The online left is composed of several different, yet oftentimes overlapping sections of the Internet. These include content creators, Blogs and several discussion websites, such as:


  • /leftypol/
  • leftybooru
  • GETchan, a general leftist imageboard launched in 2011. Its history is documented on the United Chans wiki.
  • Nuclear Change, an action-oriented socialist imageboard.
  • rhizzone, a leftist offshoot from Something Awful, started by refugees from the shutdown of "Laissez's Faire" (LF), a subforum on that website. LF basically pioneered left-wing shitposting. The name rhizzone comes from the work of Deleuze and Guattari, which rhizzone identifies with to a large extent. Besides these two authors, rhizzone users are really into Maoism, permaculture, doomerism, and Detroit techno. Its userbase is known for having a rather dirty image, this being due to what has been uncovered about many rhizzone users by the obsessive efforts of Kiwi Farms and earlier fascist Something Awful offsites. Some of the articles on their front page are worthwhile to read.
  • eRegime, a website run by Ismail that is largely used to play political simulations on. It hosts /marx/, which was a board recreated on this website that Ismail ran back on 8chan, where he would answer questions about different things, mostly pertaining to Marxism and socialism.
  • memetides, a leftist meme forum
  • Reddit, which has several leftist "subreddits", or boards
  • Lemmy, a Leftist-leaning Reddit alternative
  • Raddle, another Leftist Reddit alternative
