Several people, have put up lists identifying the "Trolls"on this forum that are dividing us as a group, and wouldn't you know it, the trolls are posting their own list of names including some core members of this forum as "Trolls". Its pure and utter chaos. This needs to stop. When you weed through the diversionary messages, and the nonsensical posts, there really is a common belief system underlying this movement, and it needs room to breathe and be heard.
I propose that, instead of trying to identify the trolls, lets focus on the issues. Anyone who presents viewpoints in opposition to or outside of the basic value of this group, which is economic inequality, needs to be silenced. Yes, I said Silenced, as in censored, muted, cut out, banned, removed from the forum, excommunicated, stepped on, and otherwise made inert.
I can see the trolls already piling onto this thread, calling me some kind of Nazi who is against free speech, but free speech is a very dangerous weapon, and right now it is being used against us. You think the Tea Party lets just anyone hang out in their rallies asking for Obama to be lynched, even though that is probably exactly what they want? Of course not. They heavily censor their participants, as any political movement that expects to have cohesion and progress does.
Let me spell it out for you. Free speech is the enemy of this movement. I could not care less if you feel deep in your heart that free enterprise creates social mobility, or that flat tax is a fair tax, or that one world government is bad for America. It doesn't matter to me if you think the Jews are the 1% and the source of our problems, or that Ron Paul is the next best thing since sliced bread, or even that Obama has failed us.
KEEP THOSE OPINIONS TO YOURSELF OR GET OUT!!!!!
Your presence is welcome, but your opinions are not. Unless this movement sharpens its message and solidifies behind it, we are doomed to failure.
