If you want downloads for those old shorts, the CIA published a bunch of them for download as part of the dump of Osama Bin Laden's hard drive:

Puts me in a difficult place of saying either "Thanks Bin Laden!" or "Thanks CIA!" Tho I guess I could cover both with just CIA shoutout... Happy to have the cartoons regardless.

what’s a good reaction gif for when you’re the new person to a community but you have to wade through all this weird faction bullshit that you don’t understand

Apparently no one thought to make a gif of this clip, which I think captures the dynamic perfectly.

is it really a faction when they come from a different site where all they do is post twitter screenshots of aoc and sanders all day, hyperventilate over China's latest economic policies and talk about how stalin wasn't a pedo because the age of consent was 13 in the ussr?

The problem is they think they have anything in common with raddle ppl

I’m so confused. i want to ask “why do they give a shit?” but i know there’s no answer to that question.

Ooh let me try.

ChapoTrapHouse has a leftist comedy podcast. Someone made a subreddit for it. The subreddit grows beyond the podcast and gets real cringy. Some real weirdos obsessed with China, Mao, and Stalin become mods of the subreddit. The subreddit gets banned and the userbase looks for alternatives. Raddle exist. The old subreddit mods declare raddle an anti left unity zone of evil and build their own website, Chapochat. The most toxic users of the old subreddit go there (and some other poor saps). Turns out one of their mods may have been grooming kids. Now I guess people are getting banned for insulting the mods. Again raddle exists.

because americans are obsessed with competition and productivity. they've been programmed to approach everything like the ceo of a venture capital firm.

Prior to (uh) thinking deeply about the context in which I exist, it was my life ambition to be an investor at a VC firm...
