Turiya, you could reconsider using that kind of language here.
Likely better said, weres taking once again advantage of peoples of a low socionomacle base in countries likely shadow governed by them.

The One Truth's Forum Rules...:
SECTION B - POSTING
1. SUBVERSIVE TOPICS
- Discussions involving drugs or other intoxicating substances, pornography or nudity, foul language, racial/sexual/national intolerance, hate speech of any kind, or the planning of politically subversive acts will not be tolerated. This is by no means a complete list, and the administration reserves the right to use its own judgement to determine whether any given topic will be allowed for discussion on our forums.
This thread is now closed, and I am hereby giving you your second official warning, turiya. Try it again and you will be banned for life.

The following is a message from the staff of The One Truth for anyone who is not a member of this forum and/or who might be stumbling upon this thread at a later point in time.
The thread was closed by myself because of the fact that it was clearly intended as a US-centric right-wing propaganda thread. As the original poster of this thread, member turiya does not see the material he was posting here as propaganda, nor as right-wing. He actually believes that it would be genuine, and that it is neutral.
The staff of The One Truth does not agree with this vantage. We recognize that either party within a conflicting situation will always regard itself as being the neutral one, and we are also painfully aware of the tendency toward knee-jerks within this so-called alternative community.
Because he believes otherwise, turiya has contacted the staff by way of a private message in order to clarify himself and to request that the thread would be reopened. We have deliberated on this within the mod room as a team, on a dedicated thread with a poll attached to it.
It took some time because not every staff member was available right away, and other staff members needed some time to process all of the information before coming to a conclusion on how to vote in the poll. In addition to that, our deliberation on the matter was also brutally interrupted by the sudden passing of one of our dearest friends and most valued members, Brook, alias Shadowself, now five days ago as I'm writing this.
Either way, the staff's decision is now official as all staff members have in the meantime added their vote to the poll, and our vote was unanimous. All staff members have voted in favor of keeping this thread closed, for the exact same reason as why it was closed in the first place, i.e. it is US-centric right-wing propaganda, and some of the articles reproduced here contain hidden or not-so-hidden hate speech.
The One Truth is not a US American forum. It is an international forum, and in fact, we have only one US American citizen on the staff. It is not our policy to censor our members, nor is it our policy to forbid US-centric topics. We do however observe that too much of the attention of late has been going toward US-centric politics, and that this topic seems to surreptitiously spill over onto threads that initially had nothing to do with that subject.
Alas, we can lead the horse to the water, but we cannot make it drink. If people choose to believe in what has already proven itself to be somebody's idea of a prank that later on became an addictive cult — addictive even to the very perpetrators themselves — then there is unfortunately not a lot we can do about that.
Everyone is free to think and believe whatever they choose to think and believe. We will however not allow anyone to coopt The One Truth for political purposes and convert it into the umpteenth US-centric bulletin board for right-wing propaganda. Those who seek to publish that sort of material must find themselves an alternative venue for doing so. Plenty such venues exist already, so it shouldn't be too hard to find one.
