"Moderation" at antiwar dot com

Probably wasn't Jason.  He writes, but to my knowledge doesn't "moderate".  Did you use the term "the Jews"?  That collective noun will get you in trouble.

Personally, I don't agree with the prohibition of so-called "hate speech".  I think that so-called
 "hate speech" should be among the most protected.  Nothing needs sunshine -- and thus "protection" -- more than this most disapproved of speech.  But unfortunately (in my view) the PC thought police culture, the SJW culture, has achieved a level of domination that expressions of animus are only allowed against "approved" groups: Commies, Russians, Trump supporters, Muslims, (fill in your favorite "other").

And of course, because I used the term "the J*ws" above, the automatic flag is activated and badda bing: "Hold on, this is waiting to be approved by News from Antiwar.com."

Let's see if it gets through.

As always, these days, when I post something that just might get "moderated" (ie censored) I post it separately on my blog, "whimsical dog" (no caps).  So if you see "post deleted", you can go there to see if it was me.
