According to their about page “There is much we have learned about the global Marxofascist insurrection — from the likes of George Soros, Maurice Strong, David Rockefeller, and from Ban Ki-moon’s U.N., down to the creeping control of our neighborhoods and lives by their insidious “sustainable development initiatives,” and so many other subversions.”

Analysis / Bias
In review, Gulag Bound publishes original articles as well as links to other sources that promote a conspiratorial conservative perspective. Headlines and articles often contain emotionally loaded wording that favors the right such as this: Pritzker’s Tyranny with Churches in COVID-19 Illinois. When it comes to sourcing they usually rely on far-right or questionable sources such as WND, Epoch Times, and Red Pill University.
Editorially, Gulag Bound promotes anti-globalism propaganda such as this: Globalists Using COVID-19 to Usher UN Agenda 2030 ‘Brave New World’ Ten Years Ahead of Schedule. They also frequently publish conspiracy theories such as those involving Bill and Melinda Gates: Melinda Gates: (Perilous) COVID-19 Vaccines Must Go to Blacks and People of Color Before Whites. In general this a strong right-wing conspiracy website.
Overall, we rate Gulag Bound a far-right conspiracy website that publishes unproven and misleading claims. (D. Van Zandt 8/10/2016) Updated (6/20/2020)
