That place feels like an online klan meeting.

I can only imagine. Just trying to read the Packpride sports board was brutal enough. I gave up on that years ago. NC State fans are the worst (generally speaking).

There’s an incredible psychological overlap between

-Blaming the Refs/John Swofford/NCAA/“UNC deep state” every time your team shits the bed
And
-Blaming minorities for everything bad that happens to you or your community.

It allows one to never have to critically review themselves/their teams’ inadequacies, instead preferring to believe in their/their teams’ god given flawless superiority.

Seriously, this could be some psych students PhD thesis.

I could definitely see a correlation between thinking that referees play favorites and thinking that elections are rigged.

I used to check it regularly to hate read, and then 2016 happened

it was jaw-droppingly racist back then, and I’m pretty confident in guessing that it’s gotten worse since 2016

That place turned me off to NC State athletics. Their off topic board is basically complaining about minorities and the latest reactionary takes. Pretty much echo chamber where they reassure themselves that they’re right about their worldview. Few people on there who are white nationalists.

There used to be a guy on the Wolfpacker board that was basically advocating for Christian holy War. Eventually they shut down all political talk on there. That was prob 5-10 years ago though

It's an interesting safe space they've carved out for themselves there. The cognitive dissonance is remarkable. Couple of them, I think, are just intellectually disabled who consume right wing content and post all day to reaffirm those ideas with others.

The political discourse is very limited and becomes predictable.
- Ideas they don't like are [liberal/Marxist/Leftist/Communist] (these terms are used interchangeably)
- Racism doesn't exist and if it does, it's against white men. There's almost an eagerness to want to be the victim. They claim the "other side" makes everything about race yet race related topics are usually the most popular.
- No nuanced discussion or understanding about topics. Ideas fall into discrete bucks. Good vs evil, us vs them, red vs blue. They either don't understand history or context or pretend not to care.
- They feel they are not "sheep" who follow the "MSM." They spend all day reacting to topics from the media and mostly have the same opinions.

My older coworker was all about PackPride. I told him my Klan robe hadn't arrived yet with my PP membership card in it. Fuck that place, but let's be clear IC isn't much better.

Never read much stuff on IC. Lost interest in sports a while ago.

^Screen name checks out. Glad most of that has been purged from here. I guess we need to be aware of that mindset, but dang it's annoying to constantly confront.

I used to post there a lot arguing with folks ~10 year ago, now I still have a weird fascination with reading their fucked up bullshit. Some of it is truly unbelievable.

Same. Haven’t been back to PP at all since the months prior to 2016 election. It was bad and getting worse then. I can only imagine that it’s continued to get worse.

I think State fans tend to have a bad reputation. Political leanings aside, it’s probably pretty deserved. PP, even the general sports stuff, was always disappointing to read

^^I'm sure that based on the scene, if she had been allowed through the window to where members of Congress were, many others would have streamed in behind and the situation would not have been controllable. She was dumb. She's dead now. Totally preventable. By her. The doors were locked and barricaded.

The guy with the Reagan avatar is a white nationalist. It’s amazing how little he gets challenged on that site. The other day they were casually discussing eugenics.

I blocked PackPride about 2 years back. I believe he is doing active harm to our name, recruiting and his entire worldview actively works against NC State's educational mission.

But then again, it's totally in-line with the knuckle-dragging element of our fanbase who only care about 2.5 sports (always crying about UNC/Duke basketball, despite the actual UNIVERSITY kicking UNC's ass all over the place academically/flagship for the past decade) and view our teams as their personal property, demanding their needs for a pound of flesh be made.

I think they still obsess over Herb Sendek and talk about the glory days of the 1983 championship. Had that Al Bundy 4 touchdowns in a game feel to it.

The thread about black people and interracial couples in commercials.

Commercials aren't people.

Herb and Hodge were an interracial couple, though!

The abortion thread over there delivered. Everything from discussing what rights people have, jocular contempt for women who support abortion rights, discussion about segregation and suggesting who should be sterilized.

Maybe those hogs can take a break soon and post pictures in their food thread.
