A tech forecast for the future of conservative social media


It’s 2016. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are standing across from one another on stage as NBC’s Lester Holt prepares to kick off the first of four presidential debates.

The event starts off per tradition, and the first few moments are filled with pleasantries and introductions. But then Trump answers the first official question.

The crowd is stunned by what they hear. Trump’s dropped all pretense and said he’s going to “build a wall” and that “Mexico is going to pay for it.”

In rebuttal, Secretary Clinton merely shrugs and says “no, totally. I like it. Let’s do that.”

She then steps to the edge of the stage where she proceeds to lead a round of applause for Trump, urging the crowd into an excited frenzy.

Trump leaves his podium to join Clinton. Together they stand at the center of the stage, their clasped hands raised high overhead in a triumphant moment of American unity.

That never happened

But, essentially, that’s what life is like on conservative social media sites. No, they’re not writing Trump/Clinton fan-fiction over on Parler, Gab, and GETTR.

At least that would provide some sort of controversy or drama. It’s just boring over there. 

Without libs to own or opposing viewpoints to rally against, right wing social media sites are pretty much just a bunch of people with their backs to each other yelling different versions of the same message.
