The following article, Report: Online Conservative Content Leads to ‘De-Radicalization,’ New Data Shows (Details), was first published on Flag And Cross.
Apparently, some people believed that online “conservative content” was radicalizing the uninformed. That couldn’t be more ridiculous from the jump, considering the uninformed aren’t reading conservative content.
The uninformed are busy on HuffPost and BuzzFeed. They are not even remotely interested in real news and facts. They just want to hear what they’re already thinking. They need their facts confirmed. Check this out, via Daily Wire:
A new study out of Penn State’s Political Science Department found that rather than conservative content online leading to radicalization, as the popular “gateway” narrative insists, the reverse appears to be true.
The study, titled “A Supply and Demand Framework for YouTube Politics,” published online in October, takes a closer look at the popular narrative that YouTube serves as a “radicalizing agent,” particularly for the right. Conservative content, the narrative goes, supposedly acts as a “gateway” for viewers, potentially leading them to the fringes of the far-right.
Contrary to the ‘gateway drug’ narrative, new study shows the Intellectual Dark Web (i.e. @jordanbpeterson @prageru @joerogan @benshapiro @RubinReport ) is de-radicalizing potential Alt-Right viewers

This is likely to make a few liberal heads explode.
Then again, they’ll never know about this study because they don’t read what they should be reading.
Biden’s gonna do Joe Biden whether thousands or, more realistically, dozens are in attendance.
That was the case in Iowa on Monday, September 2.
No many people showed to hear Joe speak because nobody really cares what Joe has to say.
Given his gaffe-prone ways though, it might be like attending a comedy club if you get sloshed right before showing up!
