I can't believe the I HAVE A DREAM thread was hidden by the jury.

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by REP (a host of the General Discussion forum).

I don't believe it fell within the forbidden topics. Can someone please explain why it was hidden?

2. This will probably get locked, but you can post the question in the meta forum

I saw that thread and I don't understand why it was locked either.

On edit: Reading the text didn't seem so bad but some of those links do make me realize why it was locked.

seemed like something you might expect in a non-democratic enviroment.

7. If your posts violate the TOS here, they will be removed.

Simple, really. And the same with most other message boards on the internet.

12. If you hadn't read it yet

How could you be shocked it was removed? The links were all through the post. Don't you check sources?

I had been reading the post before the links.

14. That's the title of the embedded YouTube video.

I think it may have been less than supportive of Obama.

I didn't check out any of the links - that video is probably enough to hide the post for most people here.

16. Go check out the poster's blog (linked to in the post).

It's full of posts talking about how Ron Paul needs to be the GOP nominee because he's the only one who can beat Obama, about how Obama is going to put everyone into FEMA camps, etc.

17. I am shocked, SHOCKED that a jury hid that



Really, the only thing less surprising than that OP getting hidden is that it only had 1 rec.

Maybe things have actually started to get better around here. Feels a bit cleaner, lighter, less insane around this forum over the last day or so. Can only hope it lasts longer than 5 minutes though I'm not holding my breath.

10. Obama was/is a secret CIA operative?

Batshit woo-woo nonsense. The poster is a Ron Paul troll.

Check out his blog that he linked to in that post: http://ian56.blogspot.co.uk/

Tampa - what can still be done to get Ron Paul nominated
26. Ron Paul
Non Ron Paul delegates will think that he cannot beat Obama, the polls say the opposite.
He is favourite to beat Obama and will certainly do much better than Romney.

...

311. Polls
We need to do whatever we can to get Romney down in the polls.
It will show up in the Electoral College map.
We should not do any Obama attacks yet.
We need the differential in the polls between Obama and Romney to grow.

...

Obama has set up contingency plans to cater for mass civil unrest. Presumably due to extreme economic hardship Ė like Greece. I donít know how much we can use that either.


We need to FIGHT



My numbers do not take account of this. There is no other evidence to back it up and we will only find out at the convention in Tampa.
KEEP FIGHTING.
I don't care if Ron Paul himself gives up.
I will NOT give up.
But I will be realistic.
We have a massive job ahead of us - are you still in it to win it?


Prognosis for the US 2016

Obama is planning on mass unrest.
NDAA, Martial Law, staffing of Fema camps, ordering 450 million hollow point bullets and 450,000 meals by DHS, NDAA allows US troops to operate on US soil, apparently letters have gone out to 14 State Governor's to stop measures that would stop Obama taking over the National Guard.

but the main body of the post was very credible. Too bad people are so sensitive.
