The purpose of this thread is simple to give voice to any and all who would be silenced for not conforming to antaeus' thread, apparently designed only to promote anger over 9/11 and silence any opposing voices to that anger.
Aside from CoH feel free to post whatever you wish, be it rightwing racist nonsense or far leftwing conspiracy sillyness or anything in between. This thread is designed for the free expression of all opinions
As antaeus posted in his article, neither he nor newsvine nor ANY other private entity MUST provide an open forum for EVERYONE or ANYONE to express their opinions. BUT, it is a FUNDAMENTAL concept of American Democracy that ALL should be allowed to voice their opinions and ideas, no matter how crazy. It was one of the fundamental reasons for establishing this experiment in representative democracy and is the FIRST right enshrined in the Bill of Rights, even ahead of the gun totin' right. So I give voice to all who would be silenced by those like antaeus, who apparently wish only to hear the echos of their own thoughts and not be troubled by disturbing ideas from outside their heads.
Besides, it was people like the last president and people like antaeus who told us that those responsiblefor 9/11 hate us precisely BECAUSE of our rights, rights they seem to think need only be observed selectively, when it's convient.
