Good morning all, long time lurker but infrequent poster here. Just wanted to share my opinions on alot of the far-right, "extremist" propaganda
circulating out there. More of it now than I've ever seen before.
First off I want to commend ATS and its members for, by far and large, dispersing the TRUTH. This board is one I visit daily for top news in the
fields that interest me. The vast majority of the time, the topics and threads posted here are accurate with verifiable sources and
thought-provoking. Very seldom do I run across posts like "hey I got this email forwarded to me today is this true?" Such threads are immediately
debunked and removed. Kudos to all of you.
I would presume the vast majority of members here are conservatives or "right-wing extremists" as the media loves to call us. The MSM loves to
portray us as conspiracy theorist wack-jobs and domestic terrorists. The amount of propaganda circulating through the 'net right now is the most
extreme and highest volume I've ever seen. The majority of it is the same that fuels almost all falsehoods -- a tiny shred of truth, twisted by
those who want to believe it means something else.
This leads me to my point. I receive alot of emails each day forwarded from friends & relatives with similar interests, with stories about everything
from bogus POTUS birth certificate claims to doctored 9/11 photos. It's difficult to separate truth from fiction sometimes, especially right now
since there's so much of both. The ratio of TRUE claims to FALSE ones hasn't changed, it's just that both have increased so dramatically in the
last year, it's overwhelming. Folks are dragging up extremist crap from years, even decades ago and distributing it like it's today's news.
As conservatives, patriots, lovers of our country and Constitution, we must strive to distribute the TRUTH in everything we communicate. Because we
do not fall in line with the sheep we must hold ourselves to a higher standard. All I ask of you is to share the TRUTH with everyone you know. If you
have a friend or relative that forwards you this crap all the time, debunk it, reply back to them, or reply to all, and kindly let them know the stuff
they're propagating is false. Provide sources proving its false. The media will continue to refer to us as "extremists" as long as we're
distributing EXTREMELY false information.
In my inbox today, just as an example (excerpts):
JUDGEMENT DAY IS COMING -- PRAY IT GOES THROUGH
Federal Judge Carter sets Trial Date for Obama's Eligibility!
The expedited trial has been set for Jan. 26, 2010!
Many concerned veterans and citizens attended the hearing in Federal Court in Santa Ana in the lawsuit against Barack Obama to determine his
eligibility to be President and Commander in Chief. About 150 people showed up, almost all in support of the lawsuit to demand that Obama release his
birth certificate and other records that he has hidden from the American people.
Judge David Carter refused to hear Obama's request for dismissal........
I think we can all agree the "birther" movement is pretty much dead. Judge Carter actually DID DISMISIS this lawsuit, it will not proceed . . .
I only go to Harwin Drive to buy rhinestones when I don't have time to order in from my wholesale source. Today I went to the Harwin Central Mall to
pick up some crystals.
The very first store that you come to when you walk from the lobby of the building into the shopping area has this sign posted on their door.
I couldn't stay in the building it made me so sick.
Imam Ali is one of the hijackers from the September 11 terrorist attacks
I didn't buy this one either -- no way in Texas of all states a Muslim shopowner would be willing to put up such a sign.
Imam Ali is a Muslim prophet who died on the 21st day of Ramadan over 1300 years ago, which happened to fall on September 11 this year.
