Big Lin, you and I see this series of postings quite differently.
The first paragraph in the posting you quote is close to word by word by Mike. In my opinion, it applies here more to you than anyone else, as you have been more vitriolic in your comments to other posters here than anyone else. You (and I guess Mike) have decided that only your experience is valid. That only what you have determined as truth is the only valid truth. That others had better follow your positions or ‘suffer’ the consequences.
As I have said, it is your forum and you can do as you wish here. You can even, ask the questions and then provide the answers. You can make the assertions and determine that all ‘must’ accept them. That your answers and your assertions do not fit my experiences and knowledge apparently make no difference to you. And they most assuredly do not. It is singularly your way and no other and your comments to others are often less than civil. So be it, as this is your board and you can make this world where up is down and left is right and thick is thin, or anything you want.
I remember once you mentioned to me in a posting that others had declared you as an apologist for Islam, it is easy to see why. It is not in your content as we all have differing views, rather, it is in your attempts to debase the words of others and dismiss them as merely attempts to lie. If you are not an apologist for Islam, you give a good impression as one.
While I find this subject interesting and of current import, I also believe that it will not exist for much longer (less than ten years). Western Culture and Islamic culture are incompatible and will never mesh. The only impact of Islam on the West has been through the use of violence and in our age that is because they have been able to acquire modern weapons. That acquisition of these modern weapons have only been due to moneys received from the selling of their raw resource, crude oil. However, for a number of reasons that is coming to an end. As that happens the income in these single industry countries will dry up to a trickle and their impact on the West will also dry up. With their inability to grow the foods to feed their own people they will become increasingly dependent on alms from the Western Nations, the very nations they despise.
It is really too bad since there could have been some type of relationship developed with the West, but for that to happen, Islam would have to open up to the world and that will never happen.
I’m done with this thread.
The fundamental problem, Menantol, is that some members appear to believe that they can behave in the same fashion as someone we both know on another forum who imagines that he can post anything he wishes and that only he is correct.
Now we have offered FACTS as opposed to opinions and prejudice; we have gladly discussed opinions; but ultimately we will NOT tolerate bullying or hatred.
Neither should any mature person.
It is sad that you feel unable to continue with a rational discussion but that is your choice.
Just as it is our choice (and as you have seen with your own eyes) we are the least authoritarian forum owners you will find anywhere) to decide that certain posts, behaviour and so on is not acceptable.
I regret your decision and hope you change your mind because you are valued and the strange thing is that on Beth's forum you have a range of issues on which you post so your recent single-issue focus has surprised me considerably.
Perhaps when things have cooled down you may care to resume your activity on here.
Some people tend to come across in an unnecessarily strident and confrontational ways and perhaps if they tried to moderate their tone a little that might help people respond in a less irritable fashion to their somewhat testy postings.
Big Lin, everyone here understands your position relative to Islam, and also understand that you do not like postings negative to Islam. That’s fine as anyone can offer their opinion whether others agree or not. But you do seem to be operating in unnecessarily strident and confrontational ways and that doesn’t support open dialog.
By the way, you don’t have to take this as my opinion, but rather show it to Mike and suggest he remember October 6th 2015 on a different forum. Essentially this (first paragraph here) is what he suggested to a poster.
It's not a question of 'negative' postings; it's a question of one-sided, dishonest, inaccurate and hate-filled postings.
As you said yourself, tone often matters more than content.
And lately the tone has reminded me of a BNP meeting (something like Aryan Nations would be a US equivalent).
So as I said, it's all about self-discipline and wording posts more carefully.
It's also about finding different topics.
Apart from anything else, I got bored stiff seeing the same old rubbish every time I come on here.
Hasn't anyone got anything original to say?
I let your baseless slanderous claim that Charles Lindbergh murdered his own child go unchallenged Big Lin . Charles Lindbergh stood up against the Federal Reserve takeover of the US economy and the dangers that it would bring to the US. This was the reason his child was kidnapped and murdered. Like JFK anyone who challenges these Globalist bankers and their agenda risks harm to themselves and their families.
Most Muslim countries outside of Saudi Arabia were ravaged by this banker sponsored colonialism misusing British, French and later American troops after the 1913 banker takeover of the US. Muslims who I've talked with applaud my condemnation of these bankers. The original Mideastern immigrants to Germany were lmostly rather well behaved and didn't cause the problems that the recent pseudo-refugees cause.

So what is meant by the modern term referred to as 'POLITICAL CORRECTNESS'..
The definition is found in 4 telegrams at the Truman Library and Museum in Independence, Missouri. The following are copies of four telegrams between President Harry Truman and General Douglas MacArthur on the day before the actual signing of the WWII Surrender Agreement in September 1945.. The contents of those four telegrams below are exactly as received at the end of the war - not a word has been added or deleted!
(1) Tokyo, Japan 0800-September 1,1945 To: President Harry S Truman From: General D A MacArthur Tomorrow we meet with those yellow-bellied bastards and sign the Surrender Documents, any last minute instructions?
(2) Washington, D C 1300-September 1, 1945 To: D A MacArthur From: H S Truman Congratulations, job well done, but you must tone down your obvious dislike of the Japanese when discussing the terms of the surrender with the press, because some of your remarks are fundamentally not politically correct!
(3) Tokyo, Japan 1630-September 1, 1945 To: H S Truman From: D A MacArthur and C H Nimitz Wilco Sir, but both Chester Nimitz and I are somewhat confused, exactly what does the term politically correct mean?
(4) Washington, D C 2120-September 1, 1945 To: D A MacArthur/C H Nimitz From: H S Truman Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end!
Now, with special thanks to the Truman Museum and Harry himself, you and I finally have a full understanding of what 'POLITICAL CORRECTNESS' really means.....
