Why are liberals the most childishly cherished political entity only here ? Kind of like a cheap soap opera -------Ummm like the Oprah show ?
Geez, where did you disappear to? I have not seen you since that pasting Roy Moore got in the Alabama Special Election Senate Race earlier this year.
I don't mind taking my liberalism to other forums and sharing good progressism with those desperately in need.
To be a liberal is to be an emotional child.
Speaking of telling the truth, there is literally nothing outside of this meme to suggest Roosevelt ever actually said this.
Yep. Say something like, 'there are only two genders.,' which is true, and watch heads explode.
I recall one user who ended up quitting Hubpages after being banned for an innocuous offense and he seemed to be pretty far left (or at least, more to the left than I am).
The moderators may be left-leaning but I haven't experienced the sort of censorship you allude to. Honestly, in light of your recent post I'd be more worried about Twitter, YouTube etc.
Twitter , so far, has been tolerant of a lot of offensive language that I see every day.
Who knows , there needs to be fairly open and unlimited discussions or we cure do party divisions . Fake media no matter the name is just plain bad for business .
I agree! Fox News needs to be banned from the airwaves and internet.
Seeings your CNN is dying a slow death , Msnbc is closing it's doors as you speak .Fox really isn't doing to badly so good luck with that !
Good ole' liberal banning huh ? Sounds like the nazi's are coming .
Offensive language is one thing, but thought policing is another. Every now and then I hear about someone being banned from Twitter for straying too far from accepted speech. The most recent case is comedian Owen Benjamin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0Qbq1eBy34
I don’t really think so. You might fit in better on reddit or something though.
Aime . if only you could silence all conservatives! What a perfect world ...............Not!
Now flag me again for what...... hate speech ?
I’m not interested in silencing conservatives nor do I care to flag you. I’m not sure how you got that from my post. Man, I must be speaking in tongues today...
I was genuinely trying to be helpful. Your style is more in line with a place like reddit than here.
A horseback, the fact that you post here makes it clear political incorrectness is alive and well on Hub Pages.
I don't think so , just coming off about a 120 day ban here I can say that these forums are shadowed by liberal moderators who bend to liberal cause . There are far more liberals here allowed a wider spread of so "offending "others ,than conservatives. One more outlet of liberal propaganda that when debates are divisive they then block conservative opinions. I am here merely for a time at the mercy of someone who will be "offended" by conservative opines. Hubpages, like Face-Book , like Twitter and all liberal media shadow bans , " Free speech" is only free as long as the overall liberal agenda isn't threatened by opposing view .
And I do not care who this offends.
I've read your posts. I'm not certain bans are unwarranted. Civility in communications is not an issue of politically correctness. It's common courtesy.
My opines are just a different shade from ultra leftism that are so prevalent today . And because such leftism dominates the forums , it wins out . My sense of civility is no different than anyone here , it's just the new tactic of the left to silence opposing views .
I would certainly agree that different tactics can each be less than civil and I have seen posts from those with leftist views, which seem ban worthy, passing the inexplicable hub pages litmus test for banning. But, I still stand by my assessment. You can be over the top, at times, and at those moments I wouldn't fault the moderators a ban.
So, yes. They do appear to give left opinions more leeway. However, if you break the rules you don't really have a right to complain on the outcome.
A120 day ban indicates more than one ban. Ever hear the definition of insanity?
I refuse to have my independent opinions silenced , if they are not welcome here it bothers me not , There are plenty of places where they're welcome . I have seen venomous hatred from the left or alt left go unchallenged here many times , downright hatred in fact and yes , they do give leftist opines far more leeway.
Insanity ? ....Politically ,That would be letting people silence you because they disagree , you may not see me here but I will not ever be silenced.
I think I may be misting up a bit reading this Spanky-like post.
I wake each day thanking God for that " silent moral majority" ..........;-}
Who are they? The majority is speaking out against Spanky these days.
Randy , No .....The difference is that the right isn't being heard from as much as the radical left and that's all . The left in America owns the news media , so they then own the message ....AND they own your kids once independent minds in and throughout the entire education system , so we'll see how THAT works before the end of this .
No Horse, it's because people like you fall for Fox News to the extent you need them to tell you what to think. It surprises me otherwise intelligent folks listen to the lamebrain likes of Hannity and Limbaugh in their support for Spanky. It'll be okay when Spanky finally gets the boot and everything gets back to normal. I crave a day without some sort of scandal happening in or around Spanky's group of nitwits in the WH.
Geez, Ahorseback, you have got to be more careful, the place is far too quiet without you here.
Yes, I am at war with Right, so I can take it. Although, I take no prisoners, I abide with the terms of Geneva Convention. So, give it your best shot.
They most definitely are liberal moderators.
Liberals have lots of faith in human nature.
Conservatives don't have that much faith in human nature.
And guess what ... humans have many wonderful attributes as well as many faults.
Aw, so you were banned and, just like your prez, you blame everyone but yourself.
So, how do you explain it when liberal posters get banned?
If the balance is off then only one party gets banned , thereby "shadow banning" the message from the right Like Face Book admits , like Twitter admits , Pretty simple .
That you just - finally - got banned here is a testament to the tolerance of this site. You and your cronies have done more to force intelligent writers off HubPages than any other one thing I can mention.
And now that you are back, what do you do? Start an inflammatory discussion.
HubPages says there are 41,000 writers here. Six years ago there were more than 200,000. You have to wonder what happened?
Really Kathryn , That should tell you something in itself , because the left's venomous hatred of all things towards the conservative side of debates is more than obvious including many who are never banned. The fact that there are less writers here than before says much about hubpages . I like the forums wherever and yet when shadow banning happens it only hurts the site itself , whoever that site is , look at the precious Face book dying a rather fast death as we speak . But ,why don't you explain how I or others drive writers away from here and not the policies of Hubpages themselves?
I don't wonder , creative writing doesn't sell . Period . At one time it was a creative writers site . Most have left and since then its all about money , net hits and a lot of P.C..

This entire thing is silly, you get banned for a lack of manners and decorum in these forums. It has nothing to do with one's ideological positions one way or another.
Conservatives practically invented the word and concept 'excuses', whenever they don't win. It does not matter whether Hub-pages HQ is in San Francisco or Dallas.
There are fewer writers (not less) because the level of discussion has declined greatly and is too often ignorant and petty. Not to mention, hardly anyone bothers to write actual articles any more.
They said, "No, its NOT about being politically correct here on HP topical forums." I would agree.
Think about it: without you and jacklee Im, they'll be going, "Yea, that's right, man … " I whole heartedly concur!"... "Where's the like button?"..."So cool of you to say!"... "Right on!"... "Groovy!"… "Far out!"
Kathryn, The alt-liberals will hi-jack the political conversations and attempt to control the numbers of us by hate-banning because they have to gain votes, as they have to allow illegals drivers licences to vote, they did it with the woman's vote , the African American vote , the young academic vote , the organised labor vote . I fail to see how anyone cannot see that liberals play the identity politics game for votes.
Let's gain the "groups " and ignore the individual . They are admittedly Orwellian . By the way have you been to Twitter ?
They will never silence us .
You never answered this question when I asked befote. If admins are liberals who ban people based on political ideology, how do you explain my multiple bans? Or Randy's 120-day ban?
Where is the evidence of your victimization?
Face book , Twitter , Instagram have either admitted to banning or shadow banning unpopular and conservative postings . Anyone can easily explain some people's overzealous anger issues and derogatory language and hate speech banning . Why do you need me to ?
Again, if there is a bias against conservatives, why would they ban liberals?
They wouldn't and don't in equal numbers , That's the entire point P.P. !
And how do you know this? Do you have evidence?
At this point most sights are admitting it !
So you have no evidence, just your unwillingness to take responsibility for your own behavior.

Hoopla. Most of the people these days are trying so hard to be politically correct and refused to call a person who entered the United States illegally an "Illegal Alien" for fear of being branded as "racist". For me, if you're illegal, you are illegal. No sugar coating, no...
