/pol/ is a sub-board, on the 4chan image board. /pol/ stands for Politically Incorrect. Topics cover a wide range of subjects, including politics, culture, social issues, religion, law, finance, and current events.

People are free to express themselves anonymously, in challenging, enjoyable, and occasionally quite offensive, debate. The regular posters on /pol/ tend to be a rather conservative, anti-multicultural, and anti-feminist, although a wide range of viewpoints are regularly expressed.

Like it's big brother, /b/ the "random" board, /pol. is not a place for the faint of heart. The language can be vulgar, the discourse brutal, and no one is given respect, you must earn it, albeit only temporarily. /pol/ is eeeeeeevil. Comment on a forum by Omomon

I’ve seen this a lot on 4chan… a lot on /pol/… don’t ask. Comment on a forum by Kyntak

/Pol/ly Pulpit,
(October 04, 2013)

A place where, under the guise of anonymity and extreme free speech, people show their true colors, often disregarding what would be deemed un/correct (and sometimes, straight up illegal) anywhere else. e.g: rolling back on the right of vote of women, deportation of afro-americans to actual Africa, and some things along the lines of "Hitler should have actually killed 6 gorillons jews", yet always (un)ironically end up to be right while doing so

The most ethnically diverse white supremacists in existance, btw

/pol/ ("Politically Incorrect") is 4chan's political discussion board. A stickied thread on its front page states that the board's intended purpose is "discussion of news, world events, political issues, and other related topics." /pol/ was created in October 2011 as a rebranding of 4chan's news board, /new/, which was deleted that January for a high volume of racist discussion.

Media sources have characterized /pol/ as predominantly racist and sexist, with many of its posts taking an explicitly neo-Nazi bent. The Southern Poverty Law Center regards /pol/'s rhetorical style as widely emulated by white supremacist websites such as The Daily Stormer; the Stormer's editor, Andrew Anglin, concurred.

/pol/ was where screenshots of Trayvon Martin's hacked social media accounts were initially posted. The board's users have started antifeminist, homophobic, transphobic, and anti-Arab Twitter campaigns. Many /pol/ users favored Donald Trump during his 2016 United States presidential campaign. Both Trump and his son, Donald Trump Jr., appeared to acknowledge the support by tweeting /pol/-associated memes. Upon his successful election, a /pol/ moderator embedded a pro-Trump video at the top of all of the board's pages.
