Ladies and gentlemen. this is a perfect example of if you dont like it, ignore it. you know the way the system works. if  nobody posts on it, the thread doesn't show up  on the thingy.


on the one hand, coming in and ganging up on the fellow is a bit shitty..talk about Antifa being thugs. on the other hand it is an example of how the site ebbs and flows and I guess on some level a welcome


The premise of this thread is simple enough. If you want to talk to the chap about Antifa you will need a minimum knowledge which is set out in the I introduction and need to back up your say with links.

ok, so he is trying a new way of ..outposting? posts which don't meet his criteria. I dont see what the problem is there. praps it would have been the thing to do on other threads which have experienced the same   ..apathy? for the thread guidelines

again. if you dont post on the thread it wont show up on the thing at the bottom. I've posted on this thread, stuff I thought was relevant. while I didn't have an exchange with the host, i did have an interesting exchange with another member

thread is also an example of how the site guidelines trump guidelines which are introduced by a host. that's to say in my opinion as a moderator it's not for me/ us  to remove posts which don't meet the extra guidelines unless a site guideline is broken.

anyhow. just my thoughts

Thread Introduction

“Off the cuff opinions are unstoppable but would prefer anything posted to be backed by highly and widely respected journalists and authors. For example: I would respect the BBC more than Fox News. I would respect the work of authors/journalists who have peer reviewed articles and books on Antifa over those who never did any scholarly work or appeared in major newspapers and magazines. Things pulled from YouTube, twitter, Facebook, does not do it for me. As far as I know ANTIFA has a long history and people who support it fall on a spectrum....a spectrum with a quickly growing number of 20 to 40 somethings...who happen to be out of work with narrowing prospects and choking student loans.”

Don’t really want to post a Joe Rogan Youtube video, but Eric Weinstein presents a model on far left (ANTIFA) and far right (PROUD BOYS) extremist groups that I see as a possible conversation starter for some who want to take this thread seriously. I see Rogan as a slightly left of center podcaster that appeals to a male adolescent to 45 demographic and Weinstein as an intellectual centrist.

* I regret posting this Youtube video.  Trying to stay away from these and could have picked something much better with more
credible voices and experts on the topic.

* Added another info link on Andy Ngo above: he's not looking so good.

* And the Center For Security Policy's background and work does not look so hot either.

Looking forward.

an organization that is being discarded because it is no longer useful to the demonic power mongers.

Are you seriously questioning sources of others while posting links to wikipedia? Even the operators of that site admit their leftist bias. Amazing...
