THE POST: Here's what Democratic Underground didn't want you to see

FROM THE 'DEMOCRATIC UNDERGROUND': A new low for the far left: a post titled, "Why I Hope the Bloodshed Continues in Iraq." I kid you not.

 
DEMOCRATIC UNDERGROUND DECIDES TO EDIT: Hmmm. After I linked to a truly hideous posting celebrating bloodshed in Iraq, they take the page down. I should have copied the page. First CBS. Now DU. Shine a light on them and they scram.

THE POST: Here's what Democratic Underground didn't want you to see:

I Hope the Bloodshed Continues in Iraq
Well, that should bring the bats out of the attic with fangs dripping. I won't be hypocritcal. It is politically correct, particularly in any Dem discussion to hope and pray and feel for our troops and scream "bring them back now". I'm fighting something bigger.
I'm a 58 year old broad and I can tell you that what is going on in our country isn't the usual ebb and flow of politics where one party is in power and then another; where the economy goes through ups and downs.......yawn, yawn--just wait a bit and things will turn out peachy keen. That stupid la-la land is over.
I realize that not every GI Joe was 100peeercent behind Prseeedent Booosh going into this war; but I do know that that is what an overwhelming number of them and their famlies screamed in the face of protesters who were trying to protect these kids. Well, there is more than one way to be "dead" for your country. They are not only not accompishing squat in Iraq, they are doing crap nothing for the safety, defense of the US of A over there directly. But "indirectly" they are doing a lot.
The only way to get rid of this slime bag WASP-Mafia, oil barron ridden cartel of a government, this assault on Americans and anything one could laughingly call "a democracy", relies heavily on what a shit hole Iraq turns into. They need to die so that we can be free. Soldiers usually did that directly--i.e., fight those invading and harming a country. This time they need to die in defense of a lie from a lying adminstration to show these ignorant, dumb Americans that Bush is incompetent. They need to die so that Americans get rid of this deadly scum. It is obscene, Barbie Bush, how other sons (of much nobler blood) have to die to save us from your Rosemary's Baby spawn and his ungodly cohorts.
I'm not saying this represents anything but a radical fringe. Implying that liberals or Democrats support his kind of poison is absurd. But this exists. And it's part of what's fueling the anger of the far left. (By the way, Democratic Underground has more traffic than this site, Instapundit, the Nation or the New Republic. It boasts over 30,000 subscribers.)

That's not "anger"....it's killer-instinct hatred.

Is that true? If so, why?

I get the "Best of the Web" e-mailed, and it was noted there as well. Saw the DU link was dead a couple of hours ago.

Thanks for posting. A fellow FReeper sent me a link to this while it was still up, and I didn't go see it then. Didn't want to go to DU. Then, later, I did. It is horrifying.

Sullivan undercuts just how common this attitude is on the left. No, it certainly isn't everyone, but it is a significant minority.

Bascially, if they lose elections, America isn't really a democracy, and if Americans have to die to advance the Left's agenda, so be it.

The next time a DU comes to FR to troll, perhaps you should point them to this thread and ask them how they can value the lives of their neighbors and countrymen so poorly.

There was a thread here the other day entitled something like "Who cares about dead Iraqis". That thread was removed as well.

I don't, laughingly or otherwise, call our country a democracy because it isn't. This "58 year-old broad" reminds me of the incredible wisdom our founding fathers possessed when they constructed our republic.
