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.)

I have always thought Skinner is pretty level headed. There are a few stable adults at DU (and not all of them are undercover Freepers) with whom one can have a reasonable discussion.

True. There's a handful of posters there that I actually like to read their posts.

Thanks for the info on Alexa.
I read more after my post... and realized the error of my ways
... but you'd already set the record straight.
Thanks.

It's not one of us. DU profile pages keep track of how many posts a given user has made; Starpass has posted well over 7000.
 
Yikes!  That does seal it then.  I don't think I've ever made it past 20 or so posts without being banned there.  I've tried to swell my totals by just posting inoccuous stuff:
Pol Pot Lover: I have my body pierced in 24 places.
[Owl_Eagle]:  That's cool!
 
But there's just too much insanity there.

It is true that polite Fabian type socilist are quite capable of rationalising hideous activities by political groups designated as 'progressive' that is wishing to progress towards state ownership of the means of production.
However, in the Viet-Nam War era it was clear that many leftists were possessed of a kind of hate filled malice towards the larger society they lived in. This was no where more marked than in their personal attitudes towards US military personnel. Soldiers were viewed as basically subhuman. I personally encountered this attitude and the way constant defamation of uniformed personnel eventually had the effect of creating a contemptuous attitude towards members of the armed forces in the larger society. I am not saying this is going to happen in the Iraq insurgency but I do think as we stay the course the left liberals through their influence in the media are going to start trying to taint the image of military people as poor, stupid, and frequently vicious.

>*when* Hillary's prez? Are you sure you don't want to re-word that?
"And you shall love the LORD your God
with all your heart,
with all your soul,
with all your mind,
and with all your strength.'" (Mark 12:30)

Yes, oh yes, I want
to re-word that, with all my
heart, soul, mind and strength...

But I'm afraid that
her time has come regardless
of all that's holy.

So you think Hillary will actually become president whenever she runs? I personally think that if she runs, conservatives, libertarians, and a bunch in between will come together and vote anyone else in office other than her.

Hey, if this poster from DU isn't bloodthirsty and traitorous enough, then consider these "thoughts" put forward by a liberal talk show guest here in Utah (the guest was a doctor!). As Dave Barry would say, "I'm not making this up".

Sorry, I have to stop there. It's too infantile to dwell on. But it does prove, as Michael Savage would state, that liberals are brain-damaged.

And that "58 year old broad" will be the first one to accuse us of hate crimes.

I'll buy that -- and I'll fight it all the way.

I am sorry you had to experience such disgraceful behavior after risking your life for all of us. Thank you and bless you for your service.

Someone just showed me this link. Yikes.
You know, when I lurked over there for a minute during the elections last week, it looked as no one was really around. Maybe it's how they have the site set up.

Would you believe that I just contributed to the Democratic Underground? Yes, the magnificent sum of $.01 (via PayPal) with the admonition to "spend it wisely".
I wish I knew how much of a net loss that was to them.
Obviously, their system falls into the category of "poor systems design".

You should have made it 0.02, so they really know how you felt.

Young
AND
IGNORANT....go read your history books.
Then, learn how to spell and use proper grammar.
After that, learn how to write without using comma splices.
Read more history books and start thinking for yourself instead of listening to the media.
Find and watch the video of the planes crashing into the WTC.
Then you might just understand why we are fighting.
It's not for oil, it's for our FREEDOM....if you really are a "teenager" as you say, then you have so much to learn.

Implying that liberals or Democrats support his kind of poison is absurd. But this exists.

If it exists, liberals support it, therefore it is not absurd, it is however poison, and those who support it are asps at the bosom of our nation.
