Tone and language of posts

Everyone, if you've been paying attention even 50% as much as you should be over the last week, you know that the Digital Night of the Long Knives was clearly in place for a while and waiting for a go signal, and January 6 was it.

The leftist politicians and their think tanks are in bed with the technocrats and the banks to shut down any opposition speech, no matter how benign.

You're angry, you're anxious, confused, you're scared. We all are.

That being said, we know that they are scouring the interwebz with hunter/killer squads looking for "nests of radicals" to marginalize and round up.

We also know that there are provocateurs who are being sent out to those nests to incite violent rhetoric.

New members Welcome! We are glad that you are here. A couple of you have posted things that we were forced to immediately take down. Understand that in the environment that we are in, the optics on your actions will instantly cast you as a crisis actor/provocateur. There will be little latitude in your account staying active if this becomes a habit.

Everyone, without going on your own witch hunts, please first keep your own tone and language to be absent of any rhetoric that could be used against us.

Second, if you see something that is clearly problematic hit the report button. When you quote something and challenge it, you've created two posts that we have to deal with.

I hope that everyone understands the very difficult position the entire site staff is in right now in finding balance between not submitting to the hysterical and systematic persecution of opposition thought that is occurring in this country , while likewise recognizing that the threat is genuine.

Not everyone is going to agree with how we do things, but I'll live with that if it realizes the goal of protecting this community as the precious resource that it is right now.

Considering that there is a concerted false flag operation underway apparently directly targeting legal firearms owners, the increased moderation is well warranted.

I will be the first one to admit that i have a million things going on in my life , and this place is a bit of an escape . Between business & family that is enough add the political thing and it is off the chain . I know i will try to post less and read more .
I know i let that new guy have it that called "most of us Racist" ...just hit me wrong and i was a bit rough on him .

I am just flying under the radar. It's a good bunch of people here and it would really suck to lose it.

I must have missed the "racist" festival, whoever this new person is.

During last year's Lobby Day/protest at the Virginia capital, I was pleased to see many law abiding people of color at the event, carrying and speaking in the newscasts that I watched.

I really do feel that we stand a better chance of repelling government overreach if we demonstrate that we believe the 2nd Amendment is for everyone, not just crotchety old white men.
