Racist by pushing back on a racist forum? Piece of shit by saying, pieces of shit shouldn't be using a good Jeep forum for spewing hate? Sorry to tell you this, not all progressive thinkers need their moms. Some have Jeeps, some have kids who don't fit your norm. Some have family members who aren't white. Some want the world to be better, not whiter. Bitch.
I genuinely feel that you are attempting to connect dots that simply aren't there. The members here that are speaking their minds ( just as you are being allowed to do) may be fairly conservative but that's just about where my assumptions stop. I don't honestly believe for a minute that any one of these folks would exercise any distinguishable racist actions in their day to day life and they surely aren't promoting racism here. They come to this board to help others in the Jeep community... as the Chat section is but a small part of this forum. While in Chat, anyone may vent, comment, offer opinions, etc... about whatever topic they wish. The censorship in this section is certainly not on par with the rest of this forum's content. If a very small number of members feel that our President is a looser, or of a particular ethnicity or religion, etc, etc... then so be it. My concern is not try to convince them otherwise nor to obliterate their posts... only to see that things like this stay in the Chat section... that's all.
So... in the Chat section, you may find the joking and discussions and comments to be a bit rough around the edges, somewhat passionate, and even at times cringe-worthy, adolescent, or even in poor taste... But that is the Freedom that these people are allowed. There isn't a single forum out there where every single member maintains the exact same thoughts, ideals, logic, etc... except for maybe one and that forum is actually more of a cult imo. This forum is no different from most and it is not this particular forums intent nor responsibility to censor whatever doesn't suit an agenda. As for this particular forum, if someone posts that they believe someone to be a Muslum, or a Catholic, or a communist, or a racist, or a candle-stick maker, or a bunny rabbit... then that's just how it is. It's their privilege to comment about that and I as a moderator will not insist that they only post in a sterilized manner or that they refrain entirely. That's not what a discussion-based forum is about.
That being said, I may disagree with some of what is said on here and there are times that I do feel as if comments are a bit unnecessary, biased, or over the top. But we are all human beings with complexities of emotion and opinion about many eclectic topics. I'm not here to make sure that everyone's pillows are fluffed and that everyone has a comfy little safe space. We're adults and we should be able to discuss, and disagree, and argue, and let it go at the end of the day. Sometimes we don't use as good of judgement as we maybe/ probably should... certainly myself included, but again... we are humans and we are prone to error and taking things a bit too far at times. It happens.
You are here to troll and nothing else... not to offer solutions... only to offer insults and name-calling. Unlike these guys that you so loathsomely seek to engage in your trolling efforts, they signed up on here to help others and to offer ideas with Jeep related topics. They don't give a damn on this forum as in real life, if you are Chinese, or Black, or conservative, or Jewish, or liberal, or female, or microwavable. They simply want to help you get your vehicle onto the trail so that you can have fun and to get you off the trail and home in one piece. I sure as Hell cannot and will not defend everything that is posted on this board... especially in the Chat section, but censoring and editing anything that I don't necessarily agree with, should obviously not be my responsibility. Also... please be aware that creating an account on this forum with the sole intent to troll others is generally not tolerated but I will allow you to continue speaking your mind on this subject as I realize that the topic of racism is of a sensitive and heartfelt matter.
I will wrap up my reply here with one notation that typically doesn't ever need to be addressed but NOW it does because of the accusations that you have made against this forum... I absolutely will NOT tolerate in any capacity or context the "N" word. I have banned people for using that hateful, degrading, inciting, and deliberately inflammatory word and I'll do it again if it ever comes up.
I genuinely wish that we could settle down here in this thread. Sometimes it's as if people WANT to be threatened just so that they can be angry. Anyway... This thread may or may not be shut down... I haven't made that decision yet but I will say that the name-calling and juvenile tone of this thread is a bit unsettling and very much tiresome.
