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.)

Dang, you're really on the ball, friend. FReepers are something else!

Will you please ping me at MinuteGal when you put it up? I'll probably want to forward it on to some brain-dead folks I know.

The message itself is horrifying and awful, but taking it down is no big shock. Ridiculously outlandish or threatening messages get taken down on FR all the time, don't they?

I was there this AM to see if any were considering suicide over the Governorship elections or MemoGate and the call for Rocktfeller to resign.
I clicked on this, but the page had been deleted. I knew it must have been a beauty that the Democrats wouldn't want to go public. LOL.
Thanks for posting it. I'll e-mail a copy to people who normally don't vote. Add this to the MemoGate, and we have a winner!

>>They boast 30,000 subscribers? Hogwash, lies, and bulls**t!

No - it's true. Many of them suffer from a "Multiple On-Line Personality Disorder" - characterised by signing up with multiple nicknames on web forums, and even going so far as to one person's various personalities aruging with themselves.

And it's not just one bad poster on DU who is responsible for that. There were plenty of posts which responded somewhat affirmatively (aka - "I can see your point"). The posts in which the original author was berated for being such a sick freak were deleted immediately.

This is the pure undiluted hate filled spirit of the counter culture left. The rat poster would be just the right age to have spat on military personnel during the Viet Nam War and cheered for the victory of the VC. These people do hate normal Americans and have no real connection with the nation. Since they possess politically correct views they are self insulated and loath the mass of Americans as being crude, racists, homophobic, cretins who merit many 9-11's so that the enlightened minority can finaly be given the chance to control a shattered nation and force people to live in the correct leftist collectivist manner. Believe me the radical left has always hated normal Americans and always will.

If a Democrat was president, they'd have already gotten their wish, but it would be the Iraqi people dying in droves under torture and piled in to mass graves, instead of US soldiers.

What'a mean 'If'? ...isn't that already written into the history books thanks to the last Democratic president.
Well, on 2nd thought, I doubt that it will make it into any history books.

Here's from another's "sig line"

**** Remember what follows isn't from me, but a DUmmie ****

Take the children out of the room. What follows is a kind word about Saddam Hussein. During his reign, when the war with Iran and US bombings and sanctions made it feasible, the Iraqi people had free education all the way through university and medical school, free medical care, regular food packages for those in need, women's rights superior to anything in the Arab world, and religious toleration for Christians and other non-Muslims.

sick ain't it!

Not only that, but after the thread was locked (not deleted, just lock so no more replies could be posted) threads starting popping up in support of Starpass and what she posted.

"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..."

This is one part of this "58-year-old broad's" rant that I agree with.
To me, "from my cold, dead fingers" was just an expression. Not any longer. Domestic politics haven't been this ugly since 1861.

Well, 30,000 people have registered, 80% of whom are Freepers, trolling around posting the most outrageous things they can think of before they're banned. 
 
I once posted an article there in favor of Mad Bob Mugabe kicking whites off their farms and giving them to his tribal buddies.  They thought there might be something wrong with this, but they couldn't figure out quite what it was.
 
In fact, I wouldn't be at all surprised if that post was written as a gag by one of us, although I'm sure the crowd over there responded with a collective "Why didn't I think of that!"
