  •  you made the analogy of throwing someone (3+ / 0-)

    out of your "house". That's what I was referring to.

    It is flatout insulting to compare 911 conspiracy theories to skepticism about the election. Why? Because no legitimate, reputable sources have advanced the "theory" that 9/11 was anything but a terrorist attack.

    This is not the case with the election issue. Sorry, but I still do have some faith in the editorial standards of such publications as the NYT (Bob Herbert), Rolling Stone (RFK, Jr.), and, not least of all, John Conyers and the House Judiciary Committee.

    These sources have seen fit to at least question the results and allow for the possibility that something untoward was amiss here. And anyone who dismisses those sources, then puts the suspicions expressed there on a par with 911 CT theory is again drawing false equivalencies.

    Nor is it my understanding that Kos has banned "opinions" or "suspicions"--the most recent meltdown came in the wake of "Anonymous'" claims to have prevented vote fraud electronically. That is a horse of an entirely different color.

    Sorry, but I stand with RFK, Jr., Bob Herbert, and John Conyers in remaining skeptical about the results of the 2004 election. If that is a bannable offense on this site, so fucking be it.

      skeptical as you like. Again, I'm not going to engage on this issue. I made the point that this is kos' place, so his rules apply. He has made his rule quite clear, and he has said that he considers talk of the 2004 election being stolen a CT. It's quite simple. You don't have to agree, but you also can't be shocked when you continue to engage in that discussion and end up banned.

      P.S. I am not a crackpot.

        It is kos's place.
        Thank goodness!

      •  I'm not talking about Kos, I'm talking (0+ / 0-)

        about your false equivalencies, your dismissal of highly regarded Democrats (Kennedy, Conyers), and news sources (NYT, Rolling Stone), and not least of all me--putting us all on a par with the crackpot 9/11 Troof folks.

        You say you're not a crackpot? Well, neither am I--neither is Conyers, nor Kennedy nor Herbert.

        To me, it's not even about the 2004 election: kinda water over the dam, innit?


        Asking myself, "Are you now or have you ever agreed with an opinion expressed by Bob Herbert in the NYT, RFK Jr. in the Rolling Stone, or John Conyers in his capacity as a member of the House Judiciary Committee?"

        •  I'm not dismissing them (1+ / 0-)

          I told you I'm not going to engage you on that topic and I'm not. My comment was about kos' rule/warning, and you keep trying to change it back to the 2004 election. That's fine if YOU want to talk about it, but I told you that I did not.

          P.S. I am not a crackpot.
