Slandering OWS is fine. Pro-OWS is not?

I've read a few threads which are critical of OWS.

Which, can be seen here:

www.abovetopsecret.com...
www.abovetopsecret.com...
www.abovetopsecret.com...

I also recently read someone else's thread, who was "for" or pro-OWS.

I flagged it, in fact, there was around 100 flags if I recall properly, along with plenty of stars for the OP.

And this thread disappears? Yet, anything slandering OWS is appropriate.

I suppose if my previous thread which I poured a fair amount of time into, is "recruiting" by telling people to become active in spreading philosophy, then my very first post and introduction on this forum is also "recruiting" by asking virtually the same thing.

My first post can be viewed here, which would theoretically constitute "recruitment" by asking others to become more spiritually engaged and philosophical:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Why is that thread still available, but yet anything pro-activism be it politically or generally is not? I may be going out on a limb, but I would say that is "unfair and unbalanced", and straight out biased to not allow pro-OWS posts.

I'd also like to go out even further on my thin little limb I'm hanging onto and say that by ATS not allowing pro-OWS posts that it would seem there is a agenda at play.

Best regards.

(edit to add)

For those unaware of my reason of ranting, I originally posted a thread that was pro-OWS/pro-activism and a moderator thought it was a nice idea to go ahead and immediately throw my thread into the "Trash bin" under the terms that it was trying to "recruit" people.

Mate

Not sure your right about this one. This Thread is on the Front Page.

Cheers

P.S. You forget top mention This Thread for those who don't agree.

Interesting I missed that. Well, the rant may be unwarranted but regardless one of my threads was removed because I was "recruiting" people by asking them to become active.

I'd say that's rant-worthy, eh?

If it was for a football team or something you might get away with that, encouraging people to get arrested, hhhmmmmm I'm not so sure.

How does expressing your ideas constitute getting arrested? Did I miss that meeting?

I gave you a flag purely because I have noticed with a disgust the way all the conspiracy forums and talk hosts like AJ are slamming this movement . I mean really what is this . I've already been banned from the glp site for requesting the spy ring leader to show his real links as to why hes so against the movement as a George soros or whoever , movement .

Honestly if you look hard enough you will realise why all the sites are gainst this movement of people .

Expressing ideas is fine, it's the manner in which people express them that is causing problems.

This entire ideology of ATS has once again made my heart turn away from the old. I place undue blame on them yet again. I see the posters slandering this movement, and I realize the reason for it. The sugar coated, entitled, video game playing, American public schooled, McDonalds eating, starbucks sipping, interracial marriage accepting, homosexual embracing, anti war believing, independent minded, children of tomorrow are the ones starting this thing from the grass roots and the older generation is not. I fear to post this next sentence, but if I take flack, so be it. They are jealous. The old and worn out are jealous. They took the system lying down, without so much as a peep. Their children (or grandchildren), who have reaped the benefit of their labour under the oppressive machines are the ones to fight back. How angry it must make old age feel. How dare the youth trample over their hard work?!How dare they invalidate the machine that the elders worked so hard to maintain and oil! How dare they demand for an alternative future when so many crumbs are available to them! How dare they make me question my game of monopoly...how dare they make me realize that...that...that it all goes back in the box:



How dare youth look to tomorrow and craft a future of their own.

I dare because this is my desire. A boy has a right to dream...you filled our heads with these stories of doing, living, and being anything that we desire. This is your fault, our fighting back, this is your doing. Humans don't simply become numb to these things because of cartoons, sugar, and video games. The stories you told us by our bedside before delivering us to the darkness stayed with us as a beacon of light. The warm touch of your loving embrace sewed within our hearts these beliefs of justice, peace, and love. It was you, through your loving care, and back breaking work that created this entitled revolution of the masses. We watched as you toiled, and wondered "Why aren't we rich". We watched as economic downturns took away your hard work. We watched, balling our fists as our invincible parents were subject to a machine that stood over us all. You inspired us, old age, you inspired the passion found within our hearts.

I say to you all, be not jealous, be not envious, be not with contempt, hate, or scorn. Support us. Dare to believe one last time. Dare to be young again and believe in a future in which all men, and all women, of all nations can be free. If he maketh us to lie down in green pastures, why not return to his plans. If we experienced the fall, why do we not simply wipe off the mud. Let us do this together, for the mocking ridicule from those who inspired us stings a lot more than you can imagine. We don't need you, because we can do this without you. However, we want you. We want to tell our children that this fight had no age barriers, cultural barriers, or language barriers. We want future generations to know that at this moment, at this time, we stood together, and dropped all pretenses. All it takes is the ability to believe, and believing in something doesn't cost a damn thing...you taught us this old age. Now please, drop the old adage of "Do as I say, not as I do." and dare to to follow your words, dare to follow your fanciful tales....dare to be young again.

Peace shall occupy this world. Justice shall occupy our minds. Love shall occupy our souls.

This is was always coming. Now, we just have to accept the fact that it's here. Let's occupy this planet together.

clap , clap , clap !!! . gee you are a great writer . That was a brilliant speech and very very true . Are you a young person or middle aged . i wish that the old people would listen and here the truths of this fear they are feeling . All of them . Those like the people behind these forums I suspect have a dark ulterior motive .

I have seen footage of old people out on the streets in NY anyway . But they are working class old . the ones that are suffering now . Thse pampered 30s something have no idea what awaits them yet . they just think if they serve there masters they will be rewarded .

Wow. So brilliantly and eloquently written. You certainly have a way with words friend.


It's a shame it will probably be buried in this thread.

Hahaha, oh that's just wonderful


But back to the topic at hand:

Seriously, join us. Even if it's just in the form of positive posts on ATS or elsewhere on the internet, every little shred of support counts.

this is what i've been trying to articulate
to the people i meet in the streets
for years now

we were bought up believing in love and hope and equality
why are we being laughed at for demanding it?
nothing is going to stop this now.
