I'm bothered by anyone who thinks caring about third world kids killed by US policy means I don't care about homosexuals in the US.

I'm bothered by any who puts minor advances for them over the ability to change any thing for anyone. It smacks of a selfish tendency and as a Marxist she damn knows that's how the ruling class controls the proletariat.

Remember that this is a place intended for those who don't feel welcome on other forums because of their political views. This is the Socialist Rifleman forum, not the Liberal Gun Club.

I won't be locking threads here just because authoritarians and capitalists lose an argument and get pissed off as a result.

With that said start some threads we may disagree but but a different perspective from a rational mind breeds intelegent disscution

I think she was aware of the contradiction of her support for Obama and , like most of us who get stuck in a similar position, got real defensive about it.
So knowing I have been guilty of the same thing, I am willing to let it go.
But it's a moot point- I doubt she would join.

She is very aware of why she makes her choices.

Not my place to defend her.

But I will.

You guys (and I mean progurt and Gendo) are in an odd positiom because your are combative, and i am authoritarian. Pretty sure comedian and van, who are pretty extreme, have never been warned, or asked to leave, or otherwise censored. I expect they will correct me if I am wrong. Here AND there.

Ask yourselves why, is it because comedian is tamed by the obamabots? Or because of something else?

You should have a real outlet, no question. So should I. Sometimes, the answer isn't utopia.

It's not worth the energy to go back and forth with you. If I wanted to do that, I'd still be playing in your sandbox.

Honest question Inquisitor: Which is more important? some minor advances in civil rights for some very few people, or an avenue to achieve those advances and more?

As progurt has rightly noted, it's not worth it.

My opinion? It better to have some progress than none, and preserve what we have rather than throw it to the wind in revolution. So yes, defend those we can, when we can.

But, so much for discourse, if you wanted back and forth, you would be somewhere else indeed. Funny old world.

We are doing something different at the LGC. The forums are not the end all, be all. Remember that, in your anger.

For me, the forums are really the only benefit I get from LGC. So when a moderator pisses in a thread and another moderator "moderates" by locking the thread and stifling discussion, the value I derive from LGC is lowered.

I can argue anywhere on the internet. Hell, on HuffPo I can argue with authoritarian sellouts from both the blue team and the red team, sometimes at the same time. Neither group likes having their contradictions and rank glaring hypocrisy pointed out. If I'm on a forum where I'm not looking to argue, I also don't want to hide my political positions. When I share yet another example of civil liberties or human rights violation by any political team, I don't really want a debate between myself and people making excuses for it because they blindly support their team. Again, I can get that from HuffPo or anywhere else on the internet.

Regarding your post directly Inquisitor, I don't have any intention of supporting a club that condones things I find morally abhorrent and legally inexcusable, whether or not it's out of what I consider a decidedly shortsighted and ultimately destructive sense of pragmatism. I really don't want to associate socially with people who are okay with these things. I don't like dancing with the devil, or lying down with any dogs other than my two bulldogs, who are decidedly devoid of fleas.

If I wanted that, I'd join the NRA.

And yes, lemur, the overmoderation and selective moderation is a decided problem. But it's their house, they're welcome to do that there, I'm welcome to leave, and they're welcome to passive-aggressively try to direct their own pet trolls here.

Well, I won't lock any threads unless right- wing trollery is in evidence.
I have a pretty thick skin after years of Leftist political infighting. I lost my cool with goose once or twice but that was due more to alcohol consumption than anything else.
I didn't really care when LGC threads got locked when people had become so crazy that the debate went nowhere. I really did mind it when one moderator closed a thread merely because they were tired of reading about the subject. I was like " WTF? Just don't read the goddam thread!". That just smacked of someone abusing their power.

Threads going nowhere is one thing.

However, in some of instances, some people were having a stiff but civil discussion until a moderator stirred shit up. It happened more than once. There's a solution when someone stirs shit up: deleting their messages from the thread. But that does not result in the suppression of undesirable opinions.
