You should start your own sub that is dedicated to crossposting this kind of crap. This would be useful to the community, by creating a community reported log of these shenanigans.

That's a great idea.

Oberlin College Ohio Dismisses Professor Joy Karega For AntiSemitic Statements - Re her assertion on social media platforms that "ISIS is really an arm of Israeli and US intelligence agencies, Israel was behind the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris and that Zionist Jews were behind the 911 attacks by RexYehudi in MartinTimothy

[–]FormosaOolong 5 insightful - 1 funny5 insightful - 0 funny6 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

There is a massive not-so-subtle campaign to conflate being critical of the policies/actions of the Israeli government with anti-semitism.

This is the same as saying criticism of Theresa May = anti-anglo-saxon.

In this way I wish those with legitimate points about Mossad and Zionist extremists being responsible for 911 etc would use those more accurate terms rather than "jews" did it. Not only does it feed the misnomer campaign, but it instantly alienates anyone of jewish heritage from even contemplating the truth.

Wow, this guy is so clear. I'm so glad that he is addressing the misappropriation of language, as it's so rampant now, along with its cousins regulatory capture, dog-whistling, and whatever you call all those agencies and NGOs that do the opposite of what they are named.

Even in the settings, "insightful" is referred to as an "upvote" and "funny" is referred to as a "downvote". by wizzwizz4 in SaidIt

[–]FormosaOolong 3 insightful - 1 funny3 insightful - 0 funny4 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

That may be a language feature of the software (if that's what it's called) itself. The creators' intent was for there to be no downvotes, and they are not tabulated as downvotes in terms of ranking.

I like saidit a lot, and I think this feature of no downvotes is really cool and contributes to a more community-feeling culture.

Maybe /u/magnora7 can elucidate.

This is horrible and I hope this jackass gets the book thrown at him. But trying to tie this via his few thou$and donations to Shillary is a bit of a stretch, and only adds to the Fake Divide.

Noam Chomsky discusses 9/11 Conspiracy Theorists "...nanothermite, whatever the hell that is." Chomsky fails the test. by useless_aether in 911truth

So agree with all you've said, magnora. Chomsky has made enormous contributions in so many areas and is totally brilliant. We all get stuff wrong, and many with a public life do succumb to pressure. Either way, as you say it's not useful to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

But why "threatening to release"? Just release it. Reeks of fakery when you dangle like that.
