Response to Bjorn Against (Reply #120)

124. I thought you were leaving DU.

 

Wasn't that you that wrote a CBCDU thread earlier in GD? I do see you edited it though.

A line has been crossed, I have always said I will not associate with groups that advocate violence
I have long been a peace activist for several years now and I have always promised myself that I would live by my principles and if I ever got involved with a group and that group started advocating violence I would immediately disassociate myself from it.

I have been in many disagreements with people on this site before, but I can handle disagreement. I refuse however to tolerate threads which promote taking up arms against the government if they pass gun control legislation.

Tonight there is a thread in the gungeon in which a few different DU members are promoting an armed insurrection, I did not think this type of thing would be tolerated on DU but I was wrong. I alerted on three different posts which explicitly promoted acts of terrorism and all three of them were allowed to stand.

I know this is a Meta thread so it will probably be locked, but I need to do two things before I step away from DU. I needed to speak out and condemn those who allowed the violent rhetoric in the gungeon to stand, and I needed to say good bye to all the wonderful people who have made DU such a great discussion board.

I know that the gungeon people are promoting armed revolution are in the minority at DU, most of the people here have been great. Some of you I have cheered on and others I have disagreed with. Both under my current name and my former alias of MN Against Bush I have participated in many great discussions here and I wanted to thank everyone who participated in those discussions without promoting violence.

Maybe I will action taken to stop the violent rhetoric on DU and I will be able to return, but until DU takes a stand against violent rhetoric I can no longer participate in this site.

I wish those of you who have consistently stood for peace the best, I will miss all of you.
