I've created a couple of political threads which have been deleted by the right-wing moronic moderators here. Nothing too bad, no cursing, but critical of the Republican Party.

Meanwhile, on any given day, there are an endless stream of vile, disgusting, racist, threads about how racial minorities are destroying the city, state, country, likening minorities to animals, and totally objectifying a race of people in the most evil, sick, and twisted manner. Those threads are allowed to stay and often dominate the board.

It says a lot about the people running this place. Being a sick, evil racist is good. Being too harshly critical of a political party is unacceptable. I wonder if the Klan owns this company.

can it be that the party of NO and Hell No, don't believe in the first amendment? Unless of course it's for them? They are so in disarray that they have no idea what to do now. So you can be certain that they'll try and do anything.

At a guess your posts are off-topic.

Topix has thriving forums for the discussion of national politics, but this is the "Utica" forum. If there isn't a Utica connection it probably doesn't belong here. Raging at Utica Republicans? Great. Raging at Republicans in general? Take it to one of the subject specific forums where it's relevant.

I would also point out that a huge number of the racial discussions *do* get deleted exactly because they're off topic. As distasteful as it may be, and I think most of us agree that it is, if it's on-topic for the forum they usually let it stay.

To it's credit, Topix will allow objectionable speech if the poster follows the guidelines. Racism sucks, but it isn't illegal. And who knows? If you engage a flaming racist productively you might be able to bring a little enlightenment into his or her life.

Excuse us, but are you saying that were not allowed to talk National politic in the Utica Forum? Funny, those ranting, raging Republican thread don't seem to get deleted.

Topix is a private forum, and the people who run it are free to do as the please. It's a free country. If you don't like it, you are free to go to another website.

But not if you say something that they don't agree with? It's that attitude that has resulted in many of the better posters departing, leaving you with the mental giants that remain posting hatred, racism, and smut.

But that doesn't apply to which firearms I want to own. Does it. Because you don't agree with that. Such a hypocrite.

Have any of our vehement 2nd Amendment defenders noticed, it is the only amendment to the Constitution which includes the word "regulated"?

There are also limits on the 1st Amendment.

Why is it always the same types who create conspiracies in their own minds, and buy into those created by others. You probably love Alex Jones and Glenn Beck.
If past is pro-log, you are projecting......Who then, are YOUR sock puppets?

You can't understand it, and you call me an Idiot? OK. It was a question, not a statement. Sock puppets, are conspiring against you. Pitiful.

This is complete nonsense. There are countless threads unrelated to Utica. The moderators are tool-boxes. Okay with racists running wild, but don't be too mean to Republicans, or else.

You have the wrong owner. I'm not Bodhistatva's sock puppet. Keep trying, it's really not hard who I belong to.

WRONG crotchface.. there you go again trying to sell shit for shitaki: "Why is it always the same types who create conspiracies in their own minds, and buy into those created by others." is not a question assfuck. It's a broken sentence.
Also, THERE YOU GO AGAIN assuming things in order to have something to beller to hide your hate, paranoias and ignorance. You have just made a flaming flatulent ass out of yourself. Gas kills!
You really are just a phony big mouth and a chickenshit asshole to boot. You must be used to lying and talking to people who believe your endless whinnies and mental sclerosis.
Now take a deep breath and reformulate the comment so someone besides a raving lunatic can comprehend it.
Again, I'll wait.
So, when an "excitable Boy" gets called on his nonsense, he resorts to Name calling and Ad Hominem attack.
Warren Zevon would be so proud.

"Regulated" applied to the militia, not the right to own firearms.

And what part of this Militia do you suppose was to be regulated? The Style of their Uniforms? How many straws do you need to grasp at, in order to justify unlimited access to you Phallic Projectile Launchers?
Should there be No Regulations with regards to Firearms?
