I don’t read most of the comments here, but I have been alerted to the fact that once again many of the threads here are being used as platforms by people with various agendas that have little or nothing to do with the common defense we need to be presenting against the global jihad.
So I refer you once again to this piece by Jihad Watch Board Vice President Hugh Fitzgerald, explaining what this site, and open comments, are for. Please read it, and refrain from Christian evangelism, gay rights activism, creation vs. evolution debates, romantic entanglements, and other causes which, however worthy, detract from the purpose of this site.
I will not close comments. I still believe the antidote to bad speech is more speech. I still believe that out of open discussion good can come, and it has, here, in the comments field, on many occasions. And I vehemently reject the charges by hate groups and hateful individuals that I am somehow responsible for one class of comments here but not for those entered by people with opposing views. I am not responsible for any of the comments here except those that I myself make, and it is extremely telling that those groups cannot find anything in my own writings to buttress their claims.
As I have explained many times here, comments are unmoderated. If you would like to donate to us a sum substantial enough to enable us to hire a fulltime moderator, it will be gratefully received. But until then, the policing can and will only be sporadic. Nevertheless, it is not nonexistent. Comments referring to “Muzzies,” advocating genocide, or making broad-brush characterizations about Muslims or anyone else will be deleted if seen (and if you care about our work in defense of human rights here, please bring them to my attention in an email and I will delete them). Comments that are breathtakingly off-topic, racist, made up of endless pasted-in articles from other sources, semi-literate or illiterate, or abusive or threatening are likewise unwelcome.
If you are interested in defending the West and the ideas of the equality of rights and dignity of all, do not play into the hands of our enemies by giving them ammunition with which they can try to discredit us.
And again, if anything — anything — tops your personal agenda other than defending Western civilization from those who would destroy it, and you want to make defending Western civilization subordinate to agreement with you on the other points of your agenda, please take your comments elsewhere. And thank you.
