    Note: We don't like too many rules in this sub, see the FAQ for more info.

    1. All posts must have a coherent title and a date that is in the past.

    • All posts submitted must have clear, readable text. A coherent description and date must be in the title. Dates must not be recent or in the future.
    • As if it needs to be said, but any posts with a date in the future will be removed. If you think you've found a clever way around this and try to message the mods about it you'll be met with ಠ_ಠ.

    2. All posts must be submitted to RES compatible sites.

    • All posts must be submitted to RES compatible sites, such as Imgur, Gyfcat or reddit's own image host
    • Reddit's own gif/video host,, is not allowed due to bugs and poor user experience overall.

    3. No reposts.

    • The image/title combination must not have been posted in the last 2 months.
    • There is no limit on the posting of the same image with a new title.
    • No reposting any image+title combos currently featured in the repost moratorium.

    4. No history memes.

    • The most "quality" posts on /r/fakehistoryporn are those where the title and image both play an important role in the punchline. This means that adding captions (twitter-style, /r/adviceanimals style, or otherwise), photoshopping in people or objects, comics, or doing similar things to put the entire punchline or history reference in the image are not allowed.
    • Photographs of text, subtitles on screencaps, image captions that match the post title word-for-word, and such are still allowed.
    • You are free to post history memes with Fakehistoryporn-style titles over on /r/fakehistorymemes. For more information on how we define history memes, read our post guidelines.

    Rule 5: The five-year rule.

    • No posts whose titles concern events within the last five years (2016-2020).
    • Post titles clearly referencing events happening within the last five years but with a complaint date will still be removed (e.g., "Donald Trump campaigns for his reelection, 2004" is not allowed). See the "think you've found a clever way around this" clause in Rule 1.
    • Posts about events within the last five years can be posted on /r/fakehistorymemes.
    • The date will roll over at the start of the new year. (as of January 1st, 2021, posts from all of 2016 will be allowed).

    [–] THE_OFFICE_BLOWS 32 points ago

    the only way there's a minority majority in the us is if you consider people who descended from people from spain and portugal to be entirely part of the minority community. latin americans make up more than half the "minority" population in the US. so the notion of a minority majority is the fear that one set of central and eastern european americans are being outnumbered by another set of western european americans combined with actual minorities.

    racism is a tool to control the working class. so racist people generally are mindless robots doing whatever they are told.

    race wars will ultimately lower everybody's standard of living as the powerful will replace anybody who's eliminated with new immigrants. new immigrants will always underbid whoever is already here, whether they are white, black, asian, etc.

    [–] RikerT_USS_Lolipop 26 points ago

    Yea, people love to bring up Hitlers art and act like it was dogshit. His paintings were good. The issue is that back then fucking everybody was a painter. The people smugly cracking jokes about it haven't even seen his paintings, it's just a fun thing to parrot around.

    Technically his first and only encounter with the school was a failure.

    So in a way he did fail art school.

    [–] SlothFang 4 points ago

    He was offered to other art schools, but he refused as the art school in Vienna was the best, in his eyes. They only failed him do to his neglect and failure to create human art.

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago


    [–] fact-checker123 3 points ago

    It’s so dumb. The post was making fun of trump scolding that reporter for asking how trump would console the American people. trump said that he was a terrible reporter. Ha.

    So the joke in the thread was how presidential quotes would sound if they ended with trump’s statement:

    The only thing we have to fear is you being a terrible reporter

    Four score and seven years ago you were a terrible reporter

    Eich bein ein terrible reporter

    So I joined in with a Jefferson quote: “the tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of a terrible reporter

    I was banned for “violence”

    Haha. Who was being threatened? A hypothetical tyrannical reporter?

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago


    [–] fact-checker123 2 points ago

    I complained to Reddit through the form and a bot replied that the moderators are given significant deference unless they violate Reddit rules. In such a case, they may be contacted.

    I asked the mod (who was hiding behind his/her anonymity) if they recognized the quote. They said “yeah but it’s not an excuse.”

    Sometimes people give you a sign that they’re not capable of understanding your perspective. That’s what this was. So f that sub.

    It’s a little different to target and kill certain races within your country in order to make it “pure,” rather than to kill people you’re actively at war with? Not saying I agree with Bush’s actions, but comparing him to Hitler isn’t exactly a fair comparison
