A Bad Day at DU (Rolling on the Floor Laughing at the Poor DU'ers...) (OK'd by Jim)
DUH ^

Posted on 11/27/2003 8:31:43 PM PST by Skwidd

Boy, Thanksgiving sure was a bad day at DU.

A thread about Bush's visit to Iraq

Another thread about Bush's visit to Iraq

A thread about Toby Keith's Halftime Show

Just for reference, so we know what kind of people we're dealing with, a poll conducted on DU

Another DU poll

I'm not sure if linking to DU threads is frowned upon or not, but these threads are too good to not share with my fellow Freepers. Comedy gold!

Yes, I just saw the 'no linking to DU' on the submit screen. I've had several requests for the links to the various threads and thought I'd post them. Sorry if I'm out of line.

Ok, no I'm not!!! C'mon, this stuff is hilarious!!!

A darned shame.

Actually the "reason why freeper's visit DU" poll speaks volumes. I've never seen the left referred to in the terms framed of the right by the poll. When your side is so bereft of ideas, inspiration, and moral certainty that you are left incoherently hurling dung you are in a boatload of trouble and really that's exactly the problem the left has.

I know Hillary Clinton isn't on many people's list of favorite people on this board but you know what? While all the democratic candidates are busy bashing the war and placing our troops in danger by pandering to the iraqi resistance propoganda (if not outright encouraging it because each casualty can be counted on their imaginary quagmire abaccus), Hillary was over in Afganistan -- with the troops, the guys who actually count.

The Clinton's won't try and make you feel guilty for supporting your country or the wars we've fought to defend it.

The democratic candidates and the bankrupt intelligenca on the DU give every single impression they thing we should have listened to France.

That's why Hillary is actually a threat, and the rest of the democrats are not.

Anyway, I've watched the left and their media organs self disintigrate because they have so completely lost touch with an American public that still remembers well the sting of 9-11 and fully supports the use, and if necessary, abuse of American military supremacy to fully prosecute this war.

Lord help the US and the democratic party if there is another catastrophic terrorist attack on the US because just as they are being checkmated by a strenghtening economy, another attack will checkmate their anti-war, anti-us rehtoric and may hurt the party so much it will be years before they can redeam themselves from their self-imposed irrelevancy.

81-19 for the good guys - that's unheard of for a CNN poll. Either the DUmpster denizens are too depressed to slam the poll, or President Bush really knocked it out of the park with his trip.

and those troops don't look all that thrilled. At one point there was a shot from the back and not all of them even stood up. That was sort of strange.

It is a characteristic of the romantic past of twentieth century socialism that almost all of the Believers were convinced that the Masses were with them, or were on the verge of being with them.

A DU poster is a member of the Activist Base. He has to believe that Most Americans think as he does. He's invested much of his adult life in the pursuit of his political convictions and the righteousness of his cause. If, as I suspect, the nation is trending Republican, then our DU friend might be forced to question his First Principles.

Neither Democrats nor Republicans are fond of questioning their First Principles. A lot of one's ego is tied up in them.

Thus, a morale boosting trip taken by the President becomes, in his mind, a craven photo-opportunity of an usurper who doesn't deserve to command these men. I've seen lefties. I have one in my family. They are sincere in their convictions and in their hate.

Unfortunately for them, hate is what they have to offer the most of right now. Bush has successfully stolen a march around their flanks on education and prescription drugs, grown the economy, prosecuted the war against Al Qaeda, and successfully deposed Saddam Hussein. The DU crowd, along with the larger party and their outriders in the major media, don't have much left to offer.

Arnold's election was a preview of what is to come. The groping disclosures should have killed his campaign. They didn't, and Arnie understood that they wouldn't, because he was offering something, while the Democrats offered the Same Old Thing. Bush is in the same position, only without the skeletons in the closet.

Be Seeing You,

Chris

I hope they choked on every single bite of organic soybean robo-turkey (or whatever the hell it is those soap-challenged granola eaters have on Thanksgiving).

Hee hee - it's midnight here, and I'm still grinning like an idiot thinking about this.

All I saw was a display of patriotism and a showing and celebration of the flag and freedom. Looked like people having a great time in the good ol' U.S. of A.

Where do you get right wing out of anything that went on there?


This guy incensed them. They are so dense I'm surprised even light can escape. They make it so so easy. The visceral hatred of anything smacking of Patriotism is overpowering.

I know, the funny thing is, they think Hillary legitimately is visiting Afghanistan but Bush is doing a photo op!

Hello, the Commander in Chief of the troops is SUPPOSED to visit them. But what the heck is Hillary doing there?

And the troops hate Hillary - the Clintons have a very bad name among the military. It's amazing the DU'er are in total denial about this. Remember the booing VH1 had to remove from the DVD of Hillary greeting the firemen and policemen? They know the Clintons dropped the ball on terrorism, big time.

That's why the Democrats did their best to disqualify all the military votes they could in Florida.

Your links have but scratched the surface too. They're totally vanity oriented over there, and seems like each and every childmind had to start a thread of it's own.

Kudos to whoever made this famous image, now provided as a public service. Consider it akin to mood music.

I went over there earlier after someone at another forum told me to check. It really was a good laugh!!!
I'm still joyed at the expression on our troops faces during our Presidents visit. They look as happy as when they step of a plane returning home to the US. You just can't wipe the smile off! They really do appreciate and need the support.

In addition, they discount those who disagree with their "enlightened" positions as ignorant, stupid, or both. It is a defense mechanism against the idea that they have wrongly invested so much.

Don't forget that the DU posters suffer from the "echo chamber" effect. EVERYONE they know, everything they see and read from NPR to the NY Slimes, confirms their psychosis.

Bookmarked.

I love reading our DU threads. They're sooo funny, and revealing. And they make great ammunition to use when other boards say I'm lying when I speak of hatred for Bush from the librats.

Those snivelling losers (all five of them) are the best examples of liberal democrat insanity one could hope for.

That's why I'm grateful to those Freepers that bring back redacted news from DU. I once went there on the suggestion of a Freeper, and I just felt so very disgusted by the experience, almost felt the need to reformat my hard drive!

This one is too bizarre ..

He looks like he is reacting to her. He can't make judgment about a "photo-op." She looks like she is reaching out and touching base with the troops and in light of his visit she looks more genuine - aftger all she is actually spending time there. She "wins" on all counts because Bush is now behind in his own game - even though Hillary isn't playing. Go DEMS - even if the soldiers hate you they can't KILL you (well they can, but they won't) and because of that you can reach them, demonstrate your commitment listen to their concerns and throw it back in Bush's face. We should draft prominent Democrats to spend at least a day in Iraq every day until the election (pie in the sky!). Maybe its the Thanksgiving spirit, but I can't hate Bush today

Well, bless my soul! What's wrong with me?
I'm itching like a man on a fuzzy tree
My friends say I'm actin' wild as a pup
Bush is in Iraq
I'm all shook up

My hands are shaky and my knees are weak
I can't seem to stand on my own two feet
Why does Bush have all the luck?
Bush is in Iraq
I'm all shook up

Please don't ask what's on my mind
I'm all mixed up, not feelin' fine
Bush is the guy who I hate best
My heart is about to go in arrest

My tongue gets tied when I try to speak
My insides shake and I'm getting weak
The Eagle has Landed and the troops all cheer
Think I'll soak my head in a bucket of beer

Bush is in Iraq
I'm all shook up
Mm mm oh, oh, DU, DU, foo, foo
I'm all shook up!

Those snivelling losers (all five of them) are the best examples of liberal democrat insanity one could hope for. I only counted three distinguishable personalities: 1. A touchy-feelly female hippie. 2. A very insecure ex-sailor (this being inferred from his vernacular). 2. Someone who laughs at the sailor's jokes and makes fun of the female hippie when she gets touchy-feelly about the enemy. None of them are very well only educated.

Arnold's election was a preview of what is to come. The groping disclosures should have killed his campaign. They didn't, and Arnie understood that they wouldn't, because he was offering something, while the Democrats offered the Same Old Thing.

Another factor that has to be considered is the veritable tidal wave of slime the Rats threw at Arnold, as well as at Rush (while there turned out to be something to the Rush story, at the time it looked like typical Democrat /Gray Davis character assassination tactics). And of course the constant drumbeat of smears and personal attacks against President Bush was there as well.

But thinking further, this really isn't another factor. A tendency of people who have almost nothing to offer is to swing for the fences with what they do have, and completely overdo things. And when the thing you're overdoing is personal attacks, the backlash is overwhelming and swift. So what I've just described is really just a logical extension of your point.

May the Democrats continue to remain oblivious to this. They are simply too dangerous to the wellbeing of this country to be a major political force at the current time, and in their current configuration. They need to be completely marginalized, and having them continue to behave as they are is the best way to accomplish this quickly. A couple of decades in the wilderness is what is needed for the few remaining adults in the Democratic Party to either get the lunatic lefties into the back seat where they belong, or to leave them to their own devices and form a serious opposition party that has something more to offer than hatred for Republicans and hatred for America.

While all the democratic candidates are busy bashing the war and placing our troops in dange.....Hillary was over in Afganistan -- with the troops, the guys who actually count.

Shrewd and calculating. Gotta give 'em credit for knowing how to 'play' the game of politics. My guess is the Enquirer will next run a story about Toby and Hillary having an affair and how aroused she became at the sight of the American flag laced upon his briefs.

Ladies and gentlemen, the 'debates' have begun.

The second poll had a total of twenty-six votes on it. Where's the 30,000 registered DUers?

I also visited the runalgore site earlier. It sounded like a grassroots effort to "draft" algore to run. I was visitor 112.

I'm a sick man to visit these places! Shower time.
