I've recently been "booted" from posting comments on The Huffington Post.

I am a thoughtful and well spoken conservative poster; but, I have recently been "swept out" of the AOL/Huffington Post comment stream. I had been posting comments on AOL/The Huffington Post for the past few years. But, a few months ago I began to notice that my comments were being flagged by their moderators, and summarily removed, or held onto and released so far down the "comment stream" that no one would ever have a chance of viewing the comments.

Recently, I was asked for my Facebook link, so that my name would be posted on all of my comments. Now, my last name is quite unique, and I would not take someone very long to figure out exactly which "John Doe" I actually was. I will confess that the Obama adminstration and the abuses of the NSA did, factor into my decision to, decline to attach my Facebook account to HuffPost.

I was never an "ugly" commentor; but, I would not back down from my viewpoints, either. Anytime anyone would ever "take me to task" for my political beliefs, I would always give a very good account of myself, and humble them in the "arena of ideas." But, most importantly, I was providing a conservative viewpoint to a general audience that may never have been exposed to conservatism, before. I had been "friended" and "followed" by many many people.

Now, to be honest, sometimes I would, "throw a firecracker into a bee hive" (enrage to engage) just to see what would come flying out at me; but, that is all part of the "political discourse" that our nation was founded upon.

I will review some of the comments on HuffPost, just to see what kind of commentors are left, now. Everything that I see indicates that the other conservatives must have been "booted" also. What is left are a bunch of like-minded liberal/socialists, who are in total agreement about all of the news stories on HuffPost.

Just curious if anyone else in this forum has had the same experience with Huffington?

HOLY COW!!! I thought I was posting this on a "Chat Room." My most sincere apologies. Sometimes the little hamster falls asleep inside the wheel!

Your are probably right.  The HuffPost regular posters had a hissy fit when AOL subscribers started posting there. And, their moderators are seriously NUTS!  I'm still there and and I don't post often!  It is a badge of honor to get booted from there!  Congrats!

Congratz!

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
