Is it your contention then, that when you start and feed a 150-reply thread through six or eight threadjacks, some of which are yours, and the moderator of a "serious discussion" subforum is faced with the resulting pile of dreck, and said mod splits "your" precious thread and moves everything from your first threadjack onward into a flame subforum where it rightfully belongs, that there is "meatshielding" going on?
All of that is premised on who is the judge of "dreck", and what the point of splitting the thread is.
If it is simply to stifle the debate and to demean its status as a valid discussion, that is plain and simple panel abuse.
Would you be prepared to end the debate by declaring your contempt for the persecution of white South Africans?
My question was for caskur, and not just rhetorically. But since she has avoided responding to it, I'll take that as a good indication that she has no good answer but will instead rave about panel abuse (not a real prophecy, since I can see she's done so already) and reply to you.
Of course, it's not for any BCers to judge what constitutes "dreck" at another forum, nor the reasons for a thread split. However, any BCers who want to form their own impressions about the matter can probably do so with a guest visit there.
To your direct question, I will say that of course I decry and denounce what is going on in South Africa. And I'll say a bit more than that. I think the adult view of the situation should be that many US liberals supported the boycott and divestiture on the grounds of detesting apartheid and racism, and the only logically tenable position for them at this point is to detest this
racism and to be activist in resisting it. However, I don't think that will happen.
At the time of the previous boycott, I predicted that this day would soon come, that the Boers and Afrikaaners had seen their day pass and had abused their position, and that retribution or karma by whatever name was inevitable, and if they had any humility they'd GTFO of there ASAP, like thieves in the night, and let the black Africans divvy up the spoils and sort things out however they please. So while in practical or tactical terms I have little sympathy for those whites, I denounce what is happening to them.
