I had a chance to look at some of the links that were in the last post and wanted to comment on them. The policy for this blog is to publish examples and thoughts from users on The Huffington Post about the censorship policy. I’ll publish any relevant article that someone wants to post doing as little or as much editing as each poster desires.
I don’t want us to get side tracked to specific issues or left/right ideologies. An earlier post talked about gun control and took a very pro gun control point of view. However, I also welcome people who are strong supporters of the second amendment. So I will post any comments or examples regardless of the politics or opinions expressed. However, after looking at the links in the previous post I just wanted to make a few things clear.
If I were the Huffpo editor I would have rejected the Jesse Ventura article on 9/11. It didn't contain a single link or footnote even though there are plenty of sites and articles for the various truth movement theories that are put forward.
Also, there is a reference to the Cristopher Bolyn web site. After looking at it I believe this guy is a clear anti-semite. I'm not one of those people who think that any criticism of Israel or Zionism is automatically anti-semitic. But the Cristopher Bolyn site wasn't the kind of principled criticism of Israel put forward by people such as Norman Finkelstein or Noam Chomsky. His site was just anti-semitism.
So I view that post as a good example of how open I would like this site to be. Even though I don’t agree with most of it I’m going to leave it posted just as is since that is what Abbybwood and I agreed to.
