I heard about alternet.org from Robert Reich; a man I respect immensely. I have to say I'm not impressed, don't expect a rational discussion. There is a clear bias, and it depressing how people attack each other in the comment section. Most of the subscribers are Caucasians who act like they are somehow champions of the liberal world like being tolerant is a competition. The whole thing had a daily beast vibe only the website is not as flashy. The web design is atrocious tbh. I tried commenting on a post of about Bill Maher being an Islamophobe and was immediately called a right winger, and a bag of crap for trying to defend him. Like not even 5 minutes after I posted, one of the resident commenters with almost 4 thousand upvotes just laid into me and started attacking my personal character, not only that someone flagged my comment as spam and it's been almost 12 hours and it is still under review. lol, it was little ridiculous. I enjoy writing, and I enjoy debating people but this left a bad taste in my mouth I'm done for awhile. You don't have to attack people to get your point across regardless if you are democrat or republican. I lean left on issues of equality and civil liberties and honestly am continually disappointed with the people who represent the republican party. I expressed my disdain for Trump, yet still was deemed as an intolerant right-winger.
