There's a big difference between antisemitism and exposing the zionist/freemason conspiracies. Let's not take ATS into the realm of Mcarthyism and
With Hunts. If someone posts something that is in violation of the ATS TOS, then by all means, let them have it, but there are fine lines between
racism and a perception of racism via ethnocentricity. Take my thread on the Kosher Scam for example, several freemasons attempted to hijack the
thread and turn it into a racist issue, when it wasn't, but their sole intentions were to get the thread closed. I guess what I am saying is that we
need to make sure we aren't limiting the scope of discussion on ATS for the benefit of a few. Another example, if I say that jewish interests control
the American Media, the Federal Reserve System, etc. it isn't because I'm racist, it's because I have researched the matter and can provide
evidence to proove that claim, however, a jewish member would of course claim that is a racist statement and try to attribute such a post to racism to
keep it from being discussed. Racism is often subjective, and the very term racist can be used to silence the discussion of oppostion.
If a group of neonazi's want to come on to ATS, let them, as long as they don't violate any TOS, I don't see the problem really. If they post
something offensive, ban them and be done with it, otherwise I have found the ATS community to be very efficient at calling someone's bluff or BS.
Bring 'em on, we'll debunk them and send them packing like we do most idiots. But let's not turn ATS into a witch hunt over it.
