    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.

    Good morning, Sunshine!

    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.

    There's this nagging in the pit of my stomach I'm afraid might affect my health...

    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.

    The timing on this prompt is that yesterday within minutes of one another, two brand new accounts posted something that was overtly advocating for violence.

    Clear honey potting and we dealt with it.

    People should not let this dissuade them from posting and participating otherwise.

    The mods did a great job of taking care of this.

    This is what makes this site the best.

    Thank you all for the work you do.

    Thank you for the hard work moderating in these troubled times. I expect that there will be a FLOOD of false flag phishing to create their enemies list, like the Lincoln project is engaged in.

    Woah. I guess we should have seen this coming. Every time I have an ounce of faith in humanity, they find a way to try to make us willingly put our necks under their boots.

    Norton,

    Thank you for putting out those digital fires that they are setting in the digital Reichstag.
