Makes sense to me.
Kossacks are naturally self-loathing, but DUmmies seem to require more meds.
Kos see themselves as the elite. The DUmp is for the lesser beings.
They’re pretty much the same people. DU isn’t as well moderated, so its a bit more of a cesspool — but my guess is that every member of DU has a Kos account, and vice versa.
I’m not sure there’s a difference—maybe a slight edge to kos kids as far as arrogance and delusional self-imortance and knowledge.
But there’s no shortage of idiocy at the dump either.
And—they all lie like hell for their socialist causes.
kossacks are anal-retentive. DUmmies are manic-depressive.
DailyKOS authors are paid for by George Soros’ foundation, although it’s supposedly “grassroots.” DemocraticUnderground is a more authentic (*cough, cough*) representation of the hard-left inverse of Freepers. As a result, DailyKOS tends to be slightly more PC, at least given the absurd state of what passes for PC in the left, given that Keith Olbermann is their national spokesperson.
As a result, DU will be more likely to openly express thoughts such as “F*** AMERIKKKA! I HATE CAPITALISM!!! REPUGS JUST WANT EVERYONE TO DIE!!!” whereas DailyKOS will be more “fair”, such as writing instead, “This demonstrates the stupidity of allowing greed to be the main motivation in running our economy: Big Pharma is better off if the sick die quicker, and the Republicans can get rid of Democratic-leaning voters.”
Hey Peej...you’re the expert on this. Can you weigh in?
Hey Charles...you’re the expert on this. Can you weigh in?
Not a lot of difference...the KOSsacks are koholes and the DUmmies are DUholes.
But they all belong to the phylum aholes.
DK = Enemy officers, firing squad, burial.
DU = Enemy combatants, back of the head, buzzards.
Orcs and goblins.
After several years of reading various posts at DU I have come to the belief the active members (maybe 3,000) are either teachers, college students, unemployed, underemployed, on disability, or trying to get disability.
I am not making this up; time and again you read threads of people walking out on jobs, thinking about getting a job, complaining about failing a disability test, mentioning something about the students in their class(es). Those in college usually trie to hide the fact they are college students for some reason. I think it is because they perceive they would be considered more “wordly” if they were old enough to be out of college.
Those over at Daily Kos are the more educated and seem to have employment, but it appears to be mostly government or education.
Kos Kidz are the DUer's well-funded, better educated and more widely connected self-important superiors. Kos Kidz cynically manipulate and screw the more ignorant DUers to maintain superiority over them. "All animals are equal. Some are more equal than others."
DUers are the lumpen proletariat. Kos Kidz are the humpen proletariat.
Added after thinking about it.
I should also add that it appears a much larger percentage of DU members have financial problems as compared to DK people.
Many times I read them talking about either having filed bankrupcty or thinking about filing bankruptcy, being under water on credit cards, etc.
It could be that is the more common string that ties them all together at DU; money problems.
DK: Older, government layabouts being paid by OUR tax dollars.
DU: Younger layabouts collecting OUR tax dollars.
Moochers and looters all.
