Should Neo-Nazis be allowed to post on this forum?

I know nobody here is crazy about censorship, but where do you draw the line? Should we let known Neo-Nazis and Stormfront recruiters post here?

That was actually the individual who inspired my post. Short story: e is an active stormfront recruiter who goes onto web forums to spew his propaganda and recruit people to stormfront. His real name is Kevin Smith. Dude is a serious asshole.

My personal perspective:

It is in fact personal property. But then, why speak in a closet just to preach to the choir. Our goal is to reach the hearts and the minds of the American people. Those who oppose that are no better than the opposition.

Just as in our local communities...

we must practice what we preach, and reach out to those who are unaware.

I personally welcome any and all to participate in logical, well-informed conversations - something that most in America have been missing for quite some time.

Who posts on DP is not a democratic decision. The DP is private property, owned by Michael Nystrom, who makes the ultimate decision, or choice, who posts or not, with the trusted help of the Mods.

Sure, why not.

I can't understand why socialists in any form, such as Nazi or Neo-Nazi would want to post here, but if they do then they should be challenged at all times. Of course Michael has the final say.

No, and thank you for this post.

I thought of posting it myself. Its just my opinion and I am well aware of Michael's autonomy and respect every decision he makes, but I hate it so much.

It is disgusting and ignorant and totally contrary to what this site has been about for me.

Racism, how ever eloquently or subtly it is presented, should not be tolerated whatsoever IMHO.

Mike, if this is not my place to comment, I apologize.

What's a storm front

What's a storm front recruiter?

If you censor one

you might as well censor all.

Mike censors plenty

Just sayin...

ok

A counterpoint is that neo-nazis are posting here under false pretenses. While pretending to be libertarians, they actually support national socialism, an ideology that is diametrically opposed to libertarianism. They use this forum to promote their own ideology while discrediting libertarianism. I am not suggesting there should be laws against them speaking. But this is a private forum, for supporters of Ron Paul. Choosing to remove people who are wolves in sheep clothing and are doing tangible harm to the libertarisn cause seems like a reasonable decision.

So.....

whadaya say we support what he says that supports libertarianism?

And vote down what he says that supports national socialism?

I know where the down-arrow is.
