, thought that would be a good choice. We wanted a businessman to cut our financial spending and organize the government. If we knew then what we know now. 2014-15 rolled around and it seemed like he was going to run. I kind of liked Cruz but was A-OK with Trump. What a ride. Didn't find .win until a few months before the fraud because I'm no redditor.

zestygobble 12 points ago +12 / -0

I commend your aversion to Reddit. I joined FOR TD at the insistence of a coworker. Funny, my dad was all in for Cruz. I laughed at the notion of a Donald run at first. Obama had me so fucking black pilled I didn't give a fuck about anything political. I came around to Trump quickly, but only cuz FTW, you know? Let the reality guy with the shit wig burn it down. Then the craziest shit happened... he reinvigorated my patriotic sense of duty, my faith, lust for life...etc. It's been wild, man.

I saw more in Trump. He was bombastic, unapologetic, and patriotic. At a time when everyone grovels to every edu-washed brainlet European who thinks America is the world's toilet, Trump said it's time to show these cucks who's boss. He didn't have to explain why he knew we were the best, he knew it because he grew up here, as anyone who has should. I saw an old loyalty to a country of people, not a country of government beaurocracies trading our success for quick cash over seas. I have my disagreements with things he did and didn't do, but I understand he did what he thought was best for us, as in him and I, as well as you and everyone else. I respect the shit out of that.

ConservativeTeacher 2 points ago +2 / -0

are you, me? First "pro" Trump for the entertainment value, thought if he won it would be a 4 year WWF Wrestlemania show, but then the Hitler-ification of everything took the fun out of it, he did good things, showed cajones regarding China, then I was on the Trump Train for real, not in a sardonic "burn it all down" way. But now back to burn it all down, as had the GOP fought even an ounce, Trump would still be there. I'm never gonna forget EVERY swing state is controlled by Republicans, yet not one has audited the results. Essentially, the GOP is more responsible than even cheating Dems. I mean you expect Dems to cheat, it's in their nature. But swing state GOPs? Judas. SCOTUS? Judas.

Trump isn't perfect. He's a fallible man. What he proved to us is that he actually gives a shit about the country and our wellbeing. He isn't going to magically see through every ploy and get everything right. I know people liked to imagine he browsed .win back in the day but it's hogwash. As soon as we've got someone else that put it on the line for us the way he did, I'll stand behind them. He is literally the only person in decades who has given even a half assed effort to reverse our current trend.

MakeWorldGreatAgain 4 points ago +4 / -0

Well said. Imo Trump's biggest accomplishment is all the eyes he opened to see the propaganda, lies and corruption. And as he said after his presidency; this is only the beginning. The MAGA movement he started will live on long after he's gone.

And when a bunch of people showed up on 1/6 to put it on the line he shamed us and ran with his tail between his legs instead of being a leader.

They did try, when we were TheDonald, they bought out the website owner, and they shutdown the website.

PW came about when the old mods got together and made PW and split the ownership equally amongst themselves, so a situation like what happened with TheDonlad wouldn't happen again.

I still wonder to this day, how much money they paid that traitor cunt. I wonder how much it was worth to the DeepState/Cabal of elites it was to shut us up.

For me, it's often been quick and easy to get perfect strangers to understand things that the mainstream media keeps from them. But getting my parents to see the same thing, even if it's plain as day? Just doesn't get through to them.

Part of it is sort of this feeling of, "well I've known you your whole life, how could you possibly have any exceptional knowledge or understanding?" You're familiar to people around you in a way that precludes them from re-assessing you as someone with valuable insight.

This is where my username comes from. Living in a blue state, and dealing with the Trump haters on social media, I'd started to fall for the narrative that people who thought like me were a dying breed. I felt like a house keeping a porch light on, in the very small chance somebody might see it, in the night. Somebody who thought like me.

Searching for information to argue with, I came across TheDonald. I fell into this army of hysterically funny and brave patriots. I learned about the power of memes. I taught myself about centipedes, Pepe, Kekistan, spez, and coat bots, and I never left. This place gives me hope! And I'm still learning from everyone here.

Completely agree. I feel like I live in upside-down world these days. I’ve had a lot of friends I used to respect drink the kool-aid too. Once they join the vax cult, they’re pot committed and start singing the cult’s tune and talking points. It’s really weird and I know most of you must’ve experienced something similar. Think about explaining today’s landscape to someone in 2019. They would all say impossible and that they would never go along with forced injections and such. My how quickly things can change. Also a warning for the future. Hold the line!

The fact of the matter is seeing through the smoke screen is not enough. The brazenness of modern criminal politicians has reached hubris. They have to be brought down. I don't know whether that's going to be a national or international event, but at some point some group of some portion of the population has to take one for the rest of us. There is no end to this if we peacefully try to resolve the situation as Yuri Bezmenov warned us. We have become destabilized and it's not just the US anymore.

Husband, father of three, sibling to many here...it's the fucking screens. "Convince" a friend or family member to share drinks at the bar or go for a quick sandwich, but no phones (screens) allowed.
The first 5 minutes without the phone, and most people crack. They(We/I) can't stand being forced to deal with our own thoughts, deciding things by ourselves without the "approval" or "fact check" of some wiki or crackpot blogger. Don't think you have a problem? I challenge you to leave your phone in the car next time you go somewhere with others. It will hurt. Some won't make it to the front door. But keep walking. When you leave the store, you will leave with real memories and emotions. The bond with those in your presence, experiencing the world first hand, is priceless and beyond compare. Prove me wrong, you won't regret it
